I nodded at her comment and nodded a second time to the name, "I would doubt it highly if he thought anything out of the ordinary about the name" I said as I finished the sewing and tied it neatly off insidethe spine. "There we go, one "new cover" I said as I used my magic to scrape my name with precision from the covers to hide the changing of covers.

"Now with that done we'have to wait till tomorrow to show Wonderwise the thing to avoid to much suspicion" I told Sonora, "want to observe the creation of a spell?" I asked, excitement in my voice, it was always a stunning sight to behold the making of a new spell.

Sonora and the council

"The one that probably have me stuck as a death song forever? Can'ttttt wait" Sonora said sarcastically with a montone voice

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once the word's out of Lyder's mouth the reactions soon followed. Gasps, concerned mumbling, panic, fear, anger, whispering echoes through out the hall 

"Darn" Hala said softly "and here I thought my news going to be the one getting out the most reaction"

Wonderwise cleared their throat and silent the room once more "I believe everyone here known how important the almighty stone is too us and how worrying it is for it to become crack"

"Is there a traitor amoung us!? some maniac that want to end us all!?" there's a shout amoung the crowd

"I don't think that's the case, the room has been under supervision all the time. This case happened naturally which is what made this situation more concerning"

A multiple whispering and mumbles were sound again but Wonderwise pressed on "The stone's power is not infinite, it needs to be feed by soul of the dea,th as well, this has never occur to us much considering that It is the way of life out there" They spat in the last part earning a humming agreement from the older dragons within the council "but the stone also grant us posperity in the way that define nature, we live years and years of that posperity in this safe heaven until time ran out"

"Because there's no dea,th" One of the younger female eggbiter in glasses connected the dot

"And the stone's starving and dying from it" Wonderwise concluded

The council seemed to be in deep thought, several dragons mumbling to each other "It is unknown how much longer this stone has, even with the small crack like this I feared it might already have effect some dragons health and behavior"

"That why the number of patient drastically increase!" A scauldron gasped

"There's been a serveral report of dragons undergo the mental change and drastic changes of behavoir that harm the others in the recent days" Hala grimmanced "But we always come into conclusion that those are marely a mental sickness of the individual, Wonderwise you could have told me!"

Wonderwise once again ignored the backlash "In theories, the way to fix this is too feed the stone which could mean the high amount of life we need to sacrifice which bring us to this meeting"

"Can't there be other way other than feeding the stone?" the red eggbiter spoke again "Our technology  has develope so much, there should be a way to fix the stone physically"

"oh by gluing them back together" Wonderwise's sound almost mocking "I know you have high confident in your technology and reserch department, my dear Silver "but the stone's magic, I doubt you could power it back up by something lesser that it, although" Wonderwise paused. "Your right that there might be the other way than sacrificing dragon's souls. I believe this is your queue, Hala. You have something you wish to report?"

Hala huffed "Darn right, I have. There's a report of human being sighted from several dragons. Usually it's all fault report by some younglings who don't know anything better but I can say that this one's real, for I just left that encounter to take part in this darn meeting!"

"Green, hungers, small, broken" I listed.

Up where the angry Rumblehorn had left, three new and also angry looking dragons were coming their way. "They don't look nice" I said, nodding in their direction. "Leave?" I asked, hugging the Snafflefangs leg.

I cocked my head at Sonora's sarcastic comment, "all magic has its consequences" I said as I began to work on the spell once more, the letters of the spell-in-progress glowing blue and floating in front of me while the books I was using as referances began to hover at an easy to read agle. Every now and then I would talk about what I was doing, trying to explian the complex web that magic was to Sonora.

((skip to evening when the spell is finished?))

Gyro and the guards (I really want to call the guard cops D'X)

((@mech, yeah sure....do you think that spell is going to go really well? because I think this can be the opatunity to brieftly knock her out and get her to talk to the voice but this is up to your decision of how well do you want Amrahn spell casting to be))

"Green, hunger, small, broken"

".....Right" Gyro said not sure if he actually recognize it but it did reminded him of something, oh dear if only he can sure this human his book and collections...

Three other guards' coming their way and imediatally the human seemed scared, hugging his leg and pleading him to leave the place "Aww...little human, you know I can't, Hala made it clear that she want me to stay right here and keep your eyes on you.......not sure which is more important, what if you leave, do I have to stay here or be with you and keep the eyes on you? okay now she cleary HASN'T made it very clear, has she?"

It was a naive rambling of a snafflefang without any ill intention that somehow turn to be a decent escape plan "Alright human, you can leave if you want, The awesome Gyro will follow you not far behind to keep his eyes on you!" He winked. The guards while approaching, hasn't come as close yet which might give them the head start.

Lyder

He listened to the bickering that was traveling between the council members. Until they all quieted down enough for Hala to explain her discovery that has been traveling throughout the kingdom. There were humans inside the kingdom. And NOBODY bothered to tell him? Did they just all assume that he knew about everything in the whole world?

 

"Humans!?" He asked harshly throughout the council room. "How many? Where? How long? When? Are they crawling everywhere?" 

 

He took a deep breathe in and blew out through his nostrils so hard that it blew off the little red dragon's glasses right off her face. "Where are these humans," he said asked again, trying to hold in his temper, but it still showed through his voice.

((sure, that could actually work really well))

 

It took me the rest of the day to finish the spell and I was thuroughly taxed for energy. I laid the finished spell down into the paper and the glowing letters faded into black ink. HA, so much for being rusty I exclaimed to myself as I looked triumphantly at Sonora, "want to give it a try?" I asked with a big grin that only made me look goofy.

Sonora and the council

Sonora jerk awake upon hearing Amrahn's voice--something other than his previous mumbur of giblish spell of course. Sonora must have dozed of at some point. She knew it is important but there's only so much the impatient girl can take when she understand none of the word. She shook herself awake and tried to look as active as possible when the deathsong turn around to grin at her. She returned the equally goofy grin and a thumb up.

---------------------------------------------------------------

The other council dragons went silent almost immediatally, not dare questioning the king's wrath. Hala however, wasn't even flinch when she replied "There's a report of 1 human sight so far and I can confirm that. It's being last seen near the non habitat area around the glacier wall and should be under restriction by my dragons as we speak. The report came in yesturday, although said that it was being seen in zone 2 with the caretaker Starflight whom my dragon believe's trying to protect it but later in the morning it was being report and found again by me"

"Your majesty" Begun Wonderwise. They know about the king's hatred against mankind but right now they must calm him down and remind him of the more important matter at wings. But Wonderwise can't help but notice.....they're at the glaciers and not Amrahn's house? "I understand how upsetting and worrying this must be, but please remain clam we have a matter of the almighty stone that we still need to discuss"

"Oh please, remind me again what you about to say, Wonder?" Hala snarled "Because I was under the pressumtion that it's relate to this human, that's why you prompt me to report it in the first place and for the record I intend to do that either way--"

"Human's soul as hard as it is to believe is more valueable than us...to the stone it is" Wonderwise explained "A single human soul can replace many dragon lives we otherwise have to sacrifice"

this, obviously cause another uproar in the room

"What are you waiting for then!?"

"To He,ll with the human!!"

"There's a human on the loose!!"

"How does it got in anyway!?"

He tried to listen to Wonder's words, but they hardly did anything close to calm down. The room arose in uproar again about the death of the humans. Lyder scrunched his nose in angry.

 

"ENOUGH!" He yelled to the council, immediately quieting them down. He turned to Hala and quitted his voice. "You're excused from the meeting. Get those humans and bring them here," he ordered her.

 

He turned towards Wonderwise. "In any of your scrolls does it say the equivalence of the human to dragon souls?"

Sonora gave a funny looking smile and strange lookg human gesture. I cocked my head slightly and figured it was a signal that she was good to go. Nodding I set her on the floor and brought the paper to my side so that I could see both it and her.

I took a deep breath and began going through the spell with confidence. The words flowed from me and the magic began to work, a lightl green glow had begun to form around Sonora. I finished reading the spell and watched, not knowing how long it would take Sonora to transform.

There was a pop and the spell backfired slightly and knocked both of us out though it continued to slowly change Sonora.

Sonora, Wonderwise and Stonewarden!

Hala, knew when to keep her mouth shut, said nothing and bow to her king before left the room. The room remain silent as those dragons watch the king turned toward the sorceror again and ask them question.

"There is, your majesty" They said "and it indicate that roughy, one human souls is equilent to fourty dragons souls"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

what happened?

Sonora groaned trying to sit up. Trying to wreck her brain to find the reason why she end up in this position in the first place. But it proved to be a hard task when there's hundred of screaming voice all around her, and then it hit her.

"This again!?" Sonora yelped. She has been knocked out, it must be. Oh she's going to have a word with that nerdy dragon once she woke up that for sure. Sonora looked at her as she realized that but sign in relieve as she saw that it's still a perfect human hand. She quickly cast that thought aside though as she turned to look at the darkness surounding her

"Oi!!!" Sonora yelled, cupping her mouth "You, weird voice with future vision guy that's probably not the stone, are you here!??"

silent, actualy silent, those screaming stop all together asthough they just noticed her pressence just now and then...

"I am"

Wow, that's not creepy at all "Who are you, what are you? can you...show yourself?" Sonora wasn't sure if...whatever this voice belong too would be able to do that if she's already inside of it, she think? the thing proved her wrong though as at her side suddenly meterialized a form of a skrill. Sonora looked at it with uncertainty and then he talked "I am what used to be a soul of Stonewarden"

"What, like that's your name name? You look after the stone and your name is Stonewarden!? wow...and Amrahn have a gal to called our name lame" Said Sonora "Wait, what do you mean use to be? are you inside the stone?"

"It's impossible to maintain individual sanity after being turn into the energy that feeding the stone, my case is different, I am not of the last stone you know but it simply my soul that changest it original value, such as yours"

"Ummm....not sure if I understand that"

"After I feed on the fracture of the broken stone from the war, my narute of soul changes, as well as my body, I have become an anomaly. A stone with a soul of a dragon"

Sonora tried to follow and then it clicked "So wait...! you are what Amrahn is about to do! so it can work!"

"I am the only soul, my power is not enough to be a replacement of the stone and save dragon kind, all I can do is give my son power but even that brought more pain than fortune" The skrill looked sad " Time is also a playground to me in this state, I can see what about to happen and so I tell you, human, the coming of war that would finally wipe out our kind"

"Well you might miss it the last time but I did try to tell you that Amrahn and I will help, plus you're not really being helpful showing me the other human and not telling me where to look" Said sonora "why me though...? a human, why not your son, or Amrahn"

"You are an anomaly as well, your soul is changing as we speak and thus change the flow of time....I see failures, human child, but if there's a change that brough slight hope, it would be you. I tried on other human as well but alas, he's currently under the clutch of Foxtrot," Sonora suddenly saw the vision of the underground market and a man being locked away then it changed into a green ice within the cage " My son, Nightcaster is currently being locked away. I do not wish  to have him turn into the stone by Amrahn

"I can still see failure, you failed to save the other human, you failed to save my son, you failed to save the dragons but the you i saw is no longer exist, as an anomaly you become, you define everything I've known, perhaps this is how it's meant to be"

"What do you mean!" Sonora's shouting now, as she know she began to slip away she could no longer see the skrill now and the screaming is back "What change what's happening to me---I"

and the multiple scream turn into a single one, her own scream as she's jolt awaken

Forty?

 

Forthy souls worth of dragons is hidden within one single human. This could be what saves the stone. Even if they only do find th one human, that's forty dragons that don't have to die. Forty dragons who don't have to be sacrificed for the greater good, like his father used to say.

 

"Yes," he began. "It will be vital to find this human. Council, has any of your thoughts be of importance in this meeting?"

Amrahn

I started and then shot awake at the sound of someone screaming, I noted that the screaming had a melodic feel to it. I shook my head and body to wake myself the rest of the way up and looked around for the source of the screaming and Sonora. "Man I guess I am a little out of practice at putting new spells into use" I said to myself in a low tone.
I found the screaming coming from a (insert colors here) Death song who was sitting up where Sonora had been.
"Sonora... Is that you? Did it work?" I questioned the new Death Song before me.

Sonora, the council and Stonewarden!

As soon as a question left Amrahn's mouth, Sonora's scream died down and replace with a growl, her head snapped toward him "You!" Then she charged and tried to hit him "What have you done to my---body?" Her voice suddenly became high as she realized that the hand she's used to hitting on the deathsong isn't clawed but a normal human hand but a relieve is short-live if not non-existanse as she noticed that she's wearing a different glove and a different clothing, and the different became more bizzare as she explored her body, she wore a hat now!? a frill like hat and it got horns? and her clothing style's made from different fabric and the color and pattern's closely resembling with---and her hair's long and tied into a pony tail---what the

"What happened to my body!?"

'It's a mare perception'

"OH THOR! you're still here!?"

Sonora jumped when she heard Stonewarden voice, she looked around trying to find the ghostly skrill but was failed. His voices, however still lingered 'It appeared that this...special magic that change the nature of soul also effect some connection with  the stone as well, it's in no mean a failed magic, it had worked perfectly, too perfect. Your souls now of from both world and whatever you want to be or how the other choose to see you will be what it's appeared'

"So you mean, you saw me as a dragon?" Sonora asked Amrahn, it must be weird for him to see her listening and talking to no one all the sudden since he coulsn't hear Stonewarden 

'He wanted his magic to work and it did, the other dragons would see you as their own as well but you will always see yourself as a human. Alas with the nature of this magic, you can no longer be the same girl you've saw yourself to be'

Which is why she got a deathsong hat only her can saw!? what kind of magic is this!? Sonora thought, she want to scream again. From her spective, she's still the same height and have to look up to Amrahn but for him...she must be as tall as him now...

"I'm....a hybrid!? A Lycanwing is is is is this permanent!?" She ended up rambling, this must sound like a nonesense to a dragon who can only see that his magic has fully turn her into a deathsong

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The council sprung up into live again upon question

"Yes, I would like to know if we should let the citizen know about this, both the human and the stone" Squeaked the aged Night terror who's in charge of news "Two dragons already got in away and tried to help a human, a human!"

"I don't know, I still don't think this is a permanent fix of the situation...buying us more time for however long the next human will come" Silver spoke rather confidently once she fixed her glasses back on her snout, with a little help from the scauldron next to her "You say before, we murder dragons to return the stone's energy, but what if instead we returned the power itself, something's  also powered by the stone?" 

Various loud complain from the head of economy, power and mine were sounded. Wonderwise tsked in disapproval.

He looked over at the first dragon who talked. "No. Don't tell anybody- your kids, your wives, your neighbors- nobody. If the public finds out that stone has cracked, it will send world wide terror throughout the whole kingdom." With backup of how this council has acted. he added softly in his head.

 

But Silver's thoughts prolonged in his head. A different way other than death. Seemed impossible at this rate. But when he looked to the council as a whole, there seemed that there may be another way.

 

"Does anyone have anything to say that doesn't revolve around talking over one another and complaining to me? If not, this meeting is over."

Sonora's screaming stopped with a sudden exclamation, asking what I had done to her as she charged me and flailed one of her little Death Song arms it what seemed like an attempt to slap me. I kind of just sat there and let the scene play on, finding it utterly confusing. She asked again what i had done but then suddely exclaimed that someone was still here and seemed to be talking with them.

I nodded simply when she asked if I saw her as a Death Song, still greatly confused. "Yeah you are a Death Song... just like how my spell was supposed to work... do you not see yourself as a Death Song... and who are you talking to?" I asked as she she began to ramble.

Everyone, also exposition

"Do you know a skrill named Stonewarden?" Sonora asked, she recalled seeing this name somewhere before, probably in one of the death song's book "Well it appears that it is him that spoke to me in the dream back then...he said something about being some sort of single soul dragon stone hybrid or something? and he can talk to me because I am different now thanks to you? either way he said that I got two souls now and I will appear however you want to see which one. He said that the dragon should see me as one too because they don't know I'm a human in the first place. He also show me where the other human is and he doesn't like it if you're going to use his son's soul to make a new stone....which is going to work by the way" Sonora caught her breath after let all the information out

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The council settling down once more. Silver didn't look very happy at her treatment. It's hard to be the younger generation within the sea of walking fossils but she kept her mouth shut. With silence Wonderwise decided to conclude "Very well, so it's decided that we won't let the citizen know about the stone nor the human. And since the human is the only way to fix this dire situation it will be our main priority to turned in its soul and fix the stone for once." They turned to look at Lyder if he's going to have any final word for the meeting or he would dismiss it

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The guards watched nervously at Hala. The rumblehorn looked like she's very close at turning into a monsterous nightmare and exploded into flame right then and there.

"What do you mean he got away?" She asked, voice is on the edge of the fault calmness

"Maa'm, when we got here the human's already fleeing. The snafflefang attempted to tried to catch it or at least that what it appear to be. Unfortunatly we lose sight of both soon after" The guard report sheepishly, he then flinched when Hala throw a fire ball at one of the glaciers out of anger then leap up in the air "Search, Gyro's house!" She ordered "I will take full responsibility if someone's to lecture the inappropiateness, I want that human now!"

"Yes, Maa'm!"

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Unknown to the guard however, the snafflefang and the human aren't at the said house

"I never bring everyone here before, I want to but no one seem to care about the stone but you, however--" Gyro smiled at the human "A human with the love for stone like you deserve to see my collection! maybe it can even help your unfortunate stone you have been spoken of, now" he fenched one of the book "What you've described before almost match up with the one and only almighty stone, at least currently, it's no where small though unless you talking about the shard or the broken bit, that would be a catastrophy"

He didn't move as the council turned to him once more. As everything was said and done between the council members, Lyder pushed back his shoulders to make him looked a foot or so taller.

 

"As you go about your day today, act as if you've never were here. Act like you haven't heard any news of the stone. Don't act like you should completely not be a part of the community either, because you'll look supicous on many levels. Go about you normal business. You are all excused from this meeting."

I nodded along as Sonora let the information tumble out of her mouth. "Well I didn't know Stonewarden personally, my father did though: he was one of the protectors of another stone, one of the ones that were destroyed, and after that it was said that he di,ed though there is a myth he did something with the remnants of the destroyed stone... I guess it was not a myth" I said as I thought on the rest of what she said.

"So my spell worked, sort of, and now your in some sort of limbo of perception.." I said out loud as I thought and decided to test this thought. I want to see her as a human and thought about seeing her as such and to my surprise the Death Song disappeared and I saw Sonora with some strange new clothing.

I leaned down to be at eye level with her, "this is very strange.." I said as I pondered the rest of her information, "so this is permanent for you? and how do you know I will succeed?" I asked her, still very confused.

"well I guess, if you put it that way" She replied, her earlier anger toward the deathsong fade a little upon seeing his confusion, you and me both, buddy "Stonewarden said he fed on the fragment of the broken stone or something like that so he turned into.....that...it sounded a lot like what you're going to do but he couldn't replace the current stone because he's only one dragon and not stronge--woah" she gasped when a small amber materialized in her hand during her wild gesture as she explained "I can do this now? Did you see me as an ordinary size death song before or the tiny baby one?--this is freaky"

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

As the councilwing left with a low mumbling. Wonderwise still stayed by Lyder's side "And now we wait?"

But after a few moments of sioence and Silver's thoughts filling his mind. He turned towards Wonder. "About what Silver said, killing the human wouldn't be long term, will it?"

I listened intently as Sonora spoke about Stonewarden and how what he did was similar to what my father had figured out. I chuckled lightly when Sonora made some amber in her hands as she gesticulated wildly, "looks like you gained more than a new form, and yes I saw you as a full grown Death Song, you were actually staring my in the eye" I told her, "I could not agree more... did you see yourself as a Death Song?" I questioned.

Wonderwise and Sonora

Wonderwise signed, they hate to admit it "No" they said "but it's our best available option"

that reminds me...

"I actually talked to Celestine's offspring this morning. Amrahn the engineer, I believed you've met him" Wonderwise said " I actually told him about the stone, --don't worry he won't tell anyone, I just want to hear his input as a royal engineer and sorcerror at such young age he said something rather parculier though, something about making a way to create a new almighty stone, said it's in his late father's journal and everything"

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sonora's half listening as she tried singing, her voice sound different too, possibly the most impressive tone she's ever let it out of her mouth but she stopped as Amrahn asked her question. So she tried to think of herself as a death song, to her disappointment though, nothing change "No, I wonder why"

'Human are a close minded race it would take something else to bring you to see yourself as something different'

"Hey, watch it" Sonora hissed "Well at least I got cool new powers and shapeshifting ability that I cannot control, so what do you say. Let's go rescue some humans"

Yes he remembered the young deathsong, the old he talked to about the broken railway. He nodded along as Wonder spoke on. "A new stone?" He asked. If that was possible, they might not even need a human, though they shouldn't be running around have anyways.  "We should try to look more about making a new stone. Did Amrhan say anything about how to make one?"

I shrugged when Sonora seemed to try to and questioned why she could not make herself change. I cocked my head when she seemed to hiss at someone. I nodded when she said that it was time to rescue another human. I imagined Sonora as a Death Song and she appeared as a dragon once more. "Come on Sulara, let's go have a look at the area that you saw the human in, though I think a flightl lesson would do some good" I said as I gestured for Sonora to follow me outside so that I could teach her how to fly.
