You would have had to have known this was coming.  A chapter named after my book.  This is the most "feel" chapter I've ever done.  The past few chapters have been a lot of firsts for me too, as I have just recently written my 100th chapter.  Once I get the math right and sit and count it out, I'll tell which one it is.

 

Things really start to get interesting in this chapter.  Questions are answered, yet new ones are asked.

 

Please comment what you think of my story as it is nearing its conclusion.

 

Thanks for reading and your continued reading!  :D

Thoughts of Guilt

 

Chapter 33

 

Thoughts of Guilt

 

          “Raaahhhh!” I roared as I rushed at Truvor.

          CLANG, went the metal of the swords from one foe to the other.  As that happened, Anora started to take on the orange Whispering Death as Hyrith along with Cazi tried to figure out how to seal… well the seal for good.  All of this is happening in a dome-shaped cave room no bigger than probably the arena back on Berk.

          Truvor came at me more with his attacks while I did most of the blocking.  I am trying to size up how he attacks, before I do so I know when and where to attack him at.

          Anora was attacking the orange Whispering Death in close combat while Annabeth was still riding it.  Sparklebolt and Sun Rose helped defend Hyrith and Cazi as well as take pot shots at the Whisper.

          “So Hyirth,” I said while fighting Truvor.  “Can’t you seal it for good?”

          “I don’t know,” Hyrith replied.  “I need to decode the inscription.  Give me some time.”

          Cazi then stated, “I don’t know if you are even we have that long.”

          The fights went on for a few minutes before I could finally figure out a way of attack; though it could be Truvor is baiting me to think that, but I must take the change:  After he swings right and then left, he follows through to the point that a well placed kick to the hand should at least give me a chance to overtake him if not have him drop his sword.

          I started to ask Truvor a question to buy some time, but I had to say it in between blocks and parries, “Hey… Tru… vor…?”

          “What?” he replied and seemed greatly annoyed… I wonder why…?

          “I was… wonde… ring… what the… name of… your dra… gon was?  Having to… keep sa… ying… orange Whis… PERING…,” I stopped for a moment because Truvor swung so close to my face after he tried attacking low, that I did not have enough time to react to block high.  I leaned back so far I nearly fell over backwards.  I jumped back a bit so I would have the time to finish my question, “That was a little close… Anyway… What’s your dragon’s name?”

          “Firestorm!” he answered, trying to strike fear in my heart as he lunged for me.

          I merely side stepped him, although we brushed shoulders, and kicked him in the back.

          The fear tactic did not work… I was already in fear from the on-going battle, but did not let him see it, “Nice name!” I complemented.  “‘Firestorm’ sounds cool yet deadly at the same time.  I like it; though to me, sounds more like a Monstrous Nightmare name.”

          The kick was somewhat of an ad-lib, but it was effective; Truvor stumbled forward into the back wall and hit his head.  Truvor turned to glare at me as he wiped, with his right thumb, some blood on the corner of his lip on the right side which was from the impact with the wall.

          Intentionally, I mocked him, “Aw… does dah poor ‘lil Truvy have a cut on his ol’ lip?... Do you want me to punch de utter side so that both corners are evenly bleeding?”

          Truvor looked at his hand, rubbed the small drip of blood off the corner of his mouth, and then wiped it on his shirt.  He then remarked, “You’re going to regret that.”

          “Oh really?” I replied and waved my hand to “come here”.  “Come and prove it, bro.”

          Now I initiated my attacked.  I waited to Truvor to do the swung sequence he seemed to always use:  Major swing to the right… ducked under that…. Major swing to the left… followed through too much… With both hands on my sword faked a block, lifted up, and then pinned his sword against the wall on the right.  Then did a move my mother recently taught me:  I swiftly, right after pinning his sword, did a complete three-sixty degree turn and landed right kick on Truvor’s hands.  He did in fact drop his sword, staggered back, and then layed up against the back wall stunned.

          He actually started to laugh as he held his right hand, in pain I am guessing.  He then said, “censored ha ha, Jarl… I wasn’t expecting that.  I was trying to bait you into a trap.  But you baited me and trapped me in my own trap.  Nice move…, but not good enough.”

          Truvor showed me he had grabbed the pommel, to his sword, from my pocket.

          “How’d you…?” I started but realized he did it as he lunged at me the first time and brushed shoulders.

          Hyrith had looked up and to see me starting for Truvor as he was smacking the pommel back into place.  Hyrith then yelled, “NO!” as he tried to run over too.  Truvor also had the one mystical glove on.  Just the split second before Hyrith could get over and I could knock his sword out of us hand with mine, Truvor bent down and hit the ground with the glove.

          BOOM!

          A very cold and powerful rush of wind hit Hyrith and I, knocking us up off the ground about five feet and threw us back against the walls.  Annabeth with her dragon, Cazi and hers, and Sun Rose got pushed back into the walls; even Firestorm was affected.  I had a rough hit with the wall and then ground.  The wall was bad enough, but the ground felt has hard as ice.  I opened my eyes… but could not believe what I saw… The ground is ice!

          The impact with the wall and ground weakened me as I felt my strength fail me as I tried to get up.  I managed to at least prop myself up on one arm, my right one, as I looked up.

          “Annabeth!” I saw her and Anora completely knocked out from the blast.  “Cazi… Hyrith!”  They too were knocked out and lying motionless on the ground next to the walls.

          “What have you done?!” I demanded as Truvor slowly walked towards me.

          I started to shake furiously as it got extremely cold the closer he got to me.  The whole dome is white as snow.

          Truvor squatted down next to me as I felt I was passing out from the extreme cold, “‘What have I done?’ you ask.  Well… my fine fellow… extracting revenge!”

          Truvor out reached his sword and a feeling of blindness and fear as extreme as the temperature and… I passed out!

 

          “Jarl….  Jarl?  Jarl….,” came a voice in a very soft tone as if they were far away.  The voice slowly started to come in louder.  I felt myself waking up.  “Jarl… Wake up sleeping ‘beauty’!”

          I flickered my eye lids as I tried to focus on where I was.  I then was fully awake.  I closed my eyes as I sat up, instantly grabbing my head.

          “Gah… it hurts… yet now bump?” I stated.

          I opened my eyes to get my bearings.  I seemed to be underground.  How far?  I could not tell.  The air being stuffy was a big indicator of being underground.  There was a greenish like bar-door in front of us, keeping me from getting out.  I looked around me and saw a good number of my friends sitting and standing with defeated looks on just staring at nothing in particular.  After sitting up I realized I was on the floor.  I turned to see Elsa sitting on her side next to me.

          “Was that you?” I asked.

          “Yeah,” she replied, trying to smile.  “Though I don’t think you look much like a ‘beauty’, more like a ‘blockhead’.”

          “Haha, very funny,” I retorted.

          “He’s alive!” Thoreous quipped sarcastically.

          I looked at him and smiled, “I seemed to be feeling some déjà vu here.”

          I got to my feet and scanned my surroundings.  All of my friends are here, except for the Dragon Academy Riders.

          I asked them about it and Hattori, explained, “We got separated in battle and seemed to be on our own from there.  Arrows, boulders, and fireballs flying every which way… it was only a matter of time before we were captured.”

          “I take it that is where we are now?” I questioned.

          “Yep,” answered Meen.  “They even took mah pans!” Meen folded her arms and looked perturbed.

          Annabeth then got up, “They took all of our weapons… but I’m glad you are alright.  Of all of us, you were the one that was out the longest.”

          “I think I have a knack for that,” I said trying to make light of the situation.  It was shot lived.

          “Well,” Cazi began as she stood up too.  “At least Hiccup and the gang escaped, they could go for help.”

          Cullan then stated, “How could ‘help’, help us now?”

          Out of the blue… well cave… came a screeching sound that sounded like a door opening up.  This got everyone to their feet as we rush to the barred door and cell walls in front of us.  Look to the left, cave wall.  In front of us, more prison cells.  Look to the right… you would never guess who was walking down the hallway towards us… with their hands tied behind their back.

          Cazi then sighed, “Duuuhhh-aaand…. d’I spoke…. too soon.”

          It was The Academy Riders.  They were followed by a two shot people and an older man, who happened to be Truvor.  The two people looked to be kids of our age.  The one is a girl but had a hood on with a mask over their eyes.  The mask covered her nose and a good majority of her upper face, so I could not recognize who the girl is, but the other kid was Ohmarr!  Though the girl’s black hair looked very familiar I could not put my finger on it.

          Truvor started to bang on the cells with a spear, “Alright you kids get back!  I’ve got company for you.”

          We got back only a step from the door as Truvor banged a couple more times on the bars.  The cell door was opened.  In went Ruffnut, Tuffnut, Snotlout, Fishlegs, Astrid and Hiccup.  The twins had their oblivious look on their face Fishlegs looks scared, Snotlout looks angry; though he always looks like that.  Astrid on the other hand looks extremely mad like she is going to blow any second; and Hiccup just looks worried.

          “What are you in for?” I asked Hiccup.

          He ignored me.

          “Never mind,” I said as I realized this is not the time and place for any more jokes.

          Right as Astrid was going by, the Ohmarr pushed Astrid in.  She was not expecting it and fell to the ground.  Since her hands were tied behind her, she could not stop her fall.  Ashley was close by and barely caught her as she fell forward or else Astrid would have nearly face-planted.

          Hiccup then declared, “Why you!”

          Hiccup shoved back at Ohmarr, knocking him back into the other cell.  Truvor then grabbed Hiccup and shoved him into our cell, closing the door behind Hiccup.  Hiccup was able to maintain his balance to keep from falling.

          Truvor then told Ohmarr, “What have I told you?  You push your captives and they’ll push back.”  Truvor then looked at us and said, “You guys are now my prisoners as I am your captor.”

          Cazi and Meen just laughed.  Cazi said quite sarcastically, “Wow, brilliant deduction their maestro, mind blown; I would have never figured that out.  We being in here and you being on the other side… the thought of us being the prisoners would have never occurred to me.”

          With that, we all laughed a little bit and Hiccup smiled some but that quickly went away; Astrid, though, laughed very, very dryly as Ashley helped her back up.  Ashley helped untie Astrid, Thoreous and Cullan helped with the Twins, Pat helped Snotlout, Elsa helped with Fishlegs’, and I helped with Hiccup’s.

          Meen the added, “Couldn’t have said it better mah-self.”

          “I was thinking that,” I spoke.  “But you said it first.”

          Truvor looked angry for a second and then looked like he was back in control, “Yeah, well you laugh now.  Wait until you are in here for a few days.”

          “What are your plans, Truvor?!” Hiccup demanded.

          “My plans?” Truvor began tapping his chin with his left thumb.  “Oh, my plans… Let me see here… Don’t the bad guys usually tell their plans right about here?  GR made that mistake; one I’m not going to make.  You’re smart.  Figure it out for yourself.”

          With that Truvor and the girl walked off.  I did not understand how in the name of a motherless yak could Truvor know GR.

          Ohmarr however stayed.

          “You comin’ Ohmarr?” give me a second, I… I want to see if I can get anything out of them.”

          “You’re not going to get anything out of them, I can promise you that,” said Truvor.

          “I want to at least try,” Ohmarr replied.

          “Suit yourself,” Truvor stated and walked down the hall with the girl and the both exited the cell block.

          We all just started at Ohmarr.  He stares could kill, he would be dead right now as he looked like he could feel all the stares and glares at him.

          I finally was able to say something, “You know I don’t get you, Ohmarr.  How can a guy who was the biggest jerk-.”

          Astrid interjected, “Still is one.”

          I continued, “Go from that to Mr. Ego, to sorry about it getting in the way, to actually fooling your friends… let me repeat: ‘friends’… into thinking you were actually in trouble and needed our help?”

          Hiccup then replied, “This was a trap the whole time.  You knew that if you could lead us to believe that your parents were actually in danger and make us believe that Truvor was actually close to releasing some type of mythical dragon to wreak havoc on the archipelago that we would actually help you.”

          Ohmarr looks like he was saddened by that for a moment, “My parents died when I was young; my ‘parents’ that you saw now were just a ruse to get you guys to come here.”  Ohmarr then raised his head from his somber stance and started to question us, “What do you know about ‘The Legend of the Shadow Dragon’?”

          “We won’t tell you anything,” said Tuffnut as he crossed his arms.

          “How about this,” I then countered.  “We ask you a question and you answer it and we’ll answer the question.”

          Tuffnut took back his statement, “Then again, maybe you can.”

          “Jarl?” Hiccup asked.  “What are you doing?”

          I lifted my right hand slightly as to show, “Don’t worry.”

          Ohmarr contemplated the offer for a moment and then agreed.

          “Why do you need Anora?” I asked.

          Annabeth, who right behind me on my right, had her arms folded but stepped forward when I asked that question.  With my eyes and a slight turn of the head I looked back at Annabeth to acknowledge to her that I am trying to help her find out more about what happened to the dragon.  I have a good idea, although I am still not sure.

          “Okay,” Ohmarr began, not really expecting that question of all the questions I could ask.  “Anora is a Shade Dragon.”

          “What?!” declared Hyrith.  “How can that be, they’re just supposed to be Furies like-…”  Hyrith stopped himself because he already said too much.  Hyrith then looked like he felt bad for falling for that.

          Ohmarr moved on, “Actually we already knew that about Shade Furies, so don’t have to fret about that.  I just wondered if you guys knew that.”  Ohmarr then pointed his attention to Annabeth, “Your dragon is only half a Shade Fury… maybe not even half, but some of her is.”

          “How could you know about Anora?” Annabeth retorted.  “You don’t know how I hatched her, Ohmarr!”

          Ohmarr then shook his head, “You didn’t hatch Anora, you got her when she was a baby.  That is why you as well as Anora hate Whispering Deaths.  Let me think.  Oh yeah, wasn’t that Whisper orange?”  Ohmarr smiled after he said that.

          Annabeth gasped, “How… how… could-…”  Annabeth could finish her sentence.

          Ohmarr then chuckled, “You really don’t know anything do you, Annabeth, especially about your ‘own’ family.”

          Annabeth said in disbelief, “What in name of Thor’s hammer are you talking about?”

          Ohmarr kind of rolled his eyes and shifted his weight as he was getting ready to leave, “‘Being oblivious’ to facts does run in your family, Annie.”

          “Don’t you call me ‘Annie’!” Annabeth demanded.  “Only my friends call me that.”

          “Friends?” said Ruffnut.  “I thought you hated that name, Annabeth.”

          Annabeth cleared her throat and glared at Ruff.  Ruffnut realized and only replied, “Oh, sorry.”

          “Oh yeah,” Ohmarr faked like he just remembered something as he turned around.  “You said you were going to tell me what you knew about The Legend if I answered your question.”

          “Did I ever say that?” I said sarcastically shocked.  “Did I ever say that, Hiccup?”

          Hiccup then saw what I did and agreed with me as he and I just stared at Ohmarr, “No… you didn’t say that, Jarl.”

          Ohmarr was furious, “We had a deal!”

          I then remarked while not looking at Ohmarr until I was done, “I guess you can’t trust some people.”

          That must have really gotten to Ohmarr because he looked even more solemn than he did before, but this time it stuck because he realized the point I made.

          “Besides,” I said.  “I said we would answer the question.  I didn’t say ‘how’ we would answer and if we would give you what you wanted at all.”

          Hiccup then smiled as if we got even with him… even though we are still trapped.  Ohmarr slowly walked to the door and exited by closing the door behind him.

          Annabeth then told me, “I don’t know ‘why’ or ‘how’ he knew that about Anora, but nice way of getting back at him.”

          “Yeah that was very smart,” Hiccup replied.  “Though a punch in the face would have sufficed for me.”

          Astrid then said, “Get in line behind me.”

          A few people chuckled, but I did not as I walked back to the back of the cell, sat in the far right corner on the floor, grabbed my knees as my legs were bent in front of me, and just stared at the wall.

          “What’s wrong?” asked Elsa.

          I shook my head, but did not really mean it.  I then started talking sarcastically, but no joke was involved, “Doe, nothing is wrong.  It is just my father is on trial for a crime he did not commit and if we don’t get back to Berk with evidence that says otherwise by the end of tomorrow or today or whenever it is, he might be dead by the time we get back to Berk.  Oh, my mother was attacked and beaten, don’t forget that.  Um, I led all my friends into a trap… twice, nearly getting them killed the second time.  Could have gone back?  Yeah.  But did I go?  No.  Why do vikings have to have stubborn-ish issues?  Now after leading my friends back, they are prisoners with no hope of getting out.  Oh also, we don’t have any clue to where our dragons are.  So no, I’m not alright.  We have no hope, and to top it all off… Asvord is dead!”

          I then realized I just snapped at the only sister I have left.  She kind of stepped back and looked scared.  I could not believe what I just did.  I buried my head in my hands and started to cry.

          “What have I done?” I questioned.  “What have I done?!”

          I could not see what is going on, but I felt someone reach around the back of my head and lay their head on my left shoulder.  Someone was hugging me.  I was about to say, “I wasn’t in the mood for comfort,” but stopped myself when I opened my eyes and saw it is Elsa who came over.  I then grabbed her and hugged her.

          “I love you, Elsa,” as I cried into her shoulder.  “I’m sorry I snapped.  I love you.”

          My sister then said, “I know you didn’t mean it.  I know you are having all these thoughts of guilt, but it will be alright.  One thing Asvord would want us to do is to never lose hope.  There is always hope.  Someway, somehow, we’ll find a way to escape and get out of this joint.”

          I grabbed my sister’s shoulders, extended my arms so I could see her face, “Thank you.”

          Gathering my composer then, wiping my nose and my eyes, then taking a deep breath, “Okay, any ideas on how we are getting out of here.”

          Tuffnut then started jumping up and down waving his hand, “Oh, oh, oh, oh, pick me, pick me, pick me!”

          I rolled my eyes and sighed, “What is it Tuff?”

          “You actually picked me,” Tuffnut said surprised.

          I looked at him for the idiot that he is, “Uh, Tuff, it wasn’t like I was taking a ballet and someone else had an instant idea.”

          “I don’t know if you’d call anything he thinks of instant,” Snotlout poked.  “More of just reacting with being annoying, not thinking.”

          “My good man!” Tuffnut raised his finger in Snotlout’s face.  “I might have you know it takes deep thinking to come up with some of my ideas.”

          Astrid then made mention, “Yeah, where you dig for ideas, you go so deep you forget where you are.”

          Snotlout added, while leaning on her right shoulder, “He probably wouldn’t even use a shovel.  Am I right, Astrid?”

          Astrid just sighed in disgust and had to walk away flinging his arm of her shoulder.

          “Okay guys, enough,” Hiccup said.  “Let’s hear what he has to say.”

          Fishlegs then voiced, “Seriously?”

          Snotlout then responded, “Are we actually going to listen to what he has to say?”

          “What you got a better idea?” Hiccup asked.

          Snotlout froze like he usually does and then said, “No, but if I had one I would say it.”

          Hiccup motioned for Tuff to tell us his idea, “We can get out of here with… this.”

          “With… a… cup…” I said.

          Tuff answered, “Yes,” as he started to scope at the floor.

          “Tunnel through solid rock…”  Astrid clued Tuff in.

          “Oh,” Tuff realized.  “We could burn our cell.”

          Ruffnut then said, “If you haven’t noticed, idiot, there isn’t much wood in this cell and we would use up our oxygen first before we would get out of here.”

          We all seemed to start the pointless argument about Tuff’s ideas when we heard the door creek open again.  Through the cell bars of ours and the two besides ours we could see that the girl came back in with Ohmarr.  The argument stopped as we went over to the cell door.

          “Come back for more information?” I scorned.  “Well you ain’t going to get any out of me.”

          Ohmarr then replied, “Oh it isn’t me who wants the info.  Its Truvor.  He wants to get the info from you.”

          The girl started to open the door as we all walked to the door.

          Ohmarr then insisted, “Only, Jarl!  Now come on,” Ohmarr waved at me.

          I looked at him and then at the girl after she locked the door back.  The girl just looked at me.  Her mouth did not even move, not even a twinge.

          The girl grabbed by my right shoulder and with her left hand held the flat side of a dagger to my back.  The knife did not touch me, but she surely pushed with her fist.  Ohmarr led us out of the hallway and into another hallway.  We continued down an even longer hallway and exited that.  We entered a massive cavern that had noises of pick axes hitting rock.  I saw some of Truvor’s men picking at the ground and walls of the cavern.  We continued to walk down the left side of the cavern.

          “Is this the cavern under the seal?” I spoke up for Ohmarr to be able to hear me.

          “So the guy can solve a mystery,” Ohmarr stated, but more as a poke than a compliment.

          The girl gave me a little shove as she slowed me down while Ohmarr took a left.

          “Hey, take it easy,” I said to the girl.

          Ohmarr nodded at the girl as he went on ahead, and me and the girl stayed behind.

          The girl turned me around and pointed me away from the cavern.  The girl leaned up against the cavern wall while she talked in an accent I could not but my finger on, “So you’re the one they keep talking about.”

          “I guess,” I replied.

          “The in-famous Jarl Mollerson,” she stated.

          “I’ve got a reputation?” I asked, startled.

          “Yeah, you should meet my brother some day,” she continued.  “He can be crazy sometime, but I think you’d like him.”

          I chuckled, but I do not know why, “Why would I like him?  Sounds like someone I know.  What craziness has he done before?”

          “Oh I’m sure you’ve met him before,” she assured.  “And he led his soldiers into a battle with the odds stacked against them, only to do the right thing.  But then he got him and his soldiers captured.”

          “Sounds like I can relate to him too,” I said.  “What happened, did he get out?”

          “I don’t know that part of the story,” she said.  “But I do know something he would always say to me when you are down for the count, ‘Don’t ever give up hope.  As long as you don’t give that up, there is always a chance.’.”

          “Sound like a smart guy,” I said, but felt this conversation was a little awkward.

          “He is, after all,” she paused then looked me square in the eye.  “He is my brother after all.”

          That voice…  I know that voice… Is it?  No, it cannot be… Can it?  I saw her… myself… Can it be true?
          The girl rolled her eyes and smiled, “How dumb do you think my brother is?”

           “Apparently he is pretty stupid if you ask me,” my eyes widened in amazement and my mouth dropped open.  “Asv-.”

          “Shhh!” the girl replied putting her right finger to my lips, now whispering.  “You wanna blow my cover?”

          “It is you!” I grinned.  “Oh Asv-.”

          “Pipe down,” Asvord replied.

          “But I saw you-,” I said but Asvord interrupted me again.

          “I think my brother is very stupid… because he’s going to get us all caught!” she could not help but smile at that.  Now I know why she turned me around, so that anyone looking would not see my reaction.  “Especially when he can’t even recognize his own sister when they’re standing two feet apart!”

          “Sorry,” I chuckled.  “The mask is just too good… How did you-?”

          “No time to explain, stupid,” She whispered, now looking to see if someone is coming.  “After we come from Truvor’s, grabbed my dagger I’ll make sure you escape.”  She looked one more time down the hall and saw Ohmarr coming back.  “I’ll have to tell you the rest when we come from Truvor’s, Ohmarr’s coming.  Wipe that smile off your face, or he’ll know something else is up.”

          “I’m sorry, I’m just glad to see you,” I said, failing at not trying to smile.

          “He’s nearly here, Jarl, I’m sorry,” she stated.  Then with her phony Berserkian accent said, “I hate you,” and then… punch me in the jaw.

          Asvord actually put some effort in that, “Well thanks,” I said staggering back while rubbing my jaw.

          I then thought to myself, “That’s one way to get the smile off my face.  Just punch your brother why don’t-chya.”

          “Aw I think you’ve been acquainted with her fist,” Ohmarr said when he came back.  “Nice.  Heather did say that Moon here has a mean right hook.  Guess Heather wasn’t kidding.”  Ohmarr chuckled, but then got serious.  “Truvor’s ready to see you, let’s go.”

          As we walked down the hallway, Asvord still grabbing my shoulder with her fist digging in my back, I pondered in my thoughts, “I find out my sister is alive and now Heather is involved with this too?  What next?  Is Ohmarr and Annabeth related?”

Thunderdrum: Sonarus (Aka: Sonus) - Male - 

Bio:

  My second dragon, Sonarus was sorta of a pain. Since from when he was born, he was very wild and crazy, and even more hyper. He loved to jump on people's shoulders and roar in their ears, then run away for me to apolagize.

Whispering Death: Thunder Quake (Aka: Da King, Da Racing Champ) - Male -

Bio:

  I found his egg in the tunnels, and Hiccup let me keep him. When he hatched, he looked at me for one second, and then, well, decided he wanted to be free. He jumped out of the stables, and started slithering to the forest. I chased him, freeing him from bushes, rescuing him from drowning, and TRYING to feed him when he was hungry. One day, a wild smokebreath appeared, and for some reason, Da King thought he was, "The King", and decided to take him on. He started dealing blows to it, but the smokebreath won in the end. Before it laid the final blow, though. I jumped and used myself as a human sheild. It hurt, but I was fine. I called in Sonarus, and he saved us. He put his trust in me, and I have helped him ever since.

Bio:

  One day, I went to Johan's ship. There, I found an egg with a burn and ice on it. This was Frost and Pyra's lost egg! I quickly traded it with Johan, and then I found out that she was sick.

I patted Waterspout on the side, and we dove in. To my suprise, it was Sonarus and another Thunderdrum! Studying them for a bit, I found out that the blue one was Sonarus's mate!

Zippleback: Sunrise and Sunset (Aka: Dawn and Dusk, Pimp and Pump)

- Male -

Bio:

  Kinda weird... Ok, so, I went to trader Johan's eggs, and found a dragon egg chest. I asked him could I buy it, since I had just enough gems. So, he said yes, and I got a rumblehorn! Yay! One of my most favorite dragons! Excitedly, I took it home, and put it in the hearth. Later on, I checked on it, and hatched it... then, to my surprise, a baby zippleback popped out! What?! I looked at it, it looked at me, and it was silent for a few minutes. Ok... weirdness attack. Whatever, he's still a baby dragon. I held it, and it's left head turned toward the sunrise in the distance. So I called the left one Sunrise. We played for a bit, then the sun was setting! This time, the right head turned toward it, and I named it Sunset.

Nadder: The Silver Nadder (Aka: Moonstone, Silverstar, Diana) - Female -

Bio:

  So that's why Sun Rose leaves one a year, she's going to visit her sister, Mooonstone. How did I know this? I saw it myself. When she left, me and Thunderquake went to she where she went every year (Yeah, kinda like a stalker, but who knows if she goes mental and starts killing everything? Actually, TMI), she flew into a cave. I waited until night, and suddenly, a silver nadder appeared, and flew out. It came back at dawn, and after it went in, Sun Rose went out. They did this, then I couldn't take it anymore. I need to find out who this dragon is. I crept in, and the Silver Nadder shreiked, then flashed it's wings at my face. Startled, I stepped back. It snarled, and backed away. I decided another plan. When I saw Sun Rose, I signaled her to come to me. She first, well, was startled, then frightned. After face-palming myself, I tossed a fish on teh ground. She ate it, and after gaining her trust, I stepped in the cave with Sun Rose, and soon enough, I found out that this new dragon was Sun Rose's sister, and I took her home.

Typhoomerang: Topspin (Aka: Big guy, Wirlwind, FOOOM) - Male -

Bio:

  This one is a sad one... So there was this typhoomerang that I knew very well. We met in a forest, and even though we were friends, I didn't tame him. Dunno why I didn't, he was awesome. So, a few months late, he found a mate and they had a baby typhoomerang. Then suddenly, his mate died. I felt very sorry for him, and because he had to feed the baby, he left the baby typhoomerang with me. We formed a bond, but in the Chilling Horror month, he went to get some fish... and never came back. I waited for days, and I fed the baby myself with some perch. My friend never came back, so I chose to adopt the baby myself. At night, he would have terrible nightmares, and he would go to my room and sleep with me. He had a serios fear of Backbiter, and I was sorta heartbroken that even though Backbiter wanted to play with Topspin and wanted to stick with him, Topspin always was scared of him and either attacked or flew away. But I know, that one day, the nightmares will pass, and the two dragons will grow to respect each other. My typhoomerang... my Topspin.

Personality:

Always cautious, Defensive, Always on the lookout, Active

Sandwraith: Sandstorm (Aka: Puppy Dragon, He-who-burrows) - Male -

Bio:

  It's funny how a fishing trip can befriend a dragon. So I was spending some time on my own (Raising a ton of dragons is tough, I need a break), and I was fishing and camping out on the beach. I just caught a bunch of halbut and salmon, and I was frying a salmon. *Growl* Huh? I looked up, then left and right. I then felt the ground move, and I looked down. Two eyes stared back up... "YAH! WHAT ON EARTH?!" I jumped back. At that time, I never knew what a sandwraith was. I'm new here, ok? The sandwraith exploded form the sand, and looked at me. Silence for a few seconds... then he wadled to my basket of fish and started eating everything like he didn't care. "Hey! That's my fish!" He didn't listen, and ate all of it. He then turned, and studied me. He looked like a nightfury, so I was intrigued. He then jumped and flopped on me and started licking my face. "You're like toothless!" I laughed, and he licked some more. "Hey, boy! Stop it!" He kept on licking me, and he soon decided that follow me was a better option than chilling in the sand waiting for who-knows-what to go over him. Smart kid.

Personality:

Playful, Smart, Seems to always be hungry

Favorite Food:

Salmon (DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO FISH FOR ONE?! *shouts at Sandstorm, he licks me and wadles away.)

Favorite thing to do:

Act majestic

Intresting fact:

First dragon I knew nothing about in the beginning.

Seashocker: Aquashock and Waterskiz (Aka: Zapduo) - Male - 

Bio:

  So, a few days ago, I received a present. Not sure who sent it, or why, but I got it. It was wraped in colored leather, and when I opened it, I found an egg. I couldn't tell the species though. It was colored in multicolors, with "Thanks Hyrith" written in bright yellow paint. I shrugged. The only way to find out the species is to hatch it. When I picked it up, I was shocked. No, not the suprised shock. The lightning shock. I fumbled with it, and Telsabeam jumped from the roof. I think she sensed it was a skirll, so I shuddered. I don't have anything against skrills, just after Telsabeam almost burned down my house becasue she saw a fly, I've been a bit careful with her. I do not need another crazy lightning-maniac shooting around my house. I ploped it down on the hearth, and after a few minutes, it shook. I picked it up, and took it to the lavepit for it to hatch. It never did. It just shook, but it never came out. Just before Telsabeam was about to crack it open, Waterspout stared at the egg, and shot a small stream of water. The water touched it, then it cracked. Puzzled, I dipped my hand in water, and touched the egg. Where I touched, it cracked. Then, I actually figured out something. I took the egg to the sea, and placed it under the water. It shuddered, then a seashocker was born. I was extremly happy, and I thought all my dragon were too. Well, except Telsabeam. She grumbled a sign of disappointment, and wadled away. XD

Personality:

Aquashock is agressive and fierce. Extremly loyal, and will attack anything that he thinks is harming me.

Waterskiz is playful and wild. He loves doing tricks, and is usually the reason why they have so much scars. For some reason, he's addicted to shrimp.

They both work together as a team, probabily because they know that if they argue, they won't go anywhere.

Favorite Food:

Aquashock: Squid

Waterskiz: Shrimp :\

Favorite thing to do:

Bounce on the waves, SO FUN WHEN RIDING THEM!!!

5 months after Hyrith disappeared...

  "Who's there?" Jin sat up on his bed. It was 12 in the night, and most of the academy was asleep. The footsteps sounded louder this time. Jin pushed away the covers, and put on his combat glove. As soon as his hand slipped in, a small flame sparked in his palm. The footsteps stopped, and a creaking sound was heard. Silence. He waited for a while, and figuring that there was nothing, slipped off his glove and pulled the covers over his head.

  "AHHHHHHH!" A scream peirced the cold air, and Jin fell out of his bed. In a hurry, he shoved the glove over his hand, and opened the door. He lit his glove, and the flame ignited in his hand. Across the balcony, a hooded dark figure stepped out of a room. Jin stood in a battle stance. The flame in his palm grew into a fireball, and Jin shouted to the figure.

  "Who are you? Take off the hood!"

  The hooded man turned to Jin, and removed his hood, revealing an old man with a long white, whispy beard. The fireball died down. "Master Zhang?"

  "Yes, my young student. Why are you here? You should be in your room sleeping, not outside watching the snow fall."

  "I woke up because of the scream. Did you hear it too? Did someone get hurt?"

  "That was the reason I came, young one. Go to bed, the final practices starts tomorrow. Do you want to get the blade or not?"

  "Yes master, but safety is more important. Mind if I investigate with you?"

  JIn bowed, and the old master smiled. "Jin, investigate this floor. I'll take the top and bottom floors. Meet after 5 minutes." Jin looked at his old master. He was not usually that kind, but Jin shook that thought out of his mind. He needed to see if someone was hurt.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  "Found anything yet?" Master Zhang glared at Jin, and he looked into the final room. Another sleeping student. "Nothing, master." Master Zhang looked at him, and smiled. "Well, I think it's settled. Let's have a seat, shall we?" Jin shrugged. The master jumped, and sat on the railing. Jin climed up to him.

 "Anything, Master?"

 "Nothing yet, child. Forget this. It's a good night to be alive, is it?"

 "Yes, I agree. You checked every room?"

 "Every room, youngling. How about you-" A howl penetrated the air. A Howler flew towards Master Zhang, and the yellow and black dragon growled. Wait. Jin looked at the Howler, and noticed something. That was Dai Pow, Icarus's dragon. He never submitted to anyone, not even the master, except Icarus. Dai Pow circled Master Zhang. He glared at him, and then glared at Zhang.  He kneeled, and Zhang grumbled under his breath. "Curses. Stupid howler." He then looekd at Jin. "Let me see Dai Pow first." He jumped off the railing, and Jin looked as he kneeled and clasped the wingless dragon's head, speaking some words. JIn nudged myself over, then he felt something. JIn looked down, and he saw blood on the railing, where the master's hand was. Sticky, freash blood. 

   The last room...

  Jin shoved past the master, and to the final room. He didn't check it, since it was the room the master came out of. Jin ran past, and saw a stream of blood running from under the door. He slammed it open, and he gasped in shock. 

 Mei Hua layed dead in her bed, a large bloody gash in the middle of her chest. Her mouth was open in shock. Jin ran to her, and noticed that the blood was freash. Impossible! The master just was in here! Master Zhang would never commit such a crime! A hand then went over Jin's shoulder, sending a chill up his spine. The master glared at him, his mouth curing into a evil grin. Shocked, Jin tried to speak. "What? How? WHY?!" The master smiled. "Yes, Jin. I am the one. Sorry, but I can't have any witnesses." Suddenly, Master Zhang's form flickered, and instead of the Master from before, a red haired boy, stood in his place. He suddenly jabbed his palm at Jin's chest. A blade then shot out, coming out of Jin's back. Jin gasped, and he fell to the ground. His vision slowly filled with black dots, and he thought his last thought.
