"Her soul was too deep to explore by those who always swam in the shallow end."

~Quote from A. J. Lawless






Life is gray & dull, & all i see is dark,

stay by my side & i'll be there no matter what,

though the snow falls faster, & the wind blows louder still,

i'll be there by you're side, to blow away the chill.

Pearl looked inside & gasped.  There, as if inviting itself to be read, was the map.  

Pearl took the yellowed paper in her hand & shakily unrolled it.  She scanned it, beads of sweat forming on her forehead.  This was it.  The key to finding the Winter Rider.

"This dragon has notoriously poor eyesight and uses thermal censors to locate its prey.

It camouflages itself in the snow because if it can't see you, it doesn't want you to see it!"

Donut reply! XD

Pearl blinked open her sleep heavy eyes.  Golden sunlight flitted through the ice & dabbled her cheeks, warming her cold skin.  It was morning.  Pearl rubbed her eyes & sat up, yawning while looking around their little abode.  Sprawled out over the moss sodden floor not five feet away was Carl, snoring softly away.  A night’s rest had done him good, for the color had returned to his ruddy cheeks, & he looked almost as good as new.  Propped up against the mossy wall were Robin & Ida, & at the entrance to their little dorm slept their “guard”, Henry.  Pearl smiled to herself.  How peaceful it was compared to normal.  What a lovely way to start the day.  She stumbled to her feet & stretched.  “Good morning Snowdust.”  She greeted her playful Snow Wraith, just as she always did.  “I hope you had a good re-“  She stopped mid sentence when she looked behind her.  All that greeted her back was a patch of bare mossy ground.  Snowdust, was gone.  Pearl’s eyes widened in panic.  She clutched her head in her hands, terror clogging her senses.  Her dragon was gone!  Snowdust rarely ever left her side, not even when she told her to stay.  So why had she gone now?  Did she go on her own, or was she taken?  Was she alright?  What had happened to her?  “Snowdust?”  Pearl called franticly.  “Snowdust!”  Her, friends, startled by her frantic yelling, jerked awake.  “Pearl,”  Carl grumbled, climbing to his feet.  “Stop yelling.  Some of us actually want to get some sleep.”  Pearl toyed nervously with her golden locket, just as she always did when she was nervous, stressed, or upset.  “Carl, this is more important then sleep! Snowdust is missing!  We have to find her!”  She stopped talking when she realized something else important.  

“Carl, all the dragons are gone!  They’ve all vanished!”  Carl blinked in surprise, whirled around, then stared, open mouthed at the bare space behind him.  “What!”  Robin exclaimed, as she whirled around to see the drafty spot her dragon had been the night before.  “You’re right, they’re all gone!”  Henry, still quite groggy from being woken up, was just as calm as always.  “Now now everyone, calm down.  I’m sure they just….went out for some fresh air or something.  They’ll come back, they always do.”  Ida snorted in disbelief.  “Or maybe that Shielle took them.  I knew we shouldn’t have trusted her.”  Pearl didn’t know what to think.  She kept tugging at the golden heart around her neck, worrying about her poor, sweet dragon…… No!  She had to get a grip!  There was no use worrying.  Worrying never helped anything.  She had to think logically about this.  Okay……. Snowdust was missing.  Actually, all the dragons were missing.  The most logical thing she could think of was to go look for them.  Yeah, that made sense.  Pearl whistled to get everyone’s attention.  “Hey guys, instead of panicking, why don’t we go looking for them?  Like Henry said, I’m sure there all fine.  Lets just keep it cool, I’m sure we’ll find them.“  Just then she noticed a loud crunching sound, gradually growing louder & advancing towards their quarters.  “That must be them!”  Robin exclaimed happily.  “Oh I don’t know what I would have done if Cackatoo had gotten lost without me!”  Henry smiled.  “See?  I knew they were all fine.  They probably just went out to get an early breakfast.”  But as the scraping & crunching grew louder & turned the corner, they found it was not their dragons at all.  Instead, there stood a band of wild dragons, with the same Woolly Howl, Mammoth, who had kidnapped Pearl the day before, leading them.
Pearl groaned when she saw him.  “Oh no.  Not you again.”  Her friends slowly began to back away from the entrance.  Ida looked from the dragons to Pearl, nervous, but with nothing to defend himself, for all their weapons were tucked safely away in their dragons saddles the night before.  “Uh, Pearl?  You got one of those brilliant plans of yours?  Cause I think we could use one right about now.”  “Ida, I can’t come up with a plan that fast!”  Robin groaned.  “Oh no, what are we going to do?”  The dragons didn’t at all seemed fazed by the way the humans were acting.  One of them, an impressive gray & magenta Windstriker, strutted surely forward, only to bang it’s head on a protruding ice spire.  The Windstriker shook its head, briefly dazed, then recovered & began to approach the humans once more.  The Windstriker didn’t even seem to notice her other friends backed up against the cave wall.  Instead, it went straight for Pearl.  “Pearl, get out of the way!”  Carl yelled & ran to help her, but it was too late.  When she turned to run, she stood face to face with the Windstriker. The Windstriker lowered its snake-like neck to level with her face.  It stared emotionlessly at her, with petrifying, pale gray eyes.  Pearl gulped.  What now?  The Windstriker continued to stare.  Then it sneezed, swung around, & instead grabbed Carl by his belt.    “Hey!”  He screamed, thrashing about like a fish as he was lifted into the air.  “Put me down!”  But the Windstriker payed no mind to his protests.  In fact, she even looked a bit amused.  Ida burst out laughing, for Carl looked quite ridiculous dangling helplessly from the jaws of the beast.  “You need some help there Carl?”  She hollered, but her laughter was soon cut short, for another dragon walked over & plucked her up from the group like a twig.  “Hey!”  She protested, but the dragon holding her in it’s mouth, a Deadly Nadder to be precise, just squawked playfully.  The other dragons fanned out.  
Henry & Robin tried to scramble away, but it didn’t work out well, for soon they were also hanging from the jaws of the wild dragons.  Pearl knew she was next.  She tried to hide in one of alcoves, but Mammoth thundered forward & grabbed her by her belt, dragging her just out of reach of safety.  Pearl grumbled and crossed her arms.  She saw no point in fighting, since her friends had already tried, & failed.  She was used to being manhandled by now anyway.  With a swing of his broad head, Mammoth turned & led the troop out of the group’s sleeping quarters, the humans dangling helplessly from their jaws.  Mammoth led the group along winding gravel pathways, over gully’s, & through icy passageways.  Pearl tried to calm her friends down, but it was a bit hard when dangling from the jaws of her furry capture.  “Everyone s-stop struggling!  I’m s-sure Shielle will tell us w-whats going on o-once we find her.”  Ida crossed her arms & scowled, looking particularly hilarious dangling by her belt from the Deadly Nadder’s mouth.  “I bet that girl set her dragons out on us on purpose.  She want’s to take our dragons, then get us out of the way.  I never did trust her, or her Windgnasher.”  Robin wriggled in the grasp of her wild dragon.  “Are you saying we’ll never see our dragons again!?!”  “No!  we’ll see them again!  Everyone just keep it together, or-OFH!”  Mammoth, the dragon who was carrying her, emerged into a large lofty area & suddenly dropped her, flat on her face!  The other dragons came in behind him, & dropped all her friends on top.  “Ofh!  Ouch, get off me Carl, you weigh a ton!”  “Ow!  Thats my face!”  “Move over Henry, your sitting on my leg!”  “Ouch Robin, that was my stomach!”  “Good morning!”  A cheery voice interrupted their momentary calamity.  They all stopped for a moment to see Shielle sitting comfortably at the end of what looked like a lopsided table, her green Windgnasher sitting on one side, & Mammoth on the other.
“Hello friends.”  She chirped, still blind to their irritation.  “Did you sleep well?”  Pearl scrambled out from under her friends, rubbing her sore back.  “As well as you can be sleeping against a dragon covered in spines & then getting dogpiled by your friends.”  Shielle smiled.  “Good good.  And can I assume that my dragon friends brought you here peacefully?”  Carl snorted, still busy trying to untangled himself from Robin & Henry.  “Thats a bit of an exaggeration.”  “Enough small talk!”  Ida interjected, jumping to her feet.  “What did you do with our dragons?”  Shielle looked taken aback.  “Whatever do you mean?  I did nothing to them.  Why, if you look out there in the center of the sanctuary you’ll see that their perfectly fine.”  Pearl turned, then walked slowly forward, her eyes widening with astonishment.  The scene in front of her was a huge cavern, enormous actually, made entirely out of ice, with one huge spiral of ice branching upward.   All around the spire, dragons of every possible color, shape, & size flew, roaring & chattering together in their strange language.  Near the bottom lapped an expanse of deep blue water, where Pearl could see the occasional ripple of a tidal class dragon swimming by.  Moss covered almost all the ice, making grassy looking overhangs & comfortable perches that an occasional dragon sat on.  Near the top of the icy dome, was a strange lopsided formation that glowed with a golden light.  Tiny glowing fireworms flitted back & forth across the glowing object, looking like nothing more then flickering specks of light to the little group of adventurous vikings.  Leafy foliage & beautiful wildflowers grew in every nook & cranny, adding extra color to the entire screen, making the entire cavern look like something from a fantasy.
“Wow.”  Pearl breathed.  “I didn’t know somewhere so beautiful existed anywhere in the whole archipelago.”  And from the dumbfounded faces beside her, she could guess her friends were thinking the same thing.  Pearl leaned over the ice wall, looking down at the ground below.  On a ledge farther down, not much farther away from where they were now, rested a collection of heat geysers.  They spat out water every now & then, which flowed into heated pools a few dragons played in.  Her attention was drawn from them when she heard a familiar baying sound.  A white dragon, flanked by a thinner Mahogany one, & another exotic blue, dashed through the exploding geysers, all three yipping & roaring happily at the spray of warm water.  “Snowdust?”  The white dragon skidded to a halt.  It whipped around, then looked up, cocking its head in a confused, curious way.  “Snowdust!”  Pearl called.  “Its me!”  Snowdust blinked, & the realization hit her.  She bayed happily, excited to see her beloved rider.  She half ran, half slid across the mossy ice, flew up, & without stopping, barreled right through the opening & tackled her mommy with lots of slobbery kisses.  Pearl shrieked & pushed her back.  “No Snowdust, bad dragon!”  Shielle giggled.  “See?  I’d never hurt a dragon.  They’re all in the main sanctuary somewhere.  They woke up earlier this morning & I led then to a place where they would not disturb you all.  I knew you had a hard travel trying to find me, so I wanted to make sure you got as much rest as possible.”  Ida crossed her arms, her brow furrowed in a skeptical unbelieving way.  “Hmph, I bet.”  “Listen, I know you must all be wanting an explanation for my actions.  You all must be very hungry as well.  Why don’t you all gather your dragons & meet me back here for breakfast?  I’ll answer any questions you have then.”
A few minutes later the riders, along with their dragons, sat down at the makeshift ice table Shielle had prepared for them.  She smiled at them as they re-entered the room.  “Oh good, I’m glad you’re all back.  Did you find them alright?”  Pearl’s tension seemed to melt away in the presence of this cheery girl.  She sat down on a mat of bearskin spread out on the mossy floor, where she assumed she was supposed to sit, while Snowdust laid down with a ‘thump!’ by her side.  “Yes we did.  Though they seemed to be a bit more…… playful then usual.”  Shielle waved a gloved hand in the air.  “Don’t worry.  Dragon nip grows abundantly here in the sanctuary.  Some dragons can have trouble adjusting to the high concentration of it.”  Carl, who was sitting on Pearl’s left side, pushed Zander away to keep the playful Sweet Wraith from covering him with slobbery kisses.  “Well that explains a lot.”  “Well, enough of that.  Since we’re all here, why don’t you all tell me what your names are?  It’s very impolite of me to not know all of you by now.”  One by one, her friends introduced themselves to Shielle.  When they were done, Shielle smiled happily.  “Its wonderful to know you all.  Now that we have introductions out of the way, we can get to more important things.  You all must be very hungry after your travels.  Me & my friends prepared a wonderful meal for the morning!”  She swept her cape up dramatically in a graceful bow, before a few dragons paraded in, bearing baskets of fruit & different kinds of fish hanging from their mouths.  Pearl’s eyes widened at the array of different foods to choose from.  There were apples, strawberries, plums, all kinds of berries, melons, some nuts, & many fruits she hadn’t even heard of before.  Not to mention all the fish.  There were even some other kinds of meat, like boar, chicken, & maybe even pork.  As the dragons placed the food on the table, her friends gazed hungrily at the feast, like wild animals who hadn’t eaten in weeks.  Shielle laughed at their expressions.  “Well, don’t just stare, go ahead!  Its all for you, I promise!”  
The ginger haired girl didn’t need to tell them twice.  They dove at the food, & soon had gobbled up more then they had eaten their entire voyage.  Pearl took an apple from one of the baskets & bit into it.  It tasted so good compared to what they had been eating for so long, maybe even better then the food on Berk!  She whipped off the foamy juice that trickled down her chin.  “Wow Shielle, this is delicious!  Where did you get all of it?”  Shielle shrugged.  “Most of it from the sanctuary.  Some of the meat my dragons caught.  But most of the fruit came from here.  The sanctuary has such strange climates that all sorts of plants can grow here.”  Henry took a halibut by its tail & threw it at Windhurtle, who snapped it up immediately, then licked his lips in delight.  “Thank you so much for the meal.  We haven’t had a decent one since we left Berk.” The girl blushed at Henry’s comment.  “It’s really nothing.  Anything I can do to help.”  Pearl swallowed, then set down her apple.  “Alright Shielle, would you mind if we ask you some questions?”  Shielle leaned back against the flank of her green Windgnasher.  She plucked a orange tinted fruit from one of the baskets, & pulled out a sharpened Razorwhip spine from the many adorning her outfit, which she used to begin slicing up the fruit.  “Not at all.  Go ahead, i’ll answer as many as I can.”  “Oh, alright.  Well, where is my father’s cargo?”  Shielle bit into a piece of the orange fruit, chewing thoughtfully before answering.  “I assume you are talking about the ship with mahogany sails.”  “Yes, thats my father’s ship.”  “Then my assumptions were correct.  You needn’t worry.  I took the liberty of separating all of your cargo from the rest of the supplies.  I can show you where it is later.”  Carl took a chicken leg from one of the baskets & took a huge bite out of it.  “Great.  Okay, my turn.  Why have you been attacking Berk’s trading ships?  Not to mention all those dragon hunters & us!”
Shielle looked a little sheepish.  “Well, I cannot say I am proud of all my actions.  I apologize for disturbing your trading ships.  It is hard to feed this many dragons, & sometimes we have to raid trading ships to gather food for the dragons that can’t feed themselves.  I promise to leave your traders in peace from now on.  As for the dragon hunters, I attacked them to release the helpless dragons they had imprisoned.  I didn’t mean to hurt any of you however.  I apologize for that.  If I had known you were all seeking me out for answers only, things might have been a bit more peaceful between us.  However, one tends to get a bit…… well, nervous when unknown forces start to chase you about.”  She sliced off another piece of the orange fruit & popped it into her mouth.  Henry nodded.  “That’s understandable.  Now I have a question.  What is it exactly you do up here thats so important?”  Shielle gestured to the dragons around her.  “Why, I rescue dragons of course.  I rehabilitate some of the more violent species, enough for them to get along with other dragons, & I heal the one’s that can’t take care of themselves.”  She gestured to the green Nadder, who pranced over to her seat.  “You see?  Kinkstail here was fattily wounded after a fight with some territorial changewings.  He can no longer fly long distances on his own.”  She pulled out his wing membrane, which showed large gaps & holes in the emerald skin.  Pearl shivered at the sight.  She couldn’t imagine that happening to Snowdust.  Shielle gestured to another dragon, who hobbled forward.  Pearl immediately tensed when she recognized the powerful shoulders & the faint scar on it’s neck.  Shielle stroked the dragon’s neck.  “Snowspirit here was very violent & vicious towards some of the other dragon’s here at the sanctuary, so I worked with her until she grew a little warmer towards the dragons who are weaker then her.”  the Snow Wraith narrowed her eyes & snarled when she noticed Snowdust, who yelped & cowered behind her rider.  Shielle laughed.  “Well, she’s still working on it.”  She whistled, & a tiny little dragon peeked out from her ginger locks.  She took the little dragon up in one palm & held her out for everyone to see.  “Sparrow here is a Prickleboggle, & one of my dearest friends.  I found her caught in an old trappers cage, left behind in some old campsite.”  Sparrow chirped a happy greeting, then flew off her friend’s palm.  
She plucked a flower from the floor, & flew up onto Pearl’s shoulder, offering her the dainty plant as a gift.  “Aww, thank you.”  Pearl took the flower from her & tucked it into her long black braid.  Shielle smiled.  “As you can see the little thing is quite a dear.”  Meanwhile, the Mahogany Windstriker, whom had carried one of her friends earlier, was sniffing curiously at Carl.  It lowered its long snaking neck to his level, sniffing his hair & cocking its head curiously to one side.  Carl tried to push it away, but it just kept getting closer & closer, until it was rubbing it’s head against his.  “Ah!  Go away you crazy dragon!”  Pearl giggled.  “Look’s like you made a new friend Carl.”  Carl rolled his eyes, & grimaced as the Windstriker purred & rubbed her face against his cheek.  Shielle laughed.  “That would be Jubilee.  Jubilee, here!”  Jubilee twisted around at the sound of Shielle’s voice, & trampled over to her rider’s seat.  Shielle grabbed ahold of her nasal horn & slowly brought her head downward.  “Jubilee here was blinded by a tree snare.  She wouldn’t have survived the night if me & Bumbles had not been there to rescue her.”  She stroked the Windstriker’s narrow head, which made Jubilee close her clouded eyes & purr with delight.  Robin gulped down some blueberries before speaking.  “Wait, who is Bumbles?”  Shielle gestured to the green Windgnasher.  “This is Bumbles of course.  He is the alpha of the entire sanctuary.”  Bumbles looked up at the mention of his name, & purred a friendly greeting.  Pearl took another bite of her apple.  “Okay, I have one more question.  Why didn’t you try to talk to Hiccup, or any of the riders?  They could have easily talked to you like we are now.”  Shielle stopped & looked downward.  She toyed nervously with the razorwhip spine.  “To be honest…….. I have never really been fond of people.  Viking’s are very strange to me.  And I to them.  If I tried, who knows what would have happened?  They might tell everyone about my wonderful home.”
She gestured to the beautiful arching walls of ice, & to the cavern just outside.  “I’m a healer, not a fighter.  I know nothing about vikings.  I can’t just go &….. talk to them, especially your chief.  I know what would happen.  They’d tell everyone, & If they do, whats to stop those evil people, who hate my friends, to come here & destroy my home?  And my dragons?  Thats why I’ve been so secretive.  I don’t want anyone to know where my sanctuary is.  Otherwise, they could all die.”  The room was silent for a moment.  Everyone sat still as stone, not knowing what to say.  Pearl fiddled with the chain of her locket before breaking the odd silence.  “Shielle, i’m sorry you feel that way toward Berk, & us.  But trust me, we would never tell anyone such an important secret.  We’ll promise to keep the location of your dragon sanctuary a secret.”  Shielle looked surprised.  “You mean that?”  “Of course.  Right guys?”  Everyone nodded solemnly.  Shielle looked astonished.  “Well, I, thank you.  Thank you so much.”  She abruptly stood up.  “Well, since you have your cargo & now that that is all sorted out, you have my permission to stay here in the sanctuary for as long as you want.  At least until you are ready to leave.”  Pearl glanced at all her friends.  They all seemed enthusiastic about the prospect of staying.  Well, they did come a long way, & it would be nice to rebuild their strength before they left.  Not to mention they needed to replenish their supplies before the long flight home.  She made up her mind.  “I think we’ll stay, at least until we are revived enough for the journey home.”  Shielle smiled.  “Very well.  Welcome to the sanctuary my friends.”

One thing to make clear: I REALLY LOVE DRAGONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


My background story for my main OC

Backstory: Sonora was a very exciting girl. She was just a toddler when she learned of Dragon Fighting. She was five, and didn't understand anything. But she went along with it. Soon, a terrible storm hit, her parents were putting her and her two year old sister into the cellar to stay safe, when a huge wave of flood from the ocean threw down the door and washed away the house, as well as the crate where she, her sister Elira, and all the supplies in their (an axe, food for a week, fresh water, rope, swords, bow and arrow, other Viking stuff, spare change of clothes for everyone in the family, blankets, flint and steel, and a yak hair tent) were washed away to sea. Her parents most likely drowned, and although they couldn't swim, Sonora turned out to be a natural. Soon lulled to sleep by the waves, she curled her sister toward herself and slept. In the morning, as the sun shined into the crate, Sablie saw a remote island not far away. She jumped out of the box, this being a mistake for she didn't expect the ocean water, grabbed the side of the box, and kicked her legs with all her might, holding on for dear life. She paddled in the direction of the island, and got to the shore. Slowly placing the tent far up the shore like her parents taught her, she made quite a cozy home. Starting a fire with flint and steel and driftwood, she took some meat she found in the crate, and cooked it, and mashed up part of it for Elira, who was now crying. Cradling her and feeding her the meat, Elira slowly went to sleep. What she didn't realize is that the crying had attracted a dragon. When she heard a roar, she ran outside with a lightweight sword to defend herself and sister. When she got outside, she saw a rare Sand Wraith. It stood outside, cocking its head at the tent. Sablie dropped her sword as she was shaking terribly. The dragon looked at her, and nuzzled his nose to her. Looking the dragon in full eyes, she didn't see evilness. She just saw warmness. Reaching out her hand, the dragon touched it with his nose. Hugging the dragon and crying, she fell asleep under his wing. She woke up around noon, and found no sign of the dragon. Thinking it was a dream, she gathered the rest of the supplies and took them into the tent when she heard the beating of wings behind her. It wasn't a dream after all! The dragon slowly dropped what he had in his claws, which were fish! Food! Sonora smiled and hugged the dragon. The dragon bent down and extended his wing for her. Un surely, she climbed onto his back, and he took OF on a calm flight around the island. She returned to find her sister crying again, and shushed her gently. After cooking the fish, she mashed more for her sister and gave the dragon his share too. That night the dragon didn't leave the tent, and slept next to it, keeping it warm. After a few days, they moved to a clearing near a spring, with lots of saplings. Using the axe, Sablie cut a big wood pile by the house. Every day at the rise of the moon she went flying with the Sand Wraith, and that is why she named him Moonrise.
When she was seven and her sister was four, she was scouting in the wilderness for any deer she could hunt, when she stumbled against a d.ead Razorwhip and four eggs. She kneeled down and felt each of the eggs, and she couldnt feel a heart beat in the first three. In the fourth one though, she could feel a faint heart beat. She took all four eggs home anyway, and when she came to the tent where Elira was rolling in the sand with Moonrise and cooking lunch, she felt an egg shake. Calling her sister over, she set the egg down in front of her sister, and the egg completely split apart. A baby Razorwhip fell out, and Elira immediately fell in love with her. Naming the baby Razwhipway, the two haven't been seperated since. The rest of the eggs never hatched, though Sablie didn't give it up until a week later, when she broke them in half to use as bowls.     (I included this part of the story because it means a lot to me, and helps understand the ending better)
Sonora was ten and Elira was seven, when a bad storm hit. The next morning, Sonora steeped out of the wooden shack she built to find her beach much destroyed. Calling her sister and Razwhipway (who was now a broad wing) to help clean up when she saw a peculiar sight. A shiny pink body was laying on the beach. It was a Tide Glider. She was a beauty. Calling Moonrise to help her, she pulled the Tide Glider into the yard (which was pretty much beach). When the poor dragon woke up, she looked around, then finally, deciding we weren't a threat, spit at herself. Everyone started in shock at the dragon. She whipped around and looked at us. Her wounds were gone, and we couldn't stop staring (even Moonrise and Razwhipway). Sonora slowly approached her with a sea bass. Not taking her eyes of Sablie, the dragon ate, and accepted a green plant dragons seem to like. After that, she stared at Sablie, and slowly reached out to touch her hand. Sundance was named for the way she danced in the sun, in the mornings. There were now three dragons living with them.
It had been a year since peace was brought to Berk from the dragons, although Sonora didn't know it. She was fourteen years old, and now even Razwhipway could fly. They used hand made saddles from deer skin and boar tusks with wild dyes. Sablie was flying Moonrise around the islands, when she noticed a black dragon that she had never seen before. She of course, knew most of the dragons on her island, and this was one she had never seen. Munching on an apple, she decided to make friends and find out the full look. This dragon was faster than Moonrise, which was a surprise since he was the only Sand Wraith and fastest dragon on the island. She landed where she saw the black dragon land, but was shocked! There was a rider standing next to the dragon saying "This is a new island bud. Do you sense any trouble?" The black dragon snorted, and turned in her direction, where she was concealed behind the trees. The Dragon walked over to the trees now, and pushed Sablie over so she fell in the riders view. He looked as shocked as her. He looked at her and said "Hello, we are friends and don't want to hurt you,". Sablie was scared as she was the time she saw Moonrise for the first time. "Who are you," she managed to say "What do you want from my island," The stranger looked at her and said " My name is Hiccup, and we are not going to take anything from this island. We will help you if you want us to",. Feeling she could trust him, she told him her story, and about Moonrise, who was happily playing with the Black dragon, who looked surprisingly like Moonrise. Afterward she brought him to the shack, where he met Elira, Razwhipway and Sundance, and he told them about Berk. "I think we used to live on Berk, at least that is what mommy said," said Sablie, "But how? I thought Berk fought dragons,". So Hiccup told her about the peace, and Toothless. Finding that they did want to go back to Berk, Hiccup stayed the night, then helped them to Berk, and helping them build a good big Viking hut with stables and get fresher weapons. They had lived peacefully at Berk ever since.
