Rick ran down Warfangs wall path until we got about twenty feet from Spyro and the others. They had regrouped with Fugeo who was now sitting and they all stared at the shine heading towards them. He took a deep breath and began to walk towards them. When he was about ten feet away they all turned towards him and jumped abit. Spyro stepped out in front of Cynder and Fugeo, Stay away from us. He growled. Rick stopped and looked at them then lowered his head. Im sorry, Rick said, Please it wasnt my fault I didnt mean for that to happen. Spyro looked at him then back at the other two not quite sure of weather he was just faking or telling the truth. How do we know I can trust you? Spyro asked, And why are you standing like that? Rick raised a hand and flexed his claw tipped fingers and thumb, I dont know
he said, I just woke up like this. They were all silent until finally Cynder said, Hes telling the truth. Spyro looked at her slightly confused and asked, How do you know? Well. she answered, Remember what happened to me
when I finally woke after you freed me
I thanked you and apologized for everything I did
it seems like Ricks trying to do the same. Spyro took a deep breath and looked at Rick then stepped back, Fine. Spyro whispered to Cynder, but Im going to keep an eye on him. Cynder gently licked his cheek and said quietly, I figured you would. Rick relaxed slightly and walked over. When he was close enough he crouched down since he was how taller than them and said in the most sincere voice he could, Im sorry
I really am. Fugeo limped forward and said, Can we talk about this later
if that who I think it is then shell be here soon. Cynder looked back at him and nodded then they all turned toward the shine which was almost visible. Rick sat down next to them and crossed his legs.
About 3 minutes later the shine could be recognized as a dragoness, she had scales that shined like crystal, an underside of shining pale yellow, icy blue wing membranes as well as a crystal at the end of her tail, her horns were pearly white, and her hair which grew all along her back was a light blue just like her eyes. The dragoness gracefully landed which a gently pat as her paws touched ground. Hello everyone. She said in a very gentle and kind voice. Fugeo limped forward and stared at her, Dia
youre alive? he asked sounding as if barely able to talk. Diamond nodded and smiled at him. Spyro and Cynder stepped forward and stared at her but Rick looked back and watched. How? Spyro asked, We all thought that those monsters killed you. Well actually. She answered, The trolls that attacked us captured me, they put me in a cage and tried to get me to tell them everything about dragons, they wanted to attack Warfang. But we dont have to worry about them anymore; I took care of them awhile ago, but I got lost and couldnt find my way back, although I saw a dust cloud a few days back and followed it hoping that it would lead me here and luckily it did, I knew it was Malefors troops so I know they were going somewhere. Do you have any idea whats going on? I thought Malefor was gone, didnt Cynder and you defeat him? she asked looking at Spyro. She looked over at Fugeo and smiled, My, my. She said in a flirty tone, she circled around him and examined his body, you might be abit roughed up but I have to say youve grown Fugeo. Fugeo blushed abit but thanks to his red scales no one saw. Uh thanks. He said. Diamond looked over at Rick and noticed that he stood differently from the others. Everyone turned around and looked at him. Before she could ask Cynder answered, Diamond, this is Rick, Rick this is Diamond. She smiled at him in a friendly manner and said, Its nice to meet you Rick, but if you dont mind my asking
why and how are you standing like that? Rick though for a second then said, Well I
Im from another world I use to be a human. Diamond looked at him alittle confused and asked, Whats a human? Its confusing. Rick answered, Ill explain everything later. Diamond nodded and looked back at Spyro, Cynder, and Fugeo and asked in a funny way, So are going to take me to see my father and the other guardians or are you just going to stare at me all day? They all snapped of a trance they seemed to be in and nodded.
Alittle while later everyone was once again at the temple yet the guardians hadnt returned yet, they were probably looking for any casualties. Its been so long since Ive been here. Diamond said, Ive almost forgot what it looks like, its so nice to be back. She looked back and Fugeo who seemed to be staring at her strangely. Her smile at him and then looked away to hide she now blushing face. Do you mind if I look around, I want to see if can still find my way around. she asked. Everyone nodded except for Rick who seemed distant from everyone else, he seemed very unhappy about something but Diamond couldnt tell what it was. She quickly said goodbye to everyone and then walked away to explore the temple. Spyro and Cynder walked somewhere else, probably to find something. Fugeo who was now feeling much better looked back at Rick. Rick didnt seem to notice because he turned around and walked away. Despite being attacked Fugeo couldnt help but feel sorry for Rick, he seemed really upset. Silently as his soar body would allow he followed Rick and soon found him on the balcony leaning on the railing. He walked up to him and asked, Everything alright? Rick looked over at him out of the corner of his eye and said, No
I have no family, Spyro and Cynder dont trust me anymore, I attack YOU, and now Sophies probably dead. It cant be that bad. Fugeo answered, Personally I dont blame you for what happened, you were mad dude none of us knew what would happen if you got angry. You dont understand
Rick said, When I was fighting my dark side, Armageddon, he said that my only purpose for existing why so that he could use me to destroy this realm. Armageddon? Fugeo asked, Is that your evil sides name? Rick nodded. Well. Fugeo said, You beat him once you could do it again. Thats just it though. Rick said, What if he gets out again, what if he kills all of you and then I cant take back control, I just dont know what to do. Fugeo thought to himself for a second and then said, Well I dont know how that can be prevented but maybe Sophie can help you, if shes still alive that is. How do you think that? Rick asked, You heard that faker, shes already fulfilled her purpose. We could at least try and rescue her, she might still be alive. Fugeo answered. Well then were would she be? Rick asked. At mount Malefor of course. Ive only been there once but I remember where it is I can lead you there. Fugeo said. Rick looked at him and said, You cant tell the others. What do you mean? Were both going. Fugeo said abit confused. No. Rick said, Youre too injured; besides if just one of us go it will be easier to sneak around. I guise thats true but still well stand a better chance if two go. Rick answered, Im going alone Fugeo, I need to earn everyones trust again and saving Sophie might be the only way. Ok fine. Fugeo said then for the next few minutes he explained how to get to mount Malefor.
Diamond explored the temple for nearly an hour until she found her way to the training room. She went into the center of the room and looked around. I wonder if I still remember how this works. She thought. Diamond concentrated for a second as a dummy appeared in front of her. cool. She said then attacked the dummy. Suddenly she heard someone behind her; she turned around and saw a familiar old dragon, Cyril. His eyes grew wide upon seeing her and he struggled to say, Diamond
She looked at her father felling bother joy and nervousness.
