Chapter 16
That night when everyone was asleep Rick climbed off the bed he had been using for the past few day and walked to the door.  He slowly opened it and looked around then snuck out making sure that his claws didn’t make any noise on the stone floor.  He went out to the balcony and looked around.  He spotted something in the shadows near the door and walked over to it.  Rick picked it up and realized it was a small bag, one that he had asked Fugeo to fill with supplies he might need.  He untied the top and looked inside he saw a few small crystals that glowed gently, one green, one red, and one blue.  Rick didn’t know what they did but would find out later.  He also saw what looked like a dagger that was shaped like Cynder’s tail blade, some flint to start a fire, some gold coins, and a small vial of clear liquid.  “Hmm… must be water.” Rick thought, he picked it up and looked at it but noticed that it was too thick to be water, it was more like syrup.  He placed it back in the back and tied it again.  Rick walked up to the railing and looked down at the city, nothing was stirring and everything was quiet.  “I can’t fly over the city right now.” Rick whispered, “Someone is bound to hear me.”  Rick slung himself over the railing and used his wings like parachutes.  He landed on a roof top and dropped down to his knee to prevent a loud thud.  He stood and started to run along the roof until he reached the end and dropped to the ground and continued towards Warfang’s gate.  As he reached the center of the city he heard something to his right and stopped.  He looked towards it and saw a dark ally, “Hmm… wonder what that is?” Rick thought and walked towards it.  When he got closer Rick heard something that sounded almost like a little kid panting and running away from him.  “Hey!!!” he whispered as loud but quietly and possible, “wait up… you shouldn’t be out here.”  He chased after it and quickly found himself at a dead end.  He looked around but saw nothing; Rick turned around to walk away but was startled by a dragon staring at him with an evil grin.  “Well…” the dragon said, “Look what we got here.  Nice job dude you got him to come right to us.”  Rick looked past him and saw a small group two dragons and four moles all about the same age as him.  “Whoa, hold on man I don’t want any trouble…” Rick said, “Just going for a walk.”  “Well looks like you came the wrong place a… walk.”  The dragon said in an intimidating voice.  He started to walk around Rick and inspected him then noticed the sack of supplies he had.  “What do we have here?”  The dragon said and snatched away the sack and tossed it to one of the moles who quickly opened in and looked inside.  “HEY!!!” Rick said, “Give that back!!!” he started to run towards it but was stopped by the dragon that jumped in his way.  “No… I don’t think so…” he said, “You want it back then you’re going to have to fight all of us.” The dragons and the mole who didn’t have the bag quickly surrounded him and assumed fighting stances.  “I so don’t have time for this…” Rick thought and stood into his own stance.  The others slowly circled around him and grinned.  The mole pulled out a thin but long dagger and held it so the blade pointed behind him.  Rick watched them carefully, waiting for someone to make a move.  They circled for nearly a minute until finally the mole ran toward him holding the dagger above his head.  He swung it at Rick but who jumped aside and grabbed his army.  A dragon leapt at him but was stopped when Rick swung the mole at him; they fell to the ground and scrambled to get up.  The dragon who seemed to be their leader charged at him and tacked Rick to the ground, “You’re goin down.” He said.  He slashed at Rick neck but only clipped him.  They struggled against each other while others simply watched and laughed until finally Rick got his feet under the dragon and kicked him off against a wall.  He hit his head hard and fell to the ground unconscious.  The others looked at Rick in disbelief as he stood up.  He stood slightly hunched over and was breathing heavily.  He looked at the others and raised a hand to them and waved it in a way that said “who wants some?”  The others quickly ran away leaving there unconscious leader and the sack of supplies they had taken from Rick earlier.  “Cowards…” Rick thought as he walked over and picked the sack up, “They don’t even know what to do without their leader.”  He looked in the bag and saw that the dagger was gone as well and some of the coins but everything else was still there.  He shrugged in annoyance and walked back down the alley.  He stopped at the street and looked at the bag again, “I need a weapon…” Rick said to himself, “A good one.  I wonder if there is a forge around here.”  He looked around the city for about a half hour until he saw a small building that smelled like hot metal.  He went over to it and slowly opened the door to prevent creaking; he sneaked inside and closed the door behind him.  “Good thing they don’t have locks on this door.” He said while searching for a weapon to use.  A few minutes later he saw a large but dusty sword.  He walked over and picked it up.  He wiped of the layer of dust and examined it, despite its size the sword was surprisingly light, it looked like a two handed sword with a large dark blue gem in its pummel, the blade was an inch and a half thick and nearly 5 inches wide, the blade was four and half feet long, had a shiny silver color, and seemed to have runes etched into its blade and hand guard which was shaped like a pair of folded dragon wings.  Near the point of the blade was a gem the same shade of blue and the one in the pummel but it was long and narrow instead of round.  Rick took the blade in one hand and raised it up to the light.  Something about the sword was different, it felt… powerful.  Rick looked at the runes on it and tried to read them but wasn’t able to understand the language or even recognize it.  He took the rest of the coins out of the sack and placed them on the ground where it was before and felt the building.  When he was outside and away from any objects he swung the sword with both hands and did various jabs and moves until he was satisfied with it and then placed it in a large sheath he had quickly grabbed before he left.  He slung it over his back and tightened the strap until it was comfortable.  “Ok.” Rick said, “I should go before someone sees me.”  He ran to the cities gate, the sword was easy to run with despite its size.  When he was there he saw some patrols up on the wall.  “Shit… the just got a whole lot harder.” He complained.  Rick snuck along the shadows until he found an unguarded area of the wall and used his claws to climb up it.  When he was up on the top of the wall he rested for a few seconds while he remembered which way Fugeo had told him to go.  When he got his bearings he leaped of the wall and silently glided away.  Thanks to his dark colors he wasn’t seen by any guards.
The next Morning everyone woke up and came out of their rooms. During the night Spyro and Cynder must have spoken to Ignitus at some point in the night because Cynder was carrying her egg.  Diamond and Fugeo both came out of their own rooms and greeted them and began to walk towards the room Rick has stayed in.  When they opened the door they realized he was gone. “Where is he?!” Spyro yelled.   “I don’t know…” Diamond answered, “Fugeo do you have any idea?”  They all looked at him hoping that he would know but he quickly said, “No sorry I haven’t seen him since we all went to sleep.”  Cynder look at Spyro and asked, “What are we going to do?”  “I don’t know.” Spyro answered, “Should be go look for him?”  Diamond answered, “Where do we even start, he could be anywhere.”  “I guess that’s true.” Cynder answered, “I hope we can still trust him… strange things have been happening ever since he appeared.”  Spyro looked over at her and agreed.
