Rick and the others leapt to the side to dodge the cannonball by just barely. They each rolled on the ground now separated and looked at the pirate. Fang growled and pulled out a large sword which exploded into a purple flame. He ran toward Neo and swung the sword down at him; Neo lifted Bone-Crusher and blocked the sword. However when the weapons made contact a purple wave of energy ran down the hammers length and surged through Neos body throwing his to the ground. Get rid of this chump! the parrot yelled and Fang lifted the still growing sword. Neo tried to get up but couldnt move. Rick say him on the ground and ran toward him and held out Razor-Edge but as he was about to stop the blow the sword glowed a bright white and as both sword made contact sparks flew and an energy wave ran through the sword, however just as it was about to enter Ricks body it stopped and ran back up the sword and through Fangs body. He fell backward with a grunt and looked at Rick with surprise. What in the world was that?! both parrots said in unison. Rick quickly helped Neo up and asked, You alright dude? He nodded and picked his hammer back up. Fang stood back up and charged again but Sophie rammed him in the side causing both parrots to go spinning through the air. They quickly regained their balance and flew high up in the air. Fang stood up and grabbed Sophie by the neck and slammed her into a tree, then held his hocked hand up to her throat. Rick held the still glowing sword up high and ran at Fang yelling, Dont you touch her! but stopped when he saw an entire fleet of flying pirate ships coming toward them. Fang looked up in the air for his parrots but they were gone, so without knowing what to do he stepped back and dropped Sophie. Rick ran over and helped her up and stepped back. He and Neo looked up at the ships and said, OH COME ON! A large anchor dropped next to Fang who climbed on and was pulled up to one of the ships. Fire the cannon already! they heard the civilized parrot yell. They heard loud explosions and saw nearly twelve cannonballs coming at them. Ah crap
Rick complained. They began to dodge the cannonballs and Rick and Sophie leapt into the air and flew toward the ship. HEY! Neo yelled still dodge cannonballs as they continued to come, Dont leave me down here! Sophie and Rick turn around and went back down to Neo, and picked him up by the arms. AH! Neo yelled, That hurts! Rick and Sophie loosened their grip and picked him up. They flew toward the nearest ship and landed on the deck to find it was infested with pirates. They all turned toward them and took out there swords. Rick and Neo took out their weapons and they both began to glow red. Sophie assumed a fighting stance and said as quietly as she could, Guys I need you to get me down below deck if we can drain the energy crystals the ship will fall then we can get away. What about the others? Neo asked. Sophie answered, Theyll be too distracted by this one. The pirates yelled and charged at them and began to fight. For nearly an hour Rick, Neo and Sophie fought, trying to get to the back of the ship where a door that led below deck was. They had cleared out most of the pirates but noticed that more from the other ships were coming over one floating life boats. They fought them as well until practically the whole ship was cleared except for a few pirates who were hiding. They went below deck and saw a huge crystal that glowed bright green. They walked up to it and Sophie placed her paws on the surface. She drained the energy from the crystal and as it became dim the ship began to shake and fall. We have to get out of here! Rick yelled. They all ran toward the deck and as they were about to leave they saw Fang and the parrots standing in the door way. Youre not goin any ware FOOL! Welcome to a world ah hurt! the parrot said. Fang stock his sword out again and walked down the steps into the lower deck. Everyone stepped back and prepared to fight. Sophie, what did you do with that energy? Neo asked. I absorbed it. She answered. Could you use it to do that attack you used on the ground; we dont have much time before this ship hits the ground. Ill try. Sophie answered. She took a deep breath and breath out the same bright smoke. It floated toward Fang who tried to grab it and wrapped around him. It became brighter and dimmed to show Fang on the ground and the two parrots stumbling around blinded by the light. Not what I expected. Neo said, But Ill take it
LETS GO! They ran past Fang and up to the deck Rick and Sophie jumped into the air and picked up Neo. They flew away to a safe distance and looked back to see the ship hitting the ground and being destroyed. Man
Rick said, I know there pirates and all
but its sad to see them die like that, crushed under their own ship. Sophie agreed and they turned toward the direction they had been going before they were stopped. They flew for a few hours until Neos arms started to go numb and they set him down and walked for the rest of the day.
Spyro, Cynder, and Flint were asleep in their room with the hatchling between them. Flint woke up hearing a small noise near the door and saw a small toy in the door way. He hopped up and off the bed and walked over to it. Flint sniffed it and then heard someone walking toward him; he looked up and saw a large silver dragon standing over him. He peeped at the dragon who looked down and smile, Hello little one. The dragon said leaning down by him. Flint instinctively sniffed the air and peeped again. Cynder heard this time and bolted up-right to see him looking at the dragon. She gasped and touched Spyros shoulder to wake him. He looked at the dragon and recognized him. Ignitus?! he said excitedly. Ingitus looked up at them and smiled, Good morning proud mother and father. He said. Ignitus? Cynder asked then gasped excitedly, It is you! Spyro and Cynder ran over and greeted him. They spoke for abit while Flint played with the toy Ignitus had given him. Spyro finally asked Ignitus, What are you doing here? I thought you had to stay at the White Isles. He answered, I thought I would come visit my grandson. Spyro and Cynders eye grew wide and they both yelled, GRANDSON?! Ignitus took a deep breath and said, Spyro I think its time we had a little talk, come you come with me? Spyro looked at Cynder and then at Ignitus again, Uh
he answered. He, Cynder, and Flint got up followed Ignitus to the dining room where Cyril, Volteer, and Terrador were sitting (Ignitus had told them to wait there). They sat down and Cynder scratched Flints back to help him go back to sleep during the conversation. Ignitus looked at the three guardians and nodded; they nodded back and began to explain to Spyro. Terrador was the first to speak, Spyro, Ignitus here is indeed you father, we wanted to wait until the proper time to tell you and now it seems to be the proper time. Diamond and Fugeo walked in and saw Ignitus; they quickly greeted him and joined the conversation. Why didnt you tell me sooner? Spyro asked. Ignitus took a deep breath and said, I wanted to, believe me I did
I didnt think you were ready yet. NOT READY?! Spyro yelled, IVE ALWAYS WANTED TO KNOW WHO MY REAL FATHER WAS! I wanted to know my parent
I know I was raised by dragonflies
Ignitus placed a paw on his shoulder and said, Please, could you ever forgive me for keeping such a secret from you? Spyro looked up at him and was going to say something but was interrupted by Cynder, You know
youre lucky Spyro you should be happy to know your father, you shouldnt be mad at him
unlike you Ill never know my parents
She lowered her head down and looked a Flint who was fast asleep by her leg. Spyro took a deep breath and said, Alright... he looked up at Ignitus and said, I forgive you
dad Ignitus smiled and said, Thank you, son, I just wish your mother was here to meet you. What was she like? Spyro asked. Ignitus smiled and began to tell Spyro about her.
