A few days after Rick and the others had returned everyone was asleep peacefully for the night. However, Cynder seemed uneasy. Within her mind something was present, a dark company. Cynder found herself in a dark room with walls all around her like a prison. Where am I? Cynder asked herself. Suddenly she heard a chuckle, it was familiar. She looked around trying to find the source but saw something. Hello Cynder
a dark voice said, Its good to see you again
Her eyes widened as she recognized the voice, Malefor?! she screamed walking backward trying to get away. The voice chuckled and said, Good to know that you still remember old friends. Im not your friend! she yelled, you used me, I hate you! Now, now, hate is such a strong word. Malefor said, Why dont you try admiring
Cynders heart raced, What do you? she asked. I want you, my dear. He said, I need you to command my army again. NO! she screamed, I WILL NEVER DO THAT EVER AGAIN, I would never harm my family or friends. A shadow appeared before her in the shape of Malefor, with dark smoke rolling off its body. Family? Friend? Malefor said while beginning to walk around her, Theyre faking, they dont care about you, but with me
you will be appreciated, taken care of, and waited on for you every whim. All I ask is your undying loyalty and will to serve me. No! Cynder yelled at him, I dont want anything to do with you! Malefor stood up and said, Very well, if you wont join me Ill make you. Suddenly Cynder found that she couldnt move her legs as Malefor moved closer to her. He stopped in front of her and held out a paw with a dark energy orb above it and move closer and closer toward her. NO! she screamed at the top of her lungs, STAY AWAY FROM ME!!! STAY AWAY!!! I DONT WANT TO, PLEASE NO!!! The orb touched her forehead and absorbed into her body.
Cynder? CYNDER! Spyro yelled shaking her vigorously. Flint was pushing on her head and asked in a young terrified voice, What wrong with mommy? I dont know. Spyro answered, Flint can you go get the others for me? He nodded and leapt off the bed and ran into the other bedrooms where Fugeo and Diamond were lying with their children. He jumped onto the bed and shook Diamonds face. She woke up and looked at him and saw his scared look. She instantly knew something was wrong and woke Fugeo. Flint said, Please, help, mommies screaming and she wont wake up! They ran to the room and the hatchling went to Rick and Sophies to wake them they woke and went to the room and say everyone trying to wake the dragoness. Whats wrong? Sophie asked. I dont know. Spyro said, She just started to scream. Maybe I can help. Rick said. He walked over and placed his hand on her forehead. She had a cold sweat. He took a deep breath and closed his eyes. He concentrated on her and noticed something that didnt belong there was inside her. He opened his eye and said, Somethings there, something
dark. What is it? Spyro said. A dark energy. Rick said, Soph I might need your help. She nodded and walked over. Sophie placed her paw onto of Ricks hand and surrounded them in a glowing aura. They both closed their eye and found themselves in Cynder mind. They looked around and saw her squirming on the ground violently. They ran toward her but were stopped by the dark dragon. Well, what do we have here? he said, the void dragon and a light dragon? Oh no
Sophie said, Its him
Ah you know who I am. Malefor said. Rick took his sword out and assumed a fighting position. Sophie, you go help Cynder. He whispered, Ill keep him busy. She nodded and got ready to fight if she had to.
Sophie ran toward Cynder and reached her; she looked back and saw Rick fighting the dragon. His sword glowed white which meant it deflected all physical attacks. She turned toward Cynder and placed a paw on her head. She took a deep breath and concentrated all her light on Cynder. She started to release purifying light into her but as she did so Cynder started to grow bigger until she had the body of a full grown dragoness. Sophie works as hard as she could but was cut off when she heard rick yell, Sophie! Look out! She turned around and saw Malefor swing a massive claw at her.
Sophie fell away from Cynder and gasped for air and she opened her eyes and found herself in Spyro and Cynders room again. She stood up and coughed then looked at Rick. Suddenly gasped and opened his eye again. So
he said, that was Malefor? Sophie nodded and they looked at the dragoness who now looked full grown. Her voice started to become more matured but Sophie placed her paw on Cynder head again and poured more light into her. Cynder yelled one last time and became silent. Spyro looked at she and begged, Please, please wake up, I dont want to lose Spyro looked at she and begged, Please, please wake up, I dont want to lose you. Cynder moaned abit in a mature voice and opened her eye. Unlike when she was evil, her eye still remained the same emerald green as earlier. What happened
she said in an adult voice, Spyro? she looked at him, are you alright? He remained silent as Cynder sat up and realized she was taller than before. She looked at her paw and began to panic, Spyro?! she said, what happened to me?! I dont know. He answered, But at least its still you.
The remained awake for the rest of the night until the guardians woke up and realized what happened to Cynder. Everyone explained to them what happened in the night but when Rick and Sophie started to explain about Malefor, which made the guardians more uneasy than ever, Cynder began to cry. She stood up and walked to her room with Flint following her. Despite her new appearance Flint still knew it was her. Spyro got up and walked after her a few minutes later leaving the others to talk. He walked into their room and saw her crying on the bed with Flint lying against her head. He walked up and sat down next to her. Cynder? he asked, concerned, Are you ok? No
she said, Look at me! Im a monster. No. Spyro said, Youre not a monster, Malefor is the monster. Spyro thought for a second then said, Cynder Ill be right back. She didnt answer so he kissed her on the cheek and walked out of the room. I wonder
he said. Spyro took a deep breath and began to use his dragon time powers. A minute later Spyro walked back into the room and said in a deep powerful voice, Cynder? she looked up at him and her eyes grew wide.
