It was the middle of the night. The moon as high as it would go on this peaceful night. The only sounds that could be heard were the nightly animals moving about, the cool summer breeze blowing though the trees, and Terador walking slowly. He would always be out around this time since there was always minimal movment, and little to disturb his research of any new herbs that may grow during this time of peace. As he carefuly walked he came onto a clearing where two ape comanders stood checking the area. He layed down out of their sights and carefuly moved so they were in his sights.
"Area cleared. No dragons or any suspicious movement at all in this region." One of them spoke turning around to face the other.
"Hey do you have any idea why Malefor has us doing these inspecions almost every night? It wasn't intill some time in the last couple days he had all of us start doing this." The other shook his head.
"No idea. The only one would be Posion Tooth since he is always with Malefor. But he almost nevers..." Out of no where a even bigger ape walkes out of the darkness of the forest as the others bowed.
"Get up and report!" The big one yelled.
"Nothing to report Sargent Posion Tooth!" Both Comanders said.
"Good. Now go to the castle and get ready for a new arrival. He is going to be a powerful ally."
"Not to disrespect sir but who is it?" Posion Tooth looked at both of them and laughed.
"According to Malefor another survivor from the raid we were on many years ago." Terador went wide eyed as he carefully crawled back. When he thought he was far enough away he jumped up and flew towards the temple, but he wasn't far enough away and warned the apes.
"What was that?!"
"It's the Earth Elder. After him but don't attack. Watch and make sure none of them fly or step out of that temple. If they do report to me as soon as possible." They nodded and ran up and tree and jumped towards the flying dragon. Staying back far enough to have him in their sights but far enough so he couldn't hear or see them.As he reached the temple the doors opened and lock right away behind him. He ran fast but quietly so Spyro and Cynder could hear him, but the other Elders could.
"Terador what is wrong?!" Ignitu ran after him into the vision room.
"I was out and I over heard a couple of apes talking. They said Malefor is bringing an ally. A powerful one."
"Any idea who or what it could be, and where could he have come from since most of the powerful dragons and creatures are dead since he killed them years ago?" Volteer asked as he sat around the pool of vision like everyone else did.
"Well..." The rest of the elders looked at him.
"Who could possibly be this power ally that we don't have any record of?" Cyril sasked and looked curiously at Terador.
"They said a survivor from the raid they were on many years ago." Everyone went wide eyed.
"You mean a survivor from the year of the dragon, but impossible!" Terador nodded.
It's what I heard but only one way to know." They all looked into the pool to nothing but a mark."What the?" They studied the mark to see it formed a dragon but nothing else appeared.
"Hmm interesting. The pool showed us a mark which must lead the the survivor in some way but what way could it be since we have no idea who and where he could be so the." Volteer was cut off by Ignitus.
"We'll research on the mark tomorrow for now it's late and the best thing to do is get some sleep." They all nodded they couldn't help but wonder what that mark could mean but like Ignitus said they would look on it tomorrow for now they went back into their room and fell asleep. Just in time so they wouldn't hear Spyro yell as he woke up from a nightmare scaring Sparx out of his bed. He caught himself in the just in time before hitting the ground.
"Hey Spyro what was that for?!" Sparx flew over to Spyro.
"Sorry bro. I had a nightmare." He walked out of his bed and walked out onto the Balcony.
"You mean the one when Cynder turns evil again." Sparx rolled his eyes.
"No this one was different. I was fighting another dragon, and it wasn't Cynder or Malefor, but a silver dragon." He looked up into the night sky for a few seconds.
"A silver dragon. That's new." Sparx looked at Spyro to see him nodding.
"Yeah but something about the dream. It felt to real but who knows." Spyro kept staring at the sky till they heard a scream and ran towards the source. Once they reached a room they saw it was Cynder who was yelling and crying in her sleep. She was having a nightmare as well. Spyro ran over and quickly shook her trying to wake her up. It work but caused her to react by slapping Spyro on the right cheek. Sparx laughed and Spyro glared at him making him leave the room just in time before Cynder jumped up in her bed.
"Cynder are you ok?" She looked at him and he could see she was crying. She quickly looked away and wiped her eyes.
"Yes I'm fine," She looked at him and he could see the tears were gone,"But are you ok." She must have relised she had accidently hit him.
"Yeah I'm fine, it didn't hurt too much." As he looked at her he couldn't help but notice her scales as they reflected the moon's light so perfectly on her slim body. Showing her perfect curves, and her eyes.
"Can I help you?" Spyro snapped out of his thought and relised he was staring.
"Oh sorry." He looked away but looked back."I came to see if you were ok." To his surprise she looked away quickly.
"Why do you care?!" She snapped angerly
"I care because you're my friend." He said, moving closer slowly.
"Why do you say that. I almost killed you. I don't deserve you as a friend!" She kept her stare away silently crying.
"Listen," He grabbed her chin and turned her attention towards his face, but he could see the tears in her eyes,"Your my friend. Remember Malefor was controling you. It was him not you." Her eyes drifted of his and went towards the ground.
"Spyro...just leave me alone." Out of nowhere Spyro surprised her by pulling her into a tight hug. He did this for no reason that he could explain. He felt like he had to protect her, take care of her, and try to make her happy no matter the cost.
"Cynder I know you don't mean that. Your my friend, and as a friend I care for you. No matter what." She could help but hug him.
"Spyro I'm sorry." She started to cry again.
"Don't cry. I'm here." She continued to cry this time out of happiness."Please stop and tell me what's wrong."
"I'm just scared from that nightmare. Malefor was in it. We both were as well as someone else, but you died and I felt so empty for some reason and couldn't help but scream." He started to carefuly pat her on the back.
"Don't worry I'm here." He couldn't help but feel something heavy in his chest he wanted to say something but couldn't find the right words to say it so he kept it quiet. Though he didn't know Cynder felt the same thing.
"I'm ok. Please let me go Spyro." He did and she looked deep into his eyes."Thank you Spyo."
"No problem." He smiled, and Cynder smiled as well. Yet she could help but look at his body like he did hers. She looked from the tip of his golden horns, down his purple musculer body, down to the tip of his tail. Once she relised she was staring she quickly looked away blushing.
"Spyro." He looked at her.
"Do you want to walk out to the Balcony." He nodded and they got off the bed. As they left the room they both couldn't help but steal glances at each other, but once they reached the Balcony they both laid down and look at the stars."This night is beautiful. Do you think so Spyro."
"Oh yeah. You're beau..ah, I mean IT is beautiful." He blushed and she continued to look up into the sky looking at the moons. When she looked down Spyro was looking at her and she blushed.
"Thank you Spyro for everything." She moved closer and rubber her head against his shoulder and he returned the favor.
"Your welcome. You're my friend and I'll help in anyway I can." She backed up and looked at him and smiled.
"Spyro, would it be ok if I can sleep with you."She blushed" So if I have another nightmare I can know you're right there beside me." Spyro couldn't help but blushed but he smiled.
"Sure. I don't mind." Cynder was over joyed by his response but hide it behind a simple smile. They moved off the balcony and into Spyro's bed. Cynder was the first to move to get on and soon Spyro followed. Cynder turned away from him keeping her back towards him. Though she tried to sleep, she still remained awake and scared. Spyro could see this and moved closer, bringing his arms around her. She started to calm down and started to feel safe and happy. It wasn't long before she was sound asleep in Spyro's strong arms. Soon he was asleep as well. He held onto Cynder's slinder form. Both of them having a good dream. Spyro dreaming of Cynder and she dreamed of him.
On the outside the apes kept watch not seeing any suspicious about that place but they kept watch waiting for any movment that could lead to trouble. They weren't the only one watching. Terador was too. He couldn't sleep because he was worried about this new ally Malefor was getting so he stayed up and watch for any sigh of this enemy. He stayed near the front door incase anything was to happen. He stayed there for so long a time the sun started to rise and so was a bunch of noises, Terador opened the door to see a strange creature on the floor infront of the door and a couple of apes nearby. He blasted one with his earth mace and smack the other one with his paw. He looked back down at the creature who looked at him before fainting. Terador quickly called the elders and carried him inside.
