Aaron laughed as he saw the fear in Spyro and Cynder's eyes, that sight was just a beautiful picture to him. "It seems you do remember me now." Aaron said in Malefor's voice.
"How are you controlling his body Malefor?" Cynder asked with much fear in her voice.
"Ah Cynder, my former prized apprentice. Out of all people, you should know how I am controlling him." Aaron replied back, and his answer only brought more fear into Cynder. "And now the same way I am controlling him, will be the same for you." He said as he raised his hand. Cynder looked away as she felt darkness swirl around her, but to her and Malefor's surprised the darkness disappeared.
"How is this possible, you should still be influenced by the darkness?" Aaron asked.
"She let in the light Malefor; she is no longer your puppet!" Spyro yelled catching Aaron's attention.
"Oh, is that so and I shall guess she is yours. She will always be mine; I just have to influence her again like I did years ago." Aaron started to chuckle as he moved closer to Cynder. He raised his hand and grabber her jaw. He moved her face from side to side, observing her. "How did you break my bond before young one?" He whispered."Spyro help me let in the light." She replied back and Aaron looked towards Spyro.
"It always leads back to you don't it you little whelp." Aaron said as he let go of Cynder's jaw. He walked over to Spyro and placed his hand over Spyro's restraint. Soon Spyro started to feel his throat clench up as the restraint started to constrict around it. The hold started to get tighter and tighter and Aaron just laughed as Spyro started to struggle and try to release Aaron's grip.
"Stop it!" Cynder yelled as Spyro stopped breathing, the grip was so strong that is completely stopped him from breathing. Aaron just looked at her and chuckled.
"You have feelings for him don't you?" He asked as he tightened the restraint to the point of breaking Spyro's neck.
"Please, just let him go." Cynder said with fear in her voice and tears rolling down her cheeks.
"I shall, if you come back to me, and I would accept soon. Otherwise" He looked to Spyro "His death will be on your hands." Aaron just laughed as he watched Spyro suffer, waiting to hear Cynder's response.
"I will, just please let him go." A wicked grin grew over Aaron's face as he heard her response. He released his grip and the restraint loosened over Spyro's throat, allowing him to breath.
"Good choice young one, but I will need you to prove you are loyal to me." Aaron moved from Spyro over to Cynder and grabbed her chin once again.
"Yes Master, how shall I prove I am loyal?" Cynder responded with much regret. She looked over to see Spyro staring at her. She looked away as more tears started to roll down her cheeks.
"Hmm, how can we prove you are loyal?" Aaron noticed the tears and looked at Spyro. "You love that whelp don't you?" He looked back at her. She didn't say anything and looked away. He shook her and she looked at him.
"Answer me now!" He demanded and she just looked at Spyro."I do love him." She smiled and Spyro smiled back. Soon her attention went from Spyro to Aaron as he moved her head.
"Not anymore." He said. Soon Malefor's head popped out of Aaron's head making it look like he had two heads. Malefor just laughed as looked at Cynder. "From now on, you will serve me as my apprentice and as my slave." He said as he closed in on her and soon he was kissing her. Spyro was surprised at what Malefor was doing; he was also enraged by it. Soon Malefor pulled away smiling, but his smiled disappeared as Cynder spat poison right at into his face, but he was too quick as he moved back into Aaron's head and move him right in the way. "AHH" he screamed as the poison hit him in the left eye."Cynder, why did you do that?" Aaron asked in his normal voice which surprised both Cynder and Spyro.
"Aaron, I'm sorry. Are you okay?" Aaron just covered his eye as he started to laugh, and as he laughed his voice returned to being Malefor's. Soon Aaron looked up and both Spyro and Cynder looked at his scared left eye. "Why you little!" He started to say as he approached Cynder with his arm back. "How dare you try to hurt me you worthless trash!' He screams as he sent his arm flying towards her. Before he could smack her, a solid beam of pure white light shot out and hit him in the arm. The beam did no damage, but it grabbed his attention to look at the origin of the beam, and to his surprise it had come from Spyro.
"Don't you dare touch her!" Spyro yelled as Aaron started to walk towards him, but he did get too far before the weirdest thing happen that none of them thought would happen. Aaron started to choke himself with the arm Spyro shot. He kept his grip strong for several seconds before he was able to pry it off. He held it down for several seconds and soon he had regained control of the arm."It seems my little puppet had control back in this arm, but that won't happen again, now for you." He said as he started to approach Spyro again only this time, he had something forming around his hand. "Hmm it seems I can still use my powers even in the body, how promising." He said as earth started to form around his hand in till a solid sword of stone was in his hand. He raised it up and looked right at Spyro and he grinned. "Now I will finally be rid of you, you little whelp!" He yelled as he swung down. Spyro looked away while Cynder watched as the blade neared his throat.
"NO!" She screamed as a beam of pure light shot forth from her, hitting Aaron arm, throwing his aim off and causing him to hit the wall right next to Spyro."Why you little bitch." He said as he brought the sword up in the other hand and ran towards Cynder to strike her with it, but before he could get close Spyro shot the same beam she did into his other arm. He dropped the sword as his arms and head hung low, but soon he started to rise back up with his arms extended in front of him, he just shook his head. "No, it's not possible." He said before he started to strangle himself.
"What is he doing?" Spyro asked as he looked towards Cynder."I think Aaron is taking back control of his body." She said as both dropped back onto the ground as the restraints released them. Soon Aaron had stopped with both his arms around his throat, he looked up and both of them and they could tell Aaron was back in control, for now. His eyes remained purple, but what they saw in those eyes was Aaron.
"Shoot me with that beam!" He said as he struggled to keep in control."Aaron we can't we'll hit you!" Spyro said in response.
"Don't think about it just shoot!" Aaron yelled as he started to lose control "Hurry and shoot before he takes back control!" Spyro and Cynder looked at each other and nodded, they didn't know how they were able to shoot the beams before but they knew they had to do it in order to help him. They continued to look at each other in till Aaron screamed as Malefor started to get back in control. They didn't take another second before they both turned and unleashed a powerful beam of pure light straight towards Aaron. Malefor had taken control by then but didn't have enough time to react; all he could do was scream as the beam hit him straight through Aaron's body, knocking him out of Aaron's body. He flew back while Aaron fell to one knee, checking himself making sure that he had gained full control. He looked up to see both Spyro and Cynder breathing heavily as they tried to stand up, but they had lost a lot of energy hitting him with the light beam, so he decided to take control by taking on Malefor by himself. He turned around to see Malefor standing up and looking straight at him, and by the looks of Malefor, he was weak from the light."How dare you, I could have given you all that you wanted." Malefor said as he started to breathe rather heavily.
"You couldn't give me great friends like Spyro and Cynder. Now before I kick your ass, tell me why you are so small? I thought you would be bigger." Malefor's eyes went wide as he looked down on himself; Aaron was right as he saw himself that he was the size of Aaron. Aaron saw this and realized that what had happened was that the beam had knocked him down to size, literately."Even with my size at this, you will not defeat me!" Malefor said as he saw Aaron put his fist up.
"It seems you don't realize how good a fighter I am, and what I know remember." Aaron said as he rushed right up to Malefor, he tried to deliver a right kick, but Malefor stopped him, but not completely. Aaron hit the ground, and used it to throw himself back up and spun kicking Malefor right in the head with his left foot, but it didn't stop there as Malefor caught his other foot after being hit, but Aaron saw to this. He tighten his legs and caught Malefor right between his legs, then he swung down, grab his ankles, and pull. Malefor was sent flying up as Aaron came crashing down. Once he hit the ground Aaron was right behind him with slamming him into the ground even more. Aaron back flipped away and watched as Malefor rolled over off his back and stand up."You got more than that, because that was pathetic." Aaron just grinned as he took a step back.
"Then, have a little of this." Aaron said as he suddenly appeared in front of Malefor. He punched Malefor right in the stomach, but it didn't end there as electricity started to run through his body, right into Malefor's. Aaron jumped back as Malefor tried to hit him, but with the electricity running through him in his weaken state, it nearly paralyzed him.
"How did you use electricity?" Malefor asked as he looked at Aaron once the effect wore off. Aaron looked at his hands.
"Seems some of your power still rest in me." Was all he said before he dashed right towards Malefor. Spyro and Cynder just watched in surprise as Aaron went into a blur of combos on Malefor. They saw elements fly like never before as every punch, kick, and element Aaron threw always hit right on. Soon Aaron jumped back and held his hands back. Malefor was about to fall from the damage but held himself up and he watched Aaron. Aaron just grinned as he looked straight at Malefor, then to see Spyro and Cynder standing beside him. "This is for my parents you had those two insult so much." Aaron said as a strange light started to charge in his hands, soon the light was also being seen in Spyro and Cynder's mouth. Soon they all released a huge beam of light straight towards Malefor, and it was a direct his as he was sent flying back into the wall. Once the dust from the walls disappeared they looked to see Malefor gone, but a lot of blood on the wall from him. They knew he got away, but that it would be a long time before he tried to attack again. Soon Spyro and Cynder had gone to Hunter's side as they tried their best to get him to Cynder's bed. Aaron helped as they lifted him up in the bed, they might have been hurt but Hunter was still in a very bad condition.
"Spyro, Cynder go see if the elders are awake and if they aren't, try to wake them up." Both of them agreed as they hurried down the hall towards the elder's room. Spyro and Cynder didn't have to go far as the elders were already on their way to their room.
"Spyro, Cynder what happened? We woke up a few moments ago with darts in our necks." Ignitus asked as he looked down at the tired dragons.
"The hunters were here and Aaron dealt with them, but then Malefor came." Cynder said as she looked up at the fire elder.
"Malefor had corrupted Aaron like he did Cynder, but I think we cleansed him." Spyro said in response with Cynder.
"Where are Aaron and Hunter for he wasn't resting in bed?" Terrador asked.
"And what happened to you two for you both look like you have been through quite the predicament that had caused much fatigue." Volteer stopped as Cyrll stared at him.
"What he means is what happened to you two, and to Aaron?" Cyrll asked. Spyro and Cynder explained what had happened as much as they could as they all hurried down to Cynder's room to see Aaron holding his hand, gritting his teeth in pain. Spyro and Cynder hurried over to him while the elders looked over Hunter.
"Aaron, what happened?" Spyro asked and Aaron just smiled.
"Nothing, just hurt my hand when I was fighting, I was trying to pull the sword out and just realized the damage I took." Aaron said, though he was lying for when he touched the blade it sent a jolt of pain up his arm, but he didn't want to say anything for enough had happened."I'll be fine, but I'd say we end this day with a victory meal, for I am sure we are all hungry." Everyone agreed, even Hunter in the state that he was in had agreed.
They all ate while Spyro, Cynder, and Aaron retold what had all happened. Spyro and Cynder had to retell what happened after Aaron went berserk for he could not recall what had happened. Though the most surprising even out of all of what they told were two facts. One was that Aaron could use the elements, but they put that off saying that he somehow kept some of Malefor's power when he was using his body, and the second was that they could all use the element of light. The fact of Malefor being defeated and weakened for now was also great news for it would give them time to get things done and ready to a final fight. Once the meal was over everyone had sent out to get some rest all except Aaron. He was too happy to sleep, but he was also worried. He was happy he was able to remember about his past, which was how he was able to use the elements, but he was also worried. He was taken out of his world, was the reason because of his power, or for something else.
