After I few hard to get out laughs we started to fly back to the plains of dragons. Scorch and Shara took turns helping me fly. Since I just took out Shrag with a light ray that I figured was a one time deal.
"Dang man your heavy!" Scorch complained.
"Hey! Watch it." I laughed. I started feeling a bit better after that. As I looked into the sky. It went from a sky blue in daylight to pitch black at night.
"Wait I feel better I can fly on my own from here." I told them as Shara was about to start her turn of carrying me. And I was right my body was getting better. I faltered a bit trying in a rush to fly. But none the less I was alright. We fly another four hours before seeing the temple.
"Man they work fast!" Shara exclaimed.
"Then again Aria is the leader now so it makes sense." I reasoned. But I was still surprised. It went from a temple with several battle holes from the war before to like it never even happened.
"Aria is a good motivator." Scorch commented.
"I guess I know who her motivation was to get started." Shara said staring at me.
"Then again I cant blame her." I said remembering all that happened in the past day. I took a tail shot for Frank and in return Frank took an earth spike to the chest for me. My head sagged at the thought.
Frank was a good friend. But don't dwell on the thought of it being your fault." Scorch said to me as he placed his claw on my shoulder. I looked at him and nodded.
"How about we go tell everyone we are alright?" I shouted. "Last one at the gate has to tell Aria about me wearing my self out. They both jumped at that thought. So I took it to my advantage and dive bombed for the ground. With Scorch and Shara right behind me. I let up as to not crash. But Shara and Scorch past me up. They got to the gate before me.
"Yeah. Your telling Aria yourself. " Shara said as I got to the gate. I chuckled nervously at the thought of how she was going to take it. I gulped when I realized she might be angry at thought of me nearly dying. Or she would be happy I was ok. We walked in every body was happy we were ok. Then we got back to our rooms. Shara continued to hers while me and Scorch were walking into ours.
"RONCO!" I heard as I opened the door.
"AAH!" I yelled in surprise of her waiting in my room and leaping at me. She knocked me to the ground. "Aria easy I still in some pain." I told her and she immediately got off me. We walked in and I told her what all happened. Scorch had to tell the Frank parts for it was hard for me to talk about. Then we got to the light ray part. When were finished she didn't get angry. But me and Scorch had our wings ready and braced just in case. She moved my wing out of the way and gave me a big kiss. Scorch took the hint and left.
"Ronco while I am a bit mad that you would go out of your way against Shrag that you nearly killed yourself. I am just happy you're ok. And I'm sorry about Frank." She told me as she was bandaging my legs. Which were pretty beat up. After all I did get knocked through a metal wall. "Now I want you to take it easy for a couple of days." Aria looked at me as she left. "I'm going to check with Shara and Scorch and see how beat up they are."
"Be sure to knock first." I told her. She shrugged it off. It was a few days later that I was out with Aria.
"Its so peaceful now." Aria said taking a big breath.
"But for how long?" I stated. And with that Shara popped out of nowhere. Scorch did the same thing.
"Oh I'll get you Shara for that." Aria yelled as she ran off after Shara.
So that's my story. My best friend died. The girl that hated me now loves me. My former crush is in love with my new best friend. And my rival is now my best friend. Man things got twisted up to end like this. Later.
