The Legend of the Rose Dancer

Chapter 8

After a long day, we all lay down for the night. I smile at Arc and kiss his cheek before I lay down next to the campfire.

"לילה טוב, ד'ארק" I say affectionately with a small yawn, nuzzling his neck before slowly falling asleep. (Translation: Goodnight, Arc) I hear a faint 'לילה טוב, Kyara' from Arc right before I fall asleep. (Translation: Goodnight, Kyara)

'Arc's POV

I smirk at the sleeping form of Kyara, losing the form of Arc and showing my true form, a large black dragon with red tipped wings, dusty grey eyes with flecks of blood red, and large horns when I'm sure everyone else is asleep. I quietly sigh with relief as I stretch my tired wings, sharp dagger-like bones protruding from the ridges in my wings as I stretch. I grin menacingly as I slowly bring one of my wings towards Kyara's neck. Ignoring the strange feeling of being watched, I gently hold the blade-like bone against her neck when I hear a menacing growl from behind me. Turning, I see Shock glaring at me.

"גיבור שיין! איך אתה מעז להראות את הפרצוף שלך כאן ?! מה עשית עם ד'ארק גזור ?!" he says loudly, causing the others to stir, Kyara waking up slightly. (Translation: Heroshine! How dare you show your face around here?! What have you done with Arc Cut?!) I smirk evilly.

"אתה אף פעם לא תגלה, הלם החוד!" I say with a loud laugh, not knowing that the others were awake and staring at me with death glares, especially Leah and Kyara. (Translation: You will never find out, Shock Spire!) I hear multiple growls from behind me and turn to see Kyara, Sky, Ant, Nyx, and Springtrap all standing behind me. "Oh, shit..." I whisper to myself as I glare them down.

"How DARE you show your face around here after what you did to your fellow dragons!" Kyara shouts, her eyes slowly becoming blood red. I smirk.

"Herobrine sends his regards. Now, will you fight me for your precious Arc?" I say mockingly with a laugh. Kyara growls.

"What did you do to him, Heroshine?" she asks angrily. I laugh and smirk.

"He's safe in my Ender chest. You can have him back when you defeat me." I say with a smirk. Kyara's eyes go pure blood red.

"Bring it." she says angrily.

Kyara's POV

I nod to Sky and Ant, who toss their amulets into the air at the same time that I throw my gloves in the air. They morph into our battle armor as we summon our special Dragon blades. Heroshine just chuckles.

"אני מאחל לקרב רק רוז רקדנית, מאז בן זוגתה דרקון שהיא נלחמת על." he says with a smirk directed at me. (Translation: I wish to only battle Rose Dancer, since its her dragon partner she's fighting for.) I glare at him as I lower my head for Leah to get on.

"הרוכב נועד יהיה לחימה איתי, לא משנה מה, אבל אני מקבל את התנאים שלך לקרב." I say with a glance towards Leah, who nods and glares at Heroshine. (Translation: My destined rider will fight with me, no matter what, but I accept your terms for battle.) Heroshine smirks and nods. I turn to my brothers, both of them having a worried expression on their faces.

"האם אתה בטוח שאתה יכול להתמודד נלחם בו, רוז רקדנית?" Sky asks with that same worried expression on his face. (Translation: Are you sure you can handle fighting him, Rose Dancer?) I sigh and nod with confidence.

"I know I can do it, Sky. Just trust me. You know I've got tricks up my sleeves." I say with a smirk and a wink. Sky nods and smiles.

"You can do it, Kyara. I know you can!" Leah says with determination. I glance at her and nod with a smile, turning to Heroshine and glaring at him.

(A/N: INTENSE FIGHT SCENE WITH GORE INCOMING!) "Shall we begin, then?" he asks with an air of smugness, seeming to think that he'll win this fight easily. I smirk confidently, summoning my Majestic Blueberry Sword and standing proudly in front of him, the Leojin family crest shining brightly on my dragon armor. Heroshine smirks and charges towards me with a roar. I smirk and teleport behind him, only to have my tail grabbed by Heroshine. I growl and whip it out of his grip. I glare at him, my eyes pure blood red as I viciously attack him, subconsciously grabbing Leah with my wing when she falls off my neck. I slash at him with my sharp claws, scratching the scales above his wing and some of his wing. Black blood slowly oozes out of the wound and Heroshine hisses slightly from the pain. I take the opportunity to slash his wing off with my sword when he squeezes his eyes shut from the pain. He screams in pain as a fountain of black, thick blood gushes from the open wound, a bit of dark bone poking from the wound. In his pain, Heroshine lashes out and manages to knock my sword out of my claws. I glare at him and, after deciding to ignore my fallen blade, charge towards him. He glares at me and charges towards me, roaring loudly. "I WILL NOT BE DEFEATED BY A LOWLY DRAGON LIKE YOU!" he shouts, not noticing the Leojin family crest on my armor. I glare at him, stopping suddenly and standing on my hind legs.

"I am no mere lowly dragon, as you put it." I say with a menacing growl in my voice. "I am a Leojin dragon, the most famous dragon family in all of Paarthurnax!" Heroshine's eyes widen in shock as he finally notices the Leojin family crest on my armor, seeming to visibly pale slightly.

"How did I not notice that crest before?! And why did Herobrine never tell me I'd be fighting the remaining members of the Leojin family?!" Heroshine says with genuine fear in his voice. I grin maliciously and slowly walk towards him in a menacing way. Subconsciously, I put Leah back on my neck as I walk towards Heroshine, summoning my sword once again. Heroshine cowers slightly as I glare him down. I raise my sword and bring it down on his remaining wing, severing it in one blow. He screams in pain as more black blood gushes out of the wound and pools on the ground below him. I glare him down as he whimpers in pain.

"אני, רוז רקדנית של משפחת Leojin, הפקודה בזאת לך לעזוב ולא לחזור!" I say in a commanding voice, causing Heroshine to cower in fear. (Translation: I, Rose Dancer of the Leojin family, hereby command you to leave and never return!) "חזור ד'ארק גזור אלינו באופן מיידי!" Heroshine cowers a little more and nods, holding his claws over the ground and, with glowing black claws, brings my Arc back. (Translation: Return Arc Cut to us immediately!) I nod and smile at Arc. "Now you may leave, Heroshine. Never bother us again or I will kill you. Also, tell Herobrine that we are coming for him, and nothing will stop us from getting our revenge. Now, go." I say with a menacing growl. Heroshine quivers in fear and nods, running as fast as he can towards Herobrine's castle. My eyes slowly change back to their usual electric blue as I slip my gloves back on, let Leah down, and run to Arc, who is tied up and gagged. "Arc! I'm so glad you're alright!" I say with tears in my eyes. Once I reach him, I remove the gag and immediately plant a kiss on his lips. I hear an 'Awwww' come from someone, most likely Nyx, behind me. I untie the ropes and hug him as tightly as I can. Arc smiles and hugs me back, tears coming to his eyes as well.

"Kyara... I was so worried when Heroshine kidnapped me and told me his plan to kill you and everyone else. I'm so glad you're alright." Arc says with a smile. I smile back and continue to hug him tightly, kissing his cheek softly in the embrace. Suddenly, strange rustling could be heard from the nearby shrubbery. I pull away from Arc and draw my sword, prepared to fight again. A boy with spiky auburn hair, tanned skin, and auburn eyes materializes out of the bushes with a groan and a mumble of 'Goddamn fucking bushes...' as he fights his way through the leafy foliage. His galaxy themed shirt gets caught in some branches as he tries to walk in our general direction, not noticing us. Once he finally breaks free from the shrubbery, he spots us and stares as more rustling could be heard.

"Who are you?" he asks warily, slowly pulling his bow out. All of a sudden, a familiar blond man steps out of the bush after the boy.

"Who are you talking to, Jeffery?" he asks in an Australian accent as he glances at us, his eyes widening as he recognizes everyone in our group, except for Leah, Arc, Shade, Shock, Tech, Nyx, and Springtrap. I notice Seto slowly grin as he immediately recognizes the blond Australian. "TC?! Kyara?! Jordan and Ant?! What are you guys doing here?" Seto's grin widens and he immediately sprints to the blond, tackling him with a hug.

"Brice! Where have you been?!" he asks with joyful tears in his eyes. I snicker and whisper 'Hashtag SetoSolace!' to Leah, who snickers and nods. Seto realizes that he's right on top of Brice and blushes heavily as he quickly jumps off, awkwardly standing next to Brice. Brice chuckles and stands up, hugging Seto before walking to us.

"Guys, I'd like you all to meet Jeffery. Jeffery, this is Team Crafted!" Brice says happily. Jeffery seems to ignore Brice and walks towards Jason. "Uhh... Jeffery?" he asks. Jeffery ignores him as he starts talking with Jason. I snicker.

"I don't think he can hear you, Brice. I think he's chatting with a fellow space lover and is getting lost in the topic." I say with a chuckle. Brice groans and throws his hands in the air in an 'I'm done!' gesture. I laugh and walk back to Arc, hugging him and giving him a quick kiss. Shade smiles at us from where the group is, glad to see his destined dragon is alright and no longer in danger. All of a sudden, strange noises can be heard heading in our direction. I stand quickly and look around, trying to see if Heroshine or Destroyer decided to pay us another visit, but see nothing. I notice that the others are on alert as well. Then, the source of the noise shows itself, or should I say himself; a man with black hair in a military cut, black leather jacket, black jeans, very dark sunglasses hiding his eyes entirely, combat boots, scars all over his body, and tan skin. A small group of people, all marching in a uniform fashion, are following the man with the Paarthurnax Army uniforms. They each have a single sword with a greenish-yellow color on the blades. My eyes widen in shock and slight fear as I recognize the material on the blade that makes them greenish-yellow. "ביין של הדרקון!" I whisper fearfully to Arc,, who's eyes widen in fear. (Translation: Dragon's Bane!) "Kyara! That's Dennis Crash! The most feared professional dragon slayer in all of Paarthurnax! He works for the army and kills anything in his path! If he finds out that you and the others are dragons, he'll kill you for sure!" Leah thinks to me urgently. I break out into a small nervous sweat, noticing the other dragons also have a glistening brow out of the corner of my eye. Dennis approaches us after shouting, 'Company. HALT!' The group of people stop directly behind Dennis, standing at attention and awaiting orders. Dennis glares at each of us, like we're dirt on the bottom of his extremely dirty combat boots. His glaring gaze seems to especially focus on me and Arc. Then, he speaks.

"You two look like something a dragon just shat out of its ass after eating an entire village of people! I can't believe Paarthurnax has scum like you two living on its land. Stand up, bitch!" he shouts, glaring at me at the end. "Better do as he says, Kyara..." I stand up tall and try not to glare at the horrible man in front of me.

"Yes, sir. What do you want from us, sir?" I ask in a very well controlled voice. All of a sudden, my head snaps to the side due to Dennis slapping me as hard as he can. Arc glares at Dennis, trying to contain his anger as best as he can. Then, Dennis starts shouting at me.

"Did I tell you to speak, you little bitch?! Huh?! Did I, you little whiny whore?!" he screams at me, getting spittle all over my face. In a split second, he's on the ground with Sky over him, who is glaring deadly daggers at Dennis. He raises his fist and prepares to hit Dennis when he screams in his face.

"How DARE you call my sister a whore?!" he screams at the military officer, landing a hard punch to his face and knocking his sunglasses off of his face, revealing crimson eyes the exact same color as Ty's. Dennis growls and tries to throw a punch back, but is stopped by Sky, who rams his knee into the arm, nearly shattering the bone. Dennis' eyes widen as he throws Sky off of him, seeming to smirk instead of wince in pain like normal people do when their arm is nearly broken. He turns to his platoon and whistles twice, raising the almost broken arm up and pointing at me and Sky. A few members of the platoon grin sadistically as they suddenly start sprinting towards the two of us, swords raised. My eyes widen as the platoon approaches us rapidly, Sky completely unaware of them as he tends to my face. One of the platoon members stops directly behind Sky and raises her sword over his head, grinning sadistically as she shouts 'Die dragons!'. Sky whips around right as the soldier's sword comes down. I shove Sky out of the way and scream in pain when the blade comes in contact with my skin, not penetrating my skin and the greenish-yellow coloring on the blade sizzling when it comes in contact with it. I suddenly feel very woozy and fall to my knees. I hear a very faint 'KYARA! NO!' from everyone in the group as my vision blurs and develops dark blotches. I barely notice when the blade of the sword is suddenly removed with a feminine scream and a dragon's roar. I faintly feel someone grab me when suddenly my vision clears and the woozy feeling disappears. I glance over to see Seto using his powers to heal me while the others are fighting the platoon and Dennis, the dragons in their human form as they fight so they won't be suspected as dragons. Suddenly, a strange clattering noise can be heard and everyone turns to see that a soldier knocked off Ian's sunglasses, revealing baby blue eyes. I pale slightly.

"Oh no... Ian! Try to keep Derp in control!" I shout to Ian, whose eyes are slowly starting to cross in a derpy way. Sky glances at the group of soldiers and grins.

"Ian! Let Derp take over! He can take care of the soldiers while we handle Dennis!" he says with a cocky smirk. The group of soldiers looks at us with a confused look in all of their faces as Ian's eyes go completely derpy and an insane grin appears on his face. Derp Ssundee has been released.
