A Blinding Hope

By Bri Cannistraro

Other / Action

Prologue

A/N: I DO NOT OWN ANY OF YU GI OH 5DS OR HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON! ALL RIGHTS OF BOTH FRANCHISES GO TO THE OWNERS! THE ONLY THING I OWN ARE THE OCS (VERY SMALL AMOUNT OF OCS)!

Also, fair warning, a lot of the characters might/will be extremely OOC because I was trying to go by the How to Train Your Dragon movie but also have the characters in it. So I'm so sorry if all of them are seriously OOC, I didn't mean for it to happen, it kind of just did. Anyway, I hope you can look passed that and enjoy the story.

Thanks for reading!

Prologue

There is no light without darkness. There is no darkness without light. That is the one thing everyone in the village of New Domino knows. They had ever since the explosion that split the world's lands into separate islands and unleashed the worldwide war between humans and the once slumbering dragons.

Yet, one of the first elders of New Domino spoke of a hope that would come in time. A hope that would end the war.

But time went on slowly. As the months turned to years and the years turned to centuries, people began to lose their hope in the foretold peace bringer.

Now, three hundred years after the elder's words, one boy was born who still believe peace was possible. By the time the boy was five, he wanted peace. But with the war so ingrained and the fire burning so large, the people of the world had started to change to killing the dragons.

At a young age, the boy was revealed to be smart and reliable. So it came as no surprise to the boy that when he began to try to convince people to try to end the war themselves, they were confused and pushed him away into isolation.

But when he turned six, his parents were killed by a Monstrous Nightmare in front of his eyes. The villagers thought that would make the boy turn to their ways of killing. But it didn't. It only made the boy want to end the violence that much more.

The boy was quickly taken in by an orphan caretaker named Martha who already had many orphans in her care. But the boy never told anyone in New Domino his gift. Not Martha or any of the orphans. Or even his parents who had died just after discovering his ability.

It was this gift that made the boy strive for peace. And as the boy learned more about the elder's words, he began to believe there was truly one who was to bring peace between humans and dragons.

And the thing he hoped most: That they would come and end the killing and senseless violence before the world was obliterated by war.

Lydia Sherrer: I first read The Speaker almost a decade ago when I first discovered author Sandra Leigh. I loved it then, and I still love it now. It is a simple, easy read, yet deep in meaning and rich in storyline. I do not know what kind of research or prior knowledge Leigh has of First Nation tribes, but sh...

aaron10905: This is undoubtedly one of the best books written on here. I actually unistalled this app until someone told me about this story. I came back not expecting much, just to be drawn into the story and the characters. I would buy this book in real life, as long as another was promised shortly after.

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters. What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gr...
