SKYLAR DIDN'T know where she was. the last thing that she remembered was a waterfall...and wave- her best friend. they were falling down into the foaming water below. now she was just in a damp, wet and dark cave. skylar looked outside. it was night and three half moons where watching her like falcons- not that the moons have eyes...or do they? her first thought was fly, get away from here, find your home but when she looked, her wing was broken. what do i do now? she wondered do i call for help? or do i stay the night? staying the night sounds good. she walked deeper into the cave, and found a place to rest.
When her Head hit the rock she entered the realm of dreams. she was watching from the sky, her wing mended. wave was below, trapped in a circle of green liquid. her heart skipped a beat. was that greek fire? she tried to run, or even yell to him, but she was not actually there. the greek fire threatened to get closer to him. skylar couldn't stand it. she willed herself to wake up... but she couln't. now there where dark figures approaching wave. are those nightwings? the dragons walked to the now-forming ball of green around her friend. they can walk through fire?!? skylar panicked. this is bad, really bad. the three figures emerged out of the fire, holding wave in there talons, by the arms. the middle figure looked her in they eyes, and caused her to start to sweat. she can't see me, can she? but that thought vanished when the figure lunged at her, fangs out. she woke up in a panic.
Skylar got out of bed and shivered. I NEED TO GET TO WAVE! HE COULD BE IN TROUBLE! She examined her wing. it was healing fast. finally she walked up to the mouth of the cave and poked her head out. the sun glimmered in the distance. she spotted a nice rock reaching out of the ocean, and it was in the sun. if only i could fly she thought aloud with a sigh maybe i could? she flapped her wings and took off in a wobbly glide,and half fell, half landed on the rock. well, she said i wont be leaving soon. she got into a sitting position, and stretched her wings out on the rock. around 20 minuets later, she spotted a strand of seaweed floating by. she pulled it out, along with a plank of wood. she tied it to her wing, around the plank. now it feels better she said with hope building in her voice and it will heal faster!
She crawled back into the cave and found an old map in the corner, along with her satchel. she studied the map with interest before remembering that she had a just-in-case supply of healing herbs. she walked over to it and took out some rosmary, and moon flower leaves, and found a stone deeper in the cave. she used some water from the ocean and layed down the leaves in the puddle... it took the rest of the day to crush the leaves into a minty-colored paste, but when it was done skylar didn't hesitate to rub it on to her wounded wing. first she unraveled the weed and wood, and wet her wing. she winced as the water settled into her cut. after she had rubbed the ointment on, she went deeper into the cave to where she slept the previous night. she shivered when she lay on the cold rock. skylar was anxious to get to sleep after last nights vivid dream. eventually she let herself drift off into another restless sleep...
I WAS IN A MOUNTAIN. no seriously, i was. i was surrounded with cave walls. the were stone bars replacing one of the sides. it was only much later when i realized where i was, and that my past was reality. i was a prisoner, in a cell. i looked through the bars to another cell. it was captivated by a sandwing. he was male, and old. he looked as if he has been down here for a long time. that dropped my hopes a litle. what if i never got out? the sandwing looked up and smiled a familiar, friendly smile. where had i seen that smile before? my thoughts were flipped back to my past. skylar. oh no, oh no, oh no! skylar wont know where i am. what if shes already gone! did i manage to save her from the waterfall? what if i didnt! oh, how could i! fortunately, my panic was broken by the sandwing. he spoke in an old, crusty, unhealthy voice. "hello, my boy. what got you in such a mess? whats your name?" he asked, making me shiver.
"im wave, and i have no idea how i got here, apart from the..." i hesitated. "the kidnapping" i finished, after some struggle.
"my name is sandstone" he replied "and its nice to meet you"
"you should get some sleep, preserve your energy, they don't feed us regularly" sandstone insisted.
i tried to take his advice, but it took a long time to drift off. there was something about him that reminded me of skylar. "thats it" i thought "he's smile is the exact same."
i found myself asleep, dreaming. it showed a birds eye view of me and Skylar falling down the waterfall. we were flying over it, and we were chatting. suddenly a sharp rock hit Skylar's wing, and she fell. i dived after her, but i was not a skywing, and i was only fast in the water. she hit the water, and i did the same, only a few seconds after. i swam as fast as i could, to the bottom of the river, where she was resting. she was under the pressure of the waterfall. without thinking, i swam glided towards her. towards danger. i scooped her out, and rested her on a plank of wood. i set her down the river, her eyes still motionless, and dark, hoping she was still alive. i floundered to the shore.
my dream shifted, and i could see Skylar in a peaceful lake, with a cave sticking out of the water. i recognized the place. it was somewhere far past the rainforest's kingdom, somewhere out of phyria's disturbing currents. she was still on the wood, but drenched in water. she still hadn't moved. and her eyes were still not blinking. she was washed up in the cave, strangely with her backpack still resting on her shoulders. a few minutes later she moved, waking up. a wave of relief washed over me, drenching me with calmness. she stood up and tried to raise her wing, and i saw that the rock that had hit her, was embedded in her skin. she didn't notice it, or me, watching from far out. i recognized the crystal from one of my history lesons. the όνειρο, crystal of dreams. i woke up. sitting upright, with a little rainwing scooting around outside my cell. she was holding a tray of food.
i will keep updating this, and i hope you have enjoided it so far.
