On a hot day in the Electric Kingdom, Monsoon was practicing his fighting skills with his sister, Tornado. He leaped upon her, and she slid easily between his claws. It was easy for her to slide under enemies, as she was only 4 years old. But that didn't mean she didn't train. StormWings began training at 8 months old. They were always prepared to fight. Eventually, after a few minutes, he had her pinned. "Still not good enough." He growled, unimpressed. "If you are to join the queen's army when you're twelve, you'd best toughen up." And with that, he stalked away. Monsoon glanced around, and noticed their parents, Fury and Roar, walk outside of their home. "Training?" His father, Roar, asked. "Yes. But I need to fight harder dragons. Tornado is too young and too weak." Fury frowned. "Just because you're in the queen's army does not mean you must disrespect your sister. She's only 4 years old." She told him sternly. "So?" He replied with a shrug. "We begin training as soon as we can breathe lightning." Monsoon began to walk away, but Roar placed a talon on his shoulder. "Wait. We have news." Monsoon turned around with a huff, and sparks flew out of his nostrils. "What is it?" He growled. "You are starting school, today. at Lizard River Academy." Fury replied.
Death frowned, unimpressed of this dragon's speed. All dragons are slow, except for DarkWings... SunWings are fast, but not fast enough. The other day, he had remembered his invitation to Lizard River Academy. He was confuse, since he thought they were all against eachother.
Pheonix then asked, "What do you want?" In a bratty attitude. She immediately regreted it once she'd said it. Red batted her with his tail. "The Queen sent an invitation to all the dragonets," He growled in a low, harsh tone. "Lizard River Academy? Sounds dumb," He added. "I don't know if any SoulWings are coming, but I sure hope not!" Pheonix yipped fearfully, quivering.
Venom tossed a mango between his talons, before Rainbow, a fellow one of his tribe slithered up to him. "Venom! Are you coming, too?" She beamed excitedly. "No," He replied with a grunt. "I'll give you all my fruit if you come!" She pleaded. With a sigh, he nodded without turning his head in even the slightest. "Fine. But you have to stop annoying me all the time," He added.
Monsoon glared at them. "You can't make me go." He growled, flicking his tail impatiently. "Yes, we can." Roar replied. "We're you're parents." Monsoon hissed at them. "Fine. But I won't like it."
"You don't have to like it." Fury said.
He sighed. "I hate you guys so much right now." He mumbled, low enough so they couldn't hear him.
Ember batted Ash on the head and he fell to the ground giggling.
"Oh. come on, Ember, don't be such a grump!" he said to his sister. "Remember, we're going to the Lizard River Academy!"
"What?" Ember growled. "Mother is letting you go?"
Ash nodded, showing his newly grown teeth. "Yup! And Flame, too!"
Ember held back a roar, her eyes glowing. She swallowed the flames licking at her throat and snorted. "I'm going to speak to Mother about this," she said stiffly, and left Ash on the floor to speak with Garnet.
Juniper knew deep in her heart that her tribe was gone. How could Mother and Father forget me? she thought. I'm special...aren't I? Then she straightened up. "Mother is the queen of the MossWings. Obviously she was too busy taking care of the tribe. She didn't forget me!" She jumped up off of the ground, flapping her wings eagerly.
"I know!" she said out loud excitedly. "I'll go to the Lizard River Academy! I was invited, so once I get there, someone can get a message to Lichen!" And with that, she flew out of the cave.
He began to fly to the academy, which was on an island, east of the (uh is this what it's called?) Moss Kingdom. It was located near a river on the large island (around the size of Australia but still considered an island). He sat just outside of it, noticing that no one was there yet. He decided to practice lightning-breathing while he waited. He shot an electric ball of lightning at a tree, sending it crashing to the ground.
"The SunWings are coming into are territory specifically to loook for CloudWings or MistWings to kill... Instead, it would be us they'd kill," She retorted. "But the queen, my mother, as you all know, has stated we will leave to find a new territory tomorrow. Yesterday, she has also asked me to send a message to al. the dragonets that it's safe to go to Lizard River Academy." After her report and all the gasps of shock coming from the SoulWings, her mother had called her once again. Within seconds, she was once again by her queen's side. "I want you to go with the dragonets to Lizard River Academy... It's too risky for them to go alone. I trust you to protect them."
"But- My place is here to help the war, and to protect you! My loyalty is to my tribe, life or death." Light looked into her mother's eyes. "You'll prove your loyalty even more if you go, Light. Please," She added. Without complaint, Light nodded, then left, feeling the sharp pain in her chest of heartbreak.
Death did not want to go, but of course his older brother had forced him to go while he helped fight in the war. Ugh... Why can't I take his place!?
Phoenix then sat up, with a gleam in her eye. "I'm going, and it's not dumb!" Almost immediately, she burst out of her den and into the sky towards the academy.
Monsoon noticed a few dragons flying towards the academy almost immediately. He growled lowly to himself. Monsoon hoped he wouldn't be grouped with any of them. Apparently there were these things called "Winglets." He had memorized them from the information that was passed out. Oak Winglet, Spruce Winglet, Acacia Winglet, Birch Winglet, Willow Winglet, and Maple Winglet. He was in Maple Winglet, apparently. He knocked over a few more trees with balls of electricity.
