Draconian Tides Pt.10
I wasn't sure how long I was out, only that when I woke up, I wasn't sure where I was. I was lying on a couch and there were several others crowded around me. The one who had saved us, I remembered that he had been called Neil, along with a a few others, one was the same color as Corbyn without the runes, one was white and one was red like Joe. I wanted to speak out, but the pain was still there and my body was still trying to wake up. I was surprised when another white dragon came walking up, though he looked like he was made of clouds. He didn't have a face from what I could tell, which made it tough to tell what he was thinking. We stared at each other for a bit before he held out his hand and said "hey, my names Tyler" I was surprised that he could talk, there was no mouth on his face. I lifted my hand to shake his, but instead it passed through, it felt cold and wet. I pulled my hand back and looked around, Everyone else was sprawled out on beds around me. I said "hi, my names Aaron...where exactly am I?"
He said "You are at our good friend Neil's house. He was kind enough to teleport you all here, but for reasons unknown… What were you doing to get that tired when Neil got you here?".
I sighed, preparing myself and said "well, it's a bit of a long story"
I continued "we began having this strange dream every night, we would wake up at midnight exactly and there would be a strange storm outside. We would go out into these storms and wait there, when the sky flashed, we would go back in".
The red one said "we know the dream, we had it too, you then changed to dragons at.."
"3:30 exact" I finished for him.
The cloud dragon shifted back to his normal form, I was shocked to see that he was instead a water dragon just like Will, he then asked "so, when did you change?"
"The night I changed was about a day after I heard about these other dragons in Rhode Island, I'm guessing that's you guys" I said.
"yep, what about your friends?" he said, pointing to everyone.
"they changed every day after mine, ending with Joe and Isaac" I said, pointing to each of them.
"what do you mean Joe and Isaac?" the other blue one asked.
"they changed at the same time, it was weird but I'm sure it happened to you too, right?" I asked, but the looks they gave me said that it was the first time they had heard of it.
"the only time many changed at once was when everyone became dragons the day after we changed" Neil said.
"please continue" Tyler said.
"can I please know your names first?, I'm getting confused" I said.
"my names John" the red one said.
"mines Dominic" the other blue one said.
"and I'm Andrew" the white one said.
"I'm Neil, the one you met earlier" Neil said.
"what are your elements?" I asked.
"well, John is fire, Dominic is Ice and Andrew is Air, While Neil is psychic, which is why he was able to get you here" Tyler said.
"Wait, Dominic is ice, he doesn't look like Corbyn at all?" I asked confused.
"we think that the change is different for everyone, if we all looked the same then it would get confusing, so I think that even if we share elements we don't share forms" Neil said.
"makes sense, oh, right, I was telling the story" I said, facepalming myself.
I continued the story "anyway, after we all changed, we had the dream again, however instead the storm was red with black lightning hitting the ground, I turned to go back to bed when I saw a shadow behind me,it said "you won't stop me" I said with as deep a voice as possible. Then continued "then the dream ended. The day after, my friends Will and Roger went missing, they're dragons too, but they vanished without a trace. We were practicing our abilities when this other dragon appeared".
"Argash" Tyler said.
"how do you guys know him?" I asked.
"he tried to pose as the mayor and take away rights for dragons like us, we managed to beat him and he got carted off, he escaped surprisingly quick, only a day after" Tyler said.
I could tell there was more to it from the way he acted, but decided not to pry in. I continued "Isaac slowed him down with his abilities and we took off trying to get away, I managed to stop him before he got to us by letting loose a lightning storm, then Neil appeared and teleported us here".
"so, why are you so tired?" Andrew asked.
"well, we flew as fast as we could, something that is pretty tough to do, and for me, along with that, I had used up all the charge I had in my body to create the storm that slowed him down" I said. I perked up at the mention of energy and asked "that reminds me, you guys have an electric plug-in area or a generator I can use".
I could tell they were surprised by this question and I felt it was kinda fitting for the surprise Tyler had given me. Neil pointed and said "over there" I got up and shakily walked over and put my tail in to the socket, letting the energy flow in to me, I managed to hold control of myself to prevent another EMP and when I finished collecting the energy, I felt a million times better and I was glowing again, I noticed that my scales were more yellow than they had been along with the blue glow, apparently my body acted as a living wattage meter, my scales a bit more vivid if I had energy in me. I looked around to see that the others were beginning to wake up as well. I turned to Tyler and said "when the others are ready, we're going back to save our friends".
"are you nuts, you barely got away from him the first time from what I heard, what makes you think you could take him now" Tyler said. As much as it pained me to admit, he was right, we were nowhere near ready to face him.
I looked up and asked "do you think we could get some training from you guys?"
They turned to each other and began to discuss it, while they were doing that, I explained everything and introduced the others to Joe, Corbyn and Isaac. After a few minutes, they turned to us and said "okay, we'll do it, and when you go to face him, we'll be there to help". I smiled and said "thank you" and they led us outside to begin the training.
