Izzy was wondering around the little dark town of Soaring Skies, while walking around she saw the Blacksmith smelting a sword for the Lord. The market was shutting down and the merchants were putting up their goods so they could go watch the latest dragon Fight. The red dirt path was starting to twirl around in a circle with the wind starting to blow. The children were running around chasing one another trying to mimic the dragon's roar. She heard the dragons roaring at one another and flapping inside the cage where the fight was being held.
Izzy shook her head in disgust. Being a wizard as well as a protector of the Sacred Wing Mountain, she hated the hunters. For the first time while on watch two days ago she heard the roaring and snarling of her dragon trying to be captured. Coral, her dragon was flying above her when one of the Hunter's Astrua threw a spear up towards Coral. Astrua took another spear out of her pack that was strapped across her back and threw it up once again not landing where she wanted it too.
When Astrua ran closer, she wasn't focusing on the Dragon's Ryder that was beneath the Dragon she was trying to capture for her Master.
"Coral fly higher up in the air." Izzy yelled.
Izzy ran towards the Hunter and pushed her down before she could actually launch her next spear.
Astrua and Izzy rolled on the ground tussling trying to either punch or hit one another. Soon Astrua was on top and got a dagger out of her belt that Izzy didn't noticed at first. Astrua quickly scraped Izzy across her cheek but soon Izzy whistled for Coral.
"You just messed up." Astrua said menacingly then spit on Izzy's face.
Coral came overhead and roared with flames coming out of her mouth. Coral's flames were not normal red the flames were in between light blue and midnight blue flames. The flames singed the Hunter's curly mess of brownish-red hair. As soon as Astrua starting screaming other Hunter's dropped out of the tops of the tree's with blades drawn charging to attack Coral.
Izzy started to stand but then began to fall because she was so dizzy. Izzy hadn't felt this way when the dagger actually cut her, so she suspected the dagger had a spell that drained her strength and made her stumble, her eye sight kept going in and out also. She could not walk to escape from the Hunter's charging her way.
Coral's thoughts seeped into Izzy's mind as Izzy stumbled her way around trying to find Coral to escape.
Izzy, keep running straight towards me. I just unfurled my wing for you to walk on. I'm directly in front of you, keep walking forwards, now step up easily. I've created a shield of fire around us to keep them away long enough to escape.
As Izzy got on Coral, she started to lean on her for so much support because she was loosing so much more blood then a normal wound to the face would cause. She began to fall in and out of consciousness. Coral growled when she couldn't sense the thoughts of Izzy. She then flew with such speed that the Hunter's would never be able to catch them even if they went several different ways.
Coral roared loudly to alert her brother and other sister whom the dragon seen close by. Izzy and Coral were so far ahead the Hunter's wouldn't be able to find them. Her brother Fredrick and other sister Katherine were on the horses and they galloped fast towards the hut because they sensed something was wrong with the way Coral bellowed. Coral was slowing her speed and getting closer to the ground to land near the tall grass on the other side of the hut on the top of one of the rolling hills they all lived on.
As Coral landed in the tall grass she turned her head to peak at her companion, Coral felt herself wanting to drift off as well. Izzy started moaning because the pain she was in, she had already passed out as Fredrick jumped off his horse and ran over to them in a panic, wondering what had happened to his younger sister.
When Fredrick got to Coral he saw Izzy breathing and also noticed the gash on Izzy's face. As he was checking the gash he noticed all the blood over Coral's back from Izzy's wound. That's when Fredrick called Katherine over to help pull Izzy off Coral's back. Izzy was real pale from loosing so much blood and was not responding but she was breathing.
Fredrick patted the dragon on her neck and said "Thanks, you did a good job, Coral.", his hands were thick and started to form callouses from working in the fields with Katherine since their parents died last year from the Hunter's getting too close their home.
The hunter Beatrice and Bruce plus four others rode up on the mountain looking for the three Rare dragon's that were supposed to reside on the mountain. Lucy and George hid up in the tree tops near there home and threw the knives and spears towards the Hunter's but only ended up loosing the fight and they burnt down the house to make it look like an accident, luckily the the children were in the underground bunker to hide in whenever their parents knew there was danger.
Fredrick was two years older than Izzy and his even younger sister Katherine. He was starting to grow a little beard that Izzy called peach fuzz, Fredrick did not like that, he got mad every time she said his beard was peach fuzz. Fredrick is a slim but muscular being that he tended the fields and was training to be a dragon protector, he just turned 18.
Katherine went on the other side of Coral and checked Coral for any battle wounds. Fredrick lifted Izzy up and over her back like a sack of flour to carry Izzy to be treated. Katherine had just turned 14 and found her power at the age of 10. Katherine was a Healer and just became a new Protector of the Mountain because of her parents recent loss.
Katherine soon followed her brother as did Coral, Coral couldn't fit inside but did look inside by laying her head down at the door way. Inquisitive about Izzy's condition and what was being done to her face.
"Katherine do you think you can heal it?" Fredrick said, washing out the wound he found inside the deep cut on her cheek.
"I'm not sure but I can surely try." Katherine said.
Katherine whispered some magical words that could not be understood and a green light came from the palm of her hand and when it touched Izzy's skin it started to come together but it left a scar because of the spell on the blade. The now healed scar went from her left side of her jaw to almost her lip. Katherine was wore out from using so much magic that she couldn't stand any longer. Fredrick sat in a chair nearby on guard, just in case of an attack. Coral stayed curled up but kept a watchful eye out on the surrounding area, and Izzy slept.
