Night fell and Hero woke up. He looked to see if anyone was there, but alas, there was no one. Then, he got up, and walked to the spot where he met Rei, hoping he would be there. He sat down in the moon’s pale light and saw a purple, dark aura light the sky up. Suddenly, a purple and black dragon stood right in front of Hero. Hero jumped up, drew his sword, and asked, “What do you want?”. The dragon looked away and said, “Wow, you changed.”. Hero took a step back and whispered, “Yui?! Is that you!?”. Then Yui looked at Hero and said, “No. I am a sage of the realm of darkness now. It was because of you that I was exiled! Now you must pay!”. Hero looked in Yui’s eyes as he closed in on him. “No! It wasn’t my fault! I would never tell anyone! All the good times we had together… I would never give them up for money! If you were my friend, you would believe me. Please… understand.” Hero exclaimed. “How pathetic… you don’t understand, do you? I am an Iyallanos… my real father was the same man who murdered your parents!”. Hero dropped his sword and fell to his knees. He started crying uncontrollably and mumbled, “Why Yui?! Why would you betray me?! I thought we were…”. “Don’t ever call me your friend! Because of you, I lost everything! For that you must pay… Face me or die!” shouted Yui. Hero picked up his sword and threw it to his right. Yui looked at Hero’s sword and laughed. “Fine, no weapons then! You just threw away your only chance of beating me!”. Then, Yui grabbed his sword and threw it to his right, just like Hero did. Yui dashed forward and attempted to slash Hero’s neck. Hero transformed his left arm just in time to block Yui’s piercing nails. He used his dragon arm as a shield against Yui. After parrying the attack, Hero accidentally lost his balance. Yui seized this opportunity by attacking Hero’s chest at full speed. He made three deadly slash marks. When Hero caught his balance, he grabbed his chest as blood leaked on the cold grass. Then, Yui drove one of his sharp nails into Hero’s right shoulder, impaling him. Hero gave a quiet cry of pain as he grabbed his shoulder that was bleeding heavily. Yui calmly walked over to his sword and picked it up from the ground. Then, he rose it above his head and shouted, “It’s time to end this! DIE HERO!”. With one swing from the heavenly sword, he unleashed a devastating force of light discharge. The wave of holy light energy hit him, causing to fly back two-hundred feet. This blast should have killed him, but instead he was out cold. Assuming he was dead, Yui transformed into his dragon form and flew away.
The next day, Hero awoke and found himself in Rei’s house. Rei saw him and said, “Good morning! I don’t know what happened to you last night, but I’m guessing it was a fight.”. Hero looked at him and replied, “I just encountered my long, lost friend, who wasn’t very happy to see me.”. Rei laughed and asked, “Did you lose?”. “Yeah.” replied Hero. “I want to become stronger. Please… can you train me?”. Rei stopped what he was doing and answered, “Sure. We’ll start at noon. You’ll need to learn the basics about being a dragon, like how to transform at anytime, before I can teach you about combat.”. “But first, I have to tell you the truth.” said Hero. “There is another world, parallel to this one. This is originally where I came from. The planet is almost the same as it is here. Most of my people are excellent swordsmen. They use ultra sonic sword techniques capable of exceeding the speed of light and faster. When my friend Yui and I were dueling, time was the main element we used in this battle. We could adjust how fast we were moving and how fast it took to slay an opponent. Time is out of balance on my world Aeris, so we could use it to our own needs. I entered this world through a portal with two other people, Yui and Yui’s dad, who is my parents’ murderer. When you enter the portal, for a period of time, you don’t exist. When you transfer to each realm, you must be reborn, in order to live. Surprisingly, when I came through the portal, I was reborn as a dragon. Now, I must avenge my parents… and slay the man who killed them! To do this, I need your help. If you could train me to become a good enough fighter in my dragon form, than surely I could slay my parents’ murderer. Right now, I can only transform my left arm. With your aid, I’m sure I can go full-dragon. Please… help me.”. Rei gave Hero a long, blank, confused stare. Moments later, he started laughing and said, “Of course I’ll help you! I’ll do everything in my power to aid you! Follow me, I know the perfect place to train. It’s away from people, so we can remain focused.”. Then, the two left for the training spot.
“Excellent work Hero! You’ve really come a long way! Tomorrow, we head for the dragon council so you can be appointed as a dragon master.”. Hero looked up at his master Rei and smiled. Finally, he mastered his dragon powers and his sword techniques. The next day, they left for the dragon council, which was on the other side of the island. Hero ran the whole way, while Rei above him. After a few minutes passed by, they reached the dragon council’s building. When they entered, the dragon council members greeted them. One of them and said, “Rei, you are not qualified as a dragon master. The boy should be taught the ways of the dragon by a dragon who has more experience.”. Rei stood up and replied, “I know, but he wanted me to teach him. When I found him half-dead laying on the ground, I felt sorry for him so I treated his wounds at my house. When he woke up, he asked me if I could train him. I gladly took on the task, because I pitied him. If you were in my shoes, what would have you done? Please, test him so he can become a dragon master.”. Then, Chang one of the council members, stood up and responded, “Fine. We’ll see if he’s good enough. Return here in one hour and we will test him.”. Rei thanked the council for their generous decision and left the building with Hero. Then they trained for thirty minutes. After they were done, Rei said to Hero, “Since our training is complete, why don’t you take a look around the island?”. Hero looked at him and replied, “Sure. I’ll be back in thirty minutes.”. After saying this, he changed into his dragon form and flew off. While flying, he looked at himself and remembered all the hard training he accomplished. Then, he looked at himself again and remembered what happened to him in the past. He thought to himself, “I need to find Yui. Maybe he can tell me where his father is.”. As he was flying, he noticed a strange crack on the side of a plateau. He flew down towards it and peeked inside. It was a giant arena suspended over molten lava! Suddenly, Hero started coughing. There was a thick black cloud surrounding him. Hero thought, “What the..”. Then, he fell to the ground, unconscious.
Twenty minutes later, he found himself chained to a wall next to the arena. Suddenly, a black dragon emerged from the lava next to him. The dragon looked at him and asked, “What is your name?”. Hero looked to his right, scoffed, and then replied, “Who are you to ask for my name?”. “Well, white dragon, what are you doing in my lair?” asked the black dragon. “I don’t have to explain myself to the likes of you! You’re wasting my time. Free me, or I will free myself.”. The black dragon laughed and exclaimed, “You don’t know who I am, do you? I am the Dark Dragon, king of all the dragons!”. Hero laughed after hearing this and replied, “Yeah, well, I’m not really a dragon, I’m an Aerian. And by the way, I don’t care who you say you are. Only your fighting skills can truly explain who you are. I am the legendary warrior, but I guess you’ll just have to figure out if that’s true or not. A simple-minded fool like yourself, doesn’t stand a chance against my powers!”. The Dark Dragon roared and said, “We’ll see about that!”. Then, the Dark Dragon’s minions surrounded Hero. There were hundreds of them! The Dark Dragon laughed and asked, “As you were saying?”. Suddenly, blades of light cut Hero’s shackles. He transformed into his human form and took out his sword. With one swing, his sword expelled a giant blade of white energy discharge, which destroyed them. Then, the Dark Dragon shot a gigantic fireball at Hero. Hero faced the blast as it neared him. He then took his sword again and turned the blade so the sharp side was facing the blast. As soon as it hit his sword, the fireball parted and flew past Hero. Then, he ran up to the Dark Dragon and made a tiny slash mark across him chest. The Dark Dragon fell backwards into the lava still alive, but paralyzed. Hero transformed and flew back to the council building. Chang looked at Rei and said, “Your student is ten minutes late. He should hurry if he expects to be tested.”. Just then, Hero landed next to them and said, “Sorry I’m late. I got a little tied up.”. Chang looked at him with evil eyes and then explained, “You have three tests. To pass, you must successfully complete two of them. Your tests are: judgment in fire, wisdom in battle, and courage in flight. Are you ready?”. Then Hero replied, “Ok. I’m ready.”. Hero passed the first test with flying colors. He transformed into both his dragon and human form, which gave him bonus points. In the next test, he dueled a fellow dragon. He defeated him easily in his dragon form, and moved onto the next test. Chang told him, “For this test, you must choose an opponent to race against.”. Hero looked around at the competition. By choosing randomly, he chose a boy with spiky green and black hair. The boy pointed at himself and questioned, “Me?!”. Hero nodded and the boy walked over to him and said, “Wazzup! The Am-Drag’s gonna show you whose king of the course!”. Hero took his place next to the starting line and said, “Don’t lose.”. The boy looked shocked and responded, “Y.. You’re the one whose gonna lose!”. Hero watched him take his place next to the starting line and asked, “What’s your name?”. The boy looked at him and replied, “My name is Jake and I’m the American Dragon.”. “I’m Hero and I’m the Aerian Dragon.”. Jake looked at him puzzled and then regained his focus. Then, Chang shouted, “You may begin!”. Jake and Hero both took off at a set, equal speed. Halfway through the course, Hero increased his speed dramatically and was now twice as fast as Jake! Before the finish line, Jake gave it his all and past Hero. Jake finished in first place! He looked at Hero and asked, “So, how do you like me now?”. Then, he turned towards the crowd and shouted, “Am-Drag’s representin’! Holler!”. As everyone cheered, Andam announced, Well, we officially have a new dragon master here before us. Give a round of applause to Hero for his long, hard work!”. Then, everyone clapped and cheered. That night, Hero thought to himself, Now all I have to do is locate Yui. Hopefully, he’ll explain everything that’s happened to me.”. After thinking this, Hero fell asleep in Rei’s house. Tomorrow would be a new day for the new dragon master.
When Hero woke up the next day, he noticed that Rei wasn’t in his house. He looked all around his house and then checked in the secret training spot where Rei trained Hero. He found a note that was on the ground and read it. It read, “Dear Hero, when you read this, you’ll already know that I left you. Goodbyes… are not in need at this moment. Instead, because I am now being tested just like you were, to become a dragon master. Continue your journey… and destroy the man you hate the most. You will be in my prayers. Good luck!”. Hero put this letter in his pocket and walked out of the secret training grounds. The sun finally stopped rising, and a new day was made for Hero. Then, he set off, walking towards the mountain range. When he reached it, he spotted a path that lead up to a giant bell tower. Hero had a weird feeling in his stomach as he gazed up at it. He somehow knew this was where Yui was. He ran all the way there. When he reached it, he opened the huge, red, steel-plated doors and walked inside. The inside of the bell tower was gigantic. The floor was covered in crimson red carpet and the walls were made of hard, gray stones. As Hero gazed up towards the ceiling, he noticed that there were staircases that led from the floor to the upper room, which contained the giant bell. Also, there were multiple platforms on the walls leading to the ceiling. In the middle of the floor, was a diamond shaped seal with four sections of diamonds in it. Inside of each section, there was another diamond. Including the overall diamond, there were nine. Hero then looked behind him and saw a huge, beautiful stain-glass window. Painted on it, was his sword. On the right side of the sword, the glass was painted dark purple and on the left side of the sword, it was painted bright yellow. “You never give up, do you?”. Hero instantly looked up at one of the upper platforms. Yui stood on one of them in his dragon form with his arms crossed. He then shook his head and said, “You should have remained in hiding instead of coming here. Hero looked at him and asked, “Why are you trying to kill me?!”. Yui looked at Hero and replied, “My fathers orders were to slay you.”. Hero let go of his clenched fist as he swung it to his right and asked, “Why does he want me dead? I didn’t do any thing to him!”. “No, it was your ancestors fault, for forging that wretched sword Soul Reaper! My family was banished and lived in torment because of that sword! It is the ultimate sword, because of the choices the chosen master makes. It has two sides, good and evil. If you make a decision, it affects the sword’s growth. You basically control the world with that sword. The sword shouldn’t have chosen you… my father should be the wielder of it! Then, the world would be at peace… all the nations would be the same. Our nation won’t be banished and everyone will live peacefully. This is what I, and my father wish for… and you won’t get in our way! Prepare to die, Hero!”. Then, Yui flew down and kicked Hero in the stomach, which caused him to fly back and hit a wall. “Why does this always happen to me?!” he asked. Yui took out his sword, but then a fireball knocked it out of his hand. Yui looked around and shouted, “What?!”. “Hey, why don’t you pick on a dragon your own skill level?”. Hero looked up and saw a red dragon standing on one of the upper platforms. “Stay out of this, the boy is mine!” Yui shouted. The red dragon flew down, crossed his arms and said, “Wow, I didn’t know he was in your possession.”. Yui turned and looked at him and said, “You’re all talk. Your smart-mouthing will only kill you.”. The red dragon scoffed and said, “We’ll see if that’s true.”. Then, he turned and looked at Hero and asked, “Are you alright?”. Hero got up off the ground and replied, “Yeah, but you don’t know what you just got yourself into.”. “My name is Drake. Trust me, I’ve fought stronger foes than this guy.”. Yui looked at him and yelled, “Fight me, if you think your so tough!”. “Fine by me.” said Drake. Yui and Drake both flew forward and grabbed each other’s hands. While holding their position, Drake said, “So how does it fell to fight against the legendary Dragon-X?”. Yui looked at him and replied, “You’ll be dead soon, so I don’t care who you are!”. Then, Drake whacked Yui in the chest with his tail and then kicked Yui’s legs. This knocked him off balance, so Drake tripped him with his tail. Yui fell on the floor and Drake grabbed him by the neck and held him down. He laughed and exclaimed, “Your not that strong! That was easy!”. Yui chuckled and replied, “You forgot one thing, I too have a tail!”. Yui grabbed drake by the neck and started choking him. Hero quickly grabbed his sword and threw it at Yui. The sword flew perfectly straight and cut Yui’s left hand that was holding onto Drake’s right arm. Yui released Drake and grabbed his bleeding hand. Drake quickly ran over to Hero’s sword and threw it to him while he dashed over and caught it. He held his sword at an upward position and stopped running. Drake shot a fireball at Hero’s sword which charged it up. The sword now emitted a piercing red flame. Hero then ran over to Yui and jumped up in the air. It was then that Yui realized what they were doing, but it was too late to react. Hero swung his sword down for a powerful vertical slash. As soon as his sword hit the ground next to Yui, the ground exploded and sent a powerful wave of fire straight towards him. Yui was sent flying from the earth-shattering blast. Before he hit the ground, he transformed and flew away. Hero and Drake looked at each other and smiled. Then, Drake said, “I have to go. Your master, Rei, instructed me where to find you. He is now a dragon master. Well anyways, I have some unfinished business to take care of, so see ya!”. After saying this, he took off flying. Hero smiled and waved goodbye. They both knew this wouldn’t be the last time they’d see each other.
