Belinda looked down to Xiuhcoatl, Hey uncle Xiuh, youre going to make it you hear me? Youre a hero, and heroes dont die right? He opened his eyes slowly as he woke up and coughed a little, Yeah thats right, hey is it almost here? Belinda looked up to her mother as she nodded to her child, Yeah mom says its almost here, just hang in there okay?
Wheres Rain? Ever since Kane used his medicines on me shes been quiet, he said as he moved his head slowly left and right to find her. Shes with me Xiuh, dont worry about her, shes sleeping, Cynder said softly. He smiled and looked up to the sky to see a castle moving towards them, Hey, its here, someone fly up and get help.
Cynder nodded, Ill go, you just rest here okay? With that the black dragoness flew up to get someone to help Xiuhcoatl before he died. He rolled over to his belly and slowly stood up while grunting, I cant beat him on my own
I need Amber with me next time I meet him
or the world is lost forever
Belinda looked to him with eyes of sorrow, Uncle Xiuh
you can do it, I know you can. Just wait and see, hell be gone thanks to you, now please, rest until youre better. I dont want to lose my uncle. He smiled at her and kissed her cheek, Dont worry, Im not going anywhere yet.
Amberyte and Cynder appeared in front of the two, Xiuh, what happened to you? Anorath
hes stronger, I was no match for him, he responded with grief. She sighed and pressed her paw on his back softly as he nodded and laid down, Im sorry I wasnt here when he attacked, you could have been killed. He doesnt want to kill me yet, he wants me to suffer first, he explained.
Cynder sat beside the waking Rain, Cynder
is dad okay? she asked softly. He will be soon honey, dont worry, Amber is taking care of him. Rain stood up and walked up to Xiuhcoatl, he was covered in a dim yellow aura. His wounds were slowly closing up, seeing him in this condition still, she pressed her head softly against Amberytes chest, Please heal dad, he cant die.
Dont worry Rain, I wont let him die, hes important to a lot of us right? Amberyte asked the young dragoness. All of us, hes important to all of us, she responded with her face still buried in the light dragonesss chest.
Xiuhcoatl looked to Rain and smiled at her, Honey, come here for a moment, I dont want to raise my voice. She turned to him and laid beside him, What is it dad? What would you say
if Amber became your new mom? She looked to him a bit shocked, then up to Amberyte who seemed a bit shocked as well that he asked so freely. Mom
I would like that a lot, she said as she began to cry.
Are you sure? Youre crying, he teased. She smiled at him then stood up and nuzzled Amberyte, Mom, thank you for helping dad.
