Chapter 2: Aftermath
While the situation on Earth was grim we need to leave for a moment our planet and look towards another world in which another evil destroyed it but a good soul actually two stopped it and helped the world to reborn from is ashes. The two rightful souls where two dragons at a frail age did what others older and wiser could not: Defeat the darkness of the world and the darkness inside all of us. Now after all of this they could relax for a while they deserve it, but hidden from their sight lies a destiny that will shape there world. The two dragons were trying to catch each other in an endless game of hide and seek:
"Come on Spyro." Said the black dragoness smiling. "Am I to fast for you?"
"Oh no Cynder when I catch you, you are done." Said the purple dragon smiling.
" 'If' you catch me. She said teasingly and flew as fast as she could and Spyro right after her. They ran through the air for a while, nut Spyro was a little upset: 'Oh dam she is to fast for me I am not going to catch her'. After some running and thinking him gat an idea: 'Maybe I can use time control just a little'. He then concentrated and started to use the DragonTime. For Spyro the world started to move very slow leaves of the trees were almost stand still and the clouds as well, but nevertheless he concentrated at his objective and that was getting his hands on Cynder. Looking back Cynder did not see the purple one chasing him it did not take long when she felt peered down by something. She fell for a few meters, but regained shortly her equilibrium, then she realized what was going on someone was holding her by the wings. When she turned she saw that it was no one else than Spyro holding her and also smiling:
"Goth cha!" He said happy.
"Hey you used your ability. That is not fair." She responded angrily.
"You did not say anything about using abilities so..." He trailed of.
"Still that not means that you can win so easily." She said.
"Ok I am sorry, please forgive me."
"Of course I forgive Spyro." She said happy. "After all you are the one who saved me and the one to care about me and the only friend I had." Saying this, the purple one smiled and hugged her.
"I am always here for you as a friend, Cynder." He said slowly. The hugging made Cynder blush, after all she liked him more then he knew.
"So now what are going to do?" She asked.
"I do not know we could head back to Warfang." He proposed.
"Ok Spyro, but only a slight problem."
"In which direction is Warfang?" That question made the dragon rub his head in not knowing the answer to that question.
"I don't know everything seems out of is usual place." He said.
"After we defeated Malefor. We used one of the lava tubes to get out of the core." She explained.
"I know, but remember that the world was falling apart and I put it back together some things may have changed."
"I understand. She said looking at the sky. But it is getting dark we should find a place where we could sleep." She recommended and they both flew away.
They flown for a while and the sun was starting to set dawn behind the mountains.
"Is so beautiful. Cynder said with a smile on her face."
"I know, but not as beautiful as you are. He said happily. That small word made Cynder to blush, realizing it she asked him.
"Do you mean it?" She asked.
"Of course I am. You believe I didn't hear you back there at the earth's core?" Now Cynder realized what he said and was baffled but nevertheless she asked.
"You heard me?"
"Yes I heard you. Despite I was so determined out there you did not leave you stayed there when the end could have come to both of us."
"I could not have left you there Spyro." She said in a sad tone. Right in that moment Spyro hugged her and said.
"I now you couldn't, but next time do as I say, for once. Please."
"I will Spyro, I will." And she hugged back.
"Come on we should find some shelter. I think is going to rain as well." He said to her.
"Ok let's go." She said and they started flying again. And they did so for a few minutes until Cynder spotted something.
"Look! She said and with that Spyro turned.
"What is it?
"That waterfall surely has some cave hidden from our sight." She said while pointing at the high waterfall.
"Well if it is true our shelter problem is resolved." He said the two dragons dived and went straight to the waterfall. When they landed they looked for an entrance and found one. Spyro entered the cave; Cynder stayed behind and felt that tiny droplets of rain were starting to fall. Right then Spyro came out of the cave.
"Well the cave is big enough lets get inside."
"We founded just in time is already started to rain." The two dragons entered the cave and made themselves comfortable on some moss which was growing on the floor of the cave. The lied close to each other, Spyro put one of his wings on her. Cynder liked the feeling that she was so close to him and seeing how he hold her tight started to ask him:
"Do you truly love me?" Spyro asked himself about that question, but nevertheless responded.
"Of course I love you why did you ask me that?"
"I just needed to know Spyro." She said a little sad. "After all I have done how much I put you trough."
"Cynder nobody blames you. After all, few can escape the darkness as you did." He said and started to nuzzle her.
"I know, but some things can never be changed, some wounds may never heal."
"Is ok I am here and you will get past them I promise."
"Thank you Spyro." After she said that the two shared a kiss witch lasted for a few seconds.
"I love you my purple passion."
"I love you two my black wonder." The two kissed for good night and went to sleep. Outside the cave thunder, lightning and rain started heavy, but nothing stopped the dragons to have a good sleep.
