phone went off in a dark and silent room. “Hello?” a soft voice of a woman
said when she answered the phone and made the ringing sound stop.
The woman heard someone breathing at the other end of the phone, but that
person didn’t say anything.
The woman tapped with her fingers on the table where the phone was placed
on. “Very funny Nelly.” She said “Next time make sure I don’t have display
on my trusty phone telling me who is calling.
“Awwww come on Amber..” Nelly said. “Where is your Halloween spirit?”
“It’s been long lost ever since I met you.” Amber said, hanging up the
phone. It wasn’t as if she didn’t like Nelly. Not at all, she was a very
good friend. Only not around Halloween. Nelly had this thing where she
wanted to make the ultimate Halloween joke and scare the living hell out
“Who was it?” A lower voice, that of her boyfriend Michael, asked from
“It was Nelly…” Amber said, smiling when she went towards his voice and
found him in the sofa where she had left him. They had been watching a
movie together. She nodded at the movie and asked “What did I miss?”
“Nothing much.. It’s a romantic comedy.. I’m sure you can pick it up
“You don’t like it?”
“Well… I would have liked to see a horror movie..”
“Don’t you start..” Amber said, giving him a little push. “If you don’t
like it, why not make a little snack or something?”
He smiled getting up and walking to the kitchen.
he got back, he brought in somebody. “Look who I found outside?”
He brought in a black caped and hooded person which seemed to not have a
“Great to have around for Halloween parties.” Michael said.
A raspy voice said “Hello” as if it was send through a machine first.
“Hi Nelly.” Amber said, shaking her head.
“Again?” Nelly took off the hood revealing her blond, curly hair and grey
eyes. She looked a little disappointed. “ooh! What are we watching?” she
asked, snuggling next to Amber and making herself very comfy.
“We were watching a silly romantic movie, and I made snacks. Enough for
the 3 of us.” Michael smiled and went to sit on the other side of Amber.
“What? No horror movie?” Nelly asked.
“I’m watching?” Amber said a little annoyed.
Nelly and Michael looked at her and both mumbled sorry. Amber smiled and
said “Why not play a horror game? It’s obvious I’m forcing you two to
watch this movie.”
“It’s a good thing that I brought some games!” Nelly said happily.
had begun a game called “Escape from Terror Mansion” They were well in the
game, laughing their heads off when there was a knock on the door.
“Oh? Any of your plans?” Amber asked a little sarcastically.
“No.. not really.” She said, looking at her cards. She shrugged.
“Well I’ll open it.” Michael said. He went away from the girls and a
little bit later he got back inside.
“There was this guy at the door, asking if he could use our phone. He’s
making a call right now.”
“And you just left him there alone?” Amber asked
“Uhm yeah? He didn’t look like a bad guy. He said his name was Syll or
He looked at both girls and sighed. “Alright. I’ll go eavesdrop on him now.”
“Let’s give him a scare.” Nelly grinned, got up and pulled her hood back
over her head.
“Oh come on Nelly..” But she followed her anyways.
“Stranger.. What are you doing in this house?” The raw metallic voice from
a moment ago went trough the empty hallway.
Amber and Michael were both looking from behind a corner. The man, turned
around slowly, but only his head did.. Making a soft cracking noise with
every bone that broke in his neck. All 3 were horrified.
“Just making a call.” And as he had said that, both Amber and Michael felt
a little gust of wind from behind them. Amber turned around first.. her
eyes grew big from terror as she saw something blue-ish grey. Unwillingly
she took a step backwards and stepped into the hall. “Ah.. the lady of the
house..” The guy making the phone call said. Turning his head and broken
neck towards her. He took a step backwards (his head was pointing towards
her, but the rest of his body was still pointing the other way). Amber,
for whom it was too much, screamed at the top of her lungs. Then she heard
a little chuckle. It had been Nelly. Not understanding Amber turned
towards the headless person that was her friend.
Was it all a joke? “Michael?” She whispered. Michael stood behind her, not
knowing what was happening either.
“Good job S’yll! And of course you too little dragon.” Nelly winked.
“I hope we didn’t scare her too much?”
“Not at all. She’ll get over it. Especially if she sees the eggs.” Nelly
“Eggs? Nelly? Michael?” Amber didn’t know what to do.. When that S’yll
person asked both her and Michael to come to his world she just followed
him. Michael wasn’t in a complete shock as her, but he had more sense then
to leave Amber alone with that lady killer that called himself a finder.
As two more eggs hatched the last demon on the sands,
the pale winged male, looked at the candidates. He seemed to take his time
choosing before he finally lifted up one leg. Pointing he singled out
Michael and said in a low vibrating growl:
”You shall be mine. My name is Pruishian,
remember it well.”
A brown land dragon, his arms and tail seemingly armed enough
to wage a small war on his own, or at least to feature in a Rambo movie.
The other dragon was female, a vibrant leaf green demoness with twin horns
and a vicious tail.
It was the brown dragon who moved first. Making his way through the
candidates he finally stopped beside Gavin. The land demon looked up to
the personal trainer and nodded. This was the person who would be right
for him. Muscles and a brain.
”Markise.” Was all he said, but
it was all that was needed.
The green dragoness was ready to make her move when a scream interrupted
the hatching. The scream echoed and it’s origin took a while to reveal
itself. It’d been Amber who’d screamed. The earthian woman who’d proven to
be very hard to scare had fallen for the oldest trick in the book.
“Something grabbed my ankle…” she panted.
“Surprise!” her friend Nelly smiled.
Behind their backs a dark serpentine form slithered away. Though Evilness
had wanted to disturb this year’s Halloween hatching more, he’d decided
that having a dragonrider owe him would be better. He passed Cyan and felt
her angry gaze pierce his back.
After the slithering nuisance had left, the green dragoness scraped her
throat and then took the step she’d been about to take nearly 5 minutes
“Amber… if you’d like
to get her back,…”
she smirked, with her cold blue eyes burning,
“I know a trick or two that might disturb
her. Just call me Sap’rah.”
Three eggs hatched next. A dark brown demoness with ram
horns and a sharp curved blade on her tail was the first to hatch and the
first to move. Lightning quick she dashed toward the candidates. Barely
avoiding a few of the onlookers she made her way all around the cavern
until she lashed her tail tenderly against Nelly’s legs.
“You are mine.”
“I wouldn’t dare to argue, Shauntey.” She said as she patted the head of
"Michael! Make it stop!" Amber cried out as she was
scared again. All the dragons had grown into adulthood, and Nelly's dragon
Shauntey loved to scare Amber as well. Sap'rah tried her best to convince
Amber to make sure they were scared too. Michael just looked at the two
women and dragons and he and Pruishian tried to not have an apocalypse on
the small island known as Lantessama Isle.
