"Hey! Starfire!" A blue scaled Dragoness whispered to her fellow white dragoness sitting next to her. They both were anthros and the blue one was around 5 feet tall, but she had no wings. She had a set of two bright red ram like horns and had Green eyes. In addition to this, she also was wearing a pair of blue jeans and a blue shirt that was tight around her large breasts, but exposed her belly.
The Dragoness she was talking to had white scales, sapphire blue eyes, and silvery grey horns that bent slightly backwards towards her tail. She was around 6 feet tall and had wings that weren't like typical dragon wings, but were feathered like an angel’s wings. She was also wearing a pair of blue jeans, but she had a black T-shirt that loosely hung around her belly and slightly showed the size and shape of her breasts that were half the size of her blue scaled companion’s.
The white Dragoness named Starfire turned to her friend who called her name, They both were sitting in a history class at the Golden Dragoness’ High School. The classroom held about 35 students of multiple different Dragon species and the two Dragoness were at the back of the class.
"What's up A'rare?" Starfire asked. A'rare smirked and that caused Starfire to raise a eyebrow.
"I heard a rumor going round that you're going to see the Human Museum's newest exhibit, before the public does!" A'rare said, just barely keeping it from going above a whisper and alerting the rest of the class about their chat. Starfire sighed and A'rare gasped.
"It's true?!" She gasped in surprise as her eyes went wide. Starfire rolled her eyes at her as the teacher spoke to the class she was teaching. The teacher was a gold scaled anthro Dragoness of about 8 feet in height and her horns were straight and gold like her body. She had a dress that was made of gold silk that went down to the floor, but stopped just before it actually touched the floor. Her eyes were a rust-red color and her tail had a blade at the tip in the shape of a arrow.
"Alright class! Before we go on our surprise field trip, I'm letting the older brother of the student who got this trip ready for us, tell us where we're going. Mr. Comet!" A grey scaled anthro Dragon stepped out from behind the teacher, and all the class gasped, except Starfire. She just smiled and waved to her brother who waved back. He had grey eyes, grey horns that grew straight out from behind his head, a grey suit, and no wings.
"Thank you, Mrs Gold." He said. "As I believe you all know, we have a new exhibit at the Human Museum. But what you didn't know, is that you all are going to be the first ones to see it...hint, hint." They cheered for a few moments, before they quieted down. "But I have some questions for you students. Do any of you know why the humans are extinct?" He asked.
"There was a war!" A student called out and he nodded.
"Correct! Now, why was there a war?"
"Because the humans and our greatest warriors were allies against an alien species that wanted to wipe out all life on earth."
"Correct. Now, do you all know what the name of the taskforce that was created by both our races was?”
“The Knights of Earth!"
"Correct. And who was their greatest Warrior?"
"The Dragon, Drovak the Spear Dragon!"
"Wrong." Everyone was shocked. "Their greatest was one of their human members”
"A human?.. A human?!" A few students asked in disgust. “How could a human be greater than one of our warriors"
"I'll answer your question with one of mine. Do you know how old he was when he died?" He asked. The students said nothing because they didn't know why it was relevant.
"He...he was barely 18." The teacher, Mrs Gold said as tears were in her eyes. "I'm sorry. I just remember the last time I saw him."
"How do you know that Mrs Gold?" Starfire asked with a confused expression on her face.
"So, you didn't tell them?" A deep male voice asked from the doorway to the left of the classroom. Everyone looked over to see another 8ft anthro Dragon was leaning against the doorframe, but this one was a male. He has black scales, black jeans, a black T-shirt, and blood red eyes, but the biggest thing that made him special, was the massive spear that was strapped to his back.
"Drovak? Drovak, The Spear Dragon?" A student asked aloud. The black Dragon looked at the student who spoke and then looked to Mrs Gold as he walked to her.
"I don't know why you don't tell them at the beginning of the year, Sarah." Drovak said as he kissed her. "But you're my mate and I believe that I'm coming with you and your class to the Museum.” Mrs Gold smiled at that and kissed him back.
"Wait...Mrs Gold, You aren't Sarah the Golden Archer are you?" Starfire asked and Mrs Gold looked at her and nodded. The whole class gasped and were raising their hands to ask her some questions, but she chuckled and held up a hand.
"Now before any more questions let's go to the museum!" Mrs Gold said and everyone got up and left the building. They walked down the street a few blocks and stood before a building with over 75 floors that took up the whole block it was on. Everyone entered it, but none of them noticed the a black object fall from the sky and crash into the top floor. A few seconds later another object came hurtling through the sky on fire and crashed into the same floor...
The insides of the building had a open circular courtyard area in the center that went through the whole building. The sides of it were like a double spiral ramp that went all the way to the top floor.
"Alright class! Find a partner for the assignment." Mrs Gold said and a few seconds later A'rare and Starfire were partners.
"Do you remember what the assignment was?" A'rare asked Starfire who sighed and shook her head in disbelief.
"One of these days A'rare you'll have to pay attention in class, but yes I do know what the assignment is. We are researching our favorite human from history. I'm going to do mine on a human named Eon Rider, but every time I look for him I come up with nothing." Starfire said as Mrs Gold and Drovak stopped behind her when she said that name. They looked at her with surprise and sadness in their eyes.
"How do you know that name Miss Comet?" Mrs Gold asked her. Starfire turned around and looked up at her.
"It came to me in a dream last month and and I can't get it out of my head. I'm hoping to find anything about him here." Starfire said and stopped as tears started to build up in Mrs Gold's eyes.
"You won't find anything on this floor, but you could try the 70th floor since it's dedicated to the human knights. Also use these keywords-!" Mrs Gold was interrupted by a explosion from somewhere higher up in the building.
"What was that!?" A'rare asked and stayed near the larger Dragons. "That sounded like it came from above us in the courtyard." A piece of the ramps smashed into the ground with tremendous force and caused a huge dust cloud. Several Dragons screamed in fear as they saw it.
"Our daughter! Our daughter is out there!" A silver scaled Dragoness and her same color mate were running for the doors to the courtyard, but were stopped by Drovak and Mrs Gold.
"You can't go out there yet, we don't know what's out there y-!" Drovak started to say, but stopped as a voice came from the courtyard.
"Run kid! You have to go get some help! Tell the Golden Archer and The Spear Dragon that I need some help!" The feminine voice said in a deep and mellow tone. Then a small Dragoness came out of the dust and through the door. She has silver scales, but they were covered in a layer of dust. She then ran to her parents and they hugged her tightly.
"She needs help." She said and started to cough from the dust. Drovak knelt before her and rubbed her back gently.
"Who needs help sweetie?" He asked her, but his question was answered as something smashed through the doors and produced a blood curdling roar. It had two legs that were shaped like a birds, a long and thin tail, its head looked like a cobra with fangs that came out a foot from its upper jaw, and it looked like it was made of tar and oil. It was easily the same size as Mrs Gold.
"Oh no...a hunter class Jektis (Jet-is)." Mrs Gold said and everyone backed away from it as she and Drovak approached it, but Starfire just stood there and stared at it. Drovak drew his spear and Mrs Gold held her left hand out as a small ball of golden light grew in the palm and extended its sides out into the shape of a longbow.
"A Jektis...one of the aliens that we fought against?" Starfire asked aloud and she realized it was looking right at her. She gulped and thought about backing away, but something wrapped itself around her waist and pinned both her arms and wings. She looked down to see what it was and screamed, because something made of tar and oil was wrapped around her waist and she was spun around to see the wide open mouth of a Jektis as it went over her head. She struggled to escape its grip as it forced her further into its mouth and her head entered its throat. She started to cry as she remembered the old war stories of what happens when a Dragon was eaten by a alien and knew that once they were inside, they were never found even if it was gutted. She struggled more as it licked her chest and felt her wings enter its mouth. She then felt her hips entered its mouth and her muzzle started to get emptied out into a open chamber.
"Look! Someone's getting eaten!" A young girl's voice yelled from where her head was entering and she then felt a warm and soft hand on her nose as her eyes joined her nose. She gasped as she looked into the face of a human male that was around the age of 18. She noticed he had dark brown hair as was his eyes, he had on a black leather jacket with front unzipped to reveal his bare chest that had a few leather straps that criss crossed his chest. He also had a pair of denim jeans with the knees torn open at the knees and a pair of white shoes. Over his left shoulder was a large bolt-action sniper rifle and on each hip was a high caliber pistol with a submachine gun a bit lower than the pistol, but were easily accessible to him.
"Hello and I'm sorry about this, but we're going to push you out and one of us will follow you to help us push you out." The human said as he backed up and was replaced with a pair of dragons who started to push her back out of the Jektis. Then one of the dragons started to follow her out and she was then dropped out of its mouth and quickly reached into its gaping mouth to help pull it out.
"Starfire! What are you doing...Class help her!" Mrs Gold said as she and Drovak were fighting the other alien. A few seconds later the Dragon was out and was followed by a 6 year old human girl in its tail. All the students gasped and then screamed as another pair of hands gripped the sides of its mouth, but it wasn't coming out...it was starting to stretch out the alien's mouth as it collapsed onto its belly.
"Ahhhhhhhh!" The voice of the human yelled as he started to stand in it and tore the neck of it on both sides like a zipper. "Go! I can hold it, but the rest of you need to get out now!" He yelled and a wave of both humans and Dragons came running out of the alien's body. Mrs Gold and Drovak had finally killed the other jektis and looked at the other in shock for a moment before running over and helping them out. It took about 12 hours, but all 50 thousand humans and 350 thousand Dragons came out. The Dragons then started to regurgitate other humans who were wounded and knocked out to increase the number of humans up to 400 thousand.
"Eon!" Mrs Gold screamed as several black tendrils shot out of the Jektis' throat and went towards the human. He jumped forwards with a spin to have his back to the ground as he drew his rifle and fired causing the alien's head to explode by the high caliber bullet. He landed on his back and rolled to his feet with the gun still trained on it. The Jektis' body started to bubble and more tendrils shot out of the bubbles as Mrs Gold and Drovak stood next to him.
"What's happening Eon? You are suppose to be dead, but I'm not complaining just...pissed off that you took so long." Drovak said and the human laughed.
"Sorry, but they use life as a battery and the rest I don't know since they effectively break the laws of physics. I also know that when they deplete our life they turn us into them." Eon, the human with the guns said. "And I see that you have grown up a bit since the last time we saw each other little sister." He chuckled before glancing up at Mrs Gold and she sighed.
"I missed you big brother." Mrs Gold said and wrapped her tail around his waist.
"Wait a moment, how are you both related and how is a human older than you?!" A male student asked and pointed a finger at Eon.
However, before Mrs Gold could answer the student the bubbling remains of the jektis started to reform and grow in size which caused Eon to sigh before dashing forwards while firing his gun creating holes in the alien's tendrils and body from the bullets.
"You guys get them all out of here, I'll deal with the Queen!" Eon yelled and dodged a tendril as it stabbed into the ground where he was and a trail of blood came from his face before he then ran along the tendril to gain height. Then he fired the rifle with such accuracy that all his bullets hit their marks in the center of the alien's body, causing it to scream in pain as several tendrils shriveled up and collapsed into dust.
"A Queen...damn it, you better kill that thing! Everyone out of the building this Jektis is their Queen and she'll destroy this whole building!" Drovak yelled as he looked at the weakened Jektis Queen while everyone else quickly left the building, which left only 5 people in the building: Drovak, Mrs Gold, Mr Comet, Starfire and Eon. Starfire remained, watching Eon as he was still killing the Queen, but then the Queen screamed again and exploded into black sludge. The sludge drenched Eon as he was jumping off a tendril and he splashed into the sludge.
"Eon!" Mrs Gold yelled and ran over to where he landed before starting to dig him out. "Come on where are you." She was starting to cry until after a few seconds she pulled him out and he was unconscious. Drovak then ran over and wiped some of the sludge off his face to show a line of dark crimson coming from his right eye...
"He didn't completely dodge that tendril...it took his eye and-what the..." Drovak said as the sludge trembled and a bubble grew from it before it popped to reveal a beautiful young woman who was wearing a white wedding dress. She had dark brown hair and the same color eyes.
"Thank you." She said and fell forwards before Drovak caught her. Eon then coughed and spat out some blood before he opened his left eye.
"What...what happened? I feel like I was kicked in the head." Eon said and placed his left hand on his forehead. Mrs Gold hugged him as a few tears trailed down her face.
"I thought I lost you again." Mrs Gold said and hugged him tighter and he started to struggle.
"I...can't...breath...Sarah!" He gasped and she quickly loosened her grip. He then hugged her to him with just his left arm and his right was still in the muck surrounding him.
"Why can't I feel my legs or my arm sis?" Eon asked and Mrs Gold lifted him out of the muck. There was a jagged slash going across his chest that was bleeding heavily.
"We have to get him to a doctor, now!" Mrs Gold yelled and they all ran out of the building as the sludge started to burn like acid and Eon was clutching at where his right eye use to be while grinding his teeth together in pain from the sludge. Starfire was following behind him and saw his rifle and as she went grab it the sludge moved away from her. However she didn't notice the small movement that the sludge made, and she grabbed the gun and gasped as a massive amount of magical power flowed into her from the gun. She felt a bit disoriented from the power, but shook her head to clear it.
"How did he fight with some much power running through him?" She asked aloud before running after her teacher.
"We need an ambulance over here!" Mrs Gold yelled out and kept looking at her brother in fear as he started to get pale. A golden scaled Dragoness in a medical outfit ran over and took him out of Mrs Gold’s arms, before laying him down on his back. The Dragoness then held her hands over him and a light green light washed over him. His wounds slowly stopped bleeding and the sludge faded. He then started to chuckle.
"Thank you Tyrra." Eon said causing the Dragoness that helped him looked at his face in surprise.
"How did you… Eon? How?!" The Dragoness asked and then hugged him as her twin sister Mrs Gold joined in.
"I'm immortal, but I can still get my butt handed to me from a cold." Eon said and they released the hug. Mrs Gold then slapped Eon and said “Don’t do that to us ever again”, The twins then stood up and Eon unsteadily moved onto his feet. Starfire then held out his gun to him and all of them looked at her in surprise...well, all but Eon who was smiling.
"How can you handle this much magic running into your body?" Starfire asked as Eon took the rifle from her with a smirk. He cycled a new round into the rifle and placed it on his back again.
"You have it the wrong way round, I pour fractions of my ever increasing magical power into my weapons." He said and held out his right hand to her. “Eon Rider, Knight of Earth.”
“Starfire Comet, student of the Golden Dragoness' High School under your sister Mrs Gold.” Starfire said and shook his hand before releasing it. “We grew up with stories about the Knights and what element they are aligned with. I know that Mrs Gold's element is air and Drovak’s is earth, but none of us have heard of you or what your element is...what is your alignment?” Eon started to laugh before he drew a pistol and put it under his chin.
“That is probably because i was alive before the war and I'm always a mystery, but I'll show you.” He said before jumping over Starfire and stomping on the head of a Jektis. He then fired the gun into it till the gun was out of bullets. The alien screamed before several tendrils shot through Eon's chest and a final one went through his last remaining eye.
“No!” Mrs Gold screamed and watched as Eon's body burst into flames before turning to ash within a few seconds. Then she shot several dozen arrows into the pained jektis in time it took Eon’s body to turn to ash. The jektis then screamed and went to turn around and run, but stopped as flames sprouted from the ground before it.
“What the heck?” Mrs Gold asked aloud as the flames grew taller and started to darken into a blue flame. Everyone backed away from it, but the alien hissed as a shadowy mass appeared. The mass grew into a shadow like creature before two glowing dark blue orbs appeared in where its head is. The alien then grew a tendril and shot it towards the orbs until the mass tilted its head to the side to dodge the tendril and the flames went out as the shadow changed to reveal…
“That was rude”, Eon said with his eyes still closed and facing Mrs Gold. The tendril was to the left side of Eon's head and he slowly opened his eyes to reveal a pair of dark blue eyes and his hair started to turn white from the scalp to the ends. He then saw the girl in Drovak’s arms. She started to wake up and looked at him.
“Eon?” She asked in a sweet sounding and calm voice that was similar to Eon’s.“Alice?” Eon asked before the tendril moved towards her and he grabbed it. “Never again will you monsters separate us!” He yelled and burst into blue flames that turned the tendril to ash and travelled along it to the Jektis who was starting to be burnt to ash and revealed a female dragon hatchling and as she dropped from it, the flames caught her before bringing her to Eon's arms. the Dragon then opened her eyes and Eon walked over to Alice.
“Mommy?” The hatchling asked her before Eon handed the hatchling to her. “Mommy!” The hatchling buried her muzzle into Alice's chest with tears in both their eyes. Eon smiled before the hatchling looked back at him.
“Thank you uncle Phoenix.” She said and he nodded.“Phoenix? What does she mean by that Eon?” Mrs Gold asked and he looked up at her.“I am the very last Blue Flamed Phoenix.” He said and her eyes went wide in shock.
“You're...you're a Phoenix?” “Yes. I am a Phoenix and this is my younger sister, Alice.” Eon said and put his hand on her head. “Eon stop that, you're embarrassing me!” Alice said and her whole face started to blush.
“Knights! Stay where you are, you are under arrest for the destruction of government property.” Several Dragons in black suits surrounded them and the had several rifles pointed at them. Eon glared at them as did Mrs Gold and Drovak who placed Alice and the hatchling at his feet.
“Why are you pointing those guns at us?” Eon asked them, but Mrs Gold answered him.
“When the war was supposed to be over, the government created a law that says that us Knights are disbanded and if we use our weapons or abilities we will be sent to prison, even if we were using them to help people.” Mrs Gold said and Eon looked at her in disbelief.
“That's what happened to everyone else except for us.” Drovak said and Eon looked at the Dragons pointing there guns at them, before smirking.
“Under the Endangered species act, you can't touch me or my guardians who were the Knights of Earth.” Eon said and they looked at each other.
“He's not an Endangered species is he? He's just a...human… Oh boy.” One of them said and they all lowered their guns. “If you are an Endangered species, what are you? “
“I am both human and a Phoenix. If you want proof I can show you.” Eon said and then nodded before he drew his gun and put it under his chin. He was about to pull the trigger when one of them ran up and pulled it away from him, but the gun still went off and the bullet tore through the dragon's arm. Eon grabbed the arm and a tear went down his face to land on the wound before it started to heal like it never happened.
“See, told you I was a Phoenix.” He said as the dragon and everyone else-but Alice and the hatchling-looked at him in surprise. He then started to fall backwards and Starfire caught him before he hit the ground, but he was unconscious.
“Damn...he mustn't have used his power in a long time.” Alice said and walked over to Starfire with the fast asleep hatchling in her arms.
“What do you mean by that?” Starfire asked as she looked from Eon to her. “His magical ability is also a curse for him as he falls unconscious if he uses too much of his power up” Alice says with a look of worry on her face “ however i am sure that he will pull through this time”.
“I'm not that bad am I?” Eon asked as he opened an eye. “I figured out how to extend my limit to the max, but I was just out of practice.”
“Right, that's what you always say when you fall unconscious from your power, anyway let's get you up on your feet” Alice and Mrs Gold say in unison as they start to help Eon to his feet. “Thanks guys” Eon said as he gets to his feet with a smile on his face.
