Teriney had turned himself into a dragon. He towered over
tree tops and villages. The flames around his body dissolved.
There flying in the air was a tall red, white and green dragons.
Two sharp fangs stuck out from his mouth. The stripes on it's
back was white, his feet and plated belly was red. He had to
four long sharp alicorn horns with five pointed spikes on his
head. Two small spikes on his jew and long fins on his neck.
From his shoulder to half way past his tail were spikes. At the
end of his tail were four sharp spikes. His large leathery green
wings flapping .
"Then I will destroy this valley and the castle!" Teriney
roared. His voice echoed through the valley. Teriney opened his
mouth and began burning the trees and homes.
"Nooo!" Raindrop shouted, tears began to fill her eyes
and leak down her cheeks.
"Blizzard go and stop the fire, try to keep him busy while
I think of something," Stardust told him.
Blizzard turned into a cluster of snowflakes and flew from the
castle to the fire that was burning the trees and near by homes.
"Dad, I can go..." Luna began to say.
"No," Stardust quickly said, "I will not have
you go up again Teriney."
"No, Luna," Stardust replied again.
"I'm a dragon too!" Luna exclaimed.
"And you're also my daughter!" Stardust exclaimed.
"A dragon?" Raindrop, Birdie and Whisper asked.
"You have no other choice. I'm as big as him. I can handle
him," Luna told him.
"He killed you the first time. Your mother will never forgive
me if he kills you again," Stardust told him.
Luna looked away sadly, "Do you have another way of stopping
Stardust looked at Teriney getting frustrated the Blizzard was
keeping the fire from burning the valley.
"Stardust," Starfire began to say.
"No, I will not send her in battle," Stardust told
"I don't think she can defeat him but...she might keep him
busy for awhile," Skyview suggested.
"Blizzard is doing that just fine," Stardust replied.
"Stardust, you know she's right. You don't have a choice,"
Skyview told him.
Stardust looked sadly at Luna. He didn't want to admit but having
another dragon on their side would be a great help.
Luna smiled at him, "Please don't worry. I'll be fine."
"But he killed you the first time," Stardust told her.
"I wasn't prepared the first time, dad. I didn't know who
or what was going on the first time. He took me by surprise,"
Luna told him. She winked out and appeared in front of the stairs
away from the castle. Stardust ran up to her just as Luna sat
down. He gave her a hug, "Be careful."
Luna smiled, "I will."
Stardust backed away and watched as the white waters surrounded
her. Her body began to glow brightly. Everyone watched in amazement
as she grew as tall as the castle. Then the white water dissolved
and the glow disappeared. There in the castle yard sat a white
feathered dragon with two pearly horns. Raindrop and Birdie gasped,
they knew who they were looking at.
"The one from the crest, the feathered dragon," Raindrop
whispered, "This is unbelievable."
Luna flapped her feathery wings and flew from the ground.
Teriney heard a noise, he stopped blowing fire and turned to
see Kesia flying towards him.
"I knew you would appear eventually," Teriney groaned.
Kesia flew towards him, her spiked nose pointed at him, her sharp
teeth showing, her claw spread wide. She prepared herself for
a great battle with Teriney. She slammed herself into him causing
him to fall out of the sky. They landed and the two growled and
tried to bite each other's neck. Teriney clawed Kesia making
her cry out. Then she swung her tail at his face.
Stardust stood watching, it hurt to hear her cry out when ever
Teriney clawed her or bit on her.
Blizzard flew back to the castle after putting out most of the
fire in the valley.
"You sent Luna in to battle with him?!" Blizzard exclaimed
"I had no other choice," Stardust answered.
"Blizzard, I don't like the thought of her fighting him
either but I had no other choice. When you rule this valley you
will learn there will be times you won't have no choice,"
Stardust told him.
They turned and watched as Kesia and Teriney fought like wild
animals in the valley, roaring and growling. Birdie nuzzled next
to Skyview for comfort, hoping Luna would be alright. Raindrop
looked at Starfire sadly, she too worried for Luna.
Kesia and Teriney left the ground and flew towards the sky
as they continued to fight. Teriney was bigger and he was older
than Kesia. He knew what to expect from Kesia.
Kesia used her back feet and clawed his stomach, Teriney let
go of Kesia's shoulders and cried painfully. Kesia swung her
tail knocking him out of the sky again. Then she blew fire at
him but missed him. Teriney had landed and rolled over just in
time to avoid the flames.
"Stardust, she can't keep it up," Skyview told him.
"I know and I have no idea what else to do," Stardust
Skyview looked at Starfire, "Think of something!"
"Me?" Starfire asked, "I'm not sure either."
"You have great ideas. Now is the time to think of one,"
Skyview told him.
"I don't know, Skyview. We don't have the pearl so we can't
destroy him," Starfire told him.
"Star Cluster has the pearl and there's no time to travel
back to get him," Skyview replied.
"Star Cluster, he could destroy Teriney...couldn't he?"
Stardust muttered. He began to think of an idea, one he hoped
"There's no time to go get him, Stardust," Skyview
"We might," Stardust replied. He turned and looked
at Raindrop, "Didn't you say there's a gate here?"
"Yes, in the garden behind the castle," Raindrop answered.
"Stardust the gates only goes to another world," Skyview
"Yes but what if you can also go from one gate to another
gate in the same world?" Stardust asked, "The Gates
are just doorways and the golden necklaces are keys to open them.
If we had one key one of us could try to open the door to Dream
Castle and bring Star Cluster here."
"Non of us has a key though," Starfire pointed out.
"We have to get one from Teriney. First we need to know
where it's hidden on him," Stardust replied. he turned and
looked at Whisper who couldn't take her eyes off the dragons.
"Whisper can you ask a bird to find a golden necklaces and
tell us where it's at one him?"
"Sure," Whisper replied. Her horn began to glow as
she called for a fast and yet small bird. A green and yellow
bird flew from the trees to her. She gave the bird instructions
to find a golden necklaces on the green dragon and to let her
know where it was. The bird chirped and left. The bird flew over
the tree tops and up to the green dragon while trying to avoid
getting hit. He flew around the dragons and checked the neck,
then the horns. Then the bird flew back. It chirped at Whisper
who understood what the bird was saying.
"Well?" Stardust asked.
"They're on one of his horns close to his ear," Whisper
"Blizzard can you carry object in you're ummm...snowflakes
form?" Stardust asked.
"I never tried before," Blizzard answered.
"Well, now is the time to try. Go and get one of the keys.
One key will do," Stardust told him.
Blizzard nodded and turned himself into snowflakes. He left the
ground and flew towards the dragons.
