Well this is a book I am currently writing and I just wanna know how to improve it and if others like it. So feel free to comment on it.

Prologue: DarkTimes

As darkness started to settle on the realm of Leviatha a young man was standing in the shadows awaiting orders. As he was waiting he watched two young boys about the age of five playing with each other. The boys would chase each other, then they would pick up sticks, pretend they were swords and start play fighting. As the man was watching he pondered the fate of the two boys. Shortly he was joined by an older man who was his captain together they wondered what would they have to do. The man spoke to him “Drake do you see the boy with the dark brownish black hair?" "Yes I see him" Drake replied back. "That’s the prince and our target." "But Mallos what about the other boy?”I don’t know “the older guy replied. Suddenly out of nowhere a mist appeared and out ofthe mist stepped a tall, muscular, and evil man. His eyes were like fire, his hair was Jet black, his clothes were clothes of a royal king who is getting ready for battle. His heart was as cold as a iceberg and his hatred of people knew no bounds. When he spoke it struck fear into the hearts of the men in front of him. His name was Galtorak. "Mallos , Drake I want you to capture the prince and kill the other boy, make sure you do it tonight and without any witnesses." "Now go!" Just as he appeared the mist swallowed him up and he and the mist disappeared without a trace of him every being there."You heard the boss let’s go and get it over with." Mallos said. They both walked off into the forest to set a trap for the boys.

Meanwhile in another part of the realm a young set of twin boys were preparing their home for their dad to come home, they anxiously awaited the time when he would come home. They were the sons of Drake their names were Shondic and Phoenix they were about 8 years old and had a love for adventure. They loved when their dad came home because he would bring them gifts and tell them wonderful stories of the other parts of the realm. They knew he would be home soon so they started feeding the animals and helping their mom prepare for dinner not knowing the consequences of what their dad was about to do.

About five miles away twin sisters Venus and Shanic were preparing dinner for the evening. When suddenly out of the sky a Ruby colored dragon started breathing fire onto theirf arm. They ran out of the house and towards the woods. The dragon saw them and breathed fire scorching Venus on the arm, but they made it to the forest and to safety. The dragon did not pursue them and when it had finished he left the burning farm and flew off into the distance. Venus and Shanic watched as their life as they knew it and their farm burned out of their lives forever. Shanic swore to get revenge for what the dragon had done.

Meanwhile Ropav and Prince Octorok were noticing it was getting late. "Hey Octorok I think we better head back it’s getting late and because you are the prince I'll let you pick which way the long or the short way?" said the boy with light brown hair. "I think Ropav we should take the long way because I don’t feel like going home just yet." So they took the long route and started thru the forest on their way home chatting about what they were going to do the next day never knowing that their plans would never happen. Because Just as soon as they got halfway home they were attacked by Mallos and Drake. "Hello prince it’s a pleasant night don’t you agree?" Mallos said. The prince replied with this comment, "What do you want from us you evil men?" "Oh,just your cooperation in coming willing with us." Drake responded."What if I say no?" "Either way you are coming with us whether you want to our not", Mallos said as he grabbed the prince by the arm.Ropav who stood by quietly while they were talking suddenly jumped on Mallos back and started choking him. Mallos grabbed Ropav off his back and flung himat a tree. Ropav hit the tree and stood up but abruptly collapsed to the ground unconscious."Ha-ha little fellow has some fight in him but bit off more than he could chew." Mallos laughed. Prince Octorok saw what happened tohis friend and cried in sorrow. Mallos knocked the prince out and was about to pick him up when all of a sudden a dark silvery shape knocked him to the ground. They saw it was a silvery (with a tint of blue) she wolf her eyes were angry pools of amber, she was lean and muscular and she wasn't messing around she bit down on Mallos and wouldn't let go. "Stop standing there and get this thing off of me." Mallos said in pain. Just as Drake picked up his sword a fiery ball hit the wolf in the back and she went unconscious. Drake looked up and saw a huge Ruby dragon coming in for a landing. As it landed it said “Hurry up before I change my mind and kill you." Drake picked up Ropav and jumped on the dragon's back, Mallos followed with the prince. They took off and headed off into the distance. The she wolf woke up and saw it was hopeless to get them. She howled a long mournful howl then ran off into the forest in pursuit of the dragon. "Ha-ha" Mallos laughed when all of a sudden the dragon took a nosedive and the prince fell off. Drake tried to grab him but it was too late and the prince was lost somewhere in the forest. The dragon took him home and just as he settled down with his kids the dragon struck.

Phoenix saw him first "Mom, Shondic dad's home" he shouted in glee. He ran to greet Drake and gave him a big hug. They walked together into the house and sat down for dinner. When out of nowhere a fire ball hit their house and killed their parents. Shondic and Phoenix stared in shock. Shondic was the first to respond.He grabbed Phoenix and ran out of the house into the woods. They barely made it when another fireball came inches from hitting them. Phoenix cried mournfully and Shondic swore to get revenge as they watched as the life as they knew it disappeared forever.

Meanwhile in another town a young boy was caught stealing a loaf of bread he was taken to Galtorak's fortress and beaten. He was told he was now a slave and he was going to obey everything he was told to do or he would receive a worse beating. He was only six but he resolved he would get out of this if it's the last thing he would do. He was sold to a wealthy farmer and taken to his farm where he lived as a slave. About three miles away a young girl about 5 years old was found in the streets a young couple found her and took her in to raise her as a slave, she didn't know it but she would be a slave for a long time.

Three days later a young couple found a young boy unconscious in the forest, his clothes were dirty ,his hair was a tangled mess of brownish black hair, and in his hands he held a piece of cloth that said "Help me. "The couple took him in and cared for and raised him as an ordinary boy. He didn't know who he was so they called him Octorok, after the prince who had gone missing, not knowing that he was the missing prince.

Meanwhile Galtorak was furious that they had lost the prince and sent a army out looking for him never knowing that he was in the care of a young couple about one mile from his fortress. Galtorak decided it was time to start searching for the emerald scale, and the dragon champion. Galtorak would never give up until he had it.He looked over into a twisted mirror and saw Firedrake a huge ruby colored dragon. "Don’t worry my friend we will be one again and nothing will stop us when that happens" Galtorak cackled evilly.

If I get around to reading this I'll let you know if there are missed words, I shouldn't be backlogging myself like this though! AAAH!
But, still, this interests me and I feel the need to be more helpful when I see the words "book" or "novel" because nobody else seems to.

Chapter 1 Intertwining Fate
Twilight was falling on the land as a young fellow was working on pounding and heating a piece of metal. The young fellow was fifteen and had been working with the blacksmith since he was ten. He started work when he was ten because he had too much energy and usually drove his parents crazy with his restless spirit. He was a bright lad and learned fast. He was about five feet eight inches tall. His hair was a dark brownish black color, and his clothes were covered in ash and soot from working at the forge. He was a handsome young lad and his eyes always sparkled with friendliness. He was an unusual fellow being as he was very friendly but he preferred to be alone, and he tried not to get too close to anyone for fear he would be hurt. He had a personality that could melt all but the coldest hearts. His parents didn't know his real name because they found him in the forest when he was five, he didn't even know his own name. They named him Octorok after the young prince that was missing. The blacksmith soon learned that Octorok had a natural ability to forge weapons. By the time Octorok turned thirteen he could forge shields, and weapons of all sorts. His blades were all unique and of the finest make. People would come from all over the realm to buy a blade from him. Octorok never sold a blade to one with evil intentions, and he was always fair to the people when he sold his blades and other weapons. He priced the weapons by what the person could pay and sometimes he even gave his blades away. Right now he was working on a secret project of his. As he took the diamond shaped metal out of the fire he spoke to himself." I wonder why I am doing this, it must be for a future need or something but why am I making two of them?" In the corner sat a shield exactly like the one he was working on. By the shield was a sword which was his finest sword he had ever made he didn't know why but for the first time he didn't want anyone to see his blade. He pulled the shield he was working on out of the cooling water and set it next to the other shield. He started working on making another sword, when he saw the blacksmith coming back from the woods. He quickly hid the sword, and then waited for the blacksmith to come up to the forge. He didn't have to wait long and when the blacksmith arrived he spoke. "Evening Blaze what are you up to tonight?" The blacksmith replied by laughing and saying" I should be asking you the same thing Octorok, but if you must know I was checking the woods for the rouge horse that escaped ten years ago." "Wouldn't it be gone by now?" Octorok questioned. "You would think so but I heard reports of a strange horse destroying fences and attacking people." Octorok gasped at the report." You mean you think it’s the same horse?" "I am sure it’s the same one but enough about the horse it’s getting late shouldn't you be heading home Octorok?" "Yes I am going home now."Octorok started walking home. "Tell your parents I said hello." "I will" replied Octorok as he disappeared down the road. Octorok got home and told his parents what Blaze had said, then told them he was going to bed. "Goodnight son we will see you in the morning." As soon as Octorok's head hit his pillow he was out like a light and because he was a heavy sleeper he didn't hear the screams of his parents as they were attacked by an evil dark colored Arabian stallion.Octorok woke up the next morning feeling refreshed but he had a foreboding thought about today. He figured his parents were already gone for the day, so he got dressed and made some breakfast, and then he left to get to work. Because his mind was on his work he didn't see the blood on the ground and kept walking. He got to the blacksmith's and started working on the sword again. He worked all day long on the blade and only had a little bit left to get done when he heard a stallion scream. He immediately dropped the blade and spun around to stare into the face of a dark bay Arabian stallion. The stallion pawed the ground then snorted in Octorok's face staring at him with an inquisitive expression. They stared at each other for about ten minutes when the stallion turned away and galloped off into the distance. "I wonder what that was all about, that stallion was huge and definitely looked like it would kill me at any moment, I wonder why it didn't ? " Octorok pondered while he picked up the sword and got back to work. A couple of hours later he finished the blade and set it next to the identical blade in his special hiding place. His shields always looked the same but for the first time his swords were completely identical like twin blades. The hiding place was in a secluded place and about an hour's walk from town. He had found it one day while exploring the forest when he was six years old. Over the years he would come here to relax and hide his valuables. As far as he knew he was the only one who knew about this place. After he placed the blade down he started heading home. He was halfway home when he saw Blaze staring at something on the ground. He walked up to Blaze and was about to ask him what he was looking at when he saw it and had to look away with grief on his face. For what he saw was the torn and dead body of his adopted mother. Blaze spoke "Octorok we think the stallion did this and we think he attacked them last night, we haven't found your father yet but we think he was also attacked." Suddenly they heard a moan come from the bushes and they both turned to see Octorok's adopted father come crawling out. "Father what happened to you and mother?" Octorok questioned. "A stallion attacked me and your mother while we were enjoying a moonlit stroll, it killed your mother instantly then started to attack me but stopped when it thought I was dead then it ran off."Nolen replied in a weak voice. Blaze cursed under his breath and said he had to leave and find the stallion before it killed anyone else. Octorok stayed with his father for the rest of the night and when the first rays of dawn began to come up over the treetops his father spoke again. "Son you know already how we aren't your real parents but we loved you as if you were our real son, I am dying but with my last wish I want you to never stop being who you are and I hope one day you will actually get to meet your real parents. I love you son." Nolen replied with his last breath. Octorok looked at both of his adopted parents and whispered" I will honor your last request father, and I will start on a quest to find the stallion that killed you and get revenge even if it is the last thing I do, I swear to kill the stallion."Throughout the next week Octorok was very restless and got very little sleep. "Today was the funeral and tomorrow I will start on my quest." Octorok whispered to himself as he walked to his secret hideout. As he entered the clearing he noticed something was wrong. He saw broken branches and crushed bushes as if something forced itself through the entrance. He ran the rest of the way and stopped abruptly when he saw an Arabian stallion in his hideout. A man was on the stallion's back and in his hand he held one of the swords and on his back was one of the shields. The man looked Octorok in the eyes and muttered something under his breath. Then he kicked the stallion and as he galloped off he yelled "We will meet again Octorok and thanks for the blade." As the stallion galloped away Octorok formed a plan. He grabbed his bag, shield and blade even though he knew it was futile he ran off in pursuit of the man and stallion. He had the man in his sight, when all of a sudden a mist appeared and out of the mist an enormous Ruby colored dragon appeared and picked up the man. The mist swallowed up the stallion and the dragon. When the mist had disappeared the dragon, stallion, and man were all gone. Octorok knew this was going to be an abortive attempt at getting the stallion but he didn't think it was going to be this unproductive. Octorok continued walking. "I started this quest and I am going to complete it even if it kills me". He said as he walked deeper into the forest.Octorok had been in the forest for days now and he still had no clue where he was going. He decided as soon as he exited the forest he would find the nearest town and stock up on supplies. About a week later he was out of food and water and there was no sight of a town, an end of the forest, or anything to eat or drink. He was getting discouraged and very weary, but he continued on his journey. He was glad he did when two days later he saw a village. He entered the village and stopped at the nearest inn he paid for a room then went to his room and fell into a deep sleep which lasted for three days. "Wake up you lazy, filthy, scoundrel, before I came in there and wake you up myself." someone yelled banging on his door. Octorok woke with a start. “Ow my head, wait I am not a lazy, filthy, scoundrel, and well maybe I am filthy but that will be solved in a minute." Octorok thought to himself. He cleaned himself then put on fresh clothes. After he finished he walked into the hallway and downstairs. "There you are lazy scoundrel, now pay up or else, "the innkeeper yelled at him."I don't appreciate you calling me a lazy scoundrel and I already paid for the night yesterday."Octorok replied back trying to control his anger. "I hate to burst your bubble mister but you stayed for three nights not one." the innkeeper explained softly. "What! I slept for three days no wonder you called me lazy, I am apologize for the misunderstanding miss and here is the money I owe you I am deeply sorry. "Octorok said as he apologized. “That’s ok mister I am sorry I called you all of those names but I got to keep my job going or my master might not feed me tonight. By the way you can my name is Moonbeam. What's your name?" The innkeeper asked. "Nice to meet you Moonbeam, my name is Octorok, I am sorry to have caused you trouble, but I really thought I was only asleep for one night not three." No problem Octorok thanks for being so kind about it I got to get back to work now but I hope we meet again Octorok."Moonbeam replied in a not so cheerful voice. "I hope so to Moonbeam you are a thoughtful girl I hope you aren't a slave next time we meet." "Ha-ha you never know I may be free next time we meet" Moonbeam said to him as she disappeared outside. Octorok walked out the front door and thought about how a girl like Moonbeam could be so friendly when she was treated so cruelly. He walked into the marketplace and bought the supplies he needed for his quest. He started on the road heading towards the forest when all of a sudden he had a flashback. He was running around with a boy about his age and they were both having a fun time. A wolf was watching him play as if she were his protector and in the distance he saw a man leaning against a tree watching the boy and him. The man had sorrow written all over his face. Octorok pondered who that boy was and why the man looked so filled with sorrow, he thought he recognized that man but he wasn't sure why. "I wonder why I had that flashback here." He thought as he looked around he saw that he was in the same clearing as his flashback and realized that this clearing was a special place. He wondered where that boy was and what had separated them ten years ago.* * * * The ruby colored dragon landed on a rocky ledge then changed into a man, dropping the man that was on his back to the ground. "Mallos! Do you know how hard it is to change into my fiery form these days? On top of that you were almost caught by that lad, you are lucky you had Deo or you would have never escaped. Did you even get want you wanted to ?" The dragon man said. "Yes I did master Galtorak, and the stallion was an excellent choice, I outdistanced that boy by a long shot. But master that boy looked very familiar, I wonder could he be the lost prince Octorok?" Mallos replied. Galtorak looked at Mallos with rage "I am pretty sure if it was the prince I would have known, so don't you ever suggest that again." He shouted as his eyes blazed with flames. "Ok boss whatever you say" Mallos stammered. Galtorak calmed down as he said "Go check the prisoner he has been restless for the past ten years, and I don't want him escaping and joining with his friend the prince. We need the boy so we can lure the prince to us and capture him, I need him caught alive." Mallos walked off into the dungeons as he went he muttered to himself " I am sure that was the lost prince and with this blade I will free the prisoner, I am tired of Galtorak telling me what to do all the time. His reign must end so I can rule instead, but for him to be defeated the dragon champion must be found and the dragon warriors must form. When that happens Galtorak will be destroyed and I will claim his power and become ruler of all. Mwhaha."Meanwhile a boy about fifteen years old was watching the meeting between Mallos and Galtorak. He wondered how he was going to get out and when he would ever see his friend again. He watched as Mallos came down the hallway and prepared for anything. Mallos entered laughing his evil laugh." Hello little Ropav aren't you filled with abhorrence toward us by now." Mallos snickered. "You think I abhor you it’s much more then that you have made my life miserable for the past ten years, you have tormented me and tried your best to make me hate everyone, you have beaten me and made me target practice for your guards. So you think I abhor you the answer is yes I hate you with every fiber of my being and will make you suffer as much as you have made me suffer." Ropav replied with vehemence. "Strong words for one so young and one who is about to die." Mallos said as he pulled out a deadly blade and drove it through the bars at Ropav. Ropav dodged the sword and tackled Mallos to the ground, took the sword from him and stabbed Mallos in the chest with the blade. Mallos mumbled in a weak voice "This was not supposed to happen." then died. Ropav pulled the blade from Mallos's chest grabbed the shield that was lying on the ground, and then charged down the hallway and out into the field that led to the stables.As Ropav ran past the stables a Arabian stallion watched him, the stallion was a dark bay color and was Galtorak's favorite stallion because the stallion's heart was colder than normal but not as cold as his master's heart, the stallion was wondering what the lad was doing running away from the fortress, the stallion guessed he was a escaped prisoner so he charged out the gate and blocked the boy's path. Ropav almost ran right into the stallion and if he hadn't looked up when he did he would have ran into it. Ropav stopped abruptly and that's when the stallion attacked. Before Ropav could move the stallion was on him and had him pinned to the ground,but the stallion wasn't attacking anymore it just stood there staring at him. "Will you please get off of me horse so I can leave?" To Ropav's astonishment the stallion listened and started nuzzling him with its muzzle. "Ok this is a little odd, I wonder what your name is." The stallion pawed the ground like it was writting. Ropav looked down and saw that the stallion had written Deo on the ground. "Your name is Deo, ok Deo can you let me get on your back so I can escape faster?" Deo responded by picking Ropav up by the back of his shirt and dropping him on his back. The stallion then looked back at Ropav on his back and winked. Before Ropav could recover from his astonishment the stallion started galloping, He had to hold onto the stallion's mane and held on for his life, because this stallion was wickedly fast.About an hour later Ropav could hold on no longer and fell off into a bush in the woods. Deo turned around and nuzzled the unconscious boy as if to say you are welcome little man, then he turned back into the woods and headed back to the stables. A couple of hours later Ropav regained consciousness. He stood up and then wished he hadn't because pain shot up his body, he looked down and saw he had landed in a thorn bush on top of some pointy rocks. He almost went unconscious again but instead he moved away from the thorn bush then collapsed on the ground. He woke up a little bit later in someone's room on their bed. He tried to get up but a girl gently pushed him back down and told him "You need to rest." Where am I?" Ropav asked. "You are at Aaron's Cloud Inn "the girl replied. “Who are you and where is the Cloud Inn located?" Ropav questioned. "My name is Moonbeam and the inn is located just outside the Forests of Leviathan, you ask a lot of questions before I leave can you tell me your name?" "My name is Ropav" he replied as he fell back to sleep. He woke up to someone shouting in his ear. "Oww my head, what's with the shouting?" he asked. "Ahh you are awake my name is Aaron Nobleman and I am the owner of this fine inn, what are you doing here without paying and what do you think of this fine inn ?" a man asked him. "Really! You wake me up by shouting in my ear to ask me what I think of your inn, I think it's the worst inn ever the dungeon was better than this place. And to answer your other question I was brought in here. I don't appreciate your manners and I am glad I didn't pay for your service."Ropav replied with indignation. "How dare you, you ungrateful scalawag I brought you into my inn and give you the best of everything, and you treat me like this well I this is what I think of you." Aaron shouted with anger as he picks Ropav up and tosses him out of the inn. "And don't come back you scoundrel, if you do I will be doing more than kicking you out." I can't believe it that guy is as mean and cruel as I thought he was Ropav said as he got up stiffly. He started walking into town when he suddenly remembered he didn't think Moonbeam so he turned around and walked to the back of the inn towards the stables. He saw her watering the horses and approached her. "Thank-you very much Moonbeam for all the help you gave me I hope you win your freedom some day you deserve it." She turned around startled and stammered "TTThank-yyou I don't deserve thanks I did nothing really." "Still you helped me and I thank you for that "he replied."Ok then you are welcome Ropav. You know you remind me of a guy named Octorok he was here a couple of days ago and he was as kind as you are I hope you meet him someday. Anyways you better get leaving before my master comes back here and finds you." She spoke softly. "That name sounds very familiar I have a feeling I should know him but I don't remember, and you are right I better get out of here, I hope we meet again someday" he answered as he walked away.Ropav decided to get some supplies before heading on but he didn't want to go into town, but he knew he had to "I am going to hate this very much." he sighed. He walked into town and asked for the provisions he needed, everywhere he went in that town the people stared at him like they were looking at a ghost. It made him feel very uncomfortable so he paid for his stuff as fast as he could then he headed into the woods. He had been walking for a hour when he came to a field. He recognized it, and realized this is where he played with his friend when they were younger, before he was taken prisoner, but for some strange reason he couldn't remember what his friend's name was or what his friend looked like, all he could remember is his friend was a prince and that he had been captured protecting his friend. He walked onward not knowing that his friend was just three feet away asleep under a berry bush. He decided to try and find his friend but he would avoid towns unless he absolutely needed supplies, he hated when the people stared at him. Being imprisoned for ten years enduring the torture had made him bitter, distrustful and full of hatred towards people. It was getting late and he still needed to find a place he could sleep and something he could eat because he forgot to buy enough food. Suddenly he heard a noise behind him he drew his sword and quietly turned around then backed up behind a tree. The bushes rustled and out stepped a wolf. It was a she wolf and she held part of a deer in her mouth. He watched the wolf come closer then watched as she lay down and started eating the deer. He realized if he didn't do something about the wolf he would be there for hours. So he quietly and carefully walked towards the wolf, he knew he hadn't made a sound but the wolf had somehow sensed him and turned towards him. The she wolf looked him in the eyes for a while then turned and walked away into the woods. "Those eyes I remember seeing them, I recognized that wolf that was Oceana the prince's loyal guardian. I wonder why she didn't attack me and why she isn't with the prince" he pondered as he lay down for the night and went to sleep under the twinkling stars.

Chapter 2 Warrior’s Struggle​
"Get to work you despicable excuse for a slave or I'll drop your rations down, and make you sleep in the jail again."A man shouted at a lad about sixteen years old. The lad didn't even flinch as he continued watching a group of soldiers approach. The man looked at the ladcuriously then looked down the road to see what the lad was looking at. He froze in fear as he saw a group of soldiers marching towards his ranch."No it can't be them I paid my fee. Diamond if you can help me I will free you, and will make sure you are well equipped for the battle" he said as he turned back to the boy. "I'll do it, but you must give me your shield and blade you received from that young Octorok guy." Diamond said as he watched the soldiers advance. "Whatever you say Diamond here take them I won't need them besides it doesn't stay sharp and the shield won't take much more hits, look at all the dents in it. The man said as he passed the blade and shield over. As soon as Diamond touched the sword and shield they magically were restored. The dents in the shield disappeared and the sword became as sharp as steel. The man stared in awe because he realized that Octorok was right the blade and shield were made for people with good intentions, and because he was a man with evil intentions the blade would never work for him and the shield wouldn't protect him. The soldiers were advancing but as soon as they got close to the fence the stopped marching and shouted for Timothus to come out. The man stepped towards them " What are you doing here I paid for my life already?" The lead soldier stepped towards him." You Timothus have been sentenced to death for helping a dragon warrior, and thus shall perish" as he spoke Diamond struck and killed him instantly. The other soldiers seeing their leader killed so fast were in chaos some ran away whereas others charged at the man who killed thier leader. It was over as soon as it started the soldiers that had attacked were all dead on the ground. Timothus turned to Diamond "You are free just as I promised you may go in peace mighty warrior" he said as he handed Diamond a bag full of food and other provisions. Diamond handed the provisions back to him. "I don't want your provisions Timothus, besides I am staying here for a while to work for pay if that's alright with you?" Timothus looked at Diamond with a guarded expression "You may stay for three years but that is all, I don't want any trouble from you. So if you want to stay you must not threaten me and you must listen to my instructions, do you understand boy?" he growled. "Yes I understand and if you want to live I wouldn't use that tone with me." "Is that a threat boy? Well whatever your first job is to go to town and gather supplies take the side road and stay out of trouble you hear!"
Diamond didn't respond as he started down the road to the town of Deoraina,it took him three days to get there without any problems occurring. The first thing he did was go to an inn; he didn't like the Cloud Inn's name so he went to Raina Inn instead and spent the night. He woke the next morning feeling refreshed and eager to get done so he could explore. He went to the first store he could find; in this store were all kinds of stuff from food to bombs. The guy running the store looked like a huge boulder with spikes going down his back, he had strange black markings on his arm and he was curled in a ball. As if he knew he was being observed he uncurled out of the ball and in a booming voice asked "Is there anything you need strange warrior,I have everything for a traveler's needs I have already helped two other people who seemed like warriors, one was a confused person who looked like he didn't know who he was,yet he was confident and caring he has the making of a true dragon warrior.The second one looked like he needed a good meal and kind treatment, he was very withdrawn and looked like he had been mistreated for a long time but I could sense under all that a true warrior exists all he needs is to find someone to trust again. Now I meet my third warrior I can sense you are overconfident,rash and yet under it all you are kind, sensitive and willing to fight for what’sright. The three of you are all different yet you will all be true dragonwarriors and fight to destroy the evil in this land. I can see you are confused but you will understand soon enough, now what can I get you young man? "Diamond looked at him like he was crazy yet he knew this man was right. He gave the creature the list for Timothus and then walked around exploring the shop.He saw bows, arrows, bombs, shields, swords, hammers, and all sorts of stuff. He stopped in front of a poster with a marking of some sort. The creature saw what he was looking at and started explaining about it “That is the marking ofthe dragon warrior. The three triangles represent power, courage and wisdom,the sword represents the willingness of the warrior to fight for what’s right and never to use their blade for wrong doing. The dragon wings stand for the dragon champion whom the dragon warriors must find and work together with to release the mighty emerald dragon Link. The flames represent that the dragonwarriors must overcome many obstacles to free Link but they must prevail,and finally the paw prints represent that like the wolf is different and similar at the same time yet works together so are all the dragon warriors different but they too will work together." "So you are telling me I have to find other dragon warriors, and a dragon champion to free a mythical creature?"He questioned. The creature looked at him with wonder "You think it’s a myth, you don't know how wrong you are. I can see you are going to be a stubborn one and will cause the other dragon warriors to falter and stumble.You must learn to get over that and be a team player." "Who exactly are you to tell me what I can and can't do I don't even know what you are let alone why I am even talking to you “he replied with a deep anger. "I am a Goron's cousin we are called Norogs, not as recognizable as our cousins but equally as powerful as are cousins but we tend to be more aggressive and more prone to attack travelers who annoy us." The strange creature said as he chuckled. "Just give me the supplies so I can get on my way. I don't want to hear anything else it's all just a myth and I do not believe in myths I believe in the here and now. And what I need now is to get back to my boss with these supplies before I get fired “Diamond shouted at the Norog as he grabbed his supplies and hurried out of the shop. “He has a lot to learn and for the others sake I hope he learns fast "the Norog said to he himself as he watched Diamond leave, he shook his head and mumbled something to himself as he curled back up into a ball and fell asleep.
Diamond continued on his way home forgetting to take the side road he took the forest path and that’s where the trouble began. He wasn't even looking where he was going and fell into a trap. Soldiers attacked him from all sides he didn't even have time to draw his sword before they attacked.He backed up towards a tree and tried to draw his sword but it was stuck in its sheath and he couldn't pull it out. The soldiers advanced, as he bumped into the tree he was trapped with nowhere to go, he decided if he was going to die hew ould die fighting. So he charged the soldiers with his shield raised he sounded a battle cry. When suddenly the soldiers seemed distracted and to get fewer and fewer each second but as Diamond looked at the ground he saw the soldiers he noticed that they were all dead except for one. The one that wasn't dead was fighting a boy who looked younger then himself. The boy had a sword of the finest steel and seemed to know how to use it. As he watched he saw the boy slice the last soldier, the boy looked at him then he turned away and walked off into the woods.
As Diamond continued back to Timothus's place he pondered who the boy was and why he had helped him. He made it back without another incident and handed the supplies to Timothus then headed back to his room in the bunkhouse. As he prepared for bed he wondered if he could ever repay the boy back and pondered what the Norog had said and thought maybe the Norog was right and maybe the dragon warriors and Link the emerald dragon were maybe not a myth after all. He closed his eyes and dreamed about the symbol of the dragon warriors and wondered why he was chosen to be a dragon warrior because he had a lot to learn if he was going to be one and he decided he would start by finding that boy as soon as his three years were up he would find that boy and find out what it meant to be a true warrior.

"Thief, thief someone stop him he stole that food " someone shouted as a tall, muscular,attractive, young man ran by. The thief ran faster and disappeared in the woods. As the young thief entered in a secluded area he slowed down and checked the food. "I think it’s about time I leave, Phoenix you can take care of yourself now I promise as soon as I get done with this mission I will return." A young man said as he stepped out of the shadows he looked exactly the same as the Phoenix except his hair was a lighter blonde color."But Shondic I need you, you can't leave me. Please don't go this mission to get revenge has made you withdrawn, filled with rage and hatred. You used to be so much fun to be around but it’s been ten years and still you harbor this bitterness please brother don't go." Phoenix pleaded. His brother turned to look at him and Phoenix knew he couldn't change his brother's mind for he saw in his brother's eyes so much hatred he had to turn away. When he looked back he saw that his brother was gone. I hope he will be alright he said to himself.
Meanwhile a little further in the woods a young woman who had light brown hair, was muscular not as tall as Phoenix but very beautiful, ran into a clearing with a sack on her shoulder."Shanic where are you I was very successful today apparently some man decided to steal before me , so the shop keepers were busy chasing him leaving me free to get whatever I needed " the girl as she looked for her sister.A woman that had darker brown hair stepped out from behind a tree she looked exactly like her sister well besides the hair. "Venus, I must go before I turn on you. You know this desire for revenge has turned me evil and if I don't leave soon I don't know if I will be able to stop myself from attacking you. I know you will be fine you have turned out to be a lovely caring young lady, mother would be proud" the lady named Shanic said. Venus looked at her sister and knew that she was right she handed the food to her and wished herl uck on her journey. I'll be back before you know it her sister said before she disappeared into the forest.
As the days went by Phoenix couldn't stop thinking about his brother he wondered if Shondic was alright and when he would see him again. He decided that he wasn't going to stay here any longer he was going to look for his brother even if it took years. He started down the road past the town and into the Forests of Leviathan.
Meanwhile Venus had already planned on doing just that and was almost to the town of Deoraina when she was stopped by some soldiers. The soldiers asked her all kinds of questions like what she was doing in the forest, and why she was traveling alone. She answered the soldier’s questions to the best of her abilities, but her answers didn't satisfy the men. They didn't believe her and wanted to take her to their leader so they moved towards her. She backed away and even though she knew nobody was around she screamed for help.
Phoenix had just come over the hill when he heard a woman screaming for help. He ran towards the screams and saw a beautiful young lady trapped by soldiers. He didn't even think before he acted, he charged the soldiers and attacked them from behind he quickly disposed of the six soldiers before they even knew what hit them. The girl looked at him then promptly fainted from exhaustion. He walked over to her, picked her up and carried her into town. He walked to the first inn he could find and paid for two rooms for the night. He put her in her room on the bed and covered her with the blanket then he walked out of the room closing thed oor behind him. "Is she your girlfriend? She is very beautiful" someone whispered to him. He spun around and looked into the eyes of a young lady. “Sorry to startle you, my name is Moonbeam and I am the keeper of this inn, what’s your name?" The young innkeeper said. "I am Phoenix,that’s ok I was just thinking about something else. Yes she is very beautiful and no she is not my girlfriend I just met her in the forest just a couple of minutes ago." Moonbeam looked at him then she told him he should get some rest and she would talk to him in the morning. So he went to bed and slept for hours. When he finally woke up it was the middle of the afternoon. He decided to take a shower and then go down for lunch.
Meanwhile Venus had woke up hours ago. She wondered where she was and where the handsome man that had rescued her was. She got out of bed and headed downstairs, while she was down there she learned from the innkeeper that the stranger's name was Phoenix and that he had brought her here and paid for her room. She wanted to thank the young man so she waited for him to come downstairs. She didn't have to wait long because about an hour later he came down. As soon as he came down the stairs he sat down next to her then asked her if she was alright. 'Yes I am just fine, thank-you for rescuing me Phoenix.’ “So now you know my name but I don't know yours will you please tell me it?" 'Yes I will it is Venus and I am in search of my twin sister, what brings you here?' “I am in search of my twin brother do you want to work together?" 'Yes let's start right away.' Venus stood up and followed Phoenix outside. They thanked Moonbeam then headed into the woods.
Meanwhile about fifty miles away Shondic had just woken up when he heard shouting nearby. He grabbed a stick then headed towards the shouting. What he saw made him gasp and almost drop his stick. He saw a beautiful young lady shouting at a group of soldiers as she shouted she jabbed the soldiers that got too close to her with a stick. He laughed at that and wished he hadn't because the soldiers turned towards him and he only had a stick with him. Suddenly his arm felt heavier and when he looked down he saw instead of a stick he had a sword in his hand. The girl looked at him shocked as he charged the soldiers and knocked them out ignoring the sharp pain in his leg as one soldier sliced him. He was down to the last three soldiers when he couldn't stand anymore he collapsed on the ground and promptly passed out. The girl looked at him them sighed "men are hopeless", she looked down and noticed her stick was also a sword and then she charged andf inished off the remaining soldiers before they even knew what hit them. The girl’s name was Shanic and she was on a quest to get revenge and didn't want to babysit this guy but she owed him her life so she stayed with him and tended to his injury. When he woke up she made sure he didn't move and learned his name was Shondic and he too was on a quest for revenge. She decided to team up with him and as soon as he was perfectly healed they would continue on their mission together. It took almost a month for Shondic's injury to completely heal, during that month they got to know each other better and they also learned to trust each other.
Also during that month they faced many enemies and prevailed only when they worked together. They learned each other’s strengths and weaknesses. They fought together like a well-oiled machine and seemed to know each other better after each fight. That morning Shondic got up by himself and walked with a limp but he still was able to walk without aid. Two weeks later he could walk perfectly fine and so that's the day they moved on. They ended up in a unoccupied town. The town looked like a ghost town it was all quiet and burned down. It looked like it had happened recently. They both burned with anger when they saw that not all the citizens had made it out in time. They buried the dead and then quickly walked out of that dreadful place. They traveled for a couple of months without a sign of Galtorak or his soldiers, but they heard rumors of a prisoner escaping from his fortress but nothing else. They looked for traces of him being there but they never found anything. They passed through several more burned down villages and both of them could hardly contain their anger when they saw all the dead lifeless forms. There was so many dead that they had stopped burying them all a long time ago. Both Shanic and Shondic looked at each then headed into the woods.
Meanwhile Phoenix and Venus were both traveling through the woods when they came to a clearing. In the middle of the clearing sat a wolf she watched the two of them approach, and then as they raised their swords to attack she walked away. That left Venus and Phoenix both baffled. They stared at one another confused then continued walking to the edge of the clearing. They looked on the ground where the wol fhad been and saw a strange marking. The marking had three triangles stacked in another triangle on the sides of the triangle were dragon wings, on the top of the triangle was a sword sticking out,the sword had gem in the hilt the sword was engulfed in flames. Right beside the triangle on each side was a paw print. When they stepped closer to get a better look the symbol disappeared leaving them more baffled than ever.
