At War (Old Version)

*OLD VERSION! :) There's a newer one published now. :D*
Two princesses are fighting a war for their father's throne. Now, they must inherit their father's mighty battle dragons, and end the war, one way or another... But who will win?


28. Princess Lyrae

Lief hardly has time to recover. We all know that we must go. If Korae catches us, then we will die. After a swift reunion, Nero lifts Lief over his shoulders, and, after I swing myself into the saddle to help him up, passes him to me. I seat Lief behind me, still feeling overwhelmed. I am so happy that he's alive- how could I not be? Lief and Nero are my greatest friends, along with Blaze. And Lance, too, is my friend. 

As Blaze snorts softly, Nero and Lance clamber into the saddle, ready to go. I hate to be forced into making Lief fly after he's just been through so much, but what choice do I have? If we stay here, we'll die. 

"Lyrae... Where are we?" Lief asks, and I glance round, looking at him with dancing eyes. His face is pale, and his voice weak, but he'll live. We did it... We managed to save him!

Blaze beats his wings, and, once again, the sky envelopes us into it's cool, relaxing hands. I love flying, even after days of doing nothing else, I will still love it. Especially, I smile, when my friends are alive.

"So...?" Lief asks, and I realise that I still haven't answered his question.

"Um, well... We're in Korae's territory," I admit, and his eyes widen.

"You all could've been killed!" he manages, the worry on his face so clear to see that I almost feel guilty.

"Yes," I hear Lance call, rather unhelpfully, from the back of the saddle. "We still might be."

Lief looks back at them, and I can see that he's so guilty for making us do this.

"No, we won't be. We'll be leaving her territory soon," Nero says, trying- and failing- to reassure us. I doubt he has even convinced himself, but nod anyway.

"You shouldn't have come," Lief says, his voice frail. I shake my head.

"Yes, we should," Nero insists. "You saved my life, remember? I'm not letting you die. None of us are."

That stops the conversation, with Lief looking guilty, and everyone else just glad he's alive. Lance's words run through my head, and I know he's right. Lief may be alive, but we still have a great danger ahead. Escaping Korae's land may be our most difficult challenge yet.
