32. Training

Hello Readers!!!! Just so you guys know, this chapter is a long one... like a super long one. Thanks for reading! Please like and comment what you think!!!




I woke up shivering, the fire was put out and the sun was starting to rise. Patten and Emma were snuggled together, and Melanie and Holter were sleeping in near proximity to each other. Brooke was awake, and she was sharpening a knife. "Ah, one arises!" she said as I sat up. Maulduen and Romnly were laying behind Emma and Patten while Julionna and Jura made a large semi circle around Holter and Melanie. 

"Yes, I was cold." I answered stretching slightly, Brooke nodded, her head snapping toward the forest. Gracie and Finel crashed through the foliage, breathing heavily. When they saw us they stopped abruptly, spraying dirt and grass forward. "Gracie!" I yelled, quickly covering my mouth when I remembered that people were still sleeping, she walked over, towering a head and shoulder over me.

"Tomi, it is good to see you again."

"Where have you two been?" I asked hugging her, then Finel.

"We were spying on the castle." Finel explained shaking her large head. "Alana is preparing for you guys to attack, now that she knows Patten is alive. She thinks that Melanie and Holter are still dead though and that you are still with the pirates, so we have that advantage. And she doesn't know that the four are bonded to dragons either, so her preparations are small." I looked over at the group sleeping; Emma was waking up, stretching in her sleep.

"Well thats good." I said turning back to the Wolves. "I just need to train, I haven't sparred in like four weeks, and that isn't good." I said. Emma walked up behind me and wrapped an arm around my shoulders, her free hand rubbing Gracie's muzzle.

"Your back!" She said sleepily, and Gracie nodded her massive head. "Great - I was starting to miss you." She leaned more heavily into me, dropping her hand.

"I missed you too." Gracie said licking her maw.

"Well - lets wake everyone up!" Emma exclaimed turning back to the others sleeping; then without another thought, she ran over to Melanie's sleeping form, and jumped on her. I winced as Melanie tensed up on impact. "Wake up my dear sister!" she yelled in her year. Melanie's hand flew to her side, then in a swift motion up with one of her daggers in her hand. Emma caught her fist just in time and pushed it back down to the ground. Then she got up and strode over to Holter and kicked him in the side before running over to Patten - expecting the worst I closed my eyes. But I heard nothing painful so I opened my eyes to see her on her stomach inching closer to Patten's face. I sighed as she kissed him - of course. He woke up almost immediately, wrapping his arms around her waist, holding her to him deepening the kiss.

"Ugh!" Melanie exclaimed holding her stomach, a belated reply to Emma jumping on her. Holter, all the way up at the sound of her distress looked around to see Finel and Gracie after checking if Melanie was okay.

"Finel!" He yelled, running at inhuman speed to tackle her to the ground. I laughed, stepping out of the way of the flying paws and legs. 



I broke the kiss, inching away from Patten, but he caught me when I tried, leaning forward to catch me in another kiss. Sighing, I gave in as he pinned me to the ground kissing me harder, his hand traveling down my side; then he was gone and cold air hit me like a truck. "Whoa boy!" Holter said dragging him away, and I blushed hard sitting up to see Patten pouting by Romnly. But when he saw I was looking at me he smiled. 

"I missed that." He said standing up, I stood up as well, brushing the dirt off my back.

"I missed that too..." I looked around our group, who was now all up. "Okay, we need to train today." I said walking over to Maulduen to rub his large snout. 

"Great - I need to shoot my bow, I haven't shot in a while." Melanie said swinging her bow across her back; Holter followed her, picking up his own bow. 

"Tomi, do you want to spar with me?" I asked taking my long white sword out of it's scabbard. She nodded taking her staff sword and swinging it around her head in a fluent movement. We got into position across from each other. 

"Lets do this." she said then attacked. An hour passed of us dodging and passing blows between the both of us, I wasn't getting tired, but Tomi was draining fast, her moves slow and sloppy. With a single blow to her staff she fell to the ground grasping for air, sweat dripping from her brow. "My gosh! How aren't you tired?" She asked grasping her chest. I took a deep breath, whipping sweat off my own forehead. 

"I've been fighting longer than you - and I am also bonded with a dragon who gives me strength. You need someone who fights with the same weapon and who is not boned with a dragon to spar." I said sitting next to Tomi. She rolled onto her back, her hands outstretched to both sides. 

"I only know one person who fights with a staff sword like me..." she paused taking a deep breath. "And he's somewhere in the ocean with a crew of around 600 people." I perked up at the sound of 600 people. 


"Yeah; It was a big ship if you didn't see." She said opening her eyes to stare at me. 

"We need them on our side." I said standing back up. 

"Well, not to put a damper on your plan... but how are you going to find them?" she asked sitting up. I looked over to Patten who was playing with Romnly. 

"Romnly was the one who found you; I bet she could do it again." I said standing up; Tomi followed hyper now. 

"Patten, Romnly?" I asked walking over to them.

"Yes my love?" Patten answered turning to me with a large smile on his face. I rolled my eyes but let him wrap me in a tight hug.

"We need to find the ship that stole Tomi." I said pulling away from him looking to Romnly who perked up.

"Yes! Yes! Yes!" Romnly said bouncing up and down like a dog wanting a bone. "What I am hearing is water, and water is my specialty." Maulduen walked up to our small group.

/I can be ready to go at any time Emma./ he said already knowing my plan. I nodded up at him; then picking up Tomi and swinging her onto my back I ran up Maulduen's wing, Patten close behind.

"I sent word to Holter so they know we are leaving." He said as I sat Tomi down at the base of Maulduen's neck.

"Thanks - that is always soo scary. How do you two do it?" She asked trying to find somewhere to grip on Maulduen's smooth back.

"It just comes naturally I guess." I said as Maulduen started to flap his massive wings. Romnly followed close after, having to flap her wings 6 times in one of Maulduen's. We flew between the first layer of clouds and the second, wind making my cheeks red with the cold. I sat on Maulduen's forehead while Patten and Tomi sat near the base of his shoulders. Romnly dove every now and then below the clouds and back up to us, giving us info on where we were, and how close to the ocean we were. "Romnly, fly ahead and find the ship!" I yelled, and her eyes sparkled as she nodded zooming ahead of us. Patten walked up Maulduen's neck and sat next to me. 

"I wish she was big enough to carry me - I would love to fly with her." He said taking my hand in his. 

"She is growing fast though - you just need patience." I said laughing, setting my head on his shoulder. He laughed as well.

"I know, I know." We flew for around 30 minutes before Romnly came into view, roaring happily, her scales glistening with water.

/I found the ship!/ she yelled mentally, and Maulduen picked up his pace. I walked down his neck to find Tomi shivering, her arms in her tunic.

"I hope we land soon - this flying stuff is cold!" she complained.

"Romnly found the ship." I said and she perked up.

"Do you think he still feels the same way? It has been like a month sense I left." She asked worriedly. I laid a hand on her shoulder.

"There is no doubt that he would still like you!" I said, feeling Maulduen shift beneath me, starting his swift descend to the ocean. "We will be there in around 10 minutes." I said then walked back up Maulduen's neck, rubbing one of his spikes before sitting back down next to Patten.



The ship came into view, and my heart turned violently inside of my chest. I paced back and forth between Maulduen's wing joints, making sure not to go too close to the edge. Maulduen roared in a greeting to the ship, and I could hear them preparing their weapons and getting the weaker men and the women on board to safety. Emma and Patten walked down Maulduen's neck as Maulduen lowered one massive wing to the ship, keeping himself afloat with one wing. Emma looked at me and smiled reassuringly before picking me up and swinging me onto her back. She slid me down the wing, riding it like you would ride a surf board. We landed with a thump, and I looked back to see Patten descending himself on the wing. Emma sat me down and I stepped forward to the scared looking pirates. "Where is Captain?" I asked looking around until I saw John. He stepped forward, a weary look in his eyes. 

"Why are you back Tomi?" He asked sternly. I laughed, sending some of the men to fumble over their weapons. 

"Oh, it's great to see you too." 

"Tomi!" Lanna yelled, running to give me a hug. "Yo're back!" She exclaimed. I smiled nodding. 

"You didn't answer my question..." John said stepping closer; keeping his eyes on Emma and Patten who were now leaning against the side of the ship smirking. 

"We need your help." I said wrapping an arm around Lanna's waist.  

"Your going to have to talk to the captain about that." Lanna said leading me past John. 

"John's not the captain?" Lanna shook her head. "Than who is?" I asked. 

"My boyfriend! Oh! He 's so cute!" she squealed. We walked through two large oak doors to see Hutch standing there bent over a map. My heart stopped - he was dating Lanna... "Hutch? Wa' you doin' here?" She asked, and I let out a shaky breath. He looked up, looking over Lanna then his eyes found me, he straightened immediately, a hand running through his messy hair.

"Tomi!" He whispered breathless; in two steps he was around the desk, reaching out toward me, then he abruptly stopped.

"Where 's Lucas?" Lanna asked letting go of me. I stumbled back two steps, knocking into a chair. Hutch was at my side in an instance, his hands warm and strong as he helped me into the chair.

"He ran to his room." Hutch answered, though his eyes never left mine, his fingers lingering on my arms. Lanna sighed sitting in the large chair behind the desk, but Hutch stayed hunched over, looking over my face. "Tomi..." he whispered again, kneeling, setting his forehead on my shoulder. I had never seen him so vulnerable, so human before - it made my heart swell. "I thought -" He broke off picking up his head.

"It's okay." I whispered, wanting to move, but not having the strength. He searched my eyes as I searched his, looking to see if the connection we felt was still there. It was, and even stronger than before. The door opened abruptly and my eyes flew to a tall lengthy man with long blond hair drawn into a pony tail at the base of his neck.

"Lanna! You should be to safety! There are dragons!" He yelled sternly, then seeing me and Hutch, who was still in his crouched position. Hutch didn't even look up at Lucas, his eyes focused on me. "Who is this?" He asked in a chilling voice, and Hutch tensed up, his hands balling into fists.

"Lucas, this is Tomi." Hutch said, his voice just as icy. "The Queen's best friend." he added, and I watched as Lucas tilted his head to the side, eyeing me.

"Alana's best friend? I wasn't aware she had a best friend - a human at that." He said and I scoffed, making Hutch tense even more.

"Ha! As if she is a queen!" I said laying a hand on Hutch's balled fists, he let out a shaky breath.

"Ah! So Hutch is lying again I see!" and Lanna jumped out of her chair to stand in front of Lucas, giving him the stink eye.

"I wasn't talking about Alana. I was talking about High Queen Emma the Beautiful." Hutch said standing. He turned to Lucas and I saw that he stood about two inches above him.

"High queen Emma the beautiful? Isn't she dead?" I laughed again standing, and marching up to Lucas jabbed him with my pointer finger.

"As if Alana could kill Queen Emma - she is to weak." I said cocking my head to the side like he did before. "Queen Emma is the strongest person I know, and I know King Holter the Strong and High King Patten the Grandiose." I said walking around the room like I owned the place. "I can introduce her to you if you want - she rides that ginormous black dragon." Hutch eyed me suspiciously, standing on guard by the desk.

"Yet you come here looking for assistance? If your queen is as strong as you say why would she need our help?" Lucas asked smugly. I walked up to him and punched him in the jaw; Lanna squeaked in surprise.

"Are you that frickin stupid?" I said as he rubbed his face. "I can't believe John chose you to be captain!"

"You know John?"

"Ah-dur! I know almost everyone on this stinking ship." I said then looking to Hutch I said, "You should have taken the job as captain; I know you didn't think you were good enough to be captain, but you can't be much worse than him." I jabbed my thumb toward Lucas.

"You were offered Captain?" Lucas asked turning to Hutch, he nodded tightly. "Really? John wanted you as captain?" He asked. And I had enough. Taking a dagger that was laying on the desk, I stabbed Lucas in the shoulder, pushing him against the wall, digging the dagger deeper into his shoulder. He let out a surprised yelp. Growling I pushed harder. I felt hands on me, trying to pull me back, but I pushed forward, digging the edge of the dagger into the wall behind him. The door opened and Patten and Emma were standing there, eyes wide. 

"What is going on in here?" Emma asked walking forward. I dropped my hand in defeat - I could not win against Emma. 

"Nothing. I'm just taking control of this ship." I said and everyone gaped at me. 

"You can't do that!" Lanna yelled. 

"Well, I can't be much worse than your boyfriend here." I said sitting in the chair behind the desk. 

"True..." Lanna said, making me laugh. Emma stepped forward and shook hands with her before pulling the dagger out of Lucas's shoulder. 

"It's nice to meet you guys. I'm High Queen Emma." She said shaking Hutch's hand. 

"Your Queen Emma?" Lucas asked staggering to a chair at the far corner of the room, nursing his wound. 

"Yes." She replied. 

"I wasn't expecting someone so young." 

"Well, I can come back in a few years if you like - or just stay under Alana's rule." She said sitting on the edge of the desk; Lucas just stared blankly at her. Patten shook Hutch's hand. 

"King Patten, and you are?" 

"Hutch." he replied, Patten paused for a second, balled his hand into a fist then punched Hutch in his jaw. "What was that for!" He yelled rubbing his face as I jumped out of my seat reaching out toward him. 

"For leaving Tomi like that." Patten said sternly before turning to Emma and smirking, she rolled her eyes. I touched Hutch's jaw softly, moving around the desk to stand directly in front of him. He looked down at me, melting into my touch. 

"Are you okay?" I asked, brushing my thumb across the redness of his jaw. 

"Yeah, I think so. He can throw a punch though." I laughed making him crack a smile, his two different colored eyes bright.

"You can be captain, I am just doing this because he's a douche bag, but if you want it - I'll give it to you." I said which made him smile wider. 

"I don't want to be captain. You are captain now - I take your orders." He said and I laughed leaning my head against his chest, wrapping my arms around his stomach. He didn't move, just let me hug him. "I missed you." He whispered and I chuckled. 

"I was gone for only a month!" I said looking up at him. 

"I know, thats whats crazy." He said "Can I talk to you alone?" He asked after a moment. I nodded looking to my friends. 

"Can you leave us." 

"Yes captain." Lanna said smiling, dragging Lucas behind her. Emma gave me a smile before leaving, and Patten gave Hutch a stern look as he followed Emma out the door. 

"Okay, we are alone." I was about to look back up to Hutch when his lips were on mine, picking me up and setting me on the desk. 

"I'm sorry for not coming with you." He whispered when we broke the kiss, our foreheads still connected. I smiled. "I should have gone with you." 

"Yes you should have." I said. 

"I wont leave you." He said inching closer to the desk between my legs, so I had to tilt my head up to look at him. "Ever." He said. 

"For a second there, I thought you were dating Lanna again, and I was scared that you could move on that quickly." I confessed, and Hutch let out a strangled sound, drawing my attention to his pained face. 

"How could you think that?" 

"Well, if you haven't noticed yet, but I've only known you for around 3 months." I said.

"I guess." He said unsure. I took his face in my hands, forcing him to look down at me.

"Don't put yourself down Hutch - for all you knew I could have moved on just as quickly, good for you I didn't." I said bringing his face down to kiss his nose. He let out a sigh holding onto my hips.

"You need to show the crew you are now captain - you need to act like the captain." Hutch said straightening, but still holding onto my hips.

"I think I've got that covered. Lets do this." I said as he helped me onto my feet. "You're going to be my right hand man though, right?" I asked looking up at him, he nodded smiling.

"Of course, Captain." He said. I smirked pushing him playfully heading toward the doors to face my crew.
