I just came up with this while trying to sleep and i had to turn on my mobile and write it down What do you think? could this become a story maby?
It was a beautiful morning in the month of april, the sky was clear and the sun was shining. It was perfectly warm and you could feel a small breeze blowing in from the south. This perfect morning you could find two dragons sleeping next to eachother by a small lake. These two dragons where the one's who would change the future of this realm, but this was yet unknown for both of them. But that would soon be changed.
Abacus opened his eyes, he had had a good night of sleep and felt ready for a new day to start. He felt something warm against his side and turned to look at the dragoness sleeping beside him. He had his wing draped over her and smiled while admiring her beautiful crystal blue and gray scales, and he couldn't help but to look at her sleek form. She had curled up beside him and he found it to be verry cute. Her name was Cascade

"What's happening?" a man yelled as fiends swarmed the streets of the town, spitting and shrieking, dashing towards the fleeing people as they sought to attack and seize victims. Fire set ablaze among the houses and shops and buildings as people scattered, frightened of what was happening, of what was going on, the sudden occurrence of the attack. Was a battle being waged, using their small city as the field? They did not know, nothing was foretold, had their territory been chosen by opposing forces to cross arms and kill each other, they wondered. No it was one-sided, unopposed. This was no war, it was slaughter. Slaughter of a very cruel kind indeed. They were being attacked, and for what? There town held nothing of value the Dragons might want or seek to pillage. Yet peril struck as a huge bolt of lightning would, obliterating a section of its target in its journey to reach the ground, as fire swept and ate its way, spreading quicker than any disease could.

The town square had been full of people and festivities for the celebration of the month. The sun was setting now and the square was empty and deathly quiet. Litter was strewn about, vendors had packed up and only the tents remained. All of the towns people were down in the park awaiting the annual fireworks display. The glow from the sun gave everything a yellowish brown hue.
ilbv had been frantically packing his bags to head to the fairs, but he had been caught up in work that was long overdue. ilbv wolfed down a sandwich and made a mad dash for the door. He was off down the corridors of the town, trying to get to the park before the sun set and the fireworks began without him. "I wish I had a damn car." he muttered.
High up in the clouds, the great dragon Khael was flying over the town, he knew that everyone was further off in the park and that he would be safe from human sight if he landed down in the square to take a break as the great brown and yellow dragon

Balloch, the white dragon, turned in a low, banking dive. As the wind's whistle became a tearing, humming drone, the treetops of the marshes rose swiftly to meet him. The grassland on the western bank of the River Lea in the London Borough of Hackney became a blur of speed. The outskirts of London were ending now and the rural suburbs were spread out under him. He saw a greenly lush carpet of land and brooks. It filled the landscape before him to the skyline in all directions. Once again the intoxication of being airborne was making him feel better than conditions justified.
He had no real idea of where he was headed to, but that did not seem to disturb his cheerful feeling. He swiveled his head around to make sure nobody or nothing was following him but he saw no sign of any pursuers, no roaring jetfighters were hot on his tail nor was there any sign of the Silver Queen. It looked like he was actually getting away with what surely must be the

Pings and music came from a Macintosh computer in Chicago. The FireFox screen was riddled with over a dozen windows, most of which based around reptile keeping, internet memes, Bulbapedia, or a certain internet art site. It was all happening in a typical 'vanilla box' of an apartment: four cream-colored walls, four sections, and everything else left to its owner's devices. A black Nintendo 3DS was next to the computer, slowly being pushed so as to hatch a Pokemon egg or three.
This particular Apple owner was a rather eccentric young lady who went by Kuro. She was dressed in a simple tie-dyed green T-shirt, jean shorts, and sandals. Her shoulder-length hair had been recently streaked with blea

With Nathan absent to run errands in the city, Milotic was left in charge to watch over the house. At the moment, she was gracefully swimming in the lake to pass the time. After diving underwater for a serveral minutes to explore, she arose in a brilliant spray of water, along with her sparkling, iridescent scales. However, she became disappointed to not see Nathan present to observe her magnificence.
As the sun began to set below the horizon, Milotic gradually made her way back towards the house; feeling slightly uneasy on the inside. "It's been a long time since I've met Nathan back in that cave...And I still love him with all my heart..." she said to herself quietly. "What should I do for him...?"

I had never been more giddy, and I dont think Latias had been either. After three years of being away from each other, it was an indescribable feeling when we were together again.
I looked over at her smiling, and she shifted over and hugged me. I could feel her tears of joy flowing from her eyes onto my down.
I reached up and wiped them away as I looked into those large golden eyes. She stared back and smiled again.

I prefer to call it a choice, because I like to be different. Maybe that's why most of my friends are oftentimes five years younger than I am. Though it doesn't matter to me, I relate to them better than the popular people my age anyway.
As a nineteen year-old, I prefer video games and LEGOs to skateboards and cars. But today I'll be putting aside my electronic entertainment devices in favor of some good old fashioned quality time with Mother Nature.

Walking into the hallway with my bags packed, I hear mom and dad 'debating' at the other end of the house. I already know what it's about.

The rain that had shrouded London all night had finally broken up. Rays of sunlight sparkled between the clouds, the morning was crisp and clean. The sky above the city was filled with low-hanging pearl-colored clouds reflected in the dark waters of the pond at Buckingham Palace. A reserved oasis of tranquility amidst one of the worlds' busiest cities. The wet smell of earth and green algae rose from the garden's pond. The huge silver-scaled form of the Queen now turned dragon stirred. A luminous slit of mercury appeared and a vertical pupil dilated eagerly.
Elizabeth checked a sigh, content to let the sun glisten from her silver scales for now, she felt the lukewarm breeze of spring ruffle the membranes of her wings and tug at the frills on her head. She let her head remain on her foreclaws and dozed a bit. A nearby oak tree kept the morning sun out of her eyes, the coolness of the morning was soothing to her stiff muscles and the grass was as sof

Not too far from where the beast was flying, a pair of humans were trying to make their way home, trying to avoid the pouring rain. They were moving in and out of the archways of buildings, attempting to keep as dry as possible.

Chapter 19: Fitting In.
As I slept I began to listen for the voice to tell me something else. (I expected yet another aggravatingly mysterious quote.) But it never came. I just had my regular dreams.
When I woke up I looked over at Latias, once again she was right beside me snoozing happily. I smiled but then remembered that I hadnt had the voice tell me anything important like it usually did.
I wonder why the voice didnt appear? I thought to myself. I know I havent finished my quest. Have I?
I sat there and thought about what all I had to do. And thats when I realized that I had never actually been given a job to do. I mean, I had been shown the supposed Crystoldia a few times in a dream. But for the most part, I had basically commissioned myself to help Latias as my purpose.

The weather was finally improving after a whole week of nothing but miserable rain. The lead clouds gently opened here and there to allow sunlight to reach the rooftops of London and the curtain of morning mist slowly unwove as the city awakened. Big Ben chimed seven times, startling the flock of doves nestled in the trees of the garden at Buckingham Palace. Elizabeth awoke and stretched, the first time she'd awaken after such a shock and it all seemed no more than a bad dream. That stretch was utterly natural for one heartbeat, then she stopped and contracted and she realized again that her world had changed and she could never stretch, breathe, or move again as she did before.
They had kept her here for almost a week now, there was no way her five-story high dragon form would fit in any hospital, let alone a comfortable bed. So she lay outside in the moist grass and dirt like a wild animal, they couldn't even set up some form of shelter that would be bi

According to Alliance protocols, I'm required to keep a journal of my contact with this planet, among my thousand other duties that I'm supposed to perform while I'm here. So, might as well get started. First off, my name is Songaliana, or Song for short, a light-blue scaled, female hunter draconian. As I'm recording this, I can see the white, green, and blue covering of the planet. Green is usually good; it's an indication that there is life on the planet, at least most of the time. And there seems to be a system of lights covering said green, which is either a sign of lava, bioluminescence, or hopefully, an advanced sentient creature that has made a large system of lights.
But since this is my journal and there's still time before arrival, I might as well say why I'm here in the first place. As soon as I turned eighteen, I signed up for the "First Contact with Alien Planets Society", which sends members to unexplored planets in hopes of discovering new sentient life

Darkness starts closing in around me
Crushing air from my fragile lips.
My life has long lost a purpose
And now I just sit and stare.
People walk around me
Not giving me a glance.
They step and kick as they walk
Not hearing as I shriek.
My hands come up to my face
As the tears start to fall,
No one's ever loved me,
No one ever will.
Then a shadow crossed my path
But stopped in its mid-step
I lift my head, eyes wide,
Tears frozen on my cheeks.
A face with golden eyes appears
It's stretching out a hand.
He puts an arm around me
And tells me not to fear.
Confusion clouds my mind
As he walks me down the street.
Why would someone care for me,
Breaking through my gloom?
The sun starts its shining
As he looks at me and smiles.
It casts my fears aside,
Dark fears, buried deep inside.
This stranger soon becomes a friend
That I look to and depend.
Purpose fills my soul again
To help others, like he did.
The sun has stayed shining
Reflecting off my soul
As he brushes my soft cheek,
I know I love
EmbraceThe scene is a quaint seaside market, nestled in the centre of Slateport City. People come and go, exchanging glances, money and goods with each other, before parting ways for the rest of the day. I couldn't even recount the amount of times I'd been here, but my partner loved the place, and in all honesty, so did I. There was always a friendly face, and everyone always seemed to genuinely take an interest in what you had to say, even if it wasn't much. I had even begun to remember some of the merchants by name - Zack the vitamin seller, Jacob who ran the lemonade stand and Steven from the pharmacy to name a few. There were always new faces every time we came here, though. Kind, hurried, frustrated; even an angry pair arguing over the cost of fresh water. I'll admit that it was overwhelming the first time we came, with all the bustle and rush, everyone with their own agenda (most of them not even noting you were there), but now, I like it.
