I want him to train me.
Is that too much to ask?
To unleash my full potential,
Be the strongest woman of all.
He hesitates and ignores me,
No matter what I say.
But the simple fact is this,
I'm a saiyan and I'm his sister.
I don't want him to worry about me,
When we're on the battlefield.
If he will train me,
I'll have his back.
Two siblings fighting as one.

Ruth emerged from the car, followed by her family, all dressed for the special occassion.
"Um, good evening, Ruth," greeted a familiar voice.
Ruth turned to see a well-dressed Skinner approach her. She smiled.
"Hello to you too, handsome," she teased, causing him the blush.
"It's her birthday, Seymour," Sean said, placing an arm around her waist.
"Oh, that's wonderful," Skinner said. He looked over to Ruth. "Though you're becoming another year older, I must say you hardly look like you're even over thirty."
Ruth blushed. "Well, looks can be deceiving..."

Bart and Lisa huddled close to each other, as Laura looked out the peephole. Ruth approached with an intent stare, and Laura just smiled. "It's Sean."
Opening the door, Sean stepped inside and smiled at Ruth. "I came as soon as I hear... is everyone okay?"
"Oh, Sean," Ruth sighed as she raced into his arms, "it's so good to see you."
"Hey, it's Father Sean!" Bart exclaimed.
"Just Sean now," Sean chuckled.
"What?" Bart asked, confused. "What do you mean?"
Laura giggled at Bart's confused face before looking over at her mother, who smiled.

Robert Terwilliger, otherwise known as Sideshow Bob had a frown on his face as he looked up at the banner on the outside of a building that said "Springfield Gamers, Video Game Convention" on it. He sighed as he looked down. "Why did I let myself get talked into this?" he asked in a thinking out-loud way.
"Because if you said no, your only son would throw a fit." came the voice of his younger brother Cecil who was standing beside him. The two had been dragged here by their sons Gino and William who as it turned out were really into video games which the two boys played quite a lot much to their fathers dismay.
"I am never going to understand these things or our sons weird obsession with them, for that matter." Bob stated to his brother as he crossed his arms. "I doubt any parent really does." Cecil added before he started to head inside the building, with Bob following him in.
Inside there was many tables set up and areas with stands that had people on them, talking. "Egad, how do they

It had been only a day since Marge and Homer were released from prison, yet the kids felt as if they had been watching them forever.
The kids could feel the daggers even though they were a fair distance apart. Laura began to shake in fear, trying to avoid Homer's hard glare boring through her although her back was towards him. Bart held Lisa's hand protectively, as if he knew Marge would run at them and grab Lisa by force. Though the kids knew that if they ever did anything to them, the consequences awaiting them would be much worse.
Luckily, Ruth was sitting on the stoop of her home, waiting. She smiled and called to the kids.

"Do you know how much that pump cost? That is the new P-7583 'Water Hog,' it has a computerized meter that records how much water it pumps out. It's worth 15,000 dollars," his supervisor said.

"But we haven't been flying that long." Dragoness said.
"I know. They're just getting really worn out."
Dragoness and I dove down and landed on the roof of a tall building. When we got to the top of the roof, I layed on my front, like a dog. Dragoness sat on the edge.
"Aren't you worried you'll fall?" I asked.

"Oh. Heh heh. Yeah. Sorry, Dragoness."
"Besides, you should worry about yourself. You're still adjusting to your new body, right?" Dragoness asked.
"Yeah. It's hard to be a dragon when you were just turned into one." I replied.
"Don't worry. You're still young and learning. Remember when I said you'd have to grow up again? This is what I meant."

A purple dragon was walking down a dark corridor, just walking like he was in a trance. He walked for several minutes before he came upon two large doors. The doors slowly opened outward as he approached them just to slam shut the moment he passed through them sealing him in the room.
"Im awake, Im awake." Mumbled the purple dragon waking from his trance. "Wh-where am I?" He wondered looking around to see he was in a small library. There were books everywhere; on shelves, filled up tables, they were even stacked allover the floor.
"Wait, I know this place." The purple dragon realized. "This is the Chroniclers library." He was right and even though he hadnt seen the place in six years it still looked exactly the same as it did back then.
"Ah, you are correct Spyro." Said a green dragon that entered the room from seemingly out of nowhere.

Realizing there was no way to change the dragoness' mind Spyro began to use his powers to restore the world. After the light consumed his vision Spyro thought he heard Cynder's voice again but it was too quiet to make anything out of it.
As the world began to repair itself Spyro began to feel his powers drain from inside of him. He then thought of Cynder, and how she would be trapped inside the core of the earth. He sent enough power to her to teleport her away.
As Cynder stood there, watching the dragon she loved save the world, she noticed the light that he had sent to her.

Jumping too his feet he moved to the entrance of his cave, the desert outside it baked in the late afternoon sun. it was a good vantage point, from here he could see the miles of untouched sand with the occasional rock to break it up, he could also see a couple of human settlements dotted here and there, they were little more than villages and small towns. He wasnt favourable with the humans at the moment, he didnt want it to be that way but they had forced him into it.

Once at the wall they dove down and tackled the dragons on it, sparing their lives by knocking them out. Flame motioned his paw to Aden to take his team with him. Aden obeyed and led the dragons of Warfang to deal with any resistance inside the city, leaving Flame with Zachariah and his followers.

There was a large cats exhibit going on during the week - a perfect opportunity for her. She had to move fast - an exhibit this obvious would no doubt signal the Batman. Her eyes trailed across the horizon, searching for the Dark Knight and finding no sight of him. May get away with this one, Selena.
With that, she hopped down into the lobby of the museum. Her heels gave only a subtle click against the marble floor, her vision in gold as it flitted through her goggles.

He thought for a moment, and remembered his attempt to mend the world back together "Did I fail?". But at that moment there was a sound. It was a faint sound, but a sound none the less.
