Author's note: This story is something I did I did one night. It's kind of like Romeo and Juliet although only Bart gets the pain in the end! This is also rated PG 13, as it contains small sex references.
Bart had missed the bus once again. He slowly dragged his feet along the sidewalk, with his heavy bag over his shoulder. It was all Nelson's fault that he missed the bus. Nelson had shoved him into his locker during lunch, and he just escaped just as the bus took off.
Bart still continued to walk down the street. He was nearly at home, but he soon came to Jessica Lovejoy's house. Jessica was out the front kicking a ball, and it hit Bart right in the face.
"Ow!" Yelled Bart. The ball bounced onto the ground, and rolled back to Jessica.
"Oh, Bart!" Jessica smiled, "What brings you here?"
"I'm just walking home, because NELSON made me miss the bus."
Jessica walked over to Bart, and held his hand.
"Would it be okay if you came inside? My parents aren't home, and..."

The band of dragons charging the city of Kennith met with heavy resistance on their way. Large fireballs flew over their heads, but none had hit their target. 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.
"Where would Meltor be?" Flame asked.
"He is a coward, never shows his face when a battle begins." Zachariah answered. "My best guess would be the throne room with the king."
"Okay, take your men and meet me there." Flame ordered. "I have someone I must see first."
"As you wish Master Flame." Zachariah replied before running off with his troops.
Once they were gone Flame turned to a recovering fire dragon and put a paw on his neck.

"She is indeed Cynder." The purple dragon replied.

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. Talons home was in a large mountain range in the desert, the cave wasnt very deep, but it was more than enough for Talon. It was deep enough to shelter him from even the worst of sandstorms, and for him to curl up warm during the cold desert nights. He spread his wings out wide, enjoyin

But the offer you've given, I shall promptly discard.
Your words are quite thoughtful, and I am well deserving,
But your current manner makes you seem so unnerving.
A man of great strength is someone I need,
Not a man of high language with compliments to feed.
He must be an Adonis in both looks and in drive
And should have his own fortune from which we can thrive
Your heart does seem big, but your body is too,
And I feel that the outside should match the inner of you
As a friend, you're an acceptable person to behold;
But as a lover? That thought makes my body grow cold.
Never have I felt that we were predesigned,
So with another is where your love must go find.
By my own words, do not feel so scarred,
But the offer you've given, I shall promptly discard.

"You gotta catch me first Luna!" Eira yelled back.
The two dragons ran through the streets in the city of Warfang, weaving in and out of the crowds professionally. Eira kept running while looking back every few seconds to see where her pursuer was. After going through a crowd of dragons she ducked under a meat stand and laid down low. After seeing Luna run by unknowingly she sighed in relief.

He went up to her, and as he came closer to her, he took note of the bruises on her back, and the gash on her head. Immediately, he got worried. His walking turned into a little jog as he got closer to her. Cynder looked up to see who was coming, and notice it was him. She turned her head away, then shifted herself to where her back was facing against Spyro.
"Go away, Spyro! I don't want you to see me like this!" she cried. It didn't work, for Spyro only got more worried about her.

His yellow underbelly looked thicker almost like battle armor. His horns were now less brittle looking and longer, making them look almost like Ignitus'. He now had musceles in those arms and legs, and his wings were strong and fully grown. None of this bothered Spyro, except the fact that Flame was an inch taller than him.
Ember on the other hand had a skinny body like Cynder's, except it was softer and not as tight. Her scales were the same bright pink like he had remembered. Her eyelashes were longer, making her look almost beautiful if not for her obsessive personality. Her paws were small and her wings were very fragile-looking. Her horns were
