Fire's Love & Ice's Hatred.


Late blooming flowers swayed in the wind, a strong scent of Lavender and Rose wafted up her nose. "Dahlia !" called a voice in the distance. Dahlia turned around looking for where the source of the noise had come from. "Dahlia !" called the voice again. This time Dahlia spotted him, his golden wavy hair blowing slightly in the breeze and his brightly shinning blue eyes. Anthony. Dahlia began to run towards him, her eyes bright at the thought of being held in his strong arms. "Anthony !" she exclaimed as he hugged her. "How- i mean what are you doing here ?" she asked, her eyes flooded with a nervous concern. "We need to talk..." Anthony spoke softly with something like cold loathing hidden within his honey rich voice. Dahlia took a step back, shrugging off his now meaningless hug. "What would you like to talk about ?" she asked remaining completly calm, her expression was emotionless. "Dal, we can't be together anymore.. " he told her. Dahlia froze, her breathing caught in her throat as she dragged her gaze upwards, looking at Anthony's face she saw the cold hatred within his eyes. Does he hate me ? She asked herself, a question that she would normally ignore.

"Why ?" she managed to choke out. "Simple." he said, "We're mortal enemies.. " he told her. This confused Dahlia even more, "Mortal Enemies ?" she asked, her voice barely above a whisper. "Yes. Mortal Enemies. You know. Fire and Ice ?" he told her. She froze, Fire and Ice. Where have i heard that before ? She asked herself. "See, i followed you here a few days ago and that's when i met him.." he continued to explain from the beginning but Dahlia wasn't listening anymore. She continued to ponder about Fire and Ice.. Suddenly it hit her just as Anythony said his name, "Loctus" Everything became clear, Fire and Ice were the two most feared dragons. Fire had chosen her and she had been hoping for more time to prepare before Ice had chosen it's host. Anthony had stopped his explanation and was looking down at her with cold hatred. Dahlia stumbled back, her golden red eyes looking up at him flooded with anger. "Get away from here !" she practically snarled. "Alright, Dally ! I'll be back tomorrow at Sunset..." he told her, "To finish what was started years ago." he hissed menacingly. Dahlia shuddered as she watched him walk away. The sun beating down on her pale skin and although she was the Fire dragon's host she felt colder than ever.


The day was almost finished and she was terrified to even try releasing the Fire dragon. Dahlia sighed in sorrow, she was going to be killed and she couldn't do anything about it. Dahlia walked over to a comfy looking bed of flowers, moss and grass. Time to sleep, maybe the answers will come to me, she thought as she lay down. I must conquer my fear and become one with the Fire dragon, that was her last rational thought before she drifted into unconsciousness.

Towering walls of flame blazed around her. Her golden red eyes looked around, she was calmer than she had ever been before. A loud crackling sounded from behind her and she turned around in one quick movement. What she saw made her eyes widen. There, standing before her was a mighty dragon, it's eyes a bloody red, it's claws and fangs whiter than a corpse, it's scales the colour of rust and it's tail was long with a deadly sharp point. The Fire Dragon. Dahlia stood there frozen, even as the dragon stepped closer to her. "Speak child." it boomed, Dahlia swallowed. "Y-You can s-speak" she stammered nervously, her fear grabbing a solid hold on her now. "Yes. I am Flare." she said, her voice was rough and booming. "N-Nice to meet you Flare" she said. "Child, do not be afraid. You must summon me tomorrow before we perish before the claw's of my love.." she told Dahlia. Flare frowned, Dahlia backed up a little. "I am you, Dahlia, i am within you, and we are one" she told Dahlia. The Fire dragon smiled, "You will become me, and as one we shall defeat all evil !" roared Flare. Dahlia nodded, and covered her eyes as a flash of light sent her sprawling backwards blindly.

Dahlia awoke with a gasp, her eyes fluttered open. She sat up and looked around, noticing that the sun was already lowering in the sky. Dahlia rolled off the bed and brushed herself off, not bothering to change her clothes from yesterday. She slipped on her shoes and began to run. She raced towards the arranged meeting place while the sun slipped from the sky like the yolk from an cracked egg. She stopped panting lightly then sat down awaiting Anthony. She plucked at a flower pulling at the petals and letting them drift in the wind. I still love him, but he doesn't love me anymore, i am his enemy ..She thought.

Anthony had arrived and was watching her lazily, "Are you ready ?" he asked, laughing as she jumped. Dahlia turned around and stood. "Yes. I'm ready" she whispered. "Good, we shall begin." he told her. Dahlia turned and walked a little ways away from him. Then she turned and faced him as Anthony did the same. They stood there staring at eachother, her golden red eyes were filled with a longing and a love while his eyes were filled with loathing and a cold hatred. "Goodbye Dal." he called his voice being carried on the wind. Dahlia shivered as she watched what he did next. Anthony fell to the ground a scream echoed around them, and their was a loud ripping sound as his clothes were tearing from his skin. Horn's stuck along his back, and long frosty scales appeared on his arms. Dahlia could watch no longer and turned away although when she looked back their was no Anthony only a large frosty blue dragon. Dahlia shivered, Come child, summon me, you will become me and i will become you ! Dahlia nodded to herself listening to Flare's words. Dahlia screamed and fell to the ground, rusty coloured scales climbing up her arms and horns sticking along her back. Soon a large rusty coloured dragon stood in her place. "Time to rumble !" exploaded the Ice dragon. Flare's eyes were filled with love even as she looked into the Ice dragon's hate filled eyes. Then they began to advance on eachother. The battle had begun.
