“What?” Forest backed away, nearly tripping over his tail.
“Leave!” The other creature yelled again.
Forest focused his eyes on where the creature was laying. He was actually trapped under two large species of rock, which looked like they had been hunked out of the cave walls. “It’s alright,” Forest said to him. “I’ll help you. You’ve been in some sort of cave-in. Are you hurt?”
“This was no CAVE IN!” He roared.
Well he’s crazy, Forest thought. Of course it was a cave in. He must have been hit on the head. Forest reached out to him, but the dinosaur snapped at his talons before he could get close.
Forest lashed his tail. “I can help you.” He said firmly. “Then we’ll find a way to get you out of the Drake caves.”
“No,” the other said, his voice trembling. “You cannot help me.”
“Because you’ll get stuck too,” this creature was making no since. Forest leaped over him, pulled a chunk of rock off his tail, and tried to lift the boulder.
The other creature was shouting now, slamming his tail into the ground and scrabbling his back claws along the rocks floor. He whipped his around as much as he could to see Forest. “NO! Don’t DO THIS!”
“I’m not going to leave you here,” Forest said bravely. He slid the boulder off the dinosaurs leg, then pushed the next, freeing him. “There!” He cried with delight. “Your free!”
Seeing the dinosaurs whole body, he appeared to be a baryonyx, growling deep in his throat and glowering so hard at Forest it looked like he might explode.
“It’s coming. It coming! It’ll get you next!”
With a few chunks of rock?” Forest asked. “I can handle myself. Now let’s find you a way out of here.”
“Already know the way, know the way,” the baryonyx mumbled. “I’ll go the way. You. Leave before it comes back!”
“Alright I’ll go,” Forest said, climbing around him. “Jeeze, you sure you weren’t hit on the head?”
Then the baryonyx shrieked, loud with fear, and stumbled back with one arm stretched to point behind him.
Hi it's Anonymous! This is chapter 3 of Today We Rise. Hope you like it!
When the sun rose the next morning I was surprised to see Chicken staring at me. We made DIRECT eye contact, I was scared. Was she gonna kill me? Was she planning on killing me? I sat up, “Hi Chicken?” I patted her head and picked her up. After carefully climbing down the tree I had noticed my fire still glowing brightly still. It should have gone out a while ago…
“Freeze! Who are you?” Someone shouted from behind me. I jumped and almost threw Chicken who was squawking loudly.
“Shut that bird up now!” They snapped.
“Shh, quiet Chicken!” I whispered. She fell silent, eyes darting around.
“Who are you?” They asked again
“L-lexi,” I answered
“Lexi?” I heard footsteps approaching and soon after a tall man appeared in front of me.
“Y-yes,” I said, eyeing the bow in his hands.
“I'm Pathro,” He said, lowering the bow.
“Who's the bird?” Pathro asked
“Her name is Chicken, makes me think of home,” I blushed, now realizing how foolish her name is.
“Do you know what she is?” Pathro stepped closer, watching me closely.
“I call them dodos…”
“Dodos?” He reached out to pet Chicken who tensed and then leaned forward.
“Not very bright,” Pathro chuckled
“I figured it would be nice to have company… I didn’t think anyone else had lived on this Island,” I set Chicken on the ground.
“Isla Periculum,” Pathro said
“Isla Periculum. I named this island Isla Periculum because of all the dangerous creatures here. Periculum is the Latin word for dangerous,” He explained
We talked for a while. He told me about the other creatures here and what he had named them. The duck-billed dinosaurs were called Parasuars and the large four legged creatures were called Triceratops. There were many others he had named as well.
“Very interesting,” I mused
“Yes very,” Pathro smiled
“So… Do you have any of these creatures as pets yet?” I held Chicken in my arms.
“Yes I do, they are the only reason I have made it this far,” He put his fingers to his lips and whistled. We sat in silence, waiting for whatever he had tamed to come. Soon a tall Parasaur peeked out from behind the rocks.
“Come here Duck,” Pathro held out his hand. The Parasaur known as Duck stepped forward and lowered it's head against Pathro’s palm.
“Wow, it's so pretty,” I smiled, amazed. Duck looks like a male mallard duck, perfectly named.
“He is my travel mount,” Pathro pulled himself onto the leather saddle that sat on Duck’s back. He held his hand out to help me up. I took it, and pulled myself onto the saddle, Chicken still in hand.
“Here, Chicken can sit here,” Pathro opened a large leather sack that hung from the side of the saddle where I gladly, and gently, slid the Dodo in.
“Hold on tight!” Pathro exclaimed as Duck launched into a dead sprint.
“Woah!” I laughed, practically squeezing the life out of Pathro. As we tore across the beach sand I took in my surroundings, amazed both by the beauty of it all and how lonely this place really was. I hadn’t expected to come across Pathro, and I doubt he had expected me. Still being lonely had actually begun to feel… Lonely. I'm glad to now have a companion, who, hopefully, will allow me to stay with him. I smiled at the thought of having a friend around, I was finally gonna make it, at least I hope I'll make it…
The Psittacosaurus spends its time on beaches, eating stones and berries with their parrot-like beak. They also collect Wood, thatch, and fiber to build their nests, when survivors help them do this, they seem to become friendlier towards them.
The Psittacosaurus is quick on land and in water, it can scoop up fish with its beak and place it in baskets. On land it can pick up stones and gets lots of berries and fiber from bushes. It can also camouflage in the brush, so larger Dino’s won’t find it. They can also detect enemy players and high level Dino’s (Near max level with your server’s stats) It is a great tame to have to collect fish, get fiber, camouflage, and detect enemies. -RedPanda
My iPad is only 56% plus, I was grounded most of the day so, if it’s short, sorry..also in the last chapter I think the carno’s name was Sorow.. and moon, sorry if you think I’m copying you, I got this story thinking from you. -SpecialRaptor
Anubis looked into Fury’s yellow eyes. “Fury! Are you ok? Are you hurt?”
He said frightened and worried. “No…i’m- he saw the big carno named Sorow -AHHH!!! CARNO!” Fury yelled. “Shh, relax Fury. Look. This is Sorow. He’s nice. Right, SOROW!?” he yelled to Sorow. “Of course,” Sorow continued. “It’s my job to save people.” He said politely. “Sorow? Haven’t i…” Fury said. “(GASP) YOUR APART OF THE PROPHECY!” Fury yelled in amazement. Fury finally got up on his talons and had a great look at Sorow. “Uhhhh…” he said to Fury. “Wait…Prophecy? You know that voidwyrm named Nola? If you do…then I know about that “saving the world from this, RANDOM villain” thing.” He said. “Maybe I can show you the next dinosaur involved in the prophecy.” He said again. They wandered somewhere where therizinosaurus’s mostly come. Big stomping came towards them. “I think we should get out of the way of this brontosaurus.” Sorow said to the both of them. They started wandering somewhere away from the brontosaurus. They soon encountered a therizinosaurus. “Hello.” it said. “Um..hello?” Fury said back. “You 3 look hungry. Have you eaten?” It said back. “Yes or..at least I have.” Sorow said. “We ate when we left. But, maybe…only maybe..” Fury continued. “We CAN at least have 1 more snack..” he said finishing his sentence. “What’s your name?” Anubis said to the therizinosaurus. “Shuttle.” He said. “Shuttle? Hmmm…” Fury hissed thinking. “I also know something that Nola said about your name.” Fury said to Shuttle. “NOLA!? YOU KNOW THAT VOIDWYRM!?” Shuttle said putting his big claws up high. “Yes, we do. That means, your apart of the prophecy. You would help us “save the world” right?” Anubis asked and at the same time answered. “Yes. I would. It sounds cool anyway!” Shuttle said. “Not to me..” Fury hissed back. After a while of wandering around the island, finally, 2 velonasaurs appeared right in front of them. “Stop right there!” One male said. “ your not going ANYWHERE!” The other male said.

The orange wyvern called the two ever, saying that he didn't have much time. Achelois reluctantly followed Elpis over to the fire wyvern.
"We have to be quick, I don't have much time. I don't know what they're telling you, but not everyone out here wants to wipe you out, we just wanted peace but your Queen turned down the peace offering and captured the messenger. We all want peace, even the citizens of the swamp want it. Your Queen started a war and is a tyrannical ruler, everywhere else adolescents pick their role, and they aren't assigned one. Everywhere else no one disappears in the night because they disagree with the Queen. Everywhere else no one's fed to bugs for rebelling. You have to get out, I'd you don't you're done for. Leave tonight at moon-high and avoid patrols, if you do find the others, most of us have given up on freeing the poison wyverns, but we still exist. You'll know when you find the others." He pulled a strange-looking stone out of a pouch slung over his neck and gave it to Achelois. The stone was thin, black, and made up of small hexagons. The stone began glowing and hummed softly.
"What's happening?" She asked the wyvern. He took the stone and put it up to the base of her neck. It hummed louder and glowed brighter until it suddenly stopped.
"What in the world?" Elpis exclaimed. Achelois could just see the glint of the stone on her neck.
"How did you do that?" Achelois questioned.
"I'm not sure how it works, but it told me to find you and I did. Now leave you've been here too long finish what you're doing and leave at moon-high." He said, "Now go! A patrol will find us soon, everything you need to do will become clear."
"But we have questions!" Elpis called.
"It's too late, they coming!"
Elpis and Achelois flew away from him, Achelois pushed her bag in front of the stone, she didn't want anyone to find it.
"Did you understand any of that?" Elpis asked.
"Just that we leave at moon-high," Achelois responded.
"We don't have much longer to hunt, let's get that paraceratherium." Elpis said, "We'll discuss this at your cave tonight."
After they returned with the paraceratherium they were given their score and sent to the ceremony.
Once they arrived Elpis's mother was in the back but Achelois"s father wasn't, she wasn't surprised though, he said she looked too much like her mother for him to talk to her. At first, she was upset, but she didn't care anymore, he didn't care, so why should she?
The Queen sat on top of a massive rock and began to list names and assignments. "Elpis got..." Achelois"s heart raced, she hoped Elpis would get something good but had doubts. "... nothing, we have our first disappointment today." The Queen laughed after saying it, it made Achelois"s blood boil. "Achelois got... soldier!" Her heart dropped. "...and you in the 37th group, that means you'll have to be on the battlefield itself in just one moon." Achelois didn't know what to do, she wouldn't survive out on the battlefield. She turned to Elpis and said, "Tonight at moon-high we're leaving, we'll find the others and find out what this stone means."
"It's not like I have a future here, I'm in," Elpis responded.
Ares has been royalty all his life. He was the First Prince of the Lightning Wyvern kingdom. Getting top notch food, the best education, and training from the top-tier hunters was nothing unusual for him. Because of him being spoiled and coddled all his life, though, he became very dependent on others.
Way too dependent.
“Cleo…,” Ares groaned. “Can you get me some food?”
Ares looked to his right where he saw Cleo in the midst of quite a few trees. “I don’t have any,” Cleo said. “Why didn’t you bring any?”
Ares groaned again. “I didn’t think we would get lost out here.” He starts to sniff around for possible prey. “I knew I shouldn’t have followed you out here,” he mumbled.
Cleo sighed. “You know, we could just fly up and look for our way back.”
Ares looked at Cleo. “Why didn’t you say that in the first place?!” He flew up into the sky, Cleo closely following.
“Because,” Cleo said, “You’re too dependent on other people and you know it.”
Ares rolled his eyes.
“I was trying to get you to be independent for once,” Cleo went on. “I thought that you wouldn’t count on me to find our way out.”
“Well,” Ares said, “I’m not dumb or anything. I could find my way out of here alone.” He sticks his chin out defiantly.
Cleo smirked. “Cya, then.” She started to fly off, quickly flapping towards their home.
Ares looked at the retreating Cleo and then started to fly after her. He pulled up beside her and said, “I’ll go with you to make sure you don’t get lost.” He doesn’t meet her eye.
Cleo laughed and playfully rammed into Ares’ side. Ares feigned annoyance. “You cannot push me! I’m the First Prince! Just because we’ve been friends since birth doesn’t mean you are exempt from the rules!”
She laughed, which caused Ares to laugh and start shoving her. They go back and forth like that for a while until they reach The Royal Trench: the home where only Royal Wyverns may live.
Cleo and Ares walked into the room that served as his father’s room. Ares had only had his father as his parent ever since birth; his mother supposedly ran off one day.
“Dad?” Ares called. Empty.
Cleo said, “Let’s check the hatchery. You know he’s been in there a lot lately.”
Ares knew alright. His father had spent a lot of time with Ares’ new little step brother lately. Ares understood that babies need more attention than a 2 year old wyvern like him, but he still wished that he at least listened to Ares’ and Cleo’s daily excursions they went on.
Cleo and Ares started to walk out of his father’s room when they were met by Hiro: Ares’ father’s most trusted servant. Hiro was also the only Fjordhawk serving The King Lightning Wyvern. “Oh, hey Hiro!” Ares says. “Have you seen my dad?”
Hiro nods. Instead of his usual bright smile, though, Ares and Cleo are met by a heavy frown. “Right this way, Ares and Cleo.”
Ares hesitates; Hiro always addresses Ares by Prince. And most of the time he calls Cleo ‘Lady Cleo’, since Cleo was engaged to Ares. Cleo follows Hiro and Ares swiftly trails after them.
Instead of the hatchery like Cleo guessed, they end up in the executioner room. Ares started to freak out. He looks to Cleo and sees that she isn't going crazy, so he tries to calm down. It works until he sees his father- the King of the Lightning Wyverns- chained up.
“Dad!” He cried, trying to rush forward. Two guards held him back. “What’s going on?”
Hiro cleared his throat. “We have recently discovered that your father has secretly married another race of wyvern, which is how you were born. According to our law, this is not legal and must be punished.”
Ares stopped thrashing around. “W-what does that mean?”
Hiro grinned. “Your father and you must die. After all, you are the offspring of a forbidden marriage.” Hiro nodded at a guard, who promptly slashed a talon across Ares’ dad’s neck.
Ares looked on in horror. His father looked at him and whispered, “Run, Ares,” before he died.
Chapter 1 (there’s a prologue on allo read it first)
Caesar was a mostly dark brown mesopithicus, but with green eyes, and a darker brown back stripe, (like his namesake) due to human experimentation he had hyper intelligence. Caesar was jumping through the trees like a wraith, quickly but quietly no creature noticed him until he reached his destination, a tree near the ocean that had a terrific view, he sat there almost every morning, and ate his breakfast, tintoberries, he was watching the scenery when he saw a dodo fighting dilophosaurs, “strange” he said quietly the dodo ninja-kicked one dilo in the face, knocked it out, then leaped out of the way just before getting hit by some poison spit, the spit hit one of the other dilos in the face and it ran off. There was two more left, the dodo smiled his smile was strange, kinda creepy. Caesar found this show both amusing an interesting he wondered why this dodo was so odd. The dodo kicked one of the dilos, but it just got mad, furious in fact, the dilo was not having a great day, his breakfast had knocked out one of his minions, the other ran away after getting spat on, and now this dodo had the gaul to kick him, he was going to kill this weakling or die trying. He leapt at the dodo it leaped away only to be cornered, by the other for the first time the dodo was struck with fear. Caesar out of instinct, compassion, or pity he wasnt sure, leapt into action he fashioned a slingshot out of a twig and some old saddle leather he found, he grabbed a pebble and shot the dilo that cornered the dodo, the shot hit home, right on the back of the head, the dilo was out cold, the leader, confused looked to see where the rock came from, he looked at Caesar to late, the last thing he saw was a meso with a slingshot and a rock coming at him, the dodo was also confused until he saw the monkey, he just said “uhhh thanks” “no problem” said Caesar. “your a mighty warrior” the dodo said. “huh?” Said Caesar “your my captain now I will follow you forever”, “what?” Said Caesar. “Your my captain” he said with that creepy smile, Caesar now realized the smile was genuine happiness… he wasn’t a normal dodo for sure, “My names Ron what’s yours or should I just call you captain?” Caesar was about to answer when they heard a roar, a huge roar “what was that a rex?” Said Ron, “no so much worse…” Caesar said, the roar came again louder.. closer,“RUN” said Caesar, “hah I laugh in the face of danger!” Ron said, then he saw the dragon. A fearsome black and red beast, the roar ripped the skies apart, (figure of speech not literally) Ron then uh.. evacuated… and ran faster than Caesar had ever seen a dodo run *that’s more like a dodo* Caesar thought. The dragon snatched a megalodon from the sea and flew towards the jungle, then started breathing fire on the ground, Caesar smelled the fire and said “hurry!” Then wondered who he was talking to, Ron was way ahead, they ran until they reached Caesar’s home, (a large tree with a hole in it) Ron was already inside, and Caesar wondered how he knew that it was his house, the dragon ran out of fire and flew away, “that was close” Caesar said. “What was that Beast!” Said Ron. “the dragon” said Caesar. “What’s a dragon and how is it here?” Said Ron. “Humans” Caesar said…
-writers note- when I wrote “ripped the skies apart” autocorrect made it say “roped the skies apart” 😂 good thing I went back to edit the story -wyvernian
