Ominous footsteps echoed down the hall and a long sigh was emitted from the irked survivor. “Idiot otter, IDIOT!” He yelled. He narrowed his eye and groaned. “You, bring me the practice targets, OTTER SIZE!” He demanded to another survivor. “Yes sir! Yes, yes, otter size, and do you want your eye patch washed?” The survivor asked timidly. “Yes, NOW! You lazy survivors don’t even listen to me. I NEED TO KILL THAT STUPID OTTER!” He yelled. Later, Aurora was practicing her sword fighting with reef on survivor targets and Squirrely had brought in the armor the survivors usually wore. It was good for practice and for seeing flaws in the armor. “Take that, And that! Hah! Fall survivor fall, and feel the otter wrath! Haha.” Laughed Aurora. Reef looked over with a smile and then smited his own target. “We make a pretty good team yknow?” Said Reef. He missed Shelly horribly but Aurora was like a replacement. Not better or worse of course, but she was so funny and kind and similar to him. “I can’t wait to rematch that Dimorph brain of a survivor.” “You would get him good, maybe poke out his other remaining eye!” Said Reef. Squirrely and Lord don’t think I can with my stupid leg, I didn’t even like that leg! It always made me trip.” Said Aurora. Reef laughed and peered through the peephole in the training room. “Well, it doesn’t look like there’s anyone standing in your way…” Said Reef slyly. “Well, we shouldn’t stand around, let’s go!” So they jumped through the window, hopped on their archropetex and flew to the Red Obelisk. “There it is, the one eyed survivors house.” Said Aurora pointing down. “Let’s drop in for a visit.” Reef knocked on the wooden door and waited. A scrawny looking survivor opened the door and glared at them. “I’m calling security if you move a muscle. What do you vermin want.” “Ahem, we need to speak to, what’s his name who lost an eye that wears the fancy clothes. Also, vermin usually concludes to ants, roaches, beetles, rats and such. Otters aren’t usually included…” “SIR!! THE VERMIN OTTER NEED YOU FOR SOMETHING!” The survivor yelled to the hallway. “Uh i believe I clarified that otters aren’t-“ Aurora started but was stopped as the one eyed survivor appeared in the doorway. “Come for a rematch aye?” The two met on the battlefield and stared at each other. “Thanks.” Aurora said. “For what?” “For getting rid of my leg, it tripped me too much anyway.” And she suddenly darted out and slashed her sword at his wrist where the glove started. “Ah! You devilish otters aren’t even skilled with swords.” He said as the blood slowly seeped down his arm. He swiped and missed countless times Aurora slowly making gashes all over his body, she didn’t want to kill him, just to make him surrender. Climbing up to his shoulder swiftly knocking his sword out of his hand and out of reach she pointed her sword at his throat. “Don’t move a muscle or I’m gonna have your head detached from your neck. “You got me, I’m all out…” he said slowly and then sneered. Aurora was jumped by a Troodon knocking her off his shoulder. “Guess who’s on top now.” The survivor said grinning. “You dirty cheater, this isn’t over.” Said Aurora still fierce. Then the Troodon bit her stomach and she stopped breathing.
-Squirrely For the otters, They might be small, but asking for a fight you might wanna stall.
Reef ran over to the limp body as the survivor passed by the Troodon gone from sight. “You, you che- Cheated!” Reef said tears popping into his eyes. “I did, but do you think anyone would listen to you? A helpless little otter.” He walked away and Reef glared at him with burning anger. Turning to Auroras soft and relaxed face, the tears came even more. “No, NO! No you can’t, cant.. can’t be…” Reef stuttered too shocked, for his best friend to be gone, the thing pushing him forward in the war.
“AURORA WAKE UP! DONT BE GONE FROM ME! YOU CANT LEAVE ME NOW! PLEASE! Please… NO!” He screamed, tears streaming down his cheeks down his neck. He picked up her body and went to the Archies, slowly setting her beside him and he took off with Auroras mount following. He went to the oasis and knocked on the door to Squirrelys house. He looked down at his arms when they came to the door and Reefs tears came even more. “Reef! Reef don’t go, it will be ok, just don’t!” The lord of otters tried to stop him but he ran to his archy and flew away. Squirrely put her hand on his shoulder “He’s gonna come back, it’s gonna be ok.” “But why did he bring her with him?” As anger bubbled inside him he had a location he needed to get to. Later he arrived at the volcano with a determined look on his face. Staring into the bubbling lava he spoke, “Dear unicorn so noble, your name is global, so allow me to enter, and be a kind mentor.” A platform arose from the lava on it was a unicorn staring at him. “Come in, Reef.” Said the unicorn. He stepped in and they sunk into a house in the volcano. “Please, I need my friend back, she’s too good to lose.” Reef said pleadingly. “You can have her back, but it’s not free. In return, you need something that means much to you, and choose wisely, there’s no going back.” Reef thought of things that ment much to him, hardly anything, as his family was gone and Aurora was the only thing he still had. “I, I don’t have anything that means much to me? It sounds dumb but she’s all I have.. I love her.” The unicorn stared into his eyes, pleading and scared. But a little bit of hope left- All the others who came wished for money or strength. He had so much potential to help the war, and so she nodded, he hadn’t anything left he had no hope beside her. The unicorn stepped to Auroras body and pointed her horn at the bite that killed her. Stars sparked out of the wound but sure enough the wound disappeared. “I’m glad I did this for you Reef. If I didn’t and this war ended with the survivors winning I would blame myself and never forgive either. Just wait awhile, you can stay here as she needs rest to heal.” “Thankyou so much, I can’t even express my joy, Thankyou!” Reef said.
-Squirrely For the otters inside they’re quite kind, and have right intentions in their mind.
