The Omega Timeline

Chapter 9: Nonetheless - by Ben

Part 1/2

“I think we all need to calm down!” Arianna said. All heads turned to her. She pushed her long blonde hair to the side and began to speak.

“We were all brought here against our own will, right? So, we cannot be divided. We need to find out why we’ve been brought here,” she boomed. Emerald pointed a talon at her menacingly.

“And how do we know it wasn’t one of you that schemed this? You humans are not to be trusted with your bloodthirsty, savage ways!”

“Savage? You’ve gotta be joking, you’re a freakin’ dragon! All dragons are bloodthirsty!” Neddy laughed.

“Take that back,” Emerald snarled. Neddy gulped and raised his hands in the air in surrender.

“Sorry.”

Samuel in his black graduation robes clambered out from under the kitchen sink, patting the dust off his robe. Star followed, and Sheeri backed off quickly.

“That woman is correct,” Samuel added, looking between both groups back and forth, “Think. Throughout this whole city of ups and downs, not a single one has checked this place out.”

“Except us-” Aurora replied, climbing out from the kitchen sink as well. Ruby gasped, interrupting her.

“Hee hee, look those two were hiding together!” Ruby giggled, pointing a finger at the two. Neddy chuckled in response, and Star rolled her eyes.

“Anyway, before I was so rudely interrupted, we are all the only ones who came to investigate this place. That has to be something, right? Something must have pulled us together. So, how about we start by introducing ourselves?”

“There’s no need if you’ll all be eaten,” Darkhide grinned, licking his lips (if he had lips, that is). Aragorn put his hand out to shield his family, and his medallion began to glow a deep black. The shadows that covered the palace began to grow darker, and Sheeri took notice.

“Don’t even THINK about it,” Aragorn growled.

“D-Darkhide stop it, he looks DANGEROUS,” Sheeri whispered to him. Darkhide growled.

“I want to see what a bunch of unarmed humans can do to us.”

Nova rammed her head into Darkhide’s, causing his head to fly to the right.

“That’s ENOUGH, Darkhide. These humans don’t pose a threat to us, so we shouldn’t pose a threat to them. They ended up here just as we have, probably? So, STOP.”

“Oh and what will you do about it?” Darkhide laughed. Nova’s breath became foggy, and the air in the room began to grow colder.

“I’ll freeze your face off that’s what,” Nova whispered into his ear. Darkhide blinked, and he slowly cowered into the shadows. Nova smirked.

“That’s what I thought.”

Jay pointed his finger up, and all the attention turned to him.

“You know, they say food brings everyone together… So why don’t we have a feast, get to know each other, and, ya’ know, chill?”

“Yeah, y’all. I mean there’s this giant palace thingie with anything we could ever dream of for Pete’s sake. Can’t we just take the time to enjoy it while we’re here?” Emma said with a shrug. Ruby smiled.

“Emma’s right. Let’s relax, kick back, have some fun.”

Samuel’s face lit up at the idea of fun.

“Of course. So, are we all in?”

Emerald raised her eyebrows.

“Sure. I don’t see what the issue is.”

One by one, everyone agreed with this new decree. Have as much fun as it lasted, and get to know each other some more.
