Crystal had an idea. "What if we go up the entranceway, but we can dig our claws into the metal. Wouldn't that work? Climbing?" She waited for Snowfall to reply. "It might . . . I should go first. You have claws of Ice, but it would be bad if I couldn't . . ." She trailed of, waiting for Crystal to come up with something else. "If I went first, I could make a place for you to climb up." Snowfall nodded. "We need to try."
Crystal had to attempt a few times to get her head in the hole in the cieling, trial and error. But she got in. "It's hard. It must be dragon proof." She tried again, succeading. "Did the first." She did it again, making a larger dent in the wall. Again and again until she got out. But when she got out, all of the dragons where gone. Had Lizard said that I was somewhere else? Where they putting him in the areana? "We need to hurry. Dragons can come any second." Snowfall hurried up the claw made ladder. "Where do we go now?" Crystal replied quick. "We need to find Lizard. He could be at the Palace. Or at Seastone Mountain. Or . . . ." He could have gone back to the desert. He probebly didn't want to be any part of this.
"I know what I need to do." Said Crystal fiercely. She had set aside all other thoughts. "I need to take the throne. And become queen."
"What! You can't take the throne! Your kidding!" Crystal ignored Snowfall and walked on. "This is the way for peace. This is the only way that this can stop. No body will have to die under anyone's talons anymore. Once I win the duel." She started flying. Snowfall's face was filled with disbelief. "You . . . you . . ." Crystal interupted her. "Take the throne? Die? Even if I die, I would to make peace between all dragons and to do whats right. I was trying to do the right thing." She flew faster, and it started to storm. Her mother knew she couldn't stop her. And she was right.
In a few minutes they arrived at the palace. "Don't worry. No doupt I will win." She bolted into the palace room where the queen sat. She bravly walked up to the queen, and the room fell silent. "Queen of all dragons, I challenge you to a knock out duel."
Suprized murmers came from all around the room, things like "I can see her as queen" and "Isn't that Crystal! Attack her!" But nothing happened. "Well, well, well. Look who is here to take all my glory, it's Crystal, the murderer. Remember 19 years ago when you ran away in fright? Right before school? Well, we will see if a spark of a dragon can beet the all mighty queen Iceon!" The murmurs stopped. "Meet me at the areana. We will have out knock out fight there." It was hard for everone in the room to comprehend what was happening, it was new to them for a traiter to dare come back. They got to the areana, with no fear or mercy painted on eather of thier faces. Snowfall calmed herself down by thinking thoughts like "It's only to see who knocks the other one out first. No killing involved." While the other side of her brain said "You can't let her do this! Fly! Run! Fight!" But the rest of the croud watched intently as the dragons stared and walked in circles, facing eachother on eather side, waiting for the other to dare jump at each other.
The anouncer stood at his raised podium. "Let the knock out fight start in 3, 2, . . . ." Silence fell on the croud as large amounts of wing beats came flying to the areana. They where the dragons . . . from the underground prison. "Attckers!" Yelled the announcer. The croud of dragons quickly flew out of the seats, while Crystal and Iceon ignored them. Iceon was the first to attack. She bolted after Cystal, but managed to jump out of the way. Iceon ran into the wall, momentarily pain took over her body. She got up, but Crystal was already charging after her. She slammed into the front part of her body. The hord of dragons came closer. They where almost at the areana. Iceon got up and charged at Crystal once again, only Iceon was too fast for Crystal to react. The dragons landed outside of the areana. They where clearly coming for Iceon. They glared at her as they broke in the top of the areana. But they still fought through the dragons trying to get in. Crystal got up and smashed her tail into her head, making her dizzy for a moment. She got back into reality and started striking at her chest. Crystal quickly backed up as the dragons filled up the areana. They flew in circle around the sides saying "Queen Iceon, your going to pay." and things like that. Iceon charged after Crystal, them both ignoring the 100 or so dragons that filled the place. Crystal got up, knowing what to do. "Your also going to pay. Because I am going to be queen!" She roared as she quickly bolted at her but it wasn't her that knocked her out . . . . it was Lizard.
