Jeff woke up in a haze and soon got up with a groan. When he got up he looked around and saw that he was in the middle of nowhere. All he could see around him was a fog and he was trying to get his bearings straight. he just started walking around to see if he could find out where he was. As he was walking, he started to notice that there were no trees, no grass, no anything, just a barren wasteland with nothing but rocks and boulders. He was starting to get discouraged by the sight.
"Hello is there anyone out there!" Jeff yelled.
All he could hear was the echo from his own voice and he just got even more discouraged by it. As he was walking around trying to find if there was anyone around, he kept on getting the strange feeling that he was being watched by something or someone. He quickly turned around and looked all over the place to see if anyone was there. Pretty soo, he could see a figure in the fog and it almost looked nonhuman. As he walked closer, he could start making out the shape of a dragon with glowing eyes. The dragon looked like it was an anthro version of a dragon. He started walking backwards when he saw the eyes. The eyes had a kind of a white glow to them and Jeff was starting to get worried. He was about to make a break for it when the figure started to talk in a familiar voice.
"Jeff, is that you," the figure asked and started walking towards Jeff.
"Rachael, how did you get here," Jeff asked as he soon reaconized her.
She soon ran towards him and they both embraced in a hug and Rachael started crying. Jeff just tried to calm her down by talking to her in a soothing voice. After a few minutes of crying, Rachael calmed down enough for both of them to just start asking questions. Jeff suggested that they go over to a couple of small boulders and just sit down. When they sat down, they just looked at each other and laughed a little.
"Do you know where we are," Rachael asked.
"No I don't, I was about to ask you that same question," Jeff said.
"Do you know how we got here," Rachael asked.
"First I'd like to know where 'here' is, want to tell me how you got here," Jeff said as he looked around.
"All I rememver was fighting those dragons and when they hurt Amethyst and Zeiss, I just got angry at them and got a stabbing pain in my head and everything went black," Rachael said as she was looking at the ground.
"I saw that happen, when they were hurt, I saw you grab you head and a dark aura surrounded you and you just started attacking them savagely," Jeff said.
"You're serious, what happened next," Rachael said shocked.
"Well, the blue dragon hit you in the stomach and the green dragon delivered a devastating punch to your head, and you went out cold," Jeff said.
"That kind of stinks, do you know how you got here," Rachael said.
"All I remember is seeing the three of you get hurt, a stabbing pain in my right arm and it changing, and soon a stabbing pain in my head and a strange voice," Jeff said as he held up his right arm and Rachael just looked at his arm with her eyes wide open.
"Your arm changed into a dragon's arm, that's cool. Now what did the voice say," Rachael said as she rubbed her hand over Jeff's arm.
"The voice said that it wasn't going to hurt me, it just wanted to help protect his son's children and I go a calming sensation from it," Jeff said.
"His son's children? That's pretty weird, the only dragon children that I know of is Amethyst and Zeiss, and for weird voices, before I blacked out, I heard one also, but this one sounded cold and sinister, like the dragons that attacked us," Rachael said.
"I think the dragon's soul that's in my pendant is Arnon's father, now what did the voice say," Jeff said.
"It said that I should give into the darkness, that I would be more powerful. I just said no and that's when everything when black. As for the voice you heard, I think that you might be right," Rachael said.
"When you blacked out, did you feel anything else, because I remembered that Arnon said that he and Alvarie used their own energy on the stones," Jeff said.
"Yeah, I did feel something, right before I blacked out, I felt a calming sensation coming over me and protect me from that dark energy," Rachael said.
While they were talking, the fog started to lift some and they just looked around. Pretty soon, they noticed a dark light hovering nearby and they were wondering what it was. When they got up, they could see piercing red eyes coming from it and they both started stepping backwards from it. Rachael just grabbed Jeff's arm and said that she was scared and just wanted to get out of there. Jeff agreed and they both just started moving backwards some more. As they were backing up, they saw the black mist starting to come down towards the ground and start to take shape. It started forming a long tail with spikes on it and what looked like a long spike on the tip of its tail. The tail was about ten feet in length itself. The body started forming soon and the legs looked like it was built for a for legged movement. The claws on its paws looked so shapr that they could even cut through solid steel. After the legs and body formed with spikes on its back, the wings started to form. When they were done forming, each wing looked like they were about fourteen feet in length each with a claw on each wing. The next thing that started to form was the neck and head. When the head was done forming, it had two spikes coming from the back of its with black fur going down some of its neck. The claws and spikes of the dragon were white, while the underbelly was a dark pink. When the dragon was done forming from the mist, it was about thirty feet from snout to tail and looked female. Her eyes looked like they were blood red and could possibly pierce their very souls. She soon looked down at jeff and Rachael and just started smiling at them wickedly.
"Now why don't you be a nice dragon and give into the darknesssss," the dragon said. Rachael soon recognized the voice as her own, only more sinister.
"Jeff, she's the voice that was in my head before I blacked out," Rachael said.
"I kind of figured that and she sounds just like you," Jeff said.
"I will never give into you," Rachael yelled.
"You have no choice, ssssoner or later, I will take over," the dragon said.
"Over my dead body," Jeff said as he stepped in front of Rachael.
"You sssstay out of thissss human," the dragon said angrily.
"I'm not as much human as I am dragon," Jeff said as he held up his right arm for her to see it.
"How can thissss be possssible," the dragon said astonished.
"Easily, I have the other white stone, only this one didn't get crushed fully," Jeff said.
"No matter, I will sssstill kill you and take control of your friend," the dragon said and breathed a black fire right at them.
When the fire got to them, a white light came out of nowhere and blocked Jeff and Rachael from the attack. When the smoke cleared, Jeff and Rachael saw a white mist in front of them with glowing blue eyes. The mist soon turned into two dragons. One dragon was just pure white with what looked like blue markings all over its body and the other dragon was a dark blue with yellow markings all over its body. The white dragon looked like it was male and the blue dragon looked like it was female. They both even looked like they were bigger than the other dragon. Both dragons looked at Rachael and Jeff and smiled softly and soon looked back at the other dragon. When Jeff and Rachael saw the eyes of the two dragons, they both got a calming sensation and felt safe.
"You will not have this dragon," the white dragon said.
"Sssshe belongs to me," the evil dragon said.
"No she doesn't," the blue dragon said.
"It isss her desssstiny to sssserve the darknessss and my masssster," the evil dragon said angrily.
"Her destiny lies in her own hands and in heaven," the blue dragon said.
"Sssshe isss going to be mine," the evil dragon said and charged them.
"Not as long as we are here," the white dragon said.
Both dragons stepped in front of the other dragon and soon sent her flying backwards with one shot. She landed on her back as rocks went everywhere. She righted herself and tried attacking again but to no avail. The dragon said that she will always be there and sooner or later will take over. After she said this, her tail started to glow with a dark energy and she sent it flying towards Jeff. The other two dragons were to slow to react to it and the attack hit Jeff in his left shoulder. He went down in pain when it hit and she disappeared in a black mist and they could hear her laughing. The other two dragons turned towards Jeff and Rachael and walked to them.
"Are you two alright," the white dragon said.
"We're sorry about her attacking you," the blue dragon said.
"Yes we are alright, but can we ask you who you are, and what was that she hit me with," Jeff said as he got up holding his shoulder as a small drop of blood ran down his arm.
"We are the dragon souls that inhabited the stones that you two crushed," the blue dragon said.
"We don't know what that was she attacked you with," the white dragon said.
"But Jeff's stone wasn't fully crushed, how can he be having the same dream I am, and is he going to be alright," Rachael said.
"I was able to fuse with him during your fight with the five dragons, and it looks like he will be, his wound is already healing," the white dragon said as Jeff looked at his wound and it wasn't bleeding anymore and looked back at the dragons.
"So you must be Arnon's father, am I right," Jeff said as he pointed at the white dragon.
"You are correct, I am the soul of Arnon's foather, and this is his mother," the white dragon said as he bowed his head.
"So you were the calming sensation that I felt," Rachael said.
"Yes, as the darkness was starting to take you over, I intervened and protected you," the blue dragon said and bowed her head as well.
"What should we do now, how do we get out of here," Jeff said as he and Rachael looked around. While they were looking around, a white portal appeared in front of them and they could hear music coming from it.
"Hey I know that music," Rachael said.
"So do I, it's 'Freedom' by Michael W. Smith. My parents must be playing it," Jeff said.
"That is how you get out and back home," the white dragon said.
"Take care and we will always be here. Please tell our son that we will be watching over him as well, and one more thing Jeff," the blue dragon said as Jeff and Rachael looked over at them.
"What's that," Jeff said.
"Sometimes you just have to let it go, and don't be afraid to do it," the white dragon said.
"What does he mean by that Jeff," Rachael asked.
"I know what he means and I'll tell you all later," Jeff said.
Jeff and Rachael looked at each other and then at the portal. They soon held hands, said goodbye to the dragons and walked through the portal. When they did, all they could see was a white light. Jeff soon started opening his eyes and saw that he was lying in his bed in his bedroom. He noticed that his radio was playing as well. He looked around some and noticed that Zeiss was lying on his stomach. He could feel Zeiss's breathing and could hear it as well. He just smiled softly and just pats his head some. Zeiss woke up from this and slowly lifted his head some and looked around some. When he saw Jeff looking at him, Zeiss just smiled and started crying some. Jeff just hugged him some and laughed softly. After Jeff Hugged Zeiss, he got off the bed so Jeff could get up. When Jeff sat up, he noticed Tommy and Paul sleeping on the floor. He looked at his alarm clock and saw that it was 7:00 in the morning. He was wondering how long he and Rachael were out. He soon looked at his right arm and saw that it was wrapped in bandages along with his shoulder and chest. He then looked at his left shoulder and noticed a small bandage where he was hit with that strange attack by the dark dragon in the dream he had. He guessed that his parents called the family doctor out and he wrapped his right arm for him when he goes into town and fixed his wound. He just got up and smiled some as he walked over to his window and opened it as quietly as possible. He also noticed that he was sore all over as he was walking and grabbed one of his sleeveless white shirts and put it on. He told Zeiss to be quiet and they both left his room. When they got out of his room, they saw Rachael and Amethyst come out of the guest room quietly. When Amethyst saw Jeff, she quietly ran over to Jeff and he just knelt down and hugged her. She started crying some and Jeff said that he was going to be fine.
He soon got back up and saw Rachael standing there. They both smiled and just hugged each other as tightly as possible. When they were done, Rachael looked Jeff over and just smiled some. After she was done, they walked downstairs to the kitchen to get something to eat. They made sure that they were quiet when they went downstairs so that they wouldn't wake anybody up. Jeff asked Rachael what she wanted for breakfast and she said eggs would be fine. After Jeff made some scrambled eggs, toast, and tea, he sat down at the table with her and Amethyst and Zeiss lied down b their legs. He made a little extra for Amethyst and Zeiss and put some on two plates on the floor for them to eat. While they were eating breakfast, they just talked about what had happened to them in that dream and everyting else. They were also wondering how long they were asleep for. Jeff soon took off the bandage on his left shoulder and they were both amazed that the wound was completely healed and had some white scales on the area. While they were talking, they started to hear the others moving around frantically and could her some of them talking.
"Hey Paul, where do you think he could have gone, he couldn't have vanished into thin air," Tommy said.
"I know that, but Zeiss isn't here either, they could have gone out the window," Paul said.
"You could be right about that, but I looked out the window and there weren't any claw marks on the side left by Jeff," Tommy said.
"He probably just jumped out," Paul said.
"You are probably right about that," Tommy said.
"Hey guys, do you know where Rachael and Amethyst are, they aren't in her bed," Tina said worriedly.
"When we woke up, the bed was empty," Kim said.
"Should we tell their parents," Paul said.
"We should look around first," Tommy said.
"Hey, do you guys smell eggs cooking," Tina said.
All Jeff and Rachael could do was smile at what they heard and started laughing some. They then heard them coming down the stairs. When Tommy, Paul, and Kim same into the kitchen, they just froze when they saw Jeff and Rachael sitting at the table eating breakfast. Jeff and Rachael were just smiling at them as they took a bite of toast.
"Morning guys," Jeff said.
"Morning," Rachael said.
"You're awake," Tommy said.
"Yeah, well I couldn't sleep any with all that snoring that you two were making," Jeff said smiling as he and Rachael got up.
"Tommy, Paul, Kim, and Tina just ran over to them and hugged them as tightly as they could. Jeff and Rachael just returned the hugs and they all just started laughing some. When they were done hugging, they all sat back down. Tommy got some more scrambled eggs for everybody and soon sat down with them. Jeff and Rachael asked how long they were out and Paul said that they were out for almost three whole days. They also told them that it was Sunday and asked if Jeff and Rachael were planning on going to church later that morning and they said that they were. While they were talking, they could hear Jeff's parents starting to get up and move around. As they came downstairs, they asked what all the frantic talking was about until they saw Jeff and Rachael sitting at the table eating. They just waved at them some as Jeff got up. Jeff's mom ran over to him and hugged him and started crying. Jeff just returned the hug as his dad came over and patted him on the back and smiling some. Jeff's mom soon hugged Rachael and they just all sat backdown at the table. After about a half and hour passed, Jeff and Rachael decided to go get cleaned up and get changed. They both raced each other up the stairs to the bathroom and Rachael just laughed as she beat him to the bathroom and closed the door behind her. Jeff just laughed some when this happened and went into his bedroom. He soon remembered that the water pipes were all connected and went back downstairs into the kitchen. He was also taking the bandages off of his arm as he was coming down the stairs.
"I take it that Rachael beat you to the bathroom,"his mom said.
"Yes she did," Jeff said as he finished taking the bandages off of his chest and tossed them in the trash can. When he took them off, he noticed that he had light blue scutes on the right side of his chest.
"So what are you planning on doing," his dad said.
"Nothing," Jeff said.
"Come on Jeff, we all know that when you have that smile on your face, you're planning something," Tommy said.
"I can't get anything past you guys," Jeff said as he got a glass out of the cupboard.
"So what are you planning on doing," Paul said.
"Oh, nothing much, just this," Jeff said as he got some water from the sink and just left it running on hot water.
Soon enough, they all heard Rachael scream from the shower. Her scream sounded more like a roar when this happened and Jeff quickly turned the water off and started laughing. Paul, Tommy, Kim, and Tina all started laughing some when this happened. They quicklystopped when his parents looked at them. They soon started laughing some and Amethyst and Zeiss were wondering what was so funny. Pretty soon, they heard the bathroom door swing open.
"Jeff, you are so going to pay for that," Rachael yelled.
"Uh-oh time to go," Jeff said and made a break for the back sliding door.
As Jeff ran out the back door, Rachael came running down the stairs at full speed and got a glimpse of Jeff running outside. She gave pursuit and was laughing some while she went outside and quickly looked around for Jeff. She noticed him ducking into the barn and quickly ran towards it. When she got to the barn, she quietly walked inside to try to find Jeff. She looked around the barn to try to find out where he was hiding and had a hard time. Soon enough, she could hear laughing coming from almost everywhere and quickly looked around the barn agian.
"I know that you're in here somewhere Jeff," Rachael said.
"Hey, I know all of the hiding places in this barn," Jeff said from somewhere in the rafters.
"Sooner or later, you'll have to come down," Rachael said with a smile.
"I rather choose later," Jeff said with a laugh.
"Did you forget that I have wings," Rachael said and started flapping them.
"That I did forget," Jeff said as he stopped laughing.
Pretty soon Rachael was flying in the barn and looking all over the place again. She looked through the top part of the barn first and then the rest of the barn with no luck. She was dumbfounded that she couldn't find Jeff anywhere until she heard a thud on the ground. She turned around and saw Jeff make a break for the front door of the barn. She just laughed as she landed and started running after Jeff again. He started laughing again as he ran inside the house and up the stairs. When Rachael got inside, she looked around the house and Kim just pointed towards the staris and Rachael quickly ran up them. She was disappointed when she found out that Jeff was already in the bathroom and the door was locked. She soon got an idea of how to get back at Jeff. She took her claw and with a click, she unlocked the bathroom door. Luckily, Jeff didn't hear her do this because the water was running and he was listening to the radio. She noticed that Jeff had his cell phone in the bathroom and just smiled at that She soon walked back downstairs smiling and had Jeff's towel behing her.
"So were you able to get back at him," Tina asked.
"What do you think," Rachael said as she pulled his towel out from behind her.
"You didn't," Kim said smiling.
"I did," Rachael said and they all started laughing.
"What about the towel that you used," Tommy said.
"Oh, I tossed that into the bedroom that I'm using," Rachael said smiling.
"How soon do you think he'll find out," Paul asked.
"Pretty soon I hope," Jeff's dad said as they heard the water turn off.
"I think we'll hear something in about three seconds," Rachael said.
After she said this , they heard the phone start to ring. Jeff's mom answered it and asked who it was.
"Hey mom, can you tell Rachael to give me my towel back please," Jeff said over the phone as everybody broke out laughing.
"Sure, I just have to wait until she stops lauging, ok," his mom said.
As soon as Rachael calmed down, she said that she would bring the towel up in a couple of minutes. Jeff said that he would like the towel now and Rachael said okay and laughed some more. As she went upstairs to give Jeff his towel back, someone started knocking on the door. Jeff's mom got up and went to answer it. When she opened the door, she was surprised that it was Stacey standing there.
"Stacey, what are you doing here, and where are Chad and the Kids?" his mom said.
"When I heard about what happened here, we came here as soon as possible. Chad and the kids are staying at a hotel right now," Stacey said.
"Well why don't you come in," his mom said.
"Thanks, hi guys," Stacey said as she came inside and looked around.
"Hi Stacey," they all said.
When Stacey saw Amethyst and Zeiss lying by the couch, she just froze where she stood. Amethyst and Zeiss just looked up at her and just smiled. They said hi to her and she asked who they were and where Jeff was. They quickly explained who Amethyst and Zeiss were and told Stacey that Jeff was upstairs getting ready for church. Pretty soon they heard Jeff and Rachael arguing some as they were coming downstairs.
"That was a cruel prank to pull Rachael," Jeff said.
"Hey you turned the water on while I was in the shower, I was only getting some payback," Rachael said.
"So why don't we call it a truce for now," Jeff said.
"Okay, just don't try to pull anything else," Rachael said.
"I can't promise that," Jeff said smiling.
When they got downstairs, they noticed Stacey sitting on the couch and said hi. When she turned around to say hi, her eyes went wide when she saw Rachael and Jeff's arm and almost fainted. After they caught her and explained about Rachael and what happened to Jeff's arm, they heard someone else knocking at the door. When Jeff's mom answered it, she was surprised that it was Rachael's parents.
"Has Rachael waken up yet?" her mom asked as they came in.
They saw Rachael standing there and her mom just ran over to her and hugged her. They both started crying as Rachael returned the hug and her dad came over crying and hugged her also. After a few minutes of silence they all sat down and started asking questions of what happened. About thirty minutes later, Rachael and Jeff got done explainging what happened after they blacked out and everybody was astonished by their account.
"That kind of explaing how you got that wound on your left shoulder," Paul said.
"And how it's all healed up and has scales over it," Tina said.
"We would also like to know about those stones that the dragons wanted," Kim said.
"And what that white dragon inside of you said that you shoulc just let it go," Tommy said.
"We can get the explanation about those when we get back from church," Jeff's dad said and they all got up off the couch and went upstairs. Rachael's parents left along with Stacey and they said they would see them at church.
"Jeff, you might want to bandage up your right arm again," his mom said as she she went upstairs.
"Do I have to," Jeff groaned.
"Yes you do," his dad said as he tossed down some more bandages.
"Don't worry Jeff, I'll help you," Rachael said.
"Thanks Rachael," Jeff said.
After Rachael helped Jeff put the new bandages on, he got one of his dress shirts for church and put it on. After Jeff and Rachael got ready for church, they both decided to go see Arnon and Alvarie at their cave. When they got outside, Amethyst and Zeiss were following them and were just running around them wanting to play. After a little bit of walking, they all got to the cave where Arnon and Alvarie were staying.
"Is anyone in there," Jeff called out.
They started to hear someone moving around in the cave and some yawning. Soon enough Arnon poked his head out of the cave and looked around. As he was looking around, he soon focused on Jeff and Rachael and his eyes went wide.
"Morning Arnon," Rachael said as she waved.
"Morning," Jeff said as he waved also.
"Jeff, Rachael, is that you," Arnon said as he shook the sleep out of his eyes.
"In the flesh," Jeff said smiling.
"And the scales," Rachael said.
Arnon quickly walked out of the cave and both Jeff and Rachael ran ove rto him and hugged him and they started talking. As they were talking, Alvarie came outside and asked what all the talking was for. She soon saw Jeff and Rachael and started smiling. She started crying some as Jeff and Rachael came over to her and hugged her around the neck. After they were done crying, they just asked what happened to them and Jeff and Rachael just told the story again. After a quick review of the story, Arnon and Alvarie were amazed by what they said.
"So what did the two dragons look like," Arnon asked.
"One was white with blue markings all over him," Jeff said.
"And the other one was blue with yellow markings all over her," Rachael chimed in.
"Those two dragons sound vaguely familiar," Alvarie said as she turned her head some.
"They should, those two dragons were my parents," Arnon said and started to cry.
"They also wanted us to tell you something," Rachael said as Arnon and Alvarie looked back at them.
"What did they say," Arnon asked.
"They said that they weould be watching over you and that they love you," Jeff said.
"Thank you very much," Arnon said as a tear came out of his eye.
"You're welcome," Rachael said," and one more thing, the white dragon told Jeff that it's okay to let it go sometimes and not to be afraid of doing so, what did he mean by that?"
"We'll explain it all to you soon, I think it's just better that all of your friends should be here," Arnon said.
"Okay," Rachael said.
After they got done talking, Jeff's cell phone started ringing and Jeff answered it. When he was done talking on the phone, he said that everybody was leaving for church and he and Rachael should get going. They said goodbye to Arnon, Alvarie, Amethyst, and Zeiss and left. Jeff asked Rachael is she wanted to ride with him in his car or just fly to church. She said that she would ride with him since she didn't know where the church was yet. Since it was a convertible, she didn't have to squeeze into a small car and get uncomfortable. Jeff just laughed at that some and Rachael just punched him in the arm. He rubbed it some and just kept walking in silence. After a few minutes passed by, they got to the barn and fully opened the doors. Jeff walked inside the house to get his keys and found a little note beside them with a glove. He read the note and it said that he should probably wear it on his right hand to hide his claws. He looked at his right hand and admitted that it would be a good idea because his claws were sticking out of the bandages. He picked up the glove and looked it over. The glove almost looked like a batting glove but was different. It looked like it was made especially for his right hand and he liked the color of it. It was white all over with blue strips on it and it had some lettering on it in dark blue outlined in light blue. The words were 'Dragon Crew' and he was just smiling as he put it on. He was amazed by how it fit perfectly and his his claws.
After he put the glove on, he grabbed his sunglasses, keys, and bible and another bible for Rachael and went back outside to the barn. Rachael asked what took him so long and Jeff showed her the glove. She asked why he was wearing it and he told her that his mom wanted him to wear it so it would hide his claws. She just shrugged and hopped into the car. She was surprised that there was a hole in the bottom of the seat for her tail and Jeff just said that he made it like that in case she ever came to visit and that it had a small part that can be zipped up into it. He showed her his seat and it had a zipper on the bottom part and he did that in case he ever turned into a fully fledged dragon. Rachael just laughed at that as she got into the car. Before He started the car, they both heard something jump into the backsear with a light thud. They found out that it was Amethyst and Zeiss and they were both just smiling when they were found out.
"What are you two doing here," Jeff said.
"We wanted to go with you," Zeiss said.
"You two are not coming to church with us, now out," Jeff said.
"But we don't want to get out of the car, Uncle Jeff," Amethyst said as she started to give him the puppy dog eyes.
"Come on Jeff, they could stay in the car," Rachael said and Jeff just caved in.
"Okay, you can come, but you will have to stay in the car," Jeff said.
Both Amethyst and Zeiss started hopping with joy and Jeff told them to calm down. They did and he started up the car and left for church. When they got there, they found Paul, Tommy, Kim, and Tina waiting by the front entrance for them. They walked over as Jeff and Rachael got out of the car. When they got to the car, they noticed Amethyst and Zeiss poke their haeds out of the back seat.
"What are you those two doing here," Tommy said with a smile.
"They wanted to come along," Jeff said.
"Why didn't you just say no," Paul said.
"I did, but I was outnumbered three to one and I cave in," Jeff said.
"Has church started yet," Rachael asked.
"Not yet, you got here right on time," Tina said.
"Can you guys help me with the top," Jeff said.
"Sure," Tommy said.
Paul and Tommy helped Jeff put the top of his car up for Amethyst and Zeiss and rolled the windows down some so they could get some fresh air. After they opened the windows some and locked up the car, they went into church. When they got into church, they saw Matt, Jake, Katie, and Amber waiting for them. Tommy said that they hadn't told them that Jeff and Rachael were awake yet. Jeff and Rachael just smiled at that and started walking towards them. Jeff decided to use one of his fake voices to trick them.
"Excuse me, my girlfriend and I are new here, can you tell us where the main part of the church is," Jeff said in one of his fake voices.
"Sure it's just straight....," Matt said as he turned around and stopped in midsentence when he saw Jeff and Rachael smiling.
Matt's jaw dropped open and his eyes went wide when he saw them and everybody just started laughing at the sight. When he got himself back together, he just grabbed Jeff and hugged him and rachael. After they were done hugging each other they started talking some. After about five minutes later, they decided to go sit down. When they walked in, they started hearing people gasp as they saw Rachael and a few cools from some others. Jeff also got some gasps because of his arm. They finally found a place to sit down and did. After a few minutes, someone started walking towards them with a smile on his face. He was about 6'3" tall with a slight build and his name was Adam. Adam was the current jerk around church and the worst part was that he wevn went to the same school as they did.
"Oh great, now we're going to hear it," Paul said with a groan.
"What's wrong?" Rachael asked.
"You remember Adam from school right," Jeff said.
"That jerk, yeah I remember him, why," Rachael said.
"Well that's him," Tommy said.
"Hi guys, I just wanted to great the new dragon to church," Adam said with a smirk.
"I'm not the new dragon around here, Adam, I just moved back here with my parents," Rachael said.
"Oh, it speaks and how do you know my name," Adam said faking being scared.
"You remember Rachael don't you, well this is her," Matt said.
"You mean that this creature is Rachael," Adam said.
"Why don't you just shut up," Rachael said as she started to get up angrily.
"Rachael, we don't need to start a scene here," Jeff said as he got up and put a hand on her shoulder. She calmed down some as she sat back down.
"You might want to listen to your boyfriend here," Adam said smiling.
"Why don't we go out to the foyer and talk," Jake said as he and Tommy grabbed each one of Adam's arms and followed Jeff.
"We'll be right back," Paul said and followed them.
When they got out to the foyer, they pusched Adam against the wall and Jeff put his hand next to Adam's head and he went nose to nose with him.
"What are you going to do to me," Adam said.
"Nothing much, but you're probably wondering why I've been wearing these sunglasses for so long," Jeff said.
"Yeah, everybody wants to know why you always wear those sunglasses. I also want to know why you're wearing those bandages and that glove on your arm," Adam said.
"Well why don't you just show him Jeff," Tommy said.
"Okay," Jeff said. as he backed up.
After Jeff backed up some, he took his glove off and started taking the bandage off of his hand. Adam's eyes just went wide when he saw claws and scales underneath the bandage and just looked back up at Jeff. He soon took off his sunglasses and Adam's eyes just went wider. Jeff than put his right hand beside Adam's head as Adam looked at it and then looked back at Jeff.
"This is why I had to wear these sunglasses everyday for seven years and why I have to wear these bandages on my arm. Now are you going to leave Rachael alone," Jeff said with a low draconic growl.
"B...b....but that's not possible, how did this happen," Adam said, half scared out of his mind.
"Long story," Jeff said as he backed up again and started wrapping his hand again.
"You're a freak, you're all freaks," Adam said as he quickly walked back to the main part of the church.
"You think he'll keep this quiet," Tommy said as he looked at Adam.
"Probably not," Jeff said as he finished wrapping his hand and put his glove and sunglasses back on.
"Did you really have to do that growling thing, it kind of scared me some. By the way, that's a cool glove Jeff, where did you get it," Matt said.
"Sorry about that, I just wanted to scare him some. As for the glove, it was sitting next to my keys with a note from my mom, I think she made it for me," Jeff said smiling.
"I like the dragon crew logo on it,do you thinkyour mom can make some more," Jake said.
"I think so, I just have to ask her," Jeff said.
"That's cool; I think we should be getting back in there now. The music is starting," Paut said.
"What's up with Adam," a voiced said from behind them.
"It looked like he was scared half to death," another voice said.
Jeff and the others turned around to find out that it was Russ and Harry. They were both Rachael's cousins and they were both smiling. Jeff started smiling again when he saw them and started shaking hands.
"What are you two doing here?" Jeff said.
"Well, we just got back from vacation last week and found out what happened from out aunt and uncle when we went to visit them a couple days ago. They also called us about the two of you waking up and we wanted to surprise you guys," Harry said.
"Who are these two?" Matt asked.
"Oh, sorry about that, I'm Russ and this is Harry, we're Rachael's cousins," Russ said.
"They're also twins," Tommy said.
They all shook hands and started to walk back inside and stood with the girls and just started singing.
