Chapter 1 – The Birth Of A Rider
The storm outside rumbled. The wind roared outside. Coby ran to the window and surveyed the valley. The wind blew things around. Coby watched as a chair from someone's porch blew over. The door slammed open and shut behind him and Coby turned to see his father slam the door shut.
"How long until the storm passes over? An hour?" Coby stared at his father waiting for his response.
"Maybe. No way of telling, the clouds are black all the way around." His father threw himself onto the couch and stayed there. Coby didn't realize to stop asking questions until he heard the snoring.
After the storm had passed Coby took up his bow and quiver and went into the Spine, a feared chain of mountains. At least it had been thirteen years ago. That's when a miracle happened. A boy by the name of Eragon had been hunting in the Spine when a dragon egg appeared. Except for the evil king Galbatorix he was the first Dragon Rider in about a hundred years.
When Coby got into the Spine he looked around for anything to catch. All of a sudden a roar of wind came rushing towards him. The wind almost blasted him off the Spine. He turned to see a green dragon coming straight towards him. He took a step back, tripped over a rock and fell backwards and everything blacked out.
When he woke up he was staring at a woman of amazing beauty. She had black hair and pointed ears. She also just seemed to give off a royal aura, not including the
fact that she was a Dragon Rider.
"Who-Who are you?" Realizing something, he looked down and almost passed out again. He was staring at the rapidly passing clouds.
"I am Arya, queen of the elves." Arya didn't even turn around when she said it.
And I am Firnen. Coby was about to ask something and the green dragon seemed to sense what he was about to ask. We are taking you to Ellesmera, the capital city of the elves.
"But why me? What is so special about me?" Coby looked around expecting an answer. He didn't get one.
When the vast forest came into sight Arya dived down and a mile later landed in the city of Ellesmera.
He saw something that almost made him pass out. On a stump was a white dragon egg. Elves kept walking up to it and putting their hands to it, but to no avail.
"That is why I brought you here. I believe you are the one this dragon is waiting for." Arya walked up to the crowd. "Clear the way! I believe I have our Rider."
"Wait. You think I can be a Rider?" Coby looked around and Arya stared at him.
"Actually yes, now get up here and touch the egg." Arya gestured to the egg.
Coby looked around and walked up to the egg. He stopped and hesitated as his hand hovered over the egg. He touched his hand to the egg and it wobbled.
"It has chosen you. It won't hatch for a little, but it chose you." Arya took the egg, wrapped it in a cloth, and handed it to Coby. Coby stared at the egg, he was a Rider.
Congratulations Rider. The dragon in that egg will finally be able to hatch. When it grows enough myself and Arya will teach you in the ways of the Rider.
"One of our elves will show you to your room. I will see you, and hopefully your dragon, in the morning." And with that Arya left along with Firnen.
Coby sat in bed and sat, staring at the egg. Then he slipped into the darkness of sleep.
When Coby woke up a small white dragon was staring at him. He snapped up and saw on his hand a silvery patch. Arya was standing in the corner of the room, Firnen had his head outside.
"So, your dragon hatched. Now come on. We'l go train."
Coby stared at the little dragon and the light shined off his scales.
"How do you like the name Diamon?" Coby watched the dragon. Then in his mind came a voice just like how Firnen did it.
That's a good name. I like it. Now are we going to find nice-elf-lady and big-green-dragon or sit here babbling?
Note: Garjzla means "Light" in the Ancient Language. Also give me some constructive criticism please, I would appreciate it.
