Chapter 23-Rebirth and a new world
The group returned to the temple to find the chronicler and the other dragon elders waiting for them as they landed. All were so glad that they came back.
You did it Spyro! Light is beginning to shine on our land once again! exclaimed Ignitus. But Spyro and the rest of the group had trouble showing their joy.
Whats wrong? asked Volteer.
Wait, wheres Sieg!? exclaimed the chronicler.
He sacrificed himself to defeat the dark master all so he could protect us and bring peace back to the world said Spyro. The faces on the dragon elders turned grim.
This is most tragic indeed said Cyril.
He was a great worrier to the very end said Terrador. Sarah burst out crying again as Tsurugi comforted her by putting his right wing over her.
Poor Sarah, she must feel horrible after losing Sieg said Ignitus.
We managed to clear out some living space while you guys were coming back. Lets bring Sarah inside and let her rest said Terrador. Tsurugi nodded and went inside the temple with Sarah slowly.
By the way who are you three? asked Terrador.
We are Siegs friends who were also absorbed by the dark master along with Sarah and Cynder. Im sorry but we were under the dark masters control before and we might have done some bad things said Henry.
All is forgiven. Now, lets rebuild this temple said the chronicler. Everyone began to help rebuild the temple but with sadness within their hearts. Even though peace was restored the presence that Sieg brought to them was gone and the world felt a lot lonelier to them without him.
Siegs body floated in an empty void filled with no life. He couldnt move a single muscle it was as if he was frozen in time. So, this is how death feels like thought Sieg At least my friends shall live in peace. Sieg began to close his eyes and fall into a deeper darkness but the darkness was dispelled by a light. Sieg opened up his eyes and suddenly stood up in the void like he has not breathed in years.
why can I move? asked Sieg to himself.
Because Sieg I dont think your ready to die yet said a voice from behind Sieg.
its Balmung! exclaimed Sieg as he turned around to see Balmung as a shining gold dragon floating in the air by his wings.
You have done so much to bring peace back to the world Sieg all at the sacrifice of yourself that I want to give you your life back and live a happy life with Sarah said Balmung.
Really!? exclaimed Sieg as he began to cry. Balmung nodded with a smile on his face. Sieg hugged Balmung.
But you have to give up something said Balmung. Sieg moved away from Balmung and looked up at him.
What is it? asked Sieg.
You must give up your dragon slayer powers so you can live freely as a dragon said Balmung. Sieg thought about it for a second.
But what if another monster like the dark master breaks loose? asked Sieg.
Dont worry if something like that will ever arise again I will come to you and give you back your powers so you can protect your friends said Balmung. Afterwards Sieg nodded.
Then I give up my powers said Sieg with a smile. Balmung smiled back as he drew energy away from Sieg transforming him back into his dragon form.
I will send you back where all your friends are said Balmung.
Thank you my friend said Sieg as Balmung surrounded Sieg with a light which teleported him back to the world of the living.
Sarah and Tsurugi exited the temple together. Everyone took notice of their return.
Sarah are you feeling all right said Ignitus.
Yes, a little said Sarah.
She was crying the whole time we were inside said Tsurugi But she is much calmer now.
said Sarah in a whisper as tears started to form her eyes.
Sarah please dont remind yourself of him or else you will cry more said Tsurugi.
I know but I cant stop thinking of him said Sarah.
All of a sudden in the middle of things a bright golden light appeared in the middle of the area where everyone was. Everyone was stunned by its appearance. After the light dimmed they saw a black and red dragon asleep. The dragon began to wake up.
Hey everybody, how are you all doing? asked Sieg.
No way, it cant be! Sieg! exclaimed Victor as he jumped on him on him along with Henry and Tsurugi.
Ahhhh, get off of me you guys its enough that I died and then came back to life said Sieg as he pushed them off.
Oh man its so good to have you back my friend said Tsurugi.
Its great you arent under the dark masters control anymore said Sieg.
Sieg! exclaimed Spyro, Cynder, Sparx, and Hunter as they all came near him to hug him.
Whats with all the love today? laughed Sieg.
Its great to have you back Sieg said the dragon elders.
Sieg looked over at Sarah who was teary eyed while looking at Sieg.
Sarah said Sieg.
Sieg! exclaimed Sarah as she ran over to Sieg. Sieg and Sarah hugged and kissed each other.
I thought you would never return said Sarah crying as she hugged Sieg.
but Im here now arent I? asked Sieg.
Yes said Sarah. Sieg looked towards a rising sun off in the distance.
Lets rebuild this new world and live together happily till the end of time said Sieg as he and everyone else watched the sun rise upon the now peaceful world.
