A/N: Thank you for tolerating me this far. I feel like I'm doing a terrible job at writing now, given the fact the views of this story relatively low(If 300 is counted as low). I will still try to do my best.

By the way

Chapter 3

Do I need to explain everything to everyone? I hate explaining things that I don't even know about clearly to people. First is Dion, and then Hiccup.

"Why does everyone wants to know about things? I swear, curiosity has to been driving everyone I know to ask things about me!" I muttered.

"Uh, Ken, the only one that you know since you arrived at Berk is only me? So why..."Hiccup heard me saying that. Am I really that noticeable?

"Nevermind what I said. You can think of me as somewhat crazy sometimes. That's just the way that I think."

"Okay...' I can see that even Hiccup thinks I'm weird, that being said, I am wearing strange clothing, to him at least.

I've always thought that I was weird. Though I wasn't a social outcast like Hiccup, I'm pretty much one already. I never talk to people, I'm always nervous around them, especially strangers. The one thing that sets me apart from Hiccup is that I was accepted by many of them. Even that they used my as a topic to talk about sometimes.

I definitely have a lot of people's attention – which is one thing that I have in common with Hiccup. But unlike Hiccup, I got attention not from almost destroying the school or house,but from outstanding performances in school...You know what, scratch that. I've broken too many people's hearts already by constantly having uncontrollable tempers ad mental breakdowns...

And as usual, there's always someone who will break my line of thought.

"What are you thinking about?" Hiccup asked.

"Uh...nothing." I said.

'So, you're saying that you came through a portal thing and just...got here?"

"Yeah, pretty much."

"And exactly how did you get here?"

I shouldn't tell him, that might ruin his discovery or get me exiled from Berk. Either way, I don't want to tell him. But at the same time, I can't lie to him, it's not my thing.

I was shaking pretty badly, I don't know it's because of the cold or me, being nervous.

"You okay?' Hiccup's face looked like that he was worried about me.

'You know, just being nervous again."

"What are you exactly nervous about?"

"I...can't tell you exactly what is it about."


"Can you just stop bombarding me with questions?" I snapped.

He was speechless.

"Oh...sorry about that. I tend to get a bit...emotional sometimes."

Oh no. Now he must be thinking that I'm a weirdo of some sorts. Then again, he might not, considering who he is.

"That's okay...are you sure that you're fine?"


'So...anyway, what..." I stared at him with an annoyed face, "...nevermind then."

Man, I would never see this day coming. First, I downed a Night Fury, before setting it free again. Then, I met Ken.

He's really weird. In fact, his name is weirder than mine. Who will ever name their children after some modal verbs? I get that its spelling isn't the same but still, it's a weird sounding name.

But at the same time, it feels like that he's just like me, minus the sudden mood swings and all. It seems that he doesn't talk much. As he stutters every time I ask him something.

Which brings up to the point, why does he refuse to answer me? I mean he is nervous. He's not acting it from what I can tell. But why exactly he's not answering? The only thing I know about him is that he's from...well anywhere that's far...far away from here through a portal. But why would a portal just suddenly open at ground level? I've never seen or heard something like that before.

"Hey, it's getting late." Ken said. "Should we head back to the village?"

I nodded. Still thinking about the mysteries behind this boy.

At least he's trustworthy.

During the trip back to the village, I caught Hiccup staring into nothingness a couple of times, like he was thinking of something. Did he saw Dion flying off...no that's impossible. He flew off so fast, no one should be able to see him.

So what exactly is he thinking about? Maybe I'm still weird to him? It's probably the clothes. Yep, definitely the clothes.

"Tell you what, I'll let you borrow my clothes for a while but..."Hiccup said as we approached the back door.

"The problem is..."

"My dad's home by this time."

"Oh. This should make things a lot of more interesting."

We sneaked past through the back doors, hoping that the chief wouldn't notice me.

I managed to be quick enough to get to Hiccup's room, but Hiccup...not so much.

"Dad! Uh...uh...I have to talk to you, dad."Hiccup said.

"I need to speak with you too son." Stoick said.

I kept quiet as I over heard their conversation in Hiccup's bedroom.

"I've decided I don't wanna fight dragons!"'I think it's time you learn to fight dragons"They said at the same time.

"What?" They both said in unison.

'"You go first."

"No, you go first." Hiccup pleaded.

"Alright, you get your wish. Dragon training. You start in the morning."

"Oh man," I can imagine Hiccup's face right now."I should've gone first. Uh...cause I was thinking, you know we have a surplus of dragon fighting Vikings, but do we have enough bread-making Vikings? Or small home repairing Vikings -"He got cut off by his father.

"You'll need this." I heard Stoick passing up an ax to Hiccup.

"I don't wanna fight dragons." Oh here we go, the one-sided conversion.

"Come on. Yes you do."

"Rephrase. Dad, I can't kill dragons!"

"But you will kill dragons."

"No, I'm really very extra sure that I won't."

I sighed. Why couldn't Hiccup tell the truth already?

"It's time, Hiccup."

"Can you not hear me?"Hiccup desperately asked.

'This is serious, son!" I heard Stoick raising up his voice."When you carry this ax, you carry all of us with you. Which means you walk like us, you talk like us, you think like us. No more of...this."

"You just gestures to all of me." Hiccup said in an annoyed tone.


"This conversation is feeling very one-sided."


Hiccup sighed. "Deal."

I sighed as well.

"Good, train hard. I'll be back, probably."

"And I'll be here...maybe."

As soon as I heard the door closing, I immediately ran downstairs, with Hiccup's spared tunic and pants.

"Hiccup, why would you agree to that? You just set free a Night fury! Trust me, you can't kill a dragon...I mean, you WON'T kill a dragon." I said.

"That's what I was trying to tell my dad..."

"Yeah, but I heard that you didn't have a valid argument. You didn't bring up the main point that could support it!"

"You know what happens if I said that?" He stared at me. "I would get banished and disowned, because I just set free an enemy!"

"Oh. Let me guess. Your dad is the chief."


"Then, I'm sorry for suggesting that."

"You don't need to say sorry. You did have a point there."

"Well, anyway. let's go to bed. Maybe I could sleep besides you on the floor?"

"Sure...why not."

And so, we headed back upstairs.

When I was awake, Hiccup was already gone. I guess he already went to dragon training.

So I decided to go back to the woods to see I Dion's there or not.

The only thing I was shouting the entire time was 'Dion? Dion? You there?' .

I eventually made my way to the cove where Toothless and Hiccup meets.

Knowing that I have the ability to speak to dragons now, I asked the dragon that is constantly trying to fly out of that cove, or rather, the dragon soon-to-be-named Toothless.

'Hey, by any chance, have you seen a Night Fury above flying over you?"

"Right now, you're just mocking me,right?" He growled..

"I heard that!"I replied.

"What! A human that can understand our language?"

"Yeah, surprising, isn't it? Anyway, I'm being serious. Have you seen another Night Fury flying by?"

"No, I haven't. In fact, the only Night Fury I ever knew was gone a few moons ago."

I was going to reply to him when I heard footsteps behind me.

And that's another chapter. I've sped up quite quickly this time on writing and I'm now convinced that I'm might be getting better at this.

Also, i see that there's a gradual increase in word count per chapter over the last few chapters. This means good, right?

Anyway, please review.
