What would you do if you were given an opportunity to protect everyone you've ever cared about and more? What would you do in that situation, when your dream was to be able to help people without having to ask for money? I took the opportunity.

My family was proud, as was my boyfriend. Becoming a guardian at such a young age was an honor. It was a privilege.

I walked along the mountain path, a large book in my hands. It was the rulebook for the guardians, and I was reading it as I made my way to the palace. When they asked me to join, they gave me the book after I had accepted. I was to return it once I finished reading. But I was to move into the palace as soon as possible so I could join the guardians in there training.

I approached a tall palace, great in size. It was guarded by a pair of yetis. "Hello," I greeted. "I'm the new guardian, Hiccup. " I closed the book, noting the page.

The yetis nodded, opening the door for me. "Welcome," the one to the left said. I nodded my thanks and entered the building. The first was a large room, with 4 spiraling stairs. The yeti to my right began to talk, explaining the layout of the stairs. I walked up the stairs that led to my quarters, as the yeti had said.

The room I entered was already filled with what few things I thought I would need. My clothes, a laptop, and a picture of my boyfriend and my family (taken by yours truly). I Plopped on my new bed, exhausted from the long walk.

After a while, just as I was about to fall asleep, a knock came to my door. "Hello? Are you the new guardian?" a voice said from the other side. It was a stunning voice, and it would surely be attractive to any other girl.

I groaned, before sitting up, sure that my hair was everywhere. "Come in!" I said, trying to straighten it. I was definitely not presentable.

A man entered my room, with long black hair and teal eyes. He wore a purple bandana on his head and a white tunic that wasn't neatly tied. He had a dark purple, almost a violet, a pair of pants on that had a darker wrap around his waist. He wore golden earrings and had a pair of bracelets on each wrist. "You must be Esmeraldo. A pleasure," I said, reaching out my hand after I stood up from my bed.

He took my hand and kissed it gently, of which I immediately retracted it from his grasp. "Oh, many apologies. I forgot that wasn't the normal greeting from where you are from." A woman walked in behind him. She was a younger girl, most likely in her early 20's, the same as the man. She had red curly hair, and a dark green, almost black dress.

"Hello. I am Merida. You'll most likely meet Jack later, but hopefully, you won't be as stubborn as the pig head and stay here with the two of us. It'll be nice to have another girl on the team." I nodded my greeting towards her. "I'm sure you'll want some sleep after your trip, we can all chat in the morning," she said, grabbing Esmeraldo by his ear and dragging him out, gently slamming the door. I couldn't help but giggle at the scene before me.

I took a deep breathe, before taking a picture of my boyfriend and I back when we were younger out of my backpack. It was only a picture from a year ago, but it felt like a lifetime. So much had happened since I had made that armor, not just my becoming a guardian. I kissed the picture softly, hoping to see Alistair soon. It was by far my favorite picture of the two of us, as it was the closest thing I could get a picture of what was a smile.

I placed the picture on the nightstand beside my bed, and laid back down under the covers, by far ready for the adventures I thought I would have with my new team. Anxiety was overcoming me. I took a deep breath. "Let's start with breakfast, it's not like we're all jumping into some pansexual relationship after a one night stand after all," I said, laughing at my own joke.

I shook my head as if it were an etch a sketch, and pulled my covers over my head, wrapping my body around one of the pillows. It was probably the one that would end up on the other side of the room the next morning. If I slept at least.

The world was covered in a fire. It touched the brunette's skin, but to her, it felt like ice. She flinched at the feeling, her brown eyes transitioning to a silver. She took a breather and tried to call for the dragons of the world to help her extinguish the destruction. They came, but instead of trying to intake the fire, they began to attack her. Suddenly, a man appeared before her. She didn't recognize him, but somehow he felt familiar to her.

He had snow white hair, and a thin staff in his hands stopped the dragons from attacking them. He swung the hook of the staff around the two of them, without showing his face to her. The fire was extinguished. But the dragons were still there, and they were still aggressive. The jaws of a large black dragon seemed to open and shoot towards her.

I shot up out of my bed. I was drenched in sweat. I brought my knees to my chest, my breathing harsh and ragged. "It's just another dream. It's just a dream. It's just a dream," I kept repeating over and over to myself. But deep down I knew it wasn't a dream. I had never seen someone who looked like that before. It was a precognition. But I doubted it would happen.

When I finally calmed down, I pulled off the few covers that were still on my bed and looked at the position of the stars from my window. "It's almost morning," I whispered, knowing I wouldn't get any more sleep for the night. I closed my eyes, blocking out the world around me. I inhaled and exhaled through my mouth, listening for the echo so I could find my things. Still tripping over my own two feet, I got into my backpack and felt around for my staff.

It was a metal staff that I had been continuously modifying so it would be useful for many situations. So I began to modify it even more. Of course, I didn't have any plans like a normal person. Most of it I just mapped out in my head. ADHD at its finest.
