Ember And The Black Ring 4: The Sandy CityEmber And The Black Ring 4: The Sandy City by Ddraigtanto
Daylight poured into Ember's bedroom as another day of unusually good weather beckoned. She and Flame had been woken by her mother that morning, leaving Ember a little dazed after her dream the night before...
They tucked into a warm, cooked breakfast in the family dining hall; a rich meal of sausages, bacon, eggs and potatoes, washed down with hot mugs of milky tea; it was a blander dish than Flame was used to, but he had grown accustomed to the food Ember ate, and was polite enough to eat it without quarrel.
"So, what do you two little ones plan to do today?" Sasha asked the pair over that breakfast. "It's a wonderfully bright day."
"I know." Ember responded, she smiled but she was otherwise distracted by the dream of the night before. "...I'm thinking of going down to the beach. It's pretty quiet normally, and it would be quite fun to play with Flame, don't ya think Flame?"
The red dragon nodded. "Yeah. The water's a bit chilly, but it'd be cool anyway. We could do some fishi

Ddraig lay back on her seat aboard the jet as she sighed, smoothing the red silk of her dress over the growing lump within her belly. She was worried, as she had a right to be: In the space of a night, her war had grown even more brutal and bloody than before, Long'Li wanted vengeance, he demanded fire and bloodshed in his rage for the kidnapping of his son, Scandinavia would burn if he had his way; what's more, Cynder hadn't slept in nearly two days now, she'd gone into something of a manic state ever since the confrontation in the Emperor's trophy hall; to top it all off, her dear daughter Eve had wounded herself back in Avalar: Everything seemed to be going wrong...
The only thing which balanced out her fear was her excitement, she was going home! She'd be able to see her family again, see Greywater again; she really needed him right now, her heart was heavy and the stresses of her job mounting: Part of her had forgotten just how she used to

Flame's first day on St. Kilda with Ember had been great for the both of them, but now they had worn themselves out, and sleep beckoned. When Flame set his joking manner aside and acted with more maturity, he had leaned much from his father, and was a very chivalrous dragon towards his girlfriend: Curling up around her with a wing over Ember's back when she slept, keeping her warm through the Scottish night.
Ember herself slept very happily: Good dreams visited her in her rest...
Oh, what a fine day it was! What a glorious princess Ember made, and a fine castle she lived within. A long, flowing pink dress clung warmly to her body as she skipped merrily down the corridors of her palace, the sunlight flooding through great, arched windows.
This avid, bubbling, carefree happiness sent a comforting glowing thaw through Ember which warmed her right down to the inner circles of her soul; such joy could only come from one part of h
