Lingering Echo; Part One

"Your world of peace won't last for long,

"Your world of peace won't last for long, Soon the Jays will sing their war song,

"Your world of peace won't last for long, Soon the Jays will sing their war song, From the first strike, a quest will arise

"Your world of peace won't last for long, Soon the Jays will sing their war song, From the first strike, a quest will arise To the place where an unknown tribe lies.

Six dragons of Topaz,

Six dragons of Topaz,

Six dragons of Topaz,

Six dragons of Topaz,

Six dragons of Topaz,

Six dragons of Topaz,

Six dragons of Topaz, But not to the eye,

Six dragons of Topaz, But not to the eye, Can save Phyrria

Six dragons of Topaz, But not to the eye, Can save Phyrria From the fall of the sky."

The words rung in Echo's mind like the distant sound of confusion in the prey center behind him as he walked down the passage to see why Fatecaller and Stargazer had made a hasty pace to the library, and why they had shouted his sister's name before bolting.

He turned a corner and immediately saw Fatecaller and Stargazer in the middle ofthe passage, seemingly talking amongst themselves, but as if they had a third member in their conversation, and Fate rarely said anything.

"That's only the first part." Star tells Fate seating herself beside Fate.

Echo waits a few moments, "What are you guys doing?" He asks them, trying to sound inquisitive, but his words came out sounding judgmental, as always, "And what was that, that thing you said, it sounded like a prophecy."

"It was," Fate told him, standing up, Star followed suite, "and we're in it."

"You mean you two, right?" Echo asked them, beginning to worry.

"No," Star told him, "She said six dragons of Topaz, but not to the eye, which means our entire winglet, excepting our Mudwing, who hasn't gotten here yet." She smirked at him, causing him to realize his state of worry.

He pushed all the messy thoughts out of his mind, and focused on the present, "So we need to gather the rest of our winglet." He said, turning around, only to come face to face with Osiris.

"Too late!" He says, as Echo notices the other two, Mistral and Lotus, standing behind him.

"Y-you shouted Anemone before you ran off, does that mean that Seawing princess did something related to your prophecy?" Mistral asked Fate, shivering.

"Anemone? My sister couldn't hurt a fly." Echo remarked, nearly sneering, but he didn't mean to.

"Echo," Star started, "Your sister was kidnapped."

"What?" Echo exclaimed, "Who took her?"

"We think it was the dragons referred to as the Jays in Fate's prophecy." Star told them, taking a seat again, Echo and Fate did the same, and soon everyone else was sitting.

"The first two lines are 'Your world of peace won't last for long, soon the Jays will sing their war song'" Fate says, "We think it means that the Jays are going to start a war with one or more of the tribes."

"Well, by having 'war song' be one of the phrases, it would be obvious." Echo says, not trying to sound snarky, but still sounding snarky.

"T-that is a good point." Mistral said, looking straight at Echo, who felt his face heat up, lucky his scales didn't show it, Echo did his best to keep a serious face, but noticed Fate and Star giving him questioning looks.

"What about the next lines?" Lotus piped in, "From the first strike, a quest will arise, to the place where an unknown tribe lies."

"Well, if the first strike was kidnapping Anemone, then we're going on a quest soon..." Osiris elaborated, shifting his feet.

"B-but what about the unknown tribe?" Mistral asked, "A-and where they are?"

"The unknown tribe might be the Jays, who we'll have to find to get Anemone back, but they might be a tribe who knows who the Jays are." Star says, glancing at Fate.

"We know that we are the 'Six Dragons of Topaz', so what does it mean by the fall of the sky?" Osiris asks

"We don't know yet..." Fate said, she made a frustrated face, as if someone wouldn't tell her something, but quickly went back to her determined one.

"So we need to figure it out from there." Echo stated, standing up, "Anemone was taken from the library, right?"

"Yea," Star said, standing as well, and the others followed suite.

"So we start there." Osiris said, turning to face the library, which was down the passage.
