Chapter 1: Crash and Arrival.
Disclaimer: I don't own Dinotopia or its characters. I do own Jake Scott though; I created him after all HA HA HA…….anyway on with the fic.
A black SUV came too an abrupt stop in front of a Four seated airplane. Simultaneously, the four doors opened, revealing four figures. One of them was dressed in a green vest, with a blue undershirt, and greenish-grey long shorts. He had curly darkish-brown hair, brown eyes and a cocky smile on his face.
This was Karl Scott, a twenty year old college student on vacation.
The second figure emerged from the vehicle. He had a light green shirt with, and light tan jeans. He had a shaved hairstyle, with light brown hair, blue eyes and a depressed look on his face.
This was David Scott, a twenty-year-old college student. Like his half brother Karl, he too was on vacation.
The third figure stepped from the vehicle. He has a sleeveless black shirt, blue demy jeans, and a headband with the symbol of the Rising Sun tied around his forehead. He also had a Katana strapped too his back. He had black spiked hair, brown eyes, and an excited look in his face.
This was Jake Scott, a seventeen-year-old high school student. He too was on vacation with his brother David, and half brother Karl.
The final figure emerged from the vehicle. He was the oldest of the one of them all. He wore a brown jacket with a white undershirt, black jeans, and black sunglasses. He had light brown hair that seemed to be thinning slightly; greenish-gray eyes and a confident look on his face.
This was Frank Scott, a fourty-one year old active pilot and the father of the three boys.
"I hate flying," muttered David as the four approached the winged vessel.
"It's gonna be a treat David, were going to go island hopping, and your gonna love it, I promise" responded Frank.
Enjoying teasing his half brother Karl quipped in "Let's just leave him at home Dad, he's gonna be like this all day" snickered Karl.
"I agree with Karl, I was happier reading back home" grumbled David.
"Aw c'mon David, it'll be fun" chirped Jake.
Frank casually added "Your not going too be sitting in your room all day reading David, you'll be out doing something".
The four piled into the aircraft, unaware of the fantastic, yet dangerous journey that lied ahead. The father took the pilot seat, as his favored son Karl sat next to him, while David and Jake sat in the back.
Slowly the propellers came too life as they whirled in a circular motion as the plane began to move. Faster and faster, the plane picked up speed until eventually it took off into the blue skies, unknowingly aware that it would not be returning too it's designated hanger.
For three hours, the plane soured over the Carribean sea, its four occupants watching in awe as they passed several islands. Eventually, Frank Scott took his hands from the steering controls. "That should do it," he said as he folded his arms.
"Go ahead Karl, fly the plane," he requested.
Unsure of weather he would be successful of unsuccessful in flying, Karl nervously gripped his steering controls.
Frank then added "Alright, now this is very important that you keep your air speed above a hundred and forty.
"Okay" Karl said as he started steering.
A few minutes passed and Karl could already feel himself getting use too the controls.
Despite his pounding heartbeat and nervous that he could get them all killed, he was enjoying himself. "This is so cool" Karl smiled.
Frank smiled too at his son's enthusiasm and turned too his other sons.
"He's flying the plane," Frank said.
"Yeah I see" David mumbled not really caring that his slightly older brother was getting more attention then him.
"Cool Karl" laughed Jake.
Frank then turned back too his other son and let out a small yawn. "Wake me up twenty minutes before landing" Frank muttered as he slowly succumbed too sleep.
"What" asked a slightly worried David?
"Its okay guys, I think I know what I'm doing" Karl announced.
Jake had too fight off a laughing fit as the last time Karl said that was when he tried to drive a motor boat with out any experience. It was back in Maine, when they were on vacation at a beach, Karl just practically jumped into the closest one and started driving. Basically he ended up totaling it.
"What about the motorboat incident Karl" Jake asked smugly.
Karl flushed slightly at the comment and felt a slight embracement, but regained control of his emotions.
"That time was a fluke this is different" he quickly said.
Jake rolled his eyes at this but decided to forget it as he glanced out the window.
About an hour later, Karl noticed some gray clouds, swirling ahead of him. "What's that?" he said aloud as he noticed something in it as he flew into the clouds.
"What" asked a curious David? A lightning blot then lit up the sky.
It began to rain heavily.
"That, you see that" Karl said nervously. Jake, who had been sleeping for a while awoke in time to notice the lightning blots flashing around them.
As the plane dipped further into the storm, it began to shake unsteadying.
"Wake up Dad" Karl shouted.
Frank groggily awoke from his slumber as he too noticed the storm that their winged vessel had accidentally flown threw.
"Where'd that come from?" he asked. The four then looked ahead too see a bolt nearly hit the plane. "Get your belts on," commanded Frank.
The boys quickly fastened their belts, knowing it would be little use. Suddenly, the plane slowly began too dip down, towards the crushing waves below.
"Pull up Dad, Pull up" panicked Jake.
"Shoot, I'm going to try land this thing, hang on" Frank announced.
"Were out of control," David shouted. Faster the plane dove towards the sea.
"I can't get it up, hang on" shouted Frank as sparks flew from the control.
"Dad, were" was all Jake managed too say when he noticed that they were about too hit the ocean.
Frank raised his arms in front of his face as if too shield himself.
Karl and David gripped their seats tightly. With a mighty crash, the plane hit the ocean.
The glass shattered from the impact, causing ocean water to begin too floods the cockpit. Frank ripped off his headset and glasses as he tried too undoing his seat belt, only too finding with horror that is was jammed.
"Open the door," shouted Karl. The boys struggled with their belts as the water had now completely flooded the plane.
Now underwater and with little oxygen, the family struggled too get free from their seats.
Somehow by miracle, Karl, David and Jakes belts came undone.
Karl pushed the door open, freeing himself from the plane.
Quickly acting too avoid his brother and fathers from suffering a watery grave, he reached back into the sinking plane and grabbed his brother Jake.
Jake allowed himself to be yanked from the plane as he swam like a mad man towards the surface.
David was next as he freed himself from the plane, swimming towards the surface as well. Jake gasped for air as he reached the surface.
"David, Karl, Dad" he shouted over the ragging storm, trying too keep himself above the crushing waves.
As David reached the surface Karl swam towards the still sinking plane, as Frank was still trapped in his seat.
Frank furiously gripped his seat belt, trying to force it loose. However, the crash had jammed it tight, trapping and possibly sealing his fate.
Karl swam into the plane and grabbed his Dads belt, attempting to assist in setting him free.
Frank, not wanting his son too die with him, shoved him from the plane as more and more oxygen left his lungs.
As Karl swam for air, an unknown creature stalked towards the doomed plane.
"Karl" yelled David as he swam towards his half-brother.
"David" shouted Karl as he too swam.
"Where's Dad" screamed Jake.
Karl looked away unsure and then shouted "I couldn't get him out".
"What are we gonna do now" screamed David.
"This way" Karl announced as he started swimming off in an unknown direction, his two brothers in tow.
An hour later, the storm had subsided, the bright sun shining as the boys approached an island.
Exhausted from swimming for an hour threw the ragging storm, the boys slowed down as the observed the island as they swam towards the beach.
A few mountains, a tropical looking forest, and sand. "Where are we" asked David as they started to walk through shallow waters.
"What is this place?" David asked once more.
"I don't know Davy, I don't know," responded Karl, using his half-brothers least favorite nickname.
Finally able to stand fully, the three boys trudged unsteadily, not knowing where they were going.
Almost as it they read each other's minds, they stopped walking too think about the current events that just took place.
David, weary put a hand on Karl's shoulder to support himself. "Karl, Jake what are we doing, we should have stayed with the plane" he sighed.
"We didn't have a choice David, we would have drowned" Karl protested.
"He's gone he's gone," wept Jake.
David himself felt close to tears as he muttered, "We just left him".
"I tried, there was nothing I could do" Karl argued.
Karl put a hand on David's shoulder to reassure him. "You guys, what happened happened," Karl reasoned.
"Yeah, but he's gone" Jake shouted.
"I know Jake, I feel bad too, but, were gonna have to get over it somehow" Karl sighed.
Deciding to break this up, Karl then said, "Now if we could just find some help, a phone maybe there's a chance".
With that said, the three brothers walked off in some random direction.
"Where do you think we are anyway?" David asked.
"Who knows, maybe on some inhabited island?" Jake said.
"I doubt that Jake" Karl argued.
"Hey it's possible ya know" Jake said. .
Just too prove it was inhabited, occasionally, a random call or noise was heard as they walked threw the forest.
Several hours later, the boys were waling across a great plain that was empty, except for some trees and a waterfall that lied ahead, near another forest. While walking, Jake was casually throwing some martial arts moves while moving, as he had too keep himself entertained somehow, and too keep up his training.
"Where do ya think we are" asked Jake. "I have no idea," responded an annoyed Karl.
"I don't believe this, I mean we've been walking for hours and nothing, no houses, no people, not even a road to follow" David complained.
"Let's keep going, we're bound too find something" Karl reasoned.
"As they reached the waterfall, they started hopping from rock to rock to avoid falling into the pool of water.
As they turned a corner, they were shocked at what they saw. "You see that," said a shocked David.
"Yeah, but it's unreal" awed Jake. It was a cave, or at least the inside of it looked like a cave.
While the outside of it was in the shape of a Tyrannosaurus Rex with its mouth opened, revealing jagged teeth made out of rock. "What the hell is that?" blurted Karl.
"Don't know, whatever it is, looks kina cre-"started David.
Suddenly, a loud boom echoed out of the cave, and the T-Rex shaped tunnel exploded.
Thinking they were being shot at, the boys dropped to their knees. "Sorry, sorry my apologies" came an unknown voice from the foggy rubbles of the cave.
A man emerged from the fog waving his hand to make it disappear. He appeared to be in his late thirties to early forties. He had shaggy brown hair and blue eyes. He wore a tan overcoat, a red vest, white pants, with long browns boots. He was holding a can and was limping on his left leg.
"My sincerest apologies, very inconvenient" the man said, as he spoke with a Scottish accent. "The Volcanium Council gave me permission to explore ancient sights, in hopes of finding some new sunstones, its all in order, I have the papers umm" he stopped when he noticed the three boys starting at him in bewilderment.
"Well well well, hello boys" he said friendly. He gestured back to the cave.
"Sorry, you gave me a bit of a fright there" he chortled.
"Oh ho, we gave you a fright," asked a sarcastic David.
The man eyed the three suspiciously. "Unless I'm very much mistaken you're something of a ravety huh, you just arrived," he asked.
"Uh yeah" said a curios Jake.
The man smiled at this as he took another step towards the three.
"Splendid, I knew it, newcomers" he grinned.
"So where are we exactly" asked a skeptical David.
"Oh Dinotopia, oh you'll be the talk of the place, it's not every day we get new arrivals" the man answered casually.
The three boys eyed on another at this. "Dinotopia, where is that" David asked.
Jake shrugged at this. "Listen, can I use your cell phone" Karl asked.
"What" answered the man? "You know a telephone, we need to call a coast guard right away" Karl explained.
"We were in a storm, are father, he's missing, we've gotta get some help" Jake finished.
"Oh, you'll want a postal bird, I'm afraid I can't help you their" the man replied as he moved past the boys. Not wanting to be left alone, the three followed.
"Postal bird" asked a confused David. "Postal Bird" the man repeated.
"So what were you doing up their anyway" asked Jake. "Oh just a bit of archeology" he replied.
"You're the first archeologist I've met who uses dynamite" David grinned. The man stopped and removed a canteen from his jacket.
"Well, I have a number of occupations to be honest with you, I'm something of an independent sprit which can get a man into trouble around here" he replied as he took a sip from his canteen. He then offered some too David.
"Fancy a livener" he asked. "No thanks" David replied with a wave.
Karl however was glad too take a drink as he sipped from the canteen. Handing it back to the man he stuck his hand out.
"Well for it's worth and at no extra cost, I offer you the eternal friendship of Cyrus Crabb," he said as he shook hands with the boys. "Nice too meet ya" Jake smiled.
"Well, wastin me time, this place is being picked clean with a fine tooth cone" Cyrus said bluntly as he continued walking, with the boys in tow. "You have anything you want to swap, rings watches" Cyrus asked.
The boys chose not to respond. "No, well if it's any use too you boy's I'll escort you too the Chandara bus depot, I'm catching a bus their myself in about half an hour, Fancy that" he offered. "Alright" David responded.
The adventurers walked in silence threw the forest until a curios Karl asked, "So how big is Dinotopia". "Not that big, couple hundred miles across" Cyrus said plain fully.
This shocked the boys as such a big place wasn't on any maps or atlas. "Two hundred miles, how come we've never heard of it before" Jake mumbled. "Well were a little bit cut off from the rest of the world.
One hour later, the four adventures were working there way threw tall grass. Exiting it, Karl, David and Jake were shocked at the civilization before them.
There were people, going about there business. But, they were different somehow. For one, they were dressed like they were stuck in the 1700's or 1800's.
Also the houses steamed to be made out of straw and wood. People were trading fruits, repairing homes, or just standing around talking.
"Look at this place, I mean these people" David awed. "Come along boys, don't get distracted" Cyrus urged.
Some of the people were starring at the boys for there odd clothing. "This is really" David began.
"Weird" finished Karl. "Well no it's just" David repeated. "You don't think this is weird," Karl asked.
"More like unique guys, still are these people stuck in the 1700's or something" Jake joked.
As they passed a few buildings, they noticed a few signs with strange markings on them, the markings looked like a fossil footprint of a reptile. "Look at the signs, what kinda markings is that," asked David.
"Who knows?" responded Jake. An ear-piercing screech then filled the area.
"What was that, some kinda animal" asked a nervous Karl. "Scaly talk" Cyrus said uncaring ling.
Suddenly, a scream erupted from the crowd of people behind. People panicking ran past the boys. "What's going on" said a confused Karl.
What the boys saw next was the last thing they would ever think they'd see. "What is that?" asked a shocked and yet horrified Jake. Something was smashing some of the buildings, roaring in what it appeared to be pain. Rampaging towards the boys was a dinosaur…
Nice start huh? I'll continue once some reviews come my way. Until next time, review…
