Happy Thanksgiving guys! I hope you all enjoy your food!

This was a really fun story to write...I thought you guys wouldn't have liked it but I was wrong...again XD I guess I just need to feel more confident in my stories. But yeah! Thanks guys!


"Why does this always happen to me!" I yelled out loud over the shouts and yells. Crashes and breaks could be heard from under that small table. I started to cringe.

I decided if I didn't want to be humiliated, I might as well do something to stop all this madness. I crawled out from the table only to meet a bowl of soup on my face. The bowl slipped down leaving a trail of yellow soupy stuff.

"Who threw that?!" I shouted. No one answered obviously. Everyone was to busy yelling and throwing food at each other.

Astrid was still throwing everything that she could grab at the twins. The twins somehow go their hands on a slingshot and were flinging food back at her. Astrid's usual beautiful blonde hair was now coated with brown and red stains.

"Astrid!" I called, "ASTRID!"

She didn't hear me. The only response I got was a war cry. Toothless came bounding up behind me and crooned.

"I know, we need to stop this." I said to him. I closed my eyes and ran into the food mess.

I was hit EVERYWHERE. Once I was out of the war zone, I was covered in enough food for ME to be the Thanksgiving meal.

"I'm going to have to take a long bath after this." I sighed. I climbed up onto a table and yelled, "STOP!" But I guess I wasn't loud enough, "GUYS STOP!"

Toothless noticed what I was doing and he let out the loudest roar I've ever heard. That got people's attention. I'm pretty sure I heard my dad's voice too. I quickly climbed off the table.

"Out of all the immature things..." he started. I didn't hear the rest because the moment my dad stepped toward them he was suddenly hung upside down and hanging from a rope. Everyone gasped.

The twins began to slowly back away and then broke out into a run toward their hut. I face palmed and sighed. Toothless quickly cut him down and then he asked, "Who started this?!"

Astrid's face turned pink but she didn't say anything, clearly embarrassed. When my father didn't get a response he started lecturing everyone. Then he stopped and finally noticed I wasn't there.

"Where's Hiccup?" He asked, edge in his tone.

I walked out into the open. Covered in food. You wouldn't b able to tell but my cheeks were red. I looked down in shame. I felt the same way I did when my father called me out on that dragon raid when I was fifteen.

"Uh..the food tastes great." I said awkwardly. I silently slapped myself, I'm such an idiot.

My dad just raised an eyebrow. I sighed.

"Sorry dad, I didn't mean for this to happen...We were, they..." I tried to explain but what was the use? As usual, on of my ideas backfired. I just ran over to Toothless and said, "Let's go bud." Then we were off.

We were flying for about an hour when I let out a shout of frustration and collapsed on Toothless' back. I huffed and said, "Toothless...why does everyone do their own thing? I just wish they'd listen to me..."

Toothless crooned. I knew that he knew what I was thinking and I didn't have to say anything else. Hopefully by the time I get back, everyone would be gone and headed home. I wouldn't have to face all the trouble and I could just go to my hut and lock myself in there and pretend none of this ever happend.

We turned around and found everyone still there. I groaned. I prepared myself for the worst when I landed. I found that everyone was actually...cleaning up?

"Uh...what's going on?" I asked. The twins then came running up to me and wrapped their arms around my legs

"We're soo sorry!" They apologized. They continued to beg for forgiveness until I finally said I forgive you so they'd let go of me!

"Hiccup, we didn't mean for all this to happen. We know how hard you worked to make this happen," Astrid said, "so we decided to help clean!"

I looked around and everything was good as new. It looked like the food fight never even happened.

"Wow...thanks guys." I smiled. Then a rush of cold water fell on me and I turned to see Toothless holding a dripping bucket of water. He flashed his gummy smile at me then ran away.

"TOOTHLESS GET BACK HERE YOU USELESS REPTILE!" I shouted. Everyone laughed.

"Well you did need to be cleaned up too..." Astrid chuckled.

I rolled my eyes but I couldn't help but start laughing too. But still I'm going to get back at Toothless somehow...

My dad emerged from the crowd and everyone parted to give him some space. I looked up at him.

"Uh, sorry dad. I didn't really..." Then he cut me off.

"I know what yeh were trying to do." He said, "And I'm very proud of you for that. I'm impressed that yeh managed to get this done so quickly."

"Well you didn't exactly give us a warning that you were coming early..." I reminded him. He laughed.

"I know. But I knew yeh'd get it done in time." He placed a hand on my shoulder. Everyone began to cheer. I grinned.

"Wait!" Snotlout yelled, "Who won the cook-off?!"

The twins huddled together for a few minutes and whispered amongst themselves. Astrid and Snotlout waited.

"We've decided!" Tuffnut said.

"The winner is..." Ruffnut did an air drumroll.

Well. I'm just going to continue from there. After the winner announcement we all went back to eating as usual. Then we danced the night away and then as soon as it begun, the Berkians had to leave. We all said our goodbyes. I've never been so tired in my life. I crashed into bed and sighed a blissful sighed. Today didn't go how I wanted it to go, but in the end, everything turned out just fine.

With my stomach full and happy thoughts flying through my head, I fell into a deep, peaceful sleep.


The end! Hope you guys enjoyed! Chapter three of Flying On Our Own will be posted soon, and my next festive story will be The Twelve Days Of Snoggletog! I'm really excited to start that one :D

I also will have more short stories (like I'll Be Here Fore You Always) being posted too. Then after ALLL OF THAT, I'll probably be able to get more stories done. I'm planning to do some one-shots later in the future, so be ready for that too ;)

Happy Thanksgiving! Now go make/eat your food! *Drops computer and runs to dinner table*
