Chapter 11

Jake carried Amy down to the spare bedroom in the shop. Fu ran to get a healing potion.

"Is she gonna be okay?" Asked Trixie.

Lao sighed. "Let's hope so."

Two hours later, Amy was still unconscious. Jake was getting choked up.

"Gramps, what if she doesn't make it?" Jake asked sadly. "I don't know if I can live without her."

LS put a comforting hand on Jakes' shoulder. "It will be alright, young one. Amy made a really great sacrifice. Chances are she'll make it."

Amy finally stirred the next day.

"Amy!" Jake exclaimed happily. He hugged his love gently.

"Hey." Amy replied weakly. She could feel her life slowly ebbing away.

"Why did you do that?" Jake asked in disbelief and sadness. "It should've been me!"

Amy sighed. "Because I love you." She said simply. "I have only you, and my friends to live for. I have no parents, or any other family."

Jake shook his head. "Amy..."

Amy took Jakes' hand. "Look, you are the best first boyfriend a girl could ask for. But you have to let me do this. By dying for you, I put some sort of protection. The Dark dragon can't kill you. You have to kill him."

Jake sighed. She had a point, but still. "I love you."

"I love you, too." Amy stopped breathing. Her eyes were still open. Jake broke down and cried while holding Amys' hand. Lao Shi came in, saw that Amy passed on and sighed sadly. He walked over and closed Amys' eyes.

"See you in the next life, young dragon,"
