Author's Notes: This is my first FanFic, so bear with me if it isn't that good, but I hope that you'll send me constructive criticism so I can better my next chapter's and other FanFic's. Much thanks goes to Fate(Cody) for reading my first FanFic's chapter and helping me edit out any errors.

First Chapter: The Sunrise


Eragon stood on the walls of the city of Feinster with Saphira as the sun rose. As the sun's light hit the city, the destruction from the battle was truly shown. Bodies were strewn everywhere. Blood and weapons covered the floors and walls of the city and it's buildings, or at least what was left of them. Even though this was a big accomplishment for the Varden, there was still much to be done before anybody had any rest.

Arya slowly walked up behind Eragon, "Are you okay? Why aren't you and Saphira with the other elves?"

"I....I needed some time alone. Saphira and I are the last free dragon and rider, and with this on my mind I just couldn't be around anybody. We came up here to think and watch the sunrise. Nowadays, we don't get to do it that often." Eragon said sadly. "I just wish we could have been there to help everyone that we have been close to that has died.

There is nothing we could've done for those that we have lost little one. It was their time for death, and no matter how much we didn't want it to happen, it did, and we must keep going, even if we feel if we can go any further. Saphira said to Eragon.

Thank you Saphira.....for everything. I'm happy to know that you're always going to be there to comfort me in my times of need, and if I didn't have you during those times, I don't know if I would be here today.

Remember we are together to the end little one.

"Eragon....I'm sorry for all that you've lost. I know it must be hard for you to deal with all these things whilst also trying to bear the burden of fighting Galbatorix and Murtagh, and then seeing those that you've slain haunt you in your dreams. But we must keep fighting. Galbatorix won't rest until he captures you and Saphira. Even though he is very powerful, so are you, and the allies that you've made will follow you wherever you go, including those who may not seem like allies." Arya said as she stopped next to him.

"Thank you Saphira and Arya."

Eragon felt a tear streak down his face. He missed the carefree times he spent with Saphira flying through the sky and over the lakes. He wished....sometimes...that none of this had ever happened. He loves Saphira and Arya with all his heart, but this is all just too much to handle.

Arya hugged Eragon and whispered to him, "We'll get through this, all of this, together. It is not only your burden, but the burden of all of the people that oppose the Empire in Alagaёsia, to rid the world of the evil tyranny of the Empire" She said as the wind blew across her face. The sun's rays warmed her as she spoke with him.

A guard stumbled up the stairs to the wall, "Lady Arya, Shadeslayer, Lady Nasuada requests your presence in her tent."

"Tell her we're on our way." Eragon told him.

"Yes sir!" He said before he turned around and ran back to the camp.

"Well time to go I guess...." Eragon said as he stood up.

I wonder what Nasauda wants now.

I can't be sure Saphira, but it can't be bad news or anything of the sort. It may just be a tiny briefing of our next move.

Well we had better not keep her waiting, you know how she gets.

Yes, but if she starts to go crazy, you can always pin her under your claw until she calms down.

There was a faint noise as Saphira chuckled to herself, Yes I suppose so little one.

"You ready?" Eragon asked Arya.

"Let's go see what she has to say." She replied.


"You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do."-----Eleanor Roosevelt

Author's Notes: Alright, I know it was short....very short, and I'm sorry, but I was on a time restraint. The next chapter will most likely be up tomorrow depending on what goes on during the day. If you have anything to say, send me an e-mail at , or PM me. Thanks!
