The Legend of Spyro: A Whole New World

Chapter 1: A Rainy Day

It's been a year since Spyro and Cynder defeated Malefor from starting the Great Cleansing. They later returned to Warfang, where they told Terrador, Volteer, and Cyril the bad news about Ignitus.

At the balcony, in a cold night, Spyro and Cynder were looking at the stars above the night sky with Sparx. They even watch the shooting stars zoom by.

"You know, Spyro," Sparx said, "seeing the shooting stars reminds me of the time my father and I went to see the night sky."

Spyro smiled at Sparx and then looked at the sky. He then closed his eyes and sighed. All of a sudden, a flashback filled his mind.

As Spyro unleashes his dragon fury to put the world in pieces back together, Cynder whispered, "I love you."

After the flashback, Spyro opened his eyes and gasped in surprise. He turned to Cynder and asked, "Cynder, was it true?" Cynder turned to him. "You really...love me?"

The black dragoness looked the purple dragon until she said, "Yes, Spyro. It's true."

"Well, why didn't you tell me?"

"I admitted, Spyro. After all, we have worked together to stop Malefor, and we did. I'm proud of you, Spyro. If it weren't for you, I'd still be his servant." And with that, Cynder gave Spyro a kiss, which made him smile.

"Sounds like you got yourself a girlfriend, Spyro," Sparx said rudely.

"Sparx!" Spyro snapped.

"I'm sorry."

Spyro then yawned and said, "I got to get some sleep. I'll see you in the morning, Cynder." He went in the temple when he said this.

"You too, Spyro," Cynder said.

The next morning, Spyro and Cynder went out for a flight. They flew across the forest until they landed beside the waterfall. Cynder lowered her head to have a drink of water while Spyro looked at his reflection. Sadness filled his body when he remembered Ignitus's sacrifice, which had broken his heart. Tears fill in his eyes as he sniffled. "Oh, Ignitus," he said to himself as a tear fell to the water.

Cynder splashed Spyro in the face and said, "If you remain that way after his sacrifice, he wouldn't be proud."

"But what will I do?" Spyro said sadly. "I miss him so much. He was like a father to me."

"And you'll always miss him like I will, but he'll always be with us in our hearts. Believe me, Spyro, he'll be proud of you like I am of you." Spyro looked at her with tears in his eyes. She dried his eyes and said, "Don't give me those dragon tears, Spyro, because they don't solve anything. Just chin up, Spyro."

Just then, a raindrop landed on Cynder's head. Looking up, it started raining. Spyro and Cynder flew back to the temple, only to arrive soaking wet. Walking in, they shook to dry up.

Terrador came in and said, "How did it go out there, Spyro?"

"Nothing," Spyro said. "We were just chatting until it started raining."

"Yeah, Spyro was just heartbroken about Ignitus," Cynder said, "and I told him that he'll be with us in our hearts."

Terrador patted on Spyro's head and said, "Don't feel that way after his sacrifice, Spyro. After all, we all miss him."

"But it wasn't suppose to be like that."

"I know, young dragon. Now, come with us and have some fruits."

As they eat their fruit, Spyro stopped eating and looked out the window. "Can any dragon imagine a rainy day like this?" he asked.

"Not all dragons imagine rainy days, Spyro," Cyril said.

"What's wrong, Spyro?" Terrador asked. "Aren't you gonna finish?"

"No. I'm just...Oh, I can't say it." And with that, he left the room.

The Guardian Dragons looked at each other until Cynder said, "I'll talk to him." She followed Spyro down the hall until they arrived at where they once slept. "Spyro, what's the matter?" she asked.

"Nothing," Spyro said, shaking his head. "I just wanted to see the view from here."

"Why didn't you tell us?"

"I don't know, Cynder. I don't know."

That night, as it still rained, while everyone's sleeping, Spyro sat by the wall and remembered the times with Sparx when he was a little dragon from before realising he wasn't a dragonfly after all. He later yawned and walked to Cynder and laid beside her. He then curled up and went to sleep.
