"Malchior!" The sorcerer grinned as he walked into the room.
"Hello, Grass Stain, did you miss me? Though I must say I cant believe you just pledged your love to the wrong girl," he commented. Logan looked at him confused.
"What are you talking about? This is Raven!"
"Raven is mine you little snot rag, and control her." Logan growled.
"You don't control her!" The sorcerer's grin widened into a smile. He waved his hand and Raven collapsed to the ground.
"Raven!" Logan kneeled next to the amethyst haired girl but when he turned her face to face his, blue eyes stared up at him and a wicked smirk was on the girl's face.
"Sorry, that's not my name," stated Terra. Logan was shocked but then he turned back to the sorcerer.
"Where is she?" Malchior started to walk out.
"Now you can watch as Raven dies," he said as he gestured to one of the windows. Logan turned and saw a black raven flying away. Logan wasted no time as he ran out and hopped on his horse, racing toward the lake. As he sped off he heard someone shouting to arrest the now blonde girl.
"She's fading fast little prince," he heard Malchior's voice say. "Maybe if you hurry you can make it in time to see her perish," the voice taunted. Logan's teeth ground as he pushed the horse to go faster.
***** Raven's breath was catching in her throat making it harder to breathe as she raced to the quarry. Her heart ached and her vision was clouding. She knew in her gut that she wasn't going to make it, something just told her that she wasn't going to see Logan before she drifted. The quarry and the lake were coming into view and she could just make out Garth, Roy and Flash standing by the quarry waiting.
***** "I see her! I see her!" shouted Garth in excitement but as soon as he noticed her flying was starting to get more shifty his excitement turned into dread. "Something's wrong." Roy and Flash looked over at the falcon and then up to the sky where they spotted Raven slowly drifting closer to the ground.
"She's not gonna make it," stated Flash. She flew passed them and her wings touched the lake but just before she crashed she landed on the ground and remained still. They got over there as quick as they could and saw Raven, in human form, lying there motionless as death itself. Garth, Roy and Flash's heads hung as they saw their friend. Garth turned his head when he heard something behind him and turned to see Prince Logan standing there with the most crushed and destroyed look he had ever seen. The prince slowly walked over to the princess and kneeled beside her body cradling her in his arms.
"Raven, I'm so sorry," he leaned his head into the crook of her neck. He felt something shift and then felt a soft hand cup his cheek. His head snapped up and he looked into the dull eyes of Raven. She had a weak smile on her face.
"It isn't your fault Logan," she said her voice barely above a whisper. Logan smiled down at her as a tear slid down his face.
"I meant to say that to you Rae." She stroked his jaw with her hand.
"You're going to be fine Raven, I promise." She smiled wider and shook her head.
"Don't get all sappy on me now Logan," she said. She leaned forward and pressed her lips to his before her hand fell off his face and her body went limp. Logan shook his head and laid her back on the ground. He shut his eyes tight to try and stop the tears from coming but they came anyway.
"How sentimental, but I'm getting rather sick with all this display of love." Logan turned his head to see Malchior leaning against one of the dead trees in the quarry. His body started to shake with rage.
"Don't you dare let her die," he said threateningly. Malchior raised a brow.
"Is that a threat dear prince?" he asked mockingly. Logan walked up to him and grabbed him by the collar of his shirt. "I'll take that as a yes."
Logan growled but Malchior just laughed. He grabbed the prince's arms and twisted them then yanked them behind his back so that the sorcerer could pin the prince against the tree. "Do you really think you can beat me?"
"I will, or I'm gonna die trying!" stated Logan with rage soaking his voice.
Malchior let go and as smile formed on his face. "As you wish." As he said this he started to shift and change. His skin turned a black/purple color, his eyes turned blood red, his fingernails started to grow long and curved. In a matter of seconds Logan was looking at a dragon.
"The great beast!" Logan said in awe. The beast turned and tried to strike him with his long tail but the prince dodge just in time. He pulled out his sword and lunged forward and sliced but the dragon moved. Logan had been expecting as much. He quickly changed his course and sliced upward which sliced the part of his wing, which made a green goo appear. Malchior roared in pain and examined his injured limb.
"That all you got," his slithering voice taunted the green boy. Logan growled. He launched again but Melchior dodged and yanked the sword out of the boy's hand before snapping it in two with its teeth. Logan suddenly felt nervous. The dragon swiped one of his claws at him and it nailed him in the arm. Blood started to pool out of the gash that was on the green boy's arm. The dragon laughed as Logan clutched his injured limb in pain. "You need to face facts, dear boy. Raven is gone and you're the reason for it." Logan shook his head which only made the giant lizard laugh harder.
"Yo Logan!" The prince turned his head and saw Vic standing there, drenched with a bow and arrow in his hand ready to launch. "Catch!" Malchior saw Vic ready to shoot the arrow and tried to stop the prince before he could catch it. He breathed fire in his direction but the prince just dodged it and caught the arrow. He slung his bow over his shoulder and pulled the arrow back. The dragon was heading his way quick as he waited for the moment to shoot, he couldn't afford to miss this time.
"It ends here Malchior." And with that said he launched the arrow and it pierced the dragon's chest, right where his heart was. Malchior roared and started to shrink down back to his original form. As soon as he was a man again he blew up in a flash of magic, finally gone for good. Logan smiled but it vanished as he started to race back to Raven's side. Not that it made a difference now, she was gone. Logan reached his hand down and cupped her pale cheek as a tear landed on her face that had fell from his eye. He shut his eyes tight and put his forehead to his knee as he sat there. "I'm so sorry Raven, none of this should have happened to you. You're too kind and smart and I...I love you," he managed to choke out. He looked up when he felt a hand on his shoulder.
He turned to see Vic with a look of sadness and concern on his face. He forced a smile but he stopped and leaned down to give Raven one last kiss. He pecked her lips and was about to pull away when he felt Raven pull him back down and kiss him with all the force she had. He was shocked to see her alive but eagerly kissed her back. In the background he could here, Vic and Raven's friends celebrating. He smiled. She was alive and she was his. He couldnt be happier.
***** Logan looked over at Raven a smile on his face. She wore a dark blue gown and a crown/tiara placed on her head as she stood and looked out at the water in the pond. She noticed him look over and she smiled back. "What are you smiling about?" she asked him playfully. Logan took her left hand in his and examined the ring that was there, (I think we all know what that means...no it doesnt mean she went digging in a mine...where the heck did you get that idea?), his smile widened.
"I'm smiling Rae because I get to spend the rest of my life with the most amazing girl, and I hope I can make her happy," he said sincerly. Raven blushed and her smile increased.
"Could you be anymore sappy? But I'm glad I get to spend the rest of my life with you too Logan," she said. She leaned up and placed a kiss on his lips and he wrapped his arms around her waist and she locked her arms around his neck. When they broke apart Logan leaned his forehead against hers and he smiled the biggest toothy grin down at her.
"Now whose being sappy?" he teased. Raven rolled her eyes but smiled all the same.
