(A/N): Cobalt Dragon, since you don't have an account on here I have answered your questions at the end of this page.
Spyro and Cynder led the two dragons back to Warfang. Once in the city the two siblings left the dragons, going their separate ways. Now Spyro was once again alone with Cynder.
"Cynder you didn't have to do that for me." He said.
"Do what?" She said, acting like she did not know what he was talking about.
"You know what I mean. Don't sacrifice yourself for me, because without you, I would no longer have a reason to live." He responded.
"Well that's the same reason that I was willing to sacrifice myself for you. Because you mean more to me than anything else in this world." She told him.
"Well it looks like both of us don't want to feel the pain of losing someone again."
One Week Ago
"Why do you suppose he left this time Spyro?" Cynder said, staring at the bracelet that she once again wore on her right front paw.
"I can't say for sure why he did, but maybe there was just too much pain in his heart. Maybe, just maybe he felt that after the stunt he pulled that no one would accept him again." He said, sitting down next to Cynder.
"I know he wasn't close to the others, but he was close to us. He might have felt like no one else liked him, but he must have at least known that we would have forgiven him. He should have at least told the two of us what he was planning on doing." Cynder said, placing her head on Spyro's shoulder.
"I don't know why he didn't bother to tell us. It could have been that he just wanted to spare us of the pain that we are feeling right now. You know I actually thought that he was going to stay. I haven't told anybody this yet, but during the last seconds of our fight he thanked me."
"He thanked you?" Cynder questioned.
"Yea, at first I thought it was because I had saved him from whoever had hired those mercenary cheetahs. But now that I think about it, I don't believe that was the reason."
"So what do you believe is the reason?"
"I probably caused him to have an epiphany about himself. Maybe now he has finally seen who he truly is."
"Do you believe we will ever see him again?"
"I hope we do so that we can see how much of a better dragon he has become." Spyro said, smiling.
"I hope that is the road he chooses to take." Cynder said, giving him a faint smile.
"Don't worry it will all work out in the end. Besides for the moment we have each other, and that is all that I could ever want." He said, wrapping his wing around Cynder.
"Cynder," He said, pushing his forehead against hers. "I love…"
"Spyro, Terrador wants to see you." Flame said, flying down towards the two dragons. He had interrupted the special moment that the two dragons were having. "And he said that it's urgent."
Why is it that every time I am about to reveal my feelings to her. Someone just so happens to interrupt us. Spyro thought to himself."I'm sorry Cynder, but I have to go." He said, separating himself from the dragoness.
"Wait Spyro, you didn't finish your last sentence. What were you about to tell me?" She said, hoping that he would continue.
"I'm sorry Cynder I'll tell you later." He said, flying off. He knew that the moment was over, but that something did come out of it. Now he knew that she felt the same way about him as he did about her.
I wonder Spyro if later will ever come. You keep on saying that, but it never happens. I'm starting to wonder if I am less important than your duties.
"You wanted to see me Terrador?" Spyro said, entering the room. He saw that it was not just Terrador waiting for him, but Cyril and Volteer were there as well. They had returned from their task.
"Yes, Cyril and Volteer have some important information for you Spyro."
"As you know young dragon, the two of us were gone quite some time." Cyril said. "We were asked by Terrador to locate the Chronicler."
"You guys met with the Chronicler?"
"Yes," Volteer responded. "He told us that he wishes to meet with you. He wants you to complete the training that you started three years ago. He says that he himself will train you for the master class, and will take you even above that. The Chronicler wants you to master all of your elements."
"When will I go?"
"Right now," Terrador said, surprising the young dragon. "He told these two that the world will once again be in danger. As of right now you will not be able to handle what lies ahead."
"What kind of danger?" Spyro asked.
"I'm sure that you are now aware that there are creatures who want you dead for defeating Malefor. Rai was the first of many that might want to end your life because of what you did. Either because they once worked for Malefor and now want revenge, or because they see you as a threat. They won't just harm you, but those close to you as well." He said.
"What if I don't want to go? I've already saved the world once, and done everything that you have asked of me. Can't I have some time to myself so that I can enjoy life with the ones I care about the most?" Spyro asked, growing upset about fulfilling his role as the purple dragon.
"Young dragon, I am ashamed of you for retaliating at us like that. Do you want darkness to once again enter this world, and take from you what you value most?" Terrador said, walking up towards Spyro. "We told you a long time ago that as the purple dragon many things would be asked of you. You must fulfill all of the tasks that we ask of you. We expect no less of the legendary purple dragon." Terrador said, glaring at Spyro.
"If I do go with the Chronicler how long am I going to be staying with him, and what will happen to Cynder?"
"How long is up to the Chronicler, but as for Cynder we will look after her. We will also train her, and help her reach the class of master. Now young dragon you must depart. We will allow you to say your farewells."
Spyro could not believe what he had just been told. It had all happened so fast, he was now going to leave his friends because if he did not they would be in danger. As much as he hated to admit it the Guardians were right. It was his responsibility as the purple dragon to do what was asked of him. As much as he hated putting the tasks that the Guardians had him over his friends, he had no choice. The first dragon that he saw was Ember. He landed next to her.
"Hi, Spyro," She said, greeting the purple dragon.
"Ember, I just wanted to say that you have always been a great friend to me. You always looked on the bright side of things, and because of that you made me see that there is always something better at the end. I have to leave, and I won't be able to see any of you for a long time. So I just wanted to say thanks for everything." He said, hugging the pink dragoness.
"You're welcome Spyro," She said, hugging him back. "I hope you come back soon."
"So do I," he said. He let go of the dragon and took flight once more. This time he spotted Blaze and Blair, they were walking towards the training grounds. He landed in front of them.
"What's up Spyro," Blair said.
"I just wanted to thank you guys for everything. Thank you, Blair for always looking out for everyone when I couldn't. Blaze, I know we got off to a rocky start, but in the end you became one of my closest friends. You even helped me on something that you had every reason to refuse. Thank you both for everything."
"You're welcome, but why are you telling us this?" Blaze questioned.
"I'm leaving Warfang for some time, and I don't know when I'll be back."
"Well Blaze and I hope that you'll be back as soon as possible."
Spyro flew off once again in search of another dragon. He came across Flame, flying down he landed next to him.
"Hey Spyro, so what did Terrador want?" He asked.
"He said that I have to leave to go train for some time. So I came looking for you to tell you goodbye and thanks. Thanks for everything that you've done. You were always able to bring a smile to our group, but you are also the most reliable dragon that I have ever met."
"Thanks Spyro, I hope that you come back as soon as possible." He said.
Spyro flew off in search of one last dragon. He found her walking by herself along the dragon temple's entrance.
"Hey Cynder," He said, landing next to her.
"Spyro what's wrong?" She asked, hearing the sadness in his voice.
"I have to leave for some time, and you can't come with me. But please believe that I am doing this for you."
"What? Isn't there something that you can do? I mean you can refuse to do this, right?"
"I can, but if I did then I won't be prepared for the next threat that we have to face. As the purple dragon it would all be my fault for not being ready for this threat."
"It's alright Spyro; I'm not angry or sad that you are leaving. Can you just please finally tell me what you've been meaning to tell me all this time?" She said, hoping that he will finally do it.
Spyro looked into her emerald eyes. They were filled with hope, expecting to hear those three words. He knew what she wanted him to say, and he wanted to tell her those words almost as much as she wanted to hear them.
"Cynder, I know what you're expecting me to say, and believe me there is nothing else that I am burning to tell you." He said with tears in his eyes. "But I just can't tell you. At least not at the moment. Not with these circumstances. You are too good for me Cynder, you deserve better." He saw that she was now holding back tears. "If you wait for me just a bit longer then when I come back I'll tell you those three words that you want to hear, but at the moment I can't. All I'm asking is that you wait for me."
"I'm sorry Spyro, but I have already waited enough. I won't promise anything. I will try to wait for you, but if I meet someone else then I'm sorry…I'm sorry because I can't help who my heart falls for."
Spyro reached in and kissed her on the lips, calming her down.
"I understand, I just hope that you won't meet anybody by the time I come back. When I do we can spend the rest of our lives together. Good bye, Cynder." He said, taking flight.
Cynder watched the love of her life fly away, leaving her behind.
"I hope that you are right about this Rai, for your sake Sypher." Gen said.
"Don't threaten me Gen; we both know which one of us is stronger. I'm only working together with you so that I can achieve what I want." Sypher said, responding to him.
"And you believe that this Rai will help both of us or just yourself?"
"Rai will help me, because I believe that we are both after the same thing. Once we find him I'll know for sure."
The four dragons continued on flying through the sky, searching for the grey dragon.
In a separate dimension, different from the one that the purple dragon resides in, eight dragons were gathering around a vision pool. Each dragon had one of the original eight elements.
"It seems that Spyro has gone to train with the Chronicler." One of them said.
"And his brother is currently training with Slifer." Another said.
"Slifer is above us in the order. We cannot touch those that are above us, but once Rai separates himself from Slifer we will be able to judge him."
"All the pieces are moving into place. Now we just wait for Malefor's resurrection, once he is revived we will be able to make our move."
"We have been given the task to rid this world of those that have tarnished it. They will all be judged by us because we are the Judges."
In a barren wasteland nothing remained alive, and only a single city remained. The city was desolate and heavily damaged. Rain was pouring down on the city as its only two inhabitants fought against each other. One was a grey dragon and the other wore a cloak.
"Will I get to see him soon?" The grey dragon asked.
"Yes, once your body and mind are ready. You need both to be at a certain level before you can enter that trance. Then and only then will you be able to speak to the celestial dragon that came before you. He will tell you everything that there is to know about being a celestial dragon." The cloaked dragon responded.
"What else will you teach me?"
"I will teach you about the Judges, and how to defend yourself against them." He said, smiling under his hood.
Spyro had made it to White Isle, and was now traveling through the Celestial Caves. It only took the dragon several more steps before arriving at his destination. He made his way into the Chronicler's home, walking around the area.
"Hello," he said, entering a room.
"Welcome young dragon it has been such a long time since we've last met."
Spyro heard the voice and instantly recognized it. Even though it was not the voice of the Chronicler he remembered, it belonged to a dragon that he had grown much attached to. Hearing his voice brought a smile to the dragon's face. He looked across the room, and saw the dragon that he had long since believed to be dead.
"Ignitus!" He yelled out in joy.

I'll answer your questions here Cobalt Dragon.
1. Is Spyro going to try, and save Rai from himself?
As you can see Spyro has a lot going on in his life at the moment. Currently I would say that Spyro trusts Rai to do the right thing.
2. How did Spyro and Cynder react to Rai leaving again, and if I could show the scene?
I chose to add the flash back towards the beginning of the chapter because I figured that it might have been something that not just you, but everyone else would have want to read.
3. How is Rai currently doing?
Since Rai showed up in this chapter I will let you decide for yourself on how he is doing.
