The dust clears. "Hiccup!" Stoick called but no answer came. "Hiccup!" He searched farther. "Son!" He suddenly saw the Night Fury crashed down (again). "Hiccup." Stoick ran to where the Night Fury is, but he saw no Hiccup with him. Toothless was exhausted
he just kept his wings wrapped. Stoick looked and noticed the fin was gone. Obviously burned. Where's Hiccup? Stoick thought. No, it can't be. He can't just... Stoick fall to knees in front of the dragon. "Oh son. I did this." he muttered under his breath.
Other Vikings came. They looked at the sad scene in front of them. Astrid pushed among the crowd to see. She looked at disbelief and in tears. She just couldn't believe it. Hiccup couldn't be gone. She never even gets to tell him how much she loves him. She always had a secret crush on him since they were kids and now he's gone.
"MOVE! OUT OF THE WAY!" Val pushed through and ran next to Stoick. "Where is he?" she demanded.
"Val... He... He's gone." Stoick couldn't look her in the eye.
Val drop to her knees. "No! Not my son. Not our boy!" Val cried to Stoick's shoulder who put an arm around her. "I'm sorry."
Jade suddenly then flew ,along with the rest of the Night Furies, to them. She looked at her son and smiled ,but then looked for the rider. Val looked up and shook her head. Jade gave a sad moan. She know how much Hiccup means to them ,and her.
Toothless crooned but soon woke up ,weakly though. He looked around the sad Vikings and dragons. He looked at Stoick who simply said. "My son. I'm so sorry."
Toothless carefully unfurled his wings revealing Hiccup safe and sound. Stoick's eyes widen. "Val! Val look!"
Val looked at the night Fury and sure enough sees Hiccup with him. "Hiccup!" she cried.
She quickly took him into int arm and pressed her ear against his chest. Relief came to her. "He's alive! He's alive!" She cried in joy. All the Vikings and dragons cheered. Astrid cried in relief ,and ran over to them. She looked at the unconscious Viking. "Hiccup." she said.
Hiccup blinked open his eyes. "Hey Astrid." He smiled noticing she was crying. "Astrid were you... crying?"
Astrid wiped her tears. "Only because I thought you were dead." She then frowned and punched his arm hard. "That's for scaring."
"Ahh, is it always gonna be this way because..." but Hiccup was cut off when Astrid grabbed the collar of his tunic. "Shut up and kiss me." she whispered and kissed him.
Hiccup was almost light headed. "I could get used to it." he smiled at Astrid who just squeezed his hand.
"Just don't think of scaring me like that again." Astrid smiled and whispered "I love you."
Hiccup almost wanted to make this wasn't a dream. "I love you too."
Val smiled for Hiccup and Stoick proudly at his son. "Hiccup I'm sorry for everything."
"Yeah me too." Hiccup shrugged smiling.
"I wasn't the best father ,but that will change from now on. I promise."
"Thanks dad." Stoick lay a hand on Hiccup's shoulder.
"OH GODS!" Val cried.
"What is it? What happened?" Stoick asked.
"Hiccup's leg. It's... It's..." Val lokked at it with tears in her eyes. They all looked and were shocked at what they see.
There one was Hiccup leg, was now a burned wound. The "leg" looked roasted and almost in ashes.
Hiccup stared at the leg for a while. He sighed. Now he knows how Gobber feels. astrid gently kissed his cheek. "I'm sorry." she leaned her head on his shoulder. Hiccup smiled softly.
"It's ok. I mean were Vikings. It's an occupational hazard." Stoick smiled at the old saying he always says.
"Guys where's Toothless?" The Vikings turned to the direction of the Night Fury but looked sadly at the scene in front of them.
There lying on the ground was Toothless but he didn't move an inch. his eyes were closed ,and his breathing was slow. Jade, Thunder, and the Night Furies all had sad looks and made sad croons.
"What... What happened?" Hiccup looked at his parents.
"I found him this way. He looked exhausted." Stoick said sadly.
Hiccup walked (more like crawled) to his dragon. "Toothless? Toothless are you ok?"
Hiccup gave Toothless a shook. He looked at Jade who shook her head in tears.
"No! No it can't be!" Hiccup shook harder. "Toothless wake up! Please! I'm sorry! I'm so sorry!" Hiccup cried as he called for his dragon. He eventually gave in crying onto the Night Fury's shoulder.
Everyone bowed their heads in grief. Val cried a little and so did Astrid.
Hiccup cried so hard he didn't feel a gentle wing came over him. That's when he opened his eyes and saw nothing but darkness. He looked around until he saw those greenish yellow eyes. "Toothless?" he asked. He heard a gentle purr of assurance.
"Toothless!" Hiccup threw his arm around him crying in joy. Toothless purred and hugged him back.
Hiccup looked at Toothless in the eye. "You scared me you crazy reptile." Toothles looked at him apologetically. Hiccup chuckled. "It's ok bud. I'm just glad your alright."
Toothless tackled Hiccup and they soon laughed together young kids who are best friends.
Toothless soon noticed the burned up leg Hiccup has now. Hiccup smiled and patted Toothless head. "It's alright Toothless. I mean It's better to loose your leg than your whole life right?" Toothless wrapped a wing around and his tale around him.
Astrid stepped in. "Hey look you two match now." Hiccup and Toothless looked at their one fin and leg. Astrid was right. They do match now. Hiccup smiled feeling somehow closer to Toothless.
He pushed himself up and almost fell but Toothless and Astrid caught him just in time. "We'll help you." astrid said and Toothless purred agreeing. Astrid putted an arm around Hiccup leaning her head on his shoulder and Toothless walked right by his side.
Val almost sobbed just looking at the leg. "Mom it's ok." Hiccup tried to console her.
"No it's not! My little boy now has one leg." this caused Astrid to giggle ,the rest of the tribe to laugh, and Toothless to chuckle.
"Mom, your embarrassing me in front of the dragon." Hiccup muttered.
I don't care. I'm surprised you don't seem this devastated." Val frowned.
"Well like I said before. We're..."
"Don't say 'We're Vikings. it's an occupational hazard.' I heard enough of that from your father."
"Val." Stoick came in. "I know your upset but..."
"UPSET? UPSET? LET ME TELL YOU WHEN I'M UPSET! WHEN YOU NEVER LISTEN TO OUR SON I'M UPSET! WHEN YOU SAID YOU COULDN'T FIND YOUR LEFT SOCK AND DIDN'T LISTEN TO ME WHEN I SAID I WASHED IT I'M UPSET! WHEN YOU DISOWNED OUR SON AND ME I'M UPSET. BUT WHEN OUR SON JUST LOST A LEG I AM DEVASTATED!" Val almost lost her breath.
"Look mom. I know your "devastated" ,but this is just something I have to get use to. I mean I shot down Toothless so he knows what it's like."
Val looked at the crippled dragon and Viking standing by each other side. She saw the one fin Toothless has now and probably will have forever. she then looked at the leg Hiccup lost. She knows they are close friends ,and always will be. She knows they will be no matter what. She just smiled at them ,and hiccup knows what she means.
Stoick looked at every Viking ,and dragon, watching the scene on the island. Some laughed after hearing when he couldn't find his left sock. He now wondered and asked aloud one thing. ""How are we going to get home?"
Hiccup came up and smiled. "We fly of course."
