As Prizma deliberated what to say, her computer screen suddenly blinked on, bearing a message: Eavesdropping device detected.

Vega. Of course...well, Prizma would just have to have a bit of fun with this.

Pointing to the computer, then to the wall that stood between them and Vega, Prizma signaled Ring with a playful wink.

"It's hard to say about those files," she muttered, "but there's a more pressing matter I've been meaning to discuss with you." Mischief twinkling in her eyes, she hissed, "I've been wondering if I should advise the Commander to move Vega down a rank in the program. With his childish behavior lately, I fear the stress of being an agent has taken its toll on him. Using important equipment, listening devices, for instance, for his own silly whims. Not to mention his snoring at night is incredibly disruptive to everyone's sleep. They've said he's louder than a hyperspace shuttle's engine..."

-------

Ducky was too focused on what Littlefoot had just revealed to notice Rinkus nearby. "Of course we believe you, Littlefoot. We are your friends," she assured him with a smile.

"It must have been amazing," Ruby gasped as she imagined what Littlefoot must have witnessed. "I wish we could see what you saw for yourself for all of ourselves!" She thought seeing Sky Beings in person must have been just as amazing as when she and her friends were able to see Hidden Runner. "Do you think they'll ever return here?"
Going through my fanfics to make sure I don't want to change anything before I post. (This might take a while.)

Vega could never outsmart his sister, no matter what he did. He knew when he was defeated.

"You win, Prizma." Vega said through the wall. "Please inform me what is going on tomorrow."



Littlefoot wanted to answer Ruby's question.

"Well Ruby, last time the Rainbow Faces were here, Far-walkers came. The Stone also landed on Threehorn Peak. But I don't know if either of those things had anything to do with the Rainbow Faces showing up," Littlefoot said. "They haven't been back here for a while."

Cera hated thinking about if the Rainbow Faces came back. "If those Rainbow Faces came back, I would give them a piece of my mind!"

Gnosasaur lead the Flyer into the canyon. The winding serpentine path with walls higher than longneck necks encompasses them. The two were bathed in shadows and then rays of the Bright Circle. They came to an enterance carved into the wall of orangeish brown rock. Two mighty pillars stood, with runes in the shapes of squares, triangles and lines. There were four pillars on the two story tall gate, the door of which was sealed. The door was topaz colored each with more markings. Gnosasaur placed the scepter end into the hole in the center and the doors flung open. Inside they came to naturally formed rock tunnels and corridors, the scepter’s shard began to glow giving light. The Concavenator seemed to know the path, he sensed the Flyer’s awe and the subtle urge to sieze the scepter for himself. They came down to a lower chamber, the room was square and in the center a half pillar in a hexagon shaoe, upon it a mid sized orb so blue it matched the shard in the scepter. Gnosasaur pointed to the stone, “There it is, The Stone of Cold Fire. Go ahead, take it, its yours” [hidden intent: Gnosasaur prompted the Flyer to step forward, knowing a trap lay ahead for any who touch the Stone]

————————

Ringus took note that Prizma deflected the question to her brother. When they were students she often would avoid the question with other information. Ring’s hair shaped spikes made a sizzling rattling sound, this often happened when he was irritated or angry. “Your brother’s eavesdropping matters little to me, what disturbs me is the censorship of information regarding the Forerunners.” Ring stepped back towards the porthole to space, his eyes aflame. “The Mysterium has waylaid my research before, but my research put an end to the Ptero Wars. By harnessing the knowledge from the Forerunners I brought peace and protection! And yet despite this, the Elders along with Mysterium curb my progress! Its infuriating!” Ring felt his tempo (pitch) rise, the raptor shriek that was used by primitives to terrify prey came out loud and clear. Ring caught himself, “I.. I apologize.. I don’t know what came over me. You shoukd never have been subjected to such.. disgraceful behavior.” Ring turned back to Prizma, his orb circles around his eues furrowing and his face downcast.

———————

Petrie listened as they speculated about the Sky Beings and Rainbowfaces. When they were puzzled about Prerano, Petrie gulped. He had been meeting his Uncle near Saurus Rock, in a cave. Pterano welcomed his nephew with his large wingspan, “Petrie, my boy! I am so glad you have come.” The voice of his Uncle was soothing and kindly. Against the wishes of his mother and the Herd in the Great Valley Petrie kept his returned Uncle’s presence a secret. “Petrie, I have come to relate to you the wisdoms I have gleaned from Ptergypt, and beyond!” Petrie listened to his wise Uncle tell of The Ancients, of wonders that filled Petrie’s imagination. Petrie came back to the Gang from his recalling, they were all disputing if Littlefoot spoke the truth. Petrie kept silent, he believed Littlefoot because of what Pterano had told him, but the little Pterosaur would not betray his Uncle and explain he learned of stories about The Stone of Cold Fire.

Sierra was in pure awe… He barely noticed what the sharptooth said before stepping forward instinctively… Just then it hit him like lightning. Did he just openly offerred the stone to him? Such a legendary mythical artifact just like that? Sierra turned. "Hold on a moment… Didn't you need the stone's power to find that Sanctum of something?" He looked at Gnosasaur suspiciously… If this was someone like Pterano it be another thing, but this is a sharptooth... Although the urges to touch the stone are fighting against his gut feelings of danger.

Spike made faint giggling mumbles at what Cera said. Knowing them, they might give her a piece of their mind instead. Spike thought.

Chomper thought about what Littlefoot said. "I wonder if they'll come again if another
stone lands near the valley?" Chomper suggested.

Rinkus finally managed to start fishing nearby… He was fortunate to have caught a fish swimming about. He immediately hides upon seeing a silhouette of a big dino. He has the cover of the night, but he isn't gonna take it for granted, not in such a cornered state.

Fortunately, Prizma wasn't fazed much by Ring's outburst. Unlike others in the program, she'd always been able to see that his intelligence and heart outweighed his sharptooth instincts, and she'd trusted him despite his occasional temper. Though it was only natural that she'd been taken aback by Ring's raptor cry seconds ago, but as his shame became clear, she came closer to him once again, forcing his eyes to meet hers.

"I know you," Prizma told him. "I have no fear of you. But for your own good, you would do wise to keep your instincts in check. Others, sadly, are not so forgiving." She turned her focus back to the issue at hand. "It was never you I wanted to conceal information from, but I apologize for not explaining things sooner." Leaning closer, she hissed, "However, I would prefer a more private place for our discussion. Vega has just proven that anyone could listen in on us here." She glanced towards Vega's room.

Prizma had been caught off guard by her brother's reaction to her teasing. She'd been expecting to get under his skin a little, but the mature response he'd given her instead made her feel guilty. He hadn't been eavesdropping to annoy her, he'd been doing it because he really was concerned about her...

Prizma turned back towards Ring. "The three of us," she said. "The three of us will meet tomorrow." As something else occurred to her, she added, "You should go back to your room, before anyone wonders about that screeching sound."

-------

"It could happen," Ducky eagerly agreed with Chomper. "It could, it could!"

"I wonder how rare a Stone of Cold Fire is? I'd never heard of one before, not even in the Mysterious Beyond," said Ruby. "I hope there will be another one someday so Chomper and I can see what all of you saw." With a yawn, however, she suddenly realized how tired she was. "I think now, though, it would be good for us to go home and get a good night's sleep."

Vega was worried about Prizma. She hadn't slept for the past 4 days. He also was worried about Ring's screech. He didn't exactly trust Ring, considering he was the only sharptooth on the space station. Vega decided that he should go to bed. He shut the electronic blinds with his remote, and went to sleep.



Littlefoot yawned. He didn't realize how tired he was.

"Okay guys, I'll see you tomorrow." Littlefoot said, as he walked backed home.

Cera heard Spike giggling near a bush. "What's so funny?" Cera asked Spike grumpily. "Well, I'm going home. And if anyone says anything about the Rainbow Faces, or Stone, they're not going to say anything else for a long time."

Gnosasaur saw that the clever Flyer would not be coaxed so easily. The Ruby colored Concavenator then took a step on the golden tiles leading to the Stone. His long serpentine length body twisted beneath the open dome cieling that bathed the stone in light. “If you do not desire the Stone, I shall take it.” Gnosasaur reached for the Stone, the tip of his claw nearly scatching the surface. He could feel the stone’s pulse, it hummed and his sapphire diamond chest piece lit up. “Oh Stone, one of the wonders of the Ancients, bestow upon me thy knowledge..” The Crafty Concavenator could feel his pterosaur companion’s unrest, was this the moment?

———————

Ring tried to restore his composure as he took in the words of affirmation Prizma spoke to him. Her voice had always steadied him, he felt the primal stirrings calm. She always knew what to say. The suggestion that they meet to doscuss the matter of the sealed files in a more secure location met with Ring’s approval, he nodded, and the warning that he should depart lest someone come to inquire about his shriek was met with another nod. He bowed his head and said, “tell tomorrow then my friend.” With that gesture he left Prizma’s quarters. He had reached the second corridor when his datapad came alive with noise and lit up blue, he held the device in hand. “What? How?! Someone is attempting to breach my safety seal on the Second Stone!” Ring rushed to his quarters, sealed the door and plugged his datapad in the a screen on the wall. A beacon appeared on the screen, and the Temple of Petras was laid out in blue prints. Ring’s hair spikes rattled, he tries to get a closer look, but the camera feed was grainy and distorted, he could only get a glimpse of a head, it was a Sharptooth, and then the feed went dead. Ring crackled his claws, this was unprecedented, his safe guards had never been successfully bypassed, and by a sharptooth? While he himself was indeed a sharptooth, never had any bipedal carnivour interfered with the technology of the Ancients. There was an incident not long ago of Pterosaurs trying to sieze The Stone of Cold Fire, but that did not suprise Ringus, Pterosaurs built the Pteromaids and knew the Forerunners. This other sharptooth was another story. Ring knew by now the Elders were being briefed by the Watchasaurs, his division of Safe Guard Sentinels who monitor all sites of the Forerunners and the chief artifacts. However, only he had tknowledge of this strange sharptooth. It was time for him to report to the Elders. Perhaps now they might oblige his request to make an expedition on the surface.

——————

Petrie yawned, he was weary of the discussion and still miffed that his friends, except forc Littlefoot did not believe him about the Stone of Cold Fire. Petrie began to flap his wings snd hover, “Night Night everyone.” He flew back towards hus neat when he was intercepted by anither Flyer that emerged from behind some cliffs. “Uncle Pterano?! You can’t be here! If Momma sees you are back.” Pterano swooped around his nephew and said in his pleasent tome, “Petrie my boy, do not worry so much. The Bright Circle is fading and I have come to tell you something of great importance.”

Sierra couldn't take it anymore, he didn't want to leave anything to chance! He made a mad dash! He pushes the Gnosasaur's claw aside and slams his entire hand on the stone. "Sorry! But I waited too long for this! Great Stone! Give me your almighty power!!"

"See yah! Good night!" Chomper waved as he went with Ruby.

Not that I'll talk about it, Spike thought as a response to Cera. He smiles waving a paw as to say good night. After Petrie left, Spike offer's Ducky to ride on his back to their nest through a gesture to his back.

Rinkus is trying to find a place to hide… Morning is coming. Just then he saw that little flyer again, Pterano's nephew. If he heard correctly those brats were talking about the Stone of Cold Fire. As done as he was with that stone, he managed to overhear a key fact. The Rainbow Faces are related to the Forerunners somehow. He wants any shot of finding any real power, Stone of Cold Fire, Ptergypt, ancients, or whatever, he has to find those Rainbow Faces. Just then… Pterano… He recognized that silhouette from anywhere… He hides nearby… To him Pterano is nothing more than a fool… But after what he heard earlier, this might be important.
