Grimmel finally got to his point making everyone now look at him, everyone except Hiccup. Gobber noticed this and gestured him to pay attention. Hiccup crossed his arms and reluctantly looked at Grimmel. A sigh came out of his mouth and just before he could really understand what Grimmel was talking about a huge thunderbolt fell pretty close the Great Hall making everyone jump. He saw in the disturbance the perfect time to escape so he didn't waste more time and without thinking twice he slipped away the Great Hall and ran to the first place that came to his mind, the forest. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Astrid was running with difficulty as raindrops were turning into rocks by the water force. Her wet hair was covering her face and just when she tried to take it off her eyes she hit her knee with a pretty pointed rock that she couldn't notice on time. This, caused Astrid to lose her balance, making her stumble down a steeped road that seemed familiar to her. It wasn't until she reached the end of it that she realised where she was. The only difference was that the last time, she wasn't running away from someone. The last time, she went down by Hiccup's hand, the last time he was there and now, she needed him more than anything. She found a little space to hide and try to think of a way to escape but pain was starting to get noticeable now. She touched her leg letting out a groan. She inmeadiately covered her mouth with both hands, noticing that the one she used to touch her hurt leg was covered in blood. She took a deep breath and stood there trying to hear footsteps from the ones who were following her but instead she heard Hiccup calling for her. "AASTRIID!", Hiccup shouted as he began to walk to the cliff's direction. "ASTRID WHERE ARE YOU!"
- "Did you hear that? Someone's looking for the girl too", one of Astrid's pursuers said. - "Let's go, we can't get caught"
- "Or we could get rid of both"
- "We don't even know who's the other one looking for her! Let's go! The rain is getting stronger. We'll tell the chief that we couldn't find her. She dissapeared anyway", the other one finished making his partner barely accept. 👇🏻
