Hiccup was a skinny, red- haired boy. Although he was the son of the Chief (Stoick the Vast), he did not look like a hero. In fact, you would think that Hiccup was a normal village boy. However, his appearance did not matter – he was well known around Berk, his island, for being a genius at training dragons. He owned a Night Fury dragon, called Toothless, and together they went on many adventures. As well as this, Hiccup was in charge of Berk’s dragon training academy. His best friend was Astrid, who was a blonde-haired girl with her dragon, a Deadly Nadder called Stormfly. Despite this, he had an enemy, called Snotlout. Snotlout’s father was Stoick the Vast’s younger brother, which made him Hiccup’s cousin. Hiccup feared that Snotlout’s dragon, who was a Monstrous Nightmare called Hookfang, cannot be tamed.
“Okay, so now it is time for our weekly quiz. As always, the team with the most points win,” announced Hiccup.
“Do we have to do this quiz?” Snotlout asked.
“You always say that just because you lose every time!”snapped Astrid.
“Alright. So, question one. What is a Monstrous Nightmare’s weapon in battle?”
“I know this one! They turn their whole body into fire and fire balls to their enemies!” boasted Snotlout , with a smug expression on his face.
“That is correct. 1-0 to our team. Question two. What can Gronckles do that other dragons cannot?”
“I think I know this one,” muttered Fishlegs. Fishlegs was quite a shy person, and only trusted Hiccup with his secrets. He had a stocky body build, unlike Hiccup.”Gronckles can produce fine metals from its lava,” he said with confidence.
“1-1. Three more questions left. Which dragon can be descended from a Whispering Death? Actually, I know this. The dragon that can be descended from a Whispering Death is a Screaming Death. So that is …”
After Hiccup stopped mid-sentence, the tribe knew that something was wrong.
“Is that? It cannot be. Alvin the Treacherous and the Outcasts are coming to Berk!”
Alvin was once Stoick’s best friend, but after disobeying orders, Stoick had banished Alvin from Berk. From that moment on, Alvin was a sworn enemy to the citizens of Berk.
The royal blue sea came swooshing as an Outcast boat landed on shore. Hiccup then knew that it was too late: Alvin the Treacherous and the Outcasts had arrived on Berk…
