Jack placed his hands up in defense for he threatening finger and chucked a little “O-okey.. I wont” He smirked before he grabbed hiccups hands and pinned him down on the couch just for the fun of it “I guess we’ll have a few weeks to ourselves then during the day?..” He smirked before he kissed hiccups lips softly.
Hiccup smiled and kissed him back softly. “What will we do with our time?” he mocked with a smile. Grabbing Jack’s hood he pulled it down over his boy friend’s eyes and laughed as he rolled of the couch. Brunet then motioned for Jack to follow him as he made his way up the stairs.
Astrid smiled fondly as the water dragon playfully nipped at Hiccup’s fingers. It seemed the Altari had already gained a flock, the sheep all resting by the pond at some point. Of course, she had Bucket and mulch wrapped around her little paw as well. Grabbing Hiccup’s sketch book she quickly drew a couple of diagrams before slipping the book over to him. “She’s going to need something like this to house her inside once winter hits. just so she has something to splash in when she needs to.” If she still had fins she would’ve taken the dragon to a cove to swim for the winter and stayed beside her until she could live out of water.
Hiccup looked at the diagrams that she made, carefully examining what they could do. “Seems doable,” he said and looked at her with a smile. “I can draw out some plans and have Gobber get started on some of the bigger projects while I would on the fine detailing. Princess will have the perfect indoor habitat come winter time. We could attach it to Bucket and Mulch’s barn so that she is close to the sheep but also have a way for her to get to their main house without going out in the cold.”
Astrid splashed him back, scowling yet laughing at his antics. “You just like bugging me you mean.” Stepping out of the water she dried and dressed herself, quickly weaving her hair into a braid while she waited for Hiccup to dry off. “Come on, before the dragons think this is our holiday spot and start having their own honeymoon.”
Hiccup gets out of the water. “But isn’t that what you want them to do?” he asked as he dried off and got dressed. He reattached his leg and walked over to her. “Don’t you want them to have Night Nadder babies?” With a smile he placed a kiss on her forehead and took her hand.
Heather strutted into the room, smiling brightly at Hiccup. “Well this is a pleasant surprise, what may I do for you?” She asked, her eyes trained on Hiccup. Stoick remained silent, waiting to see what his son would do. It was Hiccup’s bride she’d attacked, it was his son’s place to punish her.
Hiccup stared at Heather for a long minute before clearing his throat. His arms were crossed over his chest and he stood up tall. “Tell me, Heather,” he said slowly. “Why do you think we called you here?” Prince kept a close eye on the girl’s guards who stood just behind her.
Astrid took his hand and smiled softly, letting him lead them out to where he intended to eat. “So what’s the plan? Princess first?” Stormfly and Toothless bore the baskets with their food happily, knowing they’d get their treats eventually. It was strange to walk through the village with Hiccup beside her, especially considering she’d done her best to get rid of him, but now she couldn’t imagine him not being there.
Hiccup nods. “Sure,” he said. “We can go see Princess first.” Taking her hand gently he led the way up to Bucket and Mulch’s place. The two men greeted them with a smile before going about their work. Hiccup sat beside Princess’ small pond and called for her.
Astrid watched him swim for a moment, he was like a big kid, get him near water and you’d never get him out. Unless there was a dragon, dragons always won. The blonde walked over to sit on a submerged rock to bathe while being able to chuckle at her wayward husband. “I married a fish.”
Hiccup laughed as he shook his hair from his eyes. “I just like swimming is all,” he said. Swimming closer he took a mouth full of water and sprayed it at her between his teeth playfully. After he too began to bathe himself, getting what little dirt there was off his body and out of his hair.
"She did what?" Stoick had two choices when angry. His thunderous boom or his even more dangerous quiet calm. This time he used his calm voice. "No one harms my son’s future bride. Gobber, get those men." The King stalked to his office, letting Hiccup follow at his own pace. They’d sort this out and then he’d get more details about Astrid.
Hiccup smirked, happy at his dad’s reaction to the news. “It happened a couple days ago dad, during the tournament,” he said. He followed his dad into the office then stood beside the desk waiting for Heather and her two guards. Boy was that girl in for a shocking surprise that he knew the truth.
"I am never going to get tired of hearing you say that." Astrid grinned back, resting her head on his shoulder. This was everything she’d wanted, to grow old with him. He’d grow into a strong, kind and beloved chief and she’d be by his side the whole time, helping him and sharing the burden. "You know, you’re not too bad yourself….for a Hiccup."
Hiccup chuckles and presses his lips against hers as he made her wrap her legs around his waist. His hands wrapped around her firmly holding her to his chest. After a couple of minutes he let go of her then went under the water, pushing away from her and swam to a deeper part of the lake.
Stormfly rolled her eyes, like she needed to be told to stay with her rider. The Blonde and the Nadder stayed outside, watching until Hiccup disappeared from sight completely. “Come on girl, lets go see if my room is big enough for the both of us.”
Stoick crossed his arms, watching his son land. “Dinner was over an hour ago and Lady Heather was asking where you were.” The King had wanted to appear gruff but the fact was he remembered when he and Valka were young and he spent every waking moment trying to get her attention. At least Hiccup had managed to gain a contract out of his blonde. “Is she worth it? Tell me about her.”
Hiccup rolled his eyes at the mention o Heather. “Dad I would really appreciate it if you would stop with the whole Lady Heather thing,” he said. “I have no interest in her and personally she has no business knowing where I am. Secondly I would like for you to summon her and her guards to your office for a short meeting. I want her guards thrown in a cell for it was them who attacked Astrid in my tent. As for Astrid,” he took a deep breath and smiled, “yes she’s worth it. She’s feisty, strong, doesn’t care that I’m a prince that comes with land and a castle. She adores my dragons and makes me feel like I can do anything as long as she’s by my side.”
The boy followed and he nodded “I see. Well you don’t seem dorky to me. I don’t really know how I was. Something happened at my old school so we moved and I started a new Highschool then we came back but no one will tell me what happened.” He said as he rubbed his head and he walked beside him.
Hiccup bit the inside of his lip as he wanted to tell Jack they went to the same High school but he remembered that Jack’s parents strictly told him to stay away from Jack. It was one thing the boy never really understood about what happened. The two had been best friends spending almost every day together and then all of a sudden Jack’s parents want him to stay away, as if they had never met. It broke Hiccup’s heart to see his best friend struggle after the accident and it hurt him more when he disappeared until their senior year. Being gone for so long, Hiccup felt it tore an even greater rift in their friendship then the accident did. “W-what do you mean something happened?” He tried to stay calm, he knew very well what happened.
