------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the story of why these unlikely competitors took part in the race: 
(Honestly, I don't expect you guys to read this but if you do, I apologise for all the misspellings, unfinished sentences and grammar mistakes XD)

Jett and Apollo hid behind the stone wall of a building in a small town near Zindar, Colderra. Jett did a series of coded motions to Apollo, who nodded in response. Jett then casually walked up to the nearest food shack and stuck up a conversation with the vendor. Meanwhile, Apollo crept up behind the vender and started grabbing the food with his teeth and dropping them into the saddle pack on his back. Apollo placed five loaves of bread into the pack and on his sixthed one slipped out of his mouth. It dropped to the group and even though the town was full of sounds, the one the loaf made did not escape the vendor's hearing. The vendor's head whipped towards Apollo who froze, then back at Jett. Jett made eye contact with Apollo and within the next seconds both thieves took off in opposite directions. The vendor began yelling and after a moment of consideration, took off running in Apollo's direction. Apollo dashed around the first corner and made his way towards Jett like they'd planned. The vendor's yelling attracted the local leopard gecko riding guards who also joined in on the chase. 


Jett climbed the closest building. He reached the roof and paused to listen. He heard yelling coming from the west direction and began heading that way. He jumped and ran across a series of roofs until he found Apollo. Jett slid down the side of the building, bounced off a stall canopy and landed near Apollo. Apollo kept running and as he was passing Jett, Jett grabbed hold of the saddle and swung himself on. The two took off down the street with the guards quite a few lengths behind. They rounded the next corner, but to their dismay there were another pair of guards at the end of this street. The guards looked at the duo weirdly and when the guards chasing them appeared from around the corner the new alley guards did a retake. They mounted their geckos and began charging at Jett and Apollo. 


Apollo kept his pace as Jett glanced behind him. The other guards were too close to turn around and the ones approaching them were also unavoidable. Jett tightened his grip on Apollo's fur and urged Apollo onwards. As the pair came within meters of the gecko guards, Apollo jumped into the air. The pair soared over the guards and their mounts. The geckos came to a sudden stop - in shock. The guards who didn't expect the stop, and were still in bewilderment about Apollo's jump, were hurtled forwards and off their mounts. The guards landed on the ground in front of their mounts, just as Apollo landed his jump behind them. Jett looked back to see the two guards scrambling to get up as well as grab their geckos. Jett laughed and Apollo shook his head. Although they got past one set of guards, the original guards chasing them were still there. Their geckos had switched from running across the ground to scaling the walls to avoid their coworkers on the street. 


Jett and Apollo were convinced they'd get away with the thievery until the rounded the next corner and ran straight into another set of guards. They collided in an uproar of riders, wargs, geckos, and stolen goods. As Jett finally crawled his way out of the wreckage, he looked up to see there was one of the original guards right in front of him. The guard grabbed Jett and quickly tied his hands. Jett looked around to see the other guards trying to put a muzzle on Apollo, who was not putting up an easy fight. Jett, feeling bad for the guards, called out Apollo's name. Apollo stopped, looked at Jett and then shoved past the guards and crashed into Jett, sniffing him for injuries. Since Jett's hands were tied, he couldn't do much but lay there, trapped under the weight of Apollo. Once the guards once again overcame their shock, the grabbed the ropes which were already on Apollo and then shoved a muzzle on him. 

The pair were dragged to the side of the street against an empty wall. Jett, who had his back against the wall, looked to the right and saw a wanted sign. The sign just happened to contain a picture of him and had a list of all his crimes. Jett looked back at the guard and pretended not to notice the sign. The guard glanced at the sign and look back at Jett with an eyebrow raised. Jett smiled at him in response. The guard sighed and said, "Well, it seems as though you are quite the troublemaker."

Jett smirked and said, "I guess you could say that."

"Runaway, hitman, thief... and I'm not even going to list the others. Here kid, let me crack a deal with you." The guard said after a sigh. Jett raised an eyebrow. "Just in that chase alone," the guard continued,"you and your dog" - Jett narrowed his eyes - "have proven to be quite skilled." The guard nodded towards Apollo, "he's fast and a great jumper."

"Yeah, so what do you want" Jett snapped. 

"Here, read this." The guard hands Jett a flyer for the Colderian Grandprix 2016 race.

“You want… us to enter in… this?” Jett snorts and hands the flyer back to the guard, “no way, we don’t do these kind of things. Not our scene.”

“Look, there is the one competitor in that race who is very dangerous. He’s the only competitor entered from this town and if he wins the grand total… let’s just say it would go very badly for us over here.”

“Why should I care about your little town.”

“You see, we wouldn’t be worried if we were confident that the other competitors could beat him. But we aren’t. You two seem like you could beat him. All we’re asking is for you to join the race. If you win, we’ll let you get away with all your crimes here, scot-free. Plus you can still keep the prize money if you win.” After hearing the word “money”, Jett suddenly got very interested in this deal.
"Scot-free you say?"

Word count : 1035 words


Summary of the story is: if these two don't win Jett will have to pay for his crimes! MUAHAHAHAHHA Elmo en llamas Jerry's ''rapeface''

Yesssss!!!! So, what to draw? Like, I can do a sketch or something and then do the background to send it to you so you do the character(s)? Or should you do a sketch and draw the characters first and I add the background later? And what do we want to draw?0_0

Fine!XD I just thought, if like something is to be in front of the character(s). But maybe I can take it back to my computer then, or you send me a picture without background and only the character(s) so I can edit them in, you know. Like, I draw everything, and if a bush or something is in front of anything you are to draw, I draw that too. And then you make the character(s) on top of that so you know where the light and shadow is, and then send me back (sta.sh i guess) only the character(s) (man this is getting annoying with all th (s)XDXDXD) and DONE!!!!XDXDXD

So, what are we to draw? Like, one of my characters and one of your together? What are they doing and were???0_0

Plus you can just draw it with layers, and send me a psd file. So we can just both use the layers :D and I can draw on photoshop hahah

Umm probably something fantasy/magical... 

If I drew Lexi Cinnamon Spice by Chotta18  and one of yours? Maybe Charlotte and they can just be like sleeping next to each other? Or Rajjaja like protecting her? 

Or Denali LIGHTNING by Chotta18   and one of yours? Make it dramatic? Lol

Or Kaiko Kaiko by Chotta18   and Gomus being psycho XD
