HiJack - The Grey - 07Day Sixty-TwoJack walks on the top of a high stone wall, turning the rough texture slick with ice. He stares ahead, past the houses and into the darkness of the forest. From the sky comes something wonderfully gold. Despite his heavy heart, Jack manages a smile. “Right on time, Sandman.”Then the tendrils of dream sand reach Jack's village. He touches one and a puppy materializes. The golden sand pup drops to his forelegs, tail wagging, and barks playfully at Jack. Jack's tentative smile turns into a full-blown one of happiness. The Sandman's dreams have been what has gotten Jack through many a long, difficult night. As the puppy disappears to go to a child, a dolphin takes its place.

HiJack - The Grey - 10After Defeating PitchToothiana clutches a baby tooth as white as freshly fallen snow to her chest.

HiJack - The Grey - 03Day Fourteen“I never thought it was possible, but I think its snowing three times as much as usual.” Hiccup stares out the forge window with his gloved hands on his hips. There isn't much to see other than more snow and the tops of some buildings. The only reason there is a view outside the window is because of the fire inside melting the immediate snow. “Is it because you are here?”“Probably but its not on purpose.” Jack sits as far away from the fireplace as he can to keep the fire alive. He's been on the island of Berk for two weeks now. The snow has reached record highs and it has the people of Berk talking among themselves. They are worried that they aren't appeasing their gods and there has been talking about sacrificing sheep.Hiccup shakes his head. He closes the window but the temperature stays about the same since Jack is in the room. The brunette claps his hands together. “Alright, Toothless, lets take a look at your tail.
