As Oliver and Horace get closer to the cave, they notice a lack of life and feel distant tremors. Oliver doesn't think much of it but Horace is skeptical.
Once they get to the cave, they see a dragon guarding the entrance of the cave. Oliver who didn't notice the dragon at first is caught and is being suffocated by the dragon. Horace uses magic to freeze the dragon with the nearby water.
Horace passes out and Oliver goes on to get the plant of life. When he finds out it's real he become ecstatic.
Oliver and Horace rush home hoping to make it in time to give the plant to his mom.
As Oliver and Horace see the village, they hear a roar in the distance that seems to grow louder. Another dragon is behind them chasing quickly. The village leader runs from the village to stop the dragon from taking the plant of life back. The village leader is able to stop the dragon but dies doing so.
