Dragonslayer's TwistDragonslayer's Twist
Smoke filled my nostrils as I took a deep breath and looked around at the halfway burnt down town. My sword swung idly from my side as I strolled into the inn; inside soot covered villagers were yelling about a dragon destroying their town and what they should do about it. The town's elder rubbed his wrinkled forehead and finally stood saying
"Please good people please silence," and everyone did; so he continued "It is obvious that we have two options one beg the queen to forfeit some knights to our cause or two we pack and leave."
Again chaos broke loose as the villagers heard what they thought was their only options. I pushed my way to the head of the crowd and jumped up onto the stage that the elder was sitting upon.
"OR YOU HAVE OPTION THREE," I yelled and everyone stopped to look at me. I felt pride rush through me as I stood tall in my dragon skin boots, gauntlets, tunic, and shield.
The elder looked at me and finally signaled for silence "Who are you m

Accidents can cripple, hurt, and cause destruction. Well a little known fact is; accidents can also reveal secrets dark secrets. Some secrets we keep to save others some we keep just to save our reputations.
Then we have secrets that are kept to protect ourselves from serious harm. I learned this the hard way; now here I am standing before three creatures of legend. Shaking and in fear for my life just because I had an accident.
The day started off like any other day. My small suburban neighborhood was silent like it should be. The forest that was behind our community was alive with only chirpings of birds and other various animals.
I was laying in my front yard soaking up the heat of the day; hoping that summer would go by slowly without anyt

"Oh my head " I said as I sat up "Where am I?" I asked realizing that I was in a dark, damp cave. Light was shining at the end of the cave; I got up and ran towards the exit. The cave exit was very wide so I had a clear way out; outside the cave was a vast forest. The moon shone through the trees and a gentle breeze blew, the night air was warm.
I spotted a calm blue lake, I walked over and seen my reflection in the water. My messy brown hair, green eyes, and well tuned body, all looked back at me. The water was cold as I washed my face off, "Who are you?" I heard an angry female voice say. I turned around and seen a girl about my age standing by a huge pine tree.
"Oh thank god someone that can tell me what's going on." I said standing up, "Actually you better explain to me what you are doing here." The girl commanded of me, she had black hair, blue eyes, and a slim but muscular body. "I am sorry but I just woke up in a cave and I can't remember a thing except my name.

"Bent get up dude mom and dad want to get going like right now." A voice said to me through the darkness of the closet that I slept in.
Without even moving or lifting my head I replied groggily "Tell them I will be down later."
The closet door closed and I stood up; stretching from my head all the way to the end of my tail. M claws dug into the carpeted floor as the feeling of refreshment flowed through me. Kyle, the person who woke me, was downstairs talking to his parents.

A letter that is all it took for my life to be turned upside down. I had to make a decision between a friend and a passion. The choice between keeping that friend or destroying him.
I should explain what happened. On May fourth, 2012, dragons returned to the world. Not all people were a hundred percent human; a bloodline ran in people all around the world the world. This bloodline was of course draconic; for some reason the gene was reactivated in a bunch of random people.
Changing people of all ages, races, and gender into dragons. They are capable of speech and do not eat people for they have kept their intelligence. Still some humans did not trust these creatures, these men and women were called The Hunters.
Standing against the dragons; they only accepted the best fighters to slay these beasts. Claiming that the dragons would rise and destroy humans it left the remaining humans uneasy. How could one not fantasizing about fighting dragons even if

Rock 'n Roll that is the only thing that I live for. Loud music, head banging, partying it was all for the spirit of the music. My parents disowned me for my unnatural love for ear bleeding loud music. They called it trash, but I call it my life force.
Nothing would stop me from buying CD after CD of the stuff. It was funny because I would go home and my mother would yell, "JASON YOU SPENT YOUR CASH ON THAT CRAP AGAIN!?!"
I would just nod and rush past her to my room so I could listen to my new disc. I am sixteen; don't I deserve my own lifestyle different from theirs? Many parents would disagree but the kids thought different. Parents were controlling and that will never change.
One thing that would change though was

The sun felt good on my face; slowly I crawled out of my sleeping bag. Morning dew on the ground moistened my dried hands. I quietly slipped on my shoes; suddenly something fell from my hoodie. It fluttered to the ground; I reached down and picked up the object.
I was holding a letter in my hand. It contained no name; the only thing on the envelope was a dark sword. Without even thinking I already knew who wrote the letter. The most secretive group to walk the face of the earth; The Hunters.
My hands shook as I ripped the letter open. Carefully I slipped the message out of the envelope. It read "Announcing your opinion like that can get you killed. What you did was stupid and reckless; still it took guts. We could use someone like you; if you think you can take the heat."
My first reaction was shock; the world's greatest dragon slayers wanted me. Of all the people left after the change they wanted me. Only if I could take the heat though; they literally meant it

I was never a happy person in life but it got worse as time went on. Everyday it seemed like everyone was getting it better than me and all I could do was stand by watching. Work was a drag everyday I had to work the late shifts and early morning shifts trust me not a good combination. My boss was always a jerk greeting me everyday "Why the hell are you so late I am knocking an hour off your paycheck for today." The truth was I was never late I was early in fact.
Many people told me I should take a break and let all of my emotions come out instead of taking it everyday for "bad" things could happen.

There was no moon to light my way as I crept around the bunkhouse. I had to be very careful not to make any noise for if the guards roaming the yard caught me who knew what would happen. Slowly but surely, I made it to the corner of the building.
I quickly stuck my head out to find two draconic guards walking and talking together. "God get out of my way you lizards," I spat under my breath. The guards were coming my way and I had nowhere to hide unless; "Oh I am such and idiot" I told myself. Backing up from the wall I prepared to charge the wall.
With all of my agility I ran up the wall to the roof like I had done all my life. "I knew that freerunning would save me one day." Said I. The guards walked by not noticing me on the roof. Now I would freerun across the buildings to the main complex; hopefully Josh, Tom, and Amy would do their part.
As I jumped across the rooftops as I thought about what I was going to do tonight. My first night a

There went my plan for sleeping all day but they were going to have to deal with Mr. Grumpy-Dragon all day now. "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!" screamed my little eight year old brother.
My ear fin twitched in pain from the sudden loud noise and I rolled over throwing the pillow over my head. Why did they say it was my birthday anyways? They should now us dragons are hatched not birthed like humans its hatchday to me. I settled in my new position and attempted to go back to sleep.
This plan however was foiled as my little brother's friend got up and screamed with him "HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!"

"Fine... what is this surprise though? You have me on edge... STEAKHOUSE NIGHT!?!" I exclaimed, my stomach grumbled his agreement with me.
Unfortunately Granice shook her head and replied, "Its even better... life changing moment ahead, so be happy."
I nodded to show I understood and put a forced grin on my face. Suddenly we stopped by an icecream shop and Granice looked at me. "Can we get something to eat... I am starving." She put a paw to her stomach and held it there.

Low, dark grey clouds hovered over a wide, short brick building. Wind shook the few trees that stood in the small green yards that lay on either side of the two doors that made up the main entrance. A long gazebo, with a tin roof, hung over the entrance, support from two brick columns held it up. On each side of the doors, four windows peered out from the building. Orange and brown leaves blew down the street, around the numerous cars parked on the curb-side of the road.
Rustling from the leaves echoed through the eerily quiet town. All life seemed to have disappeared from the streets and outside world. Nothing moved or made a sound. The silence was broken by the fall of footsteps on the concrete sidewalk. A teen, dressed in a red winter-coat, blue jeans, and a pair of gray and green Nikes, quickly ran towards the big building.

Light, from an open window, gently filtered down onto a mess of brown hair. The owner of this hair was hidden under a blanket, on a bed. Sighing, the sleeping lump, in the bed sat up and the blanket fell down to reveal a boy almost going into manhood.

The Naga's Bite"Today is a perfect day to go camping," thought Amanda. Amanda was a country girl who loved going camping. If she was given a choice between a shopping day at a mall or a day outside, she would chose the great outdoors. Today she was hiking along a path in the woods, in her native state of Montana, and admired all the wild plants and creatures as she went. It was almost sunset and she was about to head home, then she noticed the strange track in the dust. The track was long and smooth. "It was not like a snake could make such a track?" she thought.The Naga's Bite2 years ago in Sketches More Like This
She noticed there were more tracks leading deeper into the forest. Being curious, she began to follow the tracks.

Derek had been enjoying it, as the cold weather had given him an excuse to stay indoors and play with his new computer. Today was different though.

He stared at the paper in disbelief, his cold blue eyes scanning it over, looking for where he had went wrong. He grimaced slightly, then changed his expression back to neutral, looking up at his English teacher who was sitting at a large brown desk, writing on something with a bright red pen.
The class bell rang, and students shouted with excitement, milling around him and exiting the classroom. He stayed seated, until only he and the teacher were left in the room.
He stood up and threw his bag over his shoulders, grunting slightly at the weight of text books and homework inside of it. It wasn't anything out of the ordinary though. He walked over to the teacher's desk and stopped, staring at the teacher.
The teacher slowly looked up, his expression changing to a weak, utterly fake smile.
"Sam. What's up?"
He decided to be frank. "Why did I get a 55 on this paper?" He dropped the paper on the desk, with a bit too much force, betraying his frustration.

Seth loved the way his room was always tidy. The way his brown computer desk was lined with books that were all alphabetically ordered made him happy knowing he would never loose anything.
Then Seth turned and looked at his walls they were the only things in his room that weren't neat. Posters covered the walls from base board to ceiling but not any old posters they were posters of dragons. Only Seth knew about his love for dragons and he intended to keep it a secret from everyone.
There was on wall that had one poster on it, it was of a red anthro dragon with the same color of eyes as Seth. It stood on its hind legs like a person and it had its arms crossed with a smirk on its face. This poster was Seth's favorite, every time Seth was around the poster he felt like it was connected to him.

"Well, how else was I supposed to get him? He spotted me, what other choice did I have? Surely, I could not fire on him..." the first voice muttered back.
