The Dragon in Me Part 8The moment I became aware of the world around me I knew there was something different. I felt the soft grass beneath my scales, I smelt the salty breeze from the sea and heard the waves crushing against the steep cliffs. Above the sounds of the sea I could hear the chirping of hundreds of birds. Their gorgeous music filled the air and made me feel happy. For one moment I enjoyed this moment of peace without thinking about where I was and how I got there.The Dragon in Me Part 84 years ago in Scraps More Like This
But this moment was over far too soon. I opened my eyes and inspected my environment. I lay at the edge of a forest, the thick trunks of the trees right next to me. It surrounded me to the north, east and west, but to the south there was the sea. About ninety feet away from me the cliffs fell down to the sea almost perpendicular. I slowly stood up and walked towards them completely taken in by the sight of the vast ocean. I had seen the sea quite a few times when I had been human but this had a completely different feeling to it.
