Pt. 8 A Trip to the Dragon Realm
I slept in my bed. Or whatever you could call it. I had been dreaming about what I'll be like when I'm fully dragon. I imagined that I'd be somewhat short since I'd be a dragon child. I dreamt that I had a long snout and two beautiful horns growing out of my head. My horns in my dream were a bloodish red. My nostrils were instead two sli

Chapter 13: Defeat & Revelations
Titus started to come to. Still dazed and out of it, he watched the ceiling for a few seconds before his mind was finally able to focus. Once his mind was fully functional, he sat up and looked around, noticing that he was in someones house He stood up and looked around the place. It was all too familiar. Titus felt like he had once been to this house. So long ago
He walked over to the sliding glass doors and looked outside. It was raining. The rain, guided by the wind, drummed on the sliding glass doors. It was a soothing sound. The sound of the rain was comforting to Titus. He looked out into the yard of the house. There was a single piece of patio furniture set up outside as well as a toy fire truck and a doll just laying out there in the rain. He stepped away from the doors and headed upstairs. But as he made his way upstairs, something caught his eye. It was a series of pictures. Three to be exac

Chapter 15: That Final Moment of Peace
As the portal closed behind Titus, he wondered if he had made the right decision allowing Drake to spend the night in the dragon realm. The knowledge that Theian was in the dragon realm made Titus uneasy, especially with Drake still there. He knew his parents would protect Drake but who would be protecting them?
Before he opened the door, Titus looked to the sky. He watched as the clouds slowly rolled by. It was relaxing. As he watched the clouds, he remembered back when Drake was only five. They would go sit in the backyard and just watch the sky. Titus also remembered back to when he himself was just a child. He, Ben and Bens dad would also watch the clouds. Titus smiled to himself. He hoped that when, or if he and everyone else came back, he, Ben and Drake could just sit outside and watch the clouds together. Just like old times.
Titus knocked on the door. As soon as the

Chapter 16: Sarahs Past
That night, the small town lay in ruin. Its entire population, gone in the blink of an eye. Buildings lay in ruin, some almost completely destroyed. Several homes were lit ablaze as the ashes rose into the air. Near the front of the town were the bodies of four of its residents. Three of them so badly burnt that no one would be able to make out who they were. The fourth person was impaled by Alex, eventually bleeding to death, the last thing he saw being all those from his town being taken away. He lay in a pool of his own blood as he slowly painfully died
Elsewhere in town, the sounds of triumphant laughter could be heard. The dragons who were responsible for the towns destruction celebrated triumphantly as they raided the town bar, drinking their share of alcohol. As soon as they had finished a bottle, they would just break it against the wall afterward. And yet, no matter how much they drank, they stil

Chapter 17: Heading Out
"Gah! What's your problem, Sarah?!" Titus exclaimed.
"My problem?! What's yours?!"
"What are you talking about?" Titus asked, not understanding why she was so mad.
"I mean why are you being so mean to Rick?" Sarah explained.
"Well I " Titus stuttered.
"I I just don't trust him. That's all."
Sarah sighed angrily. Just as she was about to speak, she noticed everyone looking at them.
"We'll talk about this later. But I will tell you this: You be nice to Rick, Titus? Got it?! He helped me through the most painful part of my life." Sarah whispered.
Sarah opened the door to Lucas' car and got in, riding shotgun. Everyone walked up to Titus, confused about what just happened.
"Everything OK?" Ben asked.
"Let's just go " Titus said equally as angry as his wife.
Titus and Lucas started their cars back up and drove away from the park, continuing their journey. Sarah rode with Lucas this time, as did Rick. Sean
Little Boy Dragon pt. 2My name is Akira. I used to be a normal boy. That is until I ate what I thought was chocolate. Somehow this drug caused me to transform into a dragon.

Since that day, I've been staying with my brother and my sister until I could find a way to turn back into a human.Little Boy Dragon pt. 28 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
On to Part 2.
Around me there was nothing but darkness. Endless darkness. I was unable to move. I couldn't move any part of my body. I didn't like this place. It was too cramped. Just then, a crack came through the darkness. Bringing with it a thin ray of light. It felt strange. It was almost like I was...hatching.
I awoke with a startle, jolting my now draconic head up. I wondered why I'd have a dream like that. It wasn't like I was born a dragon. Even if I DID have a dragon's form now.
I extended my front legs out and jumped off the guest room's bed. I walked out of the room and into my brother's computer room. I knew he didn't like me using h

Chapter 20: Theian's Decision Pt. 2
At the small pond in the woods were Jake, Alex, and Theian. Jake and Alex sat on a log while Theian stood, his back turned to them, his head to the ground.
"So you're going to join Doulstraz ?" Alex asked sadly.
Theian sighed. "I don't know yet I'm still trying to figure out what I should do "
"You should stay with us, of course!" Alex exclaimed. "Jake and I are your friends, Theian, remember? 'Sides I thought it was Doulstraz who killed your mother?"
"Did he? I'm starting to wonder about that myself."
Alex stood up and walked over to Theian. "Theian don't go. Please " He begged, his voice becoming strained. Jake had never seen Alex like this. Was he really that sad about Theian possibly leaving? Jake stood up and walked up to Alex, placing a hand on his shoulder. Jake looked into Alex's eyes, noticing a great sadness swelling within them.
"Jakol Alex, can you two do me one last favor?" Theian asked

Titus and Girido eagerly watched the rubble, anticipating even the slightest movement from Theian. Nearly his entire body had been covered in the ruined motel. All except for his right hind leg, which stuck out of a small hole as well as his tail which rested on two wooden boards.
Girido scoffed. "So that's it? He dies by having a building fall on him? And they were calling me weak."
He sighed. "Oh, well. Looks like I get to fight you now. Think you can defeat me without your little rugrat here?"
Titus glared at Girido with a scowl on his snout. "Okay, I'll fight you. But first I want to ask you a question."
"Well, go ahead. What's your question?" Asked Girido.
"A while ago, you said that you follow Saulstrance because you respect him."
"Yeah? What about it?"
"I'm just wondering: What made you want to join him in the first place? What about him do you respect?" Titus asked.
Girido snickered a little. "I respect everything abou

Just as the two half-dragons prepped themselves, a loud sound was heard. Everyone turned around and saw that in the distance, Titus was flying towards them. His large wings beat at the air. As he drew closer to his friends, Titus began to lose altitude. Still exhausted from his fight with Eig'nia, he struggled to remain airbourne and eventually, his wings gave out and he plummeted to the ground, landing next to a nearby plateau. Slowly, he tried to walk over to his friends, only able to take five steps before losing his last ounce of strength. He reverted to his human form as Kyle, Sarah, and Jessie ran over to him. They helped Titus up as Kyle and Sarah threw his arms over their shoulders to help give him some leverage. Slowly, step by step, the three walked in synch together with Jessie going ahead of them until they had gotten to Titus' car. Jessie opened the door to the passenger's seat and Titus sat down.

Crystal sat on the edge of the back seat, looking down as she cupped her hands together, only looking up to catch a glimpse of Titus and the others walking towards the car. Drake and Sean were sweating in fear of being yelled at by their parents.
With a stern look on his face, Titus walked up to his son and asked him, "Drake, would you care to explain to us what Crystal is doing here?"
Crystal jumped off the seat and walked in front of Drake, her eyes still focused to the ground.
"I'm sorry, Mr.Flamel! It's my fault! I hid in the back of your car before you all left. Please don't blame Drake!" She exclaimed.
"Do your parents know where you are at least?" Titus asked.
"Well actually, Mr.Flamel. I told them you were going on vacation and that you said I could go along too "
Titus rubbed his temples in annoyance. He paced back and forth for a short time then abruptly came to a stop. Letting out a hefty sigh, Titus shook his

"The third possibility is that I decide to stay with Saulstrance and his men. If I do decide to stay with them Then I will not hesitate to kill you, Doulstraz." Theian said.
Theian's third possibility just made Titus all the more confused. Especially considering all the information Theian had provided them regarding Saulstrance's goals.
Theian unfurled his wings once more. But not before leaving the group with one more cryptic piece of information.
"Oh, yeah. Doulstraz, before I go, I have a word of warning for you and your friends." He said in a gravely voice.
"Of all of Saulstrance's Followers, there's one dragon that you need to be wary of." Theian started to explain.
"Moreso than the rest of you?" Ben asked.
"This dragon is different from the rest of us. This dragon is purely psychotic."

The man noticed my brother and raced onto the train. My brother made a quick dash towards the train, just barely boarding.
"What'dya want with me?!" The man shouted.
"Give us the drug!" My brother demanded.
"What drug?" the man asked.
"The drug you used to turn my little brother into a dragon!" My brother replied.
"WHAT?!" The man thought out loud.
As the two bickered back and fourth, I noticed something about this guy.
"Bro, can I talk to you?" I asked.
"What? What's up, Akira?"
"Bro, that's not him."
"What do you mean 'that's not him'?" My brother asked.
"That's not the guy who did this to me. He's not that tall and...he doesn't have as scary a look as the other guy." I said.
"Did that stuffed animal just talk?" The man asked.

I should probably introduce myself first. My name is Akira. Actually that's my Japanese name. I am commonly known on the internet as Animeboye. This is a story of something unfortunate that happened to me during my visit in California.
In the car sat me, two of my friends, and my brother and sister in law. We tried to figure out what we were going to do.
The roof of the car appeared as if it was going to cave in on us.
"Akira, could you please tell your dragon buddy to GET OFF THE TOP OF THE CAR?!" My brother yelled.
"Hey, it's the only way for him to travel. Besides, people would be in shock if they saw a dragon flying around." I tried to explain.

Time had passed and still Titus remained in the exact same spot, not moving an inch, just staring into the sky. His friends and family watched him, curious as to what he was thinking about. Ben walked up to Titus and placed his hand on his brother's shoulder.
"Look, Titus I know how you feel. It hurts. It hurts terribly. But we need to keep going, man. Your mom and dad, and Lucas and his boys are all waiting for us. C'mon." Ben said.
"Yeah " Titus agreed as he rubbed his eyes.
Ben walked Titus back to his car and opened the door for him. Titus sat down, grabbed the steering wheel, and plopped his head on it.
"Titus How about I drive?" Asked Sarah.
Without saying a word, Titus removed himself from the driver's seat and walked around to the back of his car and opened the back door on the right side. Everyone else piled into the car soon after. As they made their way to Baker Valley, almost everything was dead silent

Two days had passed since the attack on the mall. Since then, both Titus and Drake had made a speedy recovery and were getting ready to go back home. Titus walked over to the closet in his hospital room and got all of his stuff out. As they stepped out into the lobby, they saw Titus parents sitting in the lobby, waiting for them.
Grandma! Grandpa! Drake shouted with glee as he ran over to his grandparents, giving them a big hug.
Drake, were still in a hospital, you know. Scolded Titus.

Everyone turned around to find an older woman standing in the doorway. She had a slightly wrinkled face and long, gorgeous silvery hair.
"Umm Can we help you with something?" Titus asked.
The woman didn't say anything.
"Was there someone you were looking for?" Sarah asked.
"Yes. I was looking for him." Said the woman, pointing an aged finger at Titus.
"Me?" Titus asked, having no clue as to why a woman he had seemingly never met would be looking for him.
Titus had no idea who this woman was. He almost certainly had never met her before today and was baffled by how someone he had never met seemed to know him. He assumed that she could have been one of the residents of Baker Valley coming to thank him and his friends.
Drake carefully watched this old woman. Unlike his father, he was certain that he had seen her somewhere before. He tried to recall just where. Soon it came to him. He was certain he knew who she was.

As the car pulled into the small, dusty town, it was met with the cheers of the energetic townsfolk. Upon stepping out of the car, Titus and Eig'nia were approached by their friends and family, who, although were more than happy and relieved to see them, grew worried when they saw that Titus' mother, Drake, Sean, and Crystal weren't with them.
"Titus, where are Drake and the others?" Sarah asked worriedly.
Titus pointed his thumb behind him. Following shortly behind the car were Titus' mom and the kids. Upon landing, the three of them hopped off the dragoness's back and Drake and Sean ran over to their father and mother. As Sarah placed her hands on her son's shoulders, she noticed that his left arm was broken. So Drake explained to his mom that his arm had been broken during the battle with Saulstrance. The news of this made Sarah feel somewhat uneasy. But those feelings of unease couldn't triumph over her relief at having

Jake panted as beads of sweat ran down from the top of his head. There were four unlit tiki torches lined up in front of him, two of which had been slightly charred on their sides. His father sat on the picnic table behind him, arms folded and his left leg resting over his right.
"You're still having a bit of trouble." Saulstrance said bluntly.
"I know, Dad It's just well." Jake said, breathing heavily and wiping the sweat from his forehead.
"Well, what?" Saulstrance asked.
"It's just that I'm not sure how I can learn this on my own! Can't you help me, even a little?" Jake asked.
"Jakol, it's not that I don't want to teach you. You see, half-dragons have far more complex and diverse powers than dragons. Perhaps, had you been born a full dragon, then I may have been more helpful in teaching you about your powers."

Titus' hands slapped against his knees as he raised his head. He took in a deep breath and exhaled. The left side of his face began to sting slightly. He rubbed that part of his face in an attempt to numb the pain. As he did so, he recalled the events that had happened prior to him arriving back in town: First Saulstrance appeared, then Titus tried to attack him, and this in turn resulted in Saulstrance digging his claws deep into Titus' face
"Hmm " Titus ran his hand over the part of his face which had been stinging. This made Titus curious. So he stood up and looked over the side, noticing his car parked underneath the foot of the steps. He walked down the steps, to his car and glanced into the mirror. Upon moving his hand from his face, he noticed that the wounds inflicted onto him by Saulstrance still remained, but had begun to heal somewhat. He also noticed that they looked remarkably small

Out of all the stories I posted on Deviantart, I'd have to say the Dragon's World series is my favorite. I enjoyed developing the characters and getting the reader to know about them and, hopefully, to care about them.
Most of the setting, such as the location of Angela's shop was actually based on San Diego. Wether or not it was supposed to be set in San Diego is up to the reader. Angela's shop's location in particular was based on a strip mall my brother took me to on my first visit out there. The

"Wow! Look at all of these!" Jessie exclaimed excitedly.
Jessie browsed the small bookstore, accompanied by Sarah and her son Kyle. The shelves were wooden and quite dusty. They contained books both old and new although the old far outranked the new. There were only about eight shelves in the entire store and they were neatly lined up in two rows of four. By the store's left window was a rack of comics.
Like a kid in a toy store, Jessie eagerly walked down each aisle with Kyle and Sarah following behind her. She carefully browsed each row of books from top to bottom.
"I never pegged your mom as being a bookworm." Said Sarah.
"Yeah She's really taken to reading ever since me and my sister left home. I guess it gives her something to do when she's not at work." Said Kyle.

With this long tale at last concluded, we journey back one last time to check on Titus and his friends.
Titus returned to his job. Of course he had a difficult time explaining to his boss that the reason he was gone for so long was because he was trying to stop an evil dragon who wanted to conquer the world. Every weekend, he would travel to the dragon realm to visit his parents and pay his respects to Angela and Theian.
Sarah continued to attend Angela's shop. Over time, the shop would be frequented by those both young and old, eventually becoming the number one hot spot in the strip mall. Word had it that Sarah planned to add toys and possibly even video games to the store's selection. It was her hope that she would be able to change Angela's shop from a simple plush shop into a successful, independent toy store.
Now and then Lucas would go to visit the grave of his late wife. He would tell her all about the journey he went on with his friends,
