I glanced at their table as the younger man shrugged and fished something from his shirt-pocket.
“That doesn’t matter,” he said, handing a small compass to the other. “Would you want it to if it were you? Or one of yours?”
“Town would still be there if she had been,” the old-timer declared. But he took the compass anyway, opened it, and grunted.
I inspected my tankard and decided on a refill. Silence hung over the corner as the waitress took my order and asked if I wanted more soup.
“Not now, but more bread, please.” She nodded and headed for the kitchen, brunette ponytail swinging. A chair creaked and the elder leaned forward.
"Listen, Zathery,” he said as if explaining to a five-year-old. “You can’t just go picking around a dragon’s cave because s
Draco's BirthIt is said that there was once a great dragon that slept in the bowels of the earth at the time of its creation, and so great was its strength that even the gods didn't dare to combat it. Mighty thought the dragon was, however, it wasn't an evil beast. The dragon simply meant to be left alone to sleep. Though it was peaceful, the fire in its belly was too hot, and the earth was dry and inhospitable, and the gods sorrowed that the Earth would never flourish so long as the dragon slept beneath the ground. The gods, finally tired of the barren, dead world that the dragon's fire created, banded together to wake the beast. They tried for an age, and at last succeeded. When it finally stirred, its slight movements were so great that the earth was rent open. It tore its way out of the shell of the earth, forming mountains and valleys where its claws dug at the ground and tail dragged. A great flap of his wings took it into the air, and then into the sky beyond. It soared the heavens, seMore Like This
Knocker's PoolThe path began to slope sharply downwards and became little more than a line of bare soil amongst the pine needles. The roots of the trees projected up through the earth and made useful ridges for them to lock their feet against. Every so often, Tom turned and helped Alice down over the places where the earth had dropped away, leaving a high step.More Like This
It took a good hour and a half before they reached the low of the valley. The air was cooler and moist as the track wound around outcrops of earth and trees. It looked to Tom like there had once been a river that ran down here, long enough ago that the bed was now almost indistinguishable from the rest of the ground.
“This had better be impressive, Crowley,” Alice called, from where she was walking by Tom’s side.
Crowley, who was up ahead, half turned. Tom didn’t need to be any closer to see the look of hurt on his face.
“I promise you’ll like it,” he said, forlornly. To his dismay, Tom thought he saw

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

I will admit that I was not prepared for the journey. Within the first few days, most of my supplies ran low and hunting was not my forte. However, I had information of the dragon’s whereabouts and this was the place.
Dark mountains loomed overhead, casting shadows over the forest area. If I had a steed, it would’ve ran away in fear, but was I scared?
I swallowed the moment I arrived at the mouth of the cave and saw black. There wasn’t even a hint of light, but then again this was a dragon’s adobe I was entering into. With a bit of tattered cloth and old twigs, I made a torch and ve

Chapter 1: The Dragon Pit
The Prophecy of the Dragon Blood: When dragon and human blood shall mix, wondrous changes shall occur. Human shall acquire dragon features, and obtain a wondrous gift. At night a transformation shall occur; by day human, by night dragon. The Chosen One shall have these things; shall learn to use and control the powers he was given. Destined to throw down the Dragon Lord Telniar, who is the cruel ruler of Earth. When done the Chosen One's destiny is, when proven himself worthy, he shall shed his human skin and forevermore be a dragon.
The year is 2014, and dragons have inhabited all of Earth. They came through a magical portal from their homeland of Alagast in the year 2000, and the Dragon Lord Telniar has taken human form, ruling cruelly ever since. In the city of San Francisco, a seventeen year old boy, Bardy Goon, was just getting out of school. His friend Kyle was waiting for him outside. Bardy saw his friend and smiled, walk
The Dentist and the Dragon Njall made his way up the side of the mountain and cursed his village elders. While they sat snug and warm in their houses, he was forced to endure the cold and the wind and the rain. And soon, he’d be face to face with a dragon.More Like This
This was a job that should have been given to a real warrior, but the elders had argued that with the raiding season well underway, the village needed all the warriors they had to defend against possible invaders. Njall scowled. They could at least have given him a sword. His dentist tools wouldn’t be much use against a giant, fire-breathing lizard.
The cave came into view as he rounded a bend in the path. A steady trail of smoke told him the dragon was at home. That was unfortunate for Njall. He had hoped the dragon wouldn’t be home
The dragon hadn’t been seen in a week. The elders mused that perhaps dragons slept through the winter. An ear-splitting shriek put that theory right t
The Dragon's SpellOnce there was a girl who longed for a more exciting life than that of a tailor’s daughter. Unfortunately, a tailor her father was, and so her days were filled with bolts of cloth, spools of thread, and more pins and needles than she could count – not the beautiful dresses, powerful steeds and shining knights she dreamed of. And so, since she could not truly have the life she wanted, she simply pretended it was so.More Like This
This would have been all very well if she only pretended to herself, but as frequently as she could she dressed herself in her best frock, went outside the town to pick flowers for a woven crown, and told every person she met that she truly was a princess, though in disguise to hide from the mighty dragon who would otherwise carry her off.
Many dismissed her lie as child’s play, but others believed it, and soon word spread of a young princess disguised as a town-girl. As it happened, a dragon truly did inhabit a mountain in the region, and when it heard thi
