“This is absolutely stunning, Valentino. Where did you get this?” I look up at him, speechless.
“Come with me.” He rides between the trees, further onto the path Javier told me to go. “I told you, you wouldn’t be going alone. This world needs you and that means we’re going to help you. You have the protection of dragons. That sword isn’t from me.”
“Who is it from?” I laugh, a little confused.
“Me.” The voice is inside my head. It’s the deepest voice I’ve ever need, but lulling. I look up and almost fall off Star. Oh my goodness, there’s a dragon in front of me. Pretty sure I wasn’t expecting that. In fact, I hadn’t realized dragons were real.
My heart rate is three times the speed it should be. I can’t move, I can’t breathe. There’s a real life dragon in front of me. He’s huge – massive. His scales are teal with streaks of purple. Down his stomach is white. His eyes are a mesmerizing purple that match his mismatched scales.
“Welcome home, princess.” He steps closer, examining me. His wings brush the trees on either side of the path. He could eat me in one bite and he’s currently stalking around me like he wants to. “I am Fuentes, and I am not here to harm you, only to help you. You are far too important to eat” He chuckles. My entire body feels the rumble.
“Thank you?” I meant to sound strong but my thank you comes out as more of a question. Valentino isn’t helping either.
“That sword is more than it appears. I advise you to take care of it. Watch after it. And when you are at the brink of failing, it will be your greatest help.” He lowers his head, bowing – to me.
“Thank you.” I say, stronger this time. I wonder if Valentino can hear what this dragon is saying, or just what’s coming out of my mouth. Fuentes. I need to remember that name.
“Be on your journey. You will need all the daylight you can get. Be safe, princess.” The trees almost fall over as he flaps his wings and takes off into the sky.
“I, I, – I just met a real dragon!” If I wasn’t on Star, I probably would’ve passed out. Instead I take deep breathes and try to focus on the task at hand.
