10. The Dragon

Esmeralda sighed quietly, her green eyes still locked on me. It seemed like an age before she shifted her gaze to her half empty plate, waving her hand for a maid to refill her cup of tea. A short woman appeared out of nowhere with a large teapot in her hands. She poured lemon tea into the queens cup, steam rising from the liquid abyss. Then she tottered round the table, checking everyones cup was full, before filling up mine.

"He's attacked the neighboring county." Said the queen suddenly, surprising me. Her eyes were averting mine.

"Who has?" I asked nevously, aware that the teapot was shaking, and valencia had frozen with her fork halfway to her mouth.

She hesitated for a second. "The dragon." Esmerelda whispered. The two words seemed to vibrate around the room, filling my ears like a childs scream. 

They all seemed so scared of this dragon. Yet, they wanted me to kill it. Me, the guy who got scared watching harry potter and the chamber of secrets. Me, the one who always jumps when someone creeps up on him. Me, the guy who has never fought in his life. Brilliant.

"How much damage had it done?" I found myself asking, not surprised about the fear in my voice. Esmerelda looked me dead in the eyes, a small, trembling smile played forcefully on her lips. I felt a surge of horror flow through me, the silence was worse than an answer. I looked back at her, not blinking, and held her gaze. She opened her mouth to reply to me, but at that second, she collapsed onto the floor.

I stood up quickly, banging my elbow on the table to see if she was alright. A nurse had appeared instantly, and was waving her fingers above the queens head and babbling in a different language. Esmeralda started to stir, then raised her head from the floor and looked around in wonder.

"What just happened?" She asked dazedly.

"You fainted, mum." Valencia replyed.

"No, no. That's not it." She muttered firmly. I glanced worridly at valencia.

"Come on mum, lets get you to bed." Valencia suggested soothingly. I slipped my arm around the queens small waist and helped her up, her slim body feeling as if it were to break any minute.

"I had a... Vision, a terrible, terrible vision." Esmeralda murmured softly to no one in particular. Valencia stopped dead in her tracks. Her hands started gripping her mum tighter. A look of dread filled her eyes.  She slowly licked her soft lips before facing Esmeralda.

"What was in the vision?" She asked softly, trying to keep the tremble out of her voice.

"My death."
