Dragon Scales

The name's Bella, Bella Grande. I'm a dragon rider. Well I was until the terrible day when my dragon, Fireseeker was taken away from me to be trained for the mighty war of our nation. My father lost his life trying to save Fireseeker. Now I will avenge him. I will kill the gorgeous boy who killed him.


13. Preparing For My First Battle

   I awoke this morning to find chaos surronding me, I got dressed and hurried into the main cabin. I wasn't noticed by any of the half-naked man. I desperately looked through the crowd of people for Josh. Then finally I saw Josh, he was  dressed and shouting at people to get dressed. He sent everyone who was ready to the barns to wait outside for the keys. I ran over to him, pushing the people out of my way. When I finally spoke to him and asked what was going on he replied...

"The Eastern army have attacked, they have taken over a few small villages and towns and they are making their way to the central city fast. We need to stop them. This is our first battle! Come on!"

   I was in shock for a moment, my hometown was eastern, did this mean that my hometown might be home to Eastern fighters. My mother? Was she dead? Deep down I still loved her, no matter how much pain she had caused me. Josh shook me back into reality and smiled, then he led me out into the open and gave me the keys, he told me to unlock all of the barns and let the men in. I ran to each barn and unlocked them all with haste. The men ran inside and harnessed up the first dragon they saw.

   By the time I had unlocked all of the doors all of the men were out of the cabin and rushing around. I ran over to Fireseeker in barn I and put his harness on. Everyone was on their dragons. Everyone looked ready for war, they all were scowling and grunting. I did not want to be the oppostion at the moment.

   We flew our dragons out of the barn. The first time we had ever done it like that, I was the last to leave. Under my breath I told Fireseeker...

"Do not worry Fireseeker, we can do this."

    I flew him out of the barn and joined the other dragons who were hovering in the air. They were all pointing towards Josh who was giving instructions to them.

"This is 'ya'll's first battle, work well in your groups and listen to me, Bella and 'ya group leaders. We will win this, we are more skilled than them. Now, remember, when we get there 'ya will assemble in formation 'A' so that's each group in a line, behind eachother. Group one first, then two, then so on and so on. We can do this! We can win this batle and keep the West as ours!"

   Every man here roared with excitment, that's one of the things that I love about people from the West, they are brave. They love their fair and kind King. They are willing to die for him, die for their nation.

   I could fell Father was watching me, protecting me I would come out of this alive I could tell. So that's how I set off for war. That's how my life turned around. Forever.
