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.


5. The Start Of My Plan

   I have cut my hair as similarly to Josh's as I could, in the style aswell. I've been practicing my manly voice, as similar as my father as I can get. Worst of all, I am wearing my father's old linen shirt. It smells like him, like cuddles late at night when I was scared or like early morning chicken feeds in the harsh winter. I miss him so much, wearing this shirt I feel like he's there with me. Watching over me .I think to myself, he will see that my plan is fullfilled, I know he will. This gives me a sense of relief.

   I haven't seen my horrible mother in three days, she hasn't even reported my father's death. She dosen't know about my plan, my hair or the fact I'm leaving and might never come back, I like it that way. I grab my light leather satchel and sling it over my shoulder. I open the stubborn door and stop as it creaks. It needs oil, but things like that were my Father's domain. I sigh at the memory of him.

I creep down the wooden stairs and into our pitch-black hallway. I light one of the lanterns and scribble a rough note for my mother. She has to know where I've gone. Not that she'll care though, I don't tell her exactly where I'm going. My note reads...

Mother, gone away for a few months, don't know when I will come back, I might not at all.

Do not worry, I will be safe,

From Bella

   I blow out the lantern carefully, its very early in the morning. Before dawn. I sneak out of the the door and into the quiet, cobbled street, I tiptoe to the centre of the village. I hear the sounds of hooves echoing around me, I run into the welcoming shadows of an alleyway. They set up their table and chairs and wait. I creep out of the shadows and into the light of their oil lantern.They spot me and look quizically. I walk casually to their table and sign my name. They look up and the older, wiser of the two laughs. It fills me with rage. It reminds me of Josh, his face, his handsome face.

   The younger one looks me up and down and tells me in a girly way...

" Too weak! I'm sorry but is 'ya a girl? Seriously now!"

   I am fuming, tears well up in my eyes. I run away from them mocking and jeering and back to the farm. By the time I reach there my legs ache and I'm puffing and panting. When I reach there I see that the lights in my mother's bedroom are on. I cannot face her now so I run to the barn with the hole in the roof. The barn where Fireseeker used to live, I run to the place where he used to sleep and curl up into a ball.

   I don't know how long I am there beccause I fell into a dreamless sleep, I woke a few times and walked around the hay filled barn. Once I could hear my mother walking by the barn, going to feed the chickens most probably. She is whistling loudly and merrily, how I loathe her.

   But I have a plan now, I will train harder in this barn and steal food from my ignorant Mother, I will work, work to see Fireseeker and travel to the East to apply again, I will train hard and I will join the battle. I will
