The Last Moon Dragon

PSA to idiots on the internet who think it's ok to plagiarise, this story has already been reposted once by a user on wattpad and I (OP / author) reported them immediately. Don't copy and paste other people's stuff. It's against the law. Think of your own idea before stealing an 11 year old's.

CAUTION: TWO YEAR OLD DRAFT VERSION. FULL OF SPELLING MISTAKES AND OTHER GRAMMATICAL ERRORS. "The kingdom of Heriven isn't exactly the best place to live. Ruled by a twisted King and a power-hungry Baron, the poor exist to serve the rich. Attacks from other kingdoms have finally ceased over hundreds of years, but only because of a bigger problem. Other places have infestations of lice and vermin, Heriven has dragons. Although there has not been a dragon sighted in the kingdom for over a decade, and the people are at ease, it won't be long before it all changes, and a legendary dragon shall make its reappearance...This was voted best Fantasy Movella 2012

1. Prologue

(Fourteen Years Ago)

Queen Ophelia lay in her bed, surrounded by her ladies in waiting. Her skin was ghostly pale and her eyes shut tight. She had just given birth to a baby girl.

"Give her to me. Let me hold her." she murmured. Her lips barely moved as she spoke.

One of the ladies in waiting, a wide-set woman called Agatha, handed the bundle of blankets to the Queen, her hands shaking.

Queen Ophelia held her baby close, an expression of longing on her face. The baby girl opened her blue eyes wide, gazing intently at her mother.

"What will her name be, your Grace?" asked a maidservant, timidly.

"...Ocello. Her name will be Ocello. Nothing more, nothing less. Ocello."

The Queen opened her eyes and looked out of the leaded window. The full moon shone brightly down, slashing through her bedchamber.

"Such a beautiful night." she sighed. "I am glad I have such a lovely view to remember when I go."

"Your grace, you cannot mean..." started a maidservant, in horror, but it was too late.

The Queen looked out at the night for one last second, then lay back on her swansdown pillow, and closed her eyes, as if to sleep.

Her maidservants tried to rouse her, but in their hearts they knew that she would not wake. Their beloved Queen was dead.

The baby, Princess Ocello, began to cry.
