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

25. Three Sightings, Two Attacks

"Well," Ocello started. Her voice was croaky and her throat was oddly dry. "It started when that dragon attacked the castle during the Baron's banquet. I was stuck...and the beast was coming towards me...and I heard it."

"Can you remember what it said?" asked Kytra.

"Not quite," Replied Ocello, "But I remember it said my name,"

"Your name..." Kytra seemed to lose focus for a moment, but her gaze returned soon enough. Before she could speak, however, Pike said something strange.

"Was it the dragon talking?" He asked Ocello.

"No," Ocello said instantly. She remembered that the dragons jaws had been open, but instead of speaking they had been throwing out spikes of fire.

"Dragons cannot speak...in a language most people can understand," Replied Kytra.

"Do you know much about dragons?" Asked Fletch.

"I know a little," said Kytra. "I have traveled through many kingdoms in my lifetime and a few of them had dragons...but no kingdom had dragons quite as ferocious as Heriven. Why do you ask?"

"Because dragons haven't attacked here for almost fourteen years, and now we have seen three in the last week," said Pike.

"Three?" Asked Kytra. "The only one I know of was the attack on the castle,"

Ocello was also puzzled, for she had only seen the dragons that attacked Fletch and the castle.

"First, there was the one at the castle. I also saw a dragon in the lake," Pike said.

"What?!" Gasped Ocello and Fletch simultaneously.

Pike nodded grimly. "I...er...forgot to tell you,"

Kytra ignored Ocello and Fletch's stunned faces and look at Pike. "That's two," she said. "When was the third sighting?"

"Not long ago," said Fletch suddenly. "I was attacked near the forest."

Kytra's eyes widened, and her mouth opened slightly as a look of realisation swept across her face.

"Three dragon sightings...two attacks..."
She stood up. Ocello, Pike and Fletch all looked up at her. "I remember a conversation I heard outside of my tent once," she said. "It was between two people - they were old peasants. They said that just before the Queen died, there were three dragon sightings" - Kytra avoided Ocello's eyes - "And three before the Old King! Why, it's so clear now - three sightings and two attacks means Death is among the royalty!"

And almost on cue, a horn sounded from outside the tent, and a voice called.

"Hark! Say your prayers! Osslor has fallen! THE KING IS DEAD!"
