The tales of old with dragons flying always excited Ariela. The stories told around the fire of those who did not fight the dragons but did something greater in deed, they rode them...

What if the tales of old were really not all forgotten, what if the dragons dead to the world were not dead at all, what if they were still out there, watching and waiting for the day to come when a rider would be chosen...


5. danger is coming

"We need to leave now!" My father exclaims, my mother then saw the note in my hand and the dragon next to me. She flew to my side and told me how proud of me she was. I sked what we needed to do and my father produced me with a bag. He said to out the dragon inside, he and my mother had everything else. We turned to leave but then I remembered something. My amulet, a sculpture of a dragon was carved into to the wood. It was given to me by my grandfather, he used to tell me all about the riders. He said it would protect me in times of need.
