……Have you ever seen a dragon ? DRAGONS lived in the time when men had magical powers and great wonderful deeds were done by both.
Deep in the depths of the sea , among the floor beds , huge sea anemones bloomed . They were no ordinary sea creatures for
it was said , that when they bloom and start their dance with the waves , the dragons emerged and began their life .
They had a multitude of magical powers , being able to breathe underwater was one of them . These magnificent creatures varied in color and size . Perhaps , their special powers , also came from these sparkling colors . Their eyes were
sparkling gems of ruby, emeralds and diamonds ,and some had eyes behind
their enormous heads , which made them more powerful …….The sun was
brightly shining on this summer day ….
The world was not as it is today , it was fantasy
unimaginable in every wave , one can see magic in every whistle of the
wind . The Mermaids were playing on the shore ….….leaving their tails and walking on land . It is
the time, that Dragons are born , the time of year
after one hundred turns of the sun that finally the special sea
anemones would burst out silver , gold , magenta , and sapphire
sparkling translucent bubbles , that floated and rolled and hardened to
become the shell of the baby dragons…..The mermaids were the watchers , making sure that all the bubbles that
floated were safe. These were very special dragon eggs.. At
night , when the temperature of the sea has gone cold , the mermaids
covered the eggs with fire corrals for protection and heat. A row
of roving moray eels , would be seen slithering about dutifully
standing guard .
Deep within the farthest caves of
the sea the older dragons would leisurely take their time as they
smoked and puffed the delicious sea weeds that grew in giant
proportions giving nourishment and home to the different fishes that
swam the ocean.
As our tale evolves around Great Dom ,
as he was called , drowsily making smoke bubble rings in his dragon
lair , had an idea , he would try to unite all the Dragons. Why not ?,
he told himself , we are so special , and yet we declare war amongst
ourselves ….”Then all fighting should cease ,” he snorted, as more
tiny radiant bubbles sprayed around the lair .It is that time of the
century that dragons are born and just the right moment to be joyous ,
as they will multiply in numbers . And he snorted some more , until his
eyes could no longer fight the sleep that rocked him , as the current
rolled from side to side . caressing the huge
sea dragon to dreamland .
As these special beads took form and hardened , rocking and floating with each current that breezed by , one particular dragon bead was glowing . And a tiny hum could be heard , I would almost say it was a soft ” squeak ” , as it jumbled among the other beads . It was nearly time for these special beads to hatch and become the great magical dragons !
Down in the caverns , where the mermaids dwell , all waited in anticipation…For they were also the keepers of the “Book” , wherein all names and gender of the dragons were kept..So as the current flowed , they waited and waited and watched .
As one can see, they were special mermaids , who also walked on land as well as water , and all was written in the ” Book ” .
Crackling noises and scratches were heard that night as the fire corals covered the beads . And by the break of the morning light when the sun was peeping just above the horizon , as pink and orange rays emerge , a New Baby Dragon was born ….Quickly the
mermaids , scooped them out from the flowing bubbles that emerged and laid them on a large clam bed .
Such a sight to see , a baby dragon fast asleep…in a clam shell ! Dom , was so proud , he swaggered close , to see ..Soon there will be more , he told himself , and snorted and tilted his snout with glee ! As a spray of white foamy silver bubbles softly floated by . A new age of peaceful dragons , at last ! The thought completely engulf his war torn body…Peace at last !
He had asked all the Mer people to hid his plan . And this was to be carried out swiftly .! As time is magical in the world of fantasy . The dragons soon popped out of their beads , and started to develop. They were guided and taught LOVE , HUMILITY, COMPASSION and FORGIVENESS…These four basic virtues , were the key for their survival . One by one , they were made to understand the ways of the dragons, …They killed each other for greed , power and supremacy and now it is time to change all that , as foretold by the sands of time….
There is no time in magic land , so the dragons have grown almost in an instant….Drago , the first baby dragon born of the new era , was a curious one …Everyday as the Mer people , swam the oceans and seas with the horde , teaching them all that is good and should be preserved , Baby Drago would hang on to their toes or bite their tails as they swooshed under caverns and giant kelp .
Drago knew about MAN , and how he as a dragon is a ” Brother ” to man…He was told not all men are worthy to be brothers , but
there are those who hold the same heart , and power as he does …..SOooo , each day as they glided in and out of the sea , Drago always kept an eye, looking for a man or woman …” I’ll give this a test”, he said , in his heart …. one day saw a man , on a ship , and playfully , he gulped in water and sprayed the poor man . Drago popped his head out of the waves…to see what happened !
Of course , drenched as he was the man stood up and reached over the rail ,and saw a dragon , face to face ! The dragons face was so close that he could feel the cool hiss as it blew his hair and more foamy spray covered his face . What a sight so behold, so funny actually .. “He must be a brother” , Drago thought .. He is not afraid of me .. Hmmmmm, I will try another day again .
In the Book , certain people are innate with magical strength and knowledge ….And Drago , was looking for his equal ..as it was written , ages ago.
The Mer people always advised them .to be wary of false persons and that in the world there is good as well as evil , so is it , in their world .
As the sands write the story , a great war was brewing amongst the old Dragons . They are getting restless and impatient from not fighting , it has been 1000 years in our calendar , and only a few months in their time… They have grown fat and lazy and idleness made them bored …and the blood in their veins are calling them to battle once again .
Dom , could not prevent it, for even he felt the urge to fight ..to plunder and conquer …They are The Mighty Dragons after all . Sadly a great assembly was called , The skies , fell to darkness , as the winged dragons blocked the sun in their magnitude…. The air was blacked with soot , and hail stones falling from the sky. Bursts of fire and blue ice cold be seen in the sky. And they came flying from far away…From the four corners of the earth they flew, high in the sky , over mountains , forests and beneath the seas , to finally converge and seal their faith . The battle is to the death .
All of Faerie Land was in battle gear . They too , are affected by this battle . Their civilization also might disappear .
The land prepared for the coming battle.. The Queens from every kingdom waved their flag of battle , and elves , gnomes and all magical creatures took refuge or gathered together to fight and fortify themselves against the doom that loomed. All spell binders , looked in their calderas and shuddered at what they saw . The moon had it’s eyes closed , as thundering flaps resounded , tress of old bent and cowered , the mountains blew fiery smoke . When these Magnificent Dragons of every shape , size and colors passed by .
They are everywhere said the Fairy Queens , ” We must stop them ! Or all Fairy Land will be forever lost . ” But who will be brave enough to speak to them ?, cried all.. Fand , one of the fairy Queens stood up and waved her wand , and called upon a Huge Black Eagle , one of the only few left, and………Whispered incantations , in a language that sent shivers down everyone’s spine, no one could move …but could hear in their minds. She had ordered
Fly , fly high , over mountains and forests and seas , and search for the Dragon and Man who will reunite the worlds together again .One of pure heart , who is destined to save the fairy land and the dragons from oblivion . A great hush covered the land as the Black Eagle spread his wings and flew higher and higher till he vanished in the dark sky .” Continue , will all battle stance ,!” she shouted , “We must be prepared , if the black Eagle fails ! ” and all followed.
Drago , dressed in his battle armor stood on a rock looking at the sky , as the Black Eagle encircled above . He could hear what the eagle was saying !
” What ? ” he said , “Me …? But I’m only a baby dragon , How can I do such a magical deed ? ” he answered . ” You were taught in the new ways , have faith and all will be accomplished .” said the Black Eagle …” Come , follow me , we have no time to waste, the older dragons are nearing the center of fairy lands domain.
I must now find the Man….Swooooh ! and they were flying with the four winds…Drago was proud to help save the world . At least , he was given a chance .
Dom , the older dragon , heard all this and flew quickly to the magic forest , where a man lived….He must seek him out . This man is a brother , of the dragons and only he can accomplish this task….as it was written in the Book of Dragons , he remembered … Deep, deep in the magical forest , Dom , searched , calling out , ” Brother , brother , we need your help ! “The time is now , to unite !” Dom cried out . Relentlessly he pushed deeper and deeper ,until he saw a fire, and there sat the MAN …smiling at him , as he approached . Strange and magical things happened those days , a mortal cannot truly understand , as Dom began to explain to the man ,. …a half fairy by birth . Strong gushes of wind , blew and as it stopped, stood Drago and the Black Eagle , ….”Tonight , we will be testing all the powers that be” , Dom said . As curious as he is , Drago moved closer to the man , ” It is you again ! ” he exclaimed , and fell down on his behind , smiling . “We are brothers and must stop this war , or no one will be left alive !” Drago said…..The man smiled and asked the baby dragon to hold out his paws , so that he could touch them , and then a magical thing happened . The four winds engulfed them both and the earth shook , and the wisdom trees bowed …….Before them stood .. The biggest MAN-DRAGON of all as foretold in the Book….He roared so loud that the earth cracked open and all stood still in the kingdoms. Suddenly all the battle fairies blazing in flames appeared …by the thousands..” We are ready to escort you , DRAGON LORD.! ” they shouted in a thousand echoing voices .
That day , all the waring old dragons , bowed and knelt before the Dragon Lord ….and peace once more spread throughout the world .They vowed harmony
and love , as they dispersed to the four corners of the earth… ” If we all die , who will be left to tell our story ? asked the Dragon Lord , ” No one would left to be witness that we as man and dragons are brothers and can live in peace .” With this words ringing in their ears the old dragons swaggered and bowed to obey the new way .
