Yes she knew he was not real, of course he was made out of pewter, and the blue gemstones were not the best… or so she was told… then why did she feel that he watched her every move. She wanted ChenMay to be there, but ChenMay was not with her, ChenMay was in another part of the grounds.
She hadn’t seen him at first, and now she didn’t know what had made her look down. As soon as the sunlight had gleamed on his eyes, she had known to stop. She searched her mind to try to recall what ChenMay had told her about the dragon. The dragon was part of the Wizardology classes that ChenMay gave each fall to new Apprentices.
She looked closer, and saw the defined scales all over his body, he was majestic.
“Oh there you are” ChenMay’s voice drifted towards them, as she approached where they were standing. “You’ve met ” she smiled as she bent to pick up the dragon.
Leonie would say later, that one minute the dragon was on the ground, and the next he was gone. ChenMay bent down, and when she stood, the dragon was gone. ” I saw him” she would exclaim, “he really was there, his scales shone in the sunlight. ”
ChenMay would only say, “dragon’s play, dragon’s fly away” then chuckle and turn away.
oh dear, oh dear,
what a silly tale
a dragon who can be seen
can this be true
what need I do
to have the dragon
appear to me
are girls being girls,
or is there a story
to be told..
