The knight galloped upon his steed, rather unknowingly toward what could only be the end of him. You see, the princess was captured by a dragon, and yadda, yadda, yadda, she must be saved by a brave suitor, blah, blah, blah, happily ever after the end. Though, this dragon was not to be defeated easily. No, he could breathe fire, pierce through armor with teeth and play a wicked game of chess. Anyways, even though certain doom lay before him, the knight carried on to the dragon’s cave.
The knight, equipped with shiny armor, a sharp blade and only the best GPS equipment found the dragon’s cave easily. Jumping off of his horse, he shouted into the cave.
“Hello, this is the Good Knight Henry, is anyone there?”
His call echoed throughout the cave, with no response.
“Is there anyone in this cave? Hello?”
Suddenly, a great booming voice came booming out of the cave.
“The dragon is not in his cave right now, please leave a message after the blood curdling scream of the princess.”
“Oh, um yes, hello,” said the knight, stumbling over his words, “Er, if there is no dragon, I suppose that I’ll come back later to save the princess. Um, thank you, good bye.”
As the knight began to turn around he noticed a shadow about him. Next, there was a crunching and a rather ugly sounding scream. The knight turned around to see the dragon, munching upon what used to be the Knight’s gallant steed with the princess in one great clawed hand.
“Oh, well hello there dragon!”
“Hello Knight, how may I be of service to you.”
“Well, you could not eat me horse.”
“Hmmm no, it’s a little late for that one.”
“Yes, I suppose so, well, could you put the princess down?”
“No, no, see I have plans with her.”
“Fair enough,” said the good knight, scratching his head, “well, you could sword through your chest.”
“That would hurt, would it not.”
“Yes, it would, that is the, erm, intention.”
“Oh, I see, you wish me dead.”
“Yes, very much so.”
“Well, that rather hurts my feelings.”
The great dragon tossed what was left of the horse down his maw and swooped down his scaled hand to pick up the knight. What seemed to be the lizard equivalent of a smile came across the beast’s jaw.
“Well, look at that, now I have two morsels for dinner. It has been a good day hasn’t it.” Bellowed the dragon.
The dragon began to reach his giant jaw toward the knight in shining armor, then a booming, but slightly higher voice came from the cave.”
“Harold, don’t eat those people, you’ll spoil your dinner.”
The dragon hung his head.
He dropped the pair of endangered humans and slithered into his cave.
The Knight dusted himself off and helped up the dirtied princess. There was a pause as both figured scanned the area.
The Knight cleared his throat.
“So…… wanna make out.”
