Hopelessly she fought against the egg monster. It was no use. She had nothing that could stand against the eggshell. She tried one spell after another, but none of them helped. The monster threw hit after hit at her, and the only thing she could do was dodge them. She had wounds and bruises everywhere from all the battles she had fought, but they had always healed up immediately. These wounds didn`t.
Then she remembered her failsafe exit: her Flower crown. She took it off and threw it on the monster. It vanished, forever gone. She sighed with relief, closing her eyes and just feeling the power of the Earth. She was happy, but she also had a sting of sadness inside of her. She felt like someone had ripped off half of her. But she was happy. Oh, so happy, as she saw that were the egg used to be there was a little baby dragon. She picked it up and said hello, and got a croaky screech back in return. She laughed at the dragons cuteness.
Then she heard birds flying closer and closer to her. Turning around, she saw that the birds were carrying her flower crown. She reached out to the birds and took her flower crown. Puttingk it on her head and instantly felt whole again. "Do you want to come with me on my journey?" she asked the dragon. The dragon responded with a happy croak, and off they walked together. Instantly she felt that something was wrong. She stopped and looked down at the Earth. "Yup, something is definitely wrong." she thought.
And that's when she heard it.
It shook in the ground right under her, as she heard someone walk behind her with heavy steps. She did not dare to look; she just ran. Ran and ran and ran, till she could not hear the rumbling any more. She stopped and turned around.
She turned and began walking home. it was dark: she could not see where she was going anymore, only dark trees that looked exactly the same. The moon was the only light she could see. But the moon didn`t help her, it just made everything scarier. If only she could find a torch.
Then she remembered her little dragon, who was currently sitting at her shoulder. She found a stick and held it in front of the dragon.
"Can you please light up this stick so I can see?" she asked the dragon, and to her surprise, the dragon said "Sure thing Princess!" and lit up the stick. She was shocked.
"What is it? Is another monster nearby? Do you need me to fight?" The dragon said, looking around excitedly.
"You...You can...talk?" she stuttered.
"Yes." answered the dragon simply "I can talk".
She was so busy running, that she hadn`t even considered the possibility that the dragon could talk.
" Then what`s your name?" she asked. The dragon smiled happily and said " I don't know" like it was the best thing in the world."But you can name me if you want" the dragon said, as she realized that it was too dark to continue. She thought about it for a long time before she answered.
" Yeah, I suppose I could." she said.
She started packing out all the things she had in her magical backpack for just this reason, and laid it on the ground. The dragon hopped into her sleeping bag and rested it`s head on her pillow. She did the same, and there they were, looking up at the stars and moon, that had just come out from a cloud. She relaxed. " I`ll think about it for tomorrow." she said, and instantly fell asleep.
