I had heard the tales, who hadn’t? but I needed to see. The twisted road to the house was through an overgrown woods and a bubbling swamp. It seemed the perfect for a horrible castle, especially as the full moon was playing hide and seek with the clouds tonight.
The gates appeared and top was the green stone dragon.
I got out of my car and went forward.
Finding my voice, I asked, ‘Hello?’
‘Who disturbs me?’ the dragon’s booming voice rang out as he shook himself awake.
The tales were true after all!
