Maybe not one of my best, but I like it. Yes I love dragons and that I can not help.
The girl looked up toward the night sky wondering about the legend she had heard all her life. She had been told that somewhere out there among the stars there was a special spirit. It was the spirit of the blue dragon. He had lived once on the planet but slowly all his kind had died until he was the only one left.
Humans had been afraid of them. Afraid of their power, so they had hunted them. It wasn’t that humans were bigger and stronger, but they were cunning. Even dragons could be poisoned, and they poisoned them all. Just like humans, dragon had to eat.
Dragons hadn’t hunted humans until they realized what was happening but there were to many human and too few dragons left. The ones that didn’t die from the poison died from hunger, all but one, the blue dragon.
The humans had hunted him for more years than anyone could remember until one day they thought they had him cornered. They hadn’t.
Standing on the edge of a cliff the dragon launched into the air with such strength and speed that they never had a chance. They watched as the dragon flew over them letting out a stream of blue flames before it headed skyward. It flew higher and higher; the sound of its wings grew fainter and fainter the higher it went. While some watched the dragon make its skyward climb while others tried to care for the wounded and dead.
The humans with their faces turned upward watched as the blue dragon flew toward the moon it body growing smaller and smaller as it climbed. Just when it became nothing more than a pin point against the moon there was a flash of brilliant blue light that lit that blocked out that pale blue orb. What looked like bolts of lightning flew out in all directions only served to add to the unnatural blue shine of the night sky.
Some said it burst into flames, others thought it made it all the way to the moon and crashed to its surface and died, but a few, a very few, said that it was still up there. Up there searching for others like him.
The girl knew better. It was still close. She would see it as it made its way among the stars. Each night it seemed to come closer to her than the night before. Tonight, it would get very close, so close that it would reach out and take her and she would let it. You see, there were other dragons still living. They had just learned how to adapt and take a different form. Tonight, the girl would join her brother and together they would search and find others. When they did, humans would have something to scare their children with once more.
