Wind whistling in my ears, I did a little twirl in the air. Fred kept trying to make me lose my balance with mighty flaps of those huge wings, but it only worked once. Stupid dragon. "You know," I said loudly, trying to make myself heard over the roaring wind, "My wings are awful tired, lets have another break!" He nodded his head, and started shooting down. I did too, folding my wings as i shot towards the ground. We landed, and brought out our food. There was not very much left. I bit my lip. Four carrots, three apples five cheese sticks, one chicken leg, and one small piece of grilled steak. Great. Most certainly not enough for what, four, five days? I had lost track of the time already. I sadly ate a cheese stick and a carrot, then, not at all content, reluctantly stuffed the rest of our food into the bag. Fred ate some random stag he found laying around, after he roasted its horns off. Vulture, I muttered. "Well thanks," he replied."I am so touched." He lit the bonfire, a content expression on his dragon face. He curled up by the fire, catching his tail on fire occasionally. He seemed to like it. "Hey, I said. "You know, your brother is probably somewhere similar to here, doing the same thing as you. He is taking Jemima to the purple kingdom. She couldn't get there any other way.We will be seeing him soon, you know." Fred smiled. "I like that thought, he said." Then, his tail still ablaze, he fell asleep.
As did I.
I sat up abruptly, whacking my head on something scaly.
"Ouch!" Fred whisper grumbled.
"What is it?" I asked. "Because if your going to all the trouble to wake me up at six in the morning, it better be worth it."
"We are being attacked!"
"I'm going back to bed."
I slowly pushed myself up, blinking my eyes in the moonlight. A torchlight and whispering came from behind the bushes. I edged out of the way, pulling my sword out of my backpack. I gathered everything up, and closed my eyes. I can do this, I can do this. I opened my mouth, nothing. I breathed hard, harder hardest, I just couldn't do it! I didn't want to leave without fighting back, but I couldn't breathe fire. Being half dragon and all, I could breathe fire, but only when I was angry. I couldn't get myself angry, I had tried, it hadn't worked. Then, the bushes broke apart, and three people jumped out. A chill ran down my spine. Black rose kingdom warriors! I sliced my sword across the air and they laughed. I stabbed and they sidestepped. Angry, I flapped my wings, blowing them back into the bushes. Then, I flew off. Fred, who had sat there the whole time, laughed and sailed off into the rising sun, trying to beat me to the clouds.
Me and Greedle had been flying for about an hour. I had dozed off a few times but with the twists, turns, and sudden jerks it was impossible to stay asleep for more than five minutes at a time. I patted Greedle's back signaling him to fly lower.
"I need a break" I yelled, trying to hear myself over the rising wind.
"Alright, I'm in the mood for some snacks aren’t you?" asked Greedle.
"Definitely...but I didn't bring enough food for the both of us." I said
"That's okay, I brought my own" Greedle jerked his head at a big bag hanging from his tail.
"Very good" I said, wondering how I had missed that giant thing hanging from my dragon's tail. After a few minutes we landed in a soft patch of wild daisies. I grabbed my bag and slid off Greedle's back. As soon as I touched the ground my feet began to shake, my throat seamed to swell up and I couldn't talk, I couldn't even breathe.
I saw black, then blue, and then white then everything went silent...
I saw black, then blue, and then white then everything went silent...
I woke up, apparently a couple hours later. I rubbed my eyes, where was I? I stood up, and turned around in a circle. I saw a man with a dagger, my dagger, standing by the entrance. I stared at him, my eyes narrowed. I had to get out of here somehow. I walked over to the guy in black,
"Hey! Who are you and WHY do you have my sword?!?" I yelled.
"Humph, can't speak" he said
"I hate to break it to you, but you just spoke," I said.
"Over here! Come over here" said a black haired girl, standing in the shadows. I walked towards her. She was in front of me and there was a ninja with a sword behind me. I approached slowly but when I was just inches away I made a break for it by running to the side! I grabbed my spare sword and knapsack off the ground; I ran to Greedle and cut the ropes that bound him to the ground with my sword. I hopped on his back and we flew straight up in the air.
"Thank you" I said to Greedle. "Sorry you didn't get to eat your snack"
"Aw, its okay girl, I wasn't all that hungry" he said. I lay down, and I fell asleep.
A few minutes later I woke up, I could smell the fresh air and I wasn't motion sick like I was the last few times I had woken up. I looked up, I saw the big green canopy of trees towering above me, I saw the birds flying through out the sky, and I saw the deep blue and bright pink sunrise. I sat up with a jerk, I looked in front of me, I looked behind me and then I looked beside me. I sighed, my bag was still there.
I opened my bag, in it lay: a pen, a few scraps of faded yellowed paper, my locket (I always take it off to sleep) and my note with the whistle wrapped inside it.
“Greedle?” I said, drowsily
“Where are you?”
I reached in my bag and opened my locket. I smiled. I waited about three hours and Greedle still hadn’t come back. I knew I would have to walk if I wanted to get to the purple rose kingdom in a few days. I picked up my bag, slid my locket over my head and looked around. There was green everywhere, I decided I must be in the green rose kingdom (They like to keep things fresh)… I was two kingdoms away from the purple kingdom and if I didn’t start walking and maybe get a ride I would never get there in time and I would never tell Persis my secret, my very, seriously, important secret.
“Persis, here I come” I said, as I looked at her picture in my locket. I smiled.

The rose dragons.As you know each kingdom has a rose, but I bet you didn't know they also have a dragon! Here is a few pics! :
The White Dragon:
|The white dragons are like their rose known for their beauty.Many dragons envy the White dragon because of it's kindness and power. The White dragon is the most well known of all the dragons and is the dragon all the other dragons look up to. White dragons also sometimes have orange beards.|
The Yellow Dragon:
|The Yellow dragon is not as powerful as the white dragon but it defiantly knows how to take charge when other dragons or people for that matter need him. they are very beautiful and are gorgeous at sunset (as you can see in the picture)|
|The pink dragon is extremely rare and it was very hard to find a picture. They are so rare they almost don't exist (except in cartoons) their so beautiful one look in their eyes and you instantly fall in love with then. Their are only three pink dragons in the world, two of them owned bye millionaires who live in the pink rose kingdom and one that was captured by the black rose kingdom one hundred years ago.|
|The blue dragon is known for its friendship with white dragons (like Greedle and Fred) They are very brave dragons and they find very unique ways of doing things, once a blue dragon flew half way across the world to find a lighthouse then brought it back to the blue rose queen's garden so they could have light shining on them during the night.|
The Green Dragon:
|Green dragons are known for being mysterious and strange but also for being very mean at times. Green dragons don't get along with humans that good and if they don't like you well....nobody ever lives to tell. The green dragon used to be friends with all dragons until the black dragons won them over....but that's another story|
|Purple dragons are known for their rarity, strength, beauty, its perfectness, strictness, and bravery. They act as though their royalty but the other dragons don't mind. Although the Purple dragons are strict they are still loving, caring, and forgiving|
The red dragon, or fire dragon, is not actually as mean as most people make it sound. Their actually lovely creatures who adore people, other dragons, and all living things. Actually most red dragons are married. Just like the red rose kingdoms motto, Love. Marriage. Love. that is exactly what red dragons do in life.
|The black dragon (from the black rose kingdom) is the scariest cruelest and meanest dragon of all. They are vicious, mean and all out scary. With their red glowing eyes and spiky tails they prowl through the night searching for stray animals, humans, and dragons. (not that I don't like them, just trying to say THEIR MEAN!!)|
