The Rise of The Dragon Queen: Chapter 17

The torch’s firelight illuminated the room as I remained on the floor, fading in and out of consciousness. Even in my sleep, I couldn’t stop thinking about the key. I imagined holding it, running my fingers across the metal cylinder that made its neck, and unlocking the door that kept me from my freedom. WhenContinue reading “The Rise of The Dragon Queen: Chapter 17”

The Rise of The Dragon Queen- Chapter 16

The world around us grew cold and dark as Puff flew through the night sky. We were gliding over a large, sprawling forest when Vixia finally started to regain consciousness. She shifted a little and looked up at me, the back of her head resting against my chest. She shivered in the cold and IContinue reading “The Rise of The Dragon Queen- Chapter 16”

The Rise of The Dragon Queen- Chapter 15

Over the next few months, it became apparent to Vixia and me that we actually could stay in Tidalsong City. We began by taking on quests around town and eventually we became somewhat known by most of the people there. The kinder ones would give us food along with our payments for the quests andContinue reading “The Rise of The Dragon Queen- Chapter 15”

The Rise of The Dragon Queen – Chapter 14

Late that night, the traffic in the area died down and Vixia and I slowly crept out of the crate that we were hiding in. Now it was so quiet around us that you could hear the chirping of crickets and what I suspected was the croaking of frogs, basking in the puddles from theContinue reading “The Rise of The Dragon Queen – Chapter 14”

The Rise of The Dragon Queen – Chapter 13

“All right, that should be all of the supplies you need,” Nesryn determined, putting her hands on his hips as some other guild members helped us load a few crates into a wagon. “It shouldn’t take you too long to get there. The caverns are only a few hours past the forest that you guysContinue reading “The Rise of The Dragon Queen – Chapter 13”

The Rise of The Dragon Queen: Chapter 12

The weekend quickly came to an end and Vixia, Puff, and I returned to the guildhall in the morning. It was just as we had left it, except the window had finally been repaired from when Vixia broke it. “Did they wait until we left to fix that?” Vixia asked, pointing to it as weContinue reading “The Rise of The Dragon Queen: Chapter 12”

The Rise of The Dragon Queen- Chapter 11

When Vixia went and talked to Nesryn, she requested that we take a weekend to go home and decompress since we had been at the guildhall without a break for about a month. Nesryn begrudgingly agreed and I was incredibly thankful to leave the guild for a bit. That became increasingly clear to me asContinue reading “The Rise of The Dragon Queen- Chapter 11”

The Rise of The Dragon Queen- Chapter 10

We headed out again after we left the restaurant and headed for the forest outside of the city. We followed a winding dirt path into the woods and quickly found ourselves deep inside of it. We wandered around for a while, searching for the dragon, but found nothing. Vixia and I were walking along behindContinue reading “The Rise of The Dragon Queen- Chapter 10”

The Rise of The Dragon Queen- Chapter 9

The next morning, we headed out to the yard in front of the guildhall as soon as we finished breakfast. We were told that we were going pretty far and that it would probably take us a few days to complete the quest, so Darius had packed some tents and other supplies. He was carryingContinue reading “The Rise of The Dragon Queen- Chapter 9”

The Rise of The Dragon Queen- Chapter 8

The weekend passed and Vixia, Darius, and I listened closely for our names as we ate our breakfasts on the following Monday. Nesryn was standing in front of the bar, like usual, giving everyone their quests for the day. But, by the time she finished the list, she still hadn’t called our names. Don’t tellContinue reading “The Rise of The Dragon Queen- Chapter 8”
