(The night sky shone with millions of twinkling stars. Only a single group of stars shone brighter than the rest. These stars,when connected,took the shape of a mighty dragon. This was the Constellation Draco,the dragon heaven.)
Everyone knows the legend of Bowen and Draco. And have heard the tale of Drake and Geoff. But what if their stories didn't end there?
(The stars in the constellation flickered and an image of a dragon, complete with a crown of horns and powerful wings mounted on it's back, appeared.)
What if Drake wasn't the last of his kind as so many believe? And what if these magnificent creatures were to roam the world once again?

The comet sailed through the night sky in complete view of the castle below. It would have been a magical sight if there wasn't a commotion in the castle grounds.
"Drake use your tail!" Cried a voice.
A moment later a roar of pain and anger echoed throughout the night air.
The red dragon flew towards the open ceiling and dislodged the sword from it's chest."You'll pay for that pheasant!"
The smaller dragon on the ground, known as Drake,took this time to roll onto his back and let loose a stream of ice from his maw. The ice smashed into the larger dragon's stomach,who cringed in pain and looked in horror at the ice as it consumed his lower body.
"Ice? How did you ...aaahhh!" The dragon screamed as he was completely covered in ice. Having lost the use of his wings and mouth he dropped like a boulder from the air. The now frozen dragon shattered like glass upon impact to the ground. The sharp ice shards were sent in every direction,some imbedding themselves in the door.
Drake quickly got to his feet and whirled around looking for his friend that he considered brother. "Geoff,we made it...Geoff." Then he saw the limp of his best friend in an awkward position on the floor.
The Chinese girl,Lian,and a monk young monk named Mansel rushed over to Geoff's body. Lian pulled out the icicle that was stick in his chest. While Mansel inspected him.
"He's gone." He said a moment later pain and sorrow etched in his voice.
Drake approached them. "Step away." He calmly order with a similar pain in his voice. "Mansel,what are the words?
" He reared up and opened the flap of scale that hid his beating heart.
"Half my heart to make you whole," The monk replied while Drake took his claw and made an incision in the delicate membrane under the scale. He reached inside the cut and pulled out half of his heart.
",it's strength to purify your weakness." They concluded as Drake reached over and placed the heart in his friend's chest.
Geoff opened his eyes and groaned. "What happened?...ack,my heart hurts."
Drake grinned. "You mean our heart hurts,but it won't be this way forever."
(The picture of this joyous sight soon faded to black the reopened to different shots of the medieval countryside as the title and subtitles began to show.)

Four years later
The morning sun was high in the sapphire sky,causing a golden glow to fall over the kingdom. There was a slight breeze and the dew on the grass hasn't even thought of evaporating yet. The cattle were lazily chewing grass in their pasture enjoying the peace and quiet of the morning.
Then a movement outside the fences,on the gravel road,caught their eye. Young stable boy ,Geoff , and his friend Drake walked along enjoying the scenery.
Geoff was about twenty now but still had his short, curly, blond hair. He was the average height and weight of someone his age. His brown eyes portrayed the same mischief as they did four years ago when Drake saved him by sharing half of his heart with him.
Geoff was also starting to get stubbles on his lip and chin indicating that he's staring to grow a goatee. He wore a bright red tunic that looked like it was too big for him.
Drake was a very special creature. He was a dragon. The last of his kind. Luckily, he had Geoff there to keep him from being lonely...most of the time. Drake was about twice the size that he was four years ago when he killed the evil dragon known as Griffin.
He was actually the same size as Griffin. Drake's main colour was tan/gold with a black head,throat, chest,wing,structure, and shoulders. His body was more mature and muscular. Drake's voice had also gotten lower with age.
All was silent until a sudden growling noise broke the peace of the morning.
"Excuse me, " Drake said,pausing in mid stride."I think it's time for diner."
Geoff chuckled,"I'll see you at home,Drake."
"See you later."Drake replied, chuckling himself.
Drake spread his wings and took off. Geoff held his arm against his forehead to shield his eyes from the glare of the sun,as he gazed after the decreasing shape of the dragon before turning in the direction of the monastery.
He was nearly outside the village,when he heard someone come up behind him.
"Well if it isn't stable boy," said a voice.
Geoff groaned. He knew that voice. It was sir Roland, a knight of the realm and number one bully towards Geoff. Geoff knew that Roland was just jealous of him because he was friends with a dragon, but Geoff didn't like to get him going.
"Where's your friend?" Roland asked.
" Drake's off getting diner."Geoff replied
"Too bad,"Roland sneered taking out his sword."I was hoping for a challenge."
Roland was about to strike Geoff when...
"Hey!"cried a feminine voice.
They all turned around to see a girl about as old and as tall as them. She was thin,but muscular and lean. Her chestnut hair was slightly curly and was chest length. She had emerald green eyes with a hint of brown in them. Rather than wearing a dress like all the women did,she was wearing a dark brown tunic and something similar to black slacks with light brown boots that some what resembled cowboy boots.
"Leave him alone!"she cried
"What?"Roland snickered. His friends in hysterics .
"I said,Leave him alone!"she yelled.
Geoff was stared at the girl with wide eyes. No one talked to a knight like that,except for the king. Everyone was silent until Roland made the first move.
"This is none of your business, pheasant. Be gone."Roland commanded.
"It is now."she replied,picking up a thick stick that lay on the side of the road.
"I'm warning you."Roland said,walking toward her with his sword drawn and pointed at her.
"Oh please! You couldn't even hit the right side of a barn door!"she challenged.
"Why you little!"Roland cussed,lunging at her.
She saw this and jumped out of the way ,making a counter blow that hit the sword. Roland tried to strike low ,but she jumped and he missed. He then twirled the blade above his head and aimed high,but she ducked and he missed again.
The girl then exploded into a fury of attacks towards his legs, head and midsection all blocked by Roland's sword. The last hit shattered the stick and left the girl unprotected. Roland smiled. This was going to be easy!
But Roland made the only mistake that a knight could: he got over-confident. And this over-confidence made him hesitate.
The girl took this opportunity to punch Roland in the gut. Roland dropped his sword as he doubled over in pain. The girl picked up his sword as she pushed him over onto the ground.
Everyone around them gasped as she placed the tip of the blade on his neck,not enough to hurt him,but enough to get her point across.
"Never start something that you can't finish."she said, handing him the blade. Roland got up,got onto his horse and galloped away ,his friends following closely behind him.
When he knew they were gone Geoff walked up to the girl,who was dusting herself off."Where did you learn how to fight like that?"Geoff asked stunned.
"My grandfather was a knight of the old code."she said,starting to make her way down the road.
"I'm Amber."she added after a while,offering a hand to shake.
" Geoff."He said, shaking her hand
"Nice to meet you Geoff."she replied smiling.
Just then the sound of wing beats filled the air. Geoff turned to see Drake returning from his hunt. He turned back back to face Amber, but she was gone. Strange. He turned around just as Drake landed a little ways down the road., they then turned and headed back to the monastery.
# # # # #
"So you're saying that ,she overcame Roland in a sparing match,introduced herself,and disappeared?"Drake said,perplexed.
They were in the monastery dungeon which was also used as Drake's room. Since he was growing ,his head could touch the ceiling so he would have to duck slightly when he was standing. Drake was resting on his bed of cushions while Geoff was sitting on a chair by the fireplace.
"Yes," Geoff replied,appalled. "It was so weird. I turned my back for one second and she's gone. "
"That is weird,"Drake pondered. He glanced out the grate and saw that the sky was starting to darken.",but it's getting late we should worry about that tomorrow." The dragon started settling down for the night while Geoff headed for his own room.
"Good night."Geoff said leaving the room.
"Good night."Drake replied,shuffling a yawn.

He walked down an unused game trail inside a forest of massive cedar and pine trees. Some of the trunks were thicker than a man's waist. Suddenly, he stumbled upon a clearing surrounded by large willow bushes and ferns. He paused and looked around.
"Where am I?"He thought,aloud
"You're dreaming,Drake."Answered a female voice from the bushes
He whirled around to see who it was that was there. Behind him, emerging from the bushes was a dragon or evidently a dragoness like him,the same height and presumably the same age. While,Drake was a black/gray colour,this dragoness was mainly a rose colour with gold muzzle,throat,stomach and wings. Her eyes were also a mahogany colour. To Drake she was the most beautiful thing he's ever seen.
"Who are you and how do you know my name?"He inquired,stepping forward.
"Oh, so many questions , you will meet me in due time. The important thing is that you wake up."she responded
"What?"Drake said confused
"Wake up,Drake,wake up!"she bellowed
# # # # # # #
Drake's eyes opened in a flash. As his visioned cleared, he saw Geoff standing over him.
"Whoa, that was an odd dream."Drake mumbled rising out of bed.
"What?"Geoff asked puzzled
"Never mind."Drake sighed,shaking his head as he got up and stretched. He looked like a big cat by the way way he was stretching.
"Do you know you talk in your sleep?"Geoff said,changing the subject.
Drake looked away a small blush starting to form on cheeks. Geoff saw this and started to smirk.
"Come on,I want to get to the market before it gets too crowded."Geoff said heading towards the exit.
"This is about that girl isn't it?"Drake teased, raising a eye ridge.
"No, I-I just...don't like crowds"He replied,walking towards the exit..
"Whatever you say."Drake muttered.
As they walked back down the dirt road into town,they were greeted by everyone they pasted. Mostly because of Drake being the last dragon.
As they walked by a butcher shop,Geoff saw the girl he met yesterday, holding a large turkey and giving the clerk a few pieces of gold coins.
"There she is."Geoff pointed.
They were a few yards away so they were out of hearing range. After she paid the butcher,Amber weaved around a crowd of people ,making her way to the end of the village.
"Let's follow her."Geoff said,taking after her.
Drake rolled his eyes,but reluctantly followed.
