From GraniceBackground Stories
Love I have always felt it and known it for my whole life. Humans say dragons are just mindless beasts that go around and kill for thrill. Well my life shows just how wrong you humans truly are.
My name is Granice Shersickle and I am a light blue, water dragoness. On four legs my height is four feet, two inches. Human women don't like to tell about their age and neither do we dragoness's.
I was hatched deep in the heart of an isolated mountain range that you humans have yet to discover. Just don't think I didn't see the world as a hatchling; my mother, Brasila, thought that traveling and watching the humans from afar would help me better come to terms of the dangers out in the world, past the mountains we called home.
Father he thought differently. My father was a highly respected dragon-clan chief, and everything had to be dragon not human. Now that I think about it, after mom and I would come home after a travel, he would be waitin

Smoke filled my nostrils as I took a deep breath and looked around at the halfway burnt down town. My sword swung idly from my side as I strolled into the inn; inside soot covered villagers were yelling about a dragon destroying their town and what they should do about it. The town's elder rubbed his wrinkled forehead and finally stood saying
"Please good people please silence," and everyone did; so he continued "It is obvious that we have two options one beg the queen to forfeit some knights to our cause or two we pack and leave."
Again chaos broke loose as the villagers heard what they thought was their only options. I pushed my way to the head of the crowd and jumped up onto the stage that the elder was sitting upon.
"OR YOU HAVE OPTION THREE," I yelled and everyone stopped to look at me. I felt pride rush through me as I stood tall in my dragon skin boots, gauntlets, tunic, and shield.
The elder looked at me and finally signaled for silence "Who are you m
Deja VuDéjà vu
Rain fell from the heaven's down to earth like a bat out of hell; my boots splashed heavily against the mud of the forest. The moon was hidden behind the clouds; I could hear the eerie howls of my chasers closely behind this was truly a life or death situation. Although my chance's of making it out of the forest, and back to town before I was mauled by a wolf, was very slim I was lost.
There was no way out of this forest unless you took the correct trail I was not on that trail. Cursing myself for not taking the correct safety precautions and actually FOLLOWING the trail, would've saved me from this nightmare. *AWOOOOO* there now I could say it was all over a white wolf jumped out of the bushes in front of me.
No mercy shone in its eyes as it slowly stalked towards me my heart rate quickened as sweat poured down my face. I wanted to beg the wolf to spare me, but what good would that do it couldn't understand me so why should I waste
A Dragon Impulse Part FiveA Dragon Impulse Part 5
There was no moon to light my way as I crept around the bunkhouse. I had to be very careful not to make any noise for if the guards roaming the yard caught me who knew what would happen. Slowly but surely, I made it to the corner of the building.
I quickly stuck my head out to find two draconic guards walking and talking together. "God get out of my way you lizards," I spat under my breath. The guards were coming my way and I had nowhere to hide unless; "Oh I am such and idiot" I told myself. Backing up from the wall I prepared to charge the wall.
With all of my agility I ran up the wall to the roof like I had done all my life. "I knew that freerunning would save me one day." Said I. The guards walked by not noticing me on the roof. Now I would freerun across the buildings to the main complex; hopefully Josh, Tom, and Amy would do their part.
As I jumped across the rooftops as I thought about what I was going to do tonight. My first night a

The unforgiving sun scorched the sandy desert below; any creatures that could live in this environment had found some form of protection. It was noon the hottest part of the day a time when you really were not supposed to be wandering the desert without water. Poor James had no other option though as sluggishly moved through the bare wasteland wandering in a blind direction that he hoped would bring civilization. James knew that the chances of civilization being in the direction of which he was traveling were very small; so small in fact that James had wrote his last words in his front pocket in case anyone found him out here.
"Why I just didn't stay home eludes me Minnesota would be nice and cool right about this time of year." James said aloud to himself; loose sand slowed him down even further as he traveled to what would more than likely be his immanent death. "I wonder if they shall serve tea this afternoon?" James pondered; the heat and dehydration were finally a
I was never a happy person in life but it got worse as time went on. Everyday it seemed like everyone was getting it better than me and all I could do was stand by watching. Work was a drag everyday I had to work the late shifts and early morning shifts trust me not a good combination. My boss was always a jerk greeting me everyday "Why the hell are you so late I am knocking an hour off your paycheck for today." The truth was I was never late I was early in fact.
Many people told me I should take a break and let all of my emotions come out instead of taking it everyday for "bad" things could happen. I didn't care though why should I worry what could happen oh I could have a stroke, at the time I didn't care. Life was miserable yet no one seemed in as bad of shape as I was, but I am here to tell you what happened to me.
The day started as it usually did for me; my shrill alarm went off at five-thirty A.M. awaking me from what little sleep I could get. "Stupid fre
