We asked our readers to write a short piece of creative writing related to dragons. Here is one of the entries. It has not been edited.
There was nothing but darkness. I heard a sound behind me and turned, and came face to face with the darkness. It was just perfectly dark, perfectly quiet, except for the sound behind me.
For a few seconds, it was silence again... until, I heard the sound again. I started to shiver with fear. As I listened more carefully, I realized that it was a snore... I stopped for a few moments and began to laugh very very hard. Wait, I'm not mental! Well, the snore sounded like my dad's late-night snore, you know, the thunder every night, from dad's room.
I started to act usual and breathe normal. Not until... the snore suddenly stopped and I was levitating! I was too afraid to move, even a finger.
Then, I heard a roar when I suddenly saw a big red flame. For a moment, I thought I was dead, I opened my eyes, with my jaws widely opened. The 'Dragons are only from fairy tales' was totally wrong. Wait, was it another silly dream? I punched my face really hard. Ouch!
It wasn't a monstrous one, but a celestial one. It was the most prettiest creature I've ever seen. Not just the colours of it, but its sparkly eyes.
Now, the levitation was explained, and the sound, of course
All of a sudden, lights were all on. 'What on earth are you doing in the living room at this time!?' I was so innocent, I asked myself too, what on earth am I doing here, holding my brothers you dragon? I was too frustrated to think about it. I quickly fell asleep on the floor.
The darkness, the sound, the snore, the levitation, the big red flames are still unexplained, but I can still remember every single details that happened that night.
Just like my life, so many things are left unknown. Explanations are not that important, but imaginations and creativities are really is.
