The Story of the Dragon. I remember hearing two voices talking about me, one was old and wise and the other was young and confused. They talked about and painted me for a while, then wrapped me up in a roll for a week.
You have much to learn, my apprentice.
But sir, where are his eyes?
Yes, now I am finshed.
Once I was unrolled there was another voice speaking, this one was very old and bitter. I did not like this man, he claimed to be the Magistrate Tiger. He also claimed to be a powerful ruler from a very important imperial family.
We hope you enjoy it sir!
Ah! This is a beautiful piece of art, I shall reward you with lots of gold and fortune.
I was rolled up again, I do not remember how long I was. It could of been an hour, or a day, or a week, it could of evan been a year. That will always be a mystery to me. But when I was unrolled again, I knew i was not in the painters workshop but i was in the Magistrate tigers palace
I could hear the Magistrate Tiger and one of his servants discussing about me.
Defiantly sir, but what about his eyes?
Isn't this dragon glorious servant?
Yes, what about them?
Well, the thing is sir, he has no eyes.
Please calm down sir.
WHAT! HOW DARE THAT ARTIST CHARGE ME FOR AN UNFINSHED PAINTING! I SHALL HAVE HIM AND HIS VILLAGE BURNED TO ASHES!
Unfortionly for the Magistrate Tiger, something did go wrong
Sir, there is no need to throw all that fuss for a small mistake. We can just fix it up here in the palace! what can go wrong!
Very well, I shall spare the painter and fix his mistake
The Magistrait's Most trusty servant was told to fill in my blanks, every time his brush touched me i felt more alive.
I'm trying the best I can sir! Art is a very difficult talent!
Can you hurry up servant!
Eventally I felt so alive that I started to move...
Just a little more time.
Once the servant saw me moving, I began to emerge from the canvas.
th...th...the dra...the dragon...is moving!
Why have you stopped?
And with a flaming burst, I emerged from my painted prison!
Thats impos- AHHHHHHHHHH!
DRAGON! DRAGON! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!
DRAGON! DRAGON! HE IS BURNING MY PALACE! HE IS DANGEROUS!
As I made my daring escape, I rampaged through the palace.
I sprinted to the forest, out of reach from the gaurds
And I stayed there in the forest not to be seen by a human eye for a hundred years
