                                                It's a Dragon's World

                                                Pt. 13 The Fifth Dragon

From inside my cell, I could hear Ben's screams. Those weren't normal screams from what I could tell.

I could also hear the voices of two other people. I assumed it was his parents.

"Behind us is Titus, as well as some baby dragons." They explained.

I could hear footsteps: It was Sarah! I tried to run towards her but chocked a little. I remembered I was still chained by my neck to the wall. I struggled a little as I clawed at the air. I look at Sarah while I struggled. She looked shocked at what she was seeing.

"Why...why would you do this?" I heard her ask.

"Why should we tell a little girl why we do what we do?" Ben's mom asked. I couldn't believe that this was how Ben's parents really were like. They were so nice to me when I was younger. Was that all just a lie?

I heard two more footsteps: It was Ben and Lucas this time! I never thought I'd be so happy to see them.

"Ben! Lucas! Sarah!" I exclaimed.

Ben grabbed hold of the door handle and pulled on it. It didn't budge.

"Dammit! OPEN!" He shouted.

"That's no good, Ben." His mom said. "To open the cell, you need one of the keys."

"Well then, will you give the key to us, or do I have to force you to?" Ben said.

Ben's dad jumped at him and pinned him to the ground. He seized hold of Ben's neck.


I could hear Ben struggling to breathe. I clawed at the air some more. I didn't want to see Ben get hurt.

Just then, I heard a roar outside. Ben's dad let Ben's neck go and got up to see what it was. I heard the wall start to break. The impact from the destruction sent me flying halfway across the room. It was Angela! She landed in the opening she made. I got up and ran over to her. The chain that held me to the wall was still fastened aroung my neck but at least now I was free. I ran up to Angela. She lowered her head and I nuzzled up against her.

"This is bad!" Ben's mom said.

"We gotta let the leader know." Ben's dad finished.

Ben's parents ran towards the entrance. Angela walked over to the cell door and knocked it back with her tail. I dashed out and reunited with my friends. I was overjoyed to see them again.

"Are you alright, Titus?" Lucas asked.

"Yeah. I'll be fine. What about Ben?"

"I'll be okay. I'm just glad you're fine." Ben said.

"Okay, now let's get out of here!" Sarah exclaimed.

"Not yet." I said. "I can't leave these little dragons in this place. Angela, we'll go on ahead. Could you free these little guys?" I asked.

"Yeah. If we're going to save you, we should save the others imprisoned here." Angela replied.

"Thanks." I said.

As we made our way for the front door, we heard someone call out to us. At the upper section of the entrance was Ben's parents and a mysterious man. They had Jessie, Kyle, and Jackie as their hostages!

"Ben!" Jessie yelled out.

"Help us, daddy!" The kids screamed.

"Let them GO!" Ben shouted at the mysterious man.

The man got on one of the railings at the top and jumped off it. I was amazed when he landed. He didn't appear to be hurt. And especially after jumping off what must have been a two story drop.

"So you're the dragon, Doulstraz. The baby dragon who thirteen years ago, managed to, with the help of his parents, escape to this world." He said, with a wicked smile.

"Who are you?!" I asked.

When I looked into his eyes, it felt like I was looking into an eternal blackness. Yet, it felt like what I saw was not the real thing. Almost like there was more to him.

This man had the most penetrating eyes. They probably could make a grown man quake in his boots. He had redish brown hair that was slit back and he had two sets of nose piercings.

"I guess I should introduce myself." He said. " Saulstrance. I am the one who is in charge of this organization. I am the one who organized that the baby dragons of the Dragon Realm be kidnapped and that their parents be killed." The man, now known as Saulstrance explained.

"But why would you do something so horrible?" I asked.

Saulstrance looked at me with a cold look. Then walked over to me. He grabbed me by my horns and held me above his head.

"Horrible is what you and your friends have done, little dragon. Barging into my organization, attacking my guards, destroying parts of my organization. I should punish you right NOW!" He shouted.

"Let Titus GO!" Sarah exclaimed.

Saulstrance looked obver at her. "Don't you EVER command me again, you filthy human!"

Saulstrance threw me at a wall. I landed with a thud.

"Titus!" My friends exclaimed, rushing over to me.

"Doulstraz, do you know that a dragon's blood can do more than just extend the lifespan of the average human?" Saulstrance asked.

With the snap of his fingers, some of Saulstrance's henchmen brought in a captured Angela. They had her tied to the ground. One of the other henchmen brought what appeared to be a sword to Saulstrance.

"Let me show you what I mean!" Saulstrance shouted.

He ran for Angela with his sword in his hands. He lodged his sword into Angela's heart.

As I bear witness to what just happened, I was at a loss for words. Angela coughed up some blood and her head lowered to the ground. As her blood spilled onto the ground, Saulstrance put his hands next the open wound and let the blood flow out into his cupped hands. He brought his hands to his face and drank the blood.

"When a dragon loses blood from its heart, that blood can even so much as break curses." Saulstrance explained.

Tears flowed down my face. Sarah's hands covered her mouth in shock. Lucas and Ben also seemed to be close to tears.

I walked towards Angela.

"Ti....tus." Angela said, she really sounded like she was going to die.

"Please Angela, don't talk." I pleaded.

"Ti...tus. I' glad...that your....parents....let me...look after you."

I gasped as my tears traveled down my face.

"Do you...want to know...the secret...of your...tail?" She asked.

"My tail?" I asked back.

" were...just your...transformation...your tail...had a mind of...its you...know why?" Angela asked.

I nodded. I didn't.

"It...was...because" She explained.

"But how?" I asked quietly.

Angela gave a fiant chuckle. "'ve long as...I tend to...learn...things like that."

I shut my eyes and cried. "Angela."

"Doulstraz. No...Titus, please...become...a good dragon. Don't...turn Saulstrance." And with that, Angela shut her eyes.

"Angela, wake up!" I pleaded. "ANGELA!"

I nudged at her. Nothing. Everyone else cried and tried to hold back their tears.

"Titus..." Ben said, sadly. "She...she's dead."

"No." I thought to myself.

"NNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!" I screamed in pain and sadness.

Just then I heard screams from Saulstrance. We turned our attention to him and noticed that he was transforming. He was turning into a dragon! But how? I wondered. I remembered that he said something about the blood of a dragon's heart being able to cure curses. But did that mean...that he was a dragon himself?

We watched as his transformation came to an end. He let out a mighty roar and looked himself over.

"I'm finally myself again." He said, licking his muzzle. "I guess I should thank that dragon though. Allowing me to kill her so that her heart's blood would be the catalyst to restoring me back to my true self. How foolish." He said arrogantly.

I growled in anger and sadness. I had heard enough of this jerk. I'd never forgive him for killing Angela, but to even insult her in DEATH made me furious.

I walked towards him and stopped after five steps.

"What? You want to challenge me or something, little dragon?" Saulstrance asked.

"No." I said, quietly. "I want to kill you!" I glared at him with a stern, serious look. I was NOT going to let him get away with killing one of my closest friends.

I rushed for Saulstrance.

Sorry for the delay but here's Pt. 13.

The mysterious Saulstrance is revealed. But what he truly is might be another big twist. But that's not nearly as big considering who dies in this chapter.

As always, I hope you enjoy. And sad to say, the series is almost at a close.

Animeboye, you did something that only a few writers had managed to do. You managed to make the villain someone that I really, really hate want to kill with my bare hands instead of some macho hothead. Hats off to you, you have real talents.
Guytales Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
You know what? I want to kill him. I want to rip his heart out through his throat and show him how cold and black it is before he dies. Then, I want to cut off his arm, use it to slaughter every human working for him, collect their blood in a vat, and bathe in it while singing "Highway to Hell."

... ... ...

Sorry, my brain does that sometimes. Maybe I need to be medicated...

Also, thinking of creative methods provides some form of entertainment even if it's for a few minutes

I know... I always get like that when I see someone doing something unimaginably terrible, be it in fiction or real life. I wouldn't actually act on it... Jail doesn't sound like a nice place...

saphire-dragon Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2007
yay that would be awsome. sorry, I think of something new to write everytime i finish writing the first comment. XD
Animeboye Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2007  Student
Heh. Don't worry about it. The more comments the better.^^
saphire-dragon Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2007
You better keep this story going till after Doulstraz beats saulstrance. then you can keep writing after that part and even get to a part when doulstraz is older with a new adventure.
Animeboye Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2007  Student
I might. I haven't thought of that. I might do one like that. Except it would probably take place sometime in the future(Like when Doulstraz is an adult(in human years)).

I despereatly want to finish this story but I've had a case of writer's block and when I do come up with ideas, I have school the next day. GAAAH!

Well I'll try to get the next chapter up this weekend. I just hope I'll be able to.
saphire-dragon Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2007
wow that really really sucked. I hope somehow Doulstraz turns really strong and somehow bites off Saulstrances head and kills him. go Doulstraz.
Animeboye Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2007  Student
Heh. I'm kinda stuck on how to end it. I plan on a big fight between the dragons(Doulstraz and his parents against Saulstrance) but I haven't been able to write the next part with school going on and everything.

Looks like I've suceeded in maming a character everyone hates. AWESOME! Usually for my manga(s), I give the antaganists a reason for what they do and Saulstrance, techincally has a reason but his is much guyish than most of my manga villians(they usually had something bad happen to them that made them that way).

Sad at the end, but very touching story. I like your style of writing. What else I can say? I wish I could write stories like that. Still there are few things I don't get, when humans go to Dragon World, why dragon's aren't mad or scared of them? It's a very good work, keep it up.

Why I'm here, reading this story? because vision of visiting dragonland by falling from sky as blue dragon...
So I went to search something about dragonland. I'm surprised by what I found. A great story. Very great story.

Thanks. That makes me happy to hear that you like the way I write. If you ever want to show me some story idea you had, I could tell you what I think of them.

I figure that the dragons might know when a human is bad or good. However they can't tell when a human enters the Dragon Realm unless the human makes his or herself known to them.

Thanks again. And don't worry about your english. I'm not one of those snotty jerks who critisizes others for their english.

Thanks. Glad you like my writing. I have to admit I was actually pretty sad myself when I was writing that part. I actualy felt like crying a little.
artiantil Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2007
