                                                It's a Dragon's World

                                                Pt. 5 Doulstraz

The woman claiming to be Angela walked back into the shop. I followed behind her.

"Okay so you're Angela Dragonwings. So what's this 'gift' you've been talking about in your letters?" I asked.

"You already got the gift." She responded. "It's your transformation."

"That's what's confusing me. I've got a tail but I shrunk to the size of a little kid. So am I becoming  a crocodile or a little boy? Or am I becoming a little boy with a croc tail?" I asked.

"Not at all. You're not becoming a crocodile. You're becoming a dragon."

"What?? Are you nuts? Dragons don't exist. This probably doesn't exist. Maybe I'm still at home, with my mom and dad, and I'm dreaming all this."

"Well if it's a dream, you won't feel pain. So try giving your tail a little tug." She instructed.

I brought my hands to my tail. As she told me to, I yanked on my tail. It was a bit painful. She was right. This IS'NT a dream.

"Okay. So it's not a dream. But how am I supposed to believe that dragons exist? Do you have proof?"

"As a matter of fact, I do. Follow me."

I followed her into the stock room. As I entered, I noticed something different about it. This wasn't a stockroom at all. It was a cave! What was a CAVE doing in a store?

Angela walked into the darkness. She told me to stay where I was. A moment later, I saw something move. It was a DRAGON!

"See, Titus? I'm the proof."

"Y-You're really a dragon..."

"Yes. I come from a realm where dragons live peacefully. A realm of only dragons."

"So, uh, Miss Dragon..." I started to say.

"You can still call me Angela. But that's not my real name."

"Okay, Angela. Are there any other humans who know about this realm?" I asked.

"There IS one. He was turned into a dragon, much like you are now. By a female dragon who was only known as Dragoness. No one knew her real name. Or what happened to the hatchling she brought back with her. They both dissapeared." She explained.

I wondered what could've happened to this other guy. And a dragoness whose real name was never known. Seemed kind of hard to believe.

I tried forgetting about that and focused on my own transformation.

"Alright. Now here's my question." I said.

"Go on.." Alngela said.

"Why have I shrunk? You never answered that part." I asked.

"I already told you. It's because you're becoming a dragon."

"But what does me shrinking have to do with turning me into a dragon?!" I was starting to get furious.

Angela sighed. "I guess I'm not being too direct huh?"

I thought to myself "Yeah. You sure aren't."

"You shrunk because you're gonna be a child dragon." Angela explained.

"But dragons are huge and are twice the size of a house."

"Yes. Those are the adult dragons. As children, dragons are about the size of a fullgrown dog. When your transformation is complete, you'll be the size of a dog. So to say." Angela tried to explain.

"But won't I be able to walk like a human?" I asked.

"Now don't you think it would look weird for a dragon to walk like a human? No. When you become a fully organic dragon, you won't be able to walk like a human. You'll walk quadruped."

I sighed to myself. This all seemed hard to belive. I thought of how hard it would be walking like that.

"But don't worry about it right now. You're a growing dragon. You'll learn over time."  Angela smiled at me.

"That...sounds kinda cool. But how will I be able to see my family and Lucas? I can't approach them as an eight year old with a tail!" I exclaimed.

"When the time comes, you'll be able to see them again. In the mean time, It'd be best if you stayed with me. They won't be able to accept you for the dragon you are. Not just yet at least."

"Well can you at least send them a message for me?" I asked.

"Sure. What should I write?" Angela asked.

"Tell them that I'm staying with a friend of my parents and that I don't want them to worry about me."

"Okay. I'll have this sent soon."

"Thanks, Angela." I said.

"Now, there IS one more part to your transformation."

"Which is?" I asked.

"You need a new name."

"WHY?! I like my name! Why would it need to be changed??" I asked in a panic.

"Your name is a human's name. It would sound weird for a dragon to have a human's name."

"Yeah. But I'm not a dragon yet." I tried to tell her.

"We don't know how long the transformation will take either. You could become a young dragon the very next day. It's best we give you a new name now."

I sighed again. "Fine. So what will my dragon name be?" I asked.

"I think you deserve to have a name that represents power, that shows wisdom. I know. Your dragon name shall be... Doulstraz."
Part 5 is up. Part 6 just might be on the way today.

I've got a game for you guys. I've left a bit of an easter egg in this story. The first person to find out what it is will get a personal fave from me, as well as a comment on whichever of their works I like best. Happy hunting.

I hope you enjoy this.

Hmmm... I think the Easter egg is the referrence to Dragoness - she was a character in 'A new life', wasn't she?

What's an easter egg ?

Anyways, nice chapter :D!

An easter egg is a little suprise put into a story for the reader/watcher/whatever to find. They're also sometimes found on DVDs. And sorry to tell you, but someone already found the easter egg(It was a reference to my first TF story on here, even though the two have nothing to do with each other).
But I'm glad you're liking the story so far! Just wish I could get it published...
ManicWolf Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
hmm, so that's what they are.

And as far as publishing goes... I don't think I'm the right person to ask about it :P

In the story the man that Angela was talking about the one that was turned into a dragon by the girl dragon, he is Titus's dad and the girl dragon is his mom, that is what I am going to guess I'll read on to find out.

Animeboye Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2007  Student
Same here. I mean, I'll spot them at times but other than that, they mostly have to be in plain view for me to see.
artiantil Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2007
Yeah, I agree T.T Im no good at looking for things XD

animorph59 Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2007
is that one story about i forgot i thought i had it
gamer2774 Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2007
for some reason the name Doulstraz sounds like it's from the book eragon or eldest. is that the easter egg?
Animeboye Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2007  Student
To be honest, I've never read Eragon or Eldest. The name Doulstraz was supposed to be inspired by a name HerbalDrink mentioned when I commented on his Dreams of Dragons story. He said he was going to name one of his chracters something like that so that's how I got that name(Hope it isn't copyright).

And sadly, it isn't the easter egg. Check my reply to Lance100usa's comment. That should help(I hope.)
HerbalDrink Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2007
Yeah, I decided to name my character's dragon form that but I haven't really gotten to using it in a story yet. I don't mind. ;p
Transmorphic-Wyvern Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2007  Hobbyist Writer
Nice story so far, I would guess that the easter egg would be... I don't know lol
Animeboye Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2007  Student
Aw crap. I should've added a hint.

Here's the hint: It's a reference to a story I previously wrote. The chracter's name is also mentioned.

Anyways, I'm glad you like it so far.
