                                                   Pt. 8 A Trip to the Dragon Realm



I slept in my bed. Or whatever you could call it. I had been dreaming about what I'll be like when I'm fully dragon. I imagined that I'd be somewhat short since I'd be a dragon child. I dreamt that I had a long snout and two beautiful horns growing out of my head. My horns in my dream were a bloodish red. My nostrils were instead two slits in my snout.

The entrance to my cave opened, the light shining on me. I woke up, trying to keep my eyes closed. Angela walked in.

"Doulstraz..." Angela said.

"Yeah?" I asked drowzily.

"I need to talk to you."

I got out of bed. I saw that Sarah was still sleeping in the other nest. I wondered how it could be comfortable for her. Maybe she's slept like that before?

"Angela, what's going on?" I asked, rubbing my eyes.

"I think it's time I take you to the Dragon Realm."

"Huh? Why?" I asked.

"Don't you want to meet your parents?" Angela asked.

I gasped. I hadn't seen my parents in almost a month. I wondered if they could've really been in the Dragon Realm.

"If that's the case. Yeah! I do want to go!" I exclaimed.

"Then I'm coming too!"

I heard Sarah's voice coming from the entrance to the cave. I turned my head and saw Sarah standing right before the entrance.

"No. This is only a realm that dragons may enter." Angela explained.

"But Titus isn't fully dragon and you said HE can go." Sarah said.

"Yeah...but... you see, Titus is..."

"Please, Angela. Sarah's a good person. I don't think she'll tell any other humans." I said.

"Doulstraz, are you sure?" Angela asked.

I turned to Sarah and smiled. "When I'm near Sarah, I can tell that she's good. IF there was any decit in her, I'd know. She really DOES just want to see real live dragons." I explained.

Angela sighed. "Fine." She said.

The portal to the Dragon Realm opened up behind Angela. Angela walked into the portal.

"Titus?" Sarah asked.

"Yeah?"

"Thanks for sticking up for me." She said, blushing.

"Hey. Anything for a friend."

We walked through the portal together. As soon as we entered, it closed behind us.

The three of us flew through a weird void. There was nothing. It was dark ad I could hardly see Sarah or Angela.

"We should be getting to the Dragon Realm soon." Angela said. I couldn't tell where she was, so I just followed her voice.

A minute later, I saw a big ball of light. I assumed it was the exit. I closed my eyes as I moved towards the light.

As I opened my eyes, I found myself in a field. It was beautiful. There was a small creek, as well as a bunch of caves, possibly the homes of the dragons who lived in this world.

Angela walked towards one of the caves. Sarah and I followed her. Upon getting to the entrance of the cave, Angela stopped.

"Angela? Why are we stopping?" I asked.

"Doulstraz, are you really ready to meet your parents for the first time?" Angela asked.

I didn't know what she meant by "first time". I guessed she meant the first time I'd seen them in so long. I nodded yes and we walked into the cave.

We walked through the dark cave. The light dimmed with each step we took. It was hard to see but Angela guided us. I figured since dragons lived in darkness, it wouldn't be hard for them to see where they were going.

I could hear faint breathing. Except it wasn't human. It was two dragons.

"We're here." Angela said.

The two dragons lit the torches in the cave, making it brighter.

"Doulstraz?" One of the two dragons asked.

"Angela, what's going on? Where are my parents?" I asked.

"Angela, you did a fine job of looking after Doulstraz for us." the female dragon said.

"What?!" I asked.

"Doulstraz, I'd like you to meet...your mother and father."

"What?! They can't be my parents! They're dragons! Unless you TURNED them into dragons!" I was growing furious.

"Titus! Calm down!" Sarah said, trying to help me.

"It's not true! It can't be true! If they're my real parents, then who, or WHAT, am I?"

"Doulstraz...I guess we should explain." The dragon, claiming to be my father said.

"You see, Doulstraz, you were born a dragon."

"That can't be!" I Shouted. "All my memories are of my life as a human. Tell me how I'm a dragon if I don't have any memories of being one!"

"It's simple." The dragon, claiming to be my mom explained. "You were too young to remember. You were sent to the Human Realm because a great tragedy happened shortly after you were born. Cruel humans took baby dragons from their families. They were taken back to the human realm and sold into slavery."

"They were...?". I said. It sounded hard to believe, but what reason did I have not to believe them on this. They wouldn't make up something as horrible as that.

"We sent you through the gate that connects the human and dragon realms because we felt you would have a better life. Anything to get away from being a slave."

I lowered my head. Tears flowed out of my eyes. IF this was true, then my whole life was a lie. But how could it be? My human parents always told me stories of how Ben and they would hold me after my birth. I remembered how protective Ben was of me and how he always stuck up for me. I remembered when I was just four years old, it was my birthday and he bought me Flame. I also remembered when he told me he was going to collage and he wouldn't see me for a long time. I remembered waving goodbye, tearfully as he drove off for collage. I also remembered that as long as I had Flame, I would never be truly sad since it felt like Ben was always there, looking after me.

I brought my arm to my eyes. I tried to hide my tears as I sobbed uncontrolably.

"Titus.." Sarah said. I could sense sympathy in her voice.

"It can't be true! It can't be TRUE!" I exclaimed, tearfully.

Sarah turned to the two dragons. Now I sensed anger and sympathy. I didn't know how I could feel these feeling from people. Maybe this was how dragons were.

"You're NOT Titus' parents!" Sarah exclaimed.

"Titus' parents were there for him, they protected him, they showed him love and appricieaction. You two gave him up instead of trying to fight for him!"

"Th-There was nothing we could DO! We had to do what was best for him!" The mother dragon exclaimed.

"And look what the result was. You tore him up inside. Y'know, Titus taught me a valuble lesson when I met him. Family is not about whose blood you share. It's about the people who were there for you. The people who took you in and who raised you. I don't have any blood realitives anymore but I got something better: I got a brother! And his name is Titus Flamel! He's not the dragon named Doulstraz! He's Titus Flamel! A human in the human realm! And he's...my dear brother." Sarah said, sounding like she was about to cry too.

"Sarah.." I said to myself. I ran out of the cave, still covering up my eyes.

"Titus.."

I sat on the grass. My finned ears flattening again as well as my wings. Sarah walked out of the cave and sat down next to me.

"I just can't believe what they're saying. Abadoning me as a dragon and then making up some crap lie about how they couldn't do a thing to protect me." I said a little more calmly now.

"Are you okay, Titus?" Sarah asked.

I sighed. "I dunno. I don't even think I know who I am anymore. Am I really a dragon? Or am I a human who's becoming a dragon?"

Sarah wrapped her arms around my neck and hugged me.

"It doesn't matter what species you really are, Titus. You are who you are. You are who you want to be. At least. That's how I think it works."

"Sarah...thanks, sis." I said. I brought my arms and hugged her too.

Morning came to the Dragon Realm. The dragons with Angela walked out of the cave to see us off.

"Doulstraz..." The mother dragon said.

"Huh?"

"I'm sorry for everything I put you through. If you don't want to come back then... I want you to have a good life. With your family."

I sniffled a little. "Thanks...mom." I said. I ran to my mom and gave her a hug. This time I couldn't hold back my tears at all. My mom wiped the tears away with her snout.

"Doulstraz." My dad said. "I'm so proud of you. You're turning out to be a really good dragon. I hope you can continue to enjoy life in the human realm. Even if you know where you really came from."

"I will." Was all I said.

"Wait!" Angela said. "We can't leave yet!"

"Why not?" I asked.

"Because...there's something I need to show you."

Angela spit somethign out of her mouth. It landed on the grass. I picked it up. It felt gross since it was covered in dragon saliva.

After wiping the saliva away, I noticed what it was: a picture! It was a picture of my dragon parents...and a little baby dragon riding on my father's head.

"Is...is this little dragon...me?" I asked.

Angela nodded a yes.

"I see. I'll always treasure this picture."

The portal opened up again and Angela and Sarah walked through first.

"Bye, mom! Bye, dad!" I said, waving goodbye. I ran back to them one more time to give each of them a hug. Then I ran for the portal, which closed behind me. I could hear their last words to me:

"Take care, Doulstraz... our son."

I smiled to myself. "Take care..." I said quietly.

I flew through the portal with Angela and Sarah back to the human realm.

"Titus." Angela said. This was the first time since we first met that she called me Titus.

"Yeah?" I asked.

"You realize now what started your transformation, right?" Angela asked.

"I always thought it was my plushie." I said.

"No. You're becoming what you always were in reality. And when your transformation is complete, I bet your parents will be proud of you."

"Which ones?" I asked.

"I bet both would be." Angela said, smiling warmly at me.

The ball of light appeared in front of us and we ended up back in the human realm. I figured there was only one thing left to the key to my past: And that was to ask Ben what he knew about when I was a dragon. But I knew I'd have to wait until my transformation was over. I decided I would try to enjoy the rest of my transformation. I knew that mom and dad, both my human parents and my dragon parents, would be watching over me. Kepping a close eye on me as my transformation neared its conclusion.
Pt.8 is up, y'all.

This might be the saddest(By far the saddest) chapter of this story yet. It explains what's causing Titus to turn into a dragon and who his real parents really are.

Hope you enjoy.

What people don't really know is that dragons would kill whoever tried to hurt their own children, but many wouldn't because they'd harm their own in the crossfire. :(

Exactly! That's probably also why Titus' parents sent him to the human world. And if they fought back, they might have been killed and Titus(Or Doulstraz) would have been sold into slavery. And seeing as how Titus' real parents seem to be really nice, they probably didn't want to take any chances and hurt Titus while trying to fight off those humans.

Aww...That made me shed a few tears. Thats just sad. I mean it. But keep up the good work! Now i gotta get back to my story...:]

Yeah. Especially considering everything Titus has been through: Losing the people he thought were his parents, losing his home, losing his friends, having his humanity stripped away from him. Then finding out that his real parents are dragons and that all this time he was actually a pureblooded dragon and that his parents abandoned him. That's enough to make anyone miserable.

I'm glad you liked it. I'll check out your story and comment on it.
