The Story – Chapter 58

March 18, 2014

I looked at their faces. “It’s just a stone–I found it at the tower. I thought it was just a stone.” I looked up at The Fire, he looked back. “Is it yours?”

“No, I have not seen it before.”

I looked at the stone in my palm, glowing brightly. He had managed to touch my arm again. “Do you want it?” I asked. The thought of giving it away caused an ache in my chest and I hoped he would say no.


I sighed happily and he let go of my arm. I knew, he knew I hadn’t wanted to give it away.

I looked around. “It’s just a stone.” I said but they all looked sceptical.

Herman threw some water on the campfire. “We should get some sleep… it’s a long trip in the morning.”

The two dragons settled in close to the smoking campfire. I could hear Fred scuttling around in the trees above, which curled the hair on the back of my neck. Honest, I was trying to think of him as a friend but seriously, he gave me the creeps. I imagined all those eyes staring down at us and shivered. Peter settled down next to the log outside my tent. My tent? Oh yay, I get one to myself this time. I looked around… wait… Herman sat staring into the darkness. I guessed he was going to take first watch. I entered my tent and jumped.

The Fire was sitting on my bed.

“Ahem… My tent.” I said as snarkily as I could manage.

He smiled at me in the darkness. “I thought you could do with some…”

“Don’t even finish that sentence, buddy.” I snapped and pointed to the door. “Out!”

He brushed past me, a little too close for comfort. He chuckled as he left.

Before I went to sleep I stared down at the stone. It was dark and still, lying in the middle of my palm.
