" Draken, you need to put that book down. You’ll run into a wall."
" Shut your fruit loop hole. That only happened once. Besides, I’m researching."
" Let me guess…"
" Dragons," we said simultaneously. We do that a lot. I don’t know why he’s so opposed to me studying dragons.
" Dude, you’re 14, you need to give this up. There are no such things as dragons."
" And just how do you know this?"
" Be cause it’s a fairy tale!"
"so was America, and A.D and B.C. But they turned out to be true."
Leif gave himself a face palm.
" I’ll see you tomorrow, okay?"
" See ya’"
I continued on. I will find dragons, if it kills me. I prefer it didn’t. Now, I actually have an idea were one might be! There was a sighting on the cave near my house, on the very island I live on! I’m going there to pack. I always carry the same stuff with me: a journal, my recurve bow, 3 pencils, a sharpener, and a sword.
Leif and I have known each other, well forever. I can’t remember a day when I didn’t know Leif. I met him in preschool. Anyway, to my house. Tonight, I go to the summit.
