There once was a small castle by the sea and in castle lived a king with his daughter and his wife.The king was an old man ruling the kingdom for thirty years he was a just and beloved king.However his wife was not the queen,the queen has died long ago and the woman he married after her death was young and beautiful and her name was Elisa.The kingdom he and Elisa ruled was not big,nor was their castle,but they like it there and they weren;t rich enough to expand and cowuer.King's daughter Debbie was a girl of short stature,brown dull eyes and short trimmed brown hair.Yet very charming and pleasant with a wild personnality.She was often found in the gardens buy the shore playing her violin.She mastered it as a child and even the nightingales on the trees envied her music.However Debbie wasn;t loved by anyone but her father and stepmother.One day Debbie was playing her violin in the garden alone,when suddenly a enormous dragon appeared in the sky .He was so big his shadow covered the entire castle in darkness.He had black thick skin and red eyes.His roar made the ground thrembled and everyone in the castle scattered in fear,everyone but Debbie.She was brave and didn;t fear the evil dragon for she had her music.She ran up the stairs to the roof of the castle and once she looked on as the dragon was burning the gardens with his fire,and she started playing her violin.she made up notes as she played quickly without stopping each part more beautiful then the last.She attracted the attention of the beast.The dragon looked and listened his long muzzle breathing hot air onto Debbie,but she was not afraid she kept playing faster and faster her fingers hammering down on the thin strings of her violin,for she knew if she stopped playing the dragon will no longer be distracted and will burn her and the castle to the ground.She played and played until the dragon became weary and sleepy,in that moment of weakness a brave knight stabbed the dragon through his heart.The dragon died,but with one last breath he snapped the neck of Debbie's violin with his jaw.The dragon was slain but Debbie was not happy.She lost the only thing that wad dear to her.She cried and cried for days,refusing to eat or drink.She locked her self in the darkness of her room,crying alone,forgotten by everyone.But one day,months after the dragon attack,as Debbie was writing her diary in her room,sad and lonely like aways,she heard a familiar sound.It was music,someone in the castle was playing! Debbie's heart filled with joy she ran downstairs to the throne room,and there she found a young boy,much younger then her playing a violin,playing the same song that she played to the dragon.The music made her forget everything and,first time in months,she smiled.She befriended the boy and as a gift he gave her a new violin.She played in the garden everyday like before,only now she wasn;t alone,the boy was by her side playing with her on his violin.
