Lady Lava

I’m lady lava and I now am in heaven but I’m going to tell you the story of the time before I got here. In 1662 there lived a dragon she was emerald green with frosty blue eyes and emerald flames, white markings down her back she was beautiful. On the mountains of Transylvania the villagers cowered in their beds as they heard the fearsome roar and pleading scream of a dragon. You have probably guessed that the dragon was me and I was never saved.  

Lady Lava 1662

I was done asking for help that would never come even though no sounds were coming out of my mouth didn’t mean I wasn’t still screaming inside. The pain wasn’t going away no matter how much I scream and plead the human couldn’t hear me and didn’t care. I don’t know what I did maybe it just because I’m a dragon but that’s not my fault. You have lots of questions huh?
My name is Lady Lava as you gathered I’m a dragon. I don’t terrorize towns or anything I live with my keeper if you can even call it living, I die a little more inside every single night. He has many implements of pain I’ve been whipped, burned and everything else imaginable the only peace I have is when my keeper dies but there is always another one, ready to torture me. I have never been able to fly or stretch my wings the only thing I ever see is a cruel smile, my blood and the cave walls. “why” I scream, “what did I do that was so horribly wrong I’m subjected to this every night” but the answer never comes. This has been happening to me since I hatched. I never have seen my mother but I do remember warmth and the warm comforting feeling that I was loved but now that is so long ago I sometimes wonder if it was just a dream. As the whip cracks again and again I struggle in my chains but all I hear is crack and clatter of my chains no running feet of a villager here to rescue me. I fall limply to the ground. As the world fades around me I dream of breaking free and flying through the sky. That one word so many possibilities float’s through my head. Free. Free to dream, free to love, free from the pain…

I wake but I’m not in the cave anymore I look around me and I see a field with fresh food and water. I move expecting to hear the rattle of chains and the sound of the keepers footsteps but it’s strangely absent. I slowly lumber over to the food and look up and there sitting on a blanket in the grass is a man I slowly back away. He stands and walks over to me slowly with a small sad smile “Lady Lava you are free I’m sorry I couldn’t help sooner but I cannot interfere with life that way” he says and then he pets my head and says the words that I thought I would never hear,” you are free dear”  I don’t hurt anymore and I can move around finally. I come to know the man as God and he slowly becomes my best friend. I am truly free.

free to love, free to dream and free from the pain.

My story didn’t end with me falling in love but who knows what may happen. I sometimes resent the villagers that never helped but I also understand that people can be cowardly and I hope someday that will change. I watch the man that did this to me and I interfere with his plans I watch after my dragon kin to make sure this never happens again.

These words go through my head all the time. Free to fly free to dream free to love free from the pain.
