The Mystical City

​Scoil Chill Ruadháin, 4th Class, County Cork, 10 March 2017

Once upon a time, there was a boy and his name was Jeffrey.

A good many years ago (in dragon years, ten human years is actually one dragon year) he fell down a hole and met this girl, Demolita.

She gave him a drink that was poisoned and made him turn into a half-dragon, half-human.

He tried to climb back up and he fell asleep. 

When he woke up the next morning he was in the desert and he had nowhere to go.

He started walking, he found this little cave and that’s where he started to live.

He lost his memory in the cave because the poison destroyed his memory of all his friends and family.

Little did he know, 100 feet beneath the cave there was a city frozen into the ice.

There was only one survivor and her name was Jemimah.

This was Jemimah’s city.

Jeffrey wanted to make his cave bigger.

He saw something shining in the ice.

It was Jemimah’s illuminous clothes!

Jeffrey melted the frozen city, and Jemimah.

“Ahhhhh!” she screamed when she saw him because she got a fright. 

“Why are you screaming?” Jeffrey said.

“You’re … a … dra  …gon!”

And then he screamed.

He looked into the ice and realised for the first time that he was a half-dragon
