The white dragon hunts you.
With eyes of a predator, ever watching.
Waiting in the dark shadows to strike.
I have chased this dragon before.
For he has haunted me, as well.
Many a lifetime ago.
That you did not know.
There is terror in my heart.
I want to scream, run!
But you will not hear me,
Over the roar of his breath,
or the promise of more.
Your choice binds you to the chase.
No spell I can cast will be enough to save you,
I can only stand here,
as this dragon looms
over your poisoned mind,
and weakened body.
You are running out of time.
The chaos is closing in.
Gripping you tighter every time.
I cannot stand to watch.
My heart dies a thousand deaths.
You must run.
Please, I beg of you, for all you are beautiful boy.
I don't want to watch you slip into the past,
As you fall prey to the dragon.
