If that sword touches me I will torch you, the dragon promised. A promise from a dragon! Kilroy’s heart leapt. He was surely well-known and important now. He had no idea that he spoke dragon until today. What does the beast want? A voice asked. Great idea! What do you want? Kilroy asked the dragon. Unfortunately, these were his last years For his sword had accidentally touched the beast.
