The roar of a dragon rang through the mountains, the crisp snow being rattled. The trees were trampled with the rush of animals scrambling up, thinking the pine needles were a stable shelter. Loud, strong flaps casted shadows over the landscape, white and gray scales shimmering in the sky. You could hear shouts all around you, weapons clicking together, getting ready to shed the blood of a beast. The noon sun blinded you momentarily as you ran from your home, your village, and everything you knew. Your legs, pushed by fear, skidded, and you ducked under a rock, cradling yourself.

You could be saved. Or maybe not. Just try to chill out, you tell yourself. It's fine. But you see one cloud. It really stands out. You get up.

You're falling.
