The dragon hovered over the train. It’s head was arrow-shaped and it had an extended neck that whipped around like a snake. It’s abdomen was small leading to a long tail which ended in a split-shape almost like a trident. It’s wings were humongous. They were large leather and bone contraptions. Every time the large beast would bellow out a shot of fire the wings seemed to get in the way. They would char, leaving small red balls of flame, but would then extinguish quickly. The large bird man held Dontarius tightly as it fought to avoid the blaze but the dragon out maneuvered and faced the bird man. The tip of the dragon’s nose smoldered and it’s entire head bled smoke. The bird man attempted to fly down and right but the dragon countered. Other bird men flew from other directions. Suicide missions that were intended to distract the dragon and save lives but only took them. The dragon opened it’s large dinosaur jaws and snapped each creature the flew near. The large bird man attempted to fly right then left again but the dragon read each move. From inside the dragons mouth shadows of it’s large teeth danced in front of an orange glaze. Smoke began to billow from the dragons nose then mouth. The dragon opened his mouth wider and the bird man dropped Dontarius.
Dontarius fell through the sky face down. A bullet of warmth cruised from his head to toes as the ground became closer and closer. The station was four-hundred yards behind him. Beneath him was a thick blanket of trees. Green mushroom shaped bringers of pain and death. Dontarius was two-hundred feet from the ground when he was dropped. His hands and feet went numb with anticipation as the tree line quickly approached.
Dontarius hit the treeline and disappeared within the forest. The first limb struck him hard in the gut and another in the chest. The wind in his lungs swept from his chest and he gasp. The weight of his feet pulled him down and then backward. He then fell another twenty feet to a tri-fecta of pain and agony. A large limb caught him and spun him into a pair of smaller limbs. Those limbs held for seconds as he caught his breath then tumbled into the trunk when they gave way. The remaining fall went dark. Dontarius went unconscious.
End Chapter 1
The rest of this submission will likely be put somewhere till I complete it at the end of the month. Knowing me I will not be a stranger to posting because I get excited about these awesome stories. I still have some other projects I’m working on. I’m hoping to still post a minimum of 300 + words for City of Zombies.. Thanks for reading.. 🙂
