Freedom From the Dragon

A myth submitted to the site by TatendaZ

NORFOLK, ENGLAND

It was just another day. The whole town was fed up with the dragon that lay outside the town wall. There had been chaos for the first few months. But the dragon has been here seven months now, so people were getting fed up with it. Some people were getting so fed up with it that they were volunteering to go and try to kill the dragon. Whenever someone did that, the whole town would hide behind the black, cold stone wall and listen to another brave man suffer through his death.

Meanwhile the princess was brave enough to volunteer herself to try to kill the dragon. She bravely opened the high metal gate wearing her best dress for comfort. Then there was a high pitched scream echoing through the town followed by a loud roar. There was another scream and then an eager young man opened the heavy gate and with a single plunge of his sword he killed the dragon for good. He looked around and found the princess huddled up against the wall. They both entered the town amazed of what they had just witnessed.

The princess thanked the young boy for his bravery with the dragon and for saving her life.
They chatted a bit more until they thought it was getting late.

In the morning the princess was planning to invite the young man to lunch, but when she got outside he was gone.
She went around asking everyone if they had seen him but no one had, until she got to one of his friends. It turns out that his name was John and he was actually a knight that needed to return home as he was needed elsewhere. The princess was sad she didn't say goodbye but she understood that he needed to get home, so that was that.
