The Devil Girl's Dragon

A myth submitted to the site by Maria Gale

Scotland, Dumfries , Scotland

Once there was a man, Ben Douglas. He had a beautiful daughter of 10. The man once had a wife, Ellie, who died the same day his daughter was born. When she died she told Ben not to harm her daughter. Ben named the daughter, Gina. He hated her but still cared for her.

One day it was his daughter’s birthday, which meant that the day his wife died. Gina sang “Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me …” Ben became furious and seized the girl’s arms and dragged her out of the house.

She walked away from the house, not knowing what she did. It started to rain. Gina sat on a rock, she was far from home. She sang “Father what have I done…” She did not know that a dragon lying nearby could hear her. The dragon said “Follow me” he dragged the girl and took her to his den. Days past, and the girl became attached to the dragon.

While back at Gina’s house, Ben became worried. He took his best men to find her. When he found her lying beside the dragon, he killed the dragon. The girl awoke and screamed “I AM CURSING YOU! AT NIGHT THE DEVIL WILL TAKE YOU AND YOUR FOOLISH SOUL” She ran away never to be seen again. Ben surprisingly said “Let us go, she now belongs to the devil” He left. 40 years past and nothing happened. People say that you can still hear her singing as she keeps the memory of the dragon with her.
