His dad was very evil. The palace was as big as a mansion and his two brothers were always bullying Acacitli. They thought he was a baby. As soon as Acacitli walked past the girls they all screamed.
The village he lived in was being attacked by an enormous lion headed, dragon bodied monster. He wasn`t just attacking houses and little village, he was attacking children and humans and even other animals but then Acacitli went to find the lion headed, dragon bodied monster and on his way he travelled across a body bogy swamp and then had to climb the slippery snowy mountain. He kept falling back down but then a little bird said “I have a message for you, the princess is waiting for you to save her, she has been locked up by your father and is being held prisoner by the lion head dragon bodied monster."
