The dragon king
A story written by Ademolar
He woke alone, in a room, surrounded by pole of candles . He look around to observe where he was, but everything look strange and new to him. His throat felt dry and raspy. He had dreamed … what had he dreamed? He did not remember. Outside, voices were speaking in a tongue he did not know. Ajadi swung his legs through the curtains and hopped to the ground, to find Marvel standing by the horses with two riders looming over him. Both wore shirts of worn leather beneath cloaks of dark brown wool, but their swords were sheathed and the fat man did not look to be in danger.
“I need a piss,” ajadi announced. He waddled off the road, undid his breeches, and relieved himself into a tangle of thorns. It took quite a long time.
“He pisses well, at least,” a voice observed. Ajadi flicked the last drops off and tucked himself away.
“Pissing is the least of my talents. You ought to see me s–t.” He turned to Marvel
. “Are these two known to you, marvelous ? They look like outlaws. Should I find my axe?”
“Your axe?” exclaimed the larger of the riders, a brawny man with a shaggy beard and a shock of orange hair. “Did you hear that, Haldon? The little man wants to fight with us!” His companion was older, clean-shaved, with a lined ascetic face. His hair had been pulled back and tied in a knot behind his head.
“Small men oft feel a need to prove their courage with unseemly boasts,” he declared. “I doubt if he could kill a duck.” shrugged the old man.
“Fetch the duck.” “If you insist.” The rider glanced at his companion. The brawny man unsheathed his sword.
“I’m Duck, you mouthy little pisspot.” ajadi cursed!
” Oh, gods be good. I had a smaller duck in mind.” The big man roared with laughter.
“That’s enough!!” marvel ordered!
The two men became silent afterward.
” I appreciate your efforts, now you can leave ” he suggested as the two grownup galloped away with immediate effect ..
“This place doesn’t look like one of the villages around, How did I get here?” Ajadi quarried!
“I brought you here” confirmed marvel
“Oh! The egg!” he screamed as if marvel response titillate his memory back to life..
“Don’t worry about the egg, I already have it”
He move a bit forward and he look around
“why did you bring me here”
“To learn ” replied Marvin.
“Learn what? You can’t just teach me what am not ready to learn, you know ?” ajadi protest
“Sure! I can’t, but how do you differentiate what you need from what you want ?” Marvin asked!
“They are both the same, all I need is surely what I want ”
“Sorry! You are wrong, most times human mistake what they want for what they need”
“Sorry! I still don’t need it, can I take my leave? “Ajadi asked..
“You are free” Marvin replied
He walked out of the vicinity into the market of city of light, he dazzle and dance his way down the market road as he pass myriad of shops and tents, on his way going he saw 3 men following him with horse . Immediately he stop walking, and he turned and opt to take another way out .
“He is running away” one of the men announced.
Immediately the three men focused their attention on him as started chasing him with horse , ajadi increased him running velocity and dashed among the woods down to marvel’s place. One of them who was close to him threw a wooden rope at him aiming for his leg, ajadi fell to the groud like a tree ..
“You think you can run from your shadow? ” one of the men asked as ajadi was crawling and rolling on the ground.
“What do we do with him” asked the second man
“He will be a good sell, for king loki” the third man replied..
They tied him and pull him on their horse and they gallop down to ayetoro.
