THE DRAGON

EVERY SUMMER THE DRAGON COMES, IT LEAVES AGAIN IN FALL.

IT VISITS DESTRUCTION ON VARIOUS KINGDOMS THROUGHOUT THE RELM.

THE DRAGON HAS A NAME,

WILDFIRE.

SOME YEARS WILDFIRE IS SLOW AND LAZY AND EASILY BEATEN.

BUT OTHER YEARS IT IS QUICK AND LIKES TO FIGHT HARD.

WILDFIRE HAS FRIENDS WITH NAMES LIKE FUEL WIND AND TERRAIN.

FUEL IS DRY THIS YEAR AND BURNS HOT AND FAST WIND SEEMS STRONGER.

TERRAIN NEVER CHANGES.

WILDFIRE HAS ENEMIES WITH NAMES IT KNOWS, HOTSHOTS, SMOKEJUMPERS, AND ENGINES

TENDERS, TRACTORS AND TANKERS.

WHEN WILDFIRE VISITS A KINGDOM IT’S ENEMIES RESPOND WITH STRENGTH AND NUMBERS

TO BATTLE THE DRAGON.

USUALLY THE DRAGON LOSES QUICKLY AND RETIRES FROM THE FIELD OF BATTLE

LEAVING ITS ENEMY'S TIRED BUT UNHARMED

OTHER TIMES THE DREAGON FIGHTS FIERCELY AND MAY EVEN SEND SOME OF IT’S ENEMIES

TO ANOTHER PLACE,

DEATH.

SOMETIMES THE DRAGON WINS.

WHEN THE DRAGON WINS IT SEEMS LIKE THE BATTLE IS NOT WORTH THE EFFORT,
FOR AWHILE.

THE ENEMIES OF WILDFIRE MOURN FOR THEIR FALLEN COMRADES AND COMFORT
EACH OTHER.

THEY GAIN STRENGTH, FAITH, HOPE, ENOUGH TO JOIN THE BATTLE

ONCE MORE.

FOR THE DRAGON WILL RETURN
