The troop led him to a high cliff and there laid down the sacred fruit of their realm. As Brandon watched from his hiding place in the trees, he saw a faint glow in the midnight sky. The illumination grew closer, and he gasped in amazement. Brilliant turquoise, luscious green, and vibrant blue lights transformed into a glorious Moon Dragon. The dragon’s wings spread wide as he glided through the dark night sky, ending his entrance by perching on a sliver of silver moon. There he sat, gazing at all of them with opalescent eyes.
The fairies bowed and began another chant,
“Draco, Draco, we come to you this night.
With blessings and our sacrifice we plead for your insight.
Please touch our hearts with wisdom, ignite our consciousness,
And bless us with a sprinkling of
The magic you possess.”
Iridescent turquoise wrapped Draco's body. Dark purple wings glistened from his back. Brandon watched as the glorious dragon let out an ardent roar and soared toward the Milky Way. Tilting his wings, he dove into it covering his scales with the thick milky fluid.
Draco then plummeted toward the troop. The fairies didn’t flinch. Each lifted cupped hands above its head in earnest anticipation. As Draco devoured the distance between them Brandon could see a delighted smile form on the dragon's lips. He was sure Draco was going to swoop down and grab one of the divine beings and carry it back to his lair. But then something amazing happened.
