Suddenly she heard a rustling in the bushes. She walked closer and saw a beautiful cream coloured dragon staring at her.
It jumped out of the bushes. The girl jumped back in fright.
“Hello,” she said, “I’m Cora.”
The dragon said nothing.
Cora said “I like your costume.”
The dragon snorted back and jumped over Cora’s head. Cora looked up it wasn’t a costume, it was real. Cora could not believe it.
Cora said “It’s just a dream,”and lay down and fell asleep.
The next morning she woke up.The dragon was laying at her feet. Cora went to pat it, the dragon woke up and lay back down.
Cora said “I’m going to call you Asrely”. She jumped on his back and said, “Please go up so I can find some food”.
They saw a house and flew down it.
They landed at the front door. Cora walked inside, she saw a piece of bread on the table. She went to pick it up. Out of the shadows she saw an ugly woman coming to her. The woman said ‘’You can have that piece of bread.”
Cora said, “Thanks!” and jumped onto Asrely’s back and flew off.
Cora was thinking about how ugly that lady looked, all wrinkly, with huge gold earrings and puffy hair and a wart on her nose.
As she was thinking about the old woman Cora flew over a little girl with two strange animals. She recognised two of them. One was Totero and the other was Blue Tortero.There were other animals with them. One was a small floating cat and the other a huge tiger bus cat. Cora and Asrely had one more look and flew of into the sunset.
The next day Cora found herself on an island. She had a dream about the big bus cat that had stripes like a tiger on it and large white teeth. She also dreamed about Blue Tortero which was grey and had a white tummy with grey arrow tops on it and about the small floating white cat. Then Cora fell back into a deep dreamless sleep.
The next morning she decided that she and Asrely should stay on the Island and build a home there.
A few days later they heard a roar. They woke up and saw the old, ugly woman with the Totero in a cage. The old ugly woman was obviously evil!. Cora looked again and she saw the girls with the floating cat and the bus cat.
Cora jumped on Asrely’s back .“Breath fire!” said Cora.
Asrely did and the old lady jumped in the water and swam away. She realised that Asrely was too strong for her. Asrely’s fire melted the cage and released the Totero.
They all decided that they would live on the island together forever.
