Suddenly she heard something that made her almost scream! She had heard something that sounded like something in pain, it could have been the wind Clara thought, but she didn’t think so. So she got out of bed and climbed out the window to see what it was!
It was cold and windy and Clara wished she could go back inside but she couldn’t because she wanted to know what the sound was. So she followed the sound. As she ran her night dress ripped on a bush. Then she got to the sound, it was a dragon lighting a fire and nursing a wound on it’s leg!
“Are you alright? Clara asked the dragon, “It hurts” it whimpered. “What's your name, mine is Clara?”
“Mileanoa” the dragon answered.
“OK Mileanoa, I will get something for your wound, my mum is a vet, she taught me first aid for animals” Clara replied.
So Clara went outside got a mint leaf, a mango tree leaf and a bit of water, she then crushed it up smeared it on the wound and gently wrapped a leaf around Mileanoa’s leg.
“Thank you” Mileanoa said happily “It’s OK” Clara replied. Then they agreed that Clara would go home in the morning.
At 2:00am Clara woke because she thought heard cackling! So when she woke a horrible sight awaited her, Mileanoa was being put into a huge cage with thick iron bars! “Mileanoa!! Clara cried, Mileanoa woke with a start. “Huh what’s going on! she cried. Suddenly an ugly, revolting, rich, wrinkly witch with clean, white teeth showed herself from the other side of the cage cackling “Ooh look what we have here, boy get this girl in the cage with the dragon!!” she yelled.
“Yes Lordess” a sad eyed, skinny, dirty boy replied.
Mileanoa and Clara were taken away to a huge mansion where they were put into a dark musty dungeon.
“Stay there!!” the lady screeched and she slammed the heavy metal door and turned the lock.
The door inside had no handle! “What will we do now?” Clara asked Mileanoa, “She wants my fur for a potion to take over the world then she wants to sell me for a money machine that turns paper to hundred dollar notes” Mileanoa said miserably to Clara.
“It’s all my fault, I’m sorry Clara.”
“Don’t be upset, it’s not your fault, it’s her fault” Clara said kindly to Mileanoa. “Let’s get out of here!”
Clara searched on the ground for something to put in the side of the door to prise it open. Just as she was about to get to the end of the dungeon she found a paper clip! Suddenly she felt something warm and soft, she screamed “Ahhhhh there is a thing over there!!!” Mileanoa lit a stick with fire and light flooded the dungeon.
And there sitting in the corner was a tiny white mouse “Hello my name is Squeeky,” the mouse squeaked. “I hear you need me to escape, I can crawl through that gap in the wall and set you free with that paper clip for you.” “Thanks Squeeky” Clara replied.
So Squeeky crawled through the gap and opened the door for them. Then Squeeky jumped into Clara’s pocket.
Clara and Mileanao then crawled slowly towards an open window and looked out. It was very far down, so Mileanoa said “You can jump on my back, I will burn the edges of the window to make it bigger so I can fly through.” “OK Mileanoa” Clara whispered. Mileanoa blasted the window with fire, Flame went everywhere around the window.
Suddenly there were yells of “They’re over here!!” “Quick!!” Clara exclaimed. “NOW!!!” Mileanoa yelled.
Clara clambered onto Mileanoa’s back and they were off, it was fantastic to be flying in the sky. Suddenly she heard something, she turned, but just as she did everything went black. The sounds were fading. She heard distant sounds of “Yes’’ then everything was silent!
She woke up on the ground. She got up and saw that Mileanoa had taken her home, “Meet my friends,” Mileanoa exclaimed. There stood some little creatures and a cat bus. “The side of an arrow hit your head and you were knocked out” Mileanoa explained .“Oh,’’ Clara murmured.
‘My friends names are Migo, Frigo, Sigo and Tigo, the girls names are Lucy and Lilly,’’ Mileanoa said happily. “
“Wait a minute, this is my mother’s house!!” Clara exclaimed.
Suddenly Clara’s mother came running out into the backyard to Clara and an hour later when they were settled they all played together and lived happily ever after.
