Day 11:- Writing Challenge
Topic:- Describe a dragon along with their hoard.
New word used:- Surreal (adjective)
Deep beneath the snow-covered mountains in the icy north, in a firelit cave, lies a scarlet-colored dragon almost fast asleep, wrapped around some pillars, with smoke curling from her nostrils. Laying there on her hind limbs, she gives off the aura of elegance yet power. Her long tail with scales on them- a glimmer in the firelight, with two beautifully sharpened horns having vertical line patterns, and her glowing emerald eyes that take in the things she has gathered over the years, gives off a surreal view.
Around her is a stockpile of knowledge lost to time and prehistoric treasures that have not seen the daylight in centuries.
The walls of the cave are lined with shelves, some of which hold books and scrolls in languages humans have not spoken in millenials. Other shelves hold modern literature as well as, scientific and mythological knowledge, brought to the dragon by those humans who have safeguarded the secret of her existence since the time of her discovery.
A thick and bulky, golden chain, glimmers around the dragon’s long and elegant neck. Her long, pointed claws are also tipped with gold foil as if she dipped them into a molten pool. The dragon herself lies upon a pile of exquisitely cut jewels of all types from rubies to sapphires along with gold coins and biscuits, making it look like a throne, while other uncut-jewels lie scattered across the room. In carefully crafted and intricately patterned-treasure chests, lie ancient riches cradled in silk and velvet cloth, gleaming in the firelight.
The dragon blinks-close her emerald eyes and dreams of times long lost when dragons ruled the skies and the land beneath them.
