Most people want to be the sun that brightens your day. I'd rather be the moon that shines down on you in your darkest hour.


It was a beautiful morning. The sun was out, the birds were chirping, and the trees looked beautiful with early morning dew on their leaves.

Yeah, right.
If I ever heard a morning like that, it’d be from a book. My mornings where never like that. Ever.

Especially this morning. I had woken up an extra ten minutes later than usual, and my hair was frizzier than ever. I had to run out of the house in my worst pair of jeans and my dirty hoodie. So far, it wasn’t a good morning.

As I walked down my street to my bus stop, it annoyed me at how everything was so…chirpy. It was late in the fall and it was a pretty warm for a day in November. My birthday had been weeks ago, and yet I felt like nothing had changed. I was fifteen now. That had to mean something.

I stopped walking as I came to my neighbor’s house. He only lived two doors down from me, so the bus driver said we’d get picked up at his place. I didn’t mind. Usually I liked my morning walks down to his house.

I waited impatiently for the bus to come up the hill and looked behind me to see where my neighbor Kris was.

I heard the bus’s engine and looked behind me to see it going up the hill to pick up its first stop. I rolled my eyes and said, “You have got to be kidding me.”

I rubbed my forehead with my hand and knew that today wasn’t going to go well at all. I breathed in deeply and snapped my eyes open as I saw a white van come tearing down the street and headed straight for me. I jumped back and watched as the van drove half onto the driveway, half onto the grass. The van door slid open and I saw my best friends head pop out and look at me. When my eyes met hers, she smiled mischievously and said, “Get in.”

We make the dragons as we make the gods, because we need them, because somewhere deep in our hearts, we recognize that a world without them is a world not living in.
No, I would not want to live in a world without dragons, as I would not want to live in a world wihtout magic, for that is a world without mystery, and that is a world without faith.

<3 it:)
