    The Dragon story

    The night air was clear and crisp, the moon glowing white. In the middle of a moor there stand a great marble temple. It was not big but yet it was beautiful, the white colloms in a circle with a domed roof. In the temple the floor is obsidion, but the people of this country call it "Dragon rock". A small pillar about waist hight is in the center. The pillar in made of marble and inlaid with emralds, rubies, and sahpires. You could get rich by taking parts of the temple and selling then, but the the thing that catches your attention is the egg on the small pillar. The egg is the size of a full grown man's head, and a light sky blue. It is a dragon egg, waiting for the touch of it's 'Meho'. Mehos are people who are the ones destined to rude a dragon. The dragon cannot hatch untill an a Meho without a dragon comes in contact with the egg. Mehos are born with special powers that they do not know of untill they are 'Gaddered'; paired with a dragon. This egg in the middle of the temple in the middle of a moor was very important. It was destined to bring back the golden age, the age of magic. <p> I hope you liked it! I haven't decided a name yet so please give me some ideas. Also, character apps are excepted! Here are some Meho powers, Lightning, Healer, Fire, Water, Ice, Snow, Sun, Rain, Animals, and Plants. Please only three Mehos to one power so there is a balance. Mahos also need dragons so please include those in your character apps too. Thanks for reading!- <br> &real ising &#8499 oon
