Storyteller Series: The Quest of Galamar
"But what if it's right about the dragon? What if I can't protect you?" asked Lily.
"I'll take my chances. I'm supposed to be the one protecting you, remember?" teased Peter. "Besides, if there is a dragon, I'm certainly not going to let you face it alone."
"Maybe if we made her think I was alone, I could distract her while you got the stone?" said Lily, thinking out loud.
"Her? We don't even know if there is a dragon, much less whether it's a him or a her," said Peter.
"Take cover!" yelled Jude up ahead of them, diving into the brush with Heather. Peter saw it first, a golden dragon swirling high above them. He pushed Lily down, following her to the ground.
"What is it?" cried Lily.
"Your dragon," whispered Peter, trying to look up through the branches they hid under.
"Her name is Ironclaw."
