    dotsThe Knight of Navara Chapter 1dots
    -------------------------------------------


    The sky was a brilliant blue, Aries called no attention to it, he just studied the ground beneath his feet. Pebbles, dirt, a blade of grass here and there.
    He was standing guard at the entrance of the castle, his closest friend Lionel on the other side of the hard, brown, oak door.
    His thoughts turned to his parents, long gone, like a dream you had when you were young, but you can't forget it. He was told they died in a training accident, but Aries didn't believe it. There was a puddle on the ground, it showed him his long blonde hair, deep grey eyes, and a light scar he recieved from an animal in the woods.
    "So Aries... doin' anything after your shift?" Lionel asked him, his red beard waved as he talked, his red hair swayed over his blue eyes.
    "I'm not sure, I'll see if anything comes up. Why? You doing anything?" Aries replied, the sun blazed overhead, sweat began to bead on his forehead.
    "I was gonna go to the new tavern down the street, wanna come?" Lionel said, Aries knew the look in his face as much as he knew how to go to sleep, he wanted to gamble.
    "No, that's okay, I'm not into gambling." Aries said strictly, Lionel turned toward the gate and stared, not saying a word.

    That night, Aries went home to find his aunt making dinner.
    "When did you get here?" Aries asked her, she turned to face him.
    "Well, I decided to come and make you dinner and... tell you something I've been meaning to tell you for quite some time now." she replied, her voice was weak and old.
    "Your parents, they didn't die in a training accident, they were killed by the beast that lives in that volcano, Aries. I'm sorry I didn't tell you."
    " It's okay, I figured the accident wasn't the real reason anyway."

    Several weeks later Aries was once again standing at the door of the castle, the sky was clear once again.
    Around noon, there was an ear-shattering roar. Areis looked toward the sound and saw the dragon flying over the city. Flames leapt out of its wretched mouth, over its black, sharp teeth.
    Guards burst out of the castle and ran into the streets, Aries left his post and followed them.
    They all drew their bows and arrows and fired at the dragon, nearly all of them missed. One hit it in the right wing, and it fell to the ground. The guards and knights scattered as it fell toward them.
    The dragon blew a huge fireball at the group, many were incinerated, other burnt or badly damaged.
    As Aries passed the gate he saw the devestation, he drew his sword and lunged at its left wing, half of it fell to the gorund, the other half reamined on its back.As blood sloshed out of its wing stub, it ran back up to the volcano summit and let out another mighty roar and disappeared inside.

    TO BE CONTINUED....

    In the next chapter,

    Aries, Lionel, and two new teammates will go on a mission to find and destroy the dragon in its own domain

      Another sotry writer! Wonderful, I'll be by to follow Aries on his journey....

    A couple notes, the paced is very pushed, you pose an idea and resolve it in the next paragraph, could we have waited to know that Aries' parents weren't really killed in a training accident? Well I know we could have waited longer then a fourth of the first chapter. No need to give away everything for nothing. *lol* Also, this very much seems like a first draft, you have more potential then to use terms like "that beast" in "that volcano" try more description, intorduce the beast before we know it killed the main characters parents.

    That's just my two cents. Maybe instead of doing a new chapter every other day, try every week and really focusing on each chapter!

    Okay I'm done for now! I look forward for chapter 2!
