Kara looked very angry. 'I thought King Einon was cruel. But this knight is worse,' she said to the old man. 'Don't give him our money.'

Bowen looked hard at Kara and said to the old man, 'All right. Don't give me any money. But why don't you give the dragon

one of the village's lovely young women? Then he'll go away.' The other men came out of their houses and listened to

Bowen. Then they all looked at Kara. 'Yes, give her to the dragon,'

they shouted.

'Who's that girl?' asked Draco.

'The villagers want you to have her. Then you'll go away,'

answered Bowen.

'That's stupid! Who gave them that idea?' Draco laughed.

'I don't know,' Bowen said quietly. 'What are you waiting for?

Quickly. Go and eat her!'

'Oh, please!' said Draco. Т feel ill.Yech!'

'But you ate Sir Eglamore. I saw him when I was in your mouth,' said Bowen. 'Think of something. Quickly!'

Draco put out his arms and pulled Kara away from the men in the village. Then he flew away with her into the sky. Everybody shouted and laughed. They were very happy.

'Thank you, Knight. Thank you. Now we'll never see Kara or the dragon again!'


^ Chapter 9 Ready for Battle


'That's lovely, Draco.' Kara sat in the hot sun with a smile on her face. Draco sat next to her and sang his sad, strange song. 'And you're a lovely dragon. They're not all as kind as you are,' said Kara. She felt warm and happy.

'How many dragons do you know then?' Draco asked.

'You're the first,' answered Kara. 'But you're funny. You don't eat young women — you sing to them! Do you do anything

dangerous?'

'No,' said Draco. 'When people are kind to me, I never hurt

them.'

'Then why did you come to my village?' asked Kara.


'Good question!' said somebody behind them. It was Bowen. 'You remember Kara's village, Draco. Why did you go there?'

Kara looked angrily at Bowen. 'Go away, Knight,' she shouted. 'You wanted this dragon to eat me! 'Then she got up and tried to fight Bowen.


They fell into the river and Bowen shouted out, 'Help! Draco, why didn't you eat her?'

Draco smiled and answered, 'Kara, this is Sir Bowen. He won't hurt you. Bowen meet Kara.'

Kara and Bowen stopped fighting and got out of the river. But before they could say anything, they heard the sound of horses. Draco heard them too and quickly jumped into the water.

Einon, Brok and the king's other knights came out of the

trees. Bowen ran in front of Kara — he didn't want them to see her. Kara looked at Bowen and suddenly remembered his face. 'He helped my father,' she thought. 'When I was younger and Einon tried to burn out his eyes the first time. He was a good Knight of the Old Code then. Why is he different now?' But she didn't have time to think about that. Einon sat above her on his horse. He looked down at the girl and the knight.

'Ah, my old teacher!' he said cruelly. 'And you've got my woman. I lost her. But here she is!'

'I don't think she's your woman, King Einon. She doesn't want to come with you,' answered Bowen.

'Oh, I'm sorry, but I'm not asking her. I'm telling her. She has to come,' shouted Einon.

'My sword says she doesn't have to,' said Bowen, and he pulled out his sword.

Einon smiled and pulled out his sword too. Then the teacher and his student started to fight. They fell down but quickly stood up again in the river. They looked strong and dangerous with their swords in their hands. But Einon was younger and faster.

Fight me, Bowen’, he called. ‘You’re a knight of the Old Code. But nobody remembers the Old Code now. You're dead!'

His words made Bowen angrier. 'You remember the Old Code! It's your Code too, you know,' he shouted.

'Never! It was never my Code,' Einon shouted back.

'Yes, it was. You repeated the words of the Old Code to the dragon in the mountain,' said Bowen.

'I only said those words because you wanted to hear them,' laughed Einon. 'And I wanted to live. You taught me to fight and you taught me well, Old Knight! 'Then Einon brought his sword down hard on Bowen's arm. The knight fell down in the water.

But before Einon could kill Bowen, Draco came out of the river opposite him. The Great Dragon stood above the king and looked down at him with his angry, yellow eyes. Then Draco put up his arms, and Einon saw the red light on his heart. The king felt very afraid. He climbed out of the river fast and jumped on to his horse. Kara, Bowen and Draco watched him, and Einon rode away.

Kara helped Bowen out of the river. She sat near him on the ground and washed his arm. 'You're a very strong fighter,' she said. 'Will you help the men in my village to fight Einon and his knights?'

'You won't win,' said Bowen. 'Einon will kill you.'

Kara looked at him angrily, then stood up. 'Will you fight with us, Draco?' she asked the dragon.

Draco looked at her sadly. 'For thousands of years dragons helped people. There was one dragon — the greatest dragon in the world. He told the other dragons to help the people in this country. Can you see that star up there? When the old dragon died that star was born. And after that, when other dragons died, new stars were born in the night sky. But then men stopped listening to the dragons. I wanted to do one wonderful thing for the people in this country. I wanted to be a star in the sky too. But I made a bad mistake. I helped to make the world a worse place

Bowen listened to the dragon's sad words. 'It was you!' he suddenly shouted. 'You're the dragon in the mountain. King Einon has half your heart!'

'Yes,' said Draco quietly. 'Einon will only die when I die. He's got half my heart. I wanted to help him. I wanted him to be good. But my heart didn't change him. I was stupid!'

'No you weren't,' said Bowen kindly. 'I wanted to help Einon too. I wanted to teach him the Old Code. But I couldn't.'

Then Draco turned to Kara. 'Yes, I'll fight Einon with you Kara,' he said. 'I'd like to help you. Come with us, Bowen.'

The knight thought for a minute. Then he stood up, and they all started to walk back to Kara's village.


When they arrived there, Kara asked the villagers to help her. She wanted them to fight Einon and kill him. But the men were angry and afraid. They shouted at her and began to hit her again.

Suddenly somebody said,'Well, I'm going to fight Einon.'The men looked round. There, on his horse in the morning sun, was Sir Bowen. He had fire in his eyes and a smile on his face.

'Only you, Knight?' shouted the men.

'And Draco,' said Bowen. From behind a bridge Draco flew down to the village. The men looked at Bowen and then at Draco.

One of them shouted, 'I'm going to fight too. I want to fight Einon with this knight and the dragon.'

The other villagers listened and then they started to shout too, 'Kill Einon! Kill the cruel king! We want to fight!'


For weeks everybody in the village got ready for the battle. On the last night the villagers gave Bowen a beautiful new sword. It shone in the firelight. On it was a picture of Draco - the dragon looked wonderful. Bowen couldn't say anything. He stood in the middle of the village and looked at the men round him. Then he looked at Draco and Kara and saw the love in his friends' eyes.

'You're ready for battle tomorrow,' he said to everybody. 'And you're ready to win. To win back your country. And the greatest dragon in the world is going to help you!
