Understanding the Dragon (story)

All these signs
Culminate.

The Wizard and Warrior,
King and Queen,
And the Lover

Return once audience is requested.

With them they bring fire and wrath, roasting Subject on its own grill. Neglect was the order of the day, and for that: “You must pay with answers and deeds”.

After many days of deliberating, eventually the fire dims, the ashes kindle, and conversation begins.

Slowly but surely, the order of the day continues for ‘under-standing’ to include understanding.

Through trials and tribulations, walls, and reclamation, friendship is born. Over time a mutual respect grows into the pillar that holds this world up on which we stand today.

With this structure born, the 4 corners of the world are held strong; reinforced with the iron of compassion and the steel of humility.

Each of the 4 corners are guarded by the Stewards of Power, the faces of energy. Here the Stewards in all their knowledge and wisdom gift and direct the energies of the kingdom in order to maintain balance and prosperity for those who would indulge in the space and the freedom of the kingdom of light.

However one day as with any empire, the pillar crumbles; trust fades.
It is here on this day that the Dragon, from deep within its cave, emerges in companionship with the Stewards of the 4 corners of light: the Wizard, The Warrior, King, and Queen, and the Lover, brewing and casting spells of madness.

Return with fire, the dragon lends them it’s form in exchange for the power that within. In the darkness together they now brew deeds of evil that dim the light of this world, bringing forth those long nights of restless slumber with little respite.

Few call for audience with these demons, in fear of the fire which these Stewards of Power wield and lash and breathe with all the splendour of creature-hood

Continuing in darkness and cold it would seem. Many say the fire is too hot, too bright, for any one person to bare alone…

These are those who run. Only they should ask… where is the Dragon now?
