Raising dragons in Hollywood - Chapter 4
For the rest of the trip, Michael felt miserable.
Sammy was too absorbed in the conversation and while he was talking about his story ‘Kill the Dragon’, you could see that his face was beaming with joy.
“The warrior in armor was fearless, he plunged the treasured sword down to the hilt, like sitting on a slide, he held the hilt tightly, pulled down hard and slid down the dragon’s ridged back. Sliding his body rapidly, He used the sharp sword to cut through the dragon’s skin, when the blade collided with its squamas it created a harsh noise, and at the same time its miserable cry could be heard” He continued.
”…Are all humans that violent?” The poor little fire dragon was so scared he started sweating.
He couldn’t help but start trembling while trying his best to shrink his body in the corner of the back seat of the car so that Sammy doesn’t notice him.
But that caused Sammy to notice him even more.
This short young man with a cute round face could be so awful, couldn’t he?
Sammy even turned his head eagerly toward his direction to directly discuss with him. What broke Michael even more was…
During their conversation, when Sammy found the photo that Michael sent him on his mobile phone, he pointed at the photo of the dragon and said: “It may be hard for you to understand what I’m saying so I’ll just use this picture that you sent me. This picture suits the image I had in mind, the dragon is just how I imagined it. Come here and look at this part. The warrior would strike its sword into its neck in here, after killing the dragon you can then peel its skin to use as armor.
That… That was outrageous!
That was the evilest threat and the evilest person to the young dragon.
In the beginning, I wanted to show off my beautiful scales.
But how can I when it is used for brutal anatomical experiments.
Michael just closed his mouth in the midst of his bad mood, in fear that he might accidentally breathe out fire, which would reveal his identity.
He felt like crying inside, ‘Is it not enough to just kill dragons, you want to peel its skin too and use it as armor! Humans are merciless.’
In his heart, he felt miserable.
Sammy continued and said, ”Your picture looks so real. If they really exist then I can experience killing a dragon in reality”.
Slaying the dragon!
Dragons are so beautiful, so why do you want to kill them?
Michael really wanted to ask him out loud.
But he is afraid to do so because, at present, he’s going to be living with humans. That’s why he decided against it.
He pointed at his photo and with a crying voice, he said: “…fake fake fake, that picture is certainly fake! This isn’t a real dragon, I just found this picture how could it be a real dragon. Its scales are too beautiful obviously it’s fake (heart bleeds). That is a fake dragon believe me!”
Meanwhile, Dunbar finally understood why Disney rejected his brother’s idea.
Even if he loves his brother very much, this time he can’t help but be speechless: “Sammy, don’t tell me you handed in this idea?”
“Yep, what’s wrong?” Sammy tilted his head in confusion.
“Why are you even asking me, are you using your brain!? Think about it, if you own Disney, would you want to show children all these bloody and cruel animations about killing dragons? Which includes peeling, chopping heads, and squirting blood. It’s good that they haven’t fired you yet” Dunbar said while driving.
“How can killing a dragon be considered bloody and brutal?”
Sammy defended, “Dragons are bad things, killing them is like killing a fly or a mosquito, would you call someone cruel and bloodthirsty for killing a mosquito?”
Michael can’t take it anymore, so he whispered a protest: “But…the dragon isn’t bad”.
“Who told you that the dragon is not bad?”
Sammy immediately improved his tone and corrected it righteously: “Dragon’s are monsters. In the book, they are members of the evil camps, they plunder treasures, burn the forest, eat people, destroy towns, and steal princesses. They do all sorts of crimes that it’s hard to write all of them”.
Michael is totally embarrassed.
Why is it so different in the books? He felt great injustice.
No one is evil in nature.
They have never done anything evil!
It’s true that they like treasures, but everyone likes collecting treasure and then rob each other.The fire dragons have been discriminated for years because of burned forests. Whenever they see forest fires they will extinguish it. They always try their best to control themselves, but they’re fire dragons, whenever they sneeze they breath fire. The dragons are upset because they don’t know what to do.
There are even more misunderstandings about eating people. Whenever we can’t catch any prey we eat grass. People don’t look delicious, they are so skinny like a toothpick, it’s not enough to fill us. We dragons like to just stay at home, lie on bright treasures and sleep. There is no reason for us to go out and destroy the town, we get tired too, dragons are also made of flesh and blood.
Steal the Princess?What the hell is a princess?
We can’t take it, they are worse than dragons. Moreover, according to the legend from our ancestors, it is a terrible animal that can scream and cry. It is also extremely dangerous. The dragons that encounter this terrible animal will suffer an unfortunate experience because she will recruit a lot of humans, inexplicable hordes, and endless groups to bully the dragon!
