Percy and Kevin had been riding on horse back again heading to the Dragon Knights Castle. Percy was still disliking the idea of riding on a horse. “I thought the long hours on a snow traveler was hard a year ago but horse riding is just the pits Kevin. I guess a life time of doing this and you get used to feeling sore.” Kevin just laughed to himself adjusting his helmet, “Oh Percy you’re just from a different culture. The idea of being in the snow for the years you did spent would be too hard for me. Same with being a knight to you. See, the castle is just there. It is surprising that both castle are close by,” he replied. However when the draw bridges arose to greet them there was a very strange visitor at the Dragon Knight’s Castle. A police officer from the city was there with a couple of the knights talking to them about something. Kevin climbed off his horse and came up to the police officer, “Hello and who are you and how did you get here?” The officer tipped his hat to him and smiled, “My name is called Slick. I’m a old friend of Percy and I noticed that you are forming a group to help combat this Zare character. I was hoping I could help however I might have discovered something,” he said.
Percy came up to Slick and was surprised to see him, Slick! What are you doing here. Kevin, this is a friend of mine who helped me on a investigation or two when well my family were time travelers. We haven’t seen each other for three years or so. What brings you here Slick?” he asked him. “I have heard some news from the Pirate islands. There seems to be a large movements by the Solider Imperials to arrest some of your pirate friends. However a tip off from a sailor who discover two small islands that he discovered a strange green statue of a dragon. that was shining a light around the island. I’m wondering if you all know what that is. It’s quite in the magic department what it’s doing,” Slick explained. Kevin looked surprised by the news and looked excited and concerned at the same time. “That must be where Wizard’s dragon has been kept. Wizard lost his dragon when Zare turned it to stone. But over the years Echo the Dragon went missing and we couldn’t find him again. Now he’s been taken somewhere to where the pirates roam. We have to go there and see where Echo is and free him. Wizard has the ability to do that. He’s been working on his magic in order to break the spell. I’m just worried Echo’s signal will also catch Zare’s eye too.” Percy and Slick understood the dangerous nature of the problem. “If Wizard can get King Lion on board soon than we can sort out this issue. Having a dragon on our side would be very handy to have,” Percy said thinking out loud. Kevin turned to Slick who was dressed neatly in his uniform, “How did you get here so quickly?’ “Oh I took my police motorbike. The car wouldn’t have made some of those hills and places you have around here. But I got here in the end.”
The three of them decided it was best to wait at the Dragon Knights castle until Wizard returned with or without King Lion.
