Chapter two of the new story

Chapter Two

I swam swiftly towards the surface after the dragon. If we got away from me.... let's just say that I didn't want to lose my head. Yeah. It's serious.

"Gideon's going to kill me," I thought to myself as I swam as fast as I could through the water towards the dragon. Which was, I admit, pretty fast, considering that I was always swimming to keep my strength up. Not only that, but I ran five miles each morning and did a number of sit-ups and such to keep in good shape.

I reached for the dragon and... caught it. I quickly stuffed the dragon in my pouch and started back down towards the portal. I hadn't gone far when an arrow flew through the water right next to me. Starting, I nearly let go of the dragon.

It squirmed and I thrust it inside my pouch, diving through the portal. I felt the rush of wind, water dripping off me and flying in a thousand directions. The lights were too bright for my eyes and I screwed them shut.

"Well, well, well, that was quite interesting," came the sarcastic voice.

I opened my eyes to see the dark curly-haired dreamy-eyed boy who stood in front of me, his arms crossed and a glare on his face.

"What?" I was sopping wet, the water dripping in a huge puddle around me. "I got the dragon eggs, right?" I handed them towards him.

He nodded. "Good. Now go change."

I glared and sulkily went off to do as I was told.
