“Go on! We gave you the money, didn’t we?’ Jayden and Kayleigh pushed Ria up against the wall. ‘We want this party to go with a bang. You’d better get them – or else!’
In that moment, the decision had been very easy to make. If Ria did what they asked, they would leave her alone, for once. But now she stood facing the shop, clutching the envelope of notes in her hand, she was no longer so sure.
“PROFESSOR PEPPER’S FIREWORK FACTORY” read a faded sign above the door. Then a smaller sign below announced:
No Children or Animals allowed!
The windows were caked with dust, and it looked dark and deserted beyond. She looked up and down the quiet side street near the estate where she lived. Was the shop even open?
There was only one way to find out.
Ria pushed the door open, which dragged across the old floorboards. ‘Hello’? she said, her voice echoing. It sounded like she was in an empty warehouse, not a shop. No-one replied and no light came on. At first there was only darkness and silence in reply.
Then, in the distant gloom, a light began to appear. More of a spark than a light, rising out of the shadows, that began to fizz and burn, growing and growing, until with her heart in her mouth, Ria realised that it was a .........

Ria realized it was.... . A fire breathing Dragon....... Wait a minute is this for real... Because according to Mr Google these are extinct. As she was busy thinking, this animal was giving out fire balls for no reason at all, and she was struck there. Now she understood the signboard outside... No children and animals allowed. She ran towards the first shelter she got... A broken table and held her breath.. Why on earth would a fireworks factory have a dragon!!!
The room was as hot as a furnace. Ria’s head was full of questions. Why it here? What use is it in a fire work facture? Why is Mr Google wrong? She could smell burning and the roaring flames felt like they were melting her face. Her ears were overwhelmed with the pounding of her heart, the roaring of the flame, the footsteps and screaming of Jayden and Kayliegh as they ran away into the night. Ria wanted to run but her legs were stuck to the floor with fear.

Soaring through the air, her head whirled. She asked herself what was going on. Fighting for control, she flew through empty space. But suddenly, she was scooped back up by the dragons’ curled talons. It began to climb higher and higher into the cloud above. The creature began to spiral through the air, towards a jagged mountain in the far distance. Her breath had begun to form clouds in the air around her, as the dragon sped towards a large hole in the rock.
She sees a scary, glooming, menacing griffin. Its fangs were dripping with blood, its mouth drooping with gloopy saliva. As round as saucers, its malicious red eyes gazed right through her. Ria’s heart skipped a beat as the dragon noticed the griffin enter his cave, and suddenly charged towards it like a bull. The eggs (like a whimpering dog) were begging for their lives. Ria thought this could be her opportunity to escape until she heard a crack from the eggs. She ran anyway; it was too late. They spotted her.

The figure slowly trudged towards her. His piercing green eyes glared into the soul of Ria, "Who are you?" she whispered,to herself but some how he managed to hear. "Why have you brought me here?".He stalked towards her and she backed away.

There was a deadly silence, all that could be heard was the howling wind in the distance. All of a sudden, something hit her on the back of the head, she turned around to see nothing. What was it? What was this weird thing that had just hit her on the back of the head? Was someone trying to kill her? Was there something she didn't know about? What was it? It must have been nothing so she turned around to see. Wait? What? Why was the man on the floor, not a single gasp of air coming out of his mouth? Blood was dripping from somewhere above, she looked up to see the dragon, the blood of the man pouring out of his mouth. It had saved her. It swooped down to take her home. Wow, it was a wonderful sight, Ria on her saviors back flying home to safety. But wait... Did you really think that it was a happy ending? Suddenly, she let go of the dragons back, distracted by the views from up high. She slipped further from the dragons back until she found herself plummeting down towards the earth...
