I Am A Dragon

I am as dragon. I think like a dragon. I sleep like a dragon. I dream like a dragon. When I can, I fly like a dragon.

I have not flown in over a thousand years. This is because I am asleep. In a cave somewhere deep in the earth. I've been sleeping so long, that I am now half buried under stones and debris due to a cave in some five hundred years ago.

I think I am dying. My breathing is slow even for a sleeping dragon. The symbiotic creatures that take care of me can not get to more than half of my body.

There is as girl (you would probably think of her as a femme d'une certaine age) who sometimes flies with me in my dreams. She understands my problem, but...I don't know if there is anything she can do to help. I am grateful that she wants to try.

There is more, but I am too tired to try to remember it now. I am going to sleep now.

PSSSSSTTTT!!! Wake up, you sleepy head dragon! I'm awake, I'm up!<br />
<br />
You need to move your "TALE" !!! <br />
<br />
Here, let me throw a couple stones at your nose to get you to open your eyes a bit. I crawled in through this tiny crack over here, I can't make it all the way, but close enough so you can hear my voice. Follow the sound from where my voice is coming from. That's the direction you need to move towards in order to escape from this damp cave you're in. It's time to get that tale of yours moving. That tale you are turning into a book. Remember? The people wait impatiently! Your readers wait impatiently! We have all slept long enough. We all want to wake up now.<br />
<br />
I'll just leave this BBQ chicken scented air freshener right here, so that might cause enough distraction and make your hunger return enough to get out of this cave. They say you can get a hungry dragon to do anything!<br />
<br />
Wake up and smell the chicken!

So you are the calm, cool and uncollected type of dragon!<br />
<br />
I'm certain the cave you are in is quite toxic. Can you move at all? If you could get your tail to knock those stones around in there around. You need to muster your power into your tail to force the opening. Once that is done, the air will remix and your brain will start to activate those dormant sleeper cells that have you imprisoned in this suspended state.<br />
<br />
I hope you can get this message before you fall back down the well.

I can't be collected. I might be freed. It will be very hard to find me. I don't know where I am, anymore, so I can't help with that. I don't even remember how I got here. I've got wicked bed sores from not being able to turn for centuries. One of my wings is completely broken. I would say I need assistance. Even my symbionts seem to be dying. Or else they are bored or aren't doing a very good job. Maybe I burned them up, although I don't see how I could. I can only generate smoke these days.<br />
<br />
I can live a long time like this, but I can tell my thinking is going. I am lucid for only a few days every century. I will try to keep contact, but I don't know how much I can maintain. I am hungry and the little pool that collected the water dripping down the walls does not hold much water any more. Ohhh. My eyes fall closed again.

I have a large dragon collection in my home that I dearly love.<br />
<br />
Would you like to be collected?<br />
<br />
There would be many dragon friends here to get to know and share dragon stories with.<br />
<br />
I sense the problem about that particular cave you are sleeping in has toxic molds and chemicals that subdue a dragons life force. Either way, you need to get out from that cave as quickly as possible. Do you need assistance?
