The Girl And The Sword Of Wisdom


Pattern links are located at the bottom of this story

The Sword In Stone,
Ari the Dragon and the Girl were flying around playing with the clouds one day when the Girl spotted something glittering on the ground. She told her Dragon to bring her closer to see what it was.
The Dragon landed right beside it and they could clearly see now what it was. There before them was a handle of a sword that was stuck inside a large stone. The sunlight  was dancing on the golden parts of the handle making it sparkle. Oh, this was very exciting! But why? Why was this here.

"Oh my!" said the girl, "It's so beautiful! But why is it stuck inside that large stone?"

Before the Dragon could offer his thoughts and before she could take a closer look at it  that Boy Knight suddenly appeared again. He's always showing up at the wrong time. The Girl didn't know that the Boy had too seen something glittering in the sun while he was walking through the forest and came to get a closer look.

"STOP!" yelled the Boy Knight, never taking his eyes of this glorious sword sticking up out of the stone  "That's mine! I uh.. I.. I  lost my sword, and there it is. Yes. That's my sword."

 The Girl was not convinced, in fact she giggled. "You lost your sword and there it is? lol You lost your sword inside a big stone, did you. I don't think that's the real story, is it Knight?" The Boy didn't answer but the Dragon shook his head no, as if

Somebody To Save ~ Next pattern release



The Little Boy Knight was wandering around the forest wishing he had somebody to save. He had just walked around a bend in the trail when he saw her..
OH my! She was the most beautiful girl he had ever saw!
She has hair as black as a raven. Her crown sparkled in the sun. There was something about her that made her extra beautiful...look at that dress.. she's beautiful! Yes! I will save her in her time of need. I will fight for her to the death!
Okay, okay.. he did think the same thing when he saw that other girl last year but her dragon was really annoying.
Back to the story.
But THIS girl! This girl was the most beautiful girl he had..... What the... ?? Is that a dragon? Walking a bit further he could see everything more clearly now.
Nooooooo! What is it with these girls and dragons!!!
The little girl turned around and stared that boy right in the eye. It was like she heard all his thoughts.
"Yes, it is a dragon! Her name is Sairina. She sparkles in the sun just like my crown. You stay away from my dragon, Knight! I don't need you to save me!"
With that said the girl and her magical, sparkly dragon walked down to the river leaving that poor boy standing there with his sword and shield and nobody to save..
Poor guy, keep trying. One day you will find somebody to save!

I give them for free so that everyone, regardless of financial situation, can enjoy them. My hope is that those who can afford to buy a pattern will give a donation. This goes towards supplies and my time. Thank you!
