Acorin is a 14 year old minor noble daughter with 7 older brothers. The oldest of whome went missing 3 months ago in the eastern mountains, while seeking the Dragon Vakai. When Acorin is told she is to be married in 6 months, she is having none of it. So, in the night, she takes a sword, her brothers clothes, a horse... and goes. Thee hours later she is rather sure she probably should have brought at least a loaf of bread with her, and not entierly sure which direction to go in. Having already been persuied by rather suspicious looking men on horseback and fallen off her horse twice, things are not going well. Acorin's misadventures have only just begun.... Following the trail of her missing brother, she had certainly not expected to follow his path into a dragon's nest. She had not expected a dragon within to rub itself against her legs and purr when she scratched it's back. And she had certainly not expected it to demand "Don't stop," when she'd gone to leave. But there are times when you just can't complain. My cat kindly posed for the dragon. Photoshopgraphics tablet.
