The loving dragons

Once upon a time there lived a girl called Anastasia. She was playing in the woods when she realised that she was lost.
She became afraid and yelled “Help!” until she was out of breath. She stayed stationary, terrified that she would die. She found herself face to face with a giant and he scooped her with his giant claws.
He said in a shrieking voice, “You will cook for me.”
Anastasia started crying, fearful of her gloomy fate. For five months she worked endlessly for Bobo (the giant), until one day she saw a dragon called Saphira and begged him to rescue her. Saphira put her on his back and took her to Vardenan, an ancient land where dwarves lived and dragons hatched. It was ruled by a nice queen named Nucuda.
That was where Anastasia found her dream place and lived there happily ever after amongst the loving dragons.
