The Siege of Rome

I was nearly breathless when it happened. I watched from my window as a large shadow covered the sky. If you concentrate closely, the shadow appeared to be made up of little black dots and some other colors. I stood by the window, me and my ma and my sister and my brother and my grandpa and my papa. Everything went silent and the electricity went out. I leaned over the balcony to see the buildings on the Ponte Vecchio and everywhere else. The crowd were gazing at the sky and the traffic of cars had came to a full stop. Nothing worked. Slowly, the moon became visible only slightly, and out of nowhere the shadow burst into a million flying bugs like an erratic swarm of hell. It was then the revelation became clear. One of the ‘bugs’ that came at me was a dragon! I ran inside and shut the patio door but the ferocious dragon broke through the glass. This one had no arms but dangerous claws for gripping.

I Have Gifts for you all

I bet you are wondering, “WHY HAS SHE NOT RELEASED UPDATE 7/8?????” I will tell you.

Never the Tether


Never in all my realms have I seen such things
Never, in all my days have I seen such defilement of the masses
I so yearn to change the world
How can a person so small with no recognition change her world?
She wants them to know

She only wishes to do good
She only wishes to help the world along
It is her only wish
And may that wish rest in peace
Riposa in pace
Riposa in pace
il mio drago, riposa in pace
