A new dawn appeared on the sky above our land. For some, it was just another day, but not for me and few others. It was our first day that we'll go through as a new generation of dragon hunters.
To be honest, I didn't expect much of it. Unlike my father, mother and sisters, I wasn't excited for my first day as a dragon hunter, opposite, I didn't care about it at all. It seemed like others were more excited about it than me.
I never slept a lot during the night. I would usually peek through the window until I saw the first signs of dawn. Last night, I slept until I heard the first songs of the birds and then woke up to see the today's dawn. Sky was changing it's colours. First the pitch black colour that looked like it could swallow the entire land. As it slowly faded, the weird shade of blue came up and the stars slowly started to disappear. The fading continued to the lightest shades of blue when I finally spotted the slight orange light on the horizon. Sun was coming out and the day of my first hunt officially started.
As I saw the Sun coming out in its full shape, I thought about my name, Aria. My parents told me it meant 'intelligence of an eagle'. Well, if that intelligence saves me from getting killed between the teeth or claws of a dragon, then I got the right name after all.
