Of Dragons and Hunters

Aria

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.

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...

Schaelz: I was intrigued from the second I started reading, and it kept my interest the whole way through. Chelsea has a way with words that will enchant you until the very end.

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...
