Title: The Viper https://www.wattpad.com/story/213387987-the-viper-open-novella-contest
Prompt Number: 24
Blurb (Long blurb, sorry):Once upon a time. . .
There lived a kingdom in the midst of a war. As troops were slain mercilessly, the king had turned to the gods and prayed for a blessing. Thus, the dragon goddess, Tiamat, answered. She lent her hand to the kingdom in return for a hundred souls to become her offspring. The king, in a frenzy, accepted her offer without acknowledging the weight of his decision.
When the kingdom had been victorious, the king had decided to go back on his word. The cost would have been one-hundred men too many, he refused to take that many lives.
Furious, Tiamat swore upon the king that when she would have enough power, she would cause such devastation among him that the king’s legacy would be nothing but that of a story.
Her power was depleted, but her fury was unlimited.
It took the vengeful goddess a thousand years to gather the strength to bestow her child into the world. This child would carry the soul of a dragon that would slowly lose its sanity until it causes chaos among the world; the world the king had sworn to protect.
There would be only one way to stop the progression of the mania before the world plummets into disarray. Yet, that is only for the dragon to know and the world to ponder.
Little does anyone know, the dragon has already arrived and her name is Scarlett Everest.
