The dragon emerged from the cave and flew to the old sage who sat on the edge of the cliff. “Where to now?” The dragon mind-whispered to him.
“Let’s go home.” He mind-whispered back to the dragon.
The beautiful dragon crouched, and the ragged sage climbed up onto her back. She flew up and into the far reaches of the Universe, to a tiny planet. On that planet was a huge, breathtaking castle.
Their work was done for now. They’d gone through Earth and sprinkled it with food and nutrients, rejuvenating the spirits, and now they were back home again.
The beautiful dragon shapechanged into a queen, and the old sage shapechanged into a handsome king. They kissed, “I’ve missed you.” Now they would rest in each other’s arms. They were the Keepers of the Universe.
