The mystery of Tolimocho


One lovely and extraordinary day in Tolimocho, all the people lived happily, sun bathing, swimming in the river and eating roast beef and wine in THE SWORD AND SHIELD. However not everyone was having fun because there was one little girl called Alvar, who was asleep in her straw bed, dreaming that she was being gobbled up by a fierce dragon. As she got munched on, that was what was happening outside! Everyone was being eaten by a flock of big, green, hungry dragons.

When Alvar woke up, she was confused because the town of Tolimocho isn’t usually quiet, but it was. As Alvar stepped outside she nearly collapsed. Everyone had disappeared! Even the animals! As she walked to her favourite place, the river Thatchi, she slumped on the bank and began to cry. Alvar ran to the tents and looked inside each and every one of them but not one had any living thing in it. Suddenly, Alvar heard the church bells ringing for 12 O’ clock, so she headed to the church.

“This is really scary! Where did everyone go?” Alvar questioned herself. “What am I suppose too do now without my family?”

Just then, Alvar heard a scream! What was it? Who screamed? It came from the vegetable shop so that’s the way Alvar went. To her surprise it was her best friend, Burden.

“I saw a dragon and he took my family,” panicked Burden.” Don’t worry I woke up and my whole village

was gone,” explained Alvar. So, they both set off together to investigate the mystery. Just then they saw a massive cave.

    They both ran towards it and huddled up together and soon they were both in a deep sleep.

    “Alvar…Alvar! Wake up!”
    “Huh, what the…
    “Hey Alvar, look at that!” and, right there in front of them was a little, baby dragon but this time it was red.
    “Alvar, we have to kill it,” Burden whispered.
    “Wait, it’s a baby so maybe we could domesticate it.”
    “Are you stupid Alvar, you can’t domesticate a…oh wow Alvar you are the greatest, but how on earth are we going to tame it?
    “Probably with food!”

    “Oh.” Burden whispered. Alvar picked it up and carried it over to her house and put it on the windowsill.
    Alvar got an anchovy and put it down near the little dragon. The dragon slurped it up in one big gulp, hopped onto Alvar’s shoulder and Alvar and Burden went to the barn to have a snooze on the straw. In the morning there first thought was the dragon.
    “Hey Burden do you think this dragon is good because it is red? “
    “Perhaps,” shrugged Burden. That morning all they did was teach the little thing how to fly and speak.
