A Picture Story from Portrait of Words
He was told by the old ones that to get this power he would have to go to a far away land
and talk to the lonely old oracle who had existed since time began, or perhaps before.
Once there he needed to ask the oracle where the Castle of Power was located.
So the little dragon went off to find the oracle. It took him two years , seven months and three days but he found the far away land , and the lonely old oracle.
The oracle not only told him where the Castle of Power could be located but where the brick had to be removed so that the gate would open up.
Then he was given the password to get by the bone crushing upside down man.
So our little dragon went to the Castle of Power, pulled, the brick, said the password and reached the tattoed horses.
As the Oracle had instructed he went to the blue horse and asked for one wish. The blue horse gave him this riddle:
What can you give away and still keep for yourself?
The little dragon though for a moment and then said:
" My word"
The blue horse then granted him one wish.
He wished that he and ll dragons would have the power to shift shapes.
This is why to this day dragons are shape shifters.
