I am having a lot of fun writing my second adventure for Princess Alexia and her friends. I am getting to research more about dragons, knights, trolls, gnomes, moles, and fairies.
Titus, Princess Alexia’s friend, is a dragon who dresses and speaks as a pirate. He lives in the forest and to this date, has not seen the ocean. He flies and breathes fire when he feels the need too. He is also finding himself in all sorts of trouble.
So without further ado, here is the rough draft of the beginning of Princess Alexia: The Legend of the Trolls.
Princess Alexia: The Legend of the Trolls
It was a dark and stormy night when the gnomes surrounded the tiny troll village set at the base of the mountain and on the edge of the forest. The gnomes stood at an imposing height of six feet with a bulky frame and a slight arch in their back. Beady black eyes peered into the night and their shaved head presented a frightful appearance.
The clouds moved in front of the moon blocking what little light there was. The leader gave the signal, a short whistle three times, and, as one, they attacked. In the midst of heavy fighting, the heavens opened and raindrops pelted the ground as the wind whipped around them.
Thunder boomed and drowned the noise of the battle as the gnomes passed through the outer barrier and went into the castle yard. A servant of the King and Queen ran into their bedchamber ushering them into a secret passage, but not before the Queen cried out for their deaf daughter, Rasha. The servant assured them that he would gather the girl and be right behind them.
Unbeknownst to the panicked trio, a gnome had reached her room, threw her over his shoulder and carried her off to Misty Hollow Swamp.
