The Dragon Picture

A short story I wrote initially for AP English - given the vague prompts of telling a story through an animal's point of view or re-writing a myth of sorts, I decided to do a bit of both. What follows is a piece that uses the classic image of the solitary hero venturing forth to confront an evil beast to talk about the nature of mankind's perceptions of evil as a whole, and so-on and so-forth.

It's a rather quick read with a couple of mythological references, though they aren't vital to the understanding of the piece by any means. Oh, and it might be a wee bit dark, all in all.

Feedback is much appreciated! Many thanks!
