OK, here we go! This first chapter is just an introduction, no action yet!
[glow=red,2,300]Chapter 1: Different[/glow]
PD had always been different. He kept to his studies and achieved straight a's. He had no interest in athletics or clubs. As a matter of fact, he didnt really have much of a social life. He preferred to eat in classrooms with teachers. Even when people invited him to sit at a table, he would make excuses. Everybody thought PD was a very strange person.
But none of them knew just how different he was. You see, PD had learned on his 13th birthday that he was a dragon. He could transform into one at any time. Even among dragons, he was considered different. He was a polydactyl, meaning that he had seven claws on each paw rather than five. He was doomed to be different forever...
As if this wasn't enough of a shock, he also learned that he was responsible for protecting the magical underworld of Arizona.
For the most part, PD kept his dragon identity a secret. He only thought about it when there was work to be done in the magical community. However, PD was about to be taken on the ride of his life, in both human and dragon form!

[glow=red,2,300]Chapter 2: A Venomous Threat[/glow]
It had been a normal day at school. PD was walking home as usual. Every afternoon, PD was to report to his older brother, who was his dragon master. Although his brother, David, had no magical powers of his own, he knew a great deal about the magical community. He knew so much, in fact, that he was granted an honorary position as PD’s master.
As PD opened the front door, he saw David waiting for him in the hall.
“Hey, Dave. What’s up?”
David responded with a frown. “I’m afraid I have some bad news,” he said.
PD’s eyes widened. Anytime David said these words, it meant a magical disaster was occurring in Arizona. It also meant the full concentration of PD’s efforts. Last time there was bad news, Graverobber was looting the Tombstone Chapter of the Rest of Interskeletal Parts Association (RIP). He was caught in the end, but PD was forced to miss a whole week of school.
“What is it this time?”
“The Gila Monsters of the Salt River are in great peril. They have been receiving anonymous threats. They have requested your protection and help in the matter.”
PD sighed. “What kind of threats?”
“They received a message via RattleGraph (Morse code submitted through the tail of a rattlesnake) a few days ago. The message warned the Gila Monsters to either give up 100 pints of their deadly venom or be mass executed. I take it you can guess who sent the message.”
Indeed he could. This type of threat could only come from one source, the Huntsclan. Dragon guardians around the world had problems with them. The Huntsclan was an international organization, made up of thousands of members. Their main purpose was to slay magical creatures. Though PD himself never had an encounter with them, he heard stories from other dragons of their wicked ways.
PD nodded in acknowledgement. Without further ado, he transformed into a dragon, and flew out the door towards his destination, the dry bed of the Salt River.
