Part 3: Don’t Rock That Dragon

Part 3: Don’t Rock That Dragon
One by one, the young men tried. One by one each man failed. The young men could not so much as get their horses close enough to climb. One young man decided he would knock the dragon down from around the princess. The dragon lived in the top of a tree by the glassy hill. The suitor began to rock the tree when he heard:

Don’t Rock that Dragon in the tree on the mountain top
When the sound of the tremble–the mountain will shake
When the mountain shakes, the tree will fall
And down will come the dragon, your King
Your country and all.

Another young man started the climb and the dragon woke up, blew fire from his nostril and burned the hair off the horse and knocked the horseman to the ground. All of the suitors were frighten and ran away with the exception of one. One suitor noticed the dragon came out only after a troll that lived at the foot of the glassy hill came out to warn the dragon someone was getting near. This very smart suitor decided to have some of his friends tie the troll up so he could not warn the dragon. In this way, he would at least have a fighting chance to climb the glassy hill. The handsome, young, intelligent suitor did just that.

The Dragon would not leave the Kingdom, so he was given the responsibility of guarding the door where the little princess lived. The dragon started to grow and grow and he was not a little dragon anymore. The little girl who the king loved dearly started to grow and grow. The little girl turned into a beautiful princess. The little dragon turned into a big dragon who frighten all the people of Great Degrees.
The king decided he would have a competition among the great princes of the land to see who was worthy of his daughter. On the day of the competition, the King sat his daughter in a house at the top of a glass hill. The great King wanted a man he could call a son because his daughter was his only child. The great King wanted a strong man who would take over his kingdom at his death and was worthy to become King. A proclamation was sent out throughout the land that the king was sitting up a competition for any brave man to destroy the dragon, climb the glassy hill and win the love of his daughter. If he could accomplish all three great feats, the Kingdom and the hand of his daughter was his.
