Tavern Disaster

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Tavern Disaster The moon hung high in the black mid-night sky, the stars shinning bright like streetlights. There was a soft wind blowing peacefully from the forest to the small tavern. It was a quiet tavern, not many people came as it was out in the middle of nowhere. It's only surroundings for miles were a huge forest. It contained a multitude of creatures including wolves, unicorns and the odd centaur or two. But on this very night, there was another creature in the forest, one that shouldn't be there at all... Inside the tavern it was more or less empty as usual. The fireplace at the far end of the room had a shelf of various things that customers had given the tavern, for its hospitality and warm welcoming. The fire itself was burning brightly, consuming log after log to keep itself alight. Directly across from the fire was the thing that made the tavern a tavern. Without it, it would be nothing more than a room full of tables and chairs; this was the bar. It was full of near enough every kind of drink that you could imagine, from just plain water to champagne. ...read more.

Middle

Well the answer to that is no. He thought that if he left it there then maybe the maid would bring it over to him and he could talk to her some more. He liked her a lot, even though he tried so show no sign of it what so ever. Surely enough, his plan did work, believe it or not. She took the tankard, not so full anymore as he had drunk some out, over to Draco. Then, she pulled up another chair and sat down on it next to the elf. Draco took the tankard away from her softly and placed it down on the table that they were sitting around. "I'm sorry about that sir, I didn't mean to.... oh what am I doing?" she asked herself. "You don't want me around you now after that. I'll go and leave you in peace." She went for stand up, but the elf grasped her arm gently. "No, please don't go. I understand why you were upset. It was wrong of me to ask you. If anything, it should be I that goes." The serving wench went for sit down, but before she could there was a deafening roar which shook the whole of the tavern. ...read more.

Conclusion

There was one thing that the elf hadn't thought about though. Where was the dragon to land? It collapsed face forward, falling straight at Draco. The elf knew he wouldn't be able to get out of this one. He knew that his time had come. He was going to die, and it didn't really bother him. In someway he was actually relieved. After all the suffering he had caused to others and the fact that he felt it was his fault that the maid had died, he didn't mind dying. It was as though his entire life was flashing before him. He could remember every murder he ever committed. Then, with a loud thud, the dragon landed face first on top of the elf. The crushed elf, slayed dragon and burnt barmaid were all that was left on that particular night. The forest had caught fire from the burning tavern. Animal's habitats had been destroyed. Animals themselves were burnt alive. Trees and plants were nothing but piles of ashes, the odd few still standing, barely. And the tavern...Well, that was gone within a matter of minutes. As soon as the alcohol behind the bar had caught fire, the whole tavern blew up. Glass amongst other things shattered everywhere around the area. No one could have survived, or could they...
