The last dragon is dying. She knows it. And she is almost glad: her life has been long, sad, and full of suffering. She is hated, hunted and harassed wherever she goes. And she wonders: what is the point of living when no one wants you to live?
So when she is discovered yet again, she does not bother trying to flee. Wounded and despairing, she waits for her death at the hands of human villagers with their pitchforks and prejudice. Following her would-be destroyers, however, is a strange, solitary young soul who is also unloved, and who wishes for more than his life has allotted to him.
'The Dragon's Boy' is a short fairytale about the last dragon in the world, an orphan named Jack, and faithful, persistent love.
