In the story I made up with my daughter there is a young girl who is playing outside when she hears a rustling in the bushes next to her, as she looks closer she sees this beautiful dragon emerge with a long body and tail. They both stare at each other in amazement and then the dragon says, “Can you see me? Only MY Rider can truly see me.” The young girl tells the dragon “I can see you” they then road through the skies for the rest of the afternoon. When her mom looked out the window she only saw her playing with a stick but for the girl she saw her dragon.
