“Magnificent. Frightening!” The words jumped past Timothy’s lips as he gazed in awe at the beast circling high over the Onyx palace and still loomed enormous against the hyper-blue sky.
“What manner of creature are you?” he pondered aloud as he studied it.
The beast aloft had the body of a mighty mare dressed in a silver coat with powerful equine legs tapering to golden hooves and adorned with the talons of a great bird of prey…. Upon its shoulders, perfectly balanced and fitted… was the head of a dragon as blue as sapphire with eyes the colour of rubies and horns as black as pitch….and the tail was long and coiling like a snake.
And last….It’s wings….A grand display rivaling those of a Gryphon…silver and blue with shades of amber…..
“What are you mighty beast?” Timothy asked wistfully.
“It is a version of a Qilin.” A squeaky little voice came from behind Timothy.
He turned casually and…..looking down he spied a creatures he might have called a ground hog….except that it stood on its hind legs and dressed very much like a medieval Cavalier.
Just as casually Timothy inquired….And what and whom might you be?”
The little Cavalier removed his hat in a sweep and bowed deeply….”I… my good sir am Eifion, keeper of the Qilin.”
“A stable boy.” Timothy teased playfully.
