He felt cold. He always would feel cold now.
...climb the mountain, and talk to the dragon again. This first starless night stared back at the boy in the quiet town.
...memory has singed them into his mind. He imagined he could see them he closed his eyes, but open, the sky was black. He boy longed to...
He remembered the stars, that he had seen so recently, just before the dawn took them away. But there were no stars in the sky where...
His fresh garlands tilted back and his face turned up, peering at the dark sky. There was quiet, and the night was lightless. He remembered.
As the town's revelry calmed down the sun sank. As the last light dwindled the town grew quiet. The boy looked up, the sky growing inky.
The town woke. And when they found the boy, with the defeated dragon, the rejoiced. They celebrated the boy, called him hero, and gift.
But only for a moment, as the fingers or the morning crept up, and the stars began to fade. The boy stood with the slain dragon.
...was all he could hear. And then he saw: the dragon landed and arched his back. "You see, are not the stars beautiful", said the dragon.

"Yes, I must slay you, so that I can see the stars," the boy replied, now sad. "But the stars burn at night because I light them with...
"Why must you come out at night," asked the dragon. "To see the stars," said the boy. "To see the stars, you must slay me," the dragon asked
"True," replied the boy, "but I am not allied to go outside at night because you fly at night, so I must slay you." The dragon thought a bit
And the dragon saw him. "I've come to slay you," said the boy. "Why," asked the dragon, "I've never hurt you, or your friends."
...slay the dragon. One night, he started to climb the mountain in the morning, and by noon he reached the dragon's lair. He saw the dragon.
But the boy wanted to see the stars, the real stars, not just the stars drawn on the ceiling of his room. So he decided he would have to...
The didn't let any of their children outside after dark, for at night he dragon would emerge from the mountain and fly above the town.
