The Thirteenth Knight
The snow-frosted peaks of Flatfrost sparkled in the midmorning sun. Prince Lucas watched his best friend, Clara, try to catch snowflakes on her tongue.
“You look ridiculous!” Lucas said, laughing.
Clara stuck her tongue out at the prince. “Who cares! I’m just glad it’s cold outside!”
Back home, the palace had been suffering from a terrible heat wave. Lucas and Clara were happy to have escaped. Prince Lucas’s pet dragon, on the other hand, was not. Ruskin was a red dragon and red dragons loved hot weather—the hotter the better.
In spite of hating the cold, Ruskin made the best sled chute ever with his fiery breath. The melted snow had frozen into a smooth, slippery half-pipe.
