So the Story Goes
Tessa lives in a cave with her protector, Cole the dragon. Waiting for a worthy man to ask for her hand, she finds all who come dimwitted or insufferably arrogant and easily defeated by Cole. That is until one day Frederick comes strolling up the path with neither armor nor sword and wins the heart of both Tessa and Cole with disarmingly honest behavior and cordial conversation. It is Frederick who wins Tessa's hand, Cole's treasure to build a kingdom and Cole's protection for the kingdom for one thousand years.
