Mau-Mau my highness. “ mumbled Mau-Mau. The Emperor explained what was happening. The dragon was in its lair in the snowy mountains .

They set out the next day; before they want they said farewell to the Emperor. They travelled far and wide until they got to the bottom of the huge mountains. Slowly Jo-Mo and Mau-Mau climbed the mountain until they made it to the dragons lair.

We shall find thee dragon in this cave. “Jo-Mo cried

As the two great warriors marched into the lair they saw the dragon, its nostrils flaring. Suddenly, Mau-Mau stepped on a stick and the beast awoke ! Ferociously, hero and beast fought. Mau-Mau just watched. Then the dragon’s scales were pieced by Jo-Mo spear, but the dragon shot a burst of flame making Jo-Mo go flying back!
