Draco the Legendary Dragon Part II

Draco the Legendary Dragon Part II

The continued story of Draco and how he will face the biggest obstacle to ever come to him.

Meghan Wiedelman


Captiosus was wandering around the camp when he wandered a little too far and found a towering wall of rock, and found himself wondering if that is where Draco the Legendary Dragon lived. The elders had tried their best to convince him that Draco was just a legend but Captiosus still could not help but think that Draco was more than a legend, that he really was sitting on the top of the rock watching over them all and protecting them from anything that could harm them. As he sat there gazing upon the rock, he decided now was as great a time as any to try to see what his power was, if he was the next Voler.

He starts with lowering his back feet and tail to the ground, bouncing back and forth on each foot, like a cat preparing to pounce. He jumps! And jumps so high! He pulls his wings out and soars higher than he thought imaginable! He thinks he sees the top but then... he starts to go lower, closer to the ground. He lifts his wings and beats them down trying to fly higher up but he no longer has the strength so he soars back down to the ground. As he stands back on the ground he lowers his wings in disappointment and sadness. He never loses hope though, for the next couple of days he tries to fly to the top. One day he finally makes it! He makes it all the way to the top! He finds what he thinks to be a dragon's home... he slowly creeps toward it when he sees a dragon of enormous size that came out into the sunlight and stretched. In amazement, Captiosus looks at the dragon before him.


"Why hello there young one," Draco said to the young dragon standing in front of him.

"H-h-hello," replied Captiosus, "are you the dragon everyone calls Draco?"

"Yes, yes I am. I am the Draco the Legendary Dragon, the last living Voler, that is, until now."

"You think I am another Voler?"

"Well how else did you get up this far? No regular dragon can fly up this high, you have to possess the Voler ability to make it up this high."

"The elders mentioned something about that."

"The elders are wiser than you will ever think they are."

"They always told me that too..."

"What else have they told you?"

"They told me that you were always just a legend, that you were never real. I can see now that they were wrong about that."

"Yes they are but you can't be upset with them about that. My legend was lost long ago and I chose to accept that. Many people will see and believe what they want to believe, even if it's not true, and sometimes you have to choose to accept that because that can be your truth."

"I never really thought about it that way."

"This is why I am the old and wise one," Draco said as he jokingly nudged Captiosus on the shoulder.

"Mr. Draco--"

"Please, just call me Draco."

"Okay. Draco, could you teach me how to be a Voler like you?"

"I thought you would never ask. It would be my honor."

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"
