Of all the dangers that Penny might have encountered in the forest, she certainly never in her wildest dreams imagined that she would run into a dragon on her travels. She had always imagined things like that only happened in stories and when she imagined herself in stories, she never imagined herself in those kinds of stories. Perhaps Gen loved a good adventure but Penny was hardly keen on such things.
All at once, she went white as a sheet and it was a miracle she didn't faint right on the spot because she came pretty close. It just happened, though, that she was already on the ground. Shaking, she attempted to scoot backwards, only to get tangled in her skirts. She opened her mouth to beg for - what? For the dragon not to eat her? Would that really be effective?
But then someone (the dragon?) asked if she was alright. "I... did you... what...?" she stuttered, still shaking from shock and fright, not quite able to make sense of anything.
