My name is Macer, Macer Dorn, and I'm seven years old.
I live with my parents in a big city called Magnimar. We live in a little house down the hill from the big fancy houses where the rich people live.
My dad works for The Lord Mayor of our city. My dad's name is Mikos Dorn and he is an officer in the city guard. He works hard to keep our city safe. He protects the rich people and their big homes from the "no goods" who try to steal their stuff. Dad wears armor and carries a spear and a real sword when he goes to work. His sword is shiny and sharp! (I cut myself a little once when I was playing with it...don't tell my dad or I'll get a whuppin'.)
My mom is named Ellan. She is really pretty and nice. She stays home and takes care of me and my little sister, Mira. My sister is only three so she's still a little kid.
When I grow up I want to be a brave knight with a real sword and a big horse. Daddy says I'm still too little for a real sword, so he made me a wooden sword and and stick horse named Hickory so I can play with my friends. Sometimes I even borrow one of momma's metal pots to wear as a helmet. She says she doesn't mind as long as I don't take her good one.
My friends are really nice. Sam, Birgun, Lugh, Kelyn, and Atz all like to play with me and pretend we are heroes. We just met some new kids who like to play down under the big bridge where it is always in the shadows. I think mom and dad would be mad if they knew we played down there. It's kinda scary sometimes, but that's what makes it fun!
My favorite thing in the whole world is my dragon! His name is Vex and he hatched from a dragon egg my parents bought me at the market a few years ago. Momma had always read stories about heroes and dragons to me when I was a little kid like my sister. I knew that some day I'd have a dragon of my own, and then it happened! I found the dragon egg in the market and begged my parents to buy it for me from the man who had it in a basket with some other things that looked like rocks. Momma said it wasn't a real dragon egg, but she bought it for me anyway. I took it home and kept it warm under some blankets and a few weeks later IT HATCHED!!!
Momma was real surprised when it hatched and there was a little dragon inside. She wasn't sure if I could keep it, but I begged her and promised to take care of it. Dad finallly told her to let me try because it would be a good lesson about being responsible.
Vex is getting bigger now, and he goes everywhere with me and my friends. The new kids like Vex, too. There is a pretty girl named Felu with the new kids. She really likes Vex and always plays with us and brings treats for Vex.
Well, I gotta go now. Sam and Birgun just stopped by and said it's time to go on our next adventure!
Bye for now.
