Once upon a time, in a faraway kingdom, there lived a scary dragon with fiery eyes and shiny scales. Every day, the dragon asked for two sheep to eat, making the villagers very worried as they had fewer and fewer sheep.
One day, the dragon demanded something even scarier – a person from the village to be chosen by chance. On a day when the sky was colored by the dragon’s fiery breath, the unlucky choice was the kingdom’s kind and beautiful princess.
Feeling sad but brave, the princess walked to the dragon’s home by the lake. There, she met Saint George, a very brave knight. He asked her, “Why are you so sad, princess?”
“I’m here because of the dragon. Please go away, or it might get you too,” she replied with a shaky voice.
But George, wearing shiny armor and holding a sword, boldly said, “Don’t worry, princess. I’m here to protect everyone. This dragon won’t trouble you anymore!”
Just then, the dragon appeared, roaring and breathing fire. The people in the village watched from far away, their hearts beating fast.
Saint George stood bravely in front of the dragon. When the dragon tried to breathe fire at him, George, strong and unafraid, fought back.
“Princess, throw me your belt!” George shouted during the fight. The princess quickly took off her belt and threw it to him. As soon as George put the belt around the dragon, something magical happened – the dragon calmed down and became gentle.
George, the princess, and the now calm dragon went back to the village. Everyone cheered when they saw them. George said, “See how being brave and having faith can defeat any bad thing!”
The king was so impressed by George’s bravery and faith, he promised to make the kingdom a place full of kindness and belief. George then made sure the dragon couldn’t scare anyone anymore.
The king wanted to give George a lot of gold, but George said, “No, thank you. I just want this kingdom to be kind and caring.”
So, Saint George left on his horse, remembered forever as a true hero, inspiring everyone to be brave and kind.
