One morning Yagan jae(1) is just about to sit down to breakfast when a knock closely followed by another comes at his front door. He goes to answer it to find a woman in tears and she says something so quickly he does not understand. (1Night ash)copyright protection44PENANAg5IQ8IDpys

   “Calm down Maehwa(2),” he says, gently taking hold of her shoulders. “Come now, take a deep breath.” (2Plum blossom)copyright protection44PENANAQj3l3t2zXc

The woman does as he says and the god asks her, “Please my dear tell me again.”copyright protection44PENANAAjrBE5p2SV

   “It’s my daughter... We cannot wake her... Pl-please help us,” replies the lady with tears rolling down her face.copyright protection44PENANAw80eZ8WCyv

Yagan jae gives her a pat on the arm, he picks up a cloth bag and says, “Let’s go.”copyright protection44PENANA5oP8JSBLsz

They quickly cross the street to enter a small hut, where the lady goes on to show him through to a back room where a man is speaking softly to a child of around ten or eleven years of age, the moment he sees a hand covered in black scales with long white claws, appear over his daughter’s chest, he looks and gasps, “Yagan jae!”copyright protection44PENANAX3SoExu4Am

   “Sorry Pogpung(3), I did not intend to startle you.” (3Waterfall)copyright protection44PENANAZ6u0lu9i6H

The man rises, he performs a deep bow and replies, “No my fault, I was so far away. Please can you help her?”copyright protection44PENANANc5CkOvWAX

The Dragon nods and replies, “I will soon have her awake.”copyright protection44PENANAwx0pWFXqKx

The parents watch him try from a strong smelling herb to the Deathly Orchid the smell of rotting meat fills the room and makes them both feel quite ill. But their daughter remains asleep.copyright protection44PENANAMJEhJZLSiS

   “What? I do not understand... This should have awakened her,” mutters Yagan jae, opening the shutters to let in some clean air.copyright protection44PENANAA64FJpuem4

   “What now?” Pogpung asks, his voice full of worry.copyright protection44PENANAcTCdiySfZC

The god turns around to face them and replies, “I’ve got one more thing to try.”copyright protection44PENANANMmr46rQZK

The parents watch him kneel back down beside their daughter, he removes a strange looking stone from the bag and starts to move it around her body.copyright protection44PENANAIzQNezdJOA

   “Nothing,” he says under his breath.copyright protection44PENANAN0tqdLY61Y

The mother rushes to his side, she grabs hold of his huge bicep and sobs, “Please help her.”copyright protection44PENANAIPK4hOaIE9

Yagan jae gives her a hug and replies in a soft voice, “I would if I could. But I have no idea what I am dealing w-Dreamer. Yes, a Dreamer will know.”copyright protection44PENANAtnJjbXToHH

The parents watch the god rise and walks out of the room. They quickly run after him and he instructs them to keep their daughter warm, and he will be back as soon as he can. They watch him head out of the house and take off into the clear blue sky.copyright protection44PENANAZuIsVVeU1g

Yagan jae travels to islands of the Grey Dragons to ask Yūhi(4) where he can find the Dreamer? (4Setting sun)copyright protection44PENANASK5DPmrZ56

   “He is travelling in the north with my son Yoguri(5).” (5Night mist)copyright protection44PENANA9ytTRFQL4y

   “Thanks.”copyright protection44PENANAs33avY6KS8

   “Wait? What’s the rush?”copyright protection44PENANA0KS5nHrPHx

   “Sorry, there is a little girl in the village on the mainland I am unable to awaken.”copyright protection44PENANAVR5pKX4BI8

   “Oh my goodness, no wonder you’re in a hurry. Go and try by the beach.”copyright protection44PENANA9bccmHass3

Yagan jae performs a slight bow then runs outside to take off. It is late afternoon when he spots a Grey Dragon climbing over some rocks, he quickly comes into land on the pebble beach and calls, “Yogiri!”copyright protection44PENANAAsOtyba01R

   “Yagan jae, what’s the matter?”copyright protection44PENANAxXJCntAs5i

The Black Dragon takes his time to explain to which his friend replies, “He’s in the forest collecting mushrooms.”copyright protection44PENANABeuNrQvCiX

They both run over to the line of trees to find the Dreamer is busy talking to something only he can see and offers a little white flower towards the fallen tree trunk, which disappears.copyright protection44PENANAFTqtmYFwZG

   “Forest Sprits?” Yoguri asks, looking around.copyright protection44PENANAowE891BJtG

“Yes, the forest is full of them. I almost sent one flying as he was fast asleep on a mushroom, weren’t you little one?”copyright protection44PENANA25VwSmmoYF

   “Lèguān(6), I’m in need of your help?” (6Hopefulness)copyright protection44PENANAlDyM7ULMrK

This makes the Dreamer turn around and ask, “Not another demon?”copyright protection44PENANAtQg7Yq9A9D

   “No... Well I hope not,” replies Yagan jae, rubbing the back of his neck.copyright protection44PENANAhcIcIBy5Zx

   “Explain.”copyright protection44PENANAKlbi7idS5E

The Black Dragon tells him everything about the girl and the methods he used to try and awaken her.copyright protection44PENANADyvTGtjQ3t

Lèguān takes a turn around the trunk and mutters, “How strange... Wait, you’re hoping I will be able to bring her out of it?”copyright protection44PENANAtkFcxoN6tN

Yagan jae drops to his keens and replies, “Please try.”copyright protection44PENANADd9Pwh8Jad

The Dreamer nods and replies, “I will see what I can do.”copyright protection44PENANAoNMTHtn1jr

   “Thank you.”copyright protection44PENANAuNMaZjyNp1

   “Oh don’t thank me yet, Yagan jae,” says the Dreamer, as he pats him on the arm and walks off out of the forest.copyright protection44PENANAB3fKTL11vc

The Dragons quickly follow him and Yogiri is about to pick Lèguān up when he shakes his head and continues down the beach.copyright protection44PENANAeUZ1NGubHN

Yagan jae is about to go after him when the Grey Dragon puts up his hand in front of his chest and shakes his head.copyright protection44PENANACcBomAIUo7

   “Let me,” he says in a soft voice.copyright protection44PENANAWZbbK4XM5t

The Black Dragon gives him a nod and watches Yogiri walk quickly after the Dreamer.copyright protection44PENANAYknYlaEPmm

   “Lèguān, stop,” says the Grey Dragon, gently taking hold of his friend’s shoulder which holts him mid stride, then Yogiri gets down on his knees, turning the Dreamer around to face him and continues, “Come on, you know you can talk to me.”copyright protection44PENANADYyenUP5Pe

Lèguān sighs and replies, “I know. It’s just that I’m not looking forward to this. I know what has a hold on the child and I know it is very, very dangerous, it cannot only kill its victim, but me as well, because it can entrap my soul on the other side... All I can hope for is a guardian comes to rescue me.”copyright protection44PENANAdLeoXYtVLz

   “Guardian?” Yagan jae asks, crouching down next to them.copyright protection44PENANAoKTLIfWm5i

   “Mhm... They come in many forms from, beautiful women, handsome men, to beasts, that can resemble a buffalo or can look like a huge cat standing on its hind legs. Also animals from foxes to cats and other creatures. Then there is the ancients, blacked hooded cloaked creatures with blueish purple orbs for eyes, they are skeleton like creatures with a thin layer of skin over their bones. They may sound a bit creepy? But I can tell you now, they are extremely powerful and they are the best weapon against demons.”copyright protection44PENANAIIhgXEbNJ0

   “Ah now I understand. You see the Dreamers that I knew called them, Protectors of the other realm.”copyright protection44PENANA1WMflKePFZ

Lèguān emits a soft laugh and says, “It does not exactly roll off the tongue? That is why my family call them guardians.”copyright protection44PENANAo4KhQsxMPC

   “I agree that is much better. I do not mean to doubt you, but are you sure we are dealing with a demon?” Yagan jae asks, watching Yogiri look right at him and shakes his head.copyright protection44PENANA5ykmPi106K

The Dreamer’s eyes narrow, he frowns and replies, “Do not dare question me, for I have dealt with their kind before. We call them Fear Demon, because they live off a person’s fear and anxiety. They have learned to hide themselves from our crystals, they fool you into thinking the person is just asleep, whilst it feeds. The reason they are so dangerous is because they can tap into what frightens the person the most, losing their family, being lost, dying. Once they find it, they keep them there until the end. I am not exaggerating, they can literally frighten a person to death.”copyright protection44PENANA17HOn3yBSe

   “Forgive me I did not mean to make it sound like I was questioning you. What can we do to get rid of it?”copyright protection44PENANABgjmy9O5WD

Lèguān takes a deep breath and replies, “It is not going to be easy because we are also going to have to make sure the parents show no fear as it will latch on to them. If that happens I may not have enough strength to help them.”copyright protection44PENANAH1c2o1lp2r

Yogiri places his left hand to his chest and says, “I will try to get them to think of happy thoughts as I know it will help not just you, but their child as well.”copyright protection44PENANAa3zRRWVqyN

   “Thanks old friend. All right, let’s get this over with.”copyright protection44PENANAEa3YwC7kH3

Both Dragons nod and once Yagiri has picked up his friend they take off.copyright protection44PENANAYp5artcNSe

It does not take long for them to reach the little village, Yagan jae leads them over to the house of the sleeping girl and knocks on the door before he enters.copyright protection44PENANAe3hNU9JQAi

A man comes running over to greet him and sees he is not alone.copyright protection44PENANADesHcYjki1

   “Do not worry they are friends of mine,” says the Black Dragon, patting him on the arm. “They are here to help your daughter.”copyright protection44PENANAnhqssSWEFP

Pogpung shows them all through and notices the small god remains by the door.copyright protection44PENANATTSbHNkrDU

Yogiri gets down on one knee and asks, “What is it?”copyright protection44PENANAJg9bXm9hHs

Lèguān smiles and asks, “Do you feel that?”copyright protection44PENANAi5KIxcBuRg

   “Feel what?”copyright protection44PENANAjKabVRYgiC

   “Exactly. You nor the mortals will feel it. The only way to describe it is an eerie feeling. I cannot believe I am dealing with one again.”copyright protection44PENANAb1SlcQIm7p

   “Tell us what to do?”copyright protection44PENANAOquz92LKwD

Yagan jae places his hand on the Dreamer’s shoulder and says, “Yogiri’s right, order us around.”copyright protection44PENANA0Qoa1k20Bk

Lèguān laughs and replies, “All right. I need plenty of room, the table needs to be moved and I need to bring the child into the centre.”copyright protection44PENANACMlv8ymQUu

Both Dragons nod and do as he asks.copyright protection44PENANAgJULi3N4Ok

   “What are you doing?” Maehwa asks her voice full of worry.copyright protection44PENANAIOb6Zdq1d1

   “I am a Dreamer, I am here to save your daughter. That is all you need to know. Start asking me questions, like that and I will tell you to leave, understand?”copyright protection44PENANAmQOHmWgINb

The mother nods and replies, “Please help my daughter.”copyright protection44PENANAc4V7PdbDiZ

   “I hope to. I need you both to think of happy times.”copyright protection44PENANAY0O97OmxQA

Ponpung places his arms around his wife and asks, “Why?”copyright protection44PENANAzcrnUNkav8

   “Because if you don’t the thing that has a hold on your daughter will only grow stronger, it lives off fear. No more questions I need to work and work quickly to save her.”copyright protection44PENANAlIcgQ2u1FN

The parents take a step back and watch the Dreamer walk over to their daughter.copyright protection44PENANA1EOPNVEasu

Lèguān pulls a white powdery stone from a small cloth bag and uses it to draw a circle around the child’s futon with symbols at the top, bottom and both sides. He uses a cloth to clean his hand, then carefully opens the top of the little girl’s robe, he hovers his hand over her chest and closes his eyes.copyright protection44PENANAK1GbpAZJKv

A few minutes later his other hand pulls a stone from the same cloth bag, he closes his fingers around it and begins to mutter an incantation.copyright protection44PENANAR6e4n46S5L

This makes the parents look to the Dragons who take it in turns to reassure them everything is all right.copyright protection44PENANAF6qtWdoAoR

   “Yogiri, I need ink,” pants Lèguān.copyright protection44PENANA49TKljlk35

The mother notices the pot of paint on the table her daughter was using to do a picture, she picks it up and hands it to the Grey Dragon. “Will that do?”copyright protection44PENANAPUc3YA75sd

“Yes, thank you,” he replies and walks over to the Dreamer.copyright protection44PENANAQ7jhBgu0QT

Lèguān dips his finger into the orangey yellow paint and draws a symbol on the child’s chest. Then he stands up, his ample size bosom rises as he takes a deep breath and starts to whisper a chant as he breaths out.copyright protection44PENANASU2LFn50H8

Yogiri takes a step back when he notices the stone in his friend’s hand is beginning to glow, his robe and hair also begin to move like a breeze is blowing up from the floor.copyright protection44PENANA6x3jB2TJ7l

Then Lèguān says in a strong voice, “Mela ta, sa unska!”copyright protection44PENANAWYtgf4wK5m

In an instant the Fear Demon is no longer hidden, it looks right at him and says, “Dream Deity!”copyright protection44PENANADXhFJX3OYK

   “Hm that I am. Release her!”copyright protection44PENANAW4i0oT2hC9

   “No.”copyright protection44PENANACz76Pmbl6g

Lèguān shakes his head and says, “Don’t do as I ask. Then you’re in for a shock.”copyright protection44PENANAIKd0pXXsMW

The Fear Demon watches the Dreamer aim his left fist at him and starts to speak an entrapment incantation, making him say, “No... Please.”copyright protection44PENANAdJ0wJppLG2

  “Then release her. Otherwise you leave me with no choice.”copyright protection44PENANAUjB2proBMv

The Fear Demon comes rushing towards him only to crash into an invisible barrier.copyright protection44PENANARvf5vF2t8O

Lèguān laughs and says, “Surprise. You cannot get to us.”copyright protection44PENANApmxqSgPi2w

This only makes the demon angry and it starts to smack its fists in to the barrier. copyright protection44PENANAlWPWYfnnQa

The Dreamer knows it will not hold for long, he takes a deep breath and starts to chant again.copyright protection44PENANASIF8NbNQEW

Cracks soon begin to appear making Lèguān grown in pain as he tries to keep the barrier from braking and says aloud, “SALA ME TA KA LA... UN INTA SE!”copyright protection44PENANAE4icuatjtv

The others can hear from his voice he is in a great deal of pain, they all try to think of happy thoughts in the hope it will help him defeat the demon. They also start to notice something glowing in his cleavage under his robes which makes Ponpung turn his gaze to the floor.copyright protection44PENANAQOsFLqV8OM

The Dreamer’s outer pupils see the cracks in the barrier are reducing, he is winning this fight. He takes few deep breaths and pants, “Let...her...go!”copyright protection44PENANAjGuZPhaD7P

The Fear Demon raises its fists above its head and is about to bring them down when it feel a gush of air come from behind, making it look over its shoulder to see a portal has opened.copyright protection44PENANAzMTRZn2sHv

Lèguān takes a deep breath and says in a bold voice, “Lin ka me saka... In ma la!”copyright protection44PENANAYxjqd5R8eF

A set of skeleton like hands come through the portal, they grab hold of the demon and after a bit of a struggle pull it inside, closing the portal behind them which causes a gust of wind to blow through the room.copyright protection44PENANAUxmpwbGHOO

The Dreamer mutters, “It’s over,” then collapses into a heap on the floor.copyright protection44PENANAwoBqgANi3v

Yogiri runs over to him, he gently sits him up to see the glow under his robes is starting to fade and the stone he was holding falls from his hand. “Lèguān,” he whispers. “Lèguān? Please be all right?”copyright protection44PENANAO138sgdjpr

Yagan jae stop the parents from going to their daughter, he points his hand at the incantation on the floor and says in a soft voice, “That is a barrier, the reason my friend is able to hold the Dreamer is because look, the top part of his body is on the other side. Look at Yogiri’s robe it looks like his sleeve is pressed up against something.”copyright protection44PENANAYkZkJvvqdk

The parents look to where the Black Dragon is pointing to see what he means, the Grey Dragon’s robes are creased like he is leaning against a wall.copyright protection44PENANAeKIQaYqYhu

   “Do not worry, when he comes too he will collapse it.”copyright protection44PENANAu5vxdXOrhd

They all hear the Dreamer start to moan, his eyes open and he says, “Oh I don’t want to do that again for a long time.”copyright protection44PENANASfyRzhn5IB

Yogiri, gives him a hug making him say, “I’m all right old friend, just a little tired.”copyright protection44PENANAqXl9Nw8eup

   “I understand, can you lower the barrier?”copyright protection44PENANAIYvdwIbkas

Lèguān nods, he takes hold of the stone, and holds it out in front of him as he says, “Kin ma insa.”copyright protection44PENANAx2I6Uioin6

The barrier starts to crack, then shatters into a fine dust which drifts upward and fades like glitter on the wind.copyright protection44PENANATO3eXRL55f

   “It’s down,” he says and falls asleep.copyright protection44PENANAuNeZ1KIc4S

Yogiri picks him up and asks, “Do you have a spare room?”copyright protection44PENANAFCVnIQF683

Maehwa nods and leads him out of the room to enter one which lies next door, she unrolls a futon and helps the Grey Dragon to lie the Dreamer down.copyright protection44PENANAd1RhgO81Ue

   “Is he all right?” she asks all concerned.copyright protection44PENANAhp1vo2g7fk

   “Yes, he’s fine, he just needs to rest.”copyright protection44PENANA0VWWjFMYMU

The mother nods and they both leave him to sleep.copyright protection44PENANA20WThdIqfD

Around an hour later the little girl awakens, she sits up to see her parents are beside her bed along with two Dragons, making her point her hand towards them and ask, “Why are they here?”copyright protection44PENANAEw2G2qJiyZ

Maehwa gives her a hug and goes on to tell her, “We could not wake you, they along with a Dreamer came to help.”copyright protection44PENANACyUzudfhc2

   “Why couldn’t you wake me?”copyright protection44PENANAce288kmQKB

The mother is unable to answer her daughter’s question, she just holds her close and looks to her husband, who goes on to say, “Because you were in a deep sleep. But everything is all right now.”copyright protection44PENANAtp8w6aWPsv

The little girl nods and gives her dad a hug. “I’m hungry... What have we got to eat?”copyright protection44PENANAO54JFzWUQ9

Everyone laughs and Maehwa replies, “Come on, let’s make a start on lunch?”copyright protection44PENANAW2nZbvjxm4

The little girl nods and walks with her mother out of the room.copyright protection44PENANA9QthmzrjpU

Ponpung stands up, he performs a slight bow and says, “Thank you both for all your help and please join us.”copyright protection44PENANAOe0SXFrUAi

The Dragons nod and follow him down to the kitchen where they are treated to a simple but filling meal.copyright protection44PENANA3xlrwwXP4j

It is late afternoon when Lèguān awakens to hear the sound of a child laughing, he stands up and walks over to the window to see the little girl is happily playing with his friends and her parents. He is glad to see everything is back to normal. Turning around he notices his entrapment stone is lying on the floor, he picks it up, placing it back into the little cloth bag along with the rest as he walks out of the room. The Dreamer has not walked more than a few steps into the main part of the house, when he gets the feeling something is in the room behind him. He turns around to see it is the child’s bedroom. Suddenly it is cast in shadow like a thin cloth had been placed across the window.copyright protection44PENANATdanuxXWQm

Lèguān slowly steps inside and his thirteen pupils start to look around, to focus on a shadow crouched by the incantation.copyright protection44PENANAQFBQyzw0t6

   “What’s wrong?”copyright protection44PENANAixEDYaaV0e

The little shadow looks up at him, it points its hand over to where the Dreamer had opened the portal in the other realm.copyright protection44PENANAfUrpiWWfSN

At first Lèguān sees nothing but a blank wall, then he sees a few stray sparks come busting through a crack in the plaster.copyright protection44PENANACIsez0N51h

   “No. Damn it!” hisses the Dreamer, shaking his head.copyright protection44PENANAcjOQXN17J2

The little shadow walks over to him and holds up its hands.copyright protection44PENANAmYWNofKlvC

Lèguān crouches down with his left hand out towards it and little shadow places a tiny bead upon his palm, then points its hand at the crack.copyright protection44PENANA87lBmVC90D

   “This will seal it?”copyright protection44PENANAqdWf3U251L

The little shadow nods and watches the Dreamer walk on his knees over to the wall.copyright protection44PENANA7oK4b8jWtO

The moment he places the tiny blue stone into the gap it vanishes. The shadow also starts to fade away, it gives a bow before it completely disappears.copyright protection44PENANAyCWUdiPPsQ

The light returns to the room, Lèguān stands up, he takes one last look around before he goes on to join his friends.copyright protection44PENANAtS3q77kacm

Maehwa makes him a nice meal and a refreshing pot of tea.copyright protection44PENANAVjKGnWOHSi

Yogiri knows with what his friend has been through, he will not be wanting to stay long as the empathic side of his brain will be quite sensitive. He watches him rub the left side of his forehead and moans.copyright protection44PENANAvqVsl9LaZd

   “Eat that, and we will get going. Would you like me to get her to leave?”copyright protection44PENANA0s53Sdbcon

Lèguān shakes his head and replies, “No, it’s all right. However, you’re right once I’ve eaten this, we will have to get going.”copyright protection44PENANAzkHj05fPM8

   “I’m happy to take you anywhere, even home.”copyright protection44PENANA8iz3KUcv4b

   “Thank you. The waterfall.”copyright protection44PENANAJ5DO8w2jIq

The Grey Dragon gives him a nod and a smile.copyright protection44PENANAHhKoBLtQAf

Even though Maehwa does not understand a word the gods were speaking, she can tell the Dreamer is needing some space from mortals as he has not spoken one word to her. She gives them a bow and walks out of the room.copyright protection44PENANAYIyyLjsYOw

Once Lèguān has had enough to eat and drink they all head outside to say goodbye to the family.copyright protection44PENANAaxBNmKjp42

The little girl, holds up a bunch of flowers and says, “Thank you for helping me Dreamer.”copyright protection44PENANAQLkAaVmDMW

   “Lèguān is my name little one. And thank you,” he replies as he takes them.copyright protection44PENANATLEsjqLLpA

The mother gets her daughter to bow to him.copyright protection44PENANAiz8UnuFGUJ

Yagan jae pats the Dreamer’s arm and says, “It was good to see you again.”copyright protection44PENANAJKv3lGZHjL

   “You too. I hope one day we see each other again without demons.”copyright protection44PENANADdxiFQJqC9

The Black Dragon nods and replies, “True. How’s about tomorrow night dinner at my place?”copyright protection44PENANA1UI9O5DuMy

   “It’s a date,” replies Lèguān, with a nod.copyright protection44PENANAdviJzEpzlJ

Yogiri gently picks him up, unfolds his wings and takes off.copyright protection44PENANAkZXRiDI23k

Yagan jae remains with the family for the night and heads home the next morning with everything he needs to cook his friends a nice meal.copyright protection44PENANAb5eTe3ZSxL

It is just beginning to get dark when Yogiri and Lèguān arrive. They see their friend has been busy cooking all kinds of dishes and they find each one to be just as lovely as the first. For afters he does them a nice bowl of fruit. They all sit talking long into the night and end up going to bed in the early hour. The next morning after breakfast Lèguān is wanting to get going to the caves Yogiri had told him about that lie on an island not far from his home.copyright protection44PENANAqLhJvRnVqI

Yagan jae decides to go with them and finds the Dreamer to a man who loves exploring new places.copyright protection44PENANAELIBD0el3i

They all have a wonderful day together and hope to do it again soon.copyright protection44PENANAFenU8CY7uw
