“It is done, and if anyone mistreats the Dragon Law again, they will be brought in for a hearing and sentenced by me. From now on, no dragon will ever not have a say when it comes to hearings. We fought years for them to have a voice, we killed our kind for them to have a voice, and we lost a lot of good men for them to have a voice, and lost really brave dragons for them to have a voice. My dragon belongs at my side, and no hearing or meeting will ever tell him otherwise. They will be addressed accordingly as they deserve. To gain that title, it’s something that cannot be bought, only earned, and nothing can take it away. Now, if you’ll be so kind as to excuse me, I have a world to run.”
My father stood, grabbed my hand, and bowed again.
The entire hall burst into applause.
Goose bumps flushed my skin as everyone got up, everyone except Duclin, that is. It was the most amazing thing I’d ever seen, and for the first time I didn’t regret saving my father from Etan.
A smile appeared on his face before we walked out.
I smiled again as I thought about that day. It was the first day I’d met my father’s patient side and his side that had given him the title of The Greatest King That Ever Lived.
