Shira's story

Shira is writing a story. She outlined the beginning of the plot to Marc. Here's what she said:
The hero is Karog is a dragonslayer which is only one of two jobs available to boys in that village. The other being a councilman. The heroine, who is currently nameless wants to be a good witch but is unable to cast spells. The only professions open to women in her village are, witch, fairy, housewife and hag.

When her hero tells his mother that he is going to be a dragonslayer, she does not answer him in words, she simply reaches into her robes and pulls out a sword.

The two heros leave their respective villages to seek their fortunes whereupon they meet elves and gnomes.

She is still working on the plot, but thus far I think it sounds adorable.
