steroids make my brain alert, chemo makes me woozy and tired, taking anti-sickness drugs makes me v emotional because I think they’ll make me sick…

This wasn’t where dragons lived, I thought. But who did live here? I thought about returning to the signpost for Mount Sydney. Maybe the dragons lived over there. But curiosity overcame me. Who lived behind the strange looking doors? I stepped up to the nearest one on the left hand side. The door was wooden and painted a thick, dull brown. It smelt of some kind of wood preservative whose name escaped me. (Still can’t think what it is. Must belong to the memories of what happened Before). I knocked sharply and listened. Inside there was an indistinct wheezing sort of noise. Like someone snorting or chesty, with a cold. I rapped again but the noise continued.
I crossed the track and hammered on the metal door there. It boomed quite nicely and I probably hammered longer than I should.
“Go away!” came a gruff, growly kind of voice…
This is an excerpt from Chapter Ten of my novel Dragonscale Leggings

Some days it feels as though I’m never going to be well again – I will always be like this; achy, sore and walking so slow.

Scent of tea tree oil fills the humid atmosphere; I wash my own hair for the first time since the op.

It’s been a difficult day. Gatus insisted I ride at the back of the column. Tygar wanted to lead. I understand Gatus wanting me at the back – in case the dragon attacks us. But would Tygar listen? I think he wanted to strut along like a king in front of his harem. I reminded him that they weren’t his mares. But he didn’t want to know. After I called him an ‘incorrigible reprobate’ he went on one of his ‘I hate you and the entire world’ moods. My arms feel three times the length they were this morning. He’s been having it easy for too long.
We’ve been travelling north west for a week, across the yellow grassed plains (that was poetic wasn’t it?!), following a south flowing river in search of a ford. Kaga and I have been having sword practice everything evening between making camp and supper. (I think I’ve improved – he didn’t have a word of criticism last night!) Why is it that all the nice men are taken…

Walking straighter, taller, still feeling tight and sore in abdomen. Walking is easier, I feel stronger.
