Zaile and Keith ran down the upraised path.  “Change its nature now!”  Zaile shouted at Keith.  He glanced back at the huge beast as it shifted its bulk and placed one large forearm firmly on the walkway, giving itself more leverage.  The weight of the dragon shook the walkway, almost knocking the two runners off their feet.

“It’s a dragon!”  Keith yelled back at Zaile.

“Make it a nice dragon!”  Zaile gave Keith a hard push, urging him on as the dragon leaned toward them again.
