Here's an old post I wrote for this topic ages ago. :)

----

As she parted the tall grasses to enter the small clearing, something on the ground caught her eye. It was palm-sized and shaped like an egg. The sun glistened off of it in a radiance of colors. There were blues, violets, and creams, all sparkling in a crystal incandescence. Genevieve bent down to look closer. She could be wrong, but it looked like a dragon’s egg. _Dragons have not been seen in these parts for ages_, she thought to herself. _There is only one. Very strange. I wonder where it came from. Could there be a dragon around here? I have not seen any signs._

Genevieve thought back to the tales her mother used to tell her when she was a child. A small glimmer shown in her eyes at the memory of her mother. She had been gone for over a decade now. Genevieve had to watch over the forest on her own, now that she was the only one left. It was a life passed down from the women in her family.

She hesitated to move the egg to a safer spot, fearing the one who misplaced it. Genevieve stood up and looked towards the sun. She took a deep breath of the cool summer air. She looked around at the wild flowers as they swayed in the slight breeze. _I should be getting back. Mysta will have missed me._ She sent a wary glance back at the egg in a moment of indecisiveness. _Oh, well. There is really nothing I can do right now. Mysta needs her supper and there is much work to be done._

Genevieve turned away from the egg and walked off into the underbrush. As she moved on, she heard a faint humming from the egg, not with her ears, but in her mind. It seemed to be singing to her. _It is so pretty. Can they really be back?_ she thought, with a wistful glance over her shoulder. All she could see of it was a sparkling glitter between the grass stalks.
