Sample text:

While they were having dinner, Uncle Angus explained about the castle – how old it was, how his ancestors had passed it down from generation to generation, how during uprisings the family had always fought valiantly to protect the castle.

Amy was fascinated and, with her head in her hands, listened intently to everything Uncle Angus said. Until he said, “And, of course, there’s the wee dragon in the dungeon, too.”

“Angus!” bellowed Aunt Morag, “There’ll be none of that! They’ve had a long journey, they’re tired and you’ll only frighten them. You’ll not expose this wee young lass to such a thing!”

 But tired or not Amy simply could not let something like this pass.

“A dragon? There are no such things as dragons. They’re only in fairy tales,” Amy said with as much certainty as she could muster. Deep down she really wanted it to be true.

“Uncle Angus,” said Amy’s Dad, “Please don’t fill Amy’s head with such nonsense. We all know that dragons aren’t real.”

“Are they not, then?” replied Uncle Angus, smiling and Auntie Morag just sighed.
