The first day of the Dragon Renaissance Festival . They have ton of cool stuff at these festival. There are people in dragon costumes dancing and taking pictures with patrons of the festival . The children get dragon candy after interacting with the dragon characters. The children are the one going up to the Dragon characters at the festival. There are shows where the dragon being slayed by the knights of the castle. They have dragon figurines and toys for sale.
Chad and Melonie were both dressed in Renaissance Character clothing .
Chad was wearing a renaissance knight under suit and Melonie was wearing a purple renaissance maiden dress.
Melonie enter the Chad’s car , “ You look gorgeous!”
Chad could not help himself . He just stare at Melonie for a long moment.
“ Are you going to drive ! “ Melonie was blushing from his intense stare.
“ Oh, sorry. I can’t help but stare at your radiant beauty .” He tried to smooth things over in his most galant voice he can mustered. Melonie chuckle at his comment.
“ Playing in the renaissance, character are we?” Melonie, could not help getting into character by batting her lashes and covering her mouth with her hand.
They both start laughing out loud in the car.
Chad started asking, Melonie question about her job on their drive to the festival.
Melonie told Chad, she work for an international gamer company.
She helped create app games. She helped a famous gamer , Andrea , created the Superpower Up Dragon , game app. They are still trying to improve the game. The game is very popular around the world.
They finally arrived at the Dragon Renaissance Festival at 1pm.
He asked Melonie if she was hungry and wanted to eat first?
Chad did not eat breakfast, he was too excited for his date with Melonie.
He knew also how She had a great appetite.
“ Do I have to feed my beautiful Dragon date?” Chad asked with humor twinkle in his eyes.
“ Who are you calling dragon date?” She pretended to be offended
Melonie could not help but laugh at Chad’s silly jokes at her expense.
“ I said , Beautiful dragon date, with the emphasis on BEAUTIFUL!”
Chad gave her a hug at the same time.
They were both laughing as they head in the Epic eatery tent of the festival. The menu was full of dragons names. Buffalo Chicken wings was called Dragon thighs wings galore. Chad and Melonie laugh the whole time because of the crazy dragon names on the menu. The dragon blueberry pie was enormous but epically delicious.The slices was in shape of dragons.
They finally got to the Dragon slayers Epic tent .Chad’s cousin was already performing a scene with a knight battling Dragons. Chad’s cousin was the lead role of the dragon. He was in a huge puppet dragon suit. The head of the dragon almost reach the ceiling of the tent . The battle seem so real and grand. It was surprising the tent did not collapse during the re-enactment from a famous, dragon epic movie.
Everyone was making noise, reacting to the battle play they are seeing before them. It was an amazing performance that everyone in the tent was clapping so hard at the end of the show. The ticket was worth the ten dollars. The kids can touch the dragon puppets at the end of the show.
Chad introduced Melonie to his cousin Pablo. Chad told him that Melonie help create his favorite game app, Superpower Up Dragon game. Pablo was breathing hard from his preformance but it did not stop him from getting excited for being introduced to Melonie.
“Wow, I loved that game ! You, really help create that game? You must give me some tips ! I am at level 19 . Can’t seem to get thru level 20.” Pablo told Melonie.
Melonie give Pablo some secret tips on the Superpower up Dragon game.
Chad just watched Melonie talk about her work to his cousin and Melonie asking Pablo if he can show her how to used the puppet dragon.
Pablo co-actor , called to Pablo ,”Pablo it’s almost ,time for our next performance!”
Pablo said goodbye to Melonie and Chad , plan a get together .
Chad and Melonie were enjoying the festival, especially the closing grand fireworks and drone lights show. The drones light's form dragons in the night sky, over the clearing of the valley.
Chad asked Melonie if she was ready at the same time taking her right hand kissing it.
“ My lady your Chariots awaits you.” Chad took a bow and open the door to his car for Melonie.
Melonie could not help but give him a school girl, giggle at Chad’s charm.
I hope you enjoyed Chad’s and Melonie’s date at the Dragon Renaissance festival as you did their date at the Greenlight festival.
