"The wicked dragon was slain and everyone lived happily ever afterwards,” said Arwen. 
 

“Why did they kill the poor dragon?” asked Eldarion.
 

“Because it ate people and burned down their homes,” said Arwen. 
 

“Why?”the boy persisted. 
 

“Dragons are evil.” 
 

“Why?”
 

“Morgoth made them. so it is in their very nature," Arwen explained patiently. 
 

Eldarion looked thoughtful. He clutched his beloved toy dragon harder, as if fearful some dragon slayer would snatch it away. ”Maybe dragons are bad because no one is ever nice to them?” he suggested. “I don't care what people say. I like dragons!”
