The Emperor and his Council were bewildered and dishearten after Prince Luan stormed out. They couldn’t fathom how they had gotten into this predicament and the thought of loosing Princess Leizu was devastating. It was like they were in the worst nightmare that you can imagine and not being able to wakeup, they were paralyzed. They didn’t know what to do next. Because the Emperor and Council could not seem to resolve the situation, the dragon community felt that they must intervene and the Grand Dragon Council was called to assemble.
Chinese dragons are very organized and methodical creatures. They have an unwavering respect for history, fairness, and tradition. The law was the law but, at times, agreements could be open to interpretation, so the best legal-minded dragons brought their books and records and began their review. Groups were formed to analyze every sentence of the agreement. Great debates ensued. After what seemed like days of deliberations, they concluded that the agreement was, in fact, legal and must be obeyed. They concluded their meeting and went home in dismay.
The Littlest Dragon was stunned. He had such respect for his elders especially the Grand Dragon Council and when they concluded their meeting without a solution he didn’t know what to do, then he remembered the insights of the wise Old Dragon Sage. He left immediately to search the mountains to find him.
