Once upon a time, there was a young farmer named Li Ming who heard of a legendary treasure hidden in the depths of the Black Forest. Despite the warnings from villagers, he embarked on a journey to find it. Overcoming numerous obstacles, he faced a fierce dragon guarding the treasure. With courage and cunning, he defeated the dragon and obtained the treasure. Returning to the village, he became a hero, inspiring others to pursue their dreams.
I was a young farmer from a village nestled at the edge of the Black Forest.
I'd heard tales of the legendary treasure hidden deep within its mysterious embrace.
The villagers told me that the forest was too dangerous and that a fierce dragon guarded the riches, but I wanted to seek out this wealth for myself.
As I sat with my family in front of the crackling hearth, the flames casting a warm glow on our faces, I imagined myself standing tall, a hero who'd defeated a dragon and claimed its fortune.
When I told my family about my plan, they branded me a fool, but I heeded their warnings and prepared for a journey that may well cost me my life.
I'll never forget that night.
The stars twinkled like diamonds in the sky, and the moon shone like a silver coin.
The Black Forest loomed like a dark mass in the distance, and I knew that this was my chance to chase those stars and make my dreams come true.
The villagers told me that the Black Forest was filled with deadly traps and snares, and that a fierce dragon guarded the treasure.
But I wasn't afraid to face death if it meant living a life better than the one I had.
It seemed like an impossible dream, but I wouldn't let it die.
Every night, as I sat in front of the fire with my family, I'd close my eyes and picture the treasure in my hands.
I'd gently run my fingers over the gold coins and imagine what it would be like to live a life of luxury.
My family had been farmers for generations, and I was tired of toiling under the sun, breaking my back to plant crops that would barely feed us throughout the year.
I wanted to make a name for myself and change our lives for good.
When we were young, my friends and I would play in the fields.
"What do you want to be when you grow up?" one of them asked me one day.
"I want to be a hero," I declared with a grin.
They laughed at me for being so silly, but little did they know that this silly dream would drive me to fight with all my might to change my fate.
As I looked at the forest that night, I felt as if it was calling out to me.
I didn't know how long it would take or if I'd ever find the treasure at all, but I knew that this was something that I had to do.

The forest was much larger than I'd ever imagined, and it seemed to stretch on endlessly into the distance.
I had only been walking for three days, but I had managed to get lost in its depths, my path blocked by thick undergrowth that seemed to grow thicker with every step.
The stories of the villagers and the warnings of my family had faded away into nothing as I made my way through the forest, my mind set on reaching its heart where the legendary treasure lay hidden.
My friends had warned me that the forest was too dangerous, that I'd never survive against the traps that were set to deter adventurers like myself, but I had laughed in their faces, determined to prove them wrong.
The sun had almost set, casting an eerie red glow over the trees, and as night fell, I felt an overwhelming sense of unease settle over me as the last traces of light disappeared from sky, leaving only darkness in its wake.
The leaves rustled in the wind, whispering to each other as if they knew something that I didn't, but I shook off the feeling, pushing aside my fears as I continued on my way.
It felt like I had been walking for hours when a sudden, deafening roar broke through the silence of the night, making my blood run cold.
My heart pounded in my chest as I slowly turned around, hoping that it was just my imagination, but what I saw before me made my legs give out beneath me and I fell to my knees with a cry of despair.
A colossal, winged beast loomed before me, its eyes glowing like fiery embers in the darkness, and I knew that there was no mistaking it for anything else—the dragon had come for me.
The villagers had told me that it was as black as night and twice as tall as a man, with terrifying claws and fangs that could cut through flesh like a knife through butter, and they hadn't been lying—it was so close that I could see every terrifying detail etched into its scaly hide, and it made my heart race even faster than before.
A shiver ran down my spine as if icy fingers had reached out to touch me, making every hair on my body stand on end as I wondered if I'd made a mistake in coming here in search of the treasure that was hidden in the forest, guarded by the dragon.
I wanted to run away and hide, to escape from this nightmare that I'd gotten myself into, but I knew that it was too late for that—the dragon had come for me and it wouldn't rest until it had killed me for daring to trespass on its territory in search of wealth beyond measure.

I didn't want to die—I was still young and there were so many things left for me to do—but I had always known that this was a possibility when I decided to come here, and so I steeled myself as I looked up at the beast looming above me with a heart heavy with fear.
It was so close that I could practically feel its hot breath on my face as it stared down at me with a gaze as sharp as a sword, making my blood run even colder than before and my heart pound even faster in my chest as I wondered if this was how it would all end for me.
And then, to my surprise, the dragon spoke in a voice that rumbled like thunder as it looked down at me with eyes that glowed like fiery embers in the darkness.
I didn't know what to say—I hadn't been expecting the dragon to be able to speak in a human tongue—so I just looked up at it with wide eyes as I tried to come up with an answer that wouldn't get me killed before I had a chance to claim the treasure that was hidden here.
“I'm sorry,” I said at last as I looked up at the beast with a heart heavy with fear and desperation as I wondered if this was how it would all end for me.
“I didn't mean to disturb you, but I'm just a poor farmer from the village who wanted to find the legendary treasure hidden in the forest so that I could use it to make my family's life better, and I didn't know that I would run into such a fierce guardian while I was here…”
I trailed off as the dragon looked down at me in silence, its eyes glowing like fiery embers in the darkness as it seemed to think over what I had said, and then, to my horror, it let out a loud, booming laugh as it looked down at me with a gaze as sharp as a sword and said, “What's this?
You came all this way to trespass on my territory and now you want to leave just like that?
Impudent human—how dare you insult my intelligence like this!
If you want to leave this place alive, you'd better get on your knees and beg for mercy—otherwise, I'll make sure that your death is long and painful so that you'll never forget the mistake you made in coming here!”
I felt my heart sink even lower than before as I looked up at the dragon looming above me with eyes that glowed like fiery embers in the darkness.
I didn't know what to do—I thought that maybe I had been too bold in trying to come here, that maybe this really was how it would all end for me, but then I thought about all of the stories that I had heard back in the village about how heroes had come here in search of treasure only to be eaten by the dragon or killed by its fiery breath instead of being allowed to leave with their lives, and an idea slowly began to form in my mind.

I thought about how the villagers had always said that no one who went into the forest ever came back alive, and how they always told me that if I went in there, I would just end up like all of the others who had died here before me.

But even though they said these things, I had always thought that maybe it wasn't true—that maybe there really was a way to find my fortune here so that I could use it to make my family's life better—and so I had decided to come here anyway so that I could see for myself what lay hidden here.

But now I wished that I had listened to them instead of being so foolish, because now I didn't know if I would ever get out of here alive.

I didn't want my adventure to end like this—alone and afraid in the darkness without anyone there to help me—but I knew that there was nothing that I could do now besides wait for death to come for me.
And so I stood there with my heart heavy with fear and my hands clenched into fists at my sides as I waited for the dragon to strike me down with its fiery breath.
I never knew how much time passed after that—all that I knew was that the dragon didn't kill me as soon as I thought that it would.
I, Li Ming, continued to live my life in the village, tending to my daily duties as a farmer and helping my family with whatever they needed me to do, but even though I had come home, the thought of the legendary treasure hidden in the Black Forest never left my mind.
It had been a foolish idea to set off on a journey to find my fortune as a farmer who had no experience beyond working in the fields, but even though the villagers had warned me about what might happen if a man like me went to look for the treasure, their words hadn't been enough to stop me from coming here so that I could see for myself what lay hidden here.
Despite everything, there was still a part of me that had always wanted to go on an adventure and find my fortune, and when I had heard about what lay hidden in the forest, I had decided to set off right away so that I could see what lay hidden here and claim it for myself.
Even so, the thought of leaving my family alone to fend for themselves while I went off in search of treasure filled me with guilt, but even though they had told me not to go and that they needed me to stay behind so that I could help them with our fields, something inside of me urged me to set off on this journey so that I could find my fortune.
My father wasn't a man who spoke many words, but despite this, we had always gotten along well and he had always made sure to keep me company while we worked on our fields together.
He didn't say much, but he always had a kind smile on his face and he always made sure to treat me well—something that I appreciated more than he knew.
And so, even though he didn't say much when I told him that I wanted to set off on this journey, he had agreed to let me go so that I could see what lay hidden in the forest even though he had warned me about how dangerous an idea like this was.
