It sweeps in fast, low over your heads, pivoting in the air over the farm. It does indeed look very much like a dragon: four legs on a long, lizardlike body, batlike wings, long tail ending in a wicked spike, long neck topped by a horned head and long muzzle full of sharp teeth.

It plunges down and snatches one of the livestock out of the pen right in front of the terrified farmer, who is then knocked flat by the beating of the huge wings as the beast takes again to the sky. With the howling herdbeast in its rear talons, the dragon heads off, back in the direction from whence it came.

In a flash, Lightbeam too takes to the air. I'll follow it!

Too late to call Lightbeam back, Margery only says, Keep your distance!

Right. You see Lightbeam pull up, gaining altitude and putting a little vertical distance between himself and the dragon-thing. It's clear, however, he could easily outrun it if need be.

"You have a bold companion," the Doctor remarks, looking after them. "Shall we follow? I doubt we'll be able to keep them in sight ourselves, but hopefully your friend can guide us."
