On the fifth day, he was as big as a hippo! The boy finally wished ''I wish I was king.'' And then, he was. And it so happened that the boy's name was America, so the land was called America. The dragon, however, left his cave and was honored. The dragon became the sign for strength in the Chinese zodiac. So, every year, on December 31, New year's eve came, because since that was the day the boy became king, and It was ALWAYS when the boy and his wife smiled up to the dragon, and the dragon smiled back.
