7 Hero For Hire, Chapter IV
Author: GeekMan

This is a fictional story created by the author based upon ten random sentences submitted to him by his readership. The challenge for the readers was to come up with the weirdest, silliest, strangest or oddest sentence they could write down and the author would then weave the top ten he received into a coherent story for their amusement. The author also linked each submitted sentence used in the story back to the Blog or email address of the submitter. Adam Dragonhart, the story of a down on his luck hero for hire, was the result.
