Dragons


“Dragons,” said Lucy, pointing at the sky.

Jasfoup’s head all but twisted off he whipped it round so quickly. “Where?” he asked.

“There, in the sky.” Lucy finger pointed at the clouds, drifting lazily overhead and Jasfoup let out a sigh, half in relief and half in disappointment. Dragon streaks were the best food in the nine planes. Fortunately, dragons were extinct on eight of them. “They’re just clouds,” he said.

“Are you sure?” Lucy waved. “Because that one has a rider.”

Jasfoup laughed. “It does look like a rider,” he said.

Above, the Elfin dragon rider Hadrim waved back.

I'm shocked Jasfoup! If they are extinct on eight planes - why would you want to eat them?! (besides being tasty)

I lurve Dragons. I would never, ever eat dragon steak. That would be like eating Bambi - or Thumper.

Leatherdykeuk said...

...both of which are very tasty!

As it happens when I lived in Greece, boyfriends mother used to make Hare braised in Red Wine that is thickened using the reserved blood. Jasfoup would have loved it.

Indeed!

I'm surprised (just a bit) that Jasfoup so readily dismissed her "dragon." Alas... Lucy is just too precious.

Jasfoup *knows* there are no dragons because he ate the last one.
