Day Trip

"Well," said Harold, watching the dragon soar through the sky and out of sight. "That was exhilarating, despite the sore bum. I've never ridden a dragon before. Where are we?"

"The southern steppes of Ukraine, I think," said Jasfoup, adjusting his trousers. "She must live in those mountains to the north."

"It's a bit chilly." Harold stamped his feet and rubbed his arms. "What have you got planned for the return journey?"

"Planned?" Jasfoup frowned. "You said you wanted a ride to 'somewhere southern in Europe' on the back of a dragon. You didn't say anything about 'and back again'."

Well now - I'm sure Jasfoup is going to come up with some sort of plan but being such a stickler to spoken words by Harold? Really?

Jasfoup can always get home, though...

Ha, ha Jasfoup! *tut* I want to ride a dragon!

Leatherdykeuk said...

Ah! So would I!

*laughs* Harold should know to be specific in his desires!

Yes! He should have learned that by now.
