“Aw, Drag… Don’t make it one of those days where you stay grumpy all day.”
Drag pushed aside the curtain door and looked at the butcher over her shoulder. “Too late.” She then sassily shrugged the drapes off her back and tail and was gone.
How could she bring that up? And the timing! What crappy timing. The place for it wasn’t that great, either. Why would anyone want to talk about someone’s solitude in a public establishment such as a butcher’s shop? What kind of crap was that? Drag snorted, releasing a small puff of blue flame from her snout. One thing was for sure, though. She still had her meat, and when she got home, she will eat it. And then, she will take a nap. The very thought of it made her relax and put a smile on her face, something that hardly ever happens these days. She couldn’t wait. Grabbing the bag tightly in her jaws, she sat on her haunches and spread her wings, gazing up at the bright blue sky. It sure was a nice day. She couldn’t fly and enjoy much of the air, but she could glide to get a taste of it. She would glide to the cliff on the other side of the river below, then, it would be a long climb up from there. She flexed her wings and prepared to jump.
“Hey, you!” Drag nearly fell off the cliff. Her front paws scraped the side in a desperate attempt to bring her back up to the ledge. That was a close one. She managed to right herself in the nick of time. Whoever startled her was going to pay for that, big time. She turned around and saw a strange green dragon, wings outstretched, darting her way. “Hey, you, lady!” The dragon overshot his target and slid off the cliff ledge.
Drag lowered her ears and raised an eyebrow. “O…kay…?” Drag would have taken this opportunity to leave, had she not heard the familiar steady, rhythmic beating of large wings. Instinctively, she stepped back to make room for the strange dragon. He landed in front of her with a thud.
