“No dragon will let you ride him. You’re crazy.” Joe’s voice is distant, far below my perch atop the palm tree. He’s hiding in the bushes.
I flip him the bird, shifting my butt on the coconuts at the tree’s tiptop. Far to the east, an ember breaks from the rising sun. It grows into the shape of a blue-green dragon. He’s moving fast; coming toward the offering of gold, the bait.
A hot wind from his wings stirs the palm fronds. He purrs and settles near the gold below me. I take a breath. I push off.
Warning: Shameless Self-Promotion follows.
My first novel, Just Like Gravity, is now available at Amazon. Here’s the link: http://www.amazon.com/Just-Like-Gravity-Sorchia-Dubois/dp/1633730204/ref=sr_1_1_twi_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1415891473&sr=8-1&keywords=sorchia+dubois. It’s a paranormal romance/adventure kind of thing. If you’ve enjoyed any of my Friday fictioneering, you might like it.
