“Yes Emily.” Dad wore that I’m not sure if this is enthusiastic scream or… there is “more trouble.”
“I can hardly wait to hear.” Well actually news at home these days leaves me rather short of breath.
“He can fly. Drag can fly, well almost. He kinda runs, jumps, flaps and falls on his face, but he’s getting better.”
“Flying? Oh yes flying.” I absently wipe my brow at the thought of a full-grown, flying dragon in my house.
“He told me that he is too heavy for his wings, but his wings will get stronger.”
How much easier would it have been to have gotten a standard poodle? No talking, no wings, no Unknowns. “Oh fantastic, honeeeyyy.”
The last words came out as Drag was careening around the corner eagerly wanting to welcome me home. “That’s a good boy Drag.” His rough tongue lapped up the salt on my hand. “Emily told me you learned new things today. Good dragon.” It’s really unwise to scold a dragon on its first day of flight.
Thanks to each of you at Zero to Hero who have helped Drag take his first flight. What’s Next? Hopefully 2014 we will have several dragon books out . “Bringing Up Drag (raising a dragon in the 21st Century)” was really a fun offshoot of a 3 book fantasy series that is presently on the editing table. Again we appreciate your input and your visits. Drag whispered that he is sending a virtual tail wag to each of you wonderful WordPress people!!!!
