I had just gotten to the good part of my dream when I heard dragon footsteps. No they weren’t part of my dream they belonged to my pet dragon.
“Em.” I could hear a giggle in his throat. “It’s raining pink outside. It’s sooo pretty.”
I opened the door and out rushed my impulsive pet. “Whoosh” went wings that were still getting acclimated to flight.
“Invisible!!!” I shouted. The big green animal vanished. “Thank you.”
What seemed like hours later, I heard a knock on the door. Breathless, Drag waddled in for a huge bowl of Cheerios topped with bananas.
“I’m making pancakes.”
“Mmm, I’d love a stack.”
Drag was not happy with puppy chow as a baby dragon so when he started eating pizza, we thought any food was better than giving him a taste of livestock.
“Ok, I’m putting blueberries in them.”
“So how was the flight?”
“Oh Em, it was like when we chase bubbles. The pink blossoms fluttered and played with me before they fell to the ground. They stirred dragon memories of fairies.”
“Hmmm maybe that’s what fairies would look like if we could see them.”
“You mean there are still fairies?”
“I don’t think I exactly said that.”
“Come on Em this is a finding fairies kind of day.”
So after eating pancakes, we went on an invisible flight to look for fairies. “Drag, maybe these are fairy dresses.”
“Yes, I think you are right. Now to find the creature that wears pink cherry dresses.”
Make believe is much more fun when you are raising a dragon in the 21st century.
Do you believe there are fairies that wear cherry blossom dresses?
