Marcus thrust BlazeBlood into the heart of the dragon. The mighty beast burst into flame and perished. The Lady Amnebon was safe.
Marcus awoke sitting on the floor. A book sat in his lap from the library shelf. He turned slowly, readjusting to a different reality.
“Me worried sick you wit’ deh gangs,” said his mother in her Nigerian accent. She sighed. “You here all day?”
“Yeah Mom.” He closed the book Grandpa had showed him.
She smiled. “Good book?” she asked, taking his hand.
“Great!” Marcus surreptitiously flicked a piece of burnt dragon scale off his shoulder. “Took me to another place.”
Each week, the Friday Fictioneers enter a tiny nook in the back of an undisclosed library location. There, we travel to the distant lands to battle fiery dragons, tentacled aliens, and the evil predatory hamsters of Gan’ye’Floristan. Okay, actually that is pure fantasy…the library location isn’t hidden at all. 😉 Look here for more flash fiction stories based upon the photo above: http://rochellewisofffields.wordpress.com/2014/11/26/28-november-2014/
