With a 7,000 year life cycle and bones that couldn’t fossilize, dragons lived only in human myths. Quite suddenly, the Time of Dragons returned. Luckily, the virtually impervious monsters proved uninterested in humans. Like bees, if you didn’t bother them they wouldn’t bother you.
Then again, just standing by could be nerve-wracking when 30-meter giants encountered one another.
Steel plant manager, Ben Norwood had hustled everyone inside while the dragons warred. The behemoths snapped and snarled, lashing at each other with their wings. The cacophony of roars chilled the bones.
Cambridge-educated dragon expert Moritius Hunt finally arrived. “Ah! It’s Molivoridon and Ampholyga…at it again.”
“They’ve done this before?”
Norwood shuddered, “Why haven’t they killed each other?”
“Dragons are tough.”
A blow powerful enough to level a house knocked Ampholyga on her back. Molivoridon pounced upon her in an instant. He straddled her, preparing for the coup de grace.
“He’s gonna kill her!”
“You should probably wear ear protection now.”
“Ampholyga is ready. She’s done with the flirting and foreplay.”
