That Time of the Century

Photo by: Jean L. Hays

The gargantuan dragon had proven impervious to human weapons and still demanded a virgin.

General Cavendish saluted fifteen-year old Genevieve Holder with a tear. “Your sacrifice will not be forgotten.”

Genevieve shook with fear, but bravely entered the cave entrance. Twenty minutes later, she returned, laughing.

Worried, Cavendish said, “What’s wrong?”

Still chuckling, Genevieve said, “It’s fine. She’s going through changes, and it’s that time of the century.”

Cavendish shook his head, confused. “Time for what?”

Genevieve patted his arm. “It’s a girl thing, General. I’m gonna need fifty yards of super-absorbent foam, preferably pink.”

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

  4. I’m a female so I understand perfectly. No wonder the dragon asked for a virgin. Good for Genevieve, the heroine of the day. Hilarious, Eric. πŸ˜€ — Suzanne

    Good thing they didn’t send a virgin male. He’d probably just die of extreme awkwardness.

  10. Dear Eric,

    There are certain things only another female can understand. Crazy story and I love it.

    Shalom,

      So true. For centuries dragons have demanded virgins. We thought they wanted to eat them. In reality, they just wanted advice. πŸ˜‰ Thanks so much! πŸ™‚

    I love the humour in this. But a small change would add a satisfactory dimension for me.

    Genevieve patted his arm. β€œIt’s a girl thing, General. I’m gonna need fifty yards of super-absorbent foam, preferably pink, and the Dragon wants you to deliver it.””
