Dragon Friends - snippet from COSMIC WARS for #WeWriWa #SciFi Adventure



Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Meet writers in various genres and read 8-10 sentence snippets of their stories. Find a new author and sample their work. Enjoy!

This weekend, I’m continuing a scene from my latest release, Cosmic Wars, Book 5 of the Grand Masters’ GalaxyThe Griffins, Violet, Athanor, and their son, Varan, are at home when their dragon friends visit with their baby, Istros.

The Black Dragon croaked, “We promised to bring our son to meet your Vron child.”
Her large emerald eyes gleaming, Istrelle chimed, “We wish to learn of your exploits in the peculiar lands beyond the Rift.”
“You are welcome in the Griffin’s Eyrie,” Athanor said in his most gracious tone. Crouching on one knee, he propped Varan on his thigh and offered his hand to the small dragon.
“Dragon,” the boy squealed in excitement and clapped his hands.
Istros hissed and retreated a step, swinging his thin tail in alarm.
Her musical voice full of laughter, Istrelle sang, “Little Vron will not hurt you. We are friends with the Griffin family.”
Athanor curled his lips in gruff amusement, proclaiming with pride, “My son does not fear dragons.”

    1. Other parts of the story are the opposite of cute. I like variety!

  3. I just wonder if the boy is old enough to know dragons are, generally, to be feared.

    1. Probably not. He's less than a year old and just begun to walk. He talks in single word sentences, but he's seen pictures of dragons.

  5. Some little kids are fearless. Not always a great thing, as I'm pretty sure dragons are generally to be treated with a healthy respect for teeth and claws!
