QUEENIA OF THE DRAGONS AND HER BEST FRIEND FOREVER
Illustrated by Isley (4)
Written by Luke (31)
It is difficult for queens to keep friends. This is especially true for dragon queens, who like to eat their friends.
Queenia of the Dragons had never had a friend for more than a day.
“Thanks for playing with me. Would you like to stay for. ..dinner?” she would ask. Or even, “let’s play restaurant. You can be Lunch and climb on into that hot soup pot.”
Now, dragons are nocturnal and only like go out at night. But Queenia found it harder and harder to find friends to play with (and eat) so she had to go out in the daytime to find someone.
There, in the daytime, she met Mr. Golden Sun. He smiled brightly all the time. Queenia liked that. He made her feel warm all over. She liked that too.
So she tried to eat Mr. Golden Sun. And when she couldn’t, Queenia realized she’d met her Best Friend Forever.
