This is the second winner of the Raffle to have my scribe write a story with one of his friends in a starring role. Storm Gryphon wanted something magical and to show that gryphons have a 'silly' side. I think they are a bit 'cheeky' too. *grins toothily*
Farloft lay on the rock shelf above the entrance to his cave. His belly was turned up toward the sky and his eyes were mere slits as he basked in the mid-day sun.
“Ah…hum…” someone said, disturbing the dragon’s peaceful snooze.
Farloft didn’t have to look to know who had flown in on silent wings and landed below at the entrance to his cave. It would be Storm Gryphon. He was the only one who could get past Farloft’s exceptional hearing. His silent and stealthy ways were the reason the king employed him as scout and sometimes spy for the kingdom.
“What do you want, Bird?” Farloft growled. He did not take well to his nap being interrupted.
“Your attention, or I would not have come, Lazy Old Lizard,” the gryphon said testily.
I am joining Max Bear for his Halloween event this Saturday, October 29th.
If you are a mother or grandmother please join me from 7:00 to 7:30 am PST, or for those on the East Coast a more reasonable time of 10:00 to 10:30. My posts will remain on the site all day as others drop in to visit with Max.
I am going to post some SoundCloud recordings from my Storybook, coloring pictures to download and the link for my storybook.
My friend, Haristaan, entered my raffle to have a story written by my scribe Theresa.
He made the suggestion that the two of us might rescue another dragon in his story.
Theresa took the suggestion and using her writing talents, she ran with it.
Farloft and Haristaan had been traveling together for several weeks. The old dragon enjoyed the company of the younger black. Haristaan was quick witted, charming and best of all he was a good listener. The younger dragon seemed to absorb Farloft’s stories like a sponge. He never tired of the old one’s tales of times long gone by.
