Mondays Finish the Story posts a photo and the first line of the story of which I’m to finish. You’ll find it, it’s in italic.
“The petroglyphs told the story of an unusual event.”
Momma said not to eat humans. I always thought it was because humans were more crunchy than they were chewy. They’re not very meaty.
No, it turns out, humans are intelligent. Who knew?

I mean, you eat a deer and life goes on, well, my life goes on. But you eat a human, they’ll come after you.
They don’t just kill the offending dragon, they kill everyone they find and smash the eggs. I mean, is that fair?
The next time I got hungry, I came up with a plan. It turned out to be a pretty good plan, there was no one to retaliate and it would be a year before I was hungry again.
I gorged on the entire village.

Ha ha, what a clever dragon. Good story.
Thank you. ;0)
LOL. Nice plan…we humans are no better than this dragon sometimes.
Did you mean to say ” life goes on..” in this sentence: “I mean, you eat a deer and live goes on” or is it the dragon’s grammar 🙂
No, it’s lip of the finger. Thanks for letting me know.
He just has to hope there’s never a random survivor who swears vengeance on the bloodthirsty dragon who killed his family… Great story. 🙂
Vengeance is a bitch, or is that a dragon. Great story!
;0) Sometimes it’s difficult to tell. They both breath fire.
That is a good plan. No-one to come after you if you’ve eaten the whole lot of them!
My thoughts exactly. ;0)
What a good dragon! Loved the story Phyllis! Thanks for writing again for the Mondays Finish the Story challenge and be well… ^..^
Much fun. ;0)
Good way to get rid of the evidence as long as there aren’t any “crumbs from the table.” LOL! Great story! Loved it.
Now this is one logical dragon!!! Delightful and funny story!!
And one well fed dragon. I imagine him sleeping it off for quite some time.
Oh my God!
