Friday Fictioneers: Magnificent Flight
It was graduation day. We were to do maneuvers. Douglas spread his wings and with one powerful leap we were airborne. But it was up to me to guide my dragon by his reins.
I thought we would fly over mountains and into clouds.
As per his usual habit, he chose something more challenging and disagreeable. He headed for downtown Hollywood.
Now it was my turn. If I did nothing, he would fly into and through buildings.
I successfully guided down the middle of the street, over pedestrian’s heads, avoiding building, and trees.
Together we passed our flying test.

Feeling disillusioned, Jessica Hewitt left everything in her shattered past behind. She moved to WSC Moon Base to join Space Force and explore the galaxy. She didn’t get farther than the frozen planet, Akiane, in the Pegasus Constellation.
Lieutenant Jessica M. Hewett has 72 hours to gain the trust of Pegasus Colony and remind the colonists they are still an Earth colony. But it’s going to take risking her life to gain the colony’s trust.
Jessica doesn’t realize it, but she’s on a mission from God.

Safe landing I hope.
I’m glad they didn’t crash into such a populated area!
That was the plan. Ha.
I hope dragons have better manners than seagulls do.
Fun story :).
I think that depend son the dragon. Some of them have an attitude.
Qualified to appear in all films requiring dragons and magic.
Great complement. Thanks.
Douglas is a great name for a dragon! Interesting take on the prompt.
Thanks and thanks.
Well done, passed with flying colours! Nice one
Dragons! What is one to do? Good story.
Ha ha. Thanks. ;0)
Dragons and Hollywood. They do go together.
Ha. Ha. Funny Rochelle.
What can I say you inspired me.
Thank goodness the street has underground wiring.
lol funny! I never thought of that.
See, details matter.
Now I can see them tangled up in live wires. His thick skin saves him, but not the city. He blew a fuse and shut the city down. Now she’s scolding him for his choice of flight path.
Should have talked to you before I started writing.
You must have scared those pedestrians silly!
