The scaly couple had lived together a long time, even for dragons.
“How was your day, dear?” asked Grizelda.
Brand snorted. A wisp of sulfurous smoke wafted toward the stalactites. “During my constitutional, I encountered a most disagreeable knight.”
Grizelda shifted on their hoard. Gold coins cascaded, tinkling like rain. “Well, were you plundering a castle again?”
“I’m a dragon!” roared Brand. “That’s part of the job description.” BELCH.
Grizelda shook her snout. “How rude. Were you raised in a barn?”
Brand pointed at his rumbling belly with a claw the length of a sword. “Rude? He’s still disagreeing with me.”
Great story! Loved it!

Tightened and clear fairy tale. Nicely done.
Perfect! I appreciated the typical banter between the long-married couple.

Saw it coming — and happy when it arrived — gulp.
Ha ha..looking forward to the book:)
