It’s Cold

It’s really cold outside Fflur, there will be no opportunity the chase ice dragons today. I have locked the entry hatch and shuttered the panels. The other settlers living pods will be at least a hundred metres under the planets surface. I know you are desperate to bring in some fresh meat, but I really do not like the taste of dragon meat. It may cook quickly and turn out looking like pork scratchings, but it tastes of absolutely nothing.

Yes I know that some of others love the stuff, but the deep blue colour puts me off. Ok I know that it was me that wanted to come here and that we are being well paid to protect the scientists. But really darling I wish I was back home. At this moment I would give a years pay for a slice of laver bread and some golden beetroot crisps.

Footnote: I tried to get away from dragons and food, but failed miserably.

    Hahaha! You did fail miserably! They are getting fed Dragon’s meat. Great story, Mike!

      Thank you PJ. Sometimes it is good to fail, I just wished that I had known that sooner.

        Yes, that is true.

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha. You may try to leave the dragons, but dragons will never leave you 🙂

    Might as well embrace the dragons. Good take.

    I guess dragon meat barbecues itself with its flaming breath!

    Looks like you are not really hungry. Imaginatively crafted.
