I wrote this in fifth grade -- so I finally decided to post it. It's personally one of my favorites!
Argue with the Appetizer
"Will you please hold still?" said a deep, rumbling voice, "I will try to make this quick. I promise it will not hurt!"
"Hold still! I will not hold still!" came a some what incredulous reply, "How can you possible expect me to?"
A deep sigh, "oh come now, we both know that this is the only possible way it can end. 'Tis nothing personal."
"Nothing personal!" the rider cried.
Rayford stared in disbelief at the massive red dragon that stood in the grass in front of him. His horse had long sense run away, galloping mindlessly towards the open rolling, plains, "nothing personal? You land here, scare away my horse, tell me you are going to eat me and say it is nothing personal! Well, it is to me!"
The Dragon sighed, a hint of frustration and exasperation, in the hot gust of air, "no, 'tis not personal. I am hungry. You are food. I am going to eat you. Can we not be civilized about this?"
"Civilized!" Rayford exclaimed, "Dragons are monsters! They are not civilized!" Rayford saw his mistake as soon as the words left his mouth, but by then it was too late to hold them back.
The Dragon cocked his head to the side and blinked his yellow eyes slowly as it thought over the rider's words. Coming to a conclusion he shook his massive head and looked to Rayford, eyes glazing over in hunger. His tongue snaked out and licked hard lips, "you know you are right. Dragons are supposed to be monsters." With that said the Dragon leaned over and ate Rayford in one gulp.
With a satisfied rumble the dragon unfurled his mighty wings and took flight. The rider had made a wonderful appetizer, but he was still hungry. He suddenly had a craving for the horse.
