Once upon a time in a distant land lived a princess and her dragons. She was a jewel to behold, fair of face and sweet of temper, a true woman’s woman. At least that’s what the enchanted looking glass (mirror) told her every morning. Her dragons meant well, but were quite overprotective, as all parents tend to be.
One glorious morning out riding her blue roan (greyish blue speckled horse) a loud noise distrubed her peace. An angry charging bumble bee thundered toward her.
“Hello there. Are you okay? I seem to be lost.”
Screaming our princess whipped poor Speckled around back to the manison (castles are drafty) and hung on for dear life. The voice kept in her ear, she glanced to the side and the angry bumble bee humanoid was beside her.
“Was it something I said? Can you tell me how to get to Portland?”
She clung to her horse and looked behind her. She never saw the branch.
“Lady don’t move. You took a nasty wallop and then fell off that fast moving critter.”
It was standing over her, she opened her eyes determined to face her death with dignity. A guy stooped beside her, of the humanoid creature she saw nothing.
“My protector. You saved me from a horrible fate. A strange creature was chasing me. You may claim a kiss.”
“Ahm lady, I think you bumped your head harder than I thought. You need a doctor.”
Grrrrrrrrowl the woods began to shake. Lighting danced across the sky, while thunder boomed in the heavens.
” Come on, we gotta get you up. We are fixing to have a doozie of a storm.”
“I shall wait here while you fetch my horse.”
“Ahm lady, there ain’t no time for that. You can ride behind me on my dirt bike.”
“Your what? I’ve never been spoken to like that in my life. You will fetch my horse. I command you. And what storm? Those are my parents coming.”
Race started backing away from her. The chick was more out of it than he assumed. A vicious peal of thunder and lighting had him scrambling for the bike. He didn’t usually leave a lady in a lurch, but she thought she was some kind of royalty. Kiss her, no way he was falling for that and get slapped with a sexual harrassment charge. Nope he was outta here.
“Look lady you need help and …” his voice died. A huge lizard was behind her. He grabbed her hand yanking her away from the monster. He pushed her toward the bike, keeping between the lizard and her. He jumped on and fired it up. The chick started screaming and backing away when he put his helmet on.
