Chronicles of the Dragon Cave from A to Z: "O" is for Oddities
Hello visitors, I'm Sessin, son of Tassin. I was supposed to talk about Omelette Sessin Special but no matter what my father says, I don't like to give my secret recipes away. So instead, I'll talk about oddities in the Dragon Cave. Oddities make life with dragons special and fun.
Mother Dragon and Father Dragon talk alone all the time, out loud. I think that's odd but it really gets interesting when they are in the same chamber. Check this.
Camera pans to the quartz chamber where Mother Dragon is pacing and Father Dragon is writing.
"What are we eating today?" Mother Dragon asks. "What do you want?"
"A hamburger." Father Dragon answers, his claws dancing on the keyboard.
She acknowledges his presence for the first time. "What? I wasn't talking to you. I was wondering what I felt like eating today."
"It really sucks." Father Dragon's eyes are fixed on the screen.
Clueless, he looks up to meet her glare. "You do? Ah, no! I'm talking to myself."
Silence. Mother Dragon paces some more and Father Dragon goes back to his writing.
"So what do you want to eat?" She asks again.
More Silence. Mother Dragon smacks Father Dragon on the back of the head. "I'm asking you what do you want to eat!"
"Oh, I thought you were talking to yourself."
"Nevermind!" She snorts. "Why do I even bother. I am choosing now. Bear with it!" She leaves, ranting something about Father Dragon going into catatonic state each time he's in front of the computer.
The camera returns to Father Dragon.
"No, Father Dragon, don't kill me. I'm a good character. You need me." He chuckles, shakes his head and keeps typing. "Oh, I am so nuts."
A brief pause later, the video shows Mother Dragon in the kitchen.
"And now I'm going to put this here and we're set. Ah! Mother Dragon, you're a genius! But you talk so much you make me dizzy. Shut up already. You're so crazy!"
Sessin's face appears and smiles at the camera.
"How's that for odd? Now remember, you never saw this. If somebody asks, I told you about omelettes. This video will self destroy in ten seconds."
A whisper is heard then. "We don't have self destructing devices."
"Oh." Sessin gets closer to the camera. "Would someone in the audience set the video on fire in the next ten seconds please? Thank you!"
