I saw the claw dangling by the square panel of the stained glass window.
The sight was enough to have me change from random fasting to defined times to eat.
After about a month of eating at six in the morning, noon, and six in the evening, I suddenly fell tipping over my plate.
The guard asked if I was alright. I replied that I was just upset because I missed the noise since all the other prisoners had been moved out.
As he moved closer by the window to check me out, the dragon’s clawed forearm burst through the window grabbing him tightly around the middle.
Quickly, I told Shondra (my dragon) not to kill the guard. I explained that this guard had always treated me well, unlike those previously.
Needless to say the guard was shocked. He begged to be taken with me when I flew away on Shondra, instead of having to face the head guard when my escape is discovered.
He turned out to be very helpful in the great “Dragon War” that followed.
Treat others well no matter the circumstances. You never know when they might reciprocate.
