There was a chip at the edge of the roost, which was not noticed while the dragon rider poked at the heavy pack on the dragon’s wing joints.
The pack started to spin under the belly of the dragon when little Pieter asked:
“What are you doing? Don’t you know the pack is supposed to be on the dragon’s back?”
Condoron, the dragon rider, replied:
“Of course I know that little one.”
“Then why do you have the pack under the belly?”
Condoron, who should have known better than to have a conversation with a five-year old, explained that the pack had slipped.
Pieter piped up:
“Why didn’t you tighten it so it wouldn’t slip?”
Condoron became incensed and threw Pieter off the ledge, but luckily Pieter being a young dragon was able to fly back up, and never bothered Condoron again.
Remember, do not pester someone who is trying to mount a dragon, lest the fuss cause them to do something rash.
