Interlude in a Swamp

Mommy, I don’t wanna go to sleep.

Why that, hatchling? You must sleep! We have long day bug-hunting tommorrow!

Me afraid! Puppy-men come and burn down hut like they did Yah-Soo’s!

No, youngling! We have friend now!

A friend?

Yes, youngling! Look! Look at entrance to village!

Who is that tall big-person on the dragon, mommy?!

That is our friend, So-yee! She watch over us now! Kill many puppy-men! She watch over us, and when they come, she makes them burst into flame! She make fire jump out of ground! She make fire rain on they heads, and they run and die and explode!

Is she … a goddess?

Maybe, young one. Maybe she is our own fire goddess come to protect us! Now, sleep! Don’t worry about puppy-men no more!

Good night, mommy! Good night, fire goddess! I love you!

Me, too, So-yee. Me, too.
