chPUPPY’S NEW FRIEND
Puppy is a very happy mutt who loves to play and go on all sorts of adventures. So one day when her mother asked her to go to the local store to pick up some lamb bones for dinner. Puppy was very happy to do it. For in her mind every time Puppy’s mom asked her to go anywhere she thought of it as if she was going on a new adventure then doing some kind of chore
Soon Puppy was inside the store picking out the juices bones she could find. There were two poodles standing a couple feet away from her talking rather loudly
I swear sometimes I think that husband of mines has the courage of a cat stuck outside during a rainstorm. Mrs. Crabby was telling Princess
Excuse me Mrs. Crabby but what is your husband so scared off? Puppy asked
Puppy were you listening to our conversation? Didn’t your mother teach you that’s not polite to listen to other people’s conversation? Mrs. Crabby snorted
I’m sorry I didn’t mean to but you were talking kina a bit loud so it was hard for me not to listen Puppy mumbled
Puppy have you ever gone to the mountains behind the shore? Mrs. Crabby asked
Well never do cause there’s an old mean fire dragon who will eat anyone who dares to enter the mountains Princess answered and it will eat you too if you try
But if nobody has actually never gone there how do you know its true? Puppy asked
Puppy you shouldn’t ask so many questions there just is! Princess answered
Puppy walked away trying to make sense of what she just heard
I bet there really is no dragon I bet those two old ladies just made up that stupid story. Because they were upset that I interrupted their dumb conversation Puppy
frowned. Tomorrow morning I’m going up to those mountains and see for myself if there’s any dragon living there
So the next morning after an early breakfast Puppy asked her mother if she could go explode ring
Okay Puppy but don’t go to far her mother smiled
Puppy walked and walked for a very long time until she reached the entrance that led towards the mountains. She started to get a little nervous
What if there really is a dragon? And he wants to eat me what am I going to do then? She thought to herself. For a second Puppy wanted to turn around and go back home. But a little nagging voice inside her head urged her to go on. Shortly she started to climb the mountain until she reached the top
Finally I made it boy I can see the whole shore from up here!
Puppy was feeling proud of herself when she suddenly remembered why she climbed the mountain in the first place
So far so good no sign of any dragon I knew there wouldn’t be
It was getting late Puppy knew that she had to go back before her mommy started wondering where she was. She was half way down when she tripped over a lose rock and fell
Oh wow! That was some fall are you okay? A soft-spoken voice asked. Puppy slowly opened her eyes and cried out
Oh my god! I’m so sorry miss dragon I never meant to climb your mountain without permission. And if you don’t eat me I promise never to do it again!
The dragon just stared at Puppy for a moment then burst out laughing
I’m not going to eat you why would you think something like that?
Puppy was very scared as she repeated the story that she had heard the day before at the market. And after she finished she was certain that the dragon would eat her then. But the dragon just laughed even harder
What’s your name little one?
Well it’s very nice to meet you Puppy I’m Joy why don’t you climb on my back and I’ll take you down the rest of the way. Puppy seemed hesitant to move
Its okay Cookie I promise not to eat you on the way down Joy laughed. Puppy slowly climbed on her back and soon they both were joking and laughing as they slid the rest of the way off the mountain
Wow! That was fun! Puppy cried once they reached the entrance. But I better go my mommy is probably having a cow not know where I am
I’m sure she’s Joy agreed I hope that you come back and visit me sometimes. I do get a bit lonely up here having no one to play with
Oh I’ll and Joy I don’t why they talk so bad about you you’re one of the nicest dragons I’ve ever met!
Joy laughed I thought I was the only dragon you’ve met so far. But to answer your question Puppy my grandma taught me a long time ago that no one could ever tell by just hearing about someone or seeing them what they’re really like or what they feel. I’ve been living inside these mountains for many years now and just because one person spread some false story about me. The rest of the town chose to believe it I’m sure they must have their reasons why they do. I just learned how to live with it. I guess they aren’t as brave as you were to come out here and judge for yourself then to just believe what’s been said about me. Now get before your mommy really tans that little butt of yours!
Puppy waved goodbye to Joy then took off running up the path that led her back to the shore. She got home just before nightfall
Puppy where have you been young lady I’ve been worried sick about you her mother frowned. Puppy quickly told her about her new adventure and about meeting Joy
Wow! It sounds like you had a very busy day but next time just let me know where you’re going okay?
Okay Puppy answered kissing her face all over
Okay, okay her mommy laughed I’ll tell you what tomorrow after you do all your chores. Why don’t we take a panic basket and some of your friends to meet Joy. I’ll even ask Mrs. Crabby and Princess to come with us I’m sure once they all meet your new friend. They’ll be more careful about what they say and what they chose to believe
