50 Word Stories: The Firedrakes

I loved watching the firedrakes burn the clouds. The way the great beasts transformed vapour to radiant colours, light and steam touched my soul. I didn’t know why they did it, and didn’t care, they just did.
When they’d finished and our atmosphere burned, I thought differently. We all did.

Author’s Note: I took this picture last night, which inspired the story. Sometimes the sky is more beautiful than any story. Last night, it was.

  1. Love your imagination! It’s a great picture. I’ve seen the sky look like this many times, but never thought about Dragons making such scenes 😉
