As promised: the first #TwistedTaleTuesday post. To start things off, here’s my winning entry for Cracked Flash Fiction Competition from 14 May 2016: Dragon Flight. The prompt was: The dragon was too slow. Of course, I just love dragons. I’d blogged about them on the Thursday preceding the competition and something just clicked. I used all I knew about the different kinds of dragons and the following story was born. Enjoy.

Dragon Flight

by Ronel Janse van Vuuren

The dragon was too slow. The wyvern had already intercepted the flaming pearl and was heading to the goal post. If the blue team won again, he wasn’t going to hear the end of it. Flapping for all he’s worth, he raced after the wyvern.
