Dragon Trouble (part 3)
By Mary Lynn Bushong

1     The men wanted to see the dragon, so Mara was sent to fetch him. Warbret waited for Mara behind the house. "What are you doing here?" she asked as she rubbed his armored nose with the palm of her hand.
2     Warbret warbled in his throat to her, and she understood his concern about the crowd.
3     "They had me worried, too," said Mara. "I think the worst is over now, and they want to meet you. Well, most of them do, but one doesn't. I think he might be afraid of you. Try not to scare them. You dragons need all the help you can get."
4     Warbret pushed her with his nose, and Mara took that as agreement. Together they walked around the side of the cottage with her hand resting on his neck.
5     Silence hung heavily like a wet curtain over the crowd. Some of the men stepped back involuntarily as the two approached. As soon as Warbret was close enough, Montrose stepped forward.
6     "Hello, Warbret. Thank you for coming. These men wanted to meet you."
7     Warbret warbled a greeting in his throat.
8     Tom Baker swallowed hard and stepped forward. "H-How are you, Warbret?" he asked and stuck his hand out like he was going to pet a dog and then jerked it back.
9     "It's okay," said Mara softly. "He doesn't mind if you touch him."
