Jane Jago’s Daily Drabble – Twenty-Five

Blenkinsop Blenkinsop was a draffkul, a winged lizard, although unlike more common dragonfolk his weapon was poison, not fire. He was also lonely. He considered his options. Should he insist on purity of lineage and leave this place? Or take up the comfort offered by a very pretty female dragon who lived in his valley? Their offspring would not be pure draffkul or pure dragon, but…

He stretched to his full height exposing his vulnerable white belly to the evening sun.

He never saw the arrow that took his life. And he never knew that his species died with him.
