Jane Jago’s Daily Drabble – Two Hundred and Two

The girl at the roadside meeting place was shivering in the icy rain. Micah reached down a hand to help her onto the wagon – only then realising she held a tiny baby to her breast. 

An hour later both were warm, dry and fed. The girl looked shyly at Micah.

“What of The Hunters?”

“Me and Eli will keep you safe.”

“What of your own safety?”

“We are safe enough.”

“But how?”

“Eli. If you please.”

If you have never been in a wagon on the back of a dragon who is showing off you have missed something entirely joyous.
