Jane Jago’s Daily Drabble – Two Hundred and Sixty-Seven

When the traveller had his pleasure, he indicated that the girl might leave.

“There is money on the chest by the door. Take a coin for your trouble.”

He watched her, curious to see what value she placed on her favours.

She took the smallest coin.

“Wait,” he said, “I would know why you value yourself so low.”

She actually smiled. “I won’t be keepin’ your coin. Innkeeper will have it from me as soon as I get downstairs. I don’t see why you should pay ‘un twice.”

It is unwise to cheat a dragon, as the innkeeper soon discovered.
