Dragon Tale

Tommy Tucker was five when he found the little dragon, cowering behind his Lego fire truck.

“I’ve run away.” The dragon looked left and right nervously. “They want me to learn to puff fire and I’m scared.”

“I’m scared too,” said Tommy. “I broke my tooth and Mom said I am going to the dentist today. I’m not running away. Mom said I have to be brave.” A tear hovered on his eyelashes.

“Can I come with you? Put me in your pocket and we’ll be brave together.”

And that was how the fire started at the Randburg Medical Centre.
