Diff the Dragon by Angela Lott, illustrations by Richard Bartrop. An Okal Rel Universe Legacy Novella featuring the young Alivda
Angela Lott is the middle child of Lynda’s three daughters. She did two years of Business schooling at the College of New Caledonia and is now working as a receptionist at her local FYiDoctors. In her spare time she enjoys writing, video blogging, reading and watching very nerdy TV shows.
Years passed and Alivda turned ten. Perry was still employing Korbin and Amel still dropped by as often as he could, but things were changing for Alivda.
She was fully grown now, even though she was only ten, and she had already decided that one day she would get Amel like she had Korbin.
“Oh, come one!” Alivda whined. “Just one more time!”
“I am not tired!” Alivda said. “And if you sleep I will be bored!”
“Tough!” Korbin said. “Night.” And he rolled over and closed his eyes.
Alivda got out of bed, not bothering to pull a sheet around her naked body as she did so.
Grandma Perry didn’t know how she was enjoying her babysitter and Alivda wanted to keep it that way.
After she got dressed she went to the kitchen and got herself something to eat.
Alivda knew that she could have played the you-are-my-babysitter card to get Korbin to stay awake, but she had hated using that card since they had started lying together.
So instead she decided to go to the practice area and see if anyone was there.
