Part 8

“Waiting for Amel,” Alivda was saying to a little girl who was older than her but half her height.

“You know Amel!” the little girl said.

“We’re like this,” Alivda said, holding up her crossed fingers.

“Really!” The girl's eyes were as big as saucers. Alivda enjoyed how famous her special friend was. But no matter how kind he was to everyone else, she still knew she was special to him. He only had one baby dragon.

Alivda nodded.

“Can you introduce me?”

“He’s mine,” Alivda said. The girl frowned at her like she didn't know if that was a yes or a no.

The two of them were sitting outside looking up at the clouds. They had only been at it for a few minutes, but Alivda was already bored.

“Let’s run,” Alivda said.

“Mommy told me to stay,” the little girl said.

“Mommy isn’t here,” Alivda grinned and took off.

The little commoner girl didn’t try to keep up. She went back inside the house. Boring.

Alivda stopped running after a while and turned around. She couldn’t see the house anymore. She didn’t know which way was back to where Amel would know to get her.

“Uh oh!” she said out loud.

“Uh oh is right,” came a familiar voice.

“AMEL!” Alivda said and ran to him.

He scooped her up in his arms and spun her around.

“Do you want to see where I live?” Amel asked.

“Yes, yes, yes!” Alivda said.
