Damp and Waffles hurtled and chased through the inky, starry skies, using the moon to throw the shadowy shapes onto the lands below. They fell in a tangled, tumbling heap of scales, talons and tails, with a burst of flames as they winded themselves. Both knew what they needed to do nextů eat! They were urgently, ferociously ravenous, as only young dragons can be. United in their roar they soared towards the hamlet of humans, wings beating, talons stretched towards their target. Their eyes narrowing as they scanned the streets below. Rough tongues licking scaly scarlet lips. Their prey? Pizza!
