Story Begins: 3:40

Dragon’s New Home Excerpt:

It was a usual day in the Ahway Island forest.  An orange and yellow Monarch butterfly gracefully flitted through a patch of milkweed, flitting from flower to flower as occasional clouds drifted ever so slowly through the bright blue sky. The truth was, it was a usual day for all the creatures of the forest except one: Dragon.

Today, Dragon felt different, somehow. It all started the other week, when Dragon saw a flock of geese migrating in the sky. It had never occurred to Dragon before that some creatures move their homes at different points in their lives. Dragon wondered if they should find a new home, too.
