Mummy turned into a dragon today.
I think it's because Daddy didn't take her on his holiday. I don't think Mummy liked that Daddy was going by himself because she yelled at him from the door until his car went away. But I found it funny that Daddy took all of his clothes just for one holiday. I'm going to laugh at him about it when he comes home.
Mummy turned into a dragon just after he left. She roared and roared, screaming about how Daddy had left her. I told her that he was going to take us next time but she didn't listen. She went to the fridge and pulled out a bottle.
I didn't know what it was but I had seen brown bottles in my fairy tale books. I think it's a potion bottle. The wizards in my stories say that some potions can change you into different animals. I think that brown bottle had a special potion in it that turned Mummy into a dragon.
Mummy took a big slurp from the bottle and lay back and closed her eyes. She continued to drink from it and I sat on the floor, cross legged, waiting for something to happen. After six bottles Mummy began to change. It must have been a weak potion.
Mummy opened her eyes and they had gone red. She tried to stand up but when she did, she fell backwards onto the couch again. She changed from happy, to sad, to angry all in few minutes. Then she pulled out a small white stick from her pocket.
I thought it was a wand like the wizards in my story I have, but it was too short. Mummy put the stick in her mouth and grabbed a rectangular boxy thing. She played with the boxy thing until a flame came out of it. She then put the stick on fire.
I watched in awe as the stick's end glowed and then went out. Then Mummy, really, turned into a dragon.
Mummy moved the magic stick from her mouth and blew out a thick stream of smoke. It filled the room and it made me cough. It was just like the dragons in my book. Mummy did this over and over and I watched. The smoke was so pretty even though it smelled funny. I asked Mummy if I could have a magic fire stick but she roared at me like a dragon.
Even though I was getting in trouble I loved how cool her smoke looked and how her eyes changed colour. It was then that I decided that when I grew up, I was going to be a dragon too.
I can't wait to tell Daddy.
I think that parents don't realise the effect that they have on their kids sometimes. Things that are bad or wrong at their age or for their health, can be seen as something really cool when they are that young.

This little girl is watching her mother drink and smoke after their father leaves home. Of course, being a child, she relates her to a dragon.

Please comment. They are much appreciated!

I wonder, would the kid be the captured princess? The one that's held captive by the dragon?

I don't quite understand your question, sorry ^^;

I guess you could say that the child is like a princess. Held captive by the dragon (her mother's) enchanting smoke and supposed "magic".

I was thinking, After it. Kinda' how the mom might get all overprotective or possessive over her daughter.
