Jellybean the Dragon

In the middle of a lush, green forest surrounded by apple trees, oak trees, cherry trees, lemon trees, orange trees, cedar trees, cinnamon trees, banyan trees, candyfloss trees and every other kind of tree that may or may not exist, stood a grey-coloured, English-style castle with four towers and a drawbridge. The drawbridge was lowered over a moat, in which grisly, snappy crocodiles were said to live. Luckily they were very shy crocodiles and therefore rarely ever seen. In fact, the townspeople often queried whether there were any crocodiles at all and wondered if this wasn’t some fib told by the castle’s owner to make them stay away.

The castle’s owner, a girl of 10 called Emma, (how she got to have the castle at such a tender age is a tragic tale and one that will be told shortly… unless I forget), was sat on a chaise longue dressed in her astronaut’s suit, sipping from a glass of freshly-squeezed orange juice. How she became an astronaut is quite an amazing story and one that I’ll tell now. Outer space, the stars, the planets, and the galaxies, fascinated Emma and so she’d attended astronaut school, where she graduated as an astronaut. Maybe it wasn’t quite such an amazing story after all.
