Coffee dragon.

It seems that my scaly little diva is having a pout moment.  or day.  or week. I merely mentioned to skosh, in an offhand  manner, that he would probably return to the nest as soon as my leg tendons healed and I could walk safely unaided by a shapeshifter leg.  he got a thoughtful, somewhat glazed look on his..umm…face? and flew off my leg and under the coffee table.  It seems that he was thinking  with alarm  that he would have to give up his cushy lifestyle, from being the Only Dragon in the house to being only one of many, all different ages and sizes and somewhat crowded into the nest, jostling for sleeping room.  Here, he has his own cushion, can have almost anything he wants to eat without parental interference (he is particularly partial to raw chicken livers and strawberry gravy), and of course there are his beloved ipod shuffle and  gamedragon to consider.

He fears the new hatchlings would either eat them or turn them into weapons for mock knight-fighting. So.  Under the coffee table to protest his imminent departure from his haven.  He much prefers to stay with us, and is not reticent in letting us know that returning to the crowded, noisy nest does not meet with his approval. this is not a new thing, at one point in our lives I am sure we have all hidden under one table or another.  However, as a general rule, we do not become PART of said table.  Being a shapeshifter however, it was second nature to skosh and he did indeed become half dragon, half table and left enough of his claws out to seize the legs tightly so we couldn’t shift him.

This was about three days ago and I have had to bring him his strawberries under the table….as well as his gamedragon and his…well.  you understand.  My pitiful limping and whimpering pleas for him to come out and help me have had no effect.  I am not  so cruel as to refuse him sustenance until he has to come out and shift back to open the fridge, therefore it seems I have a coffee dragon until he chooses to listen to reason.  I fear that nothing but  a promise of permanent adoption will bring things back to whatever passes for normal in our home.

At the very least he will not lack for reading matter….I have an endless supply of coffee table books.
