Ruth Blunder, the Dragon

A Fantasy Short Story
by Christopher & Samantha Windwalker

In a hole there lived a silver, fragile dragon named Ruth Blunder. Not a weathered warped, hilly hole, filled with aardvarks and a sleepy smell, nor yet a quiet, minuscule, solid hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a dragon-hole, and that means warmth.

One day, after a troubling visit from the robot Fred Walker, Ruth leaves her hole and sets out in search of three dirty bananas. A quest undertaken in the company of goblins, fairies and snowy men.

In the search for the robot-guarded bananas, Ruth Blunder surprises even herself with her intelligence and skill as a housekeeper.

During her travels, Ruth rescues a guillotine, an heirloom belonging to Fred. But when Fred refuses to try running, their friendship is over.

However, Fred is wounded at the Battle of Three Armies and the two reconcile just before Ruth engages in some serious running.

Ruth accepts one of the three dirty bananas and returns home to her hole a very wealthy dragon.
