You've got Dragon Feet
I laid in my room and then I
Heard the door knocking rapidly
TAP, TAP ,TAP, making a thunderous
sound, like a dragon. I wondered who could
it be that is knocking, the door so LOUD and endlessly?
I was taken aback and I did not
move, nor answer the door as I
was sure this wasn’t a normal
knock. I pulled my coverlet over
my head to drown out the sound.
I shook like a leaf wondering who this monster could be.
Then! I heard footsteps on the kitchen
floor my heart sunk , because It sounded
just like dragon feet, it came in and I made
sure I kept quiet as can be least
the dragon feet hears me and come
The foot steps began to dwindle away as though
he/she had moved towards the living room.
Then suddenly I heard heavy dragon feet mounting the stairs.
BRAM! BRAM! BRAM!
The whole house shook like an earth quake.
While I quivered and shivered
downstairs. Afraid that those dragon feet
may come right through the flooring and
land on me.
How scary that would be I listened for more sounds but dragon feet seemed to have
settled somewhere upstairs. I got brave enough and shouted is someone there? Yes a voice replied, who is It I yelled? It’s your uncle my dear.
I was relieved! I let out a SIGH!
and shouted you’ve got dragon
feet…… WHAT!! I said you’ve
got dragon feet you know….
