I expanded rapidly as I surged out of the computer case, from my lair next to the cozy power supply, and found Larry packing a suitcase.
“What are you doing, Larry? Are you leaving, or what?” I breathed a bit of fire, as that relieves anxiety for me. My eyes blazed green.
“Yeah, Demon,I’m taking a bus to Arizona tomorrow.”
“Why didn’t you tell me? Can I come along?”
“I certainly am not going to buy you a bus ticket! I don’t think the driver would let you on, anyway. They have rules about large winged reptiles riding buses. It alarms the other passengers and makes the kids cry. You can fly, after all!”
“But it’s so far away! All of the way across the Great Plains!”
“Just take your time. You can feed upon jackrabbits and armadillos along the way.”
I was feeling sulky and pouted.
“Well, okay…” I said, and retreated back into my lair. I spend most most of my time sleeping there.
