Little brother dragon went shopping with dad. It was the biggest shopping mall little brother dragon has ever seen. He follows daddy but there are so many blinking lights and so many toys and people and animals and dragons.
Pretty soon, little dragon was no longer following daddy. The big dragon in front of him was an elderly dragon, purple not blue like daddy.
Little brother dragon wonders around a bit and finally locates a police dragon. “Officer, I’m lost! I can’t find my daddy!”
“Gibberish gibberish gibberish?!” Says the police dragon.
“Gibberish gibberish giblets!?”
This was not Dragonese that little brother dragon thought all dragon spoke. Why is this dragon police speaking Gibberish?
“Ugh!” Grunts little brother dragon, and he turns towards an old lady, “excuse me missus, could you please help me find my dad?”
“meow!!! Meeeeowwww? Meeeoooeoeoeoeooooow.” Meowed the lady dragon.
“What? What happened ? Why are you meowing in Catish?” Little brother dragon can’t believe what’s happening!
“Woof! Woof! Woooooof! Wuf woof wuf.” Barked the cashier dragon in front of whom little brother dragon now stood.
“Woof, meow, bark, Gerber Ferber” tried little brother dragon, regretting to his core that he didn’t pay more attention on the iPad app that taught foreign language.
“Gibberish gobbledygook blah Bow wow oink moo baba bark bark blergh!” Everyone talked in a complete mess of dissonant and incomprehensible unison.
Little dragon wishes this was a nightmare but it is worse than he can imagine. Has everyone gone mad? What is this different world he suddenly entered?!
Tears of terror emerge of his large dragon eyes! “Wahhhhhhhh!” He cried. In the back of his nape, he suddenly felt a tug of the string. The secret string he recently gained connecting with witch princess Alice on the other end. Little brother dragon tugs on it with his dragon whiskers.
The loudest poof little brother dragon has ever heard drown out all the barn animal sounds. Alice appeared mid-air, in her bathing suite.
Came a blood curdling witch scream that drowned out the poof that drowned out all the dragon speak.
“I’m sorry” said little brother dragon, “I need your help!”
“Please, Alice, only you can help me” mumbled little brother dragon sure he is not heard.
Alice finally fell to the ground with a grunt.
“Little brother dragon! Why have you brought me away from my shower?”
“I don’t know, I can’t understand anyone except for you. I lost my dad and I can’t find him”
“Oh.” Alice looked at little brother dragon.
“Is that… is that a party headphone on your head?”
“Party headphone, what’s that?”
Alice reaches over and pulls off a set of headphones situated around little brother dragons large dragon ears. “Party headphone translates everyone’s voice into a different foreign language.”
“Are you going to pay for that?” Asked the cashier,
“Oh you poor dear” said the old lady,
“What is you address?” Asked the police dragon,
“Oh…” Little dragon suddenly remembered the last thing daddy said to him: “don’t play with toys we have not bought!”
Alice looks at her phone and says, “there, your dad went home after he lost you, let’s go home.”
Little brother dragon put back the headphones and Alice took him home.
I will listen to my daddy from now on, thought little brother dragon… that was terrible when I didn’t.
