Flying Dragon #Sunday Photo Fiction


Small town was buzzing with excitement. The advertisement on radio, television and on street corner hoardings promised unveiling of a replica of the great ancient flying dragon. 

Come have a look; take a picture” the advertisement said, “entry fee minimum; children and seniors free.”

What in god’s name is this thing?” A asked his friend V looking at the replica of a giant prehistoric flying creature, “what does this stand for?

This is a part of our history and culture,” answered V, “ this flying dragon symbolises our monetary prowess and military might.”

Money I can understand,” A answered, “why else anyone waste so much money on this ugly monster; but military, I doubt!”

You will never understand,” V scoffed, “this flying dragon avoids detection by radar.”

Why do I need this?” A asked, “when I can simply send a precision missile and destroy these dragons from a distance?”

These boys are raising too many questions?” observed an event manager, “break them up.”

You boys take your picture and keep moving” a stern looking security incharge intervened, “there are others waiting.” 

With a sigh, friends exited the show.
