Fantasy, In Fact (89 words)

“So our valiant son slew a dragon today.”

“It’s time to get rid of those boots. They aren’t good for him.”

“Relax. What’s the harm in a little imagination? So he thinks his magic boots carry him to a world of ogres, dragons, and princesses. It’s not the end of the world. At least he doesn’t hole up in his room playing video games till midnight like most kids his age.”

“Steve.”

“Jenny.”

“I found dragon’s blood on his boots today.”

“Jenny.”

“What?”

“How do you know what dragon’s blood looks like?”

  1. So the boots do carry him to a world or ogres, dragons, and princesses? A bit more dangerous, but still better than video games. Or is he up to no good and carrying out the happenings of his make believe world in the real world? If that’s the case it’s time to lose the boots and buy a gaming system… and probably see a specialist.
