Defeating Dragons

I remind myself that ALL dragons can be defeated…

The creature laughed scornfully. “I,” it said, “am frightened of nothing.”

“Nothing?”

“Nothing,” it said.

Charlie said “Are you extremely frightened of nothing?”

“Absolutely terrified of it,” admitted the Dragon.

“You know,” said Charlie “I have nothing in my pockets. Would you like to see it?”

“No,” said the dragon uncomfortably, “I most definitely would not.”

There was a flapping of wings like sails, and Charlie was alone on the beach. “That,” he said “was much too easy.”
