Zoey's been home resting since her accident. She was starting to feel better and she had a new plan. She had her heart set on meeting the new neighbors in the old stone house. Her best friend Duece was up and walking again and her cousin Chloe was staying for the summer. Life was looking good.

It was time to put the plan into action

After breakfast Zoey decided to present her plan to mom. She had Chloe there to back her up. She laid the whole plan out for mom. She started at the beginning and by the time she was done mom had agreed to bake a cake for the new neighbors. It was going to be a double layer cake with cherries on top. Mom made the best cakes so it would be perfect. Then Zoey told her that she thought they should go as a group to welcome the neighbors. There was safety in numbers so that was probably a really good idea. Chloe said she would go and Bernard agreed under protest. He would much rather be reading a book. Zoey called Duece and he was coming. He still had a limp but the swelling in his leg had gone down. He didn't want to miss this for anything.

Shopping for a new dress

While the cake was cooling Zoey talked mom into going to the little dress shop in town. She wanted to make a good impression on the neighbors and needed something new to wear. Mom agreed because she still felt bad about Zoey's mishap and the trip to the hospital. By the time they'd left the dress shop Zoey had two new summer dresses. She'd picked out a beautiful yellow sun dress and a pink festive dress for celebrations. Meeting the new neighbors was a celebration for Zoey so she was going to wear the pink dress. She was so excited. Today was the day she would finally complete her mission. When they got home mom frosted the cake and Chloe put the cherries on top. They would soon be walking down to the old stone house.

Duece arrives

Duece's mom dropped him off in Zoey's driveway. He was still limping so giving him a ride seemed like a good idea. Duece knocked on the door and waited for Zoey to open the door. The first thing he noticed was that she might be up and walking around but she had a fair amount of bruises to show for her mishap. She was also wearing the pinkest dress Duece had ever seen. He didn't say a word because to comment on Zoey's outfit would be to bring wrath down upon his head. Duece just walked in the kitchen and sat down to wait for everyone to get ready.

Strength in numbers.

Chloe went to her room to change her clothes. She wanted to look nice when she met the new neighbors. Zoey neglected to tell her cousin that mom thought the house was haunted. It was best to keep that little secret to herself. The extent that Bernard was willing to get ready was to put his book down. He really didn't want to take time away from his studies but Zoey was insisting like she always did about everything. Zoey was dressed in some sort of pink get up that made her look like a neon light. Mom looked very nice. She was dressed in a beautiful summer dress with sandals and a summer hat. Duece couldn't believe that mom had agreed to meet the new neighbors. She had insisted for weeks that the house had ghosts. Now they were all going into the unknown. How was Bernard supposed to protect everyone. He had some garlic in his pocket just in case. Garlic was supposed to be for vampires but maybe it would protect them from ghosts too. What was this neighborhood turning into anyway. He had a bad feeling about this. They all walked out the door together and turned toward the old stone house. Duece thought it was good that they were all going together. He'd always heard there was strength in numbers. Duece was again questioning his sanity. Why oh why did he agree to come on this little jaunt. He should be home where he belonged.

the little dragon leads a pretty normal life, having a mother than can cook a cake like that.

I wonder how big these dragons are, it's a lovely kitchen for a dragon's mother to fire up her oven in.

LOL, enjoyable story-line, Nancy

Spirited, thanks for reading my fantasy story. Zoey's parents are human. LOL She's been adopted and she does think she is human but she's definitely a little pink dragon. I think she has my temperament. LOL
