Dragon Buffet...

Greely sipped at the cup of hot cocoa and nibbled on the toast Erol had placed in front of her before he’d returned to the buffet for more food.  He’d already been gone ten minutes and she couldn’t help the niggling worry, whispering to her that she should have gone with him to keep him out of trouble.  This was a Vegas casino buffet and should have enough food to feed several hungry men, but would they have enough to satisfy one ravenous dragon?

Ravenous was a good word for her man. After getting a look at her new ink the night before, Erol had all but picked her up and carried her back to their room.  He’d closed them in and taken her over.  She’d been consumed by his lust, his love and his heat.  She’d found jackpot after jackpot in this city of sin and none of them had anything to do with money.

“Now there’s a story behind that blush, for sure.  Spill it, sister.”
Greely smiled as Karma threw her camo and combat boot shod body into the chair across the table and laid the do tell eye on her.  “I don’t know what you’re talking about, my dear.”

“Oh the hell you don’t.  You ditched me on the strip with some promise of meeting me in two hours’ time, but never showed up at the predetermined time…”

“Oh Karma I’m so sorr…”

“Don’t interrupt… Thank Goddess! This town is about sin, baby and that man, er, food disposal…how much is he going to eat?”

Greely turned to watch Erol stride purposefully their way.  In his arms was a tray stacked with three plates, heaping with food.

“Anyway, that scaly relic is made for sin.  Now, be a good girl and don’t Bogart all the dirty deets.”

Greely laughed at Karma’s wiggly eyebrow, knowing she’d not be telling her any of the private details.  “Sorry, my dear, some things aren’t meant to share.”

“Share what?” Erol barked as he set the mountains of food on the table.

“The nitty gritty, scaly.   From last night, you know, sinful decadence that I can learn from in case I should find my very own dragon slinking around sin city.”

“You won’t.” Erol said in his no nonsense way. “I’m the only dragon in town right now.”

“You know this how?” Karma chuffed.

“I can sense when other dragons are close by.”

“No way.”

“Yep, and I also double as a one-armed bandit, the good kind that is, I just keep giving and giving and giving.  Right, Fair one?”

Greely nearly slid out of her chair as Erol’s gaze swung her way, hot and dirty, like it was last night as he took her to the moon and back, repeatedly. “Ah…Jackpot.”

“YES!” Erol jumped from his seat and barreled back to the buffet.  The words “more bacon” echoed in his wake.

Karma and Greely looked at each other and laughed in a way one only did in Vegas as they nibbled at the sweets still remaining on Erol’s plates.
It seems Sin City is starting to agree with Erol or it's that he's satisfying all of his appetites in a city that never sleeps.

Happy Weekend!

Did Erol just make a joke???

Serena Shay said...

LOL...yep, he did! There's just something about Vegas, baby. :D

Savanna Kougar said...

Even sin city with its breakfast buffet may not be able to feed another dragon with Erol's appetite... food, I mean... lol!

Glad Greely is having such a good time with lots of 'jackpots!'.

Wish I was there with my own dragon. ~wicked grin~

Love the phraseology! "Taken her over" -- that conjures all sorts of images. And "laid the do tell eye on her." What are you, lady, a writer or something?

And if the food gets cold he can just heat it up. :)

Serena Shay said...

Nope, Savanna, there's not nearly enough food on that buffet to satisfy two dragons. Heck, there might not even be enough for one like Erol. Hopefully, Greely and Karma can get a handle on him before questions arise about the man who emptied the breakfast buffet all on his own. ;)

Serena Shay said...

Thanks Pat! The do tell eye is totally Karma. She was acting all sassy with me this morning and nothing else could quite describe her. ;)

Don't you love when your characters start acting up. hehe

LOL...Erol in human form spraying heat over his food from his nose and/or mouth. That would be a sight to see...Oh God, Erol would do it too. Let's all be quiet about it since he's sleeping right now. They can't leave Vegas quite yet. :D

Savanna Kougar said...

Erol better watch it... if the right someone gets a smoke-smelling wind about what he is, they just might want to capture a dragon, make him an act in Vegas???

Serena Shay said...

Too right you are, Savanna! Erol on display would not be a good thing. However, how would a human actually hold a dragon captive?

I can only think of two ways right now, fear and abuse to keep the dragon submissive or magically blessed chains. Hmmm, I'm going to have to give that idea some thought...

Pat C. said...

And Zigfried and Roy thought tigers were a problem.

Savanna Kougar said...

Lots of dark forces lurking in the underbelly of sin city...

Serena Shay said...

Hehe...Erol could take care of that tiger problem in a couple of swift chomps. :D

Rebecca Gillan said...

Not a good idea to let Sigfried and Roy see him. They love collecting unusual acts and are sly enough to find a way to make Erol think it was all his idea.

Serena Shay said...

Oooh, true enough, Rebecca. Good thing then that Erol has Greely and even Karma at his back. I wouldn't want to mess with those two. ;)
