Six Sentence Sunday - November 21st

Here's another snippet from my novelette, Celestial Trigon, a free read on my website. http://www.marshaamoore.com

In this scene, Martin, a grand wizard, forces his dragon, Balteazar, to land on the grounds of the double moon celebration. He cannot find his lady. Suspecting she has been apprehended, he's in hot pursuit of her possible captors.

****
Balteazar responded to the urgent command and whipped his massive frame around to descend into the central garden clearing. Fire blazed twenty feet from his gaping mouth, scattering those below screaming into the woods. His green scales irridesced a vivid royal blue in the lunar brilliance. He mirrored his master’s anger, a fearsome sight. His eyes glowed red, nostrils flared, and razor sharp scales lifted along his spine to the tip of his powerful tail. Spewing fire, his enormous muscular legs extended down for a quick landing.
