I wrote this based upon a dialogue prompt I saw. The prompt was just the first two lines of dialogue. I wanted to make it as funny as possible. It's not meant to be too great.

“Why is there a dragon in my fridge!?”

“It was hot.”  Maya looked down at her four year old son, questioningly. 

“Ayden, what have I said about bringing the dragons inside?” she asked him.  The adorable, brunet boy smiled sheepishly.

“You said I’m not supposed to bring them in,” he responded quietly.  “But uncle Joshy said I could.”  The twenty-three year old woman groaned.  Of course Joshua would be behind this.  She stomped over to the staircase of the house and placed a hand on her hip.

“Joshua!  Get down here, now!” she yelled.  A blond-haired, brown eyed teenager trudged down the steps. 

“What do you want?” he whined, staring at his phone. 

“Would you care to explain to me why my fridge is void of anything except for an adolescent sized dragon!?” she screeched.  Joshua’s head shot up quickly. 

“Ayden was worried about it getting too hot outside, so I helped him clean out the refrigerator and get it in there,” he explained.  Maya pinched the bridge of her nose in frustration before grabbing both boys by their hands and leading them outside to where the dragons were kept. 

“Do you see these?” she queried the two, gesturing to massive pools of a thick, coolant type substance.  “We have dragon cooling pools.  These are specifically made to cool the dragons off.  We bought them so that we wouldn’t need to resort to shoving them into my refrigerator.  Remember?”  The two boys nodded silently.  Ayden ran up and hugged Maya’s legs.

“I’m sorry, Mommy.  I didn’t mean to make you sad,” he said.  Maya patted his back. 

“I know, sweetie, but you and Uncle Josh are going to get the dragon out of the fridge, clean the fridge, and put all the food back into it,” she informed them.  Joshua sighed unhappily and took the small boy’s hand, leading him to the kitchen.  A few minutes later, the forest green dragon scampered outside and found it’s mother.  Maya walked across the backyard, shaking her head, and leaned against a sleek, black dragon female. 

“Joshua is terrible at obeying you,” the dragon spoke.  The human mother rolled her eyes and patted the dragon’s back. 

“Trust me, Onyx, I know.  It’s so aggravating,” she replied.  Onyx snorted and turned her head to face Maya.

“Want me to burn him a little bit?  Not enough to hurt.  Just enough to singe his eyebrows and make him look ridiculous?” she asked.  Maya laughed loudly.  It actually didn’t sound like an awful idea.

“I might just take you up on that offer.”
