EP Flash: Mount Dragon

By Vera Nazarian.
Read by Stephen Eley.

“Go to hell, idiot,” I said, using an astringent tongue he’d understand. “I am but a monumental slab of granite, and you, mortality, are like one of the droppings of a fairly large corpulent deity–an ephemeral honor I would rather pass me by.”

“And yet, you speak to me, mountain,” said the mote of humanity. “Why is that?”

I considered that for a moment. The creature had a point.

“I don’t know,” I replied honestly.


Rated PG. Contains some profanity. Paradigms may shift without warning.

Ooh, genre-bending!  As the story was going I was going to note a quibble about the "ancient language" sounding a lot like German, but since it wasn't the time period it first appeared to be, that quibble went away.  Very cool!
