STEEL DRAGONS

‘It’s three in the afternoon and you’re listening to Gold Radio, the home of classic rock. We’re back with our special guests Steel Dragons. Great to have you here guys.’

‘Thank you. Great to be here.’

‘Thirty years since you’ve toured Australia. A lot has happened since then.’

‘Yeah, back then we were just starting out, no idea where our journey would take us.’

‘What a journey it’s been. Sex and drugs and rock ‘n’ roll. And your doing a greatest hits tour, is that right?’

‘That’s right. All our Aussie fans can finally hear the big hits.’

‘Is it right that all those years ago you had two steel dragons on stage with you?’

‘We did, wow, remember them.’

‘It got to the end of the tour and we had no money left to get back to England. We couldn’t afford to transport these huge sculptures by ship, so we sold them to a local scrapyard.’

‘Paid for our airfare home.’

‘I wonder whatever happened to them.’

SNAKE BITE

‘Put your hand in.’

Charlie hesitated and looked into the dark hole in the rock.

What was the worst that could happen? It’s just a rock, he told himself.

Legend said it was the skull of an old dinosaur. Another said medieval warriors proved their strength by striking it with their sword. Others believed it was linked to witchcraft, a dark portal to a world of spirits and ghouls.

‘Prove you’re not scared.’

Charlie took a deep breath and shoved his hand into the black crater.

The disturbed adder struck the soft flesh and buried its fangs into the invading arm.
