1. Dragon's Gold

Dragon's Gold

Smaug shifted restlessly as the sharp edge of a golden goblet pressed into his side.   The discomfort roused him from dreams of gold, jewels and treasure, and he opened a bleary eye, surveying his hoard with avaricious pride.  Gems glittered brightly; sapphires shone with inner light.  Cups of gold and silver dotted the mound – slightly dented where he had lain on them, but what did that matter?

Satisfied that all was well, he rearranged himself more comfortably on the pile of treasure, and settled back to sleep.  It was his, all his, and no-one would dare take it from him.

Hi Jay!

Ah, just re-read Dragon's Gold -- and it brought a huge grin to my face!

Smaug is so smug here... it makes me want to send a hobbit, a rabble of dwarves and a doughty bowman his way!

And I love the detail about the cups being slightly dented! LOLOL!

Well done!

Thanks for the comment - I'd almost forgotten about this drabble!

Poor Smaug - that hobbit and his companions are on their way right now, so he won't have much longer to gloat over his horde.
