The Dandy Lion (Friday Fictioneers)

A short, sharp intake of breath. Then her small features all go to work.

Eyes focus, brow furrows, and lips form a perfectly puckered pout through which her lungs can release their contents. Two fine full lungs let blow.

Ten tiny fingers tightly clutch the stem as the seeds take flight. A swirl of life illuminated by her joyous face.

My little miracle.

“Roar” she says “I’m a Dandy Lion”
