We are up to installment 41 of Paragon of Virtue, Fred Johnson's adventure in the Kingdom of Sunday, the story that I can't seem to finish off. Must admit I have kind of enjoyed doing a serial story, though I hope I can bring it to a happy conclusion soon. Will probably post Mr. Linky and the new words and do my exercises tomorrow. Seems to be becoming a habit.
5:45 Saturday: Well, this was not an easy task today. Imitating the walk? closet/ Armadillo? Who comes up with these words? Oops... I do. I really need to start cheating. But in any case, another week is behind me. Whew.

Words for this week's 10 word challenge were: closet, time, function, provide, prophets, reporting, necessary, changes, self-sacrificing, stimulate And for the mini: awesome, home made, imitating the walk, armadillo, startling
No sooner were the words out of his mouth, than with startling speed, the three new dragons appeared. Gregor, a medium sized dragon whose scales were an amazing turquoise blue, wore a large home made looking medallion. Noticing the wizard's eye fall on it, he blushed (as much as a dragon can blush) and said. "My youngest made it to protect me. 'It's got my love in it,' she said. Makes a father's heart almost burst with pride," he added. "As well it should, the wizard smiled. "I was there when she gave it to him." Agrivold, the smallest of the three newcomers chimed in. "Up she dashed to us, cute as can be," he said imitating the walk of the young dragon as well as his size would allow and making everyone laugh with his efforts. The last of the three chimed in. "Your daughter has greatness in her, I think." At those words, Gregor blushed yet again and said. "To hear such words from Armadillo the Awesome, is an honor indeed and I think you for your words." Armadillo laughed and responded, "I am awesome only because fate gave me great size. What she has is a heart and mind big enough to enfold the world. She does dragondom proud.... but I suppose we must wait to praise her after we have completed our task here," he replied, turning his attention to Paraphrase and the wizard. "An honor to have been called. How may we serve?"
And the 10-word:
"By the prophets," Armadillo exclaimed after the others had finished reporting on events thus far. "There's no time to waste, then, is there? I am profoundly honored to function as part of such a noble and self-sacrificing collection of heroes and heroines who are stimulating such positive changes in our kingdom. I will be glad to provide any service you deem necessary. I have always had a deep desire to do something - more than grow bigger - to merit being called "awesome." Did you know that in my youth, I lived among Lady Purist's people? They were closet "Dragon Friends" even when it was not politically popular and their children through generations untold were anointed with dragon blood at birth. I believe that Agrivold and I may be able to reach the Lady telepathically and perhaps discover her situation more clearly before we proceed. If she is well enough, perhaps she can help facilitate her own escape." "If you weren't so big, I'd hug you," the wizard exclaimed with delight. "Did you know about this, Paraphrase? I feel renewed hope and energy.".
