"The dragon in my pocket" by Haley Ryan
It said, "Hello, little one. I have waited a long time to meet you."
I said something really intelligent, like, "Oh."
"You see," the dragon responded, "you are my rider. That is why I appeared in your pocket."
"Um. Yeah. Okay," I said. "My name is Haley. And yours?"
The dragon's eyes twinkled with amusement. "My name is Thalia," she replied.
"Well, I thought this next year would be boring. But now I'm the rider of a dragon."
Thalia replied, "So perhaps it will be a happy New Year, after all."
