Rhyonna sees Majestic, a gold green dragonfly intently buzzing around here and then there. Then right before her is the dragonfly, who stares directly at Rhyonna.
"Hello, Majestic! What a wondrous day."
Majestic pops, pauses his wings, and floats in the air, answering, "Incredibly wonderful!"
"Have you seen Keegan? I was to meet him here in the daisies."
"Dearest, Keegan near the lake. Rhyonna, best flyer, a race today?"
"Yes, a race to the lake."
Practice racing dragonflies makes Rhyonna the best flyer in her village. Her friend, Majestic, does not fly in a straight line, only zigzags up and down and pivoting around. Rhyonna faces the giant dragonfly, not knowing which direction he will take.
Majestic flies under Rhyonna, then he is off toward the lake. A round into a somersault in mid-air Rhyonna pivots. Clasping her hands above her head, Rhyonna pulls her wings in, lifting up. Her second pull catches Majestic. Of course, the giant dragonfly pops straight up into the sky. Rhyonna pulls in her wings, pivots into another somersault, pushes her wings out, taking all her strength to push against the air, and then pulls in her wings. With several pushes and pulls, Rhyonna flies beside Majestic, who, of course, pops and turns left. Rhyonna pulls her arms and wings to her sides, pivots left in the air, and then pushes the air by fluttering her wings up and down fast. Rhyonna catches Majestic, who turns to face Rhyonna, then dives down, down, disappearing deep in the haze around the lake.
Rhyonna takes a huge breath, tucking her wings at her sides, and then dives down into the enchanting haze to Majestic. His metallic gold-green colors reflect light. The giant dragonfly perches on a willow branch over the water, quietly waiting. Rhyonna stops her dive by pivoting upward, opening her wings, and pushing against the air to stop.
"You caught me, best of flyers."
"Majestic, you waited for me to find you."
"Yes! Must tend my places."
Majestic spreads his wings, pops, and disappears with a deep buzz into a haze of light.
