She’s intent on what she’s doing, and my curiosity gets the best of me. A weird feeling fists my heart. Like, what if she’s chatting with some guy at midnight as she had to me off and on for months?Easing around behind her chair on the pretext of taking the empty bottles and trash to the kitchen, I pause and feel a shocked breath leave my lungs.Instead of checking social sites on her tablet as I’d assumed, she’s drawing.A dragon with its wings spread wide. Fire shooting from its mouth and nostrils. Panicked people on the ground. It’s terrifying and beautiful.Her spine straightens, and she pauses, realizing she’s being watched. But she doesn’t turn around.Without saying anything, I move into the kitchen and trash what’s in my hand. When I return, she’s powered the device off and is removing a stretchy glove that covers her pinky and part of her hand.“It’s beautiful,” I say, as I sit on the couch.She shrugs and remains quiet, staring at the dark tablet. I am about to apologize for looking, when she raises her eyes.“What’s your dragon, Trey?”“My dragon?” I shift my gaze and my body slightly away from her bubble of space. I know what she means. After seeing the picture, the people fleeing the monster, some turning to look over their shoulder, some intent only on what’s ahead and running away, the double meaning is obvious.“Your dragon.” Lifting a foot to her chair, she leans forward, resting her chin on her bent knee. “Everyone has dragons.”“Yeah. I guess they do.”“You don’t have to tell me.” Blowing out a breath, she looks disappointed. Not upset as if she wanted my gossip. Saddened because I won’t confide in her.I understand where she’s coming from. Late at night, we had typed our secrets to one another into a cyberspace vortex. It had been easy to spill my thoughts and feelings onto a laptop keyboard, or to lie on my bed at home and speak to her on a Skype screen.I had told her a lot of stuff, including my breakup.But I had never shared my dragon.
