switching it up

A to Z challenge, theme: anatomy, day 16: P
Flash fiction, 100 words 

One year into this whole pandemic schtick, and Sheldon was over it. He had reached his limit with the loneliness, the video screens, the constant soundtrack of fear.

Sheldon knew, however, that he held opportunity in the palm of his hand. 

To anyone else, it looked like a piece of candy. He popped the bonbon in his mouth, savoring the strange flavors as it melted.

It wasn’t long before he felt his teeth growing. Then, the tail started to happen. Pretty soon, the wings popped up and flapped a little. 

Sheldon, the little red dragon, was ready for take-off.
