Little Dragon Excerpt

Shelley asked, looking at Happy expectantly. Shelley The Turtle said,"Let me ask you something son, when you practice your fire burning skills-what do you tell yourself?" "Tell myself? What do you mean?" asked Happy not understanding what his new friend was getting at. Shelley answered, "Well, maybe I should ask instead, how do you feel when you practice holding in your flame? "Oh that! I feel scared, so scared that I will fail and burn everything up!" Happy answered sadly. "Well now, I have a suggestion for you. Try feeling like you will not burn everything up. Instead tell yourself you will succeed in keeping your fire to yourself!" Shelley told him. "But I am so scared. I really don't think I can tell myself that I won't burn everything up when I know I will!" Happy argued in a worried little voice. Shelley looked at Happy's very unhappy face and said,"I have news for you Happy, and I want you to listen to me now!" Then Shelley continued to explain. "Dragons aren't the only ones who have special gifts, Happy, no, no! All of the animals were given a special gift of one kind or another. All of us had to learn how to use it wisely, just like you. You sort of have to grow into your gift, like growing up! That's why the animals need a teacher. Can you guess what my special gift is?" Shelley asked, expectantly. Happy didn't know the answer so he shook his head and just kept quiet. "Why Happy, I am a teacher!" Shelley said proudly.
