May Flowers Monster 13
Mallard the duck always wanted to pick a flower off the back of Lucky the dragon, whose flora was known to have healing powers. On this particular day, Mallard wasn’t feeling very well and asked for a flower from Lucky, in hopes he’d feel better. Lucky asked if Mallard could teach her how to quack, in exchange for a flower. Mallard did his best but his voice was hoarse and needed a rest. Lucky soon realized she needed to give the poor duck a flower first, if he was to quickly heal from his cold, then he could teach her how to quack. Besides, it was the right thing to do. After a while, Lucky didn’t see Mallard at all, until she spotted him tending to his newly-hatched ducklings near the big lake. At that very moment, Lucky knew that Mallard being well again was the best reward both of them could have ever gotten, in exchange for the healing flower.
