May Flowers Monster 20
For many days it rained on Splotch Monster Island, as gray clouds filled the skies above. It rained so much, it seemed as if the sun would never show its face ever again. Hope the dragon relied on the sun’s rays to power her dorsal fins, which in turn gave her the energy to fly. Calling on her friends, the swallows, Hope knew these birds could make good things happen, and before long they were. Soon the sun’s rays began to appear once more, as the swallows flew through the clouds, piercing them with their small but mighty beaks. The sun and the rain together, made the flowers grow and bloom brilliantly throughout the land, as well as on Hope’s head - a sign that she was at full power and finally ready to take flight once again.
