Microfiction challenge #23: Dragons’ egg

I know, it isn’t a painting, but it’s a sculpture so we’re still in the realm of the plastic arts. I couldn’t resist it. The expression on the proud parents’ faces! However, these are dragons, let’s not get too carried away with anthropomorphism. Perhaps there’s a sinister motive behind the gesture. What if it isn’t their egg at all? What is he intending to do with it? Boiled or poached? Write me a story based on the sculpture and post the link in the comments before next Thursday. I’m looking forward to reading a lot of dragon stories 🙂
