Donner scratched his beard; it was his turn to frown. "And what would Mistress Amethyst want with all those gold coins and jewels and things?"

Skaran turned to Amethyst. "Don't you use these guys to collect your hoard of gold stuff together then missy?"

Amethyst laughed out loud before collapsing into a cloud of hissing black smoke. She took a moment to compose herself. "Oh my Goddess! You think I hoard golden trinkets?"

"Ain't that what all dragons hoard?"

"Oh mister Skaran. You absolute dear! That's like humans hoarding mattresses and pillows! I don't hoard gold! I hoard Dragon Slayers!"

    Tah dah! It's taken me ages to get to that. 😂 Inspired by an artist going by the name "Iguana Mouth" Google "Unusual Dragon Hoards" They're absolutely brilliant. Although none of them hoard Dragon Slayers, but I thought what if you did, and where would you put them all!? 😄

    I just Googled it. My favorite was "Hoard of Panties," although I don't know why a dragon would need to hoard panties, but there you go.

    I suspect that most dragons are somewhere on the autism spectrum. It's an innate requirement "Must hoard!" I'm quite sure that some caves probably look like those flats and houses where people hoard stuff. If it's in the cave, it stays in the cave. 😅
