“When will it rain?” asked a young-looking girl to a distant and bemused boy sitting in a large pasture.
“I’m waiting-”
“For what?”
“The sky to fall” said the boy.
“You mean rain?” replied the girl in an exasperated tone.
“No, I mean the whole sky just coming down”
“Why in all things sane would that happen!?”
“Because my dream is up there…”
“Your dream” stated the girl in a disbelieving voice.
“Yes, A miniature silver dragon whisked it away last night while I was sleeping and hid it up there” The boy sadly said as he pointed up.
“That’s ridiculous. Dragons don’t exist; and everyone knows that dreams aren’t real.”
“How do you know?”
“What do you mean, ‘how do I know’? Everyone knows. It’s just common knowledge!”
The boy sighed and then went on to say “Haven’t you ever tried to prove something to yourself…ever? It’s unintelligible to always rely on information that isn’t verifiable. Because dragons haven’t been seen by anyone that you’ve ever heard of, doesn’t mean you should adopt their attitude.”
