Somehow, despite the fact that he was nothing more than a computer chip, Pixel’s voice was filled with compassion. “To be fair, Miss Olivia, the chances of a human conquering a dragon are 582 to 1.”

“Thanks,” Olivia bit back. That’s what happens when you pour out your heart to an AI.

“I can tell that you’re still distressed. Should I prepare some hot tea?”

“Okay,” Olivia sighed as the fight slowly drained out of her. If Pixel wanted to mother her, then…well, she wouldn’t say no to some mothering right now. 

“Be safe, Trey,” she whispered. She imagined that the prayer could become a shield that would protect him from all harm. At the very least, she hoped that he would think of her and be encouraged. Maybe her words would give him just the boost of strength he needed to overcome the beast.

The next in line for my 2020 Writeober redos, “When Fiction Becomes Fact” was a fun idea for me to play with because I always imagined it taking place in modern times or even the future despite the dragon that appears in the story. I enjoyed exploring the world and the characters a bit more, and even adding a new face (even though he doesn’t have a face): Pixel the AI.

I hope you enjoy the story as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Happy reading!

When you write as much as I do, you have to take frequent breaks from sitting. A standing desk (not a whole desk, but a mini desk that will sit on top of my current desk with my laptop, keyboard, and mouse and extend upward) will allow me to continue working while maintaining that good blood flow to my brain. Thank you so much for your support that allows me to keep producing free content. God bless you! ♥️ E.J.
