The Girlfriend and the Pet

The next morning, I woke up to the smell of bacon and... waffles? Totally forgetting about the odd occurrences from the day before, I bolted down the stairs to find the source of the heavenly smells wafting up to my room.

The funny looking creature seemed to like Winston more than me, but when I announced that breakfast was ready, it sat by my feet and cooed at me instead of her. I sat a plate next to the green and violet dragon that was piled high with raw and cooked bacon and a single egg on top.
