Dragon – A Drabble

Jillian stood in a dark cavern that smelled like an outhouse.
“Mister Smith.” Her wavering voice echoed against the wall of scales in the distance. “I request a loan on behalf of Lirhya.”
The dragon’s head emerged from the shadows above her. She scrambled backwards and tripped.
“Interests are 20%. Arrearage costs a virgin a week.” The dragon grinned, flashing his man-crushing teeth.
“That’s unacc—“
“Without my money, your village will burn. I’m giving those virgins a fighting chance. Literally.”
Jillian bit her lower lip and pulled herself straight. “We’ll take it.”
And buy weapons.
And win the war.
