A little story for St George's Day

A little story for St George's Day (previously published by 81Words.net)

THE PRICE OF COURAGE:

George stood over the slain dragon, his banner fluttering in the breeze. The beast at his feet motionless.
“Oi!”
George turned to see where the angry voice had come from. “Yes? “
 “Did you kill that dragon? “
 “Yes, I did. “ George winked.
“Got a permit?” asked the man, who was a park ranger.
“Beg pardon? “
 “Do you have a permit to kill dragons out of season? “
 “Er, no. “
Sighing, the man got his fine book out.
