"Oh!" Penny gasped, realizing that she had somehow managed to stumble into an educated dragon, one that read books, particularly ones written by humans. It was entirely strange but at the same time, quite fascinating. "I had no idea!" She realized after the fact that it was likely a stupid utterance and that this dragon would likely question her own intelligence but her shock was making it difficult to think clearly, never mind speak coherently.
Penny was doubly surprised that the dragon seemed to enjoy the same kind of stories she did. "I love fairy tales!" Penny confessed, looking at Era with a new kind of wonder. "They're my favorite. I enjoy reading very much, actually. I like all kinds of stories."
