    Find words competition

    Greetings Miramagicians

    The following account was brought to me by dennis, the Post Dragon, and, as it concerns Miro, I would like to share it with you:

    Miro is sitting in Emma’s kitchen and starts picking apart Miramitsu plants that are lying in a heap on the table in front of him.

    ‘Will you stop doing that!’, Emma demands. ‘If you rip them to pieces, I can’t use them anymore for the dessert.’

    Miro heaves a deep sigh.

    With a wave of her hand, Emma sends a chair next to Miro and sits down. She squints her eyes and closely checks his overall appearance. It’s not like him to stay inside, keep still and make a long face. She lightly touches his forehead to check on his temperature. He’s as hot as lava.

    Well, of course, being a dragon, that’s what he’s supposed to be. She’d been alarmed if she had noticed any signs of chill!

    ‘OK, what’s wrong?’

    Miro shrugs his wings and looks up at her.

    ‘Dunno’, he mumbles. ‘The other dragons in my village are abroad in a race. The field fairies are having some kind of meeting about their ‘tending to the field championships’, and Colin just doesn’t stop talking about how beautiful the winter fairy is and how he plans to go searching for her. I’m tired of his lament…’

    ‘In other words, there’s no-one to play with right now and you’re bored’, Emma concludes. ‘But you can’t keep making a mess of tonight’s dinner before it’s even prepared.’

    For a moment, she taps her nose and her gaze is out of focus.

    ‘Are you any good at words?’, she wants to know from him.

    ‘Yeah, sure!’ Miro is cautious with his answer. ‘At least at speaking them.’

    Emma bursts in laughter: ‘Right you are! You hardly ever stop talking but writing isn’t one of your strong skills. We can do a ‘find words’ game, and you don’t need to write them down. I bet there are a lot of Miramagicians who’ll be happy to help you out with that.

    So, I’ll give you a word and you’ll try to make new words from its letters. Let’s see who of us does better, OK?’

    ‘Uh-huh. Any words I can think of?’, Miro wants to know.

    ‘Well, we’ll need some rules’, Emma replies. ‘As in a different well-known game, you may use any form of proper English words that can be found in a dictionary. So you could do ‘cook’, ‘cooks’, ‘cooked’, ‘cooking’…’, she starts to give some examples.

    ‘Got it’, Miro nods.

    ‘However, names of people and places are out’, Emma goes on.

    ‘OK, so ‘city’ and ‘mum’ are out?’

    ‘Nah, those are fine. But your mum’s name would be out. And also ‘London’ or ‘Ohio’’, she explains. ‘And each word must be made of at least 4 letters.’

    ‘Pff. That’s mean. So ‘I’, ‘me’ and ‘Miro’ are all out’, Miro pouts.

    ‘Well, my dear, it’s not just about you.’ Emma smiles at him. ‘I’m sure you’ll come up with plenty more ideas. And you could also visit the villages and ask the Miramagicians for help!’

    Miro jumps into the air and narrowly misses the lamp. He wildly flutters his wings and in a split second, he’s vanished through the door.

    BANG!

    ‘Ouch.’

    Miro pops his head back into the kitchen.

    ‘Sorry, caught your coat hanger from the hallway with the wing tip in my flip turn… I think I’ll need some time to check on the Miramagicians in all those villages and collect their words’, he tells Emma.

    ‘That’s fine, love. One day should be long enough, don’t you think?’

    ‘One day??? Do you want me to break my neck going hyperspeed?’, Miro exclaims.

    ‘Of course not! Well, then what about two days – it still should be a challenge’, Emma suggests.

    Miro nods. His sort of race, that was going to be great!

    ‘Ready, steady, go!’, in the blink of an eye, he soars out of the kitchen again.

    BANG!

    ‘Ugh. Drat!’

    Once again, Miro returns to the kitchen, looking puzzled.

    ‘Sorry, Emma! I tried to stop but the air in your house is really glitchy… WHICH word are we taking the letters of??’

    ‘Since you almost ruined them - what about ‘MIRAMITSU’?’, Emma suggests.

    Miro’s face splits into a wide grin: ‘We can do loads of words with these letters. You’re going to lose big, Emma!’

    And whooshing down the hallway, he’s finally out of the house and leaves Emma to her chores.
