Lovely glade in the wood. Tea table with tea cups and tea pot on it. Near are little armchair and sofa.
Dragon sits near table.
DRAGON: Tea time, lovely time. Tea time, lonely time. How bored I am to spend all time alone. I ask everyone for tea, but when they look at me, they didn't say yes or no, they run away from me. I said please. Said, nice to meet you. They run.
In morning I asked bee for tea. I don't expect it came to me. Bee could fly, it even doesn't need to run.
Sound of bee.
DRAGON: It couldn't be. I am wrong. The bee will came to tea.
Little bee sits on the cup.
BEE: I came to tea. It was so nice you ask me.
DRAGON: I'm glad you came. Here is tea.
BEE: It's nice. A lot of friends you have invite to tea?
DRAGON: I did invite a lot, but rarely they have time to came.
BEE: Next time I will bring honey with me.
DRAGON: Next time?
BEE: Yes. Next time, when you'll invite me to the tea.
DRAGON: If I invite you one more time, you'll came?
BEE: Yes. With fresh honey to make sweet tea.
DRAGON: I will invite you. Now have a tea.
BEE: Delicious tea, like flowers which I visit today.
DRAGON: Perhaps we choose the same roots.
BEE: Of course, because we met.
DRAGON: I'm glad that you came. It's good when you have someone to talk.
BEE: Agree completely. All day just bees, it's boring.
DRAGON: Maybe. But I wish to try.
BEE: I have to fly, for not so long have your time.
DRAGON: It was my pleasure to spend this time with you. I'll wait for you tomorrow, for tea.
BEE: I'll fly.
Bee flies away, Dragon waves.
DRAGON: Finally, such lovely day. I have a friend. Now I'll have tea with bee.
Dragon takes one cup and exits.
On stage enters little boy, Carl.
CARL: I am not lost. I knew it. People are near. I was right. Table with tea, lovely to see. I will prove to Ned that my way was shortest.
I think owner wouldn't mind if I taste some tea. I'm thirsty.
Carl sits on sofa and makes himself tea.
Dragon returns, sees new guest. Carl at beginning talks not looking with whom he talks.
DRAGON: Lovely afternoon, I should admit.
CARL: Nice. I agree.
DRAGON: How is tea?
CARL: Amazing, thank you. I was thirsty and made a cup.
DRAGON: I am glad.
CARL: But I prefer with honey.
DRAGON: Bee promised to bring honey tomorrow.
DRAGON: Bee will return tomorrow.
CARL: Today already was a visit.
DRAGON: I am afraid you miss a bee for few moments.
Carl turns his head and stares at the Dragon, Dragon smiles.
CARL: A Dragon!
DRAGON: I am glad that you already know me. Did we meet before?
CARL: I don't think so.
DRAGON: You could be right, usually I remember such meetings. What is your name? I didn't ask, not because that I am not interested. I didn't ask because usually all run before I could ask their name.
CARL: It happens often.
DRAGON: Sorry to admit it, yes. What is your name?
CARL: Carl. It was your tea and I didn't asked.
DRAGON: You was thirsty, you have a tea, I don't mind, Carl.
CARL: I want to show you to Ned.
DRAGON: Sorry, who is Ned, and why you want to show me to him?
CARL: Ned is my best friend. Not show you to him, but introduce you to my friend, because... If you don't mind.
DRAGON: You want to see me one more time.
CARL: You already have a lot of friends...
DRAGON: You want that we became friends.
CARL: Oh, yes. Ned could run away from you, but I will stay, because I don't afraid.
DRAGON: Nice to hear that.
CARL: Till tomorrow.
DRAGON: Till tomorrow.
Carl starts to exit, all time looks at Dragon. Dragon waves him.
DRAGON: Such a wonderful day. At first came bee, than Carl. Tomorrow will be Ned. I always believed in power of politeness.
Dragon takes another cup and exits.
Enter Carl and Ned.
NED: We already came?
NED: What exciting you wanted to show me?
NED: Table with teapot?
CARL: When you’ll see... I told you, you never forget this.
NED: Yesterday you was late. Your way was wrong. Now you invent something.
CARL: You'll see.
Bee sits on table.
NED: Really? Never in my life I saw such creature. True. I never forget it.
CARL: Bee with honey came to tea.
NED: Is this all? Can we go now?
NED: I don't...
Dragon sings, enters on his head is hat against bees.
DRAGON: Carl! I'm glad that you could came. With bee we visited bee's family. So I have to put on that hat for protection, if someone won't be friendly.
Dragon puts off hat.
DRAGON: I think it's your friend Ned?
DRAGON: Nice to meet you, Ned!
Ned sits on stage.
CARL: I thought you'll run.
DRAGON: Would you like some tea?
NED: Dragon with tea.
BEE: I also brought some honey.
DRAGON: Would you like a seat?
NED: If it will be... Tea, dragon, bee. Yes, I would like to have a tea, thank you.
CARL: I told you, it will be great.
NED: It was greatest day in my life.
BEE: Honey was good.
NED: Could we came one more time?
CARL: It won't be such polite. Could you came to us, Dragon?
CARL: Bee, yes, we invite you. But you'll fly.
DRAGON: It would be such pleasure to me.
BEE: Wait for me.
NED: You'll meet all of our friends.
