The Legend of the Dragon Lady: a Sunday Shoe Story

When a classmate of mine recently announced in class that she had made the decision to be a Dragon Lady I couldn't help but laugh. Dragon Ladies aren't made; Dragon Ladies are born.

We're few and far between, and we generally don't feel the need to announce it to our classmates. They should be able to tell who we are by our actions, or by the don't-fuck-with-me-pheremones that we exude. It's our natural instinct to go for the throat when threatened, but the general rule is to use the silence to our advantage. We may wear skirts in feminine colours, but the scales on our shoes betray our true nature.
