In our second tale of the Glass Realm, Pyro, the fiery dragon, finds himself more and more intrigued by the glass city of Melbourne. Eager to make amends for his earlier blunder, Pyro volunteers to assist Wink, the local glass expert, in his repairs.
Despite his rough dragon claws, Pyro quickly picks up on the delicate art of glass repair. He learns about commercial decorative glass, marvelling at the intricate designs and patterns that enhance the city’s beauty. Wink guides him through the process, showing him how each design is not just an aesthetic feature, but also contributes to the structural integrity of the buildings.
From Wink, Pyro also learns about the crucial role of tinting in the Glass Realm. From controlling sunlight to increasing privacy, tinting is an essential part of life here. Pyro even gets to work with some of the top office tinting companies in the Melbourne area, helping to apply tints to the city’s glass skyscrapers.
During his work, a local television crew drops by to interview Pyro about his unique experience in the Glass Realm. The reporter, a lively glass sprite named Crystal, starts by asking Pyro how he’s finding the realm so far.
“Oh, it’s a smashing place!” Pyro says, chuckling at his own pun. “Really, though, it’s stunning. And the people are so friendly, and patient too, considering I’ve been a bit of a bull in a china shop.”
Crystal laughs, pressing on with the interview. “So, Pyro,” she continues, “how does a dragon like you end up working in glass repair?”
Pyro chuckles nervously. “Well,” he replies, “let’s just say I learned the hard way that you can’t mix fire and glass!”
Crystal and Pyro continue their chat, with Pyro sharing more of his adventures in the Glass Realm. From his struggles with glass frosting to his attempts at applying window tinting, Pyro’s anecdotes have the whole realm chuckling along.
As Pyro’s day concludes, he feels a sense of accomplishment. He’s beginning to understand the realm and its residents better, and he’s genuinely contributing to the city’s upkeep. As the sun sets, casting long shadows through the glass structures, Pyro knows he has plenty more to learn and experience in this fascinating Glass Realm of Melbourne.
