Dragon Riding for Wimps

Your best friend has just been turned into a dragon by a fairy in a bad mood. Those fairies can be really bitchy when they get into a bad mood. Your friend, Alice, thinks you should have some fun while she’s a dragon. Seems the least you can do is tag along. But you never did well in the Dragon Riding classes you took in high school. Do you ask her to wear the rider safety harness or would that make you seem like too much of a wimp? Beyond that, assuming you get up there, how does the ride go and where do you end up?
