Sorceress Part 2
A knock on the front door interrupted my mid-morning book time. I glanced at my mug. Barely half of my tea was gone and it was still pretty warm. I’m so not ready for social interaction yet, I thought. I haven’t even finished my tea. Not nearly enough caffeine is in my system. Ugh. But I had to answer the door. Not many knew that I had Rowena and Duncan here with me, and most people didn’t react well to the sight of Brownies, which hurt both of my friends feelings, though they were very good at hiding that.
Sorceress Part 1
SUMMER I sat on the top of the bluffs, my legs dangling over the side. I lifted my face up to the sun, enjoying the morning light. I could see for miles up here, and everything seemed peaceful in the early morning sun. I breathed deeply, feeling calm. A scuff off to my right and behind me caught my attention. I turned slightly, to see a man slowly inching his way along a precarious ledge, his eyes on me. Red-blonde hair, blue eyes, he had that cute guy-next-door kind of look. Standing next to me he probably would be a bit taller than I was.
There weren't always dragons in the valley.
There weren’t always dragons in the valley. But we are here now. Driven from our homes in a distant land by an enemy who coveted our history. They came, killing us if they caught us, enchanted by our scales. Not that the scales would do them any good. Dragon scales only work if the dragon gives them away willingly. No dragons gave away their scales to the invaders who killed them. They took our art, our buildings, our homes, and pretended they were there first. We tried to fight back, so I’ve been told, but they were too strong. They had one of the few things that truly frightens a dragon. Unicorn blood. Weapons dipped in unicorn blood would strike a dragon down in one blow. It’s our poison. Against it we have no antidote, and so we fled.
