Dragon River

Here to There

Here to There

The river stretched for a thousand miles, into what used to be dragon territory. Nobody had seen one of the formidably beasts for a century but the land still bled fiery, orange fumes every nightfall. Some believed this was an omen of things to come, that someday the dragons would return, born from the ashes and blood of violence and war. Superstitious fools. Nobody knew exactly why the sky was that faded reddish in that part of the world. The only thing they knew was the land was silent. Life, it appears, had abandoned those forsaken grounds and had not returned, not even when the Druids tried to muster the energy of the land.

About suzanawylie

Suzana Wylie is the not-very-pseudo pseudonym of Susan Wylie Wilson, because let's face it, there are lots of Susan Wilsons around, and as an author, I want readers to find ME and not the bazillions of others. I've been writing all my life - since I learned to hold a pencil anyway - and can't NOT write. Other people have to breathe to live; I have to write.

One Response to Dragon River, by James Lee Hard (posted with permission)

    Ah, why does this image evoke a magical response? I really like the landscape “bleeding” the fiery dragon fumes, James. The suggestion of druids gives me pause. I have written of druids, none of it complimentary, and I dare not tread these grounds… paybacks are hell. Wonderful imagination, and thanks for joining us!
