Spirits of light
piece 6

It was a strange red glow, coming from something far away, from the bottom of a hill it seemed. She climbed down and started walking towards that light.

It must be a shepherd or some sage, she was quite sure.

She reached that place right before dawn,a cave’s mouth, the glow was coming from inside.

She entered the cave.

It was a huge rock that looked like egg, round and scaly but it was rock because there were no birds or animals she has known about that laid an egg that was a feet high and proportionately round!

She touched the rock, she had a feeling that it shook under her palms.

A shadow fell on the cave floor beside her.

It was one of the men that lived in the fort.

“How did you…” she asked incredulously.
