Falada

 The Stable Maid's Secret


  "Lagda arched his back,lowered his head and unfurled his wings just as Erian had done, but for one exception: He did not hiss, he roared. He roared in an ancient voice that awakened a deep, primeval fear in every man that heard it. Then every dragon in line arched their backs and spread their wings and bellowed in a monstrous chorus that shook the earth as if it would split the very stones within it. Horses reared in panic, weaker men fled in terror and just as the rest were beginning to collapse into madness, the chorus stopped abruptly, as if on cue. Absolute silence followed. Nothing and no one stirred."

   "As the smoke cleared, Sir Allistair's fear became wonderment. He had never seen such a dragon. It was huge, the largest ever he could remember. It was an animal of fading magnificence, with large scales of red, russet, amber, and gold, now faded and dusty with a few missing here and there. The wings, though vast in area, looked frail and thin, tattered and scarred. A pair of large, bright, penetrating eyes was set above a gaping maw that obviously lacked a few teeth. Though huge, the dragon appeared to be malnourished, for its flesh was drawn tight over protruding bones. In an instant, Sir Allistair made these observations and came to the conclusion that this once powerful dragon had grown old and weak. An easy victory."

     "There came a time in Brianne Becuma's short life when she was standing inside a stable far from home, deep in a tranquil, summer night, with a length of rope in her hands contemplating an unthinkable act. This was not supposed to happen. This was far from the vision that she or anyone else had for her life. Yet there she was."
