Tales of the Tuatha ( chapter 14 of the keep it sweet and short tales)

The Tree Dragon’s Eye

aine's sky

The sky kept changing, changing! Was Aine angry with her?

The tree dragon menaced.  “Well!” he demanded, “what of my payment?” Looking up, she saw a single shining sphere gazing at her through the foliage. With an astonished recognition she replied, “Why sir, you already have my payment! The eye you possess is one of my own dreams in which I journey!” As the creature recoiled in confusion the thieving raven saw opportunity and once again swooped down and plucked up the orb.

The  blind tree dragon  began shaking with a terrible rage but Niamh had already entered the portal.

      1. I was thinking of the three dragons in Game of Thrones, but the Sean Connery one will do just nicely, too!

        I think you should develop these tales into a book. It would make a beautiful story.

  7. Very descriptive and so nice to read with the image. I have always been such a visual person and relied on visual memory.
