The Celtic Witch

The Celtic Witches

I am the Celtic Witch I was once, one of three. I live in yonder castle it was home to my two sisters and me. I have not much left now that is dear to me there is my fine armoured stallion,my dragon and my ravens three.

I am a dragon mistress that was what fate dealt my way my red hair marks me as such, yes it is as the legions say. I am not to be trifled with I am only for the brave for fine words or fine swords will not hinder me.

I was out hunting with my dragon and my steed I was busy chasing my quarryย  and I did not my ravens heed. They came to tell me the news but I was too busy to hear.

My sisters shall be avenged

My heart was ripped away from me when finding on my return that those evil witch hunters had taken my sisters away and had them burned. I vow I shall have revenge those evil witch hunters will pay I shall reek revenge on them they will regret the day, they took my sisters and burned them at the stake. I shall not forgive them that is not a mistake I shall make.

I will not sleep nor eat no drink shall pass my lips I shall wear two swords one at each of my hips. No fine words will sway me no fine swords could make me fear I shall avenge my sisters as they are all I hold dear.

So now I shall prepare myself my mission it is clearย  I need to gather close to me just what I have left that isย  dear to me there is my fine armoured stallion, my dragon and my ravens three.I shall fight for you my sisters I shall slay them all you’ll see.

    You know, this is so potent. I could actually hear a voice in my head saying all this.

      Thank you. I believe we are all warriors underneath, strip away our trappings then deny us something or someone we love and the warrior will emerge! Have a great day!

    Very polished, very rhythmical, very true to the essence of both Celtic folklore and the essence of bravery and revenge and bitterness. As you say, mess with our loved ones and see how we breath fire!

    Nice bit of mythology Willow. Also, on a completely shallow note – I’d like a skirt like the one in the first picture! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I love stories like this. It stirs the Celtic blood and makes the Irish want to get out shining swords and dance through a night with starlight flashing on steel while a great bonfire blazes streams of golden and red sparks into heaven.
