Drabble: Victory


And there was rejoicing!

Through the lands, trumpets blared, and bards told triumphant tales of our warriors’ heroism in reverent tones. The foul beast who’d tormented our people as far back as any of us can remember had been vanquished. We dance among its bones. No longer must we hide in the shadows, huddling beneath the great humming mountain. The beast would never again magick into existence the terrible burning light, nor would we be crushed or fed poison.

Some among us feared that others like the beast may exist, in worlds alongside our own. But we all know better!
