Prompt: 361 Forest
There's a dangerous dragon in the old forest. Everyone knows this. The village children are told to never go near.
The dragon is huge, and ancient, and white. It doesn't look like the magnificent beasts of most stories and fairy tales. It's misshapen and ponderous, its painful screams torn from a mutilated throat. But it breathes lethal fire.
During moonlit nights it will come flying, circling high across the fields, frightening livestock.
This is common knowledge, though when truth be told, few villagers have actually seen this magical creature themselves.
There's a dragon in the forest, and it's very lonely.
