Mary and the Second Dragon, a tale by Umamor Hunter, is one of a series of stories about a time-traveler finding herself in a magical realm of ancient Scotland.
Near the mountain was Arumdas's cave, but just beyond that there was the forest that I almost ran into on my first day here. Catherine had told me that for most people it was certain death to venture into the wooded thicket that was known to house all kinds of the supernatural, but then again I also wasn't most people. Sometimes I'd walk in there, just to listen to the trees and the wind blow through them. I was hoping I'd run into some fairies or at least a ley line to make contact. Finding a way to end the war between Onin, the dragons, and humans seemed to revolve around the Sidhe.
Weird things did happen in the forest though. I didn't need to be under the tutelage of a dragon to know that, but at least the lessons helped me defend myself if I ever needed it. Unfortunately I also happened to be in the middle of what I called "weird things." Whether it was because of bad luck or not, I was an anomaly and an attractant, and it was annoying.
