The Tale of Hellevi and the Dragon
Written by Taylor Catlin
A story that could end a lifetime...
Hellevi is seen as weak by the men of the village, including her own husband. She couldn't protect the village and fight with the men... could she?
But, after a recent Viking attack and many injured men, a new threat is seen in glowing eyes watching from the forest...
After a person Hellevi knows is slain by the dragon, she blames the death on herself. Men volunteer to go after the dragon... but as a woman, Hellevi is not allowed to join them.
Can Hellevi prove to everyone that she can fight with the men? Her bravado will be tested... but will her guilt be the death of her?
There is a theme to this tale!
