She trotted through the forest under the full moon of Imbolc. They’d been following her since dusk. There were five of them. She was getting tired. Ahead she saw a thinning in the trees. Then she smelled the honey and cinnamon of Dentia plants and knew she was near the witch’s homestead. She couldn’t lead them there. She didn’t notice the dragon in the underbrush. Reluctantly she turned west towards the Whiteshadow forest. There she would find safety but the elves wouldn’t appreciate her leading the goblins to the Council home. A sudden whiff of rotting meat and the burn of her flesh being torn, she screamed and ran faster. Miraculously she was able to get away. But she’d been scratched by a goblin. She had to hurry to Whiteshadow. Only the elves could save the unicorn now.
