Legends tell of a beast of ash and fire that fills the night with a galloping fury. Many have tried to capture the beast only to have their looped ropes pass through the terrible beauty and catch fire.
The creature’s passing often accompanies the death of one nearby, taking their soul to the underworld riding on its back. The giggle of sprites mingle with the beat’s neigh as it pounds its hoof into the ground opening the entrance into the afterlife.
Take heed my warning friend. Should heat, smoke, and fire accompany the neigh of an otherworldly creature; hold tight to your loved ones and your soul or you might find yourself abroad the back of Hell’s Kelpie.
