Default Secrets of the Witch

It is a day of no particular beauty. The sun peaks out intermittently from between the masses of light gray clouds that obscure the blue of the summer sky. There is a languid and humid heaviness about the air, a tiredness that seems to have even dulled and muted the colors of the wild flowers. A handful of swans glide slowly upon the surface of the nearby tarn and a large rabbit rests in the shade of what had been the front porch of Isaac the Woodcutter’s cottage. What few valuables Isaac had possessed were collected by his family not long after he was so brutally slaughtered by the Ettin that had taken up residence in a nearby cave. The cottage itself was largely destroyed that day and so it has remained since – unrepaired and unclaimed.

Until today, that is....

And so begins

The path to the woodcutter’s cottage is little more than a bridle trail – just wide and smooth enough for one to lead a laden horse or mule. Until this morning it had branched off from a wider track suitable for wagons that runs for a while through the forest before leading to a small farming village on the outskirts of the town of Lockesville. Very early this morning, just before the first light of day, a solitary traveler stepped off the wagon trail and onto the path leading to the woodcutter’s cottage. His gate was unhurried but swift, untroubled by the darkness that should have slowed his progress, and his passing left neither sound nor scent nor in its wake. A short time later, as the light of dawn began to fill the morning sky, the path taken by the traveler simply disappeared. One moment it branched, as it always had, off of the main wagon trail, and the next there was nothing to be seen or felt along its entire length but the seamless growth of the forest.
