The Legend of the Fireborn

“Have you heard the legend of the Fireborn?” Kennet speaks over the flame in his hand.

The man eyes the fire hungrily. He’s shivered too long without it.

Kennet smiles as the flame crawls up and around, caressing his arm like a kitten. “They say the strongest of the Fireborn were conceived within earth’s hottest flames and birthed in the depths of Mount Valcoeur, where fire melts earth to liquid.”

“Can I have it?” The man quakes with anticipation, his gaze fixed on Kennet’s fire.

Kennet shrugs, heat emanating from his body. “You’ll have to ask your princess.”

  1. This is an interesting piece of FF. One can feel the desperate need and anticipation – and the nonchalant answer – like water dousing. Well done. 🙂
