    Summary

    Allah dyed the wool of the sky a brilliant red the day that Shah Hussain born.

    Perhaps better to say Shah Hussain woke up to provide no offense to the labors of his mother given he was thirty-six at the time. Having memorized the Koran at age ten, he'd been at a twenty year labor studying in the madrasas of the city where he'd been born. Going sleepless nights in austere contemplation of the flow of the Ravi River and no coins for a journey to far off Mecca.

    Currents of Hindu and Muslim kings had traded the city back and forth, and all that time he'd struggled to understand the laws that must govern the spirit of his life.

    Summary

    Azhdaha lived next to a spring that flowed into a small green pool halfway up Mount Al Jaz'har. It was a good place to live. Remote and far from where people were. The caves in the mountain were very comfortable. Especially once Azhdaha ate the wizard who lived in them. He'd tried to capture her, but she was a dragon. Not a djinn for a bottle.

    She was sunning herself on her favorite ledge, when she saw a lone traveller on a beautiful red-gold mare ride up the dusty narrow trail. His clothing was fine, but worn and his mare's saddle was richly decorated, but not well cared for. Azhdaha wondered about their history, but knew that if she did end up eating them, she shouldn't dwell. Her Mother had always said not a good idea to make up stories or play games with dinner.

    Then again, she'd long since left being a hatchling behind.
