Shor's bones, it truly was a dragon. I've never seen-- it was just so massive. It must have been the work of that damned wizard, it appeared right as the axe was about to fall on the old man's head. Perhaps it's a coincidence and he did not summon the foul beast, but his presence here in Riverwood makes me uneasy. I plan to head to Whiterun at first light to tell Balgruuf of Helgen's fate, and put some miles between me and that Breton.
