May 2019 Flash Challenge: Beltane

Since it is May, tell us a tale of Beltane night (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beltane for those of you unfamiliar with the festival)

One thousand words, any genre, but try not to take the most obvious path. I'd like some world-building, some character development, and some dialogue.

Entries to me by PM by 14 May, if it please you my Lords and Ladies...

I've already something on my mind about this, and I'll start writing it down next week, as yesterday was 25th April, that was National Holidays here, after the Liberation Day, when the Allied came to free the rest of northern Italy in WWII, and so this is a sort of vacation period for us now...eh,eh :D

Oddly enough, Sergio, 25 April is a holiday in Australia as well - commemorating the landings at Gallipoli in 1915. A little less celebratory than yours...

For Wormtongue:

Yes, in WWI that was recounted as Sir Churchill's worst mistake in his life, though that disaster wasn't only cause of his fault, the plan had to be completed by the Navy and the Army in a very short time and might have proven to be good, but delays and bad coordination made a lot of soldiers die there unfortunately...but he certainly redeemed himself in WWII when he acted much better, in the interest of the Allied, of course... :D

By the way, my entry has just been sent in today...

This going to be an interesting one. I hope I get a handle on this one. Been so busy the last year that I haven't had time to enter, but I intend to make a effort this time.
