Yule Mathom Challenge 2005

December 2 - 23 obstinate oliphaunts

5. To War by Aranel Took

"Get those beasts moving!" the captain yelled. Hastin scowled at the man far below him. What did the captain--a city man born in luxury--know of oliphaunts? He turned and whistled at his fellow keepers, signaling them to follow him. Twenty-two oliphaunts lined up behind his mount. He patted her bristly head and leaned closer to her ear. "We must go now, sweet." He looked ahead at the dark land draped in smoke from the fiery mountain. It didn't surprise him that the oliphaunts refused to go any closer. He had learned long ago they were smarter than men.
