Shaardul Cleans Up – p.11

January 31, 2012 at 4:58 pm 2 comments

The tigers fought their way across half the jungle, advancing, retreating, circling and jumping. Shaardul was holding his own, though he wasn’t exactly winning.

While he was fighting, he forgot his hunger. Energy that he did not know he possessed was welling up within him, helping him to carry on. He did not think, for he was too busy reacting to the incoming blows from the other tiger, but he was aware of an intense pride and sense of self that he also had never felt before.

Shaardul was standing up for himself, asserting his right to exist.

The other tiger had not expected such a battle, and was getting tired. He leapt up to the lowest branch of a nearby tree, and roared down at Shaardul. “I thought you were a lump of fur for monkeys to climb on,” he said. “It seems there is some muscle beneath your pelt after all.”

Shaardul was gasping for breath, but managed to reply, “It was always there; I was just waiting for a worthy opponent.” He did not know what made him say that, but he wanted to keep fighting. He wanted everyone to know that he would not take these insults lightly anymore. He jumped up and knocked the tiger out of the tree, and they continued the fight.

    I can see I won’t be playing either of these tigers in the film. One of the older monkeys, perhaps…. :o3
