Shaardul Cleans Up – p.12

February 2, 2012 at 11:13 am 1 comment

Word spread through the jungle about the fighting tigers and soon the trees were thick with birds, monkeys, and other animals who had come to watch. The older male tiger was embarrassed that what he had thought would be a quick, simple trouncing had turned into such a slobber-knocker. The other tigers were sure to chide him. He decided to end the battle as soon as he could and kept his eyes open for any advantage.

Shaardul’s lazy lifestyle and poor diet were catching up to him, and he knew he wouldn’t be able to keep up his defense much longer. He, too, was keeping his eye out for some sort of salvation.

The path of the fight led the tigers into a wet, dense part of the jungle where the ground began to descend, and both combatants realized they were headed in the direction of the Pit, a place where water, wind and gravity conspired to bring all the loose matter of the jungle floor. Dead plants, animal bones, muck and filth of all kinds ended up in the Pit, and it wasn’t a very pleasant place.

The older male growled, rushed Shaardul in one great burst of his remaining energy, and knocked him head over heels. Shaardul rolled backwards, unable to stop or right himself, and the next thing he knew he was face down in the stinking pile of refuse in the Pit.
