Moksha – p.5

August 22, 2012 at 10:34 pm 1 comment

The next morning, Moksha woke early, too excited and anxious to be grumpy. Her mother was still sleeping, as was most of the herd. The land was quiet, the sky was clear, and a thin coating of dew covered the dry grass.

Moksha wriggled out from under the protection of her mother’s ear, and ventured a few steps away from the tree. She couldn’t see or hear any other animals, and suddenly wondered if the sounds from the night before meant that all of them had been hunted and eaten. She raised her trunk and let out a short, soft noise, then walked a little farther.

By the time the rest of the herd was up and about, Moksha had wandered quite far, and she had to run as quick as her thick little legs could carry her to catch up. Her mother grabbed her by the tail and yanked her a few inches off the ground. “When the herd is traveling, the herd stays together.”
