Moksha – p.21

The water was swift, and Moksha knew she could not brace herself against the rock for very long. She was in the middle of the river, equidistant from both banks, so she wasn’t sure which one to try for. She tried to imagine what the elders might have done if they had come this way.

There was a sound to her left, and when she looked she saw a strange animal on the shore. It had come down to the river for a drink, but it stopped when it saw Moksha. It was covered with a fine, golden fur, with shining antlers longer than any Moksha had ever seen on any gazelle. It looked at her with large, dark eyes and then walked out into the water.

Moksha was about to call out to it, to warn it that the current was too swift, but the water was stilled wherever the golden creature went, and it had soon reached the rock where she was. Looking into her eyes, it asked in a warm voice, “Why do you struggle so?”
