Moksha – p.23

December 27, 2012 at 2:00 pm 2 comments

The water flowed swiftly but Moksha kept her trunk above the surface. She did not try to swim or steer herself, and found that if she forgot to be scared, she was having fun. The river rushed her past rocks and roots without a scratch, eventually slowing enough that Moksha could lift her head above the water and look around.

Ahead of her, the river turned and disappeared behind trees. In the bend, the water was shallow and wide, and there stood the two elders from the herd, drinking their fill.

She trumpeted and they turned to watch her approach. As soon as she got close, she reached out and linked trunks with them one at a time. They showed her great affection and then turned towards the shore, motioning for her to follow. She wondered for a moment whether she should wait in case the others might have followed her, but went with the elders. They were in the promised land and she was eager to see more!
