Brother's Hunt

Post by Stongbow SandStunner on Mon Oct 19, 2015 2:27 am


Mock looked down at his brother who floated quietly near him. His brothers long braid was twisted around his wrist, he always did that with his hair when they were hunting, kept it out of the way. He often talked of cutting it off but in the end, he kept the long braid.

Slowly the mohawked elf hooted down to his brother who looked up and returned a few clicks and a single chirp. Slowly the healer lifted himself above Mock who readied his bow, his arm bending fluidly as he aimed the arrow at the deer like creature. The bamboo arrow whistled from the bow and flew through the air striking the creature on the rump.

Mock hissed and the two floated after the bolting animal, cries of fright echoing across the forest, The hunter nocked and fired another arrow striking the deer in its lower leg, crippling it, and watched it fall over with another cry.

The two landed next to it as the braided elf knelt next to the injured deer; slowly he laid his four-fingered hand on the deer's side calming it with gentle waves of energy taking away its pain as he removed a slim bone dagger from his belt. Hushing the deer gently the healer sent an extra wave of calm and peace to the animal before driving the blade into the creature’s spinal cord severing the nerves and bone killing the animal instantly.

Looking up at his brother the healer sent darkly, <I thought we agreed on clean kills>

Mock snorted, <I tried to give a clean kill Raptor, besides you gave it peace.>

Raptor raised a delicate brow before shaking his head, <We should get it back to our den.>

The archer nodded settling his bow on his back before lifting the deer up onto his shoulders. The extra weight made it impossible to float so the two trekked through the thick forest rain dripping down onto them from the large leaves above them.

Soon they came to a small grove of trees, seven of them were bent to form a small tent like hut with large banana leaves covering the forest floor inside the enclosure with several tiger pelts and two elephant tusks set aside with clay bowls of rain water and fruits of all kinds.

Mock laid the deer across a stone slab that was set just away from their hut of trees and began to work on the carcass as Raptor began to dehusk one of the large brown nut fruits, they enjoyed drinking the tree milk on the inside. They worked side by side before Raptor's head shot up and he tilted his head to the side.

Mock glanced at his brother but stayed silent when his brother raised a single hand to silence what he might have said. Then Raptor spoke aloud quietly, "I think I felt someone sending. Like us but stronger."

Mock shook his head, "There are no other elves in this forest, we are the only ones. We have checked, we sent from the highest of the trees, no one replied, that is why we settled here."

Bright blue eyes turned his mohawked brother, "We have been found."

Mock groaned and hung his head, "Bat Dunk."

The brothers looked at each other before returning to their tasks, as long as they were not bothered, they would not overreact, the elf was most likely just passing through.
