Flute Among Trumpets

This is a school project about adventure stories. The elephant orphanage mentioned is the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust's orphanage, found by Daphne Sheldrick.


10. Deception

     The next morning, we had been going for an hour or so when I saw something odd. A lone elephant, wandering towards us. He trumpeted in joy "Tambletch is dead!". Mithr ran up to him, but I called her back. Something about this was not right.

     "Nova!" he called, "Come, you can go home now! I will turn you back into a human and you can go home!" Still I hesitated. Mahun had said "don't trust what seems easiest" hadn't she? And this certainly seemed easy. Oh, but I wasn't sure of anything any more! The price was so heavy if I was wrong!

      He continued to approach. My mind searched for something, anything to grab on to. I stared into his eyes. And I didn't like what I saw. Red energy, no soul, nothing!

"Mithr! Run!" I trumpeted. Thank goodness she listened. As she dashed around the stranger, I ducked past on his other side, following her. I chanced a look behind, only to see him dissolving into red mist.

"Going somewhere?" the voice was sinister, obviously crazy, and definitely not elephant.
