He was carrying a skin bag, some dry grass. Longtusk rumbled and lunged at the little Firehead. All over his body, the ropes creaked and tightened cruelly. Lemming yelped and staggered backward. He dropped his skin bag, which landed with a thick gurgle. "Let him feed you," Walks With Thunder urged. " "Not any more. " Lemming retrieved his dropped bag, opened it up and held it out to Walks With Thunder. With a noisy slurp the mastodont sucked up a trunkful of water, draining the bag. The smell of the water filled Longtusk's head.
Longtusk eyed Jaw Like Rock. "There is a stink of Firehead on you," he said. " Jaw Like Rock stiffened. " And he roared and lunged with his tusks. The mastodont sidestepped—but not fast enough; the tip of one mammoth tusk scraped down his flank. "Well done, little grazer," he said, his trunk investigating the wound. " Longtusk looked down, and saw a smear of bright crimson at the sharp tip of one curling spiral tusk. He felt a surge of pride. If only Rockheart could see him now!... "Get it over, Jaw," growled Walks With Thunder.
It was obvious he was trying to drive the big Bull forward. This Firehead was sapling-thin with a cruel, pinched face. The scarred Bull, seeming unaware of the multiple wounds being inflicted on him, swiveling his huge, filth-crusted rump and let out a fart of thunderous intensity. A foul brown spray knocked the skinny Firehead backward, and the line of mastodonts reacted with stomps and growls of amusement. The Bull walked forward nonchalantly out of his dispersing brown cloud, muscles moving under his fat brown-black coat of hair.
