alt The Moorags lured each creature to their pointless death, helplessly at the lip of the ditch beckoning the creature to their innocent kill. James tried in vain to persuade the Unicorns not to go further into the ditch, by shouting and waving his arms around but it was to no avail, and then suddenly he was pulled back by Jambalee who was worried he too may be attacked. James anxiously pulled out the hoop from his pocket. Holding the Dream Catcher hoop high he saw it flash for a split second and then he wishfully prayed, but nothing was to save what was written. As each Unicorn fell into the ditch a deep screech and moan was emitted with a thunder bolt of light flashing suddenly fluttering into the horizon followed by a pungent smell of dead burning flesh.
James watched helplessly. How could he help prohibit the slaughter, he looked on knowing what had happened, ‘We have got to do something?’ He yelled angrily.
‘I know…but what?’ Tom replied fighting back his tears. The lights of the carcasses died, the battlefield went dark and what stars remained disappeared leaving behind a cold callous breeze sending sharp shivers through the boy’s marrow. Only muted droning sounds remained telling the story of a fight full of trickery and evil, King Polyectes and Morkann had shown their wrath.
Jambalee, wearily looked at the boys, ‘Come we must go, there is nothing more we can do here,’ peering at the destruction of the Unicorns he said in a deep melancholy voice.
‘But we have to try SOMETHING… we have got to rescue…’ James abruptly stopped short of his sentence; he paused he could see a Unicorn gripping onto his life; he was struggling in the ditch where he had fallen into, raking deep breaths and stopping panting for air then pausing. His graceful hide inflated then collapsed and each toned muscle stretched as he struggled to breathe. There beside him lay carcasses of Unicorns all groaning in pain strewn across the strange vegetation. Those creatures who had died and withered away lay still as stone and their silver horns disintegrating into silver dust. But not this one, he was a fighter. The Unicorn glared at James. Yet James knew this Unicorn had to be rescued some how. But how?
James rushed over towards him, to they dismay of the others who were eager to leave the ditch as soon as possible. He stroked the sleek slender neck of the sad Unicorn; he could see fear looming in his huge sullen Sapphire eyes as he grimaced in pain, trying not to cry out. His breathing was labored and slow. James comforted the Unicorn as much as he could. Tearfully, kneeling he grabbed at Tom’s trouser leg, as he was standing near by tying to pull out the pot containing the white magic powder.
Jambalee and Tom watched carefully as James tried to place small drops into the Unicorn’s mouth.
‘Open please, please open your mouth… Please get well… please take it…come on…’ he said sorrowfully, trying to suppress his tears. He struggled trying to desperately prize open the creature’s mouth in order to place the magic powder drops into the Unicorn’s mouth. Slowly he succeeded; grabbing the creature’s strong jaw with one hand he dropped a couple of the powder droplets into its mouth. The Unicorn could not swallow so easily and blinked his teary sapphire eyes painfully as he gulped the powder down his thick sleek neck. His huge eyes fell like shutters, ackowledging Janes's assistance. A silent bond was formed, both beast and man had had now become friends. Tom watched wide eyed like a hooting owl in amazement. James carefully caressed the animal as it appeared the powder had worked.
‘They were all trying to help us!’ it’s okay…’ he said trying to comfort the struggling creature.
Jambalee hovered precariously over towards James, and placed his hand on his shoulder, he knew that that the Unicorn was dying. After a brief silence Jambalee glanced over at Tom, who was also sobbing in the distance; he beckoned him to approach his brother, to go and leave the creature to his fate.
‘You have done what is right James… Come on, we must go now – there is nothing more you can do for him,’ Tom said tearfully with a forlorn look on his face.
James looked up at Tom, with a steely stare he was weeping, holding back his tears defiantly he questioned,
‘You said this stuff worked’! He pointed to the powder pot towards Tom and Jambalee. ‘Hakeem said, do you remember, there is a calm you can find when you dive deep beneath the rough waters on the surface James’ Remember this – remember Tom, what is this place!’ He bellowed angrily as he watched the unicorn suffer.We can’t help him- James it’s too late!’ Jambalee then looked up at the red dusky sky, listening to the cries and wailing sounds of Morkann’s Ghouls battling in the distance with the centaurs and Aspero together with his army of Lupans. The cries reverberated around the atmosphere like an operatic séance Still sniffling James turned to Tom,
‘Something has gone wrong Tom didn’t your powder work before?’
Tom hesitated and licked his lips, pausing defiantly not knowing how to answer his older brother, Jambalee cut into an awkward silence as he turned back to see the Unicorn he could see slight movement in his limbs.
‘James, look!’ He gasped; ‘Quickly fetch some more powder – quick! You’ve don’t it James YOU’VE done it! You never gave up!’ The Unicorn
James hurriedly ran back to the dying Unicorn handing over the drops from the pot containing powder to Jambalee. Tom was relieved, that the Unicorn was saved.
James let out a big smile and beamed a glow of relief.
