the mastodon


her grandfather knew archaic words in their language.

he was a direct descendant of the last warrior king who once hunted mastodons.

the thing about hunts is that they are not always as successful as most people like to believe and not everyone returns safely.

this story ends with death.

death of the mastodon and death of a man who hunted them.

death to an ancestral way of life.
