In the shadow of the mountain

Challenge: Natural Disaster: Earthquake
Summary: Disaster depends upon your perspective.


All Mordorís armies were marching. The guards had never been so few as in these days of tremors, when it seemed even the earth foretold upset; by night whispers ran among Nurnís farm slaves.

In dim daylight, Mharjada looked over, whither Enkit drew the harrows, dropped a tell-tale stone. Enkit stumbled, collapsed.

ďHoi! You, slave - up!Ē The overseer's whip cracked counterpoint command. But as Enkit cringed, Mharjada drew his stolen knife, fell upon the overseer, slit his throat and sent up a ululating howl of bloody victory.

All across Mordorís heartland, slaves took up that cry, and their world quaked.
