An Elephant's Trunk: Chapter 8:Risks

To put their plan into action, Fiercepaw leads Emeraldtrunk into the back of the cave. “There are a bunch of very strong strips of wood back here. It will need to have layers, but it we can find something to stick it together with, it should make a good raft. The plan depends on how strong the wood really is. You arrange them while I go check on your mother.” He leaves, and Emeraldtrunk reaches for the first stick, but her trunk gets caught in a vine twice its length. “Well, that’s something to tie it with,” she says. When she is finished, the raft is 8 ft. long and 1 ft. thick and tied nicely, but she just hopes it floats. She shows it to Fiercepaw, who says “Perfect! I think we need to test it before we use it, though. “No time!” says Emeraldtrunk’s mother. “Look!” They looked. The water was coming in the door of the cave!
