Inktober Day 4: Freeze
The dream of peace that ended in tragedy… Prince Shayari and his family crossed the vast mountains that cleave Pangaea in two to sign a peace treaty with the mythical people beyond them.
But an earthquake and avalanche obliterated the whole entourage, and only the royal family in their sturdy litter survived.

But it’s not peace that greets them when they finally come across a village of the alien Arani. Out of the family of three, only one will survive the night…
I’m doing a mix of Inktober and Whumptober, picking prompts that tickle my muses at random. Today the Inktober prompt inspired me most.
