Under Strange Stars - The Mount

“Come, mercenary, meet those you will be riding with.” The Emir stood. He was older and stocky, but wielded absolute rule. Emerging from the tent, his outstretched arm pointed out warriors practicing their skills atop large, humped animals. “Our lands are perhaps different than those you have known. Our oceans are sand; our steeds are adapted to this.”

“Be careful, they spit,” the Emir warned as they neared the animals in the staging area, approaching an animal with blond-red coloring. “This is Ginger, may she carry you to victory.”

Aragorn took a deep breath and reached for the camel's bridle.
