The Elf fell with a scream.
Two pursuing Orcs, their faces painted masks of terror, paused then ran forward – blood welled, staining blond hair. The orcs looked about furtively before half-dragging him away. He whimpered in their grasp, but they were too strong.
They were soon confronted.

Rosie knelt beside the tearful ‘elf’. “There now, ‘tis only a nasty scratch… we’ve got gingerbread men for tea…”
The sniffling ‘elf’ swiftly cheered-up.
