The car explodes, shrapnel flying everywhere. The elephants are running for their lives. I duck for cover as gunshots ring out over my head. 

The next day I find the village burnt out, no elephants in sight,  just smoke billowing from the old huts.

I walk down the stream that is just over the hill and find the elephants lying in the swimming hole, so I go join them.

 I get up to go scout out the bandit camp. I head back and gather the elephants which are talking with each other, and then the elephant delivered his speech.
