Leaf closed his tired eyes and the sound of dozens of orcs chanting his name washed over him. Even Pâsh, especially Pâsh, who even bestowed upon him the honor of War Chief. He nearly fell over as Pâsh slammed his maul into the ground to make the announcement, and truly he would’ve if the massive Grand Chieftain didn’t already have him damn near dangling by his arm. It took all he had left not to let more than a single tear slide down his fury face.
Leaf’s head was a bit too banged up to really think about what this all meant as he was fully caught up in the rapture of knowing that the orcs had accepted him. Folks all over had a lot of misconceptions about orcs, at least the ones in Dugmaghord, they really weren’t just mindless brutes. It took a lot to not only just survive, but thrive, in the harshest depths of the desert. That took strength, and sure their way of life was brutal but it had a purpose, it was exactly as brutal as it needed to be because when he really thought about it, orcs were a lot like predators, and Leaf could understand predators just fine. Nature was brutal, war would be brutal, so he could not be soft and expect to survive. Leaf would learn all he could from orcs.
“This is far higher than any honor I coulda expected.” Leaf said, bowing his head in respect for Pâsh. “To hear it from Avalia’s greatest warrior, Avalia’s mightiest orc, couldn’t ask for a better day.” Leaf said, grinning, as he tried to express proper gratitude to the Grand Chieftain. “I look forward to following you into battle.” He added, that seemed like the sort of thing an orc would say, and Leaf was almost, feeling a little bit like an orc right now, despite also feeling like a very tiny creature when standing next to towering Pâsh. He was even sure he could eat like an orc. His stomach growled again as it agreed.
