~ 14. Ravana Attacks Kubera ~

Kubera rallied his yaksha soldiers to defend their mountain home from Ravana's attack. Kubera and the yakshas fought bravely, but they were no match for the rakshasas. Soon the battlefield was littered with yaksha corpses lying in rivers of blood that streamed bright red in the snow.
The surviving yakshas all fled, and Kubera alone confronted Ravana on the battlefield. 
"Someone will finally send you to hell," Kubera said, "and then you will understand the consequences of your actions." 
The half-brothers fought until Kubera fell, wounded but not dead. 
Ravana then stole Kubera's flying chariot and returned, triumphant, to Lanka.
