<i>The small child looked up at her with his tear stained eyes,"Help," he spoke simply. She saw the vision of the boy fade away untill there was nothing but blackness, it covered all the world, evil was rising again in Mordor. The dark powers had concured all of Middle Earth, with a dark leader tall and terrible as he stood. Thousands were dying, nothing could be done. Then, the five clothed in white, purest of warriors with blades of white. And all ceased, the darkness had fallen, defeated by the five.</i><BR><BR>Adramir gasped as her eyes flew open, it was not often that her premonitions came to her, but always did they come true. She breathed heavily as she recalled the strang dream. Darkness, but how, Sauron was defeated and his allys few and scattered. But the warriors, Her thoughts were pierced by screams,... of children.<BR><BR>Adramir sprang to her feet and ran as quickly as her elven feet would let her. The woods were dense and the light of the day was fading. She came upon a clearing, outside of the small village within the forest. There were orcs, a small group of only fifteen or so, but they were well armored and highly trained.<BR><BR>Adramir saw him, the little boy from her dream, the orcs had him backed up to a tree. Across the clearing Adramir could see the dark outling of a person...

<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Kharya stood in the shadows of the dense forest. She ran to find the source of the scream she heard but moments sooner. It had come from this one child, a boy, who was now surrounded by well trained orcs. <BR><BR>"<i>Shh. Wait here Rain. Be ready if I whistle.</i>" Her beautiful grey and white horse acknologed(sp) and slowly crept forward alongside Kharya. <BR><BR>They were closing in on him, and he was already shoving himself againt a tree. She approached, perhaps unnoticed, except by one across the way from her. <BR><BR>Kharya nodded, and at the same time, the ran out of their hiding places at the orcs. They pulled out their blades simontaneously(sp, sorry) and as they got nearer to eachother, one spoke.<BR><BR>"<i>I'm Kharya, Ranger from Gondor.</i>"She killed an orc as she spoke.<BR><BR>"<i>Adramir. I'm from Rivendell.</i>" She assumed Kharya had understood that she was an elf, being that she was from Imladris. <BR><BR>Past the orcs, Kharya could see the little boy running, running away from the sight of the battle. Which, of course, was her intention.<BR>

The boy threw a look over his shoulder, and forgetting to watch where he was going slammed right into Karine. He reeled back startled, and looked at her in shock and fear. Karine smiled gently and spread her hands wide to indicate that she meant him no harm. A basket hanging by it's handle on the crook of her arm. "It's alright," she said softly. She considered him for a moment and her brows knit themselves together slightly. "Where are you going?" She asked, she had not heard the clamour that the orcs made, for the sound was muffled by the trees and moss of the forest, nor had she smelled their stench for the wind was blowing the wrong way. The boy cast another apprehensive glance over his shoulder and then looked back at her. Hovering on the edge of indescision.

He didn't know if he could trust her but he decided to take a chance.<BR>"Big, black, monsters" he said with fear in his voice and eyes. The boy had never seen these strange monsters, he didn't know their right name but they sure looked like monsters. The woman looked suddenly alert and worried.<BR><BR>"Where, where are they," she spoke fast and loudly at first them remembered that it was a child that she was talking about. She kneeled down to him and looked assureingly into his eyes. "Where were these monsters??" the woman asked. The young boy pointed behind himself and into the trees. "In there, about 500ft," he said, he knew the woods well but now it was the last place he wanted to linger. "Go home and stay inside," the woman instructed him and he obeyed, dashing the opposite way as soon as the woman left.<BR><BR>**********************************<BR><BR>Mealwhile in the clearing Adramir and Kharya had defeated about five of the orcs and their carcasses lay near the outskirts of the clearing. Adramir blocked the repeated blows of the two orcs upon her. One slipped and was one moment later slain, the other followed not far after. Kharya was battleing two herself and seemed to be tireing. Several of the orcs scattered after the two warriors began the attack, and some left to look for the boy in a band of three. Adramir was across the clearing from and she was faltering, the mortals skill was great but so were the orcs. She was making her way over the grass to help the woman but was met with steel off her gaurd. The orc had been hiding behind a large tree and sprang out at Adramir when she passed. She defended herself, barely missing his sword, and attacking with her blade. He was the most difficult one so far, he was the leader, she could see by the extravence, if you could call it that, of his amour. She kept having to dodge instead of attack, which was not her fighting style and she could see the mortal woman decapitate one of the orcs but as she constrated on the one the other took advantage of the oppertuinity.

Karine saw the orcs coming and fought the urge to throw up at the sight of them. She looked over her shoulder quickly and could still see the boy running as hard as he could through the underbrush. Karine was not a fighter by nature, didn't even own any weapons but knew she had to do something to prevent the orcs from getting at the boy. The orcs hadn't spotted her yet. She cast about for something to fight against them with. She managed to find a fallen tree branch the size and shape of a club, and several fist-sized stones which she tucked hastily in her apron pockets. She calculated the path of the orcs, and found a tree with a low limb that could put her just out of their reach. She scrambled up the tree as quickly as her makeshift club would allow and clung tightly to the limb, praying feverishly that the deep greens and browns would allow her to stay realitively hidden. It worked. The orcs were about to pass unsuspectingly under her tree when she reached down and swung the club right at the leaders head. The rotten wood shattered but the impact had been enough that the orc momentarily stumbled and gave her enough time to begin pelting stones at the three of them. When the swipe of a sword came dangerously close to her, she climbed the tree even higher and sat on that branch, thanking heaven profusely that none of the three had a bow.

"<i> AAHHHHH!!! </i>"A large orc slashed into Kharya's upper arm. She lunged forward and jabbed her sword into his stomach. He fell to the ground and another took his place. 'Will they ever die?!?' she thought. <BR><BR>"<i> I can't take it anymore! </i>" Kharya whistled, signaling Rain to come to her. "<i>I must ride. I suggest you do the same. You would do no good dead. Here, get on.</i>" Kharya mounted fast and rode over to pick up the elf. She got on fast and they rode off very fast towards the next town.<BR><BR>The orcs couldn’t follow; they were too slow. "<i> Poor kid. </i>"She said when they finally stopped at the nearest inn. "<i> I wonder how he is now. Ouch! My arm! I wonder if there is a doctor nearby. </i>"<BR><BR>They went inside and found a table. Inside, they found much to their surprise, the little boy who they had saved from the orcs. Kharya wrapped her arm in some cloth she ripped off her cloak. Adramir had bruises all over. A waiter came and offered them some water, and they accepted.<BR><BR>~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~<BR><BR>Karine knocked out the orcs running towards her with one blow from her makeshift club. She scrambled down the tree and moved rather quickly in the direction that the little boy had run in.<BR>

As she ran, Karine contemplated the reasons for Orcs wanting the little boy. This behavior was uncommon. They normally preyed upon small villages and killed everyone they found. <BR> The boy had left a clear trail through the underbrush, but it stopped suddenly as if he had been grabbed from above. Karine listened and tried to sense any impeding danger. The sounds of fighting had ceased and all was quiet in the forest. <BR> "How could one small boy disappear into thin air?" she thought to herself.<BR><BR>**********<BR><BR>

Karine bit her lip thoughtfully as tried to think of where the little boy could have gone. She pulled on her ear in a nervous habit, and looked quickly around, trying to stop her swirling thoughts long enough to figure out what she should do next. She was shaking from her encounter with the orcs, all the energy she had summoned to fight them had quickly drained out of her. At a loss, she turned towards the nearest town, hoping that her guess was right, and that the boy would head for civilization. She stopped at the inn, thinking it the most reliable place to find any news of the boy, and to her surprise found that he and two women with him were arleady seated at a table there. She hovered unsure by the door, wondering if she should turn now and go home, seeing that the boy was safe with these people, this was unlike her to drop everything and run after some half-wild boy. Still, she decided, it would be best to stay a while and be sure that these peoples intentions were correct.

<BR> Karine finally made it to the inn where Khraya and Adramir were and sat at the nearest table, thinking it might be too awkward to sit with them now. She leaned back in her seat to hear their conversation better. <BR>~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~<BR><BR> Adramir and Kharya were talking of the strange ambush the orcs had on the little boy. Out of the corner of their eyes, they saw the little boy run out.<BR> "<i>It's not how they usually fight.</i>" Adramir announced, having much experience with orc battles.<BR> They continued over a meal and decided to find the little boy the orcs were interested in. The innkeeper brustled by with a plate in each hand. He returned empty handed and Kharya stopped him. <BR> "<i>Excuse me, do you know a little boy- about 7- with brown hair?</i>" The keeper looked at her in disbelief. "<i>He's about 3 feet tall and is maybe a little 'special'. He lives in this village. He was here not long ago.</i>"<BR> Innkeeper was a little more comfortable with the further discription of the youth. "<i>Oh, you mean little Nimar Nuthdon. Yes, he lives two houses left of here and across the street.</i>" With that, he nodded his head and went back behind the bar. <BR> "<i>Well, shall we?</i>" Adramir got up and started towards the door, pausing to wait for Kharya.<BR><BR>

*******<BR>Washing day was her least favorite day. What made it easier was when her son talked with her while she worked. <BR>"Momma" the child's scream made her straighten instantly. The only other time she heared him scream like that, was when he had one of his nightmares. The boy flew into her arms sobbing and muttering incoherent words into the neck of her dress. <BR>"What is it, little one?" She cooed softly<BR>"Monsters...in the woods...kept running...after me..." he whimpered in terror. "Monsters" was a word that had alwasy been applied to Orcs. Her grandfather had told him stories and always called them that. Fear struck her in the heart like a mallet. All the things the wizard had told her was coming to pass. Why him? Why now? He was so young and scared. <BR>*********<BR><BR>

"Sir.....................Sir?.................SIR!"Repan awoke thanks to the yell "WHAT?" He yelled. "um....sir? The orcs..............""what about them?""They um............failed sir."<BR>"WHAT?!HOW?" "Um,sir? some warriors came and defended it." At this Repan laughed. "So, the boy has his own Bodyguards?" He laughed again. " Fine! Send two armys, each bigger than the first, let one go fight the warriors, the other burn the town down house by hous until the little boy is dead."

Kharya and Adramirfiled out the front door of the inn, and Karine followed slightly behind. they crossed the street and counted three houses down. There was a woman a a small boy outside. <BR>"Can I help you three?"She said in a somewhat harsuh voice-being suspious they were spies.<BR>"No mommy,"the boy jumped in "they are the ones who saved me. From the monsters."<BR>His mother looked into each of their eyes, to be sure she could somewhat trust them. the each stared back, with nothing to hide. <BR>"Well, what do you want?"She said when they had passed the stare.<BR>"May we speak somewhere more...private?"Adramir said before Kharya or Karine could speak. <BR>"Of course. I just set the table for lunch. Won't you joim us?"<BR>They all nodded and stepped inside.<BR>She kept a cozy house, all neat and tidy. Much like that of a hobbit hole.<BR>Nimar's mother ushered them to sit and brought a meal to the table. <BR>"Mrs.Nuthdon,"<BR>"Miss." They gave her a puzzled look. "I've never been married." She said.<BR>They looked at their laps for a brief second, for it was frowned upon the bear a child before being wed. <BR>"Oh."Karine muttered, unable to stop herself.

*The heavy iron door flew open, and with a loud bang hit the wall. Lenore stepped in the small dark room. Her dark hair shone in the fire light as she looked at Repan. He sat in his chair with his eyes closed and unmoving. Gliding her fingers across the mantel, she walked over to his desk. She reached out and adjusted his collar. His hand shot up, but she was quicker. Her pale hand gripped his wrist, one eye opened and then the other.*<BR>"Miss me?"<BR>*Her cold voice had a haunting tone to it. She let go of his wrist and Rapen sat up straight.*<BR>"You are late."<BR>"I'm on time."<BR>"Your time at least."<BR>*She smiled coldly.*<BR>"The boy is still alive. A group is helping him, I watched as they killed the orcs. Sloppy fighters, but theres a lot of them."<BR>"And you didn't kill them?"<BR>"No, too many."<BR>"Great. Well I sent out two armies of orcs to kill them."<BR>"I know."<BR>"You do?"<BR>"Silly, your stuttering servant just told me."<BR>*She walked over to a chair in front of the desk and sat down. She brushed some hair away from her eyes as she watched Repan sitting deep in thought.*<BR>"They are on the move. The orcs won't find them in the town. They may be stupid enough to stay, but I doubt it. One of them knows what they are doing."<BR>*She said, twirling a strand of hair arund her finger.*

********<BR><BR>Tirza sat down and looked hard at the three women. Then sighing, she began to tell them what they had obviously come to hear. <BR>"I was mistress to an elf for some years before he married. My son is half-elf though he doesn't look it, except for his eyes and hair. The day after my former lover was killed by a band of maruading orcs, I found out I was pregnant. Seven months later, I had a son. Exactly one month after his birth, an Istari named Pallando came through this area and told me that my son would save the world from a great evil that would arise from the depths of Mordor. He had been sent to warn me not to run, but to go on living as if nothing would happen because if I ran, the evil would follow me no matter what. I asked for more detail, but he would say no more. He did tell me that myself and four other women would help my son during the quest, but that in the end, he must defeat the evil himself."<BR>Here she stopped and gazed at Adramir, who seemed to be very surprised at this revelation. <BR>"What is it?" Tirza asked with sudden alarm.<BR>"Did the Istari Pallando tell you anything else?" Adramir asked with shock written all over her face.<BR><BR>********

Karine realized she must be staring and immediately tried to tone down her expression. A look of composure failed, the best she could come up with was a slightly puzzled smile.<BR><BR> Karine was the type of woman who lives simply and alone, with no interference from the outside world, save on market days. Even then, her contact was generally limited to plain ordinary people like the baker and the cobbler who had nothing to do all day but gossip about each other and the rest of their neighbors. <BR><BR>Suddenly her whole world had been turned upside down by the sudden apperance of a small boy, and she found herself somehow swept along into the middle of a elaborate plot of orcs and Mordor and evil, in which the outcome seemed to lay in the fate of a terrified child she had happened to run into in the forest.<BR><BR>A million questions spun through her head, but she snapped her mouth shut as they threatened to pour forth, thinking that if she just listened, surely many of them would be explained away.

Kharya was eager to hear more, but she felt herself drifting away deep into her mind. She heard a strong, familiar voice in her mind. <b>NOW!!! YOU MUST GO NOW!!!</b> Then, her whole body jolted backwards and everyone present stared wide-eyed at her in shock. <BR><BR>"<i>Uhh, are you ok?</i>" Little Nimar querred. <BR><BR>"<i>We have to go. The boy especially. But I'm going to need as much help as possible.</i>Kharya announced, and looked at each in the eyes.

Rolling a log onto the fire with her boot, she spoke.*<BR>"You could live somewhere better, not in this cave. Just let me -"<BR>"Don't you have something to do?!"<BR>*He yelled, slamming his fist on the desk. She didn't flinch but looked at him with her hollow stare.

<i>Opal rode her chestnut stallion, Acrolith, past the house where she knew the small boy lived that she had been following, she dismounted and checked Acrolith over for any damage to his tack. He was wearing a jointed pelham off that he had double reins which she tucked under the stirrups of the GP saddle he wore and made sure that his standing martingale was in one piece as she had just just had a run in with a couple of armies of yrch that were headed towards them. Then she checked herself smoothing out her red/copper shoulder length hair, and brushing the dust off her black sleevless top, her black trousers and burgandy trench coat. She then checked her sword and knife incase of any lingering yrch blood. Walking up to the door she rubbed the tops of her long riding boots up the back of the opposite leg and raised her hand to knock on the door when her elvish ears heard someone inside say.</i><BR><BR>"We have to go. The boy especially. But I'm going to need as much help as possible"<BR><BR><i>A look of confusion entered her alert amber eyes then it left and she proceded to knock on the door. The voices stopped inside and someone opened the door.</i><BR><BR>"I have some important news I think you ought to hear. Its about you're son."<BR><BR><i>Opal was let in and she stood there feeling very out of place then the young elf said to knowbody in paticular,</i><BR><BR>"There are two armies of yrch, coming this way and I believe they are after the boy. I have managed to delay them slightly but if you want him to survive he has to leave now." <BR><BR><i>The group gave her a very strange look and she continued</i><BR><BR>"I have been following the boy for a while now since I saw that the yrch had picked him out to kill, I have a great sympathy with anyone who is singled out by them. As when I was younger they captured me, burnt, tortued and starved me. When I finally managed to escape I vowed to kill every single last one of them and whoever controlled them. I do this so that no-one else has to go through what what I did. He must leave now!"<BR><BR><i>Opal looked out of a window and saw a handsome eagle flying towards the house, she walked over to the door and let him in and Kerrik sat on Opal's shoulder. Opal then turned back to the group of people waiting for their responce.</i>

Tirza was in a state of shock. She looked at the new-comer and then at the others in the room. There was Adramir, Kharya, Karine, herself, and now Opal. The five women all destined for the same quest, as the Istari had told her, were now gathered in the same room, and the quest had obviouly began.<BR><BR>"Nimar and I don't have horses." was her only reply. <BR><BR>"Don't worry about that now; we can get you mounts. What is most important is leaving and leaving now." said Opal.

(ooc: Kool we finally have five people!! )<BR><BR><i>"Fine then, let us go then. Are you all ready to travell, it may prove to be a long journey."</i><BR><BR>Adramir and Kharyas packs were at the door. And this woman that had just walked in seemed to have no pack with her. Adramir figured that that Tirza had not travelled in her lifetime at all. She was a simple townswoman and led a simple life, a quest to save her son was probably not in her plans. Even so it had to be done.<BR><BR><i>"I will be back, Kharya come with me, we will get supplies for the trip."</i> She said as she headed for the door.<BR><BR><i>"Do not leave for any reason, Karine watch them and let nothing through the door unless it be us."</i> <BR><BR>Her and Kharya were outside now, the sun warmed their faces, it hardly seemed possible that in a small town, seemingly in the middle of nowhere, that such a great evil was heading.

Karine nodded silently in her astonishment,and dutifully took up a position by the door. Wondering what she would do if somthing really did try to get in. <i>How is it that I'm somehow involved in this?</i> She wondered. It was all well and good to begin talking about destiny and prophesy when you were someone like Kharya or Adramir, but for Karine, the whole concept was still completely baffling. But the others seemed to accept her without question, that must count for something. Surely she had been chosen for a reason, as anyone could see that she was clearly no one great or important, and by no means a fighter.

*Lenore looked at the town below. Her head was cocked to one side, she found it amusing. They went about their hustle and bustle, so blind to the danger that was nearing. Lenore bumped off towns much larger than this one. The number she killed was forgotten, too great to keep track. But no one knew who or what did this, not even the wisest wizard or the high elves.<BR>She stood for a while, watching the little dots of people walk around. She changed into some lighter, town-like clothing. Her blouse was a pale blue and her pants a tan color. She detested them, but those rangers were everywhere.<BR>She made a small fire in the woods on top of the high cliff. Night was approaching much faster than she had thought, but the dark was her time to play.<BR>She took a seat on an old fallen tree. Watching the fire dance and listening to it crackle, put her slightly at ease. Though her being at ease was much like a ranger sitting next to an orc. She took o a small dagger and began to clea the light instrument.*

Adramir and Kharya were nearly back to the house. The small town was just that and they found their way around quite easily. They returned with two extra bags and cloaks, three steeds and three extra swords because Adramir noticed that Karine didn't carry one. That was fine if she didn't like weapons but protection for the boy was the task at hand and a sword could prove handy. Once at the house they divided the food and supplies so that all the womens was equal. <BR> <BR> <i>"I wanna carry somethin too mama, thats not fair!"</i> Nimar said. A smile krept across Adramirs face, she didn't have much contact with children and they had a wonderfull view of the world. He was appointed the task of carrying the blankets everyone pulled from their packs, though they all could have fit easily. Dusk was coming upon the town, it was later than expected. Adramir did not want to stay the night here, the feeling grew with the the night.<BR> <BR> <i>"Let us leave, we can get at least three hours of travell in tonite, we should not linger."</i> Everyone agreed grudgingly, they all wanted to stay at least one more night in a comfortable bed. The steeds were tied outside and they packed them up. Kharya, Karine,Opal, and Tirza were all alone on their steeds but Nimar sat in the front of Adramir. He wanted origionaly to sit with his mother but she convinced him to sit with Adramir. Tirza didn't know how to fight, at least not well, and Adramir was a warrior and could protect her son better than she ever could. <BR> <BR> Now that seating arrangements were made, they set out, discretely and right in to the forest as to not be seen. The wood was dence and it was nearly dark already when the entered. At first they headed west and after several hours they stopped.<BR> <BR> <i>"Tommorow we will set out early, Bree is far away, and Rivendell is farther. We will head north and once we strike the North-South road we will follow that to Bree."</i> Adramir said surveying the camp site. Kharya was starting a fire all the while, there was nothing to fear tonite. Nimar grew excited when he heard of Rivendell and Bree, the old women in the town told stories about Nine-Fingered Frodo and his journey through the now famous cities. Adramir was bombarded with questions about Rivendell and Bree and all the other places that she had been. They sat merrily round the fire, telling stories, and eating the delicious supper that Tirza had made in only a short while. Nimar fell asleep almost right after dinner, as the Adramir sang of the places and people that were custom of her people.<BR>Adramir took the first watch, they didn't think they would need one but decided on it anyways, there was no need to take chances. The others dropped off to sleep and Adramir was left to the sounds of the night woods. She passed her time singing in the soft, high voice that most elves posessed, until she was relieved by Kharya.

Kharya woke after about two hours of sleep to take over watch duty. She silently sallied to where Adramir sat and smiled at her.<BR>"Go take some rest, friend. We should leave in at most four hours."<BR>Adramir nodded, yawned, and went off to lean against a tree to "sleep" the way that elves do.<BR>Kharya's watch was very dull, and she often found herself nodding off to sleep, but she quickly woke herself back up. <BR>As she looked around, she noticed how each of them were so right for being her, even Tirza who thought she wasn't good for this particular job. Kharya knew they were called there for a reason, and that would soon be revealed. <BR>Suddenly, a cool breeze brushed past her, making the little hairs on her arm stand up. Just then, she got a chill down her spine, which never happened for no reason. Kharya's eyes darted from tree to tree, rock to rock. <BR>"The enemy is close. I have to get them up."She stated aloud to herself. So she brustled to each seemingly lifeless body and shook it until they awoke. They all looked at her, wide eyed, and said B]GO!</b><BR>She awoke with a start. There was beads of sweat forming on her brow. As she was wiping away with her sleve, a cool breeze ran all around her.<BR>"Oh no."She said in dismay. <BR>Kharya stepppped over to the body cloestest to her until she awoke. Then she went to the next until they were all rising. <BR>"I had a dream, about us now. There is someone behind us, and coming ever nearer. I'm sorry you couldnt have more sleep, but we <i>need</i>to go. Now."<BR>They all jammed their posessions into their bags, not caring about who had the lighter bag. The six mounted and, despite their fatigue, galloped through the mornig mist in a northerly direction.

*The fire had died well before the morning sun hit the tops of the trees. Lenore stood up slowly, she had not slept that night. She needed no rest, there was a more effective, alternative method. She gathered her things, which was not much. The dagger she had been cleaning was still on the ground, she stooped down and slid it into her boot.<BR>She stood up straight and smelled the crisp air. The small company was on the move, heading north. It was right where she wanted them to go. She took her time cleaning up the clearing. Though the group ws on horse, they had taken the much longer and more tedious way. She laughed to herself and left the woods. The horse she had used to get to the child's small town had wandered off. This left Lenore to travel on foot, but she figured she would still arrive at Bree around the same time the small company would. She could use some good food and a soft bed at the local tavern. <BR>She walked slowly down the path humming to herself. It was rarely used by anyone other than rangers, for its markings were almost impossible to see.<BR>Days passed, travelling became tiresome and rather boring for the black haired assassin. The endless walking had gotten her, she left the path to find the nearest town. After a day of wanderng she found a small town. Its name was unimportant to her, all she wanted was a horse. She looked around and waited until the darkness set in.<BR>The whole town was quiet except for the lone tavern. She did not enter but look at the horses tied to the posts outside. She was in the middle untying the strongest beast when a mounted gaurd trotted up to her. He eyed her for a moment and then spoke in a gruff voice.*<BR>"What are you doing? That horse does not belong to you."<BR>*Lenore looked at him with her hollow stare. His anger increased and he steered the large beast even closer to her. She glanced at the fine black horse and smiled coldly.*<BR>"Speak!"<BR>*He yelled, his hand drifting closer to his sword. Lenore pushed him off the horse and mounted quickly, she turned it around and faced the gaurd. He stood up slowly, yelling a few obscene words and shouting to the other mounted gaurds. But none came, she drew her sword out and began gallop towards the man. He began to run but he was no match for the horse. She held the weapon up high and in one swift motion the gaurd fell. His body crashed down in the muddy streets, his head rolling beside him with a horrified expression permanently on his face.<BR>She left the town quickly, not wishing to linger. She found the path and stopped a while. She dismounted and wiped her blade on the grass. Once it was free of blood she slid it into her belt and looked at the horse. She patted its nose and smiled.*<BR>"We'll name you Ancilla. You didn't like your master did you? But you like me, yes?"<BR>*She said soothingly, the horse grunted and rubbed its nose into her hair. She looked down the dark path and got back up on the horse.*<BR>"We need to make up for the lost time. We still have a long while until we arrive at Bree."<BR>*She pressed her heel into the beast's side and trotted into the black woods.*

(ooc: i don't mean to be annoying but actually it would take like a month or longer to get to Bree from where we started. Can you fly or somethin??<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>)<BR><BR><BR>Their journey went on, uneventfull for several weeks with nothing out of the oridanary. Tirza and Nimar wearied from travelling, but the others seemed to be fine with, though bored of, the trip. The days were becoming redundant as they neared Bree, they would reach the local inn by tommorow, before dark. Nimar was becoming excited to be so close to the city and the whole day he didn't stop telling them how excited he was. They stopped early, they would only have a half days travell tommorow and decided to have an early night. They whole group was rather close now and very protective of Nimar. As Tirza cooked their dinner they all talked, as was now their custom. They discusses how long they would stay in Bree before continuing to Rivendell.<BR><i>"I think only a short time in Bree would be best, a week or so. For some reason i wish to hurriedly get to Rivendell, though i cannot explain."</i>

Tirza was tired from the contiuous travel, but she could tell her muscles were hardening. Soon, with the help of Kharya's combat lesson, she would be as strong and lithe as the others. She would also feel more equipped to defend her son's life. <BR><BR>Nimar wasn't doing so well. When he wasn't asleep, they were plauged with constant question or miscelaneous babble about whatever came to his young mind. He alternately road on each of the women's horses, but most often with Adramir because she had been to all the places they were soon to reach. <BR><BR>Food was another problem entirely. The rations they had been able to procure in the tiny village wasn't enough to feed six travle-hungry people for very long. One of them would have to go into a the next town and buy food. It would be too dangerous for all of them to go together. Five women and one small boy would raise too many questions, and the villagers would be more likely to remember them if anyone should come through later asking questions about a traveling group.<BR><BR>A deep, forboding feeling had risen in all their minds. Nightmares came to all of them, especially Nimar. Only when they were awake and on watch were they at peace in the darkness and sometimes not even then. They were being followed at a distance, and they knew why. <BR><BR>Adramir noticed Tirza's worried face. "We will stop and buy food and supplies at the next village or town. You needn't worry about that."<BR><BR>"It's not that that worries me. Not at the moment anyway. My son's life is in grave danger and all I can do is help him confront it. Not being able to protect him completely and make whatever this is makes me feel helpless." she replied<BR><BR>"I have never been a mother, and I don't emvy you postion at this time. But, know this, it is my saced duty to protect Nimar, and I will give my life in that service." <BR><BR>

Clang, clang, clatter. <BR>“No. Block, ok good, now, take advantage of my open arm. Very good! You’re getting much better at this Tirza." Kharya smiled wide to see such improvement in such a short time. "Shall we break? My stomach is telling me it's near dinner time."She said jokingly.<BR>Before and during dinner that evening, they discussed supplies and the awful feeling present. <BR>"I will ride after dinner until i find the next town to buy suppplies and food. We shouldn't need too much, so i will only bring Rain." Kharya offered. "I will ride back here and probably find you all arousing. Will that work fine with everyone?"<BR><BR>
