A Mighty Leap


Frodo did not have to look down to know what would happen if he misjudged the chasm’s width. Shivering, he kept his eyes on his companions, who had already made the leap and were now shouting encouragement. He took a deep breath and then he was airborn, just for a quick beat or two of his heart, before his feet met firm ground again with a satisfyingly solid thump.

It took a few minutes for him to catch his breath and then he looked up. “Was it as deep as that in Moria, Da?”

Sam smiled. “Almost, Frodo-lad. Almost.”
