The Darkness Behind



As he stepped through the doorway, utter darkness fell upon him.  His torch cast a tiny, fitful circle of light, but the shadow beyond was oppressive.  Somewhere ahead walked the rest of the company with Aragorn at their head, and Elrohir at his side – yet their torches were lost in the ever deepening gloom.


Behind him … behind him was shadow, and darkness, and a sullen muttering of restless voices.  Dread clawed at his spine as he heard a heavy step behind him, until he risked a glance downwards.


“Walk with me, master dwarf.  We will guard the rear together.”
