Tip-tap.

Squeak. Creak.

A hoary form loomed over the Hedge. Outthrust branches with gnarled twig-fingers splayed on the window, scraping and tapping to the tune of a terrible laugh, dry as the rustle of willow-leaves.

Glass shattered.

Questing fingers groped inside the room…


"Pip, wake up."

Pippin sat bolt upright, heart pounding.

"The Willow-man again?" Merry asked softly.

"Aye." Pippin grimaced. “Why don’t I dream of Ents instead?”

“We’re too close to the Old Forest. You can sense his malice; he hasn't forgotten, Pip."

Knight of Gondor, Esquire of Rohan: but sleepless they held each other until morning’s first light.
