Five: Bree (prompt: Sheaf)
They left at dawn, crossing the silent, mist-shrouded Barrow-downs. A pale sun rose above the hills, and as the mist cleared Bree appeared before them.
“We should call at the Pony. Estel may have been there and left news.”
Elrohir nodded his agreement, waiting in the courtyard until Elladan reappeared, thrusting a sheaf of letters into his pack. “He has been and gone,” he announced grimly. “With several Hobbits, and the Nazgul in hot pursuit.”
Elrohir straightened. “We go after him.”
Elladan hesitated. “No. He is long gone. We ride for home – and hope we find Estel on the way.”
