The Road North
Elrohir drew his horse to a halt, listening. All was quiet, but it was not the watchful, fearful silence there had been on the ride to Imladris. There was peace here. Willows trailed graceful branches in the stream and high overhead an eagle soared on hidden currents of air.
The land spoke of no threat, and he knew instinctively that the Nazgûl were far away. But where?
He gave a sharp cry and the eagle wheeled and drew closer, swooping down to hover above. The willows quivered in the draught of his powerful wingbeats.
“Gwaihir! What news from the north?”
