Darkness Beneath the Boughs

The raid comes swift and violent; clashing chaos under dark trees. Confusion reigns, until -

"They've taken the Gollum-creature! And Calandil, and-"

Their captain's eyes flash. "Galathil, Rumion, with me. Taurlaegel, Falastir, break off left, try to cut them off - break fast! Go!"

They are swift and their arrows deadly - but too few, too late; when they meet hours later, in a clearing far to the south, they're empty-handed.

"Do we go on?"

"Getting too close to... Dol Guldur. I'll not risk the rest of you." Legolas slowly lowers his bow, defeated. "Now I just have to explain this to Father..."


Author's Note:
Yes, yes, I know, twisting the prompt beyond recognition, but all the foodie inspiration had been snarfled by the time I finally got round to this!
