A Foe Ahead, Behind Us Dread

Breathing hard as they reach a starlit clearing north of the Forest Road, scuttling swollen horror evaded behind them, the two Elves exchange shaky smiles of relief.

“I think – we lost it...”

“No thanks to you,” Taurlaegel gasps. “You need – to get quicker – on the draw!”

“And you to shoot straighter,” his companion retorts. “I swear that one was horse-sized! Did you see those horrible pale eyes? And the legs...”

“Your Father'll – be livid if he catches us – what'd he say last time? 'Reckless young idiots'?”

Legolas punches his shoulder, grins.

“Then better hope we can give him the slip!”
