Tales My Brothers Told Me



“My brothers warned me of the times they visited the Greenwood,” Aragorn glanced back at Legolas. “Of course, if you know them, you will understand that I pay little heed to their tall tales. Giant spiders? What nonsense!”


Legolas eyed the forest around them warily. There were dark, impenetrable shadows where spiders could lurk. “Aragorn …”


“They think I am still a child, to be scared of monsters!” Aragorn continued, oblivious to the web above him.


“Look out!” Legolas fired, and a spider tumbled down to land at their feet.


Aragorn stared at it in horror. “Balrog’s balls! What’s that?”
