Pippin cowered behind Legolas as Aragorn and Boromir raced toward the bridge with swords drawn. Andúril flamed in the darkness, but not nearly as bright as Gandalf shone against the shadow and flame of the beast he faced - the Balrog, Legolas had called it. Its roar shook the ground and walls around them, and Pippin could hardly hear Gandalf shouting at it.

It was the most horrible thing he had ever seen, all shadows and dark smoke and fire and fear. Even Legolas was trembling and pale. Pippin whispered shakily to Merry, "Uncle Bilbo never told any stories about this!"
