Challenge; Goblin. Adding Insult to Injury

Last year azalaisdep and I played a form of drabble tennis here to come up with A series of Unfortunate Medical Mishaps. For this current challenge I have returned to the same theme. The sons of Elrond are entertaining a friend by recounting to her some of the stories of injuries sustained during 'the bad times'.

Adding Insult to Injury

“The Rohirrim have a tradition of guising at the equinox,” Elladan said. “There is some mystery to the equality of day and night that causes them to dress as the ghosts of their past… or caricatures of their enemies.”

“So when we stumbled…” Elrohir got no further.

“We never stumble. We walked slowly…”

Walked slowly into the hamlet on that night, hoping for a chance to rest…”

“We were beaten off, unwanted, from the first house we approached…”

“And he was nearly crippled by a blow to his knee…”

“By a small goblin, and his grandmother, wielding a frying pan!”
