Shhhhh…


My request is denied, I am forbidden to accompany the troops. Tomorrow the host will leave for Edoras continuing on to Gondor, but I am ordered to remain behind, ruling the weak. Leaving my Uncle I make my plans.

Waving farewell I watch the Riders leave the Hold, then go to my tent, and don my armor. My horse waits nearby.

I secretly join the ranks. After a short rest at Edoras we remount. The Holbytla and his pony stand deserted at the roadside. Raising my finger to my lips, I signal silence whispering, “I will bear you before me.”
