You might patrol many times before you encountered an orc – although the spiders were an all too frequent hazard.

But, as they neared the source of the sound, it was clear that Legolas had hit it lucky on his first tour of duty. Although his father would doubtless not have described it thus!

The signal ‘wait’, and scouts went further forward. Then the signal ‘fifteen to twenty yrch’.

He could feel his heart race, and purposely slowed it with deep breaths.

Finally the signal ‘prepare’.

Drawing an arrow from his quiver, he rejoiced at this chance to prove his worth.
