"For so many many years I have dwelled here and know I must leave....why do the gods torment me so. All I seek is peace and rest. The battles of this place affect me not...I wish for only solitairdy and ti know nothing of the wars of middle earth.

"Don't worry it is all under control, he's his son, it's all good, Darous will come back, he promised me."
*Arwen looks hopeful out of the window*
"He will come back. But now, Gorwarth and I are his protectors, even if he doesn't seem to need to be any. I will teach his the arts of the Elves, control and respect. Gorwarth will teach him to fight as a true and valuable fighter. Rawien, will you help us?You knowledge will be needed, the war draws near, he'll need ready as soon as possible. Will you?"
Lightning stuck and thunder rolled loud far away over the mountains. "There is a storm coming." Rawien said. "We best get inside -- Oh no!!" she gasped suddenly as the sound of orc voices was heard.

"Legolas needs us!"
*The orcs came and charged them. Arwen didn't even move. In a second, she took her silver silk hood, and threw it on one side. Under it, there was the most beautiful white gold armor. The brightness of it surprised everyone and even the rocs had to suddenly stop and cover their eyes. That gave time for everyone to get ready to battle, there were hunderds of orcs.*
"Friends, it's time to rock"
*Arwen took her white gold sword, and started fighting, along with her friends. They noticed that her tecnique was different, she was fighting like never before, and she was using elf powers like never before, something had changed in her.*
"Everyone all right?"
Running into the stables, she quickly untied two horses. Mounting one, she took hold of the other and led them out and back down the slope to the battle. "Does anyone need a horse?" she laughed as she galloped straight through the middle of a host of orcs, scattering them everywhere.
*Arwen gets on the horse with the grace that nobody else has*
"Lets go Rawien! they will make it alone, but I am not so sure about Legolas, I heard his cry, have you heard it too?"
*Rides away followed by Rawien*
"We'll find him!" Arwen replied.
"But what about Gorwath and Gokou? We've left them on their own!"
"Ride on, they'll be fine, Gorwarth is guided by my love, The kid never needed help.........."
"I dunno." Arwen replied, "But we'll figure that riddle out later. For now we have to save Legolas!" she mounted again, and they both rode through as the gates swung shut again behind them.
They set off again into a gallop, and plunged into the dark forest..
*But then something happened, Arwen suddenly stopped, and started breathing very hard.*
*She wispered. The another scream, and the sound of something falling*
"Don't go Arwen, you'll die"
*arwen kept going, I have to save him"
*She rode on, took out her sword, and charged the Nazgul, aftre a couple of minutes of fight, she saw Legolas on the ground. Still fighting she dismounted, and took Legolas and got up again.*
"Rawien, lets go, he's sick! He's been wounded with a Mourgol blade. COME!"
*She rode off again*
"Behinde you Arwen"
*She screamed, she thought Arwen had been wounded, but a great light had come from Arwen, and the Nazgul had been scared from it, and ran away, along with the others."
"hey look a fight...but I am enjoying this sandwich but what the heck"
Gokou finished his sandwich and ran into the frey chasin a Nazgul down and smiting it with a rather large axe.
"We have to be quick, he's leaving this Middle Earth"
"His Soul is!"
"I get sandwiches handed to me I think I can hang here for a wee bit longer." and he munched on both the sandwiches and made his way to the kitchen......where suddenly he heard a racket and as he dandered in he saw several goblins ransackin the place......
"You dare to take all this food over my dead body mate."
and so he grabbed a wooden pole and whacked the goblins on the head and beat them down...."
"All this fightin' is hard work I fancy a snack but not lembas bread *yukkk*" as Gokou took a bite and stuck out his tongue.
[Edited on 13/11/2003 by Grondmaster]
Gokou rubbed his chin and pondered what had just occured.
"I never ge tired of it, even though I've been living off of it for the last few months". She grabs the uneaten part of the labmas bread, takes a bite, and contiues with her previous course of action.
*as Nuldanquë was expalining a goblin jumped on her back. She stuffed some lembas in it's mouth and it jumped off and ran away srapping it's tounge off.*
"now does this get any better..."
"We need back up here folks!!!!!" shouted Gokou as he jumped at the goblins. They drew there blades and there cuts were true...." yikes that was too close for comfort and you just ruined a perfectly good shirt...grrrrrrr" and so a angered Gokou brings out his bo staff....
"its clobberin' time" roared Gokou
"Gokou, could.... could you tell me what you are trying to do? do you plan to take all Saruman's army on by yourself?"
*Arwen could believe what she was seeing, but then a thought struck her*
"We need to send out a call for anybody who will come to help, we need to take everyone who is still alive to a safe place, and have every strong man fight to protect them, the Huruk-hai will soon come, we do not have much time. Who will ride out with me to find all the survivors of Sauron's first attack? We need to find a safe place, where could we take everyone? some place safe, anyone has any idea?"
*Arweb thought, the Mines of Moria were hard to get into, but sadly once the enemy is in, it's hard for us to get out.... that won't do. Rivendell is much too vulnerable*
"Anyone please, if you know where we could take everyone we'll find, please speak, we do not have much time left!"
"Nothing, nobody survived... so many... so few have survived, Rawien, what shall we do?"
"No... no no.... this is not good, the light of the Even Star is fading, I don't have enough power to save her.... what must i do..."
*Then, Arwen heard a scream.. a high pitched scream like one of a ....*
*She screamed. No it's couldn't be, they had been killed... but no now she remembered what darous had said before leaving her, they can't be killed, but why not... and then she thought, if i could steal one of their horses... they might be faster than Rawien's horse... If I could just get close enough to one to sing to it... if I could just..... But there wasn't enough time for thinking, she had to run, she put rawien down, and she covered her with the body of a dead child, so that they wouldn't see her gleaming dress. Then she grabbed her sword*
"i will nto leave you here to die, my friend, I lost too many people already to leave you too"
*She run towards the nazgul, and the EvenStar started shining, the Nazgul fell off their horses, and run away... Arwen didn't understand, but she knew that was her chance, she started singing, one of the Horses approached her, and bent down... he was under her spell. It wasn't gonna last, she had to be quick. She took Rawien, and started riding towards the nearest town, hoping to find someone who could help her.*
"Run, run... Don't worry Rawien, we'll be fine... we will be"
*But in her heart Arwen didn' know what was going to happen, she was scared, scared as she had never been before... Rawien was her friend, she loved her like a sister... and she couldn't feel her heart...but only one thing was on her mind, she had to save her, no matter what.*
"ah well it was a good run and some of them foods were really tasty but I suppose its time for the big guy to come back." and so a light enveloped Gokou and he vanished.
The archers cheered at there victory but it was short lived as the heard a unsheathing of a sword behind them...
"Well they have let this place go to the dogs....but I always liked to do a bit of cleaning"
And as the archers turned all they saw was blackness.
The figure darted between the pillars throwing well aimed axes at nearby orcs.."how I haved missed the killing. but that will certainly change now..." and with a Gurthang raised high he leapt off the balcony and into the horde of orcs..
"You wished to taste blood once again; taste all you wish now." and with a ungodly cry Darous attacked all in his sight.
The Orcs cowered before but one stepped forth. His body was riddled with scars of battle old.
"I will fight you swine of man....."
"I aint no swine of man." a angered bolied in Darous.
"I am half dwarf"
"You our a fool to think you can beat me" laughed Darous
"We'll see whose laughing when I take that pretty face of yours" sneered the Orc as he licked his blade.
"Yer trying to sweet talk me are ye...well it aint gonna work.." and Darous whipped out a throwing axe and let it fly through the air, where it struck the Orc in a rather uncomfortable place.
"I'll rip yer head off for that you" howled the orc as it ran furiously at Darous swinging it weapons in every direction.
Darous readyed Gurthang...and the onslaught began.
Blade struck blade as the two fought, and all around them the howls of the enemy could be heard...
"I dont like the sound of that Rana" remarked one of the guards
"I think we should walk the other way!!!"
"Good plan lets go" and so Rana and Garin headed off in the direction of the courtyard where it was less noisy but just as dangerous.
"You know what you should really do something about yer breath...or just stop it with the flesh eating thing" remarked Darous
"Shut up and fight will you." roared the orc.
"Ok if you insisted and Darous kicked the orc off him and got off the ground. Darous charged at the orc who jumped out of the way and struck his back with his sword.."who is laughing now" laughed the orc
"Well it sure in sneck won't be you you." and Darous picked up Gurthang and with a mighty shout threw it straight at the orc.
The look on the orcs face said it all.
Darous wandered over and pulled out the embedded sword from the orcs chest.
"You... how did you?... but it dosn't matter now... help me... please *she started crying* I can't heal her... I don't know... help me please..."
He wandered over to the still breathing body of Rawien. He placed his hand on her body......
"I know her whoever she is but she aint doin' too good and you also but I can't place you either. Ah well I'll have her fixed up in no time."
Darous started to chant and then he rubbed his hands together like a certain karate teacher who he may have seen in a dream at some time . He let his hands hover over the body and ran them the length of it.
"She is better..best to let her rest for a short time and make sure she doesnt handle any heavy weapons in the next hour or so, only short swords, bows etc...
"What's going on?" she cried...
Darous looks around him and sees the last remainig orcs running from the halls.
He wanders over to Arwen who is tending to Rawien. "It looks like they are retreating for the moment; we should tend to the wounded and see how much damage was done. But we should see 'bout leaving soon, it looks like this place has seen a war."
"So ya gonna tell me whats wrong? Arwen sat on in silence.
Darous sat and noticed a sapling growing underneath a rock...
"see that Arwen..." pointing to the sapling, Arwen looked to it...
"See that sapling its clawin' and growin' its way out from that big rock...it could decide not ta bother and just wither away and die...but it isn't. Its gonna grow and show that rock where ta go."
"So whatever got ye down, ye can beat it lass....."
Arwen looked at his, her eyes filled with tears....
And so stood and....."I shall take the ring Arwen, I will take it to the fires and forever destroy it...its yer decesion lass."
While the two conversed they were watched by other eyes.....
