Thread: Invasion of the Urak-Hai
<<       >>
Rue looked at Etharion,he seemed a little surprised at this. She gets up,"we should probably get back to the others."
Wow...everything's all so interesting and fast, kinda helps you keep up!
"Who's is the face that lies hidden within? Show yourself."
"I am Althea, cousin to King Elessar himself. I prefer to be thought of as Male, considering my ranking, and I am tougher than many, male or female, you'll come across. My temper is pretty good, but upset, I am a force to be reckoned with. I also prefer being called Lightfoot, especially in front of the other Rangers, who are, by the way, on their way down. And have no fear!" Lightfoot suddenly drew her sword. "I will protect you, life or death, sickness or health." She sheathed her sword again. "I will be here as long as I can be. The other Rangers will be here by nightfall tomorrow."
Don't worry, I'll take care of the whole Ranger coming thing, long as it's okay with Eo. Now I shall see you all later!
Eo looked at Lightfoot with a new reverence. A ranger and a lady! "Well you and the rest of the rangers are certianly welcome here! If i may ask, how were you informed of the coming of the Urak-Hai?"
"Nay, not so much a lady. And word travels quickly through the forest, by mouth of the animals, especially when vile, noisy creatures are passing through."
Alrighty then...that post on the Rangers is coming soon to a thread near you!
"Here they come," was all she could whisper.
By they, she meant the Rangers.
A couple of hours later, some rustling came from in the woods. Soon, a line of about thirty Rangers stood in front of Lightfoot (who flipped the hood of her cloak up) and bowed. She bowed in return, looking them over.
"Thank you very much for coming," she said clearly in Quenya. "Your help is much appreciated."
All but one scattered about, settling in. The one remaining was the leader of the group, named Migelnath, Mic for short.
"When are the Uruks expected Lightfoot?" Mic asked, for Mic didn't know Althea's true identity.
"Anytime soon, Mic," she whispered in return, sitting down by her fire.
They sat together and conversed about the situation.
And a profile for Mic...

Calenia quietly appeared at Eth's side as he walked away from the two lovebirds. After going unnotised for a couple of minutes, she tapped his shoulder.
"So we meet again. Tell me how have you been? It seems like ages since I saw you last."
"I've been wandering again, with some Ranger friends this time. All in all, I've been wasting time again for the sake of nothing better to do."
Mic sighed to himself some, walking into the woods. He kept clenching his fists, angered by Lightfoot. He sat on a rock, above a small stream, and threw some pebbles into the water. Mic sang a lament to himself in elven, not caring who else heard.
"Nay, nothing is wrong M'lady, just, well, just burdens on the mind. It isn't anything at all."
He moved over some and made room for her to sit.
"Nice out here, eh?"
"Lightfoot, my dear friend. How have you been since I saw you last?"
"Cal! How wonderful to see you again! I've been as well as can be expected, yourself? Goodness, how nice to see a familiar face!"
"Battle does, Cal. You know me, a hothead, especially for battle. I really enjoy fighting, especially those dratted Uruks!"
"Hotheaded yes, but always in control and the perfect Uruk killing machine. Whoever sent you made the right choice, and if you'll permit it, I'll fight alongisde you once again."
"I'd be honored to fight alongside you again friend."
She put her hand firmly on Cal's forearms with a grin to her.
"Very honored to."
"well, I guess that settles it then. I'll be staying here and fighting with you, until the Uruks are completely wiped out. I am honoured to be with you again. Shall we join the others or sit here reminiscing for the rest of the night?"
"That doesn't matter to me, but talking would be nice. It was been so long, we have so much catching up to do!"
She sat down with Cal by her fire.
"Tell me, what have you been up to these days?"
"You have always been that way Cal. Oh, just getting into some scraps, wandering here and there disguised as a male, usual."
She laughed a bit, smiling.
"Please don't tell me that all these poor people probably think you're a male?! Then again, it is rather amusing to watch how long it takes them to figure it out, so on second thougt, don't tell them and let's observe. I supose that it's rather cruel considering most of them are my friends, but oh well."
