Confessions of a Dangerous Mind


13. Chapter Thirteen

"Wow," Marinalite said. "I wonder who decorated Moria. It sure is nice and welcoming."

"Yeah, you're right," Arwen said.

"Moria is so nice and cozy," Marinalite said. "Do you want to rent a room here with me?"

"Oh, okay," Arwen said. "I wonder who lives here."

"I don't know," Marinalite said. "I think that someone told me that a bunch of dwarves built Moria, but I still don't know who lives here."

"Oh, okay," Arwen said.

"We should go on a honey-moon here," Legolas said.

"Oh, okay," Marinalite said. "It is very nice and cozy here. We should live here."

"Oh, okay," Legolas said.

"Oh, no!" Boromir said. "Look at that giant octopus-like-creature! It's trying to eat the hobbits!"

"Help me!" Frodo said.

"Yes, someone help us!" Aragorn said. "I don't know what to do! This octopus-like-creature has weapons! Help!"

"I know," Arwen said. "Marinalite can save us! She can fight better than anyone!"

"I don't need to fight," Marinalite said. "I'll catch the octopus-like- creature on fire!" Marinalite stared at the octopus-like-creature, and it caught on fire. Then, it died.

"Marinalite," Legolas said. "You're so brave. I wish that I was like you."

"You will be, someday," Marinalite said.

"Oh, okay," Legolas said.


Several days later . . .

"Oh, no," Boromir said. "The cave troll is going to get us!"

"Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!" Aragorn said. "The cave troll has a giant club, and is going to kill us!"

"What are we going to do?" Frodo said.

"I know," Legolas said. "Marinalite can help us!"

"Oh, okay," Everyone said. "Marinalite, help!"

"Oh, okay, I'll help you," Marinalite said. The cave troll came into the room, and hit everyone except Marinalite with its club. They all were on the verge of dying, but Marinalite saved the day.

"Ahhhhhhhhhh," Everyone said. "That really hurt."

"Oh, okay," Marinalite said. "I'll carry you all out of here." Marinalite carried everyone out of Moria, beat the Balrog, and got everyone to safety.
