The Hobbit, Drabbled

Hobbit, Drabbled, The

17. The Clouds Burst

Trumpets ring, banners appear, demands made. The Arkenstone is a bargaining-piece – battle lines drawn. Only one resists the greed – ‘Long will I tarry, ere I begin this war for gold,’ speaks the Elvenking.

Dread falls; black clouds gather. A thunderclap; wind roars down from the hills. Vast armies of orcs and wolves fall upon elves, men, and dwarves – fighting together now, all differences forgotten.

Cold flame flickers from sword and spear; burning with immortal hate. Elves, dwarves, men fall beneath the crushing multitude, hope vanquished. Defeat is certain, until a glad cry is raised.

The eagles! The eagles are coming!
