Drabbles for Birthdays 2012
10. Meet us in Bree
"There's strange things happening in the Chetwood these last few days," the villager said. "Shapes like Men, but glowing... Most unnatural." He shook his head.
"Probably something from the Downs," another muttered, shivering. "Best steer clear until they're gone."
In a dark corner of the Common Room, two Rangers sat.
"Wights?" Aragorn whispered with a grin.
"Elves," Halbarad replied.
"At least we know where they are now," Aragorn said. "But wait... days? They were supposed to meet us yesterday."
"Well, I'm not going out into the rain tonight," Halbarad replied. "There's a warm, dry room upstairs. Tomorrow is soon enough."
