Marta's 2008 Birthday Prezzies: 2. From the Grey Twilight - by Imhiriel

At first we laughed at his curse, judging it no more than impotent fury of one thwarted. What power the curse of a man - even be he prince of great Númenor - against Sauron's might?

Not until too late did we recognise the first workings of the curse when Isildur's wrath drove us to hide in secret places in the mountains.

Now we are called the Sleepless Dead, dread and terror of the land once ours, restless as prophesied.

We wait for the one foretold elsewhere to whom we would fulfil our oath, and thus at last earn our eternal peace.
