12. drabble: Before The Fall

“He stood upon the bridge alone
and Fire and Shadow both defied;â€쳌

Frodo faltered. Sorrow welled up like shadow and flame. Pain, searing hot tried to deny him even the comfort of offering these words – meager, but all he had been able to give.

The strength to go on came like the clasp of a hand on his shoulder. Narya, whose strongest power had always been to kindle the fire in the heart, blazed. For the briefest of moments, the pain had no power...

“his staff was broken on the stone,â€쳌 he managed at last.
“in Khazad-dum his wisdom died.
