17. The Forbidden Pool

Faramir wakes Frodo in the dead of night. Where his Master goes, Samwise follows, to a ledge overlooking Ithilien. Below, the white waters swirl darkly.

A creature hunts for food within the sacred pool, but this transgression may cost him his life.

As the moon sets over Gondor, archers stand ready, bows drawn, for they fear Henneth Annûn has been discovered at last.

Should the creature, Sméagol, be spared?

Here death is law.

To be slain or taken, the choice is yours.

There is but one chance…come to Frodo, Master. Come.

And so they part…until next time, farewell.
