6. The End Has Come
Aragorn fights beside me, as always; but this time there will be no sudden respite. We knew that here we would meet our end, but it was to be in hope. Now Frodo has failed and our futile hope has been shattered. Sauron will regain the Ring, and his victory will be complete. The world will end in darkness. I will live only to see my friends fall.
Written in answer to a request for an Aragorn/Legolas friendship drabble in the 2004 October Birthday Card Forum.
