30. Many ways lead to Henneth Annûn... (Rangers of Ithilien)
"Many ways lead to Henneth Annûn..."
"Hurry, this way!"
"STOP! WAIT! Ael, we're cut off, there's an ambush company coming that way."
"Sadron, how did you—"
"They're hooded by that stand of trees near the second pool."
"All right. We—"
"Ael! Captain, there's a little path other side o' the falls. Leads to a cave."
"Swim! They'll be on us any second! SWIM, DAMN IT!"
"Bad footing, careful."
"Thirty-two uruks, eighteen yards back!"
"Come on, everyone in!"
"Quiet, be quiet!"
Waiting in an anxious hush, hunted by Mordor, six exhausted Rangers first took refuge in Henneth Annûn.
