11. A Decision
The decision is made.
Although father cautions us to be careful and tells us it will not bring back that which was lost, nor restore our broken family, I can tell he would do the same in our place.
Arwen cries, for she does not wish us to leave. But home will never be the same again and there seems little point in staying. There is nothing for us here any more.
The decision is made and we will ride out tomorrow. We will not rest until we kill all orcs so no others will suffer what our mother did.
