My_Trip_to_Middle_Earth - chapter 13

Recap of chapter 12:

Right then a loud clang sounded from where Pippin was. I ran over and tried to grab it before it fell but it was way too late. It barely missedmy hands my a mere millimeters. The skeleton fell down the well shaft with a loud bang and clang.

Tension rose into the air. i closed my eyes wishing that this part wasn't happening. When the clanging stopped everybody sighed in relief. I felt that something wasn't right.

* Ah man, * I thought to myself as I heard a drum sound in the halls.

Chapter: 13

Everybody looked around in confusion. The hobbits, however, had a look of mortal fear in their eyes.

" why now," I said and ran to the only entrance in or out.

Borimir soon followed. He looked around trying to find where the noise was coming from when three arrows missed him by a hair.

" Orcs," Legolas stated turning and ran to me where there were axes on the walls.

Aragorn followed suit. A cave troll in the distance roared its mighty roar and there were the sounds of many more orcs heading our way.

Legolas, Aragorn, Borimir, and I all barred the only way in or out. The cave troll was already mad enough, I could tell.

" They have a cave troll," Borimir said in utter dismay.

" Ya think," I said sarcastically while I got out my bow and knocked an arrow in it.

Aragorn made a stern glare at me saying " Don't even start Megan."

Chapter: 13

Everybody looked around in confusion. The hobbits, however, had a look of mortal fear in their eyes.

" Crap," I said and ran to the only enterance in or out.

Borimir soon followed. He looked around trying to find where the noise was coming from when three arrows missed him by a hair.

" Orcs," Legolas stated turning and ran to me where there were axes on the walls.

Aragorn followed suit. A cave troll in the distance roared its mighty roar and there were the sounds of many more orcs heading our way.

Legolas, Aragorn, Borimir, and I all barred the only way in or out. The cave troll was already mad enough, I could tell.

" They have a cave troll," Borimir said in utter dismay.

" Ya think," I said sarcastically while I got out my bow and knocked an arrow in it.

Aragorn made a stern glare at me saying " Don't even start Megan."

I rolled my eyes and pulled back the bowstring made of a single strand of elven hair.

* Thank goodness for my archery lessons, * I thought to my self as orcs started to break down the door.

Soon a hole in the wall started to form. Legolas shot an arrow through the gouge in the door, killing the orc instantly. Me and Aragorn soon followed killing 2 more.

The door suddenly broke open and orcs piled in. With a burst of energy I took the first strike. That was when all heck broke loose.

* Dang how many more are there to go. When the heck is this going to end, * I thought as I stabbed orc after orc.

Suddenly the cave troll came in. But not nicely. It broke the stone wall with its bulk and swung its club at me. I duck and ran to the trolls left. It tried to strike more then once but missed every time.

* Why is it only going for me,* I thought as i ducked from each blow.

* Ah man, it knows I'm the fire mistress. It must sense my powers. * I thought in agony. * Why me? *

I didn't realize that an orc was coming up behind me until it was too late.

" Soooo.... the fire mistress has returned," the orc said," will make a nice servant for the master."

Me, way to shocked to act quickly, looked at it like, " What the heck are you talking about."

The orc raised his sword and started to bring it down onto my shoulder when a dagger blocked it. The dagger of my hero stabbed the orc and pulled me up with him.

" Stay here," he said and ducked as the troll smashed his chain onto the ground.

I stayed behind the pillar and caught my breath. Sorry to say that didn't last long for Legolas messed with the troll to where it snapped around my hiding place snapping me unconscious.

Legolas charged up the chain in anger and arrowed the troll in the head. It yelled in pain and tried to get Legolas off of him.

The troll noticed Frodo and went after it. It grabbed Frodo by the ankle and dragged him along the ground.

"Aragorn...Aragorn," Frodo yelled in desperation trying to grab something, anything to be exact.
************

After the battle I awoke and there was nothing but silence. I groaned and got up clutching my shoulder. The chain had left a deep gash on my sholder and it was very painful.

" That spear would have skewered a wild boar," Aragorn said in awe.

" I think there is more to this hobbit then meets the eye," Gandalf said with a touch of wisdom.

Frodo opened his shirt revealing a mithril coat.

" Mithril," Gimli said," and you are full of surprises.

" Ruby," Pippin said noticing me clutching my arm with a lot of red on my hand.

Legolas and Aragorn noticed and came over to me. They peeled away my tunic on my sholder to reveal the damage.

" Legolas get me some athleas out of my pack," Aragorn said," and some bandage."

Legolas nodded and got the athleas and bandages out. He handed them to Aragorn and sat next to me. Aragorn move my now longer hair out of the way and put some of the athleas on it. I grimsed in pain as the plant took effect.

" Legolas, get me some water and clean up the dry blood on her sholder while I get the bandages soaked in some athleas." Aragorn instructed.

Legolas nodded and came behind me. He poured some water on a cloth and gently cleaned off my sholder. As the dry blood came off more cuts were shown. I didn't even notice the pain anymore for as Legolas worked he used his other hand to gently massage my other sholder to ease my muscles.

When they both were done the fellowship heard more ocs outside.

" To the bridge of Kazadum," Gandalf said and ran out.

None of us noticed that more orcs were coming out of the cracks on the ground and from holes on the ceiling.

Soon we had nowhere to go. We were completely surrounded. Suddenly we heard the most terrible sound you could imagine in Middle Earth.

The orcs go t frightened and ran away like crazy. Gimli laughed as all of us turned to see the sound and red glow at the end of the hall.

" What is this new devilry," Borimir asked Gandalf.

Legolas' eyes got really wide in fright. I moved over to Legolas in fright and clung onto his arm. Aragorn looked at Gandlaf in utter agony, knowing what it was. Merry, Pippin, Frodo and Sam clung onto me with pure utter fright.

I trembled and Gandalf spoke," A Balrog, a demon of the ancient world. This foe is beyond any of you, RUN!!"

None of us needed any urging. We ran in pure terror and headed for the doorway. Borimir was first through and almost fell off a cliff as the stairs ended. Legolas saved him in time grabbing Borimir before he fell.

" Lead them on Aragorn," Gandalf said nodding towards the bridge.

We ran down the stairs and stopped, as there was a huge gap in the stairs. If you fell, you would fall into the dark abyss forever.

Legolas jumped across, I followed, Gandalf next, Borimir, Merry, and Pippin after, Gimli, and finally after the stairs nearly killing them Agagorn and Frodo.

Then we headed towards the bridge.

" Get to the bridge, fly," Gandalf yelled as we ran across.

" Don't look down...don't look down," I muttered to myself as I ran across. I reached the end and turned around seeing Gandalf stop in the middle.

" You cannot pass," he yelled at the balrog.

It snorted and stepped forward.

" Gandalf," Frodo yelled.

Gandalf blocked the blow and yelled with tons of power,"
YOU SHALL NOT PASS!!!" and forcefully slamming his staff on the ground.

The balrog snorted again and stepped a mistakful step. The bridge fell beneath him. Just as Gandalf turned around the whip of the balrog caught him around the ankle pulling him to the ledge.

Just as he was about to fall he uttered," fly you fools," and fell down the cavern.

" No," me and Frodo yelled running to the bridge again. I was caught by Aragorn and Legolas.

" Let me go," I yelled at tried to get away.

They literally had to drag me out. I was kicking and screaming and even crying. Aragorn let go of me and Legolas pulled me towards him. I just cried and cried into his tunic. Legolas tightened his hold on me as I cried. i could tell that he was silently crying himself.

" Legolas get them up," Aragorn said wiping his sword.

Legolas let go and went to pick up Merry and Pippin.

" Give them a moment for pities sake," Borimir said sadly.

" By nightfall these hills will be swarming with orcs. We must reach the woods of Lothlorien," Aragorn replied picking up Sam.

" Frodo," Aragorn called after Frodo.

Frodo turned and looked at Aragorn with tears streaming down his pale face.

Legolas got me up and kept me close to him for the rest of our trip to Lorien. But I had no idea that when I go t there I would be getting the surprise of my life.
