Chapter Five: Bravery

Rain called for Haldir, who was in the adjacent chamber. Unfortunately, he did not hear her.

“He must still be unconscious,” she said to herself, “I know something that will make him come to,” she began to sing
“Far longer than forever
I’ll hold you in my heart
It’s almost like you’re here with me
Although we’re far apart

Far longer than forever
As constant as a star
I close my eyes and I am where you are

Sure as the dawn brings the sunrise
We’ve an unshakable bond
Destined to last for a lifetime and beyond

Far longer than forever (Far longer than forever)
I swear that I’ll be true (I swear that I’ll be true)
I’ve made an everlasting vow
To find a way to you

Far longer than forever
Like no love every known
And with your love I’ll never be alone

Far longer than forever
Much stronger than forever
And with your love I’ll never be alone”

“You always were a good singer,” called Haldir.

Suddenly, the dungeon door opened, “My-lord is waiting for you,” said the horrid Uruk-hai taking her by the wrist.

“No! Let go of me! Haldir!” It was no use. Rain couldn’t escape the grasp of the beast. It tossed her on the floor in front of Saruman.

“It is time, she elf! Your father has not come!” he thundered, his voice echoing through the tower.

“Time? Time for what? What are you going to do to me?” she cried.

“Its time to make sure you NEVER become The Lady of Rivendell.”

Rain hardly understood, “But I am not even next in line to the throne! I am the youngest! I have my two brothers and two sisters before me! Have you forgotten?”

“All in good time.”

Rains eyes filled with fear as the orc grabbed her again. Then without warning, an arrow zipped past.


“We best continue to Rohan. Rainasthin is already in danger and I dare not put Artholien in the same peril,” Gandalf said, climbing upon Shadowfax, then Gimli, then Gimli was seated behind him. A they were riding, Legolas held on to Artholien tightly, as if he were afraid she would be taken right out of his arms.

“I will not let anything happen to you, Artholien,” vowed Legolas.

Artholien turned her head and gazed into his icy blue eyes, “I know,” she replied, barely above a whisper.

Gimli, not being able to hold back his amusement, “So you do like her.”

“You know what, Gimli,” Legolas smiled at Artholien, “for once you’re right.” They rode into the raising sun.
