The winged beast approached her. All of a sudden, two arrows appeared and struck the best in the head. The beast went stiff and met its death on the rocky terrain below. Elenya still held on. Her hands began to slip.
“Legolas!” she cried.
Legolas instantly went to the window. He took her arms in his hands and swiftly pulled her to safety. Once they were safely inside, Merry asked, “What happened?”
“I don’t know. In my dreams I saw a blue mist. Then someone appeared before me. He had a beautiful face and told me to follow him. He said he’d show me someplace beautiful. I did. We walked through a beautiful forest together. And then we came to a small pool in the middle. He jumped in and told me to follow. That is when I heard your voice.”
Legolas spoke, “It was the blue mist. Morgoth gave it to the people he tortured in his minds. But it is a nightmare. Once you jump into the pool, you are surrounded with flames of fire. It seems Agroth tried to take you away.”
“He’ll never stop. You must realize that Legolas,” she said.
“Well, we shall just-“
“Just what? Increase security. Lock me away so that I can never be free to go where I wish? No, that is not the life I want. I want to be free. I want to spend the rest of my days with you,” she said.
“What must be done?” Eldarion asked.
“I have a plan. I know you shall be object to it, Legolas. But it is the only way.”
“I will hear it,” he said.
Agroth was enraged once he had learned the winged beast was dead. He went instantly to his Palantir and spoke with Morgoth.
“Do not let it disappoint you, my young apprentice. She shall come to you. Of her own free will.”
“What do you mean?” he asked.
“There is a day coming when she shall go to you freely.”
“Are you certain of this?”
“How do you know?”
“Even the Valar could not take away my keen senses to see through the world. Wait my apprentice. Soon.”
“Are you mad? You wish to go to Angband!” Legolas said enraged.
“Just hear me out,” she said. “He’ll never stop trying to take me. I must go to him willingly. Once that happens, he shall be vulnerable. The only way to stop him is to kill him. If he is not slain, then he will free Morgoth from the eternal void, and Middle Earth will cease to exist. He can just as easily find me in my own world as well.”
“And you will slay him?” Legolas asked.
“If I have the strength. But I need you to help me. Rather I need Aragorn. I think we should launch a full scale invasion of Angband.”
“That could start a war,” Eldarion spoke.
“Possibly one of the biggest wars in the history of the world. But if that’s what it takes to kill Morgoth, then so be it. Either we fight to protect Middle Earth from the day of Doom or we fall into darkness. And if that day of Doom comes, I will be there to fight it.”
“And I with you,” Legolas said.
“So will I,” Elerrina added.
“And I,” Eldarion said.
“I’m with you too,” Merry said.
Merry punched his brother’s arm.
“But what about the danger? I just came here because I had to and because there was a feast,” Pippin objected.
“Stop thinking about your stomach, Pippin. If we don’t fight, there wont be any food left.”
“Oh then I’m with you definately. So what’s the plan?”
