Let Them Come

Chapter 1: Let Them Come

by NancyBrooke

‘Ten Thousand’ he says; and I see Rohirrim beset by three, no, five orcs each. ‘So many?’

‘… to destroy the world of men’.

Destroyed … lost. Lost … like something misplaced, uncared for and unobserved … lost. I have lost … but my eyes had become enshrouded and I did not see … I lost him.

My eyes are open now, and what they see is all I have left to love encircled within the Hornburg.

I refuse to lose a one of them. This man is king of nothing and no one; he cannot understand all I will not lose.

‘Let them come.’
