Chapter 1 - Help

We are fighting not only for Gondor, but for all the free peoples of Middle-Earth. I couldn’t help, though, for the thoughts that ran through my head.
This is all futile. Why am I risking my life for such a hopeless cause?
Because we must at least attempt, I tell my self fiercely. I risk my life for the defense of my country, for what I believe in.
In the distance a horn calls; loud and clear. It is answered by many more. Do I dare let hope renew itself? Have the armies of Rohan come to our defense?
