Cahpter Two

Legolas was running over a hill with delight in his eyes. He turned around and smiled.
"Hurry!" he said, "You really don't run like an elf."
He turned and dashed off over a hill.
"Come on!" he said again, "We have only climbed the very heights of this hill and your already tred! Fine elf you are!" He turned and dashed off.
Up the hill came a girl elf panting.
"Hold....stop......hold it you two faced, too tall, too fast, too stupid, too skinny, too orcish, half dwarvish, part elvish ring bearer!" said Yaviel.
Legolas laughed and said, "Listening to you I'd think you were my distant cousin!"
"Because you don't know me!" with this he laughed and dashed off.
"Oh, poo!" she replied and she went on walking down the hill.
Yaviel was running behind him as fast as she could could go.

They ran down the hill and they saw Bree.
"We're not going to to stop here daughter of Haldir." said Legolas
"Why not?" She asked.
"In case of spies." he replied.

Legolas and Yaviel quarreled like two good freinds for an hour or so and then decided to rest where they were so they sat down and started talking around a fire.
"My father was so proud of me when I told him that I would take the rings to middle-earth to protect them." said Legolas.
"You love your father Legolas don't you?" said Yaviel.
"Very much." Said Legolas. He looked at Yaviel and she was eating an apple with a face that showed she was hiding something.
"What are you hiding?" said Legolas.
Yaviel gave an answer quick and sharp. "Nothing! Nothing!" with this she rose and walked a few paces.
"What is it?" asked Legolas.
"Nothing I said."
Legolas thought for a moment and went back to eating.

Chapter I of Book Two: The War of the Seven Rings

As Eruaphadion rode with Eraunna in front of him, he was forced to let his horse have his head as he road through the forest with branches swinging and slashing at his helmeted head and face. Eruanna in front of him, struggled to stay on the horse and duck as the branches swung at her head; she was thankful for Eruaphadion in back of her, which helped to block swinging branches, but did not catch all of them. Her eyes were blurred with hot, salty tears which over flowed and streamed down her cheeks, streaking through the dirt and grime on her face from battle.
Inside, she was tormented at having to leave her friend Legolas, whom she loved dearly as a brother. "I had to," She told herself sorrowfully as she wiped her sleeve on her face to rid the tears in her hot, flushed face, "I cannot carry the rings with him along. I had to go! May he be safe....I hope I see him again. I will see him again! I will! But first....to Gondor! Just remember that Eraunna! TO GONDOR!" She repeated to herself, with fierce Hobbit determination, as she ducked a branch and urged the horse on faster.
The horse ran and ran further, and further into the green, whispery forest. Eruanna and Eurauphadion had been riding for 4 hours on the speeding horse. "EURAUPHADION!" she yelled to him above the din of the horses feet, "LET'S STOP! There's a stream up ahead!"
"Alright." He yelled back to the young hobbit girl. He admired her greatly, especially her courage and determination, but wondered at her knowledge of things since she had admitted she had never left the Shire. As they stopped there sweating, panting horse, Eurauphadion asked the girl as she bent and washed her face and hands in the cool stream,
"How did you know this was here? You even admitted to me that you had never left your home, the Shire. How did you know this stream would be here! I saw you purposely head this way, I'm sure when I was on the horse."
Euranna smiled and stopped washing for a moment.
"That's true," she replied quietly, "I did turn the horse, and I did know this would be here." Finished washing, she picked up her armor and while buckling her sword to her slim waist as she walked to the now refreshed horse she replied,

"Because I studied and memorized the maps of my father for years and also studied them right before we left....." She then slung her armor onto the horse and turned to Eurauphadion and said smartly but with a smile, "Just like you should have done."

Eruaphadion turned to her back with equal smartness and replied,
"I would have if I known that I was to lead a small hopeless hobbit-"

Eruanna swiftly pulled out her sword and faced him with hot anger,
"SMALL, HOPELESS, hobbit is it? Pull out your sword elf-human, or you hopeless lost human-elf, and we'll see who is so hopeless."

Eruaphadion drew his long sword, "If you insist."

Eruanna, smiled and with two deft swings he and his sword were knocked to the ground with a hobbit leaning over him and sword at his throat.

"Don't worry. I'll remind you to study the map..." and then she jumped onto the horse and as she put away the sword she added, "oh yes. And don't forget some fencing lessons as well."

Eruaphadion, smiled and got up and then leaped behind the hobbit. "Don't worry my young Friend, I won't doubt or test your strength with the sword again...just your height." Eruanna laughed as she urged the horse forward and they sped off again, happy yet sad as she moved towards their doom.

Chapter IX

Legolas was lying in bed thinking who to send. Yaviel? No, as much as he would like to get her away from him no. He knew that she could not withstand the hosts and hosts and hosts of orcs which are near Greenwood. Eruaphadion! Perfect! He was strong! But then again, he was half human, and he would not send a human with rings of power. But he had carried the other four this far, no. Legolas could not risk the future of middle-earth. Eruanna he would not consider. She was too small. She was too weak. She may have been trained by Pippin but Pippin wasn't the best either. And Legolas would not ask her to throw her life away.

He woke up the next morning to Yaviel's face.
"Get up! Wargs!" She said. He jumped up and the other two were standing side by side. Eruaphadion with a broadsword in his right hand

and he now had the cloak he was wearing off of him and was wearing mail and a helm upon his head. Yaviel and Legolas put arrows on their strings and drew it back to their ears.
"No!" cried Legolas. "This will only get us killed! We need to get the rings out now or it will never be done!"
"Who then?" said Yaviel.
"Me." said Legolas.
"What!" called Yaviel.
"Eruaphadion is part human and I will never send a human with rings of power!" said Legolas.
"He's right!" said Eruaphadion.
"And your a girl." said Legolas
"What!" said Yaviel, "Then Eruanna! Not you! Your too important to be lost!"
"No!" said Legolas.
"Yes! It's the only way!" said Eruanna.
"I won't let you throw your life away!" said Legolas.
"It's my life," said Eruanna. "and if I choose to give it for middle-earth, so be it. And it's not for you to decide! All we can do is decide what to do with the time given us."
"But you are not chosen!" said Legolas.
"Eruaphadion will accompany me. Eruaphadion, put me on the horse and ride behind me." she said.
"No!" called Legolas with tears in his eyes. He tried to catch her but was held back by Yaviel. "I won't let you kill yourself!"
She was on the horse and she rode off with Eruaphadion. Legolas watched her until she was out of sight. He then turned with Yaviel and they started taking down wargs one by one. After five minutes they had fifty seven on the ground. The wargs stopped short turned and retreated.

Legolas turned and sat down with Yaviel.

"Why," said Legolas, "did you hold me back?"

"For the sake of yourself." she replied.

"What?" said Legolas.

"If I had let you go you would have suffered the fate of Frodo Baggins." said Yaviel.

"But you are always teasing me and pushing me around." said Legolas

"I at least know that if you die," she continued, "all elves would die."

"Are you refering to the fact that I am King?" asked Legolas.

"Yes," replied the elven-maiden. "Come on grumpy Let's move."

So they rose and started on a journey which they did not know would be the most extraordinary and magnificent next to the War of the Ring.

Chapter VIII

They were running on the road as fast as their elven (Not to mention hobbit) feet could. Though, as I have said they were running as fast as they could, the wargs caught up. Of course they were now shorter than they use to be. Legolas shot two more arrows, but the more he killed, the more they kept coming. Legolas knew their was only one more thing to do, he shot a rider and jumped onto the warg. Before he could grab up Yaviel and Eruanna, he felt someone hit him over the head and he went roling onto the floor.

A goblin rose a spear but was stabbed from behind. He looked up and saw the southron throw off the mask and rode to Legolas and at the same time he was killing Wargs and Goblins.

"Jump on!" said the rider obviously a man of Gondor. Legolas grabbed Eruanna and put her onto the horse. The horse turned and rode off with Yaviel and Legolas running behind.

They came to a river. It was the Brandywine. Eruanna hopped off the horse with Legolas' help and watered the horse as if nothing in the world had happened. The man came and sat down with the elves. When they had regained their strength they began to talk.

"My name is Eruaphadion," said the man.

"An elven name and a human face?" said Yaviel.

"Yes," said Eruaphadion, "I'm half elf."

"Is something wrong?" asked Yaviel.

"No," said Eruaphadion, "Worried." With this he pulled out a map. "In the shire wargs, orcs, and goblins, are closing in. In Greenwood Southrons are closing in. In Gondor Orcs of the mountains are marching to Osgiliath. In Rohan trolls and Southrons have captured Orthanc. And Lorien and The Misty Montains have sent dwarfs and elves to ally with Greenwood. There is little chance of surviving this offensive."

"This is worse than the War of the Ring and the Battle of Five Armies." said Yaviel.

"Much worse. We will need all," said Legolas.

"All!" said Eruaphadion, "You speak as if you could leave and bring them all together!"

"And I can," said Legolas rising. He looked tall and proud as a king who has returned. He reached out his right hand. The sun suddely came behind his hand and his clothing turned like a white robe. On his hand their were three rings.

Eruaphadion rose and thrust out his right hand. The same happened and on his hand were four more rings.

"Behold!" said Yaviel. "The elven and dwarfish rings!"

"So," said Legolas, "We have all of them."

"Yes. And they must be distributed to stop this catastrophe or all will collapse." said Eruaphadion.

"How! I am the heir to the thrown of Greenwood and if I go there I can unite the three armies, and drive the Southrons back to Mordor and than the armies of the free people of Middle-earth can fight and destroy the power of Evil!"

"It is possible," said Eruaphadion, "And you could deliver the four dwarvish rings to the dwarves."

"But who will deliver the rings to the elves? He cannot bear four rings! He will be chased endlessly and definently fail!" said Yaviel.

"Another must travel to Gondor and wait for the elves." said Eruaphadion.

"Let's sleep and decide in the morning," said Legolas.

"Very well." said Yaviel.

They called Eruanna and they slept.

Chapter VII continued

Legolas turns and they start walking down the road.
Legolas started a song. "The road goes ever on and on down from the door where it began, I'll follow if I can. Yes, I must follow if I can."

They came to a bridge. Legolas turned to the side and saw something strange. It looked like a horse, wait no it was a tree, no, it had a head of a horse, what was that thing? He put an arrow on the string and drew it back to his ear.
"What is it you old grump?" said the elven maiden.
Legolas was aout to answer when out of the bushes came a black horse and a southron riding on it. He stopped for a second, turned to the forest, drew a sword, and called, "Charge!" With this he came forward. Behind him came, to Eruanna's eyes, thousands of Wargs and goblins. Realy there were fifty.

Legolas let the arrow fly. It struck a warg's leg. The warg triped and tripped three more with his fall. Yaviel put an arrow on string and after four arrows four came down. Eruanna drew a sword and ran at them. She stopped and a warg was running towards her. She jumped to the side and killed the goblin and sprang onto the warg and stabbed the head. As it fell she slid off the mouth onto the floor. She turned and did the same with the next three. On the fourth one, she did the same up to the part of sliding off. Her sword was stuck in the thick scull. She tried to pull it out but was flung forward a few feet.

When she looked up she was surrounded by wargs. She looked for the sword but it was out of Grasp. A warg rider started to aproach. She fell to the floor and suddenly the warg was shot by one of Yaviel's arrows.
"Run!" Yaviel called to her. Eruanna ran and came to the bridge.
"We're on the border," called Legolas, "of hobbit territory and orc and goblin territory.
"Let's kill 'em!" said Eruanna.

"No! Run!" said Legolas.

They started running and they came to a forest.
