Elbereth Is Watching

“Elbereth watches over us tonight,” said Estarfin.

“We saw that before,” Parnard said, and pointed at the foreboding stone fortress.

“A Mannish place,” Danel told him.

“Did my hound go this way?” He looked around in the dewy field of flowers for any trace of the small white dog’s passing.

“I followed you, not the hound…” said Estarfin, staring at the keep’s walls where men patrolled. 

“We need to hunt food, not foes,” Parnard reminded them.
