41. The Return of the King - Chapter 8

 

A council that includes; Gandalf, Aragorn, Eomer as Theoden has died from a broken body, Legolas, Gimli and myself. Convenes in the throne room of Minas Tirith. "Frodo has passed beyond my sight. The darkness is deepening" Gandalf informs us, "If Sauron had the Ring we would know it" I say, "It's only a matter of time" Gandalf tells me. "He has suffered a defeat, yes, but behind the walls of Mordor our enemy is regrouping" the wizard tells us, "Let him stay there. Let him rot! Why should we care?" Gimli asks as he sits on the Steward's throne, puffing on his pipe. "Because ten thousand Orcs now stand between Frodo and Mount Doom. I've sent him to his death" Gandalf says, "No. There;s still hope for Frodo. He needs time, and safe passage across the Plains of Gorgoroth" I tell everyone, "We can give him that" Aragorn adds in. "How?" Gimli asks, "Draw out Sauron's armies. Empty his lands. Then we gather our full strength and march on the Black Gate" Aragorn tells us his plan, to which I agree too. "We cannot achieve victory through strength of arms" Eomer says, "Not for ourselves, but we can give Frodo his chance if we keep Sauron's Eye fixed upon us" I tell him as I move slightly over to Aragorn, "Keep him blind to all else that moves" Aragorn says and meets me halfway. "A diversion" Legolas points out, "Certainty of death. Small chance of success. What are we waiting for?" Gimli asks. Gandalf stands in front of Aragorn and I, "Sauron will suspect a trap. He will not take the bait" Gandalf whispers, "Oh, I think he will" Aragorn tells him as he takes my hand in his. I smile at him as this could be out last moment together before we go into battle, I rest my forehead against his and close my eyes. "I'm sorry" we both apologize at the same time, which cause us both to giggle. I opened my eyes and pulled away from him, only for him to bring his lips to mine, I smiled into the kiss but quickly broke it off as the others are still here. "Lets get ready for battle" I tell them and they all leave with a nod of their heads.

Aragorn's P.O.V  

I walk into the citadel throne room and uncover the Palantir, I flinch when the eye blazes. I hover my hand over it for a moment, before grabbing it and holding it up in front of my face, so I can look into it. "Long have you hunted me. Long have I eluded you. No more" I tell the Eye, I hold up my sword to it, "Behold the sword of Elendil" I say. An image of Saruon in his armor appears, before being replaced with a depiction of Naevys, dead. I know its not real because I just saw her, but it looks so real. As Saruon laughs, I drop the Palantir, I look down just as the Evenstar falls from my neck and shatters upon the floor.

I lead the army from Minas Tirith, and Naevys by my side. Gandalf, Legolas, Gimli, and Eomer ride behind us. Pippin rides with Gandalf, and Merry rides with Eomer. We march forth from Minas Tirith to the Back Gates.
