The journey from Weathertop continues, and so does the pain. It even hurts when I do battle, which is never far away in these parts. So many half orcs around, hmmmm I am not completely sure what they are up to, but I am thinking that the treacherous Saruman may have something to do with it.
No sign yet from Rubyrae, which troubles me somewhat. I am loathe to cancel my quest and go searching for her, because I know that she is both hardy and proud. It would be a little bit embarrasing for her if I arrived mid battle shouting out “don’t worry, Daddy is here!”. I don’t think she would ever forgive me!
Anyway, I will rest my head here tonight, I have walked far enough. Each step is quite painful, but not as demoralising as feeling that Weathertop continues to look as close as it did the day before!
