I woke early – the shoulder pain was throbbing particularly badly – hmmm not quite sure why the knife wound is so bad, as I have been stabbed many times. Maybe there was a bit of an infection caused by the food on the knife.
Anyway, Kinthorin was still sound asleep, so I sat and pondered for a while, and watched the sun cast its bright rays down on the ruins of the lone lands. I eventually grew impatient, and gave him a good shaking – its amazing how hard it is to shake a dwarf out of his slumber!
I took the opportunity to help Kinthorin with a few tasks. In the nearby orc infested ruins, we came upon a particularly nasty looking creature called Blugasht. Kinthorin threw the final fatal blow, but kindly allowed me to keep the ruby shard that he was carrying. To make things even better, we collected a second shard from a spider across the road at Amon Ros.
All in all, a very satisfying days work, even though (as per Frodo’s journey) we didn’t travel too far.
