Battle upon the Quays

The last thoughts of the Captain of the Havens of Umbar.

MEFAwards 2008: Nominee Races: Men: General Drabbles


~~~

Crackling flames cover our shouts of triumph: the young heir to Dol Amroth only lightly guarded!

Eager to secure this prize, we press the attack, force the Swan-knights into the warren of the port-district.

The prince laughs at the challenge, apparently unperturbed.

Soon the reason becomes obvious: Far from getting lost, the Gondorians turn the flame-illuminated maze to their advantage, exploit every nook and cranny.

Inconceivable!

I alone make it back to the burning quays.

Somehow, I am not surprised when, materialising out of the billowing smoke, a sword points at me, held I dont doubt by the famed Thorongil.

A/N:
- Title is taken from the corresponding passage in RotK, Appendix A I (iv).

17.11.06 B-drabble for Roh_wyn, who wanted to read something featuring corsairs, preferably with Imrahil and/or Aragorn as Thorongil.
