The Wink of an Eye


Denethor unveiled the Seeing Stone with eager hands. What would it now reveal of the Dark Lord's evil: distant armies riding, Orcs massing, or the Witch-king himself?

Instead, Denethor glimpsed the terrible lidless Eye of Barad-dr. He steeled himself and looked into its fell gaze.

The Eye winked at him.

Certain his mind was playing tricks, Denethor looked again.

The Eye winked back.

Shuddering, Denethor re-covered the Orb; then hastened from the Tower on trembling legs.

Sauron stretched his mouth in a lipless grin. It pleased him to trifle with Gondor's solemn Steward. He would drive him to madness yet!
