A Narrow Escape
Run!” cried Aragorn. “We are outnumbered; make for the bridge!"
Halbarad followed in haste, hoping the three wargs would not dare pursue them.
The bridge was a makeshift affair, little more than two rotting planks, which threatened to give way and tumble the men into the raging waters.
“They follow!” Halbarad cried as both men reached the other shore.
Aragorn dislodged a rock and aimed it at the rickety timbers, hoping to weaken them.
The wargs followed. Unable to bear their weight, the planks splintered and snapped.
Aragorn and Halbarad made good their escape, leaving the wet wargs far behind.
