Danger! Unknown people approaching from behind!
Reports have come of riders gaining fast. Théoden immediately halts the ride, and everyone takes up defensive positions. Merry wonders what will happen if there’s a fight, naturally.
Thankfully, after Éomer calls to them, the riders stop and salute in peace. One steps forward and identifies himself as Halbarad, a ranger of the north, looking for Aragorn. Oh! They’ve found him. Aragorn embraces him, and all is well.
But…why are they here?
-Halbarad: As mentioned, a ranger. He seems like a decent fellow.
Needless to say, these rangers have come a long, long way. It’s possible that they’ve been riding for several weeks just to get this far south of where they started. Whatever their mission, they’ve been on it for a while, and had no idea that they’d just run into Aragorn in the middle of some field. Heck, they didn’t even know they’d gotten into Rohan yet.
Of course, they’re very happy to hear that they’ve made it. Wouldn’t you, riding for so long?
Words My Computer Didn’t Like:
That’s all for now. I’ve got a lot to do. Moving, remember?
No one dies today.
