Sleep while you may, said Mablung But the Captain will return, if he is unhurt and when he comes we shall depart swiftly We shall be pursued as soon as news of our deed reaches the Enemy, and that will not be long Go quietly when you must said Sam No need to disturb my sleep I was walking all night

Chapter 16 The Window on the West

Because Aragorn is descended in direct lineage, father to father, from Isildur Elendils son himself And the sword that he bears was Elendils sword

On the great beast thundered, blundering in blind wrath through pool and thicket Arrows skipped and snapped harmlessly about the triple hide of his flanks Men of both sides fled before him, but many he overtook and crushed to the ground Soon he was lost to view, still trumpeting and stamping far away What became of him Sam never heard: whether he escaped to roam the wild for a time, until he perished far from his home or was trapped in some deep pit or whether he raged on until he plunged in the Great River and was swallowed up

Vividly before Frodos mind came the memory of Boromirs assault upon him, and for a moment he hesitated Faramirs eyes watching him grew harder Boromir was a valiant member of our Company said Frodo at length Yes, I was his friend, for my part

Why so, and not Boromir, prince of the City that the sons of Elendil founded?

Sam drew a deep breath An Oliphaunt it was But no one at home will ever believe me Well, if thats over, Ill have a bit of sleep

Their talk died down into a listening silence All seemed still and watchful Sam, crouched by the edge of the fern brake, peered out With his keen hobbit eyes he saw that many more Men were about He could see them stealing up the slopes, singly or in long files, keeping always to the shade of grove or thicket, or crawling, hardly visible in their brown and green raiment, through grass and brake All were hooded and masked, and had gauntlets on their hands, and were armed like Faramir and his companions Before long they had all passed and vanished The sun rose till it neared the South The shadows shrank I wonder where that dratted Gollum is? thought Sam, as he crawled back into deeper shade He stands a fair chance of being spitted for an Orc, or of being roasted by the Yellow Face But I fancy hell look after himself He lay down beside Frodo and began to doze

Frodos tone was proud, whatever he felt, and Sam approved of it but it did not appease Faramir So Were you a friend of Boromir?

To his astonishment and terror, and lasting delight, Sam saw a vast shape crash out of the trees and come careering down the slope Big as a house, much bigger than a house, it looked to him, a grey clad moving hill Fear and wonder, maybe, enlarged him in the hobbits eyes, but the Mymak of Harad was indeed a beast of vast bulk, and the like of him does not walk now in Middle earth his kin that live still in latter days are but memories of his girth and majesty On he came, straight towards the watchers, and then swerved aside in the nick of time, passing only a few yards away, rocking the ground beneath their feet: his great legs like trees, enormous sail like ears spread out, long snout upraised like a huge serpent about to strike his small red eyes raging His upturned hornlike tusks were bound with bands of gold and dripped with blood His trappings of scarlet and gold flapped about him in wild tatters The ruins of what seemed a very war tower lay upon his heaving back, smashed in his furious passage through the woods and high upon his neck still desperately clung a tiny figure the body of a mighty warrior, a giant among the Swertings

Frodos tone was proud, whatever he felt, and Sam approved of it but it did not appease Faramir So Were you a friend of Boromir?

Sam crept out from the fern, but no one paid any attention to him, and he placed himself at the end of the rows of men, where he could see and hear all that was going on He watched and listened intently, ready to dash to his masters aid if needed He could see Faramirs face, which was now unmasked: it was stern and commanding, and a keen wit lay behind his searching glance Doubt was in the grey eyes that gazed steadily at Frodo

It seemed to Sam that he had only dozed for a few minutes when he awoke to find that it was late afternoon and Faramir had come back He had brought many men with him indeed all the survivors of the foray were now gathered on the slope nearby, two or three hundred strong They sat in a wide semicircle, between the arms of which Faramir was seated on the ground, while Frodo stood before him It looked strangely like the trial of a prisoner

Ware cried Damrod to his companion May the Valar turn him aside Mymak

Sleep while you may, said Mablung But the Captain will return, if he is unhurt and when he comes we shall depart swiftly We shall be pursued as soon as news of our deed reaches the Enemy, and that will not be long Go quietly when you must said Sam No need to disturb my sleep I was walking all night

It was Sams first view of a battle of Men against Men, and he did not like it much He was glad that he could not see the dead face He wondered what the mans name was and where he came from and if he was really evil of heart, or what lies or threats had led him on the long march from his home and if he would not really rather have stayed there in peace all in a flash of thought which was quickly driven from his mind For just as Mablung stepped towards the fallen body, there was a new noise Great crying and shouting Amidst it Sam heard a shrill bellowing or trumpeting And then a great thudding and bumping like huge rams dinning on the ground

No, not because I choose, answered Frodo It does not belong to me It does not belong to any mortal, great or small though if any could claim it, it would be Aragorn son of Arathorn, whom I named, the leader of our Company from Moria to Rauros

On the great beast thundered, blundering in blind wrath through pool and thicket Arrows skipped and snapped harmlessly about the triple hide of his flanks Men of both sides fled before him, but many he overtook and crushed to the ground Soon he was lost to view, still trumpeting and stamping far away What became of him Sam never heard: whether he escaped to roam the wild for a time, until he perished far from his home or was trapped in some deep pit or whether he raged on until he plunged in the Great River and was swallowed up

As to the manner of his death, I had hoped that his friend and companion would tell me how it was But he was alive and strong when we parted And he lives still for all that I know Though surely there are many perils in the world Many indeed, said Faramir, and treachery not the least

Sam drew a deep breath An Oliphaunt it was But no one at home will ever believe me Well, if thats over, Ill have a bit of sleep

Because Aragorn is descended in direct lineage, father to father, from Isildur Elendils son himself And the sword that he bears was Elendils sword

Boromir was satisfied of that claim, said Frodo Indeed, if Boromir were here, he would answer all your questions And since he was already at Rauros many days back, and intended then to go straight to your city, if you return, you may soon learn the answers there My part in the Company was known to him, as to all the others for it was appointed to me by Elrond of Imladris himself before the whole Council On that errand I came into this country, but it is not mine to reveal to any outside the Company Yet those who claim to oppose the Enemy would do well not to hinder it
