"Right then , no time to argue!" Marl agreed hastily as they got on their way.

"Of course," Esmerelda responded to Arnwen, snatching up his bags in a hurry and trotting at a hurried pace along side the healer.

Marl watched their back as they travled, keeping a ken eye on the shadows. All that night he had got the feeling they were being watched. The hours passed slowly but once the exit to the mines appeared relief fell on everyone, but only for a brief second. They were not twelve paces away from the door when orcs rushed at them from the side!

Marl quickly drew his blade and engaged the brutes in combat, slicing through the first two with skill. "Run!" He yelled to the others. "I'll hold them off until you are safely into Lorien's woods!"

"Marl, no!" Esmerelda screamed. She started to take a step towards him but paused, looking back to Brinley. She would do Marl little good in a fight... she knew that.

"There is no other way!" Marl yelled back, yet a grin covered his face. "Come on you filthy beasts!" He taunted the orcs and cut down two more before being forced to block several incoming attacks as more and more orcs shuffled through the narrow passageway.

Arnwen faltered in his step and drew his sword while holding Brinley on his shoulder. He cut down several orcs that got in his way as he reached the door and threw his weight against it. It began to slowly open and sunlight poured into the Mines. Arnwen ran a few steps out and then gently lay Brinley against a boulder, "Stay safe, Esmerelda, I will be back," he turned back to the Mines and ran inside, swords out and ready to taste the blood of an orc.

When Arnwen ran back in Marl was cutting down a trio of orcs when a blade caught his arm. The old man grunted and blood soaked his garment. The wound was deep.

Seeing Arnwen rush to the battle an orc in the rear raised a bow and shot through the crowd from a position the elf would not see it coming. Marl caught the glint of a dark steel tip and with a keen military eye he knew it's target was the elf. He pushed through the pain in his arm, decapitating an orc and ducking under another swing. He stood up tall just in time and the arrow meant for Arnwen struck him in the right shoulder just above the collar bone.

"Get out of here!" He yelled to Arnwen. "You are the only one who can save the Lad and he has little time! I'll hold them off as long as I can!" Marl hollered through gritted teeth. He skewered another orc but not a moment later took another blow to his shin as he deflected an orc blade away from his abdomen.

Arnwen knew what he had to do but he wanted to save Marl as well. Saving people was the oath he took as a healer, "I will send help! Stay with me, Marl!" he shouted as he turned and rentered Lorien. He ran past Brinley and Esmerelda and stood at the tree line. He shouted something in elvish up at the branches and suddenly elves dropped out of nowhere and ran towards the doors of the Mines.

Arnwen returned to Brinley and picked him up, heaving him onto his shoulder, he made his way through the trees, towards the river and the shallow part where the horses were able to cross. He was met there by an elf and Arnwen's horse. Brinley was loaded onto the stallion's back and then led through the rushing, yet shallow waters. The hut wasn't far now.

As Marl faded out of sight Esmerelda saw Arnwen come running back. She was about toninquire when Arnwen caled for the other elves and they departed towards the mine. They then turned to lead onwards and Esmerelda was glad to see Arnwen's horse and familiar surroundings. A short moment later she could see Arnwen's hut in the distance.

Back in the mines, as the elves arrived Marl was struggling against the last of orcs. The elves made short work of the beasts but as they turned to marl and saw the blade lodged in his chest, the arrow in the side of his neck, and the other cuts and gashes that still released life-giving blood, they knew the old man would not last long. With weary eyes, yet a smile on his face, he said. "Give these to Micha..." he held out his pack. It had all his maps and charts that he had been working for the past eight years. His greatest works and documented information about each map location. It was a literary work of cartography fit for the finest libraries in middle earth. "Tell him..." Marl struggled to speak as the elves took the pack. "Only the mines are left unfinished..." with that he let out a heavy sigh, closed his eyes, and his spirit slipped from his body towards the next leg of it's journey.

Arnwen took Brinley inside the hut with the help of some elvish scouts. They lay the boy on the bed as Arnwen began preparations. The potion smelled of cinnamon as Arnwen directed the elves to find Micha and Sygnet. The healer coaxed the liquid down Brinley's throat and he sat back, waiting.

The elves, who had taken a liking to the old man, carried him from the Mines. Others called for horses to help move him to Caras Galadhon's burial chambers. The dead were not often buried but this place served as a memorial to all deceased elves. They would call for Micha once he had seen to his son. He didn't need the added burden just yet.

Esmerelda stood by anxiously, watching and waiting, not sure what to expect. She glanced at Brinley, then at Arnwen. "How do we know if it is working?" She asked, then looked to Brinley. "Do you feel any... different?"

Arnwen looked at the book with the recipe, "It doesn't say. Brinley are you okay?"

The young boy was still sweating and his eyes were closed as if he were still in pain but he was no longer groaning with pain.

At that moment, Sygnet burst through the door with Micha. Arnwen gave them a quick update and Brinley opened his eyes to look at his parents. His breath was even.

"Brinley, I am going to check your legs," Arnwen told him and moved in to check for as much mobility. After a few minutes, he smiled, "Brinley, they feel much better. If not a little resistance but hopefully that will go away. Can you stand for me?" he asked.

Brinley nodded and sat up slowly. Swinging his legs over the side of the bed, he gradually placed weight on them and stood up, Arnwen hovering close by, reading to catch him if he fell. The boy didn't and the elven healer smiled wider as tears filled Sygnet's eyes. Brinley looked at Esmerelda and smiled. With shaky steps, he made his way over to her and enveloped her in a tight hug. While the stiffness was mostly gone, a limp was only slightly evident in his footfalls. It was a miraculous recovery.

Micha came in close behind Sygnet and looked to Arnwen with a silent inquiry as to the boy's condition.

Esmerelda watched in silence as she felt her throat grow tight with suspense. Them Brinley walked and came to envelope her in his arms and her anxiety seemed to melt. She wanted to melt too, right into Brinley's arms. She didn't, however, she stood firm afraid to put too much weight on him in his condition. She slid her arms under his and wrapped them around his back and gently lay her forehead on his shoulder.

"Brinley..." she whispered and fell silent at a loss for words.

Brinley fought back tears as he held her, "We did it..." he whispered. After a few more moments, he looked around. An elven scout was waiting at the door. Elves bore so little emotion, Brin almost missed the subtle signs etching the scout's body language. He got Sygnet's attention and whispered in her ear.

Her face fell and this time tears of sorrow filled her eyes as she looked at Micha. "It's Marl..." was all she could say. Brinley's knees suddenly felt weak again and he sat down on his bed. He hardly knew the man but he had risked his life to save Arnwen and Esmerelda and Brinley from those orcs.

Esmerelda nodded softly against Brinley's shoulder. She looked up at the slight sound when the elven guard entered. Worry filled her eyes and she glanced to Micha who gave an almost questioning look. He either denied that Marl was dead or didn't fully understand. "Where is he?" Micha asked. "I should go to him."

Sygnet looked at the elf scout who nodded and led the way, "Brin, my beautiful boy, we will be right back," his mother promised but he took a few shaky steps toward the door. Everyone made a move towards him, "No! Stay!" she commanded, her voice wavered as she held back tears.

Arnwen was half holding him back, half keeping him upright, "No!" his voice cracked, "I have to go! He saved my life!" he begged. Sygnet shook her head finally and left the small hut as Arnwen slowly pushed Brinley onto the bed. Once the boy was seated and still, Arnwen began to make a pot of tea.

Esmerelda wavered between the two paring groups but after a moment she stood firm with Brinley. She clasped his hand in hers as a few tears rolled down her cheeks. She watched Sygnet and Micha walk out the door then turned back to Brinley.

Once Micha and Sygnet were out Micha looked to Sygnet. "Are you sure you don't want to stay with Brinley?"

Brinley smiled and held her hand tightly. While no tears fell down his cheeks, he felt the somber feeling of weight press down on his shoulders and the surrounding area.

Sygnet nodded, "My place is with you, my love," she smiled weakly, taking his hand in hers and gripping it tightly as the young elf led them to the Burial Chambers.

When Micha and Sygnet arrived Micha looked down on the lifeless body of the old man and though his face had been anything but cheery it fell all the more when he saw Marl was completely gone. He closed his eyes a deep sigh left his lips as he stepped closer to the man's body. A long stretch of several minutes passed in silence till finally he spoke. "Well..." his voice was strained and thick with sorrow. "He always wanted to go down fighting."

"Sir," one of the elves approached with Marl's pack and handed it to Micha. "He asked we give you these. He said only Moria was left to be charted."

Micha drew his gaze to the elf, then the blood stained back. Corners of maps and papers protruded out the opening of the stuffed and disorganized bag. Slowly Micha took the bag and held it gazing at it as if his mind was lost in the stories that were held inside it of notes and maps and writings of the lands Marl had scouted.


Back at Arnwen's house Esmerelda sat anxiously. So much uncertainty lay in her future. Would Brinley recover fully? Would he go away again? If so when? She dared not ask any of these questions, though. Too much sorrow had been had for the day and she felt she could shoulder no more. She looked at Brinley, taking solace in the fact that he was still with them.

Sygnet said nothing as she gaze upon the body of the man she had come to know quite well in the last 8 years. With the maps his memory was preserved in the form of ine on parchment paper. The intricate lines were stunning. With such careful detail.

Arnwen knew Brinley's fate and his future. He could tell the boy now but between the death of Marl and suddenly gaining his ability to walk almost normally, he decided it would be best to tell him and his parents in the morning. The elf quietly began to cook a small meal for the 3 of them.

Brinley sat quietly beside Esmerelda. She knew Marl better than him. Almost like a father, he would guess. The old innkeeper looked after her before they came to Lorien. It was a sad day indeed.
