"Don't push yourself too hard," Micah told her. "That was a great improvement from last time. Keep improving at this rate and you will gain your focus."

He rolled out the map and looked. "By my estimates we should reach needlehole mid day tomorrow."

Needlehole was the first hobbit town on the boarder between Ered Luin and the Shire. The Hobbits there were more use to travelers and strangers than some other hobbits way down in the delving.

"Tomorrow...", Elitariel repeated. She looked up at the sky and noticed the sun was going to set soon. They were going to have to camp out again. Her heart sank just a little bit at that realization, being very spoiled the previous night by a warm, comfortable bed. But this was something she was going to have to get used to as a traveler.

"Micah..", she began hesitantly, not knowing exactly how to word the question without being too intrusive. "...your parents..they were killed by, you said, by orcs and goblins?" Her eyes moved to the ground below her feet. "Was there any purpose in it? Any motive? Or they just killed to....kill?" Elitariel knew this must be a sensitive topic, so she tried to tread it lightly.

Micah sighed lightly and looked at the ground himself. Shaking his head he answered. "If there was a reason I never found it. Goblins and orcs didn't even live in that area." He shook his head again. "The band was just passing theough. They were probably just hungry and tired. They saw the village and attacked with no warning, no explination."

The sun was sinking low and they came to a canyon where there was a slender and deep valley just about ten foot long and six foot wide. The edges went up for nearly twenty feet and the top was lines with trees. It was well sheltered from the wind.

"Orcs don't always need a reason, I guess," Micah continued as he set his things down inside the natural shelter. "And if they had one they had no need to tell it."

Elitariel examined the canyon and thought it good shelter for the night. While listening, she set her supplies on the ground and began unrolling her bed. Meldiron trotted over and wanted to help her, thus, he began pulling at the heavy bag and it slowly dragged closer to her. Either that, or he just wanted food.

The elf shook her head at Micah's explanation, puzzled. "There had to be a reason...You don't hear too often of orcs and goblins randomly attacking a lone village...In fact, you don't hear much of them at all." She flattened out the sleeping roll, still thinking to herself. It was odd.

She took the bag from Meldiron and pulled out a piece of dried meat. He greedily swiped and happily pranced away in a corner of the small cavern. Elitariel squinted her eyes, thinking deep. "Do you suppose....? No, no that can't be..." She shook her head, believing her theory could not be true.

Micah got his things out as well as Elitariel spoke and pondered. He shrugged at her statement. It was true that you didn't often hear much of the brutes nor sid they usually attack with no reason... But no reason had ever been offered.

Elitariel started to offer an explination but then stopped. Micah looked up at her. "What is it?" He asked. He had always wanted to know, "Why?" If Elitariel did have any kind of special insight to things maybe her ideas were worth more than just a mere idea.

Elitariel had finish setting her sleeping roll up, and layed down on her back, arms underneath her wondering head. Meldiron finished the piece of dried meat and came over to her, batting at her golden waves of hair on the ground.

"It's just....I don't know.." She looked over to the rock wall of the cavern, then back to Micah. "The most evil of all was defeated ages ago. Morgoth, I believe his name was. All evil dissipated along with him when his reigned ended. What if-" she suddenly stopped at her oncoming thought, shaking her head already in disbelief. "What if evil is coming back to Middle Earth? Not just orcs and goblins, but true, genuine darkness. What if history is repeating itself?"

Micah suddered inside at the thought. He knew well the tales of Morgoth and his evil reign. To think something like that may be coming to middle earth was not a pleasent thing.

"I suppose it is possible," Micah admited, laying his own bedroll out and then moving on to start a fire in the center of the deep ravine they camped in. There were three dead trees at the end of the ravine that supplies ample dry wood for the fire.

"I would not desire to live through such an event... But if such an event is to come upon us, perhaps your special talents are for just such a time as that. Perhaps you play a roll in defeating this coming evil and your dreams are a warning of it."

Elitariel closed her eyes as she listened to Micah. She didn't even connect her theory with the dreams she was having. It was quite strange that it almost fit together like a missing puzzle piece. "I mean, maybe it's just a huge coincidence..." She tried to reason with herself, "Morgoth was defeated. Maybe those orcs and goblins were just in the right place at the right time and didn't get eliminated along with their master."

The elf heard the crackles of the starting fire and breathed in the smoky scent. Opening her eyes, she gazed out from their safe cavern. The sky was unbelievably clear tonight. All the stars glistened among the black sky, almost giving her hope that her thoughts were not true.

"I am afraid to fall asleep tonight, Micah. It seems I cannot escape these frightening dreams." She rolled onto her side to face him, locks of hair falling in her face.

Micah finished with the fire and left a comfortable blaze burning amidsts the sticks and wood. He got up and walked over to where Elitariel was laying down and took a seat beside her.

"I'll sit beside you until you fall asleep. If you start having the nightmares I can wake you up if you think that will help," he told her.

Elitariel pushed back the wild lock of hair and moved a bit closer to Micah. Meldiron walked up to the fire and curled into a ball, back facing the flames. He purred in content. "I-I would appreciate that, Micah..", she said in a whisper as she closed her eyes and drifted into sleep.

Her sleep was deep, and relaxing for a while. The elf didn't really dream of anything in particular, just rest. Her breathes were deep and steady as she caught up on her missed sleep from the past couple nights.

But then it started. Relaxation turned into torment. The breathing from the elf was now rapid and short, like she had just ran a race. Sweat began to drip from her forehead as she tossed and turned. She dreamt of a large grassy hill that had a small quiet village on it. Everyone was going along with their everyday life. Then the hill was engulfed in darkness and a blackness came over. When the dark was passed, it revealed a village that had been burned to the ground, and everyone, even women and children, slaughtered.

Micah sat by the fire and leaned his chin on his chest while Elitariel slept. He rested but did not sleep. She seemed to be sleeping well until she began to toss and turn.

Micah reached over and put a nad on her shoulder and talked to her queitely. "It's alright," he told her. "It's just a dream. No need to be afraid."

He wasn't trying to wake her up. He thought, perhaps, he could calm her and let her sleep. He knew how much sleep she had been missing.

The evil seemed to creep towards Elitariel now. Closer, closer. It had done it's job with the village and now it wanted her. Suddenly, the darkness stopped. The hill with the slaughtered innocents disappeared. Some kind if warmth on her body blew the darkness away from the dream. Elitariel did not awaken, but her breathing calmed now and went back to the shallow, steady pace. She did not dream, but actually slept through the night.

Once Elitariel calmed down Micah moved quietely over to his bedroll and lay down for the night. He kept an ear open, just in case she began to dream again, but he never heard he stir. He srifted off to sleep until some time after sun rise.

Elitariel actually slept peacefully the rest of the night. The rising sun in the morning hit her shut eyes and began to wake her up slowly. She stirred and pushed herself up from the ground, stretching from last night's sleep. Meldiron mimicked her actions, and added a yawn with a high pitch squeak. She looked over to the fire, which was now smoldering ashes, and watched Micah awaken.

"Beautiful sunrise this morning..." She crossed her arms from the morning chill and stood at the entrance of the cavern. A light breeze swept her golden hair to the side into the wind. The sun was rising into a clear morning. Many shades of pinks, yellows, and blues colored the sky. Where she was standing created a halo of sunlight around her silhouette.

"Indeed it is," Micah replied. "You slept well, then?"

He stood to his feet while awaiting her answer and grabbed a few more sticks and reatarted the lingering coals. It would be nice to have some heat as they at their morning meal.

He glanced up at Elitariel. It wasn't just the beautiful morning or the way the sun frames her as she sat... Though that didn't hurt, she looked fresher and well rested. Like a radiant elf maiden, as she should be. Not a weary elven outcast that sleep fles from like a river from the hill country.

Elitariel nodded then turned back to face Micah. She really was well rested. It didn't only show on her face, but through her joyful attitude as well.

"I slept....incredible! The best sleep I've had in a while. Although, I do remember having a small bad dream, but then it suddenly ended, just like that", she snapped a finger and smiled.

When she snapped her finger, the fire burst out in huge flames. Meldiron yelped and ran away with his tail between his legs. Elitariel shrugged and glanced at Micah sheepishly, "Oops, sorry about that..."
