Return of the King - Drabbled, The
6. The Battle Of the Pelennor Fields
Darkness broke, Théoden led the Rohirrim onto the field. The black serpent he slew, but was brought low by a dart of the enemy.
When fear descended, two knights of the King remained. One stood defiant, Éomund's daughter. Courage awakened and a small halfling let fall a mighty stroke. Seeking death she found it, but did not die. So by a woman's hand, the Nazgûl fell.
On seeing his kin, Éomer was taken by a fey mood. He led his men into the midst of battle. Yet foresight proved true, out of despair came Hope, and the battle was won.
