The Forgotten Ones

Elements of the Resistance

2. Shadow

“Shadow is your friend,” Maggot had told us when we joined his band.

I doubt the others know the true force of what he suggested. For them, shadow is darkness, nothing more. But I remembered Bilbo’s tales. Shadow had always been the Dark Lord’s strongest weapon.

In the land of Mordor, where the Shadows lie...

We would take shadow, use it against our enemies. Sharkey’s men might rob us and beat us under the sun, but in the shadows...

Yet, in the end, dark serves dark best. It would betray us. How long until they prison me in those sunless lockholes?
