5. A Challenge at Last

(for Khazar Khum) He had no idea how much time had passed since he’d seen another living being. Decades, centuries, days, hours -- he could no longer make the distinction. The orcs and goblins were not fools, and had long ago avoided any stair or tunnel that led to his den. He could hear them, many levels above, and Morgoth knew he could smell them. Hunting them was starting to lose its appeal -- he always won. It was boring. A group of dwarves had come back -- again, he did not know how long ago -- but the goblins and orcs had dispatched them easily enough. But wait - what was that? Could it be ---- Yes. There could be no mistake. Olórin. With a smile of flame which no-one saw, he began the long ascent to the Bridge.
