3. Wearisome Speech

"They lied on us.  Yesss they did.  Said we creeps into cradles, drinks blood, and slips away…"

"Stupid fat Men!  Drink blood and leave all the tender meat?  Never, my precious…"

Seregon, Counsellor of Taur-nu-Fuin, once of Doriath, shudders at the words.  Not from disgust - he's heard far worse from captured Orcs - but from the sheer (and rare) rationality of what the 'Gollum' has just said, and what it implies.

It seems that at least one of Thuringwethil's brood walks in his woods yet again.  

A/N: Seregon is (I believe) an OC created by Jay of Lasgalen.  

"The wood was full of the rumour of him, dreadful tales even among beasts and birds. The woodmen said that there was a new terror abroad, a ghost that drank blood.  It climbed trees to find nests; it crept into holes to find the young; it slipped through windows to find cradles." - Gandalf, FOTR
