Well we got past the creepy water creature without ant broken bones!! We have passed bones and such and I am sick to my stomach (this is a new stomach trouble, I had recovered from the night before last’s dinner) 🙂 Legolas keeps his bow out at all times and Gimli his axe and Merry and Pippin theirs swords me…I keep my handy little stick I picked up (my Dad won’t let me have a weapon yet) and I keep a good strong hold onto Legolas’s cloak and Pippin holds on to mine and Gimli holds on to Merry’s and Merry walks in front (we take shifts) The torch we made doesn’t shed much light that is for sure. Wait…I just heard a noise…oh Gimli burped, never mind. Oh sorry Legolas, I accidentally pulled his cloak around his neck too tight. I don’t think he’d appreciate being choked to death. Pippin’s pants that I am wearing shrunk so they are now just a little under my knees – it sure is cold with my legs showing (BURR) *Splash* Oh I sure hope that is water and stepped into and not orc blood!!!!!! Pippin don’t step in that…never mind again. Oh great our light went out. What is that heavy noise… … …Oh it was Pippin breathing. Breath though your nose Pip! Now Gimli is laughing and saying ‘Ha, this time HE was breathing too loud.’ I’m not sure what he’s talking about.
Merry: Legolas, just find a stupid flint!
Legolas: It would be nice if I had a light to find the flint!
Merry: If we had a light we wouldn’t need the FLINT!!
Gimli: Will you stop arguing and just fix this confounded darkness!
Me: I’m so scared!
Pip: Me too!
Legolas: I am trying to find the flint, all right?
Merry: Well, do you need me to help you!?
Legolas: Yes, you can search my pack.
Merry: You mean you didn’t do that already!? Argh!! …where’s the pack?
Legolas: Right here.
Legolas: Right there!
Legolas: RIGHT NEXT TO YOUR FOOT!!!
Merry: Oh. That there.
Gimli: JUST FIND IT!
Me: What is that awful smell?
Gimli: That must be me. I am breathing in your face I think.
Me: Do you ever brush your teeth?
Gimli: Not since we left, no.
Legolas: I found the flint.
Merry: Thank goodness, where was it?
Legolas: In my left pocket.
Gimli: Light the dratted torch.
Legolas: *lights the torch and we start walking again*
That was a little bit confusing! 🙂 But once I look back on it I realize… that I hope that never happens again.
