Chapter 21

The First Look At The Lonely Mountain

Bilbo swung his sword nervously at the warg that was coming towards him and Aranduriel.

Fili, Kili, and Dwalin came to their rescue.

Aranduriel let out a soft sigh. She was glad to know that Bilbo and her had some back up. Thorin just might have been saved. She could only hope. She wouldn't have been able to handle someone else she knew died. Especially the one that she was trying to build her friendship back up with. Aranduriel moved away from Bilbo to join the fray.

Bilbo jumped at the white warg thinking that maybe he had no chance facing Azog and his white warg, but he had to try. Anything to keep Thorin safe. He knew that most of them had doubted him because he had no idea what he was doing which was fine, but Aranduriel had given him the push that he needed. She had given him the faith. Much more faith than anyone else in the company had given to him. He was going to at least try to save Thorin Oakenshield and perhaps they could continue on with this quest like they should have been.

Aranduriel was busy fighting one of the orcs that was giving her a little bit of a run for her gold. She twisted around and embedded her dagger into his head. She turned her head and saw that Fili was having trouble with an orc of his own. She cursed herself for not having any arrows left. She threw her dagger towards the orc that Fili was having a problem with. Her mark wasn't true, seeing the fact that she was aiming for it's head. It had hit it in the arm. Valar she missed. That wasn't supposed to happen. Perhaps in the heat of it all she was getting rusty with her skills. But then again it was in the heat of battle and they were once again fighting for their lives.

Fili was able to get her dagger back from the orc that she had thrown it at.

Aranduriel let out a sigh of relief when she heard the screeching in the air. Thanks to the valar the eagles were here. She didn't know what to think of the problem that they were in, but it had to be something to do with Gandalf. At least she thought. She really wasn't paying much attention to the old wizard when they were up in the trees. She killed another warg knowing that they were going to be safe.

She turned quickly and ran towards the edge of the cliff. She took a deep breath and jumped off the cliff. She felt the cool air whip around her. She heard the yelps and screams from the dwarves as they were taken away from the orcs and wargs. She felt an eagle below her. She gripped the feathers lightly. She looked back and saw that Azog was angry with the fact that they had gotten away. She was just thankful that the eagles had come and got them.

Fili looked at his uncle. He was only 82 and he didn't want to be king. Not this way. And not now. "Thorin!" He yelled.

Aranduriel looked up and felt her heart pound. No. It just couldn't be. She wouldn't believe it that Thorin had died while they were trying to save his life.

The eagles were taking them to the carrock. A place where they would be somewhat safe from the wargs and orcs.

The eagle carrying Thorin placed him down carefully.

Gandalf got off of his eagle and went towards Thorin. "Thorin! Thorin."

Aranduriel got off of her eagle. "Gandalf?" She asked. She moved towards the old wizard. She heard the spell. She knew what that spell was. That spell was to help guide the person back into the light and help save them from death. She swallowed the lump that had begun forming in her throat. It scared her shitless to know that Thorin almost lost his life. Or he did and Gandalf was bringing him back.

Thorin gasped and looked up at Gandalf weakly. "The halfling?"

"It's alright. Bilbo's here. He's quite safe." Gandalf told him.

"And the elf?"

"Aranduriel is safe as well."

Thorin got up with the help of Kili and Dwalin. He shrugged them off once he had gotten up. "You!" He said to Bilbo as he walked towards him. "What were you doing? You nearly got yourself killed! Did I not say that you wouldn't be a burden? That you would not survive in the wild and that you had no place amongst us?" He said as he got closer and closer to Bilbo.

Aranduriel watched on in shock. "Thorin…"

Thorin held up his hand silencing Aranduriel.

Bilbo looked very scared. He is worried that Thorin would indeed send him home. Even after he had risked his own life to save Thorin from death.

"I've never been so wrong in all my life!" Thorin said, pulling Bilbo into a hug.

Bilbo was surprised to have such an action towards him. He hugged Thorin back.

"I am sorry I doubted you." He said pulling away from the surprised sandy haired hobbit.

"No, I would have doubted me too. I'm not a hero or a warrior…. not even a burglar."

Everyone chuckled at what Bilbo had said.

Thorin turned his attention to Aranduriel.

Aranduriel swallowed the lump in her throat. Here it comes.

"You shouldn't have done what you did."

Aranduriel shook her head. "I would always help. I would always risk my life to save another. That includes you."

Thorin looked at her scruatantly. He wasn't really understanding why she was still planning on risking her own life. But he then knew that Aranduriel, daughter of Lord Elrond, was going to be the one that would always be there no matter what. Thorin turned his head and looked over Bilbo's shoulder. He then strides forward.

Bilbo turned and saw what Thorin was looking at. "Is that what I think it is?"

Aranduriel smiled when she saw the Lonely Mountain. They were getting closer and closer to their destination. But they still had a long way to go in a short amount of time.

"Erebor- The Lonely Mountain. The last of the great dwarf kingdoms of Middle-Earth." Gandalf said proudly.

"Our home." Thorin said softly.

A bird chirps as it flies by them.

"A raven! The birds are returning to the mountain." Oin said happily.

"That, my dear Oin, is a thrush." Gandalf said with a smile.

Thorin smiled. "But we'll take it as a sign. A good omen."

"You're right. I do believe the worst is behind us." Bilbo said softly.

Little that they knew what would be waiting for them inside that mountain was a live and a very much awake dragon.

Aranduriel looked at the mountain. She knew what was to be expected if they had to travel through the Greenwood. She was going to be meeting up with more than one fellow elf that she wasn't willing to meet up with and one of them hated her because of what had happened years prior. But for now they were getting a much needed breath of fresh air and looking at the mountain that they would be getting to and hopefully it would be in time to open the hidden door.

Far over the Misty Mountains rise

Leave us standing upon the height

What was before, we see once more

Is our kingdom, a distant light.

Fiery mountain beneath the moon

The words unspoken, we'll be there

soon

For home a song that echoes on

And all who find us will know the tune

Some folk we never forget

Some kind we never forgive

Haven't seen the back of us yet

We'll fight as long as we live

All eye on the hidden door

To the Lonely Mountain borne

We'll ride in the gathering storm

Until we get our long forgotten gold

We lay under the Misty Mountains cold

In slumbers deep, and dreams of gold

We must awake, our lives to make

and in the darkness a torch we hold

From long ago when lanterns burned

Until this day our hearts have yearned

A fate unknown; the Arkenstone

What was stolen must be returned

We must awake, and make the day

To find our song, for heart and soul

Some folk we never forget

Some kind we never forgive

Haven't seen the end of it yet

We'll fight as long as we live

All eyes on the hidden door

To the Lonely Mountain borne

We'll ride the gather storm

Till we get our long forgotten gold

Far away the Misty Mountains cold
