The sophisticated young lady, dressed in peculiar garments, had only discovered half of her true heritage. It had taken nearly a year for her to delve this deep mystery, and now resolve was still unattainable. Ignoring this proved a disruptively difficult experience, but despite frustrations she acknowledged the truth; that proving anything would be a dangerous proposition, perhaps even fatal, was her assessment.
Now that others were following the same path, she needed a guide who would be able, without fail, to show her the path that would not lead (even though dangers were inevitable) straight into trouble. She met an old ogre (fierce-looking and tall) who appeared to look hungry. Though his heart was worm-ridden and almost wholly eaten up entirely by greed, he was not about to attempt something against her, for she was his only recourse. A problem, greatly involving the way they were heading. This conflict would endanger all but those who had armour.
However, when it became dark, she ventured forwards in the wild. Suddenly, nothing quite managed to happen the exact moment it was clear from the creeping shadow that fell over her. Swiftly, her thoughts tumbled and she felt as though something had slipped from her mind. Yet she knew that it might just be her freakish brother Haldirion, who enjoys playing with mewlips and rebecks.
Somehow she found that that pesky (although, everything considered, endearing) brother could be something that did come with the essence of a delightful and benevolent ruler. As anyone would have noticed a couple certain dark looking but friendly men, they were fighting with a large amount of fierce diplomacy. It would be very interesting to see whether the first diplomat from lonely life could bring his sister to the place known as Imladris. Not that any fight could be as terrible as the uncertainty of not being able to understand her past.
Therefore she traveled on to the great city called Bree (which was definitely the best place to hide), so that she could try to find a piece of advice. She then passed by some strange looking barkeepers that were standing by the "Prancing Pony". She looked at them in a suspicious way, because one of the smallest barkeepers was holding a large book smeared with blood. He was not particularly surprised when the woman looked at the book. There was also a weird ornament that was dangling from his book-mark; nothing other than the smallest, most detailed engraving on a thin golden amulet. Scarcely a less reassuring talisman had ever been openly displayed.
Uncertain about how dangerous her position on this meeting would be, she quickly looked for some support. Startled by a sudden sound behind her, she took a large stick and disturbed the ugly barkeeper with a gimpy pair of fingers.
Grinning visciously, the short flea-ridden barkeep dropped his book, which contained broken pages that seemed purposefully disturbing, yet it confused her as much as too much smoke might, so she picked up her stick and glared at the shrunken features of (the) unusually ugly men.
The breeze was blowing away the long-lost pages from the book, which was falling into the outstretched hand of the young lady.
Realizing that this could start a new discovery about the mystery surrounding her heritage, she clutched the book and quickly tried to open the first page. She couldn't, though, so she gathered the pages that had blown down toward the stables and put them into the large book.
Staying out of the reach of the barkeepers, she hurried across their path and up towards the group, shaking like a small furry rodent beneath a raptor's talon.
"Look!" she exclaimed, raising the bloody book high for all to see. "This old tome is filled with many strange spells of ancient and powerful wisdom from the lost kingdom of Angmar. What shall we do to further the search for my old secrets?"
Organizing such dimwits as those she was surrounded by would try her patience, but nevertheless she picked up her courage and tried to convince them that the old book must be studied intensively. They decided to hold a meeting immediately. Entering The Prancing Pony, they anxiously looked for the best place to discreetly browse through the old book, searching every inconceivable corner inside the Pony. When they had found the quietest, unswept corner, they stealthily gathered round the cluttered table and uncurled the old book's pages so slowly they crumbled somewhat. They then made an attempt to read the runes that covered the pages. Fortunately, big draughts were served by Butterbur the absentminded inn-keeper, so they happily consumed several pints.
When they had drunk all the beer in their mugs, they felt a lot of enlightenment was to be found from more studies of her mysterious texts. Therefore, they decided
