Pippin stared in amazement "What's happened" he quized

As Aragorn watched Merry he felt dispair grasp him firmly around the heart. Was it possible anything else could go wrong? He watched Sircyn signal a warrior to pick up the stricken hobbit but it was as if through water. He shook his head to try and clear his vision. "Can you take him to the healing houses, my friend?"
"Of course," the soldier nodded briskly and exited carrying Merry.

"Strider, do something, you are the healer aren't you"
Aragorn looked at Pippin who seemed to be hovering in indecision. "I am Peregrin but there are those more competant than me. And what of you? Do you still mean to collect the ents? We desparately need their aid Pippin, but I understand if you wish to remain with Merry."
"I can do it if you need me too but, Strider, Merry and I do every thing I dont think I can go if I am worried about him"
"He will be alright. That young hobbit has suffered worse than a fainting fit. It is of course your decision. I have rarely if ever seen you and Merry separate but I promise you he will recover soon."
"Thank you, Strider. Then I know what I must do." Pippin was determined now more then ever to get the ents, Merry would have wanted it. "If I stay I can do no good but if I go it could change the course of the next battle." Pippin resolved that he had no choice. "Promise me Strider you will help him. I guess I must now go alone, Strider this is important this could fail if the ents dont trust us"

A faint smile touched the king's lips but quickly faded again. "I will do my best Master Took. But you shall not go alone; Fangorn is far from the White City and with war declared it is hardly safe for one hobbit to travel alone. I agree that it would not be safe for your companion to enter the forest with you, but would it not be acceptable if they mearly escorted you to the Entwash?"
"But if this person is spotted at the edge of their terrtory, what would happen then"
"I am willing to take that risk. You shall not travel alone. The ents are far more likly to recieve another into their forest than a party of orcs are to leave you alive. Why not take someone you know? Your friend Bergil would probably welcome the trip. He is a brave youngster if a little over enthusatic."
"Fine, I will agree to this but he must return to Minas Tirith as soon as the tallest tree is spotted"
"Whatever you feel is best. You wish to leave tonight?" Pippin nodded and Aragorn cast his gaze out of one of the nearby windows onto which the rain lashed with frightening force. "I advise you to wait. Stay with your friend tonight, set out in better weather. If you can find one small enough please take any pony in my stables to carry you. I'll alert Bergil and he'll meet you at the gates at day break."
"I will see Merry now if you dont mind Strider I will need rest before this journey.
"Of course," Aragorn agreed.

As Pippin left to speak to his friend Aragorn sank down against the tree again; weariness overcoming him.
