The girl is mine. She will not die.

will die. Already her heart slows.

This was not fated. He has swerved from his path to cause this to happen. It has not been written, it can be changed. Give her to me.

There will be others. Ones who are more worthy.

Do you go back on our agreement now? It must be her. I will accept no other. She must perform her task. There is worth in her, if you will look.

She does not deserve my mercy. She does not deserve life. I will not consent it.


It can be undone.

She must live.

She must die.

I am the third, you must hear my voice now. She will not die. Nor may she live. The agreement was that three we deemed worthy would meet, and it should be decided. Therefore the question is- is she worthy?

You are the third. You must say.

You cannot ask me to do this now, the time is too near. It must be another.

Who would you trust? All beings, mortal or immortal, can be swayed. Who can make an impartial decision?

There is one we do not control. He makes his own fate. Let it be him.

You would ask me to stake on a mortal?

You know there can be no other.

Very well. If I agree to this, you will not try to trick him?

If you will not.

Then it is decided. But I would still have blood.

As you wish. The man Elessar shall make the choice. If he will have it so, she shall wake, and you shall take the life of the man who struck the blow in payment. Will this appease you?

It shall.

Then let it be so.

But what if he chooses against her?

Then she shall pay for her crimes with her life, and you must find another. If he would have her die, we will make it so. This is agreed?

It is agreed.

It is agreed.
