He ran his hands down the horse's ankle and was relieved to see that at last, the swelling had died down. It had been two weeks since Caranina arrived in the courtyard trembling and exhausted her white coat a mud grey and a with severely swollen foot. She sought him out through the crowds of nobles who shrank away from the disgustingly beast and laid her head against his shoulder. He had not questioned where she had arrived from or who had owned her previously for he already knew, he merely lent her as much of his strength as he had left and hoped fervently that her mistress had escaped the fate that Hfinin had promised her; knowing that she had not.

Now, weeks later he finally allowed himself to probe her mind gently and watched as the scenes of hatred flashed before their combined eyes, wincing in pain as the arrow struck horse and faery alike, feeling the agony of an endless gallop back towards the White City. He pulled away from the animal and his knees buckled beneath him. Carenina, startled at the collapse of her new friend stepped forward slightly but Rhylin shook his head firmly and she retreated back into her stall.

He was running out of time.

By the time Laeriel had arrived he had managed to pull himself up and was leaning on a gate, her eyes questioned but her mouth did not. Not any more. It was his final gift. She wouldn't know until it was too late.

"Are you coming?"
It wasn't what she wanted to ask but are you all right? sounded too obvious and why won't you tell me what's wrong? too desperate. He grinned and walked over to where she stood, circling her waist with an arm that still shook slightly though he tried to still it. "Is it over?"
She shook her head. "They're beginning the ceremony now. The Lord Faramir and Samwise the Hobbit still haven't arrived so if we hurry we can get there before them.
"Alright then, lets go."

The new hospital gleamed in the midday sun.

Things were changing.
