The Hobbits had already lit a fire and had set out their beds, one next to the other. I stood up further away from Leon and looked at them all. The elf's expression had soothed and the dwarf had put his axe away. I looked over to the entrance of the cave where Gandalf was standing. He took a drag from his pipe and then nodded to me to follow him outside of the cave. I did as he wanted and started to make my way out of the cave but as the man I had pinned to the floor pulled his hood away I stopped dead in my tracks.

It was Aragorn. I had not seen him for years and yet it seemed like I had seen him yesterday. He looked at me, question in his eye. He did not recognise me? I was fixed to the stop and could not move, I starred at his eyes, but only saw my reflection.

“Vina,” Gandalf called out just in the entrance. I looked ahead at him and saw the confusion that was mirrored on Aragorn's face. I slowly lifted my right foot up and the other one followed after until I was face to face with Gandalf in the shadow of the entrance.

“Gandalf what are you doing travelling around here? Who are all that lot?” I asked a little bitter than I intended it to be. But he smiled at me none the less.

“I am on a quest to destroy what others couldn't. They are helping in doing so. There are four Hobbits. Sam, Merry, Pippin and Frodo Baggins.” He started but the name Baggins I had known someone before with that name.

“He's not by any chance related to our Bilbo Baggins is he?” I asked a little excited. And he nodded his head.

“You might of recognised Gimli son of Gloin, the dwarf.” He stated and I rolled the name over my tongue and it clicked that I had also once known Gloin. Gimli sure did look like his father, the red hair I reckon.

“Then there's Legolas Greenleaf from Mirkwood, Borimir of Gondor. And lastly there's..”

“Aragorn,” I finished and he looked shocked at my knowledge.

“How is it you know of Aragorn?” he asked coughing a little hiding what he had said. He had said it a little too loud and I got the feeling that they might of heard what he said inside the cave as it went suddenly quiet. I blushed a little and felt a funny sensation in my arm. I stroked it and then pulled away as Gandalf looked weirdly at me.

“It's a long story Gandalf,” I said and as I said it Gimli came into the light. I couldn't help but smile at him. He did actually really look like his father. But he wasn't smile, actually the opposite.

“I didn't mean to interrupt you both in mid conversation but your brother is calling for you Lady,” he huffed. I looked at Gandalf and he nodded. I nodded silently to Gimli to say thank you and made my way into the cave.

Leonan was sat up with the blanket wrapped around him and was talking to the twin Hobbits. He was smiling. That of which I hadn't seen on his face for a long time. They all turned to face me and I smiled at Leonan. The twin looking hobbits both blushed and I walked over to them and sat the other side of Leona and kissed him on the cheek.

“I'm thirsty V, have we got any water left?” he asked quietly and sweetly. I lent away from him and went to the corner of the cave by the bed where I had hid our pack. I searched through it. Pulling out the spear clothes and the water flask. But it was very light and as I feared, it was empty. I looked down in guilt. Why hadn't I filled the flask up when we were by that river spring? I turned back to Leonan and hid the flask behind my back. The look of sadness shown on his face.

“I'll have to get some when we pass another river Leon,” I grumbled, his smile soon faded and the cave had became very quiet. I went to get back up when some one stepped behind me and tapped me on the shoulder.
