Once everyone was up we packed up, and headed out. I grabbed my backpack and got on Hebethy. I trotted up next to Eowyen who was helping Gimli onto her horse. "Are you ready?" I asked as Hebethy pawed the ground. 

"Yeah I think so," she said as she grabbed the reins of her horse. We started walking out. I noticed Freda, and her brother walking and looking tired, and I walked over to them, and got off Hebethy. 

"Would you two like to ride my horsey." I said in a childish tone. Freda ran up to me,and I picked her up and plopped her on Hebethy's back, I turned to the boy and he hesitated. "Come on it's okay, I don't need to ride" He walked over and I lifted him onto her back I grabbed the reins and started to lead Hebethy toward the kings section, which was at the front. 

I came up next to Eowyen and we started walking. As we walked Gimli was gabbing on. "It's true you don't see many Dwarf women. And in fact, they are so alike in voice and appearance, haha that they're often mistaken for Dwarf men." Gimli said. Eowyen and I looked at eachother, and smiled. Then we looked back to Aragorn who was riding next to Legolas. 

Aragorn reached up and stroked an imaginary beard mouthing "It's the beard..." I stiffled a laugh. I turned back to Gimli who was still talking.

"And this, in turn, has given rise to the belief that there are no Dwarf women. And that dwarves just spring out of the holes in the ground!"  That was when me and Eowyen lost it, we just broke down in laughter. "Hehehe! Which is of course ridiculous..." He rocked on the horses back and accidently hit its side, and the horse took off, and of course Gimli fell right off. 

He landed on his back and tried to get up, but he was like a turtle who was stuck on his back. Eowyen ran up to help him. "It's alright, it's alright. Nobody panic. That was deliberate. It was deliberate." Gimli said taking Eowyens hand.

I heard a horse come up behind me, and I looked behind to see a tan horse with Cecidia on it. I turned back around and rolled my eyes. "Hi Legolas you looked bored up here," She said. I could feel her eyes stare at the back of my head. "I thought you might want some company." 

"Umm, I wasn't bored" He said. Then I couldn't help myself. 

I turned around. "What do you mean Legolas, you just told me that you wish you had some company" I looked at Legolas and smirked. 

I faced front again, and then I heard some kids laughing in the distance. I looked up to the kids on my horse and I saw them straining to see the playing kids. "You two want to go play?" I asked. They both nodded. I opened my arms and they jumped into them, and I let them run. "Be careful" I yelled after them. 

I transfered my attention back to Legolas and Cecidia. "So, Legolas where do you live?" She asked. 

"Mirkwood" He grumbled. I could tell he didn't want to talk to her, but that was his problem. 

"So in Mirkwood, are you like a warrior?" She asked in a girly tone. 

"I'm not like a warrior, I am a warrior" He said in an exasperated breath. 

I then spoke up so they could hear. "Well you are a warrior, but you are also the kings son." I turned around and Legolas gave me the death glare. 

"You are a prince!!" She shrilled, and Legolas grumbled something. 

I was about to say something else, when I felt an evil presance coming toward us. I perked up, and  Hebethy perked up also. "Lets go" I said jumping onto her back. I nudged her sides, and she weaved through the crowds of people. Once we were out of the piles of people Hebethy sped up until we reached the top of the hill.
