"This was necessary, wasn't it?" Lolegolas asked quietly. He briefly tried to count the number of bodies pierced by his own arrows but quickly stopped. He didn't want to know. "They were your own people."
"No longer, mon," Vol'jin said. "And you needed something special if you'll enter the Grimtotem camps. Something more than a pretty bird. You need a steed who will fight as hard as you, if you will save your man's life."
"Is he still alive, then?" Lolegolas wondered. "It's not too late."
"You've not much time, but this will aid you," the big troll responded. He held the reins to a massive bear, covered in troll armor. It snarled viciously, but the bear abated its growl when Vol'jin scratched its ear. "It is an Amani Battle Bear, maybe de only t'ing to come out of this place that's worthwhile."
"Well, then," Lolegolas said, bounding on to the bear's back. He took the reins from the troll leader and swiftly turned the bear around. "We will ride like the win. Throgg will know I'm coming, and I'm not going to let him down."
