Characters: The watcher in the Water
Summary: The watcher is disturbed.
These characters all belong to the estate of J.R.R. Tolkien. This story was written for pleasure and not for financial gain.
Deep, deep was the lake. So deep, that some believed it penetrated endless rocky stratum until it reached the very core of the earth. Dark, dark were the waters, no light reached far beneath the surface, nothing troubled its brooding slumbers until the Watcher came from Sirannon beneath the mountains.
The many tentacled guardian took up its new abode. Watchful as a vulture, it sought ceaselessly to maim and kill any that might disturb it. The Dwarves were no more, yet it remained ever watchful.
The rash one throws a stone, heralding the coming of he who bears the One.
