The characters are the property of the Tolkien Estate.No profit has been,nor will be made from this.

Written for the There and Back Advent Challenge. 

Talk to the Trees

We need their help, but will they listen? I look at Merry and despite our plight, part of me wants to laugh. Should we ever return home, who would believe that we spent the day listening to talking trees? If anyone had told me such a tale, I’d say they had drunk too much ale!
Why must the Ents take so long? Don’t they understand the need for haste? Sauraman will destroy them!
I whisper to Merry telling him my worries and fears. I look up at the Ents' wise, ancient faces and suddenly I know they will choose well.
