Isildur's Heir

The characters all belong to the estate of J.R.R. Tolkien. This story
was written for pleasure and not for financial gain.

Frodo says he will take the Ring into Mordor. I salute his courage. Yet
how can one so small accomplish such a task? He knows not what lies
before him.

Surely the task should be mine? Did not my longfather, Isildur claim
this Ring as wergild? He was the hero who cut it from Sauron's hand,
not a Hobbit from the Shire! I will do what Isildur could not, and cast
this thing away.

What folly is this? The Ring would claim me as it claimed Isildur. This
task was appointed for Frodo alone. I can only stand beside him.
