    Summary

    "Hail, my lord Faramir," Éomer called, and then belied his solemn greeting by coming close and murmuring with a smile, "I have evaded both courtiers and counsellors to find you. Let us flee, for they follow fast."

    "A leader should set an example to his men," Faramir replied, laughing.

    "Even a king is mortal, and needs rest. Come."

    Summary

    In the end, Gimli thinks, Legolas will steal his heart and sail away with it, and even the wonders of the Glittering Caves are not enough consolation for that loss. But when Aragorn calls for Gimli’s help in dismantling the hidden traps of Orthanc, everything changes.

    Summary

    The first thing that happens is that Gawain cuts someone's head off. You know who it is, and you know why.

    What you don't know is that his blood was red, red like berries, and it spurted from his neck and splattered onto the ground and the dried apples laid in their platters and the dead pig on hers and the white linen of Gawain's tunic. That's why this is a Christmas story: because the knight's blood was red, but his eyes were green, and his clothes were green, and his skin was green, too, and because he had tracked snow into the hall, and because even after he put his head back on and got on his horse and left - even after they couldn't hear his hoofbeats, out on the stone path the Romans had built - the snow stayed, and stayed.

    Summary

    "Nicky is making himself a coffee, bleary-eyed from a fitful sleep, and trying to recall if Joe is drinking it this decade, and if he is then does he take it with sugar?, and he’s also thinking about The Odyssey, which is sitting in amongst a pile of books in the next room.

    He’s thinking about a question written in the margins, scrawled in Booker’s handwriting: how long does it take for a man to return from war? Does he ever return, can he ever return, what does it mean to return home, when home is not home and he is no longer the same man?"

     

    After Merrick, Nicky's right shoulder starts hurting, and it doesn't stop.
