Haldir had barely slept. Someone who had lived as long as he had didn't really need too much sleep anyway. His cool expression was unreadable as he stood on the highest point in the citadel as the sun started to rise. The city was just beginning to stir beneath but his elf-eyes were set upon the smoke from the East. Orcs.
There were not enough of them however... Haldir couldn't understand why such a small band would be brought to Gondor unless there were more yet to come. The city would be besieged.
Denethor had withdrawn into his study, refusing to acknowledge anything when Haldir visited him. So he would have to go see Boromir instead. And Joe West. They were to meet in the great hall.
There was so much to do and he had such little time to do it which was frustrating because he had been waiting for so long for this moment.
Haldir started down the steps into the citadel's intricately laid out suites, his dark eyes broody and his hands clasped behind his back. The missing device for the portal was a concern but only insofar as getting it back. He knew who had it, and knowing who had it made him know where to find it. As for destroying Sauron... it would involve alot of work by all of them. They would have to retrieve the rings of power from all those who possessed them.
In the back of his mind he did spare a thought for the humans in all this, the ones who would appreciate this great effort for the shortest length of time. Joe West and his team, the Rohirrim girl that had so much hate for him, Faramir and Boromir... they protected their lands and existances valiantly. Haldir had to protect the resting place of his ancestor's - that place where he would eventually go to if he ever succeeded in this task. If he failed then the lands beyond the sea would no longer exist to visit.
The Elf came to the Hall's door just as Faramir also arrived.
"Faramir." he said in greeting.
Faramir smiled brightly at Haldir and inclined his head.
"Haldir." the relief was palpable in the boy's voice.
The Elf gestured for him to walk in first and followed in behind, preparing in his mind already, what was to be done.
Defend the city. Destroy Sauron. Then assist West's team in returning home.
((ooc: that's a bit shit not sure what we're doing though! Were they going to do a bit of fighting at Gondor, then some of them would go try to find the rings of power and then .. faramir was to do something I've forgotten already ))
