Ch. 75 – Get

Get – Finduilas POV – 3 of 4

In which the Warden gets testy, the Monster gets her way, the Quartermaster gets an ultimatum, the Prince gets a new grandchild, and the Steward gets what he wants.

Havens – Denethor POV – 3 of 4

In which Denethor and others look for places for their minds, hearts and bodies to be at peace.

*****

Mr. Snarly continues to be happy, but I think he knows it is not anything he can count on.
