The second in the Rushlight Trilogy, which began unexpectedly with the Teitho story, “By Such a Foolish Name”. Bowen Rushlight brings home a Ranger in need and finds his ideas about Rangers tossed to the winds. Rated for references to the harsher aspects of Denlad's childhood, but nothing at all graphic.

Middle-earth and its denizens belong to Professor Tolkien... I only take them out to play with for a while before I put them back where they belong.
Many thanks to my betas, Inzilbeth and Estelcontar.
Reading "By Such a Foolish Name" is recommended, as this story takes up where it left off.
A slight word about the rating--this is not a graphic story by any means, but at the same time, if you've read any of my stories that include Denlad, you'll know he had a very painful and harsh childhood. There are references to that here, but the focus is not on the gritty details but on the hope that a man can overcome such things, even when the memories may occasionally crop up and cause distress.
Onward now to the story!
