Tree challenge: Trunk

Title: Like Mighty Oaks…
Author: Kortirion
Character: Thorongil
Rating: G
Source: Pre-Ring War
Disclaimer: Tolkien – this world is his.


This trunk was darkened by sun, scarred by life’s battles… while the adjacent one was pale, supple as willow, and nearby, the golden fuzz of curls covered trunk, arms, legs… Thorongil ducked his head, natural curiosity was one thing, but staring was ill-mannered.

The Rohirrim were not prudish when it came to warrior’s bathing together – neither were Imladris’ elves, but they’d counselled him to be cautious among menfolk, who might be quick to anger.

Little did he know these men were also curious. He didn’t see the approving nods that noted his unblemished back; his few battle-marks were all front-facing.
