Trying to suppress his worry, Thranduil hurried towards the healer's quarters. After ten years, he was used to the many mishaps of an energetic boy, but 'badly blistered' sounded quite serious.

He stopped short at the sight of a half-naked, very unhappy Legolas, covered with swollen, red pustules. His face was dirty and tear-stained, but at the appearance of his father he mustered a brave smile.

"I fell into the nettles,“ he explained.

Of all the hare-brained ideas...! "Without your tunic on?"

Legolas shrugged.

"I wanted to catch that frog and not get my sleeves wet, lest I get scolded."
