Passing the Torch
Many years later, in another land and another time, hands left documents in a little-visited corner of one of the smaller libraries at Oxford. Rolled helter-skelter, they stuck out from open spaces on the shelving.
The disorganized sculpture of pages attracted the intended recipient. At loose ends since publishing his children's book, he glanced at the shelf. "Tsch!" he muttered as he pulled the vellum from the shelves and glanced at them to reshelf them accurately.
Hours later, as the lights flickered to warn students the library was closing, he had fallen under their spell. He would chronicle Elven history.
