Winter Sports challenge: Skating: 'Great Balls of Fire!'

Title: Great Balls of Fire!
Author: Kortirion
Character: Brothers Mir, their Amah (OFC), Denethor.
Rating: G
Source: Pre-Ring War
Disclaimer: Tolkien created Middle-earth, Kortirion created this tiny instant in its history.

He knew he was skating on thin ice – his father’s ideas of dignified self-discipline didn’t include cavorting with the citizens of the Lower Circles, even if this was an occasion when they were welcomed into the Citadel.

Boromir knew; he’d caught him practising. He’d shrugged, ‘on your head be it’, but secretly been rather proud of Faramir’s dexterity. Amah knew… but Amah always knew what the two boys were doing – she’d provided some cut-down leathers as combined protection and costume.

Drumroll... “…Lord of Fire!” bellowed the circus-master... Faramir, masked, entered... whirling flaming bolas - even his father applauded... at first!
