Flying Without Wings
"He's not moving," Ecthelion said. "Look. Landroval is flying down to check on him."
"He's picking him up. Let's hitch up a sleigh. We can meet them on the north plateau."
They quickly removed their skates and ran to the stables. A short time later they approached the eagle which was keeping Glorfindel pinioned within his interlaced wings. Leaping from the sleigh bed they bowed deeply.
"Lord Landroval, thank you for returning our foolish friend to us," Helyanwe said.
"He was amusing to watch," the eagle rasped, skreeing in a manner almost like laughing. "He almost flew with no wings."
