The Loremaster's Laugh
Raised in Imladris, Celebrian saw Loremaster Elrond as a dour figure, not given to amusement. Childhood friends posited that his iron face would split assunder if he smiled.
This year Elrond's annual visit to Lothlorien coincided with a short sojourn made by her parents and, consequently, Amdir requested that they all dine with him. Celebrian had demurred at first but strangely, her Adar insisted.
Elrond's voice was rich and more captivating than remembered . . . and he laughed. She rather liked this twinkling-eyed Elrond, throwing back his head to laugh at Amdir's tale of acquisitive dwarves and inquisitive horses.
