Deep Roots Are Not Touched, by Kaylee Arafinwiel (Weather - Frost)

Title: Deep Roots Are Not Touched
Challenge: Weather (Frost)
Author: Kaylee Arafinwiel
Characters: Elladan, Elrohir (mentioned), Estel (Aragorn II)
Summary: Seventeen-year-old Estel patrols the Trollshaws with his brothers and makes a startling discovery.

 A/N: Arador was the 14th Chieftain of the Dunedain, slain by trolls in T.A. 2930.

T.A. 2948

“’Ware, Estel!” The hiss pulled the foster-son of Elrond up short; he dropped into a crouch beside Elladan, behind a boulder at the cave-mouth.

Just in time – earth-shaking footsteps lumbered past, and Estel Elrondion shivered from more than the frosty chill of the mid-Rhiw night. “Have you seen those before, ‘Dan?”

“Elrohir and I have hunted teryg often in company with the Dúnedain,” Elladan whispered back. “What are you doing?”

Estel was only half-listening; a glint of tarnished silver in the troll-hoard caught his attention. “Elladan, what’s this?”

Elladan’s heart clenched as Estel showed him the bloodstained star-brooch. Ai, Arador!
