Title; The Straight way
Challenge: Unmentionables; telescope and spectacles
Characters: Tindómë and Gimli
She had missed it!
She had fallen asleep in their cabin and, when she awoke a few hours later, the sky was clear, the wind still blew from due East – but there was something different about the motion of the ship and the sailors said they had crossed onto the straight way.
Well, nothing to do now but look ahead.
Tindómë wished she had a telescope, but elves professed no need for such technology and Gimli, although he understood the concept, had always been more interested in things underground or close at hand. Embarrassed, he even admitted to preferring spectacles.
