The movement from circle to tri-point, square, then line, and circle again was steady, stately, the progression one that few knew or remembered save the eldest among them. Elven instruments thrummed the beat, while Men watched in amazement at the beauty of their steps. Hands touched at arms’ length but naught else, while music filled the Hall of Kings to celebrate the wedding royal.
None but Elves danced, until Elessar and Gandalf approached the floor, and two others retired to make room for them. With courtly grace, they joined the revels, Man and Wizard, wending their way through intricate entanglements.
