'Cold' - challenge: "Halls Beyond"

Title: Halls Beyond
Author: Kortirion
Character: Haldir
Source: Movie-verse/AU/conjecture
Rating: G
Disclaimer: Tolkien all his, but he might remember there are many rooms…

Agony subsided, cold leached away, Haldir opened his eyes. To fire-light, shouts, and sounding horns - but shouts of ribaldry and laughter... not screams of anguish as before.

A tall figure whose golden hair gleamed with light came towards him. "Welcome!"

Haldir stared - a ...man?

He held a curved drinking-horn, "Will you sup with us - Stranger?" he said smiling, but even he looked puzzled.

‘Was this... Mandos? Surely not?’ Haldir stared.

He felt a cold touch; veiled Nienna silently appeared.

"They bid you welcome for your valour Haldir, but your place is elsewhere… come."

He followed - leaving their hall, for his.
