Midsummer in the Greenwood. A time of magic, when it scarcely seemed to grow dark at all – no sooner had the sun set, then it rose again. It made the few brief hours of starlight all the more magical.
Thranduil’s queen was as radiant as ever; but on this night, something more primal stirred within him. He took her hand, leading her away from the music and feasting, into the shelter of his beloved trees and the warm, fragrant darkness. A touch, a caress, and she was in his arms.
“Will you celebrate Midsummer with me, my Lady?” he whispered.
