Title: Why?

Author: Jay of Lasgalen

Word Count: 100

Characters: Thranduil

Disclaimer: Tolkien's, not mine.

Author notes:  How did Thranduil react when he first learned that Legolas was going off on a suicide mission to destroy the ring?  Written for the Wrath challenge.


Anger consumes me when I receive your letter, and I have only one question: Why?

Why do you take this deadly path?  Do you think to find glory there? There is no heroic sacrifice in certain death.

Why do you turn your back on duty?  You are needed here, to lead our troops into battle at my side, to lead them if I fall.  For battle, assuredly, will come.

Why did Elrond suggest you for this foolhardy mission?  Are his own sons too dear to him?  Why must he risk you, my only, my beloved son, my life?

Why you?
