Characters: Legolas and Merry
Disclaimer: Tolkien’s landscape – Kortirion’s just admiring the view.
Although far from home, he walked the halls with his father; listened to him discussing tactics, poured over maps in the library, remembering happier times.
Merry lay silent, watching the Elf’s half-open eyes that saw... yet didn’t see. What was he smiling at? What did he really see? Maybe... if he got nearer... Merry paused ‘I’m getting as bad as Pip!’ he thought, glancing over to check his cousin slept.
Satisfied, he crept closer... closer... until their noses almost touched.
A soft voice spoke quietly. “Shall I describe for you what I see?”
Pip yelped crossly when Merry fell over him!
