Direction challenge: Behind - 'A Friend Behind You III': Kortirion

Title: A Friend Behind You III
Author: Kortirion
Character: Lorien’s finest... and those two men!
Rating PG for implied smut
Course: FotR
Disclaimer: Tolkien’s characters of Middle-earth… Kortirion’s manipulations.

The Elves took all the night-watches, smiling to see the two men curled like puppies, a tangle of cloaks and arms, hands cupping hip or chest as they turned in sleep. Before dawn, Rumil heard whispers; signalling for silence, he sought out Haldir. From a discreet distance they watched the men look around, but the elves remained unseen.

Comfortable warmth and close contact overcame fears, attentively they sought to explore what they’d possessed in the darkness.

The Elves withdrew, forming a wide circle of protection... though Rumil remarked to quiet laughter,

“ ‘Tis good to have a friend behind you...!”
