Clubs challenge -' When All Else Fails...' : Kortirion

Title: When All Else Fails...
Character: Two short people...
Rating: G
Source: AU Middle-earth
Disclaimer: Tolkien imagined a whole, wonderful cosmos... but Kortirion made this bit up!

The dark club of knobbly wood thwacked against palm with an audible smack. The gathered hobbits flinched, shuffling closer together... Nobody said a word. He walked down the line slowly, making every heavy foot-fall count. Curly heads bobbed as they avoided his eyes, or found they must swallow extra hard to clear drying throats – the heavy silence lingered for eternal moments...

Smack!

Wood hit leathery palm again.

Pippin could stand it no longer. “Ok, ok... it was me! I used the last of the conditioner – so shoot me why don’t you?!”

Gimli’s fly-away beard bristled even more.

“Don’t. Tempt me!!”
