Times challenge - an Aeon - 'One Long Moment' : Kortirion

Title: One Long Moment
Author: Kortirion
Characters: Melkor, Sauron, Gollum
Rating: G
Source: Middle-earth
Disclaimer: Tolkien’s – he made this world, Kortirion made this drabble.

It might have been an aeon; it might have been a moment... Manwë blinked, and in that timelessness Melkor conceived the notion that Arda, so beloved of the Ainur... should be his. Was he not a singer of mighty songs? Dreamer of powerful dreams? Conceiver of plans that far out-stripped mere guardianship...?

Planning took an aeon, Sauron gathered himself – then in a moment, imbued with molten golden fire, his will became an object of desire – a ring.

It only took a moment, it almost seemed an aeon... to slide hands around a throat, to squeeze... squeeze... Because it’s ours... precious...!
