Eat Drink and Be Merry challenge - Wedding: 'Unrequited': Kortirion

There would be no wedding... Lord Elrond made that clear – not until a King sat in Gondor would the Evenstar marry. Hope they’d named him, but all hopes seemed dashed. He would have left a broken man, but his Luthien took him aside.

“I waited for love and having found it, can wait still longer. Years mean little to me... but you...? Only do this - take no woman. Warrior’s grace I’d not deny you, for I know how bright men’s passion rises.”

Years passed, what arms he knew were bold and brave... save one... and she knew he’d never wed her.
