The Secret Garden
Legolas wandered the enclosing walls, seeking an escape from the endless maze of stone. Sunlight reflected off high white walls and buildings, but there was nothing green and growing to soften the brightness.
As he rounded another corner a murmur of leaves and tree song beckoned him. He followed the call through winding lanes to a high wall, and could glimpse branches stirring in the breeze.
From the top of the wall he looked down onto a cool green haven of trees and shade and flowing water – and a very startled Faramir.
“Legolas? Come down. Welcome to my mother’s garden.”
