An Autumn Journey: Part Two - Into The Old Forest

Title: An Autumn Journey

Author: Jay of Lasgalen

Characters: Elladan and Elrohir

Book: LOTR

Disclaimer: Tolkien’s, not mine.


Summary: Elladan and Elrohir seek information after news from the Shire. A story told in a series of drabbles for the ‘Harvest’ challenge.  Part Two - Into The Old Forest, for the Scythe prompt.


Into The Old Forest



The leaves had not yet fallen, but debris from previous autumns crunched beneath their feet – desiccated, skeletal leaves, and the prickly shells of chestnuts.


Elrohir pointed to a faintly shadowed track. “That way – unless the trees have moved again.”


Dusk fell as their path led south, dropping into the valley of the Withywindle which cut across the forest like a scythe. 


“Do you really think this is a good idea?” Elladan asked, his voice heavy in the silence.


“We need information – and who better to ask? The birds and beasts carry news to him from far away.”


“Yes, but Tom?”
