An Autumn Journey: Part Four - Tom Bombadil's Story

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 Four - Tom Bombadil's story, for the 'Thresh' prompt.


Tom Bombadil’s Story



“Come now, listen well, Tom has got a tale to tell …”


It was a long, rambling tale, and Tom’s doggerel difficult to decipher. Nonsense it seemed, but as they listened they could thresh out the substance like wheat from chaff, and among the stream of words a story emerged. News of strangers in the forest; riders hooded and cloaked in black. Not dead, not alive, but somewhere in between.


Elladan felt a shiver run down his spine despite the brightly burning fire before them. He glanced at Elrohir. “Nazgûl,” he breathed. “We need to take word back to Imladris.”
