The Gift

He approached her cautiously, aware of every second. He could hear his heart pounding in his ears, his pulse accelerating with every step he took in her direction.

She looked up and saw him, and her rose-red lips curved into a smile. “May I help you, sir?”

He made a jerky bow and then proffered the bloom. His eyes were drawn to hers as if by an invisible force, one he could not resist. One he did not want to resist.

“For you, Celebrían,” Elrond said.
