The Road Goes Ever On
Emerging from Eryn Lasgalen's eastern fringes they halt soon after first light. Legolas vaults lightly down from Arod.

"You will come, Gimli?"

"I have sworn." The Dwarf's hand goes to the axe-head at his belt. "When Aragorn sends, the Folk of the Mountain will heed the call, to rebuild and renew."

"And the People of the Wood to plant and tend."  Legolas reaches across the pony's saddle-bow;  they clasp hands. "I shall have need of you."  Gimli grunts, nods.

Arm raised in farewell, Legolas watches the road until even to Elven eyes the small sturdy figure is lost from sight.
