Rating: Gen

Disclaimer:  Tolkien's; not mine

Summary:  Elladan and Elrohir lead Gilraen and young Aragorn to their new life in Imladris.  Written for the 'Mealtimes' challenge, Elevenses.

Two:  Not Lunchtime Yet


Young Aragorn was restless. He kept squirming in the saddle and demanding to be let down so he could trot along beside the horses. Eventually Elrohir leaned across and swept him from Gilraen’s lap, setting the child in front of him.


Aragorn crowed with delight, and they rode in blessed silence for a while before he began to wriggle again. “I hungry!”


"Soon we will stop to eat,”  Elrohir assured him.


“But we did not long have breakfast," Gilraen objected, "And it is not lunchtime yet.”


Elladan smiled.   “You have clearly never lived with a hobbit. It is called elevenses!”

[Author Notes:  My timeline is a bit wrong here.  I was thinking Bilbo was already living in Imladris (and taught the twins about elevenses!) but of course he didn't arrive until later.  Whoops!]
