Title:  The Rescue

Summary:   After last week’s drabble, how could I resist a prompt like this? This time it’s Elrohir’s turn. 

For the Potter's Wheel challenge, 'Slip'.

 

The Rescue

 

 

Elrohir edged slowly along the narrow branch, trying not to look down.

 

“Keep going, Elrohir! You’re nearly there!” Arwen encouraged him from far below. 

 

He stretched his arm out and could almost reach the tiny grey kitten that crouched above him. Just a little further …

 

He grabbed wildly at thin air as his foot slipped, skidding into nothingness. Then there was a dizzying blur of leaves as the ground rushed up to meet him with a bone-jarring thud. In a final insult, the kitten jumped to the ground and onto his chest, purring.

 

“Oh, well done, El. She’s safe!”
