Summary: Elladan and Elrohir are supposed to be keeping Estel out of trouble ...
The distant sound of splashing, cursing, and peals of high-pitched laughter drew Erestor. The twins were supposed to be keeping Estel out of the house during preparations for his birthday feast, but they had not returned when expected. Erestor followed the noise and stood on the bank, looking down at the scene below him.
Estel was soaked through, and his brothers were little better. Elrohir’s hair hung in limp strands and Elladan was knee-deep in the rushing waters, clutching a great stone. He placed it carefully, then looked up and waved.
“Erestor! We’re showing Estel how to dam the river.”
