Tangled Web challenge, Embroider: A Riddle in the Dark

Author: Azalaisdep
Title: A Riddle in the Dark
Source: LoTR, but more specifically curiouswombat 's drabbles here and here...
Characters: Elrond, Elladan, Elrohir
Rating: PG (more by implication than by actual content!)
Disclaimer: Middle-earth belongs to Tolkien and his heirs: I wander there for fun, not profit

Continuing curiouswombat 's and my game of Pass the Peredhil (aka Twin Tennis), this drabble follows on from One Crucial Difference and precedes How Can I Tell You Apart?

A Riddle in the Dark

“No, my son! It is not to be contemplated,” Elrond maintains. “You wish me to reopen a long-healed wound an Age old and then stitch you up again? What excuse can you possibly embroider to justify it? I am trying to imagine how it could signify that a line of bodily hair is an inch out of true, but I am groping in the dark!”

Elrohir, making a strange choking noise, leaves the room rather hurriedly. Elrond raises an enquiring eyebrow at his remaining son; Elladan sighs.

“You won’t be the only one, Father… Never mind. It does not matter.”
