Tangled web challenge - weave - 'Birthday Boy(s)' : Kortirion

Title: Birthday Boy(s)
Author: Kortirion
Character: Halbarad
Rating: G
Source: Middle-earth
Disclaimer: Tolkien's... well, mainly!
Notes: Ostensibly for the weave challenge - but originally posted on my journal, March 1st, as a birthday note... just thought I'd cross-post it here a well.

Fine birthday this was!

His best friend vanished into the wilds to impress his girlfriend’s father...

He took another long pull at the tankard – and found it empty.

“Lan’lord... another of your finessshh...”

Butterbur looked over. “Don’t you think it’s time to be a-goin’ to yer bed - sir?”

‘Sir’ was a notable afterthought, but Halbarad was past caring.

It was their birthdays, a day they’d always shared... and here he was... weaving his way upstairs to a cold, lonely bed.

“Bloody quests! Where’d they get you, eh?”

While across the plains... Three Hunters ran with no thoughts of celebrations.
