Tangled Web challenge - Spin - "Frustration" & "Abstinence"

I commented, as part of the 'Pass the Peredhel' between azalaisdep and I, that this week they were trying to be both silly and serious - and she suggested two drabbles - and Lo! Two drabbles - they follow straight on from He Was a Wood Elf, Once... - and are part of our joint series!

“That must have been so frustrating,” she said.

“Frustrating?” Elladan asked.

“Come on – you’ve admitted to playing ‘swap the twin’ as elflings… I don’t believe you stopped when you became adults.

“In fact,” she went on, warming to her theme, “I bet you’ve played ‘which me am I?’ with loads of ellyth.”

No answer.

“Multi-coloured Elrohir must have stopped you getting far with that.

“Whereas the other difference… don’t tell me you can’t get an elleth’s head in such a spin that she won’t notice that – unless she knows what to look for…”

Eyes glinting, she added, “Like I do…!”

Truth to tell, when Elrohir’s back had born the marks of spun silk and scree, there had been no joy, no pleasure; just rest, food, and drink enough to preserve the hroar. No thought of sport with ellyth; no desire had firmed the flesh.

She had, once, been too polite to ask; but they had answered, anyway.

“You wonder how long,” Elrohir had said then, smiling wryly, “Others have asked…”

“A yén, two yéni, more, we hardly know, even now,” his brother continued.

“Some would say,” Elrohir’s smile had widened, “that we have more than made up for lost time…”

As throughout this series, those of you who know my longer stories will know who 'she' is - the rest of you can use your own imaginations with my blessings!
