Can I Keep One?
“Elrohir! Look, baby wolves! Look!”
Elrohir froze. “They are not baby wolves, Estel.”
Estel scowled. “Very well, wolf cubs. You’re as bad as father sometimes.”
Elrohir shook his head. “No, I mean they are not wolves at all. They are wargs!”
“But they’re still ba… cubs. Can I keep one?”
“No! Estel, they are wargs. They are dangerous. They will grow up to be deadly. Come, we must go before their mother returns.”
As Estel trailed reluctantly down the track, Elrohir made careful note of the lair. He would do nothing with Estel watching, but he would return – and soon.
