Resting with her back against the ancient tree, amongst whose roots she had discovered this treasure, the girl carefully examined her find. Turning it this way and that she traced curves and swirls that became leaves, flowers, and birds when she looked carefully.
Such a comb would surely give great pleasure as it slid through her hair – or the hair of a lover. It was so beautiful that she could believe it magical…
Perhaps, she thought as she slid the comb into her pocket, people were right and once, long ago, the fair folk really had dwelt here in Ithilien.
