Her beloved gave her a comb one day when he returned from the fences of this, their new home. Even here the elves kept watch; but there were many quiet times which he had filled by carving the intricate design and the small, smooth teeth.
He combed her hair for her; long, slow, sensual strokes, until she ached for more.
Then she turned and slowly curled one of his braids around her finger, reeling him in towards her like a fish on a line, until their breath mingled, their lips met and, for a little while, the comb was forgotten.
