“There will be players,” Aragorn had said, and both his friends seemed pleased at the thought. But now they seemed uncomfortable, with odd glances back and forth between them, as on the stage the tale unfolded.
Obviously carefully chosen the play contained a royal wedding and, to honour the Queen, there were even ‘elves’.
These ‘elves’ were celebrating in a forest glade when, in their midst, appeared ‘non-elves’ who stumbled about, blindly, destroying the feast with their clumsiness.
Aragorn wished he knew why Legolas murmured, “They should be dwarves…” and Gimli harrumphed – but seemed to blush up to his ears.
