A Fair Exchange

Title:  A Fair Exchange
Author: Jay of Lasgalen
Character: Thorin
Rating: G (ish)
Disclaimer:  Tolkien's, not mine.

Summary:  Thorin finally gets a look at Elrond's book ...

Author Notes:  This drabble series has taken on a life of its own!  I dread to think what the next prompt will bring.  Written for the 'Lamplight' prompt.

A Fair Exchange
Thorin pulled the lamp closer, adjusting it to show the book more clearly.  He glanced over his shoulder, checked again that the door was shut; then opened it to ensure the corridor was empty and Fili and Kili nowhere in sight.
Closing the door again, he chose a page at random.  By Mahal, it was even better than Elrond promised!  It was worth yielding his map for. The dwarf-maid’s axe gleamed sharp and bright, and he imagined running his fingers through her silky beard …
Intent, he did not hear the door open behind him.  “Uncle?  What have you got there?”
