Passing Out Parade

In what the outside world called Mirkwood, a warrior’s training started early. Elflings learnt to use a bow as relief from schooling; could hit a target before they could neatly write their tengwar.

But serious training began only as they approached maturity, and finished only when the trainers agreed that they had achieved a certain standard.

Now came official recognition; ten young ellyn stood as their teachers twisted warriors braids into their hair before ‘The Speech’.

“Now you begin to truly learn how to be a warrior…” said the king.

This time one graduate thought, ‘So you always say… Adar.’
