Sitting side by side, so close they nearly touched, two heads bowed over their assignments.

One small hand was gripping a piece of chalk, drawing on a grey slate, frowning in concentration. Awkward letters were forming, one by one.

“There, how is that?”

The other looked up, scrutinizing the offered result.
“Much better, Elros. But the “rómen” and “alda” are still wobbly.”

The chalk was thrown on the table with a huff.
“Valar, I'll never learn that! It's much too difficult!”

Elrond smiled. “No, it's not. You just have to practice, like I have to practice calculation.”


Note: “Rómen” and “alda” are letters from the Tengwar alphabet.
