The Fellowship Of Legolas
As many around Legolas began to sit down at the meeting of the council, Legolas himself sat down next to his best friend Aragron who had been with him through thick and thin and would be until the die they both died.
The main elf, Erlond stood before beginning to speak.
"Strangers from distant lands, friends of old. You have been summoned here to answer the threat of Mordor."
At this, Legolas tightened his grip on the ring that was hanging around his neck hidden from view at the moment by his hair.
"Legolas?" Aragorn whispered from beside him but hen payed no attention as Erlond continued.
"Middle-Earth stands upon the brink of destruction. None can escape it. You will unite or you will fall."
"Every-one of you is bound to this fate, Legolas bring forward the ring" Erlond said guestring to Legolas who stood unhooking the ring from around his neck before placing it onto the pedstal in the middle of the room before sitting back down glad that he had for people were now staring at the ring and not at him.
Everyone bent forward to look at it but one stayed forward.
"So it is true…"
"Boromir" Erlond said telling him to sit back so he could continue.
"Well it seems that this one ring has a message and it is, Ash nazg durbatulûk, ash nazg gimbatul, ash nazg thrakatulûk agh burzum-ishi krimpatul." (One ring to rule them, one ring to find them, one ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them).
Aragorn could see that the guy who Erlond had called Boromir was about to say something so he himself stood.
"Let me tell you something, one ring answers to Sauron alone. He has no other master."
As Aragorn was about to sit, Boromir sneered at him.
"And what would a mere ranger know of this matter?"
That moment Legolas found his courage and stood his blonde hair blowing behind him.
"This is no mere ranger. He is Aragorn, son of Arathorn. You owe him your allegiance" Legolas said his eyes fixed on Boromir who seemed to back down under his stare.
"And he's also the heir to the throne of Gondor" Legolas said not knowing where it was that his courage was coming from.
"Havo dad, Legolas" (Sit down, Legolas) Aragorn said breaking into the conversation for although Legolas was like a brother to him, he never could understand Elves all that much so didn't know when they would stop.
Legolas sat obeying his friend but he was still not happy about Boromir who seemed to be looking at Aragorn as if he was something funny to look at.
On the other side, the great wizard, Gandalf the grey stood whilst around him were four hobbits.
"Aragorn is right, we cannot use it" He said and Legolas closed his eyes knowing what was about to come next was not something that he would really want to hear.
"You only have one choice" Erlond said looking around the room "It must be destroyed."
"Then what are we waiting for" A ginger haired dwarf by the name of Gimli said standing up axe in hand ready to attack the ring and he did so but was repelled back.
All at once everyone turned to the ring including Legolas who knew it would still be safe even though he wished it was gone by now but he had no luck. The ring was still intact whilst shards of Gimli's axe lay around it.
"The ring must be destroyed where it was made in the fires of mount doom, only there Gimli, son of Glóin can it be unmade."
"And one of you must do this task" Erlond continued looking around at everybody twice before his eyes came to rest on Legolas.
"I will be the one to take" Legolas said getting to his feet once again and looking at the council.
"Oh no you're not" Aragorn said standing all of a sudden "Not without me, you're not." He continued causing Legolas to smile at his friend.
"I'm in too" Gimli said joining the two who were smiling again now that the group was three.
"And me." Boromir.
"Don't forget about me Legolas, it is I who gave you the ring to look after and I will not let you leave without a guardian." Gandalf.
"And us hobbits, we want to fight too" The four hobbits said standing up one by one then Gandalf introduced them as Sam, Frodo, Pippin and Merry.
"Nine Compains so it shall be, you nine shall be the fellowship of the ring" Erlond said before one of the hobbits, Pippin stood forward.
"Great! Where are we going?"
The next day, the fellowship were ready to leave and currently had stopped at the mountains nearby where Sam was cooking and Merry and Pippin were practising Sword fighting with Boromir whilst Aragorn looked on smiling and Legolas stood out from the group the ring once more around his neck as he tried to understand why it had to be him that was on this journey.
"Two, one, five. Good, very good." Boromir said each time the swords made contact with each other.
Aragorn laughed telling Pippin who was mock-fighting Boromir what to do.
"Move your feet."
From where he is, Legolas leaps onto a rock his elvesih eyes sensing something that is coming but due to his eye sight, they made it look as if it were closer than before.
"Guys, Crebain from Dunland fast appoarching" Legolas said before he was grabbed by Aragorn who pushed him into the bushes whilst the others hid amongst them apart from Aragorn who stayed by Legolas's side knowing that was the promise he had made to Legolas's father many years ago.
The fire goes out as Sam splashes some off his water onto it just as the birds arrive circling the place before leaving not finding anything at all.
Once sure they are gone, the fellowship emerges and Gandalf is quick to react.
"Spies of Saruman! The passage south is being watched."
Legolas comes out from his hiding place leaves stuck in his hair and the ring poking out from his shirt.
"We must take the passage of Caradhras" Gandalf says pointing to a great snowy mountain up ahead which Legolas didn't like the look of but he would have to go this way if he wanted to continue in his quest to destory the one ring.
