Glorfindel approached Erestor's studied and breathed in before knocking the door. Erestor looked up at the door as it opened and sighed when he saw who stood before him. Erestor wiped away the tears that strayed across his cheek and composed himself, standing to his feet and straightening his robes. "What do you want, Captain?"Erestor said in between sniffles. Glorfindel shook his head and walked to Erestor and embraced him in a friendly hug. Erestor stood stiffly a while then relaxed into Glorfindels touch. Pulling away, Glorfindel held he Nolda's arm and spoke.
"I am sorry, truly I am, for everything. For not telling you what i did and didn't do. For hurting you and leaving you there, when you could have been hunted by Yrch in your state, and for what happened between you and Tellan." Erestors eyed refilled and he looked away, holding his side in memory. It was still sore. "Please forgive me. You are my closest friend and I do not want to lose that friendship. I have known you for too long to lose it."
"I forgive you Glorfindel" Erestor sighed and wiped away the fresh tears. Erestor then cleared his throat and sat back down at his desk, offereing Glorfindel to sit in a chair in front of him. Shuffling a few peices of paper, Erestor placed them aside and looked up.
"So, what have i missed?" Glorfindel asked, smiling at Erestor.
"An awful lot, im afraid" Erestor returned the smile, then his face grimaced.
"I did not see Estel around the grounds, nor the twins" Glorfindel spoke.
"Nay, you would not. Estel along with eight others, left Imladris nearly two months ago. They are journying to Mordor with the ring of power, in an attempt to destroy it. The twins on the other hand are doing what they do best. They left last week an a hunting trip."
"My, my. I have indeed missed much. Tell me, who are these eight companions of Estel?" Glorfindel inquired, for even when Estel was a young child, he felt the need to watch over him and keep him in good company.
"Well..." Erestor began "... Mithrandir, is one. Along with him went Boromir of Gondor. Gimli the dwarf, Gloins son. Four Hobbits named Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin. Young Frodo is the ring bearer. And lastly Legolas Thranduillion"
"Good people then? Well, I am surprised, In all honesty, about the company of Legolas. I would have thought that Thranduil would rather have his son by his side, not out on an adventure" Glorfindel smirked.
"True, true. Even our Lord, Elrond was surprised at this adittion to the fellowship of folk. But, Leoglas is as good a warrior as any experienced Elf in the field of fighting, including you my dear Balrog slayer" Erestor rose his brow.
"Oh, you misunderstand me. i do not doubt his capabilities, Mellon Nin, just that he is not as experienced in the outisde world as, say, Estel or the twins are"
"Then that would be Thranduils fault" Erestor replied.
"He smothers him too much. it is not healthy" Glorfindel scoffed.
"Glorfindel, be careful no one hears you speak such words about our woodland king" Erestor whispered.
"Aii, do not fret, i mean no ill words against our woodland kin"
"Maybe not Mellon nin, but even your oppinions on his fathering skills should be kept in your head and not on the tip of your tounge" Erestor chuckled.
"ai, you worry too much councillor!"
"Onyl for your welfare, mellon, nothing more nothing less" Erestor smiled at Glorfindel.
"I know, i know" Glorfindel smiled and nodded at Erestor. There was a slight pause before Erestor continued.
"So my Golden Elf, where have you been this past half a year?"
"Travelling..." Glorfindel started but Erestor interupter.
"Travelling? Do you know that we have looked for you in Mirkwood and Lothlorien, and all the other hidden realms of the Elves, in hope of finding you?"
"Yes, i am aware. Elrond informed me" Glorfindel nodded.
"So, where did you stay on your travells, mellon?" Erestor rose his eyebrows and leaned forwards, looking at his friend in the eyes intensly.
"No where really. It was rough one day, and an inn the next" Glorfindel explained.
"My, my. The great Balrog slayer sleeping amoungst the firs and creaturs of the forest. What a story to tell indeed" Erestor mocked. The study door opened, and Erestor laughing, looked into the Lord of Imladris' eyes and smiled. Elrond closed the door behind himself and took a seat next to the Gondolin Elf.
"I thought i heard your laugh Erestor. What a nice surprise it is indeed. It has been a feature of your's that has been sorely missed i my house." Elrond exclaimed, tapping Glorfindel's arm in thanks.
That night, Imladirs's residents slept in contentment and peace. The tense atmosphere had been lifted and replaced with forgiveness and the happiness of reunited friends.
Sorry for the short, sharp ending. I hope you enjoyed it. I couldnt keep Erestor and Glorfindel enemies :( please R&R and tell me what you thought.
