Aragorn walked up to us. I stepped quickly away from Legolas, still blushing. I was embarrassed that I had told him that. I didn't understand why I did it. I hardly knew him. If I had told anyone back home they would have simply laughed in my face, thinking that I was screwing with them, or given me strange looks. But he seemed to take me seriously. Even more, he seemed to understand, and even share my feelings. That was a rare occurrence, especially for me.
I had only been with this strange group for very few days, but already I felt a sense of home. I embraced the woods and the forests with open arms, welcoming the soft sunlight and the clean, crisp air. Everything here was slower than at home. There were no cars desperately racing to get from place to place. Here, there was time to pause and admire the patterns that the sunlight cast through the leaves of the trees.
"Beware," he said softly, so that no one but I could hear, "Should we encounter anyone, do not speak to them. Do not tell them your name, or where you are from. These are dark times. They would most likely assume that you are a spy of Sauram's." His eyes met my gaze, but he gave no reply to my unspoken question. He turned abruptly and strode away.
I stood there, confused for several moments. There seemed to be greater forces at work around me then I had observed at first.
I was now beginning to realize, though, that for the first time in a very long time, I didn't feel lost. True, I didn't know where I was, but that was not the type of lost I meant. I could wander around this world forever, never knowing exactly where I was, perfectly content. I felt like I had I had been missing for very long, and for some reason, in this new place, I had found myself. I didn't feel quite so out of place.
With a contented smile on my face, I ran to catch up with them, the music of the trees echoing in my ears.
I apologize for the short chapter. More to follow. Hope you enjoyed it!
