Here's the revision of Bonds Of Hope, apologies to my three reviewers who probably want to lynch me. (Holds up romance plot bunny) Lynch her instead!! (Grovels at reviewer's feet) I just could not get into a Jaisia/ Legolas romance; they make good friends, but never mates--'K' on with the story…Oh, yeah--Disclaimer: Tolkien's not mine and I'm not earning anything from this, it's all for fun.
Chapter 1--Passing Of The Elves
Jaisia and Kai stood beside Legolas and watched the white ships slowly sail from sight, heading to the Havens.
"Do you regret not going with them, little brother?" Kai asked.
"Nay, I will join them soon enough. Besides if I leave who would keep imp out of trouble?" Legolas said.
"I wish you had not told him my nickname as a child, Kai," Jaisia grumbled.
"It still fits you," Kai laughed. "You are just annoyed because my nickname was quiet one so no one teases me."
"Well, we could give you a new one, weed!!" Jaisia retorted.
Kai snorted. "Oh, the shame, I will never live it down!!" he mock-wailed.
Legolas was distracted as the last ship sailed from sight. "Farewell and safe journey, my people," Legolas whispered. He turned away. "We should go back to the castle and prepare for the dance and dinner Arwen and Aragorn are holding tonight."
"All right, hop on," Jaisia said. Legolas swung onto her back and the returned to the castle as the sun set in the distance.
Everything was hectic as servants hurried about setting up everything. The three of them split up and went to their rooms to get ready.
Legolas enjoyed a long, hot soak before getting out of the tub, drying off and getting dressed. He wore green leggings and a white shirt with vines and leaf designs embroidered in green and gold thread. The dance and dinner were to be held outside much to his pleasure.
Two hours later the dance began. A delicious buffet was set up at one side of the clearing. There would not be a formal dinner. Jaisia frisked merrily up to Legolas. She looked pretty in a rose colored silk shirt with matching ribbons in her hair and tail.
"You are the most beautiful lady here tonight, sis," Legolas said gallantly and bowed to her.
Jaisia giggled, blushing a bit. "Flirt," she said. They watched the dancers for a while then Jaisia sighed. "I would love to try to dance," she said.
"Then why not do so?" Legolas asked.
"I have two left feet and two right feet," Jaisia sighed. "Besides no one has asked me to dance."
Legolas bowed again. "I would consider it an honor if I could have this dance, my lady," he said.
"You are not serious! I would step on your toes!!" Jaisia said.
"I am very serious and I will risk my toes gladly," Legolas said.
Jaisia giggled at his teasing gallantry. "I will dance with you, but I wager you will be sorry," she said and followed Legolas out into the clearing.
At first it was a bit awkward, Jaisia bumped into a couple people, but they finally got the hang of it. Both of them were delighted when Kai and his mate, Lissa joined them. After a while Arwen and Aragorn joined them as well. After all that had happened it was nice to relax, alas it was not to last for long……
