Chapter 4: Are we there yet?

Ellie was lead into a less dark area of the forest. There she saw four horses resting. "Were traveling on horses?", Ellie questioned. She had only been on a horse once in her life and it didnt go every well when she fell off and broke her leg. "Well how else do you expect us to get to Rivendell?", Red 1 replied sarcasticly. She was going to mention a little invention called a car, but then decided against it. She knew if she tried to explain they would think she was crazy. "Oh its just... I've only ever been on a horse once and I broke my leg, not a very nice experience", Ellie said, slightly embarrassed.

"No worries then milady, youcan ride with me",offered Ellie's most favourite person in the whole wide world (and guess who that is). She was going to refuse but then thought against it, she had insulted him enough already.

She looked up at the horse. It was beautyful horse, with its white coat and grey specks.'It doesnt look so scary...not like that stupid horse who was the prime cause of me breaking my leg.'

She realised she didnt know any of their names exept for the ones she had given them." Err..wait, I dont know any of your names", she said. "Well, over there is Maeglin(Red 1), there is Valandil(Red 2), theres Finwë(Red 3) and my name is Legolas".

"Oh, well my name is Ellie Summers".

"I have never heard that name before, where do you hail from?", Legolas questioned.

'Hail? Where do i hail from...ohh that must means where I come from. Weird vocabulary.'

'' I come from England."

"I have never heard of that place before. Is it near Gondor?"

" Err..no. It doesnt matter. I wouldnt expect anyone to know where it is."

Legolas was now mounted on the horse and looked down at her expectingly. 'Crap, I dont know how to get on a horse!'

"Err lil help here.." In one fluid motion, Legolas hopped down and put his hands on her waist. He picked her up as though she weighed no more than a feather. He mounted her on the horse and then got on herself. She was behind him, therefore she had to hold onto his waist so she wouldnt fall off and probably break her other leg.

As they were riding, she noticed how well toned and hard his body was. 'Jebus, what does he do to work out?'

She hadnt slept in a while and the Sun would be comming in a couple of hours. She snuggled closer to his body, loving the way the soft material felt and she closed her eyes.

When she woke up, she was on the ground covered by a blanket. She looked up to see that it was daylight and wondered how long she had been asleep. She saw that the four men were sitting in a circle. Now that she had time to think about it, she noticed that they all had pointy ears. 'They must be in a clut or something'.

Legolas noticed she was awake and came over to her carrying something wrapped in a leaf.

"What time is it and why am I on the ground?"

"It is still early in the morning and we stopped for the night and you were asleep." he handed her the leaf covered item,"Here eat this". He handed her a piece of bread.

"What is it?", Ellie questioned, not sure of what to do with it.

"It i Lembas bread. One small bite can fill the stomach of a full grown man", said Legolas.(A/N: I had to put that I really did)

'Hmmm...its either poison or Weight Watchers heaven. Im not acepting anything of HIM!...but I havnt eaten for a while'

Ellie was debating on what to do. So in her stubborn ways she decilned the offer. "No thanks Im really not hungry."

So soon they were on their merry way to Rivendell. Once again she was on a horse with Legolas and she was completely and totally bored. So she decided to playher favourite car game, despite the fact that she was on a horse.

"Are we there yet?"

"No, we should be arriving in Rivendell at noon."

"Ohh ok."

(5 mins later)

"Are we there yet?"

"It is not noon yet".

(3 mins later)

"Are we there yet?"

"You have justasked me that question", Legolas said, starting to get annoyed.


(30 seconds later)

"Are we-"

"No! We are not at Rivendell yet! I will tell you when we are!", Legolas shouted, which he almost never did.

"Ok geez! I was only asking."

'Ohh this is going to be a loooong trip"
