Prompt 61: Fear


Legolas stood near the cliff.

His hands were shaken as his eyes were locked over the dark elf, Eöl.

Eöl came closer and closer, approaching Legolas, murder in his eyes.

Legolas moved one of his shaken hands over his pack reaching to grab an arrow.

Legolas felt tears leaving his eyes as he stared at Eöl. It seemed that the dark elf just getting closer and closer to him.

'No…' Legolas hoped that the dark elf would halt instead of coming forward.

But the dark elf did not stop as he seemed moved closer and closer over him and then Legolas could see Eöl pull his sword from the scabbard.

In the moonlight the sword shone like a crystal.

Legolas pulled two arrows from his quiver, and with shaking hands, he moved it over the bow, strained it though he released the arrows in fear, and cursed the air as he missed the target, missed Eöl.

As he moved his leg backwards he found only air.

'Please Valar… help me…' Legolas prayed, hoping someone would save him from the wrath of the dark elf.

The hard look that Eöl gave him, made the fair elf draw into himself, he could felt the dread in his body, he shivered at the look of the dark eyes, black eyes that stared at him, and then Legolas gave a cold-blooded scream…

The End…
