I totally don't own Lord of the rings. All characters found within the original books are seriously not mine.
At the last light of day we were off. I sighed as I helped Sarah up the slope. She had been gripping all evening about how she didn't want to get up and how she wanted to sleep, and how she hated the dark. I had to stifle my laughter when she and Boromir were verbally abusing each other. I looked at Isaiah and raised my eyebrow.
He mouthed " Yes I wanted to marry her"
I shook my head. Sarah was different. She wasn't the same girl that was afraid of horses. She had grown up. We all had. I sighed. She would be a mother, and I would never be. I wanted that special relationship with someone and I wanted a child of my own. But I wouldn't get it. I was positive that I wouldn't.
I looked ahead of my and I saw Legolas scouting about fifty yards ahead. Without my elven eyesight I wouldn't have been able to see him. He was...beautiful I guess would be the correct word.
He was masculine and pleasing to the eye, and he had a character that drew me to him. I liked how he had a dominance over me. No other male ever had ever effected me the he does. He could turn my legs to jelly with just a smile.
"Go scout with Legolas" commanded Gandalf. I looked at him questioningly and then shrugged it off, but not before I caught a gleam of mischief in his eyes as I ran off to join Legolas. Next to his side I looked out over the land. There was a high peak that could give us shelter when we rested.
"We should rest there" I commented. He nodded his head in agreement and then I felt a hand on my shoulder. I looked towards him and I caught a light in his eyes. One that almost made me afraid. He lifted his hand up to touch my face and I jerked back. I jumped off the rock and then ran ahead.
I somehow knew that he would follow. I wanted to play a game. Wolf and deer as I called it. He would think that he was the hunter and that I was the prey, but at the last second when he thought he caught me I would turn the tables and then the roles would be reversed. I would be the hunter and he the prey.
I swerved around several bushes, then I jumped a small river. I had to laugh when I heard a splash followed by a moan. He had stepped into the river. I ran up a large flat rock and went to the edge. I waited for him and he burst out of the bushes to my right.
He came and just as he was about to catch me I drew my knives and sliced. My blade met open air, and then I felt him press a blade next to my side. Knocking the blade aside, slashing, parrying and then I felt my left blade knocked out of my hand. It was now a fair fight. He started with one and I with two, now down to one. I jabbed to his right and then he grabbed my left arm and swung me over him. I landed on the ground and then he flipped over and on top of me. I rolled him over and then he rolled me, and then it had turned into a hand-to-hand battle. A playful fight was all it was.
I heard someone yelling, and then I felt someone grab Legolas and then pulled him from my back and out of the hold he had placed me in.
WHAT WERE YOU THINKING ELF! You could have hurt her. She is a woman and deserves respect!
"Boromir it was just a good natured fight, nothing more. And by the way, I started it." I said proudly.
He shouldn't have engaged you.
Gee, Boromir what is wrong with you? We were just playing. Do I need to spell it out for you?
Isaiah cut in "Boromir she is a big girl she can take care of herself, just ask my brother and a few of his friends and they can guarantee it."
Is your brother as strong as an elf? he shot back.
Yes, and probably dumber than you.
~When did he learn to throw insults?~
The two men were neck to neck and Boromir was about to deliver a punch.
Alright you two stop right NOW! yelled Sarah. "Boromir you lay a finger on my husband and you are SO dead."
I had to cover my mouth to stifle my laughter. Legolas draped his arm across my shoulders and I saw the amused expression on his face.
I have never seen Sarah like this. Then again she was never pregnant. I chuckled.
"Would you behave differently if you were with child?" he asked.
That I do not know the answer to. I think it would depend upon who the father was.
Who would you like the father of your children to be?
~You~ Of course I wouldn't have dreamed of saying that, so I used humor to disguise my discomfort like I always do.
"Certainly not Boromir." I said as I stifled more laughter. Boromir looked over in our direction and he looked like he was about to burst a blood vessel. I also realized why he looked like an angry boar. I was leaning against Legolas and he had his arm around my waist.
I wanted to make Boromir angry because he was getting into my business so I turned my head into Legolas shoulder and sighed.
I knew exactly what kind of effect that would have on both of them. Legolas would wrap his other arm around me and then Boromir would go tattle on us to Gandalf and Aragon.
~Ding~ I thought as Legolas did exactly what I predicted and then Boromir went off to find Gandalf and Aragon, who had somehow not shown up yet. I looked back from the way we came and I saw them helping the hobbits along.
I pulled away from Legolas and went to Sarah who was panting hard. She needed a rest, some water and food.
We were resting for the day, and around midday Merry and Pippin asked Boromir for a lesson in sword fighting.
Would you care for a fight?
"Most definitely, Legolas." I answered eagerly.
Smiling a wolfish smile I unsheathed my knives. We circled each other a few times and I looked towards Aragon who was making faces at me. Legolas took that chance to strike. I silently cursed myself for getting distracted. I twirled around behind Legolas and then he knocked my blades aside and then flipped me over and startled me in the process.
"You've gotten better" I commented. We were always a match for each other. And our battles were long and often ended in a tie. In the past week we had fought at least once or twice everyday.
"No, you just weren't trying." said Aragon.
What is that? asked Boromir.
"It's just a wisp of cloud" Gimli said.
It's moving fast and against the wind.
Crebain from Dunland! cried Legolas.
I grabbed a pack and looked towards Sarah, Isaiah had hidden her I felt a pair of strong arms grab me and pull me under a bush. The next thing I knew was Legolas leaning over me.
I certainly didn't like how we were pressed up together. But I couldn't move, he had pinned me down. The birds had flown by and he still hadn't moved.
Hey, uh, Legolas the birds are gone...so.
"Oh right." he said. He got off of me and went to Gandalf. I got up and went to Sarah and Isaiah.
We won't be going up the mountain with you.
"Why not?!" I was worried, was Sarah okay?
Because you will be coming right back down and Sarah might not be able to make the climb. Especially with it being so cold.
I'll stay with you then.
No! They will need your help. Stay with them we'll be fine.
Okay. Take my knives as precaution. I handed over my precious Claws and went to Gandalf. I didn't question their knowledge of the future. Isaiah was right during our trip with Bilbo and the dwarves so I wouldn't question him. I sighed and looked towards Caradhras.
~This is going to be bad~
I didn't like the mountain. It was cold and wet. All because of some stupid birds we were going up a snowy mountain.
~Why not just go through Moria? Because there are orcs there stupid~
I helped the hobbits as much as I could. I offered to carry them, but the men refused to let me strain myself.
Gimli said "Caradhras has not forgiven us. He has more snow yet to fling at us, if we go on. THe sooner we go back and down the better.
Legolas said "If Dandalf would go before us with a bright flame, he might melt a path for you.
If Elves could fly over mountains, they might fetch the Sun to save us. Gandalf wittily replied.
"I think your thinking of Angels Gandalf" I said. Which earned me a smack on the head with his staff.
Ouch! Gandalf that hurt.
It was supposed to. I stuck my tongue at him and trudged on.
Well, said Boromir, "When heads are at a loss, bodies must serve as we say in my country. The strongest of us must seek a way. See!
Then let us force a path thither, you and I! said Aragon.
Aragorn was the tallest of the Company, but Boromir, little less in height, was broader and heavier in build. He led the way, by shoving snow out of the way.
Slowly they moved on, toiling heavily. In places the snow was breast-high, and often Boromir seemed to be swimming or burrowing with his great arms rather than walking. I laughed. I wish I had Isaiah's camera.
Legolas watched them for a while with a smile upon his lips, and then he turned to the others. "The strongest must seek a way, say you? But I say: let a plough-man plough, but choose an otter for swimming, and for running light over grass and leaf, or over snow - an Elf."
With that he sprang forth nimbly
"Farewell!" he said to Gandalf. "I go to find the Sun!" With that he waved his hand and ran around the rocky bend and passed from view.
Go with him and keep him out of trouble. I groaned. Legolas would be impossible to keep up with. And I was all wet.
She'll be coming over the mountain when she comes, She'll be coming over the mountain when she comes. Don't worry about Sarah and Isaiah they are perfectly fine. Noria isn't a runner, she's a climber. Gee I wonder why. (mountain girl that's why)
