First Impressions

1. First Impressions

Snatches of laughter and song drifted from the trees as Boromir trudged through the glade. At last a fair form stepped from the morning shadows, slim and tall, dark of hair, his eyes bright and laughing.

Boromir scowled. Long journey had wearied weak hope, and what little remained him was being drowned by these foolish - if tantalizingly knowledgeable - ditties. Was this all that remained of the fabled wisdom of the Eldar? A fool’s errand indeed.

But the Elf looked not dismayed by his scowl, and the gently mocking rhymes went on unheedingly.

"Come," he bid. "The Council of Elrond awaits."
