December 23 - 2 laughing lovers
1. Blessings - by Agape4Gondor
She looked down in love. Her hopes had all been centered upon this day. His sleeping form lay in her lap. She brushed his cheek with her hand, holding her breath for the joy of it. His own handless limb lay still.
Though her entire race looked askance at their bond, she would not deny it. They had suffered terribly. Now, the Valar had blessed them. He woke, saw her gentle smile and laughed. How infectious was it! She joined him in his laughter. As she had joined him in everything.
Eru looked down, smiling at the two laughing lovers.
