Assorted Drabbles: 17. Darkness Beneath the Boughs

Originally written for the LiveJournal tolkien_weekly "Mealtimes - Breakfast" challenge. (And yes, the interpretation of 'breakfast' is somewhat... lateral...)



Darkness Beneath the Boughs



The raid comes swift and violent; clashing chaos under dark trees. Confusion reigns, until -

"They've taken the Gollum-creature! And Calandil, and-"

They are swift and their arrows deadly - but too few, too late; when they meet hours later, in a clearing far to the south, they're empty-handed.

"Do we go on?"

"Getting too close to... Dol Guldur. I'll not risk the rest of you." Legolas slowly lowers his bow, defeated. "Now I just have to explain this to Father..."

Elena Tiriel's favorite drabbles (vignettes of precisely 100 words), drabble multiples, or drabble series from Tolkien fanfic; a very personal and eclectic list of drabbles at HASA that have touched me in some way. See Inspiring Stories for a list of favorite stories of other types.

Why This Story?

See Olórin I was in my Youth in the West that is Forgotten; a perfect gem of a drabble with hauntingly beautiful language.
