Imhiriel's 2006 Birthday Presents: 5. Hidden on the Mountain - by Imhiriel

I remember being plucked from my bough. Rough hands, callused with age, holding me softly despite it. Bearing me away in the night, swiftly, silently. Ever higher up to a cold place, the wind blowing relentlessly. Whispered words bade me sleep, and endure, until the time should be right.

Now I am awake, stirred from long sleep by a Shadow departed and the joyous cry of an Eagle.

Those old hands are nearby. But other hands cradle me. Rough hands, callused by the sword. But gentle, oh so gentle. Whispered words thank me, bless me.

Gladly, I relinquish my hold.
