6. Paternal Instincts (Elladan, Elrohir)

prompt for December 6 - 19 weary wargs

Inside, mewling sounds rose from the dark depths where Elrohir leaned over a pit. Thrusting his torch down, Elladan saw many squirming fuzzy shapes.

"What's down there?"

"Nineteen sleepy puppies. Should we keep them?" Elrohir wondered.

"Warg pups?" Elladan protested incredulously. "As pets?"
