Prompt #21: Silent
"You need to be quiet, Gimli, or they will find us," Legolas warned the dwarf urgently.
Gimli stared at his friend, not knowing what foe he spoke of.
"Who is it? What are you talking about, elf?" Gimli whispered, looking up into the elf's blue, hawk-like eyes.
"We will be caught; is that what you want?" Legolas was losing his patience. He hoped that Gimli would finally be quiet and silent as the wind – preferably even more silent than that.
Gimli glared at the elf, not understanding why they should be hiding and whispering. He was about to say something but Legolas simply gesticulated and motioned toward the reason for all this.
"Them? You cannot be serious, Legolas," Gimli said, and continuing, he asked, "Why should we be hiding from our friends?"
Legolas became mute.
Gimli stared at him, wondering just what exactly the elf had done.
"Legolas, what did you do?" the dwarf asked suspiciously, raising his voice a little to make his point.
Their pursuers stopped and frowned at hearing his voice.
"Can you not simply be quiet? Just hush now and please say nothing!" Legolas asked, not certain if he could ever count on the dwarf in any similar request.
Soon, footsteps were heard, and Legolas watched helplessly as Elessar and Eldarion pushed aside the long and thick bush that veiled them.
"Now, I want to know which of you painted me in my sleep?" Elessar demanded and looking back and forth between Gimli and Legolas.
