25. A Blink In Time (Elrohir)

Author's Note: This drabble is not part of the Undying Friendship series. If it seems familiar, it is because I based it on a scene from the movie City Slickers.


A Blink In Time

Elrohir watched the young woman place her hands to the small of her back, leaning to stretch sore muscles, tight from weeding her garden. As the sun sank behind her, it revealed her form to him through her thin linen dress. He let his eyes caress her dark hair and imagined what it would be like to hold her in his arms and kiss her soft lips. To know what it was like to truly live.

The sun winked out. Elrohir rode on, but part of him always remembered the girl he had loved for that brief moment in time.
