Beyond the Sea by Sarum

Rated PG13
[Reviews - 0]
Table of Contents

“I shall not tell you my name, as I cannot risk them hearing it under any circumstances. The Dunedain call me Tauvrenil. In the Elven settlements I am Taithiel. None but Lady Galadriel, Lords Elrond, Celeborn and Círdan and Mithrandir know what I am called.”

I jumped in shock and alarm when a hand was clamped over my mouth to prevent me from screaming and an arm snuck round my waist pinning my arms to my side.

“You forgot that I know exactly who you are as well, Taithiel.” Said the person, releasing me from their clutches.

 "Glorfindel.” I said in a sigh of relief. For a moment he had me worried that someone had found out who I was and that there was trouble.

“I was unaware that you were the messenger Elrond sent to Lórien. You gave me such a fright! You should know better than to sneak up on me like that.” I hissed. “Remember what happened last time?”

“My original purpose in coming was actually to deliver a message from Lord Celeborn” He said to Haldir, ignoring me for the while. “She may walk free. I am to escort her to Caras Galadhon with all haste even if it means travelling through the night.” He finished before addressing me again.

“The opportunity of frightening you into almost falling out the tree, like you did the first time I snuck up on you was just too good to pass up.”
