Not So Brave - Ghost


Title: Not so Brave
Author: Linda Hoyland
Characters/Pairing: Aragorn, Eldarion, Elfwine, OFC

Rating: PG
Warnings: none
Book/Source: LOTR book-verse

“Tell us a story, please,” the children begged Aragorn.

“What sort of story?” asked the King.

“A ghost story!” Eldarion demanded.

“I’m scared of ghosts!” Faramir’s small daughter protested, looking scared.

“There aren’t any!” Elfwine retorted with a superior air. ”Girls are such cowards!”

“Maybe then you would have gladly ridden with me along the Paths of the Dead and sought out the unquiet spirits that my ancestor had cursed?” said Aragorn. “Elestelle does well to beware of things that chill even a warrior’s blood!"

Elfwine crept closer to the others. “I don’t think I like ghosts,” he whimpered.


A/n. In this drabble(as in my stories) I imagine Eldarion and Elestelle as around the same age and Elfwine about a year younger. This concludes the "Pottery" series.
