Written for the "There and back" challenge.
This is a sequel to "Odious Orcs". It is a parody,AU and not meant to be taken seriously.
“You are injured yet again? ”
“Legolas was tortured by Orcs, then fell from a tree and broke his ankle,” explained Aragorn.
“And what of you, my son? “ Elrond enquired, raising his eyebrows and regarding Aragorn, who was covered in blood.
“ I was shot by an arrow,” Aragorn explained.
“I will heal your hurts,” said Elrond, causing the friends to sigh with relief.
“Thank you, we can go on our hunting trip tomorrow, then!” smiled Aragorn.
“No, you shall not. I plan to lock you in the infirmary for the next month!” Elrond said with an evil grin.
And a more serious take ......
“I have told Aragorn that he may have your hand in marriage,
Arwen’s face lit up.
“When he is King of both Gondor and Arnor,” Elrond continued.
Arwen’s eyes blazed. ”Ada, you cannot! That is cruel, that is evil! He is mortal, his days are not like ours.”
“Precisely, my child. You need time to reflect on your choice. Aragorn is greatest of Men, but he is still destined to die.”
“I have given him my heart and would know bliss as his wife!”
“The Doom of Men will seem hard at the ending,” Elrond replied.
