Love at Rivendell

1. Love At Rivendell



Legolas knew he would be attracted to Arwen, Luthien's great-great-granddaughter and her equal in beauty. What surprised him was his intense interest in the Man. He had never seen one so close before and his father called them untrustworthy, but this one was oddly compelling.

Later, his eldest companion, the one who knew him best, looked at him sternly and said, "Remember Aperduion."
"That was in Eastern Mirkwood, besides he is now married."
"Be serious! You cannot get into the same trouble here!"
"You Mean Aragorn may be interested?"
The elder turned away and growled. Legolas turned away and smiled.


"Look, here come some of our visitors."

Arwen and her maidens stopped and watched as the warriors from Mirkwood ran by led by their young prince. He was shirtless, hair flying, chest rippling and glistening with effort. The Rivendell Elf-maidens watched him race, untroubled by impure thoughts, in fact they fully enjoyed them.

Then Arwen saw another watching the Elf-men and it brought a wicked smile to her face. As sure as she was of Aragorn's love for her, she was also sure of his appetites. She would have the jealous pleasure of keeping him away from this beautiful Elf.


Arwen and Aragorn lay on the bed, clothing mostly on but resting after using fingers on each other in ways Elrond would not approve. The anger between them from pure jealousy gone.

He smiled at her and said, "Let's not ever fight over someone else again, it is not worth it."

"Yes," she replied dreamily, "we must always swear to work it out as successfully as we worked on this."

They rolled into each other's arms and kissed passionately to seal the agreement. Failing elbows poked below them and a male voice said "Ow!"

"Sorry Legolas" they said in chorus.
