11. snapshot: Smoke
Legolas sighed, a great exaggerated sigh, and stared down at his companions, shaking his head sadly. â€œI came outside to see what news the wind and sky carried. Alas, they carry only the tale that Longbottom Leaf masks even the voice of nature.â€쳌
Somehow, that made everyone decide to exhale at once, and Legolas found himself standing like a mist-shrouded mountain above their smoke-wreathed heads.
â€œElves!â€쳌 grumbled the dwarf, companionably as Legolas turned to hide the smile that had stolen across his fair face.
