7. Teachers (young Elladan, Elrohir, and Legolas)
"You think you can do better, Mirkwood whelp? Have the spiders taught you something that we do not know?"
Flashing him an irritated glare, Legolas rose and peered at the distant target. His opponent's shot had missed the center by no more than an inch, and yet it was perfection they all strove for. Watch and learn, Noldorin upstart. Nocking an arrow, taking careful aim—
THWAP! A clean, straight shot thudded into the target, splitting the preceding arrow directly down the middle.
"Well," Legolas said conversationally to the glowering twins, "clearly, the spiders are far better teachers than the orcs."
