1. Unanticipated Accord

When we finally sought rest in the cold woods, our body heat dried the damp ground beneath us. At last I fell asleep, his broad back curved against my chest. I half-woke when he shifted restlessly; my arm lay across his waist. Perhaps its weight had roused him.

Sleep fled when, suddenly, he rolled over, his strong arms pulling me tight against him.

"Arwen," he whispered.

His eyes flew open. Surprised, he mumbled, "Halbarad. Sorry."

"No need to be sorry," I said with unexpected longing.

With unbearable sweetness, he kissed me. "Are you sure?"

In answer, I returned the kiss.

Playlists Featuring the Story

Slash With Care - 8 stories - Owner: Azalais
Slash is one of my indulgent pleasures - reading, I've never attempted to write it! - but so many M/E slash pairings are fraught with unlikelihood. The upside of that is that for me an author has to work really hard to make many pairings convincing - which means that some of the best slash is just brilliant writing. A list of fics that slash, with care.
Included because: A short, sweet surprise for Aragorn and Halbarad.
