Glorfindel was so intent on the performance that he nearly jumped out of his chair when Elrond put a hand on his shoulder and leant over to whisper in his ear, "Stop glowering at Lindir; it is hardly his fault that our guests wanted to hear the Fall of Gondolin."
"That is not it," he replied just as softly. "I do not mind the topic, merely that he is wrong on nearly everything."
He sighed at Elrond's disbelieving glance, then stood up, drawing the attention of all in the Hall of Fire.
"Let me tell you how it really was."
