5. Chapter 5
The Woodland Halls
The water dripped off her finger tips like diamonds and clung to her milky skin like pearls. She sighed as she slid deeper into the warmth of the scented water, leaning her head back to gaze upon the scenes intricately painted onto the ceiling. It was of the cycles of the year, each depicting the Great Greenwood in all of it's floral splendor during each season. It reminded Adlanniel of how her host, the Elvenking, often wore crowns fashioned from different floras available during each. She gazed up at the scene of Summer; the trees a rich green and full of foliage, certain fauna nibbling on the undergrowth. It brought her thoughts back to what had occurred that day on the forest floor, and she shivered with a sensuous remembrance; of the bodies of herself and Legolas entwined in deep passion, their moans of pleasure reverberating through the trees.
She let out a soft sigh of arousal at these memories, and relaxing her lithe body she reached down into the silky water to touch where Legolas had lovingly caressed her. She was surprised to feel that her pearl was still tender and sensitive to touch as she traced her finger around it. She closed her eyes at the sensations she felt quiver throughout her body as she stroked, her thoughts of Legolas delving inside of her and his body grinding against her in rhythm made her crave for more.
Adlanniel was so lost in these carnal thoughts and pleasures that at first she thought that her body being pulled towards another, and the hard, throbbing member pushing into her was part of her dream. It was not until one breast was grasped and she was pulled deeper into the rhythm that her eyes shot open.
"Legolas!" She half moaned, half gasped as he held her closer whilst she bestrode him.
"Yes?" He replied simply yet sensually, he too letting out a soft moan of pleasure as she rode him.
"I...I did not notice you enter my chambers....let alone my bath."
"Of course not..." He purred, as he continued to fondle one of her breasts with his free hand. "You were too busy daydreaming to notice. I just thought I would make it a reality. It was obvious where your thoughts were..." He grinned up at her.
She pouted at him, but the pleasure then that she felt made her loosen against his body.
"Do not tease me..." She tried to whine, only for an impassioned gasp to escape her lips before she could continue.
"Do you want me to stop?" He continued to playfully tease her, grasping her hips to pull her down harder onto his erect shaft, forcing her to let out another gasp of pleasure.
"Avo dharo!" She begged before grasping his body from an immense feeling of euphoria reverberating through her body. "Avo dharo..."
Thus she continued to straddle the Elven prince, and they rode each other until they had reached the zenith of their passion, the water lubricating their movements, intensifying their already immense pleasure.
Legolas held her gently as they went limp against each other, slightly worn from their second time to make vigorous love.
He let out a content sigh, before nuzzling a kiss onto Adlanniel's cheek. "Do you remember the first time we made love?" He asked, his embrace becoming slightly more firm, his gentle hands pulling her wet hair out of her eyes.
"I do..." She replied lovingly. "I fondly remember...on the floor of a cave behind one of the waterfalls on the Brunien, near the gates of Imladris. Not the most ideal place...but considering our circumstances...it was romantic enough." She leaned back onto Legolas's shoulder to look up at him, and they smiled at each other adoringly.
"You had barely come of age then, and even I was still so young. I remember I was supposed to have been helping you to collect healing herbs your father had sent us out to retrieve...we only returned with half of them, didn't we?" Legolas reminisced, chuckling at the the latter.
"And when we returned, Ada was very suspicious of our doings....even my brothers had stern words with you." Adlanniel added fondly.
"Indeed they did. I was not sure at the time of whom I should have been more scared of. Your brothers, Elladan and Elrohir, or your father, Lord Elrond. Even your mother and sister shot me steely glares. But of course, the sweet, charming, darling Adlanniel convinced everyone that nothing had been amiss." Legolas smiled down at her and stroked her head affectionately as one would do to a child.
Adlanniel giggled and nodded in agreement.
"And now we are engaged to wed." Legolas piped.
"Though...from our consummation we already are according to tradition..." His voice seemed to trail off in thought, and so Adlanniel looked up at him again, a little concerned.
"Do you feel regret?" She asked, her voice dropping slightly.
"Oh, no..." He reassured her, embracing her tightly again.
"I would not dare change a thing. Everything I have done with you has made me feel complete. As you heard me say to my father, the love I feel for you is pure and burns through my very being like fire that threatens to engulf me."
"Such passionate words your speak, cund vuin. The love I feel for you burns stronger than any star in the night sky. Nothing, not even the Ainur, nay Ilúvatar himself can break the love I hold for you in my heart." Adlanniel gazed into his beautiful eyes.
Legolas felt such a deep warmth in his heart at her words, and wrapping his arms around her shoulders he pulled her in to a deep, passionate kiss.
"Gi melin, Legolas. Sevig i veleth nîn."
"And you, mine. Ci velethronen" He replied.
