You are walking alone, when suddenly you hear singing. You look for the voice and see Legolas from Mirkwood. He sees you and you almost leave when he says, "I know you, you are _." "Yes," you say. "It is an honor to meet you." You blush and he asks, "Were you walking alone?" "Yes," you reply. "I don't see why someone like you would want to be alone," he tells you. Your eyes fill up with tears. "Ever since my brother died two years ago, I have found no hope for myself, so that is why is wish to be alone." "I'm sorry," he says sympathetically. "Come," he says suddenly, "I will walk you back to your home." "Thanks you."
After walking for a half an hour, you come upon your home. "This is where I live," you tell Legolas. "And a nice home," he remarks. "I hope to see you soon," you say, a little sadly. "We will meet again," he says, "I promise you."
He gives you a blessing in Elivsh, meaning "Peace be with you, Lady fair and loving."
You walk into your lonely house. You have never loved someone so deeply. You wonder if he loves you too. Something inside tells you yes, and you have hope for the first time ever since your brother died.
You lay on your bed in the small home to rest up after your long walk. Your eyes start to close as you slowly drift to sleep.
In your dream, you see Legolas running towards you. Orcs are closing around you and you try to escape. You see that he is alone and starts killing the massive Orc troop. When he finally kills them all, he walks toward you, grabs your hand and leans toward you when you hear a distant voice calling your name.
"_! Wake up!" You roll on your side to see your mom and she tells you that supper is on the table and ready.
"Mo-o-om!" you yell at her. "I was dreaming!"
"About what?" she asks.
"About-" you start, but then stop, thinking that this was something that she didn't have to know.
After you ate you think about you lay down on your bed and think about the day you had. You daydream about Legolas, and even dream about him more when you fall asleep. Some sort of mysterious power wakes you up and you go outside for a walk. You walk behind your house and sit by the cool, clear pond that you've seen since you were small.
"?" A voice asks behind you.
You're surprised. "Legolas?" you ask.
The person smiles, and you know it's him. You can't help but smile and throw your arms around him. He is shocked for a short moment, but returns your greeting and sits down to talk to you.
"", Legolas starts, "I was wondering if you would like to go for another walk in the morning. I was going to ask you later, but something changed my mind."
"Of course I'll go for a walk with you," you reply. "But first, I'm going to go back to bed." You exchange your good nights and you go back inside.
You wake up from your long sleep and prepare yourself for your walk with Legolas. The moment you go outside, there his is. You are both shocked for a minute, but laugh it off.
You walk the same way that you do every day, explaining that you used to walk this way with your brother before he died. You start to feel that sense of loss that you haven't in a while.
After a while he tells you something that surprises you, "I love you."
You smile and tell him that you love him too.
He seems relieved and you kiss each other wishing that you could stay like that forever.
