    Story 1 continued


    I don't think Arwen is ever going to stop talking. An idea hits me as I polish my bow. I look at Arwen through a curtain of corn - silk hair. She's mid-speech and running well.

    "Last Yule, I lost my pet birdie. You remember, Anduin? From the kitchen prank? Anyways,---" I stop her.

    "Wanna play a game? It'll be the best of games, I promise." I smile up at her, hoping she won't be able to resist. She smiles fondly at me.

    "Why not?" She agrees enthusiastically. Hmm, I know someone who knows a reason why she might not like my game.
    ????????????????????????????????????????????

    "Yes, up against that tree! Come on now! I promise I won't hurt you!" My son, Legolas cries as he pushes Arwen towards a tree. We have stopped trade talk for a moment to watch the antics of Legolas and Arwen. To my shock, Legolas has placed an apple on her head and aims an arrow.

    "Legolas! Please try not to kill her!" I exclaim, aghast. Elronds son, Elladan snorts from behind me.

    "Probably getting revenge for her talking his ear off." He nudges Elrohir. His twin grins devilishly back.

    "Still, might be a shame if her pretty face is marred by his aim." That sends both into hysterics before their Naneth swats them. I look helplessly at Elrond while Legolas takes aim, pulling back the string.

    "Arm higher, little Leaf!" I hear Elrond yell, using my nickname for him. Legolas takes a higher aim and... SNAP! Arwen jumps aim did screams as the apple falls off her head. My little boy hops over.

    "Told ya I wouldn't kill ya." He smiles angelically at her and she grumbles.
    ????????????????????????????????????????????
    Jeez, girls are so weird. Droiunheim, or Droiu, didn't complain, and neither did Alba. But then and again, neither did Phogee or Anise and they're girls. At that moment, Alba and Droiunheim come running over.

    "Legless has a girlfriend, Legless has a girlfriend!" Mischievous Droiu sings. I blush, the red reaching the tippy tips of my ears.

    "Lady Arwen is NOT my girlfriend, and she never will be! Not ever!" I scream. My friends exchange glances and snort. Arwen suddenly walks up to them and smiles.

    "He is not my boyfriend, he is my betrothed." She says. I look over at Ada. No, it cannot be! Ads couldn't have! Then why is he laughing? I scream and bolt away into the kitchens. I scare a couple cooks.

    Suddenly, I feel my Ada's strong hand on my shoulder. He picks me up and cuddles me under his chin.
