tuxedo_elf: (Winter Orophin)
Title: A Sting in the Tale
Author: Tuxedo Elf
Rating: G
Characters: Gildor, Orophin
Summary: Gildor does Orophin a favour.
Series: Wandering Home

Orophin looked around, searching for an escape route, but there was none. He was backed up against a tree, with no way out. How had such a vile creature made its way into the sanctuary of Lothlórien? Orophin did not have the answer, but he certainly wished to remedy the situation as soon as possible.

It drew closer and Orophin looked around for a weapon to use. Unfortunately he could not see anything that would be useful.

He swore quietly, assessing his options as the dreadful thing got nearer. Was running an option? He did not know how fast they moved; it might make matters worse.

Just as he was starting to wonder if there was only one conclusion to this grim affair, his prayers were answered. With a resounding ‘thwap’ his foe went down, twitching on the grass for a moment before going still.

Breathing a deep sigh of relief, Orophin looked up at his saviour, only for his elation to fade in the wake of Gildor’s grin. “Oh… it is you.”

“Is that how they show gratitude in Lothlórien?” Gildor replied dryly. “What an unusual technique.” He sauntered closer to Orophin, looking at him expectantly.

Orophin grew defensive. “It would not have killed me,” he insisted. “Given time, I would have extricated myself from the situation.”

“Of course you would have,” Gildor said sweetly, his voice taking on a distinctly patronising tone. “You are a great warrior after all, I should not doubt you.”

“You should not,” Orophin agreed, ignoring the sarcastic way in which the words were delivered. “I am perfectly capable of looking after myself.” He was not about to admit defeat, certainly not to this most irritating Elf.

Gildor nodded slowly. “So I saw. Well then, seeing as you are in no further danger, I will take my leave. Good day, Captain.” He walked a few steps before turning and facing Orophin once more. “And by the way, the words you wanted were ‘thank you.’ Do try to remember them.” Tucking the rolled-up parchment under his arm, he walked away from the annoyed Galadhel.

Orophin’s fists clenched and unclenched as he tried to calm himself and soothe his bruised ego. Of all the Elves who could have helped him, why that one? Trying to calm himself did not help and, in a fit of rage, he stomped viciously on the already-dead wasp before storming off and heading to the borders, in the hope of finding some Orcs on which to vent his frustrations.

I was wondering what it was that Orophin was trying to escape from - I had to laugh that it was a wasp! And methinks he's letting Gildor get under his skin more than he'd like to admit... I hope there's more about these two!

LOL! Love it. Those two are going to be great together if they ever stop trying to outdo one another.

Oh, dear! I did so love this! These two have that underlying tension that makes you wonder if their dislike is hiding a completely different emotion?

I completely get Orophin's unease; Gildor has the moral high-ground. Poor Orophin!
