Summary: Elrohir travels to Mirkwood to learn more about the reclusive Silvan Elves. What he gets is a lesson in love, jealousy and heartache.

For Naledi Seren.

Winter had passed and the Misty Mountains were once again safe for travel. Elrohir had enjoyed his sojourn in the Woodland Realm, but now it was time to return home. As he loaded his packs onto his horse, he dwelled on the multitude of feelings running through him. He had missed Imladris, his family and more than anything, Elladan. One part of him could hardly wait to tell his twin about his time here and all that happened in the past months. The other part hated to leave because for all that Imladris had, it did not have Legolas.

They had talked at length about how to manage being so far apart. Neither had wanted to part ways, not after all they had been through. Although they knew it would not be easy, they had eventually decided to continue their relationship, sending letters and messages whenever possible and visiting when the opportunity arose. Elrohir was hopeful that the renewed bond between the two realms would allow more frequent visitation, though it was as yet too early to tell.

It was busy in the grassy courtyard that morning, as his party made ready to leave. Nor were they alone, many were accompanied by Mirkwood warriors they had befriended during their months there and Elrohir hoped that the friendships would be enduring. He was not the only one to find love either, two weeks previously one of his warriors had approached him and asked permission to bring a beautiful seamstress back to Imladris with him, so he could marry her there. Permission had been granted of course, though Elrohir had admitted to himself that he was envious of the Elf who could take his love with him. Such was the price of nobility loving nobility.

Warm arms about his waist drew him from his thought and he turned in the embrace to kiss his lover. “Mmm... I am going to miss this,” Elrohir chuckled. “I hope it is not too long until we meet again.”

“Oh, I do not think so.” Legolas grinned. “I can always claim I need to check up on Erestor.”

Elrohir chuckled and looked over to where the young Elf was sitting awkwardly on a placid mare. “He has never ridden before, or slept rough – I suspect he will be sore and irritable by the time we get back!”

“If he complains, just remind him it is a punishment!” Legolas pointed out good-naturedly. “And a learning experience.” He dipped his head, kissing Elrohir’s neck. “I will visit soon. I promise. I love you.”

“I love you too.” Elrohir indulged in one last, lingering kiss, before stepping reluctantly away. “Until we meet again.”

“Until then.” Legolas watched as Elrohir mounted his horse and rode slowly to the head of his group, the warriors all waiting for him to lead the way. His heart ached at the parting, but he knew it was not the end. What they had found was enduring, he was certain.

Elrohir cast one last, longing look back and then, with a deep breath, turned to Erestor. “Are you ready? It is time to go home.”

Oh what a wonderful story!

And Erestor causing all that trouble. I just hope he finds what he's looking for in Imladris.

Awww.. I really enjoyed this story. It's the first LOTR fanfic, or any fanfic really, that I've read in ages. And I loved it. :)
