This double drabble is part of the Meleth Arc.

Naledi wanted Lord of the Rings, and Legolas! Merry Christmas!

Legolas shivered in his nightclothes. He couldn’t remember how he had left the castle. He couldn’t have passed through the gates, could he? He was too little to leave the castle alone.

“I swear that he was asleep, Mama!”

That was Eithelas.

“You shouldn’t have told him those stories about Balrogs,” Belegorn said.

“It wasn’t I who told him about the secret passage.”

“I told you about it, Eithelas. I didn’t know Legolas was hidden under your bed.”

“Silence you too! We will talk about that passage later.”

“Yes, Papa.”

Legolas caught his breath. Papa was angry.

“Legolas?” Mama sounded scared, so Legolas came out from behind the tree.



He was in his Mama’s arms, and Papa didn’t seem to be angry anymore. Belegorn and Eithelas looked guilty. Legolas was relieved they had found him.

“Do you remember leaving the castle?” his Papa asked once Legolas was back in bed.


“Where you dreaming?” his Mama asked.

Legolas nodded. “Yes…”

“About Balrogs?” Eithelas asked.

“Not again, Eithelas!”

Legolas wanted to tell them about the beautiful lady who lived in a tree, but the memory was escaping his mind. He yawned softly, clutched his stuffed bear and fell asleep.
