Nobody likes to be cooped up indoors for too long, and nobody likes to be watched too closely – even by good-intentioned people. An eight-year-old Estel living with his mother and foster father in Imladris has the same opinions, at least, and one afternoon his dream of visiting the Bruinen alone comes true…
Gildor wishes to rest awhile in the hidden valley from his wanderings, but his current visit to Elrond's abode is troubled by a missing certain young Adan…
What happens when they meet? Can Gildor's past, painstakingly hidden, stand the onslaught of a young, sharp, inquisitive mind?

For Teitho June 2011: "Father and Son."

Summary:
Nobody likes to be cooped up indoors for too long, and nobody likes to be watched too closely – even by good-intentioned people. An eight-year-old Estel living with his mother and foster father in Imladris has the same opinions, at least, and one afternoon his dream of visiting the Bruinen alone comes true…

Notes:
The story takes place at Rivendell. Aragorn (Estel) at that time is around 8 years old. And since the child practically grows up in a place speaking Sindarin (and Quenya, perhaps), the language spoken in this story is Sindarin, not Westron. And in the child’s point of view, “Nana” refers to Gilraen while “Ada” refers to Elrond.
And here’s also to celebrate the anniversary of my participation in this contest! Admitedly, it is a rather sparse participation, but oh well. And thank you very, very much for my beta-reader Elleth – without whom this story will never see the daylight!
