Crimson Waters - Chapter 1

Legolas paced restlessly down the library's halls. He shouldn't feel this restless! He was in Valinor for Valar's sake! I guess it was all the action in the War he admitted grudgingly to himself and now every thing is calm and peaceful here. But I still shouldn't feel this way, I should be glad it's calm; what is wrong with me! He felt like he shouldn't be here that he had a job to fulfill somewhere else. But that's crazy! He abruptly turned around and paced restlessly back down the corridor. His eyes flicked to a book of prophecies lying open on a low table nearby. He saw the heading Crimson Waters. For some odd reason he paused and read the prophesy.

" Makes you shiver doesn't it" A voice came from behind him. Legolas jumped guiltily and spun around.

"L-L-Lord Celeborn" he stammered. Celeborn smiled at Legolas's discomfort. His smile faded and he became serious again as he looked down at the open book.

" Will it happen, ever? If it does we will be here for we cant die of anything other than a battle wound or a broken heart. I can't see us getting a battle wound here," he said looking around at the sunlight streaming through the windows and he smiled faintly, "nor a broken heart for we get that when someone dies and they could only die of a battle wound."

" But according to this many of us will die" Legolas said suddenly.

"Yes, that is true" Celeborn said and there was a hint of sadness in his voice.

"Lord Celeborn," An elf ran into the room. His golden hair was disheveled. Mud and blood streaked down his face. "Orcs.... Orcs...They attacked, yesterday, I'm the only one left alive; don't know how they got here, in Valinor..." he gasped out then he fell back in a dead faint. Legolas and Celeborn stared at him, astonished. Then Lord Celeborn whirled around and yelled, "Arm yourselves and go to where he patrols!" at the gathered crowd. He turned back to Legolas. He was standing there staring at the unconscious elf, shivering uncontrollably. "Legolas, what is wrong?" he asked concern in his voice.
" I know... I know..." he stammered. Celeborn stepped forward and looked into his face, now really concerned.
" You know what, Legolas?" he asked his concern obvious in his voice.
" Nothing.... Nothing...I'll get my bow...I'm going with them..." he turned around and ran off leaving Celeborn standing there his worried eyes following him.
