Strange Love-Chapter Two: Newcomer

Legolas wrapped himself in his cloak and laid down on the soft grass. He was very happy now that he was reunited with all his friends. They comforted him when no one else would. He slowly closed his eyes and drifted off into a deep sleep.

Crystal, who was covered in Aragorn's cloak and lying on a large rock, saw him go to sleep. Legolas was sleeping all by himself and she felt bad for him. Slowly, she got up, walked over to Legolas, and laid down beside him. She snuggled close to him and smiled as she went to sleep. Legolas felt this and woke up and looked at her sweet face facing him. He smiled and sighed.

"Angel," he said, pushing a strand of hair behind her ear. "Such an angel. Aragorn and Arwen should be proud."

He put his arm around her, careful not to wake her. Then, he slowly laid his head back down on the soft grass and went to sleep, smiling.
"Aragorn," said Arwen with a smile, "look to our daughter."

Aragorn, who had just gotten up, looked over at a sleeping Crystal beside Legolas. He noticed that both of them were smiling. This brought a smile to his face.

"She really loves Legolas. And he needs a friend now. He's been so lonely for a thousand years. Crystal, of course, shows everyone love and respect."

"Indeed she does, my love. Our daughter has a kind heart."
"Ready, Legolas and Gimli?" asked Frodo.

Legolas nodded. "I'm ready if the Dwarf is."

"I'm ready, lad," replied the Dwarf.

"GO!!!" yelled Frodo, smiling.

Legolas shot off across the fields like lighting. He'd always been the fastest runner, but Gimli was determined to stop that.

Legolas looked back at Gimli with a cocky smile on his face.

"Come now, Gimli," teased Legolas. "Just a few more feet. You can do it."

"Very funny, Elf boy!" yelled Gimli, who was a few feet behind Legolas.

Sam was standing by a rock on the other side of the hill that Legolas and Gimli were running on. That was the finish.

Sam raised his cloak and as soon as Legolas passed the rock, he threw it to the ground and yelled: "Legolas wins!"

It wasn't long before Gimli ran past the rock and stopped in front of Legolas, panting and sweating. The Elf, however, did not have any sweat running down his face.

"I saw the race," said a young woman. "Very impressive."

Legolas turned around to see a young, female human with long, silky, blonde hair and deep blue eyes staring back at him. She looked somewhat like a female version of Legolas. She was beautiful and ladylike, to the elven eyes of Legolas, that is.

"My name is Rayne," she said.

"A pleasure, Lady Rayne," said Legolas, taking a bow. "Would you care to join us?"

She smiled. "Yes, of course."

Legolas extended his hand to her and she took it. Both of them walked back to join the others.

"What is your name?" she asked Legolas.

"My name is Legolas Greenleaf. I am the Crown Prince of a land called Mirkwood. Are you the heir to any throne?"

She giggled. "Do I look it?"

He had to be honest. "Yes," he said.

She giggled again. "No, I'm not. I roam Middle-earth since I have nowhere to go."

"You are much like a friend of mine. His name is Gandalf. I shall introduce you to everyone when we get to them. It's a pleasure to meet you, my lady."

"You too, kind prince. I look forward to meeting your friends as well."
