A second chance at love – Chapter 3

“You said Lord Elron Wished to see me?” Asked Legolas.
“Yes, he is in his study.” Corna answered leaving.
“I shall she you shortly, but until then I want you to rest.” said Legolas kissing her cheek swiftly.
“Lissenen ar’ maska’lalaith tenna’ lye omentuva.” She said sweetly. (Sweet water and light laughter till next we meet)

“Lord Elrond, you wished to see me?” Asked Legolas walking into the study.
“Yes, I have out that Coio’s father lied, but your father stayed true. King Emoneu had promised Coio to Prince Seama of the mountain elves, but his plain was foiled. Her love for you was to strong, and she would not marry the elf her father chose. He had ordered those Orcs to kill her on her walk and dump her near here. He didn’t expect anyone to find her in time, you particularly, or for his daughter to have such a strong will.” Lord Elron finished.
“So that is why I saw a Lillyen Fall’s flag in the group that attacked me, I thought I was seeing things.” said Coio from the doorway.
“You are supposed to be resting.” Said Legolas softly, wrapping his arm around her waste.
“I was curious.” She said.
“Curiosity killed the cat.” said Lord Elrond
“Satisfaction brought her back.” She said laughing.
“Well, I’m glade you are satisfied. We don’t need you dieing on us.” Said Legolas hugging her tightly.
“You still need rest. You should stay in bed if you wish to join the council.” Said Lord Elron.
“Very well,” She said walking down the hall to return to Legolas’s room. She and Legolas slept most of the day away together. About 7:00 A.M. they began to stir.
“Quel kaima Melamin?” (Sleep well my love.) Legolas said sweetly in her ear.
“Very well, and you.” she said stretching.
“Never better.”
“Did you find when the council is taking place?” (Authors note: Had to change time)
“It is in an hour. Let us fine something to eat.” He said standing from the bed.
“Best ideas I’ve hear in a long time.”

One hour later

A council was gathered of men and elves and dwarves and Frodo.
“Strangers from distant lands, friends of old. You are summoned here to answer the threat of Mordor. Middle-earth stands on the brink of destruction. You will unite or you will fall. Each race is bound to this fate, this one doom. Bring forth the ring, Frodo.” Said Lord Elrond. Frodo stands up and puts the ring on the stand in the center of the council.
“So it is true,” Said Boromir.
“The doom of men,” Said another man
“It is a gift,” said Boromir standing up, “a gift to the foes of Mordor. Why not use this Ring? Long has my father, the Steward of Gondor, kept the forces of Mordor at bay? The blood of our people keeps your lands safe. Give Gondor the weapon of the enemy. Let us use it against him.”
“What happens,” said Coio calmly, “when you or who ever uses it falls under its spell, and the Ring is handed back to Sauron, plunging the world back into darkness?”
“She is right; its evil is to great for any of us to weld.” Said Aragorn.
“What would an elf maiden and a ranger know of this matter?
“Coio,” Legolas said pointing to his fiancée “is the princess of Lillyen Falls and she has just as much right as any of us. The man is no mere ranger. He is Aragorn, son of Arathorn. You owe him your allegiance.”
“Aragorn, This is Isildur’s heir?” said Boromir.
“And heir to the throne of Gondor,” Legolas finished.
“Sit down, Legolas.” said Aragorn.
“Gondor has no king, and Gondor needs no king.” Said Boromir.
“Coio and Aragorn are right. We cannot use it.” Said Gandalf.
“We have but one choice. The ring must be destroyed.” Said Lord Elrond.
“What are we waiting for?” yelled a dwarf. He picks up his axe and hits the Ring. The axe shatters in to 100 pieces. Then the dwarf was knocked to the ground.
“The ring cannot be destroyed, Gimli, son of Gloin, by any craft that we here possess.” said Lord Elrond; “it was made in the fires of Mount Doom. Only there can it be unmade. It must be taken deep into Mordor, and cast back into the fiery chasm from which it came. One of you must do this.” There was a silence.
“One does not simply walk into Mordor,” said Boromir; “its black gates are guarded by more than Orcs. There is evil there that does not sleep, and the great eye is ever watchful. It is a barren wasteland, riddled with fire, and ash and dust. The very air you breathe is a poisonous fume. Not with ten thousand men could you do this. It is folly.”
“Have you heard nothing that Lord Elrond has said,” yelled Legolas jumping to his feet “The Ring must be destroyed!”
“And I suppose you think you’re the one to do it?” said Gimli
“And what if we fail? What happens when Sauron takes back what is his?” said Boromir.
“I will be dead before I see the Ring in the hands of an elf! Never trust an elf!” The council dissolves into arguing.
“I will take it.” Yelled Frodo, the arguing continues. “I will take it! I will take the ring to Mordor. Though I do not know the way. ” The arguing stops.
“This is not a journey one should make alone,” said Coio stepping forward “for as long as I can weld a weapon I will protect you. You have my daggers.” She stood behind Frodo.
“I will help you bear this burden, Frodo Baggins, for as long as it is yours to bear.” Said Gandalf joining Coio.
“If by my life or my death I can protect you, I will.” said Aragorn kneeling in front of Frodo. “You have my sword.”
“And my bow,” said Legolas.
“And my axe,” said Gimli.
“You carry the fate of us all, little one,” said Boromir “but if this is truly the will of the council, Gondor will see it done.” He finished, joining the rest of the group.
“Here! Mr. Frodo is not going anywhere without me!” Sam takes his place beside Frodo.
“Indeed, it is hardly possible to separate the two of you, even when he is summoned to a secret council and you are not. Very well,” Said Lord Elrond.
At This point Merry and pippin barged in. “we’re going, too! You’d have to send us home tied up in a sack to keep us away.” said Merry
“Anyway, you need people of intelligence on this sort of mission, quest, and thing.”
“Well, that rules you out, Pip.” said Merry
“Ten companions, So be it. You shall be the Fellowship of the Ring.”
“Great, Now, where are we going?” Everyone looked at Pippin.
