A Sweet Life – The Council

by Dec 18, 2002Stories

“My Lady? Are you alright?”

“Hmm… oh yes I am fine.”

Dougless sat and stared out the beautiful wind of Rivendell. Her red curly hair fell down over her shoulders, her Lady of the Chamber stood behind her with a white dress in her arms.

“My Lady we must get to the Council!” Horonria said with the sound of ergent in her voice.

Dougless stood and stared at Horonia “Yes, we must be going.”

Horonia dressed Dougless in the white gown. First was the under silk of the dress, then the white clock came over Dougless’s head. Horonia then added a gold diamond clasping belt around her waist. Then came the diamond necklace with matching earrings.

“I do love of your beauty my lady.”

“Hmm… thank you Horonia.”

Dougless walked fast over to where the secret council was held. She came in and notices she was surrounded by all men.

“Ah Lady Dougless. So nice of you to join us.” said by Lord Elrond.

“Hmm… yes I am thankful to be here.” Dougless said with wear in her voice.

“Are you alright my Lady?” said a small tiny voice from behind her.

Dougless turned around and notices who was behind her, “Oh! You must be the young hobbit I have heard of, Frodo am I right?”

“Yes, my name is Frodo my Lady.”

“Oh call me Dougless, I hate that title.”

“Alright my La… I mean Dougless.”

Dougless smiled and walked over to her seat and sat down. She sat in between a blonde hair elf and a dark grey beard of a dwarf.

Lord Elrond was talking, but Dougless was day dreaming of something terrilble she had no idea what was to come, and she knew she was apart of. Next thing she knew everyone was up and screaming at each other. Dougless was now realizing it.

“I’ll take it! I’ll take it!” said the tiny voice of Frodo.

Dougless got up and shushed everyone. “The hobbit is talking, go ahead talk Frodo.”

“I’ll take the ring to Mordor though…. I do not know the way.”

“I’ll shall go with you.” said Gandalf.

Aragorn got up “You may have my sword.”

Legolas shot up “You may have my bow.”

“And my axe.” Gimli the dawrf shouted and got up next to the elf.

“I know this is not a quest of a Lady, but I have this strange feeling that I maybe needed. So my dear Frodo I shall join you also.” said Dougless with strong emotions.

“You are welcome to join us.” said Frodo.

“You carry the heart of us all little one, if this is the will of the council then Gondor will see it through.” said Boromir.

“Then you shall be-” Lord Elrond was interupted.

“Hey what about me?” came a voice from behind the bush.

“Hey what about us?” these two voices came behind the two great pillars.

“Merry! Pippin! Sam! Alright if this is the willing of the Ringbearer than all three of you shall be invited.” with that Lord Elrond looked at Frodo.

Frodo stood and thought for a few seconds “Alright they can come.”

Merry, Pippin, and Sam stood with Legolas, Gimli, Aragorn, Gandalf, Dougless, and Frodo.

“Hmm.. then you shall be the Fellowship of the Ring.” said Lord Elrond.

With those words Dougless knew what she got into something very dangerous. In the back of her mind she knew she had to help some way.
