Lord of the Rings - Hidden Blood

The One Ring has to be destroyed. And I, Vanya Halda Serke, daughter of Arathorn, travel with the fellowship of the ring. Gandalf the Grey, Aragon Isildurs heir, Legolas prince of the Woodland Realm, Gimli, son of my old friend Gloin and four little hobbits; Frodo the ringbearer and Sam, Pippin and Merry. Together we travel towards Mordor, where the ring can be destroyed. But it is not a safe journey, and danger awaits us...


7. Rivendell, The Last Homely House East of the Sea

It could have been worse. I was given a horse, a bag with food and water, and then I was ready to go.

“At least you did not linger.”

Thranduil remarked. I choose not to answer. I was free of him now.

“Leave. Go to live with the humans, if that is what you want.”

He said, actually smiling, but only because I was leaving.

“Never return, Vanya. Do not consider it even. Leave and do not come back.”

He said, returning to his kingdom. I nodded in agreement. Why would I ever return? I patted my horse, telling her we were reading to go.

“Come, Shadys.”

She responded, and we were on our way.

“We have a long journey ahead of us.”

I told her, enjoying the feel of the air on my skin. I had not been outside since being brought here. I was not allowed to.

But here I was, on my way. I already knew were to go. I would travel to the house of Elrond. Perhaps Lord Elrond would help, tell me where I could go, perhaps even grant me access to the undying lands. I was not sure I could go, behind part human.

It was a bit of a longshot. It would be easier just living with humans; surely I could act like one. I had my bow, a sword and some knives and I knew how to use them.  Despite not approving of me, Thranduil hated the thought of ignorance even more. So I was trained with various kinds of weapons. I learned to defend myself, and how to survive on my one. I had studied thousands of maps of middle earth and the realms within it. I knew which plants were poisons, no matter what you did to them. Which you could cook, so they were not anymore and which you could eat just like that.

I was well prepared for this trip I realized.

Not that I needed it. It was quite an uneventful travel. I travelled during the day, made camp for the night and moved on the next morning.  Fresh water was easy to find, and I still had some food left in my bag.

Surviving of the nature was quite easy. I could just live here, on my one. But no, I had a right to ask for access to the undying lands. Despite not being pure, I had still received the blessing of the elves. I would live forever, should nothing harm me.

Arriving in Rivendell was a bit strange. I knew no one there, only of name. After arriving, I was greeted welcome. I explained I needed to speak to Lord Elrond, but nothing more. As he was busy, he could not speak to me now. I was offered a room to stay in, as I waited for Lord Elrond. It was quite comfy, but the thought of talking with Lord Elrond kept me from enjoying it.

So I decided to leave the room for a little walk, surely that could not cause me any trouble.
