“Story time Frodo.”
Elanor settled her brother into the child-sized chair by the hearth. The lad clapped his chubby hands with glee.
Clearing her throat dramatically, Elanor began. “Once there were a great big Elf… a Talleri named Olwë.”
Her father suppressed a laugh, turning it into a cough.
“And Olwë lived in a beautiful smial made all of pretty pearls. Just like the ones in mam’s necklace.”
“Pretty!” Frodo enthused, legs kicking.
“And there were swans…”
Pausing to listen to the tale unfold in Elanor’s own unique style, Sam thought how much another Frodo would have enjoyed it.
…Olwë led the Teleri to Alqualondë where he was their ruler and lived in a mansion of pearl at the Haven of the Swans. ~ The Silmarillion, Index (from HASA Resources)
