The Maiden in the Tree

Summary: Young Oropher has his first glimpse of Nellas. 102 words.

Author’s note: In my stories, Nellas eventually married Oropher in Doriath, thus becoming Thranduil’s mother.


The sunlight glittered on something among the leaves. Something that seemed like pure gold. Oropher looked up, curious now, and saw that it was the hair of a maiden, ash blonde and gleaming like winter sunshine.

She must have been of the Nandor folk, dark-eyed, lovely and shy, living in a tree like the woodland maidens of old tales, who would let down their long hair, so that the youngling of their choice could climb up on it like on a rope.

He wondered, whether she would do so for him if he asked. But he dared not to ask – yet.
