The Choice

by Soledad


Rating: General

Summary: Lálisin, Queen of Mirkwood, makes a hard choice to escape from the tortures of Dol Guldur. Companion piece to “Chosen”. 105 words.

Author’s note: Written for the 100-Drabbles-challenge of Edhellond.
It is established in my stories that certain Avari women have special powers over the forces of nature and can stop their heart by sheer willpower. For more background stuff, see my story “The Prisoner of Dol Guldur”.

She had been in this rotten dungeon for days uncounted. She could not know how long; down here, there was no day, no night, just darkness and pain.

And the pain was intense. She knew she could not withstand it much longer. Soon, she would break under the torture and all her secrets laid open. Then, the Dark One would be able to use her powers for his own evil agendas.

She could not allow that. She could not let him gain power over soil, water, wind and trees.

In her heart, she said farewell to her loved ones and stepped out of this world.
