The Glittering Caves

For the tolkien_weekly "Season of Gifts: Gold, Silver, Gemstones" challenge.


“Not far now,” Gimli reassures, feeling the tension behind him in his friend’s shallow breathing. He knows the moment they step beyond the narrow tunnel, boots suddenly ringing in much greater space.

“There!” He holds the torch high; it gleams gold on Legolas’ hair, touches Gimli’s axe-head with silver, and…

sets a thousand thousand points of light dancing, across walls and ceiling of the great cavern; sparkling green and ruby and white from crystalline walls studded as if with gemstones. Legolas lets out a long, slow sigh.

“Yes… yes, you were right, Gimli. Such a sight is a great gift.”
