A Father's Wrath

Shaking my brother and I made our way slowly up to the large gates of the Mirkwood realm.

Really it hardly seemed fair that we should be subjected, by our own father none the less, to the horrific, absolutely terrifying task of informing the king of his son's rash decision to join none other then the fellowship of the ring. Who just happened to be on there way to the one and only Mordor.

Sure we may have added a little bit of green dye to his shampoo and sure maybe it was at the time when Rivendell was hosting a important meeting with the other realms at the time, but really it surely was not so bad as to receive a punishment such as this.

"Daro"! Yelled down a guard at the gates, "What business do you have here"?

"We request a meeting with your king regarding his son Legolas".

With that the gate swung open and we were met by Daeron, Thranduil's captain of the Mirkwood army and close friend to the royal family.

"Well, well, well what has our prince gotten himself into this time! He asked with a wide grin. "I swear that elf manages to find himself in trouble wherever he goes"!

It was very true that our good friend Legolas had the uncanny ability to run into orcs or some kind of danger even in his own backyard, and it was a miracle if he came back from a trip without injury.

Still however, so very terrified of what was to come, my brother and I merely nodded our heads in a agreement.

Laughing at out horrified expressions Daeron motioned for us to follow him.

"Come I am sure that the king cannot wait to hear what you have to say"!

Walking up to the palace entrance I felt all eyes on us.

I could see numerous elves all around whispering and betting on just how long we would last.

It extremely was well known how protective and loving the king was of his son Legolas and to say he would not take this well was a huge understatement.

"Elrohir, if we don't make it out of this just know that I will forever cherish our pranks and time together, I could not have asked for a better twin".

"Aye, same to you".

Listen to us it sounded as though we were walking up to the gate of Mordor, which I actually would have preferred at this moment in time.

Entering the palace through the large stone doors I felt very much trapped as the doors swung shut closing us in.

In an attempt to stall the inevitable Elrohir and tried anything and everything to delay our journey to the throne room.

However, Daeron was not easily tricked and did not fall for any of our desperate attempts.

Preparing to turn to the right as I had done many times before on my way to the throne room on past visits to see Legolas, I was surprised when we not only turned to the left but then continued up a flight of stairs.

"Are we not going to the throne room"? I questioned Daeron curiously.

"Nope, Thranduil requested that you met him in his study".

Visibly gulping I shared a nervous glance with my brother.

At least in the throne room there was a chance that some advisor or consoler would be there or come in with a message momentarily distracting the king and giving us a chance to escape.

It Legolas made it home alive I am personally going to kill him for putting us in this position!

Before we knew it the intricate wooden door of the kings study came into view.

Stepping up to the door Daeron knocked once before opening the door and motioning us inside.

Daro: Stop

Tiffany Thomson: This story is not something I would normally pick up and read but I'm so glad I did, I wasn't able to put it down and my husband was yelling at me at 3am to put it down and go to bed (just waited for him to doze back off before picking it back up) I really hope Natalie brings out another book eit...

MegaRogueLegend666: I love this story so much. It's impossible to describe my excitement with each new chapter in words. The author has such a good writing style, very good descriptions of the fighting and character descriptions/emotions. the plot is also amazing! This fanfic could be a side anime show or novel ......

cassandrab: Delightful SciFi (for a change)! I am not a SciFi fan: mostly the genre is far too dystopic for me. This book (written by a high-school friend) is, on the other hand, generally upbeat. Yes, Earth's future is threatened. But Earth has a chance to plan a response. And (spoiler alert) ultimately win...

faithashley2000: This is such an amazing story, very well thought out and the plot is perfect. I recommend everyone to read this. Although the readers are most likely going to be teen girls, due to the cheesynees and romance

Karl12: First of all, I really love the idea of going back in time in order to improve education and thus improve the very future. Jack and Jesse are very amusing characters and they seem to fit in and function very well together, despite the age difference. The story kept me attentive and interested. I ...

Kasey Pinney: This book had me from the beginning. I never came across a part I didn't want to read or that didn't entertain me. The characters are well developed and the internal conversations fit the book well.

MavisMcQueen: "To Live Again" is a well crafted, highly engaging, heart vibrating tale surrounding our favorite Elven King. The author will keep you engrossed until the very end and by that time you will feel so strongly for Clara and the other characters that you will never want it to end...like ever. Thrandu...

Elizabeth Krohn: I really enjoy the story but the Dursley's hate for Harry to just disappear is not very realistic and does seem to OC for me.

Rebeccaseal: This was an almost perfect story that I would recommend to anyone. The only thing I would work on is painting a more realistic picture of Haiathiel. Somehow the environment seemed limited, and the land itself a bit unfinished. This can be solved simply by added descriptions to people and places. ...

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story. It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real. Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

ianwatson: The comedy is original and genuinely funny, I have laughed out loud many times reading this book. But the story and the plot are also really engaging.
