Blessing, Part 1

by Rei hime

He's watching my son again. I wonder if he's even aware he does. Sitting so near, he's far from me and this conversation in a world where only the two of them exist -- a world he believes unattainable.

He jumps when I clear my throat. "Forgive me, you were saying, Master Glo--," I frown and he happily corrects himself, "Papa."

My son's beckoning distracts him anew. Turning as well, I see Legolas' longed-for world reflected in Gimli's eyes.

I wish they could see too, but all I may do is give my blessing.

"Well, go on. He's waiting for you."
