And things were going oh so well there....



Stop right there! I gotta know right now!
Before we go any further, do you love me?
Would you love me forever, would you need me?
Would you never leave me?
Would you make me so happy for the rest of my life?
Would you take me away, would you make me your wife?

I gotta know right now! Before we go any further,
Do you love me? Will you love me forever???

Chapter Twenty-two

She was pretty damned sure he had lost his mind. She still didn’t have a clue what had made him go bolting over the side of the car to wander mindlessly back and forth mostly naked like that, mumbling something to himself that sounded like, ‘Many a vestal man,’ whatever THAT had to do with things. Then he’d started in with all that talk about binding. Why, she hadn’t even mentioned a commitment or anything; after all, it WAS just their first date.

She knew she was in trouble when she mentioned Gimli. But when he had the audacity to arrogantly demand she tell him her name, she seriously considered walking all the way back home. You’d think that, since he WAS royalty, surely someone in the kingdom would have seen to it that he at least had the manners to remember a girl’s name until the morning after.

Turning her dress back inside-out, she flung it over her head and jerked it down. Maybe she should start walking, at least to the farmhouse, the twin lights of which she could see twinkling there in the distance through the trees.

His sudden drop to his knees took her totally by surprise.

“Legolas? Legolas?” she’d called, scrambling over the side and rushing to him. “Are you okay? What in the world...?” She thought he’d fainted, or maybe been shot, since he dropped so quickly. She hadn’t heard anything though, didn’t see any blood--

She stopped there before him, the words that had been uttered from his lips hanging there in the starlight between them.

“What did you call me?” she asked.

“I wuld caell u ‘Meleth’,” he whispered, gazing up at her awestruck.


And that’s when it happened.

He suddenly jerked his head to the left, looking toward the road, his sharp eyes glued on something in the darkness, his body taut and still and totally on the alert. The awestruck look of the lovelorn Romeo was gone. This was the elven assassin, the deadly hunter.

“Git en da kaer,” he whispered.

Meleth: Love

"This was the elven assassin, the deadly hunter." And his elf eyes have spotted a rabbit and he is using it as a diversion to get her back in the car?

(I always knew he had it in him to be a bosy top.)

I don't think he'd need any diversions to get PP back into the car. All he'd have to do is blink at her one time.

(That's my boy! *wink*)

You think the adrenaline rush of almost blowing the whole thing to-hell-and-back finally pushed enough blood back up to his brain for him to restrategize?

(is that a word?)

Momentarily, anyway. I have to do my job, y'know. Keeping the Virginity is a big responsibility.
