Imagine Thranduil taking a walk in the forest when it was still healthy and coming across you, singing a beautiful song to the trees and creatures.
She held massive amounts of love in her heart and she would often spend days alone in the forest, trying to heal it from the dark magic that may upon it.
She would take books and read fairy stories to the trees and the creatures. I had often insisted in accompanying her for protections sake but she would always refuse.
I would sometimes hear faint whisps of her beautiful singing voice as she sang to the forest creatures.
But this time, she had left the woods behind her completely and all I could do was wait for her safe return.
What felt like an eternity passed before I heard the familiar hoofsteps of her horse.
I ran to the gates as swiftly as I could.
To my joy and happiness there she was. Not a day older than when she had left.
I looked her straight in the eye and she smiled a smile that looked powerful enough to banish all darkness from Middle Earth.
She waited until we were sufficiently alone before she ran into my arms.
We knew we could never be public
“ The forest! It spoke to me, my King! It told me of the times you spend there. Talking to the trees like I do. They told me.. And I hope I’m not being improper but… they told me.. that you have feelings regarding me. ” she blushed as she stood in my arms which were still tightly wrapped around her.
“ It is true, my fair lady. I also have something to tell you. Come. ” I said, leading her to my chambers where my specially crafted token lay in my bedside cabinet.
I offered her to sit on my bed whilst I produced the blue box containing her gift.
She sat and ran her fingers along the intricate carving of my bed posts.
I held the box in hand and cleared my throat.
She turned around and smiled up at me from her seat.
I knelt before her and opened the box.
It contained a white diamond moon on a golden chain with a white crystal brooch.
“ These are for you. A token of my love for you. ” I said slowly.
She gasped quietly and beheld my courtship gift to her.
I gently swept her hair over her shoulder so I could clasp the necklace around her neck.
“ Do you like it? ” I asked.
“ I.. I.. Words are not enough, my dear. ” she said in a hushed voice as she tucked some loose hair behind my peaked ear.
She leaned forward so I might put the necklace on her.
When she leaned forward, she kissed my cheek, stirring my heart into a frenzy.
