Song: After You Came
Performed by: The Moody Blues
Gimli glared at the rain falling outside the gates of Aglarond. He hated that rain.
There used to be a time when Legolas could ignore the sound of water rushing and the smell of damp earth, but after so many years he couldn’t resist. The sea longing had sunk its hooks in deep and dragged him out to wander in the rain. ‘Rain from the sea,’ he would say as he drifted out into the pouring rain.
Every time the rains came Gimli would wait for Legolas to return to their home and then would laugh and joke about him looking like some poor, half-drowned thing. It was either laugh, or break at this point, because Gimli had reached the top of his wall and was perilously close to tipping over it.
And so Gimli waited for Legolas to return back to the earth again, hating the rain, and hoping they would find a way through this.
