Teasing - Kili
Requested by anonymous (This is my first one for LOTR!)
You threw down the bundle of wood you had just collected near the fire that Gloin was working on. You sat down next to Fili, and looked at the fire.
“Find everything you were looking for?” Fili asked, nodding towards the trees where Kili was brushing off one of the horses.
“Funny,” you said, elbowing him in the arm. “But yes, I found all of the wood I was looking for,” you said, looking back down at the ground. You had fallen in love with Kili almost immediately after meeting him. How could you not? Kili was incredibly handsome, and kind, and brave. His smile could bring you out of any darkness you found yourself in, and being on this journey, there was a lot.
“In all seriousness, though. Have you told him how you feel yet?” Fili asked.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about,” you said, concentrating on your feet, hoping to keep your blush hidden.
“Y/N, I’m not blind and neither is he.”
“Fili-” you began before he cut you off.
“Tell him. Before it’s too late.” You sighed, knowing he was right.
“Don’t be so morbid, Fili,” you said, standing up and walking towards Kili. You stood in front of the horse and rubbed its nose. Kili looked up at you and smiled. He stood up and walked a little it closer to you.
“Hello,” he said, the cheeky grin still on his face.
“Hello,” you said, smiling bashfully, looking back at the pony.
“What can I do for you?”
“Nothing, really. Can’t a friend come over to talk?”
“A friend, of course. But for some reason I never really thought of you as a friend, Y/N.”
“Oh,” you said awkwardly. You tried to think of ways to escape or at least lighten the tension when Kili spoke again.
“Oh come on, I was just teasing, Y/N,” Kili said, touching your arm and smiling.
“Nice,” you laughed.
“So is there something you came over to tell me?” Kili asked, doing a little jump when he said “something”.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
“Of course you don’t,” Kili said, still smiling.
“Do you constantly have to smile?” you asked.
“Don’t act like you don’t love it,” Kili said, climbing on the horse.
“I never said I didn’t.” Kili held out his hand, and you took it, climbing on behind him.
“Are you ready?”
“Have a little trust in me. Besides, you’ll get to put your arms around me, so there’s an upside.”
“I hate you,” you said as Kili began to take off.
“No you don’t,” he said, touching your hand that was around his waist.
“Yes, I do.”
“Oh hush, look at the view,” he said, never letting go of your hand. You trotted along in silence for a little while until Kili stopped in the middle of the path.
“What?” you asked.
“I don’t know.”
“Where are we going?”
“I don’t know. I just thought you’d tell me… never mind.”
“Nothing, let’s just head back.”
“Kili what are you talking about?”
“Nothing. I’m not talking about anything,” Kili said with a slight smirk on his face.
“It’s just, I know you have a crush.”
“You what?” you asked, your hand dropping from his chest and your face beginning to pale.
“Yes and I think it’s time you told Bombur how you feel.” You laughed and pushed Kili a little bit. He grinned and looked back at you. You rolled your eyes and Kili smiled even bigger.
“Watch where you’re going,” you said, nodding your head to the front. Kili turned around and you continued your journey back in silence. When you arrived back at camp, Kili jumped down first and then helped you off. Fili stood up and walked towards the two of you with a grin on his face.
“Hello, Fili,” Kili said with a suspicious smile on his face. You nervously gulped and looked at the two of them. They were always joking and teasing, and you were never an exception to their pranking.
“Fili?” you asked with as much confidence as you could fake.
“It seems my brother’s braids have fallen out. Would you mind helping him?”
“I believe he is perfectly capable,” you replied, knowing what Fili was doing.
“Yeah, come on, Y/N,” Kili whined. “You have very skilled hands, and you know you’ve always wanted to run your hands through my hair.”
“Skilled hands, that’s very good, Kili,” Fili laughed.
“You both are repulsive,” you said, turning away and rushing away from the pair. You kept walking even though they both shouted for you to stop.
“Y/N, please stop,” Kili called, close to you.
“Leave me alone, Kili.”
“Y/N, please!” Kili pleaded a little more seriously.
“Why?” you asked, finally turning around. “So you can tease me some more? It’s obvious you know how I feel about you Kili, and I’m not going to embarrass myself anymore. So goodbye,” you said, turning around and almost falling.
Kili grabbed your hand and pulled you close to him, placing his hand over your mouth. You looked at him angrily and tried to get out of his grip until he nodded towards the group of giants passing feet from you. You gasped as best you could with Kili’s hand over your mouth and shrunk down to the ground with him. He removed his hand from your mouth and looked at you with concern and fear in his eyes.
“What do we do now?” you whispered.
“I love you,” he said, looking even more fearful than before.
“What?” you asked, your heart beating impossibly fast.
“I love you, Y/N,” he said, this time with much more confidence, as if he was reassuring himself of his feelings.
“Kili we could die!” you angrily whispered.
“I know that’s why I need to tell you. See it’s not that hard to share your feelings with someone,” he said, a gleam in his eyes and tat same intoxicating smile on his face.
“Shh!” you said, pulling Kili close to you as one of the giants stood up and looked around.. “We need to get out of here,” you said, looking around for an exit.
”Not until you tell me you love me too.”
“Y/N, tell me,” he pleaded, looking at you with his big brown eyes. “Before it’s too late.”
“I love you, too” you whispered. Kili smiled bigger than he had ever done before and place his hand on the back of your head.
“Took you long enough,” he said happily before kissing you passionately. You could of melted into Kili’s strong arms, and the taste of him was enough to make you lightheaded, but you needed to get away from the giants before you could enjoy his sweet intoxication.
“We have to get out of here,” you said, finally breaking away before taking his hand. You lead the two of you out of there in silence. When you were finally out of earshot of the giants Kili spoke again.
“Just remind me that we have unfinished business when we get back to camp, my love,” Kili said, causing you to break out into a huge smile.
