Eowyn untied his leather belt, unbuckled it, and
let the ends drop to the ground, ran her hands up the soft suede
of his close-fitting jerkinDo you remember the first
time you spoke to me?and unhooked the fastenings,
one by one.
Lying on his back, his pale golden hair spreading out across
the fur blanket, Legolas smiled up at her. Of course
We were standing on the wall-walk, outside the Golden Hall,
and you said, Take care, my lady, you stand too near the
edge. And you took my arm and drew me back. She unfastened
Not my most impressive attempt at seduction, said
Eowyn laughed. I did not know then how typical it was of
youalways there, when anyone strays into danger
She pulled aside the silvery fabric and, leaning down to him,
kissed his warm skin. I thought you were so remote, Lassuiso
ethereal. When I looked at you
You never looked at me, said Legolas. Your
eyes were fixed on Aragornthat is why you nearly fell twenty
feet and broke your neck.
Eowyn came up on her knees.
I did look at you, my love, she insisted,
but you seemed so far above the rest of us
above me. I never dreamed,she had pulled open
his lacings, and now she peeled back the flap of his leggingsoh,
Lassui!and fell upon him, devouring his hard flesh
Valar! he gasped, catching two handfuls of her hair.
Mmmmmmm. She released him and, raising her head,
grinned up at him. I could not imagine you doing anything
like this, Lassui. I had no idea what elves were like.
She brushed her lips over the head of his erection. What
this elf was like
Let me, Eowyn nín. He stroked her hair,
and she let him take hold of her, and lay her on her back, and
settle himself over her. This morning I might have lost
you, he said, kissing her tenderly, so let me
make love to you
Her smile was the only reply he needed.
Without taking his eyes from her face, he parted the skirts of
her velvet riding gown, unlaced her leggings, and, with her help,
pulled them down.
She shifted her hips invitingly, her smile broadening with anticipation.
Impatient Shieldmaiden. He kissed the tip of her
nose. Always so impatient. When I fell in love with
youthat day, in the Golden HallI had no idea
the white lady was such a wanton
And, sure enough,
he felt her little hand push between them and, finding him, curl
itself around him. And he closed his eyes, breathing a long sigh
of pleasure. No idea at all
Take me, Lassui, whispered Eowyn. Take me.
He shifted his weight onto his arms. Guide me, meleth nín.
She drew him close and, the moment he felt her wetness, he entered
her with a single, smooth thrustSweet Eru!and
he shuddered, fordespite his size and their often vigorous
lovemakingher body still held him tightly. But, frowning
with concentration, he took a few deep breaths, then lowered himself
and buried his face in the crook of her shoulder. I did
know, even then, he whispered, that you would be mine
some day. You had to be mine, melmenya
he rocked his hips
Eowyn wrapped her legs
around his waist. You are so
her fingers dug into his backoh,
Lassui, you are so
He rose up on his hands and ground harder, pressing himself into
her most sensitive flesh.
OH! Her hands flew to the fur rug beneath
her, and she clutched at it and, confined as she was, moved her
hips, desperately trying to ride him, until, at last, he reared
up and began to thrust in earnest, withdrawing almost fully andknowing
how much she liked itdriving in hard, ending each stroke
with an extra push.
Shhhhh. He covered her mouth with his hand.
Make it last, she moaned, against his fingers, like
please make it last
It did not last.
But it did not matter. Contented, she curled up in his arms.
And Legolas, after a brief but heartfelt prayer of thanks to
the Valar, closed his eyeslike his human loveand let
himself drift off into reverie.
