Chapter 2

 

 

The next night, Lúthien Míriel stood in front of girls that she boarded. They were either snickered or whispered about Tári, a strange looking elf that resided with them. Lúthien cleared her throat loudly, announcing her presence.

“Ok girls, tonight you will meet your potential life match. Maybe you’ll find your mate in him. If you have any hopes of him bringing you home with you, that means behaving. None of your usual strutting around, or gossiping about others as if they can’t hear you,” she said. Immediately, the girls stopped whispering and fell silent. Lúthien raised an eyebrow. Apparently the girls thought she wouldn’t notice. She sighed.

“I have no patience for such disrespect. It is childish, and you aren’t children anymore,” she said. Lúthien new what the young elves were snickering about; Tári. They suspected that she could be only half an elf, due to her stature and hair colour. Lúthien knew for a fact that Tári wasn’t full elf. It takes a half-elf to spot one. Lúthien was half-human, so she had an easier time hiding. However Lúthien suspected that Tári was a forbidden half-breed, dwarf and elf. She knew that Tári’s life would be excruciating. She sighed to herself.

“Alright girls, let’s go,” Lúthien said.

Orophin leaned up against a tree, waiting for the ball to finish. Quiet flutes and harps were playing somewhere near the treetops. He could see the last of the elders trickle into the moonlit forest.

All of a sudden, trumpets announcing the young elf women sounded. Orophin’s head shot up. He saw a steady stream of young maidens with a strange looking elf at the end. He stared curiously at her; he had never seen an elf like her. When Orophin looked around, he saw most of the others staring at this strange looking elf. Suddenly, he heard Lúthien, the matron of the young elves speak:

“You now see these young women. Take your pick.”

Orophin found himself in front of the strange looking elf. He felt a strong connection with this girl. The girl looked at her feet.

“Hello,” she said shyly. Orophin tilted her face up.

“What’s your name?” he asked.

“Tári,” she said. Orophin smiled slightly. He didn’t want to look at the other girls; he had made up his mind.

“Looks like you’ve made a connection,” Lúthien’s voice came from behind him. Orophin turned towards her and smiled.
