B2MeM Prompt 22: Principles of the Law  
125 words, Elrond and Elros, G.


“You told me you would.”

Elros screwed up his face, threatening to cry. But he hadn’t done that in years, and I knew he wouldn’t do it now. He didn’t want Second Father coming outside.

“I changed my mind. It’s too dangerous.”

He snorted, “I did it. You can do it, too.”

“I am not climbing the fireplace. The roof is not a safe place.”

He shook his head. “Coward.”

He turned and walked away, heading over to the chimney. I watched him scramble upwards, fear fighting with anger. I wasn’t a coward; I just knew better.

So why had I agreed in the first place? Because he was my brother and I loved him. But it hurt when he called me something I wasn’t.

Uh-oh the cuties are up to something. Wonder how Second Father will react. ;-)

*grins* Of course they are-- or at least Elros is!

Uh-oh, they're up to something - and this is another nice illustration of their different personalities!

Elros is! And thank you.

Again, brilliant...the division to come already very much apparent. I like!

Thank you! Their division had to be caused by lifelong differences-- their choice wasn't made on a whim.

Ah, Elrond! And where is the greater courage better expressed than in saying "no" to what ought not to be done to begin with? Nicely done!

Saying no is often much harder than saying yes, especially when it comes to siblings.

Thank you!
