B2MeM Prompt 29: Falsely Accused  
Ficlet; Elrond, Elros, Maglor; PG.

It's a continuation of Prompt 22:


“Go to your room, Elrond.”

“But I--”


I looked at Maglor, tears of fury stinging my eyes, before turning and stomping upstairs. I hadn’t done it! But Elros… Oh, no, Elros had proof that he hadn’t climbed up the chimney. I slammed the door shut and flung myself on my bed. And Second Father hadn’t listened to me.

An hour or so later, Elros slipped into the room with a wicked grin on his face. “Told you you should have climbed it.”

I threw myself at him, catching him in the stomach. Stupid Elros, so cocky, so sure he was right. It was his fault, his lies that put me in so much trouble. And he would pay.

He started hitting me back, trying to defend himself. But he couldn’t. I hit him square in the nose, causing blood to start dribbling. He screamed and hit me harder. But shortly after that, two arms grabbed me around the waist and lifted me off my brother, holding me in the air. I glared at Maedhros, who was helping my brother up and out of the room. Only after the door closed behind them did Maglor put me down, turning me to face him.

He bit out, “What happened?”

“Elros lied. He’s the one that climbed the chimney, and he came in here to gloat that he got me in trouble because I refused to do so.”

Maglor sighed. “And this was cause to bloody his nose?”

“He deserved it.”

“No, he didn’t. I’ll talk to him, Elrond, and see what he truly did. You stay here-- if I unjustly punished you before, you deserve it now.”

I nodded, knowing better than to argue given his stern expression. He left the room, closing the door firmly behind him. I sat down on my windowseat, curled up, and leaned against the frame. A tear ran down my face. Elros had to confess. He just had to.

Oh poor little kidlets, but well M&M are the experts in the resolution of brotherly fist-fighting activities so not to worry. ;-)

They'd have to be!

Glad you liked it. :)

This was such a 'boy' way for them to settle the dispute - and I'd imagine Maedhros and Maglor have more than a little experience with brotherly disputes.

Glad you liked how it was settled. And with five younger brothers, I think they'd have more experiance than the rest of Valinor combined!
