B2MeM Prompt 18: Through the Window  
Double drabble, Elrond and Elros, G.

Ladder

I groaned and rolled over in bed, glaring at the square of light shining on the wall. Elros had been far too rambunctious last night, and it had taken me forever to fall asleep. Now, he was up too early and I had the room to myself, though that meant little when I knew I would not be permitted to sleep in. I rolled over, looked out the windows, and sat up in shock to see him looking in. By the Valar, how had he gotten a ladder?

I stood up and walked over to the window, opening it so I could drag him inside.

He grinned. “Happy birthday, Elrond.”

I smiled at him and said, “Happy birthday yourself, Elros. You’d better get inside before Second Father finds you.”

The grin remained firmly in place. “Who do you think is holding the ladder?”

I blinked and stuck my head out the window. Sure enough, the black-haired Noldo was holding it steady. I shook my head and drew back inside. “I’ll meet you downstairs.”

I shut the window and grabbed a tunic and trousers from my dresser. Out of all the things to happen today, I hadn’t expected that.

Aww. This is so sweet. What a nice birthday surprise for Elrond and how very fatherly of Maglor to do this. ;-)

*grins* Thank you! It's nice to write things like this occasionally rather than the darker things.
