Chapter 1 - Hounds and Hares by Erulisse

Hounds and Hares

 

 

Across the far bridge, Elrond explained the task to the twins. "You're the hounds. The hares will leave you a faint trail. Track and find."

 

Glorfindel gathered the warriors together. “You're the hares,” he said. “Each of you has a bag of acorns. Use them to make a faint trail for the boys to track. The object is to elude and hide from the two hounds until the dinner bell.”

 

“Challenge them,” he continued. “The skills they learn playing hounds and hares may one day save their lives.”

 

The elves scattered, dropping acorns as they began eluding the young hounds.
