Thy Heart Shall Then Rest In The a Forest No More (alowlysilvanelf)
"I believe we will all miss it…" Tauriel answered softly, placing a gentle hand on Legolas’ arm. "But at least we will still have each other," she added, giving him a small smile. She nodded slowly as she listened to him speak of his father. It was only natural that he would miss him. "I miss him already as well," she admitted, glancing occasionally back towards the children to be sure they were alright.
Lifting her hand and bringing it to rest on her husband’s cheek, Tauriel rose up onto her toes to press a gentle kiss to his lips, hoping to offer him some sort of comfort. “One day he will join us,” she said quietly, not sure whether she was trying to convince herself or him. Perhaps both of them, she supposed. “We will see him again.”
"We will always have each other and for that I am grateful," he said softly, placing his hand on top of hers and giving it a gentle squeeze despite the sad smile on his face. No doubt he would his father a great deal and he would always yearn for him to come and join them in Valinor where they could live a peaceful life together and be a family once more.
"I pray that you are right. But I also know that he will not abandon our people. He will be the last to leave, and I fear for what his wellbeing may be in that case," he mused, returning the light kiss and nodding slowly.
