Second Chances  by Larner

Cue 15:  "Do I dare disturb the universe?" from "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock," by T.S. Eliot

Betrayed!

Ash nazg durbatulūk, ash nazg gimbatul, ash nazg thrakatulūk agh burzum-ishi krimpatul!

            Celebrimbor sat frozen at his council table, the discussion cut off mid-word.  He saw, across from him, Galadriel’s eyes widen with shock, her cheeks bloodless.  She scrabbled at her hand.  He was doing the same, removing the Ring he wore even as she was doing.

            He must send the two remaining Elven Rings away.  He’d never finish the fourth, the proposed Ring of Earth he’d intended for his own use.

            Ereinion!  Gil-galad would see them properly bestowed, he knew.  He could not allow them to remain in Ost-in-Edhil, waiting for the Deceiver to snatch them away for his own purposes!

  Note:  the words of the Ring-spell are not counted as part of the drabble.
