Discovering Love
Lilith Wydenbrooke -- Romance -- Posted: 10/07/2009 -- Updated: 26/09/2012
Lori Starrett sang a happy tune as she melodically drifted down the corridors of HQ in a long forest green dress. Her sparkling auburn hair drifted in the wind and her voice was like the trilling of a thousand nightingales. Her skin was as pale as porcelain and her eyes as green as the leafy halls of Mirkwood, home of her former lover, Legolas Thranduillion.
She sighed as she remembered her former love, who had left her to go to the Grey Havens. In her sadness, a single, pearly tear slipped down her porcelain cheek . “Oh Legolas,” she sighed wistfully. “I will never love another ever again.”
(Author’s Note: Just pretend she never met Bill Fallis.)
Lori had been recruited by the PPC for her skills as a healer but instead of working at Medical she preferred to spend her days in the everwhite labs of the Department of Mary Sue Experiments and Research. There she was an excellent scientist, discovering many things about Mary Sues and adding to the PPC’s knowledge about them. She would have been the new Lab Director or even Department Head, but she modestly turned down the offer. But now as she walked the halls, she suddenly collided with someone.
“Ouch!” an equally melodius tone exclaimed.
“Who are you?” Lori queried.
“Eledhwen Elerossiel,” the elleth replied. She had dark hair as mysterious as midnight and grey eyes like those of Legolas. “Who are you?”
“Lori Starrett.”
Eledhwen smiled. “The best scientist in HQ?”
“I don’t know.”
“You are. That’s what everyone says. And I think I’ve had quite a crush on you ever since you were recruited.”
The tears welled up. “But I cannot love another! My heart has been given to Legolas of Mirkwood, and he hath forsaken me. I shall spend the rest of my life grieving for my lost love.”
Eledhwen looked at her sadly. “My lady, my heart doth grieve for you.” She reached out and took Lori’s hand. “But I have loved you, too. Try. Try to love someone else.”
Lori bowed her head, saying nothing but feeling much.
