At Last, Relief

Elrond had received him kindly and bade him sit while Boromir related the reason for his long journey.  His extreme weariness no doubt showed upon his face, but Boromir had felt obligated to stand while he spoke of the dream and his quest to seek out hidden Rivendell and the Elven lord Elrond.

As he was shown the room that Elrond had ordered prepared for him, Boromir saw a hearty meal laid out on a small table, next to a soft bed piled high with blankets and pillows.  But it was the large pan of steaming hot water set next to a chair that brought a long, grateful sigh to Boromir's lips.  Elrond had known, in spite of Boromir's determination to stand before him without flinching, that the traveler wanted nothing more than to get his boots off as quickly as possible and bathe his aching feet.  At last, relief!

And once more we see why the hospitality of Rivendell was so famous!

I love Boromir's reaction to Elrond's kindness.

Oh, the perfect welcome! I am so pleased Elrond saw the heart of Boromir's personal discomfort!

Very perceptive of Elrond!
Yes, I can see Boromir feeling he owed it to the dignity of his message to ignore his discomfort.

Thank you! I meant to do that but got behind in adding things to the archive. I'll have a look and make sure all is well.

You're welcome and no worries! We're trying to get back into the habit of cross-posting the challenge stories each month to the archive; it took me a few minutes this morning to do them all and that meant that I got the read then all too. So it wasn't a chore at all! :)

Feels good for all of us feeling the chill of the weather at the moment. Very nice!
