Russell sat on the sofa, acoustic guitar in his hands, notebook and pencils lying in front of him. He made notes in the book, snippets of lyrics, chords, and then played a little, fitting the two together, making more notes. He played softly, not wanting to disturb Beregond who was still crashed out in the bedroom next door, the last few weeks having finally caught up with him.

Russell lost himself in the familiar process of song-writing for a while, so much so that a knock on the door had a pencil flying across the room as he jumped at the sound. Not expecting anyone, maybe it was Rob, he thought on his way to answer it.

*muttering to himself* sister needs this, she needs all the friends she can get.

*Elrohir stood outside the door, where the person he needed to talk to was inside. Finally, he knocked on the door, and waited to be let in*

Russell pulls the door wide open, expecting to see Rob. He is greeted by the sight of a striking dark-haired elf, who bears more than a passing resemblance to Arwen. He tries to remember the Elvish Martha taught him

"Ah ... mae govannen." He smiles assuming that this is one of Arwen's brothers, and wonders why he is here. Either he objects to Russell's involvement with his sister, and is going to beat the crap out of him, or something is wrong with Arwen. He actually hopes it's the former.

"Come in, please." He leads the elf through, and motions for him to sit. "Is Arwen okay?"

Mae govannen, I am Elrohir, one of Arwen's brothers.

*sits down on a chair* Um...Russell, you may want to sit down for what I have to tell you.

Russell pales as he sits down on the sofa next to Elrohir.

"Is she alright?" He asks quietly.

Yes, and no... I do not know how much you know about recent events involving my sister, but she was influenced by the one ring and became something not very pleasant. Recently, some friends and I were able to help save her, but she needs friends now, people that still love her and care about her, to help her heal from this event.

"I haven't seen her since she returned to Minas Tirith."

Then he realises what Elrohir has just said.

"The One Ring?" Russell can't quite take it in. "What ... what did she become?"

He remembers the last time she was here, and how unsure she had felt about returning. "I should have gone with her!"

*sighs deeply* She became a wraith, the Witch Queen to the ring. But that is now over, and she is not longer under its influences.

Please, do not regret what you could not control. Everything happens for a reason. Now we just need to look past what we could not do and see what we can do here and now.

Russell closes his eyes for a minute, sighing.

"A wraith!" He shakes his head.

"Where is she now? Can I see her?"

He wants to see with his own eyes that she is alright.

She is staying with Buffy for a while. You may find her there. If you would like, we can go there whenever you are ready. *smiles*

*places his hand on Russell's* I understand your need to know if she is alright. Just be a good friend to her. That is what she needs the most.

"Yeah, thanks."

He didn't realise how much his hand was shaking until Elrohir touched it. He nodded.

"Okay, I'll just go check on ... I'll just be a minute, and we can go."

He stuck his head round the bedroom door, checking that Beregond was still out, and grabbed his jacket.

Russell, your lover will be fine without you for a while.

*stands up and holds out a hand for Russell* Now lets go see my sister.

Russell actually blushed at Elrohir's words, and took his hand without question.

"Okay, lets go!"
