Pairings: Erestor/?, Elrond/Thranduil (implied), Erestor/Glorfindel, Thranduil/ Viiresse (OFC)
Summary: Erestor learns he’s pregnant and starts crying rape. But is he telling the truth? Or is he trying to hide the shame of his unwedded relationship with another elf by spinning a fine web of lies.

Warnings: “?Rape?”, Angst, MPREG,
Authors Notes: Loosely based on some happenings in the LOTR RPG I’m currently playing, In Silpion’s light. Thanks to Az and her mad Elladan for the inspiration. Thanks to Milly for helping all this make sense.
Feedback: Sure I’d love some.
****ATTENTION****** Because I’m a doof I forgot to say this before! This has all been Beta read by Beckyboo! Total sweetheart who does a great job at making sure I make sense.
Erestor glanced cautiously at his dinner mate. After Glorfindel had left he had given up on changing but when Tella had arrived with his lunch she had insisted on helping him change. Then a few minutes later Glorfindel had entered the room and asked Tella to bring him lunch in Erestor’s room.
Erestor had ignored the elf all throughout lunch and when Tella reclaimed his platter Glorfindel had silently taken his tray and left. He had thought the strange elf had given up but here he was. Instead of Tella bringing him dinner he was stuck with Glorfindel and some truly superb grilled vegetables and some roasted meat. Finally he put his fork down and looked directly at Glorfindel who was calmly sipping some wine.
“Why are you here Glorfindel?”
Glorfindel finished the wine in his glass. He took the napkin and blotted his lips before addressing Erestor. “Would you pour me some more wine?” He asked holding up his empty goblet. Erestor wasn’t sure why, but he did as Glorfindel asked and resumed eating.
Tella returned for the plates and still not a word had been spoken between the pair beyond Glorfindel’s request for more wine. Erestor would never admit it but the silent company had almost been nice.
“Well I’ll just leave you two to talk,” Tella said with a secretive smile.
Glorfindel watched Erestor, glad to be able to use this close scrutiny on an elf he had only been able to observe from afar. The fact was he didn’t know what to say. ‘I’m sorry’ just didn’t seem to be something Erestor wanted to hear. Finally something occurred to Glorfindel.
“Why aren’t you fading?”
Erestor looked at Glorfindel tiredly as a realization seemed to dawn on him. “Oh, just tell Elrond I will be out of his hair once this child is born one way or the other. He does not need to send in reinforcements.”
“I am not doing this on Elrond’s behalf.”
“My own. Unlike Elrond I am not able to so easy to dismiss what you said.”
“I am tired Glorfindel, I am in no mood for your games,” Erestor said turning away from the blonde elf.
“It is still early Erestor.”
“Excuse me if nearly dying and breaking my foot exhausts me,” Erestor said in a cold controlled voice.
Glorfindel sighed and stood. Things had been going so much better when he hadn’t spoken a word. He took one last look at Erestor who was actually going to sleep on his chair and made his way to see Tella and Maglin. Glorfindel knocked on the door and Maglin answered a glass of wine in his hands.
”Ah good you’re awake. Is Tella awake as well?”
“Why yes since when have you taken a liking to she elves? Married she elves?”
“Worried?” Glorfindel asked with a smirk.
“Ha! Not of the likes of you. Tella, Glorfindel is here to see you.”
“Really? Well stop being rude and invite him in! Lord Glorfindel would you like some wine? How did it go with Erestor?”
“Erestor? You actually talked to that frigid elf?” Tella smacked her husbands arm and indicated for Glorfindel to sit.
“No, when you left I finally started talking to him. I don’t know what I said wrong.”
“What did you say?”
“Do you know what happened?” Tella nodded and Glorfindel continued. “I asked him why he wasn’t fading.”
“Look I don’t mean to be rude, but you haven’t been here the few last months. There were days when Erestor wouldn’t move, blink or anything else. Then he started taking daily walks. Everyday he returned to his room covered in rotten food. I finally asked him why he didn’t just stay inside.”
“Because he is stubborn?” Glorfindel asked.
“What makes you think Erestor likes to make his life difficult? He did it because Elrond ordered him to take a daily walk or leave Imladris right away. Erestor is terrified of placing one foot out of line, even if it means being constantly harassed. And our “all mighty Lord Elrond” ignores it all.”
“That’s not like Elrond,” Glorfindel muses.
“Some people think he accused one of twins, and that’s why Elrond refuses to do anything to stop them as long as they don’t harm the child.”
“It isn’t one of the twins.”
“Oh I know that, those boys are angels. But I can’t really talk to Erestor you know? He’s warmed up to me but not that much. And I wouldn’t be foolish enough to ask him if it was one of the twins.”
“So what should I do?” Glorfindel asked.
“What had you done before that? You seemed to be getting along when I came for the tray.”
“We hadn’t said anything. He asked me why I was there and I asked him for more wine.”
“That doesn’t seem so bad, Erestor likes quiet.”
“Then I asked him why he wasn’t fading.”
“I swear, Lord Glorfindel tomorrow at noon be in the gardens. Erestor always walks the same path along the water, I think its because Elrond could see him if he looked.”
“You are forgetting something my dear lady, Erestor has a broken foot. He won’t be walking tomorrow.”
”Then first thing in the morning you are bringing him breakfast and an apology. I swear if you warriors can’t poke it with your big swords you have no idea what to do,” Tella said as Maglin pulls her into his lap.
“I thought you liked my big sword?” Tella blushed deeply and Glorfindel smiled at the happy pair.
“How on earth did you two meet?”
“I personally brought this oaf lunch for months and nothing! Then some visiting Marchwarden harassed me and he used his sword to solve the problem.”
“See our swords are not all that useless,” Glorfindel said as he stood, “I’ll leave you two alone. Goodnight.”
“Goodnight,” Maglin called.
”And its nice to find out why you and Haldir are so friendly,” Glorfindel said with a chuckle.
