In all honesty Sérëdhiel did not mind the rooming situation. Sure it wasn't exactly ideal, but out of the entire group she'd rather be with the mortal king. She couldn't bare being around Legolas, because he was so different from the elf she'd known. Aragorn allowed her to enter first and their was only one bed, not that she'd be sleeping. It just seemed strange to her, then again humans were strange to her. The King allowed her to bath first she thanked him before disappearing her body was sore from the exhaustion of her visions and the loss of Fillin. It was still painfully fresh however the longer she soaked the better her body felt.

Eventually she had to get out, while Aragorn bathed she readied herself taking her time. She dressed appropriately, before doing her hair up very formally she looked different, much like she had before she'd been forgotten. She looked less wild and more put together, it was easy to see then why Legolas had fallen in love with her in the first place. It was likely a sight Legolas had not seen nor other who did not know her before her disappearance.

"Legolas has seemed in a much better mood this day..at least until he found out that his sister was to stay with Haldir." the man spoke to her as she finished threading the crystal like jewels through her raven colored hair and she glanced to him. He looked handsome, she was dawn to him in a way she couldn't quite explain. She'd always love Legolas and she was bound to him, but Aragorn made her want something different, he almost made her want to be mortal.

She smiled back at him as she stood from the wooden desk she sat at. She took a step towards him. She felt that familiar warmth between them, it was nothing compared to what she felt when she stood close to Legolas, but there was something between them. She ignored the feeling, he was married, happily married. She kept telling herself, it was not known for elves to be unfaithful or to wreck someone else's life because of their own selfish, however Sérëdhiel wasn't like other elves, she was dark, heartless, and vengeful. The darkness was gripping her very light waiting for the right time to rip it from her. On a technical she was on Burzum's side, she just couldn't bare the thought of letting Legolas parish and that was why she'd come to warn him.

As much as she hated what people thought of her, referring to her as a witch and a monster, that's exactly what she'd become. "He's only in a better mood because he feels as though he's done me a justice." she said simply, though their was bitterness in her voice. "He will never be satisfied and it's going to kill the things he holds dear." she shrugged. "No matter though, I refuse to play his selfish games. I will not be one of his pawns." she breathed holding the kings eyes letting him know she was dead serious. "Enough talk of him. I must say I'm rather glad I will be rooming with you over the next few days, It is always a pleasure to be in your presence." she breathed as she took another step forward leaning in and kissing his cheek gently, letting her lips linger their for a moment longer then a friendly kiss, before pulling away and giving him a soft smile.

There was a small tug in the depths of her heart, it was her binding to Legolas as she kissed another's skin. It was ever present, but the pain had faded long ago when she'd sworn his memory away, but she knew even then it was no use. She realized now that their binding was so strong that even if he broke it, she'd still feel him with her and she almost hated him for that.

Haldir didn't mind the arrangement, he felt like he was doing what he was meant to when he was closer to Aeweth. There was a feeling od discontent when he wasn't close to her that he'd come to learn he hated. He felt his self growing too close to her, not that he'd stop it. He was drown to the young princess, the fact that they weren't speaking at the moment was agonizing. He wanted to apologize to her simply because he wanted to hear her voice, he wanted to hug her and hold her in his arms. He shook the thought from his head as they were taken to their room and he allowed the younger elf to go in before him.

She did not speak to him, simply slipped into the bathroom and readied herself. Their room was quite and it was frustrating him. He slipped into the bathroom without another word, bathing himself and thinking on how to deal with the situation. She was just as stubborn as he brother. He figured though, it was in both their best interests if he just got it over with and apologized to her.

He dressed in something a bit nicer then his usual Marchwarden attire. Legolas would not be pleased if he did not dress properly. It was just a dinner, with the mortal King of Rohan and his court, however they would be discussing several very important matters. Some of which would concern him others, that would not. The thought alone was exhausting, but they'd need Rohan on their side if they were to call upon back up.

He emerged from the bathroom when he was finished reading himself, his hair was braided back much more formal then usual. He cleaned up nicely. His eyes feel upon the princess and he was taken back by her beauty, ever time he saw her, he could swear he was seeing her for the first time, she'd grown up beautifully. He sighed softly before he spoke.

"I apologize for the way I acted. It was unlike me and I am unaware why I acted so." he said crossing the room and walking over to her he grabbed her arm gently turing her to face him. "I did not mean to hurt you, that was not my intentions and It will not happen again. I am here to protect you and that means all of you, including your emotions, my princess." he said honestly dropping his hand from her arm. "I understand though if you do not wish to speak to me." he finally finished allowing her time to speak if she wished.

She was surprised when Haldir spoke, breaking their silence. Though, she did not allow it to show. "I apologize for the way I acted. It was unlike me and I am unaware why I acted so." The older Elf made his way to her and took hold of her arm, turning her so that she was now facing him. Aeweth turned her gaze up to the Marchwarden, allowing him to continue. "I did not mean to hurt you, that was not my intentions and It will not happen again. I am here to protect you and that means all of you, including your emotions, my princess." Haldir released her then. "I understand though if you do not wish to speak to me."

The Princess was silent for a moment, simply allowing Haldir's words to run through her mind once again. She could easily tell that he meant the words. She sighed softly before she closed the distance that was between them. She slid her arms about the taller Elf, pulling him into a tight hug. He would never know how much he meant to her. She absolutely couldn't stand the thought of them being at odds and was glad that they were slowly moving past the previous night's events.

"Haldir.." She breathed into his chest. "Of course I wish to speak to you." Could he not see how their silence had tormented her? "It tears at my soul when we are fighting." She was being honest with him and it was clear in her actions. It had been horrible for her..not speaking with the older Elf. "I..fear that I must apologize as well. I was not kind to you."

She was still feeling terrible for the way she'd treated the Elf the day before. She wished to make things better between them. She pulled back slightly, her gaze on the Elf once again. Her gaze held great care for the Elf that she was standing so close to. She slowly slid her arms about Haldir's neck, suddenly bringing them close once again. She then leaned up, plaving a lingering kiss upon his cheek. A moment later she released him, saying that they likely needed to meet the others before Legolas became worried.

After some time had passed, Legolas finally got out of the bath and drained the tub. He then moved about the bathroom, drying himself fully. He then dressed, making sure that there were no wrinkles or any dirt on his outfit. He then brushed out his long hair, not bother to put any braids within it. He simply brushed it back as his father usually did. Only once he was ready did the Elf King place his crown upon his head.

He looked every bit the part of Elf King by the time he finally exited the bathroom. Valaina turned her gaze to him, smiling at the sight of him. "My King, you look ever so handsome." Legolas nodded to her, forcing a small smile upon his face. The woman the went to get ready. She did not take as long as he had but when she exited, she was dress as a future queen should be.

When they were both ready, Legolas offered his arm to the woman. The moment she took hold of his arm the King felt pain at her touch. He ignored it, leading the woman through the hall. He knew that the others would be arriving soon and it would not do good for them to be late. It did not take the King long to reach the dining hall. Éomer was already there, sitting with a few of the importants of his court. The Human king was not married and so no queen sat by his side.

The air of the hall was light as all those already gathered chatted. Legolas and Valaina approached the king and greeted him. "King Legolas, I do hope that your lodgings were satisfactory. Should any of your companions need anything, you've but to let me know." The Human said, a small smile on his face. Legolas thanked him for his kindness before taking a seat next to Éomer.

Legolas chatted with the Human and slowly the group that the Elf King was traveling with joined them. Only those of royalty were sat at the head table with Éomer, the others given seats where they could easily look up at the larger table. The Elf King was most glad when his sister was given the seat on the other side of the mortal King. It was easy for the male Elf to see that Éomer was immediately taken with his sister. "Legolas, why did you not tell me that you're sister was so lovely?" He asked Legolas before turning his gaze to the female at his side.

The meal began and there was much talking amongst those within the hall. For the time being, the air about them was light. It seemed that Éomer was in no hurry to discuss the more serious topics that they would need to speak on. Instead, he had given his full attention to Aeweth, the two of them speaking for the entirety of the meal. His sister's laughter lightened his heart. It had been some time since he'd seen her in such high spirits.

Slowly, the meal came to a close and those that were not in the Fellowship or in the immediate court were sent from the hall. The doors were closed and guarded. It was clear that Éomer did not wish any to hear what they were getting ready to speak of. "Now, we can speak of more important matters." He said, his voice commanding. "Come, friends. Join us up here. There is now plenty of room for all. I would prefer not to yell unless there is need."

Sérëdhiel smiled at him and Aragorn returned it, watching her as she took a step closer. He felt an odd warmth that seemed to flow about them whenever the female was near. It confused him. He loved Arwen, had fought for her. So why, then, did this female seem to draw him in? Her voice broke the silence, the Human suddenly giving Sérëdhiel his full attention. "He's only in a better mood because he feels as though he's done me a justice. He will never be satisfied and it's going to kill the things he holds dear. No matter though, I refuse to play his selfish games. I will not be one of his pawns. Enough talk of him. I must say I'm rather glad I will be rooming with you over the next few days, It is always a pleasure to be in your presence."

He allowed her words to wash over him as he watched her. The female moved closer again, placing a lingering kiss upon his cheek and as she finally pulled away a smile was on her face. "I am most glad as well, my friend. I am glad, as well, that you are not allowing Legolas to get to you. Even I can see how he has changed and it saddens me. But, there is only so much that we can do to help him. He must help himself. Now, give me a few moments. I should very much like to clean up before we are needed."

Aragorn moved from Sérëdhiel then, heading into the bathroom. He was quick to bathe, cleaning himself up. He then changed into a more appropriate outfit, one befitting that of the King of Men. Then, he tamed his hair, pulling part of it back so that it did not look nearly as messy as it normally did. When he was ready, he exited the bathroom and rejoined Sérëdhiel. "We should head down to the dining hall. It will not look good if we are late. There is much that we must discuss this night." Aragorn offered the woman his arm, more than happy to escort the female down to the hall.
