The Elves at the stronghold of Eryn Lasgalen were in an uproar. As Legolas hurried through the corridors and halls he could hear the hushed whispers of excited conversations everywhere. It was easy to imagine this to be idle gossip - as it usually was - but this time there was good reason for the rush of emotions: They had failed.

The task had been so easy, in theory, simple yet important; Take care of one prisoner. There was nothing complicated about this, but now the prisoner was gone. If that was not bad enough, two of the Elves who had been guarding him were dead, and another so severely wounded that the healers were not sure whether he would recover from his wounds.

Several scouting groups had set out immediately in an attempt to track the creature. The Orcs had been found and destroyed, but of the prisoner no trace had been found. Legolas had been part of one of those search parties, and the group was the last one to return to the stronghold now. Their search had been as useless as that of the others and mood was exceptionally low.

The failure of Gollum's escape and the price of that escape weighted heavy on Legolas as it did on every Elf around, but the failure to recapture the creature was a personal one.

It was late, but Thranduil was still in the throne room, surrounded by his advisers who were also talking in excited hushed voices. The conversations died down as Legolas entered the room, though, and every face turned in his direction with expectations written all over them.

"What news do you bring, my son?" the king asked, even though Legolas had known what the question would be all along, and the assembled Elves surely could read the answer on his face. He did have to put it into words, though, something that made the failure and shame feel even more real.

"We traced down and destroyed the Orcs that did the attack, but there is no sign of the creature Gollum." he reported dutifully.

The reaction was much as Legolas had expected. Few of those present had still harboured hopes, but the confirmation of their fears was still suited to darken their spirits. Legolas, waiting to be dismissed, instead found himself invited to join the following discussion.

It was not much of a discussion, though. As it turned out, Thranduil and his advisers had already weighed all the options and made plans. "It seemed we truly failed in our task, and we can only hope that no evil will come of it." The King said, his voice weary yet controlled. "We have to inform Mithrandir, though. That will be your task, Legolas. Find the wizard and tell him what has happened."

Personally, Legolas was sure that the no ill will come of it was nearly impossible. Mithrandir would not have insisted that the creature be held securely if it were not important. He also did not like to be the bearer of bad news, but naturally he accepted the task without complaints. Not even Thanduil's own son was in a position to question the King's command once it was given.

There remained one problem, though. "The Grey Pilgrim is constantly traveling. Who knows where he is now? It could take me months to track him down."

"We considered this, too. Go to Imladris. If someone knows where to find Mithrandir it would be him."

When Legolas left the throne room, his world had turned a little darker still. Not only was there the epic failure of the Elves to properly guard Mithrandir's prisoner, now he was supposed to be the bearer of bad news. It made sense to send him, of course, he had to admit that. The issue was grave enough to warrant sending a member of the royal family on this errant, and Legolas unlike his older brothers had no standing duties in the realm.

"Errant boy." He mumbled as he made his way down the hall and to his quarters to ready everything for the journey. The term fit well enough, and despite the low connotation of the word, Legolas had never minded that status, as most times it meant more freedom, leisure time, and a great variety of tasks.

On the way, he stopped a maid and sent her down to the kitchen to ask the cooks to prepare some light provisions for two weeks. Two weeks were not a long time for the distance between Thranduil's Stronghold and the Last Homely House, but Legolas planned to travel as swiftly as his feet could carry him.
