Summary: Nienna and Haldir are in love, but it is forbidden for them to be together, under the order of Nienna’s mother, Galadriel. Nienna’s niece, Arwen returns to Lothlorien with her husband, Aragorn, and Aragorn’s friend, Legolas. Nienna sneaks off with them as they leave, pretending to have an urgent message for Elrond for two reasons: Haldir is returning with them, and she wants to be with him, and she wants to be free, away from her strict parents.
But Aragorn finds out and makes sure that Nienna and Haldir stay as far away from each other as possible. He keeps her under the watchful eye of Legolas. Nienna never liked Legolas to begin with, but after spending so much time with him to and at Rivendell, he grows on her.
Haldir is jealous and wants nothing more than Nienna’s love. Legolas feels the same way. Nienna must now choose between Haldir and Legolas. Her love for Haldir is forbidden, but her love for Legolas would be welcomed with open arms by her parents.
