Valandir just eyed everyone as the ring was brought forward, he saw it as an evil thing. A ring which would lure someone in and would take a hold of ones soul, darkening it until there was nothing left but an empty shell that followed the ring. He could see the ring, how it was a treacherous beauty to be feared, she was divine but deadly. The darkness it held was beyond comparison, it was evil and he could already see how everyone was instantly taken by the ring as he sat by Amayla. She was silent as she was staring at the two elven men that looked alike, he already knew that look on her face. She was taken by one of those men, and he knew that people had been whispering about his scar. Even the young hobbit had glanced at him, the scar wasn't something you saw on many elves. They were flawless in every way, they were not supposed to have markings but he wore his with pride.
He listened intently to the story as he then looked at Elrond as he let a man speak, requesting for help further away. Anger actually moved through his pains as knew the orcs were coming closer, those beasts should be allowed to come near. He would stay and make sure that the people were safe, he would make sure Amayla was safe. Amayla got up as he was too late to stop her, he knew she was great with the bow and she knew medicine, she actually had saved his life and made sure he got through the pain. "I volunteer lord. I would be a great asset because of my knowledge about medicine and my bow.'' she said as she had barely spoken when Valandir got up.
"I'll use my sword and arrows to protect the last homely home. If you will allow me my lord, there will hav to be another elve to hunt alongside you.'' Valandir said as he made a slight bow as he kept his elven tongue, he knew the language of men but he preferred his own language, it just sounded better as he stood back up. "You do not need to protect me.. I'm strong enough myself.'' Amayla hissed under her breath as she felt his hand on her shoulder and heard him speak.
"This is about my own pride Amayla, the orcs should know that we are a force to be reckoned with. That we will go to war even when we are a peaceful kin! We will destroy the darkness so peace can come over the lands once more.'' she head him say as she shook her head and let her eyes fall onto the guard once more. He actually was the most attractiv elven man she had seen and she loved to show what she could do. "Valandir you should not tell lies.'' she whispered as she actually liked his warm laugh, it jade hernfeel at home ho matter where she was.
