Rulers and Leaders
Curufinwë strode quickly through the garden.
If only I hadn't been delayed by Grandfather Mahtan, he thought. I've probably missed my chance to warn Mother.

“You cannot leave him like this,” a firm baritone voice argued.
“You may rule the Noldor, but you do not rule my heart," returned his mother's alto. "I live here now. Fëanáro can take care of himself.”
“But you have children!”
“Who know they are always welcome here.”
