Aredhel watches the lone rider on the lakeshore and fingers an arrow. She could send it just past his ear— Not alone after all, she realizes as a large grey shape bounds out of the bushes with a triumphant bark.
The rider turns. “What is it, Huan?” Huan tries to lick her face.
“We thought you’d go back,” Celegorm says awkwardly. “We couldn’t guess your father would do such a hare-brained thing—”
She says with ice-cold fury, “It is not my father whose actions need explaining.”
“Father is dead!” he almost shouts.
The silence is broken by Huan whining softly.
