Passing Time Challenge - Phases of the Moon: The Traveller's Return

Title: The Traveller's Return
Author: Himring
Characters: Elendil Parmaite (later King Tar-Elendil of Numenor) and his cousin Yavien
Rating: PG
Warnings: nothing more than a veiled hint
Book/Source: Unfinished Tales
Disclaimer: Tolkien invented the descendants of Elros; Himring set some of them talking.

‘Where have you been, Yavien? You were gone more than three months!’
‘Was it so long? Maybe it was. It was full moon when I left, I remember…’
‘Where did you go, this time?’
‘I followed the course of the Siril down to the sea.’
‘But there’s nothing much there, is there?’
‘You’d be surprised!’
Usually, Parmaite has no trouble making Yavien talk; she was happy to tell them about discovering the tremendous cliffs of Sorontil on the North Cape and the sweet scents of lake Nisinen in the West.
Tonight she sighs, smiles and finds it hard to begin.
