Signs of Autumn - Mists: Because my Land is Fair, by Himring

Title: Because my Land is Fair
Author: Himring
Characters: Beleg (of Doriath), Annael (of Hithlum)
Rating: General

Book/Source: Silmarillion
Disclaimer: All Tolkien’s—just filling in a gap or two
A/N: This links up with a story of mine featuring a journey of Beleg’s to Hithlum, but it is not necessary to know that story to follow this drabble.

Beleg decided to return to Doriath. Annael offered to accompany him a little way.
It was morning and a little cool still, in the shadow of the hills of Androth. Dew lingered on the grass and mist in the hollows and groves.
'Here we must part,' said Annael.
'Will you not consider,' asked Beleg again, 'and take your people south, to the safety of the Girdle?'
'Look about you,' answered Annael. 'I love this Land of Mist. Here is my home. I would not leave it when orcs roamed unhindered. How much less now that they have been beaten back!'

A/N: “Hithlum” translates as “Land of Mist” (in Sindarin).
The title is taken from the song of the Ent-wives
