Pale mist drifted between the houses and over the dark and empty fields. The sky was starting to lighten with the coming dawn, but there was no sound of birdsong, nothing but hushed voices counting heads and supplies, and children trying to keep their tears quiet.

Beril stepped out of her house for the last time, Arthad on her heels with their daughter in his arms.

Her father embraced her, Felagund's ring glinting on his finger, and then Beren. There were no words—everything had already been said.

Her mother led them away, silently, southward. Beril did not look back.
