A/N: Another drabble in the sequence about Annael, Grey Elf of Hithlum, who took part in the Battle of Unnumbered Tears
Do not think I made no attempt to stay your mother’s flight, Tuor. I spoke, but spoke in vain; my words could gain no traction, for Rian could see too clearly that, although alone of my company I had escaped and returned to Mithrim—outwardly unscathed, almost—my mind was wounded. I had left part of myself on the battlefield that day.’
