HERITAGE

Estel eyes the kit with trepidation. Soap and fat little brush are innocuous but the knife looks lethal and why a pot of cream?

Elrond instructs his heart-son. “Wet the brush and apply lather with a circular motion.” Estel feels confident of this at least.

“Now scrape the knife against the direction of hair growth, pulling the skin taut.” Estel fights laughter as Elrond demonstrates the facial contortions required.

“Ouch!” He presses a finger to the nick and Elrond holds up the pot.

“Where did you learn about shaving, Adar?”

“Isildur.” The name reverberates ominously between them.
