It was a long trek to Formenos – sometimes called Formandos, North Prison.
“Finwë?” Indis breathed, as though it were the password for the abandoned gate. She passed through in the darkness, only the cold light of the stars above to shine on the scene. Not even her lantern shone here.
How much blood had stained the broken tiles? Indis turned in a slow circle, stopping before the cairn of cold and unfeeling stones. Who had placed them? Fëanáro? Had he allowed his sons to join in?
“Farewell, husband,” she whispered, tears staining her cheeks. “Forgive me for failing our children.”
