Warnings: Serious disagreement among a married couple
Book/Source: Silmarillion, History of Middle-earth
Disclaimer: Tolkien says Anaire refused to follow Fingolfin to Middle-earth because of her friendship with Earwen. He probably did not envision this scene.
At the last, Anaire’s distress changes to fury. Turning, she seizes a broom as if it were a weapon against the chaos that is intruding on her life. Fingolfin backs up a step. He thinks Anaire is not quite aware how menacingly she is wielding her broom, but if she decides to hit him with it, she may not hold her hand as Feanor once did.
‘If you can simply walk away like that, on your own two feet, from the city you claimed to care for so much,’ hisses Anaire, ‘someone else will have to take care of it!’
