Degrees Challenge - cold, frozen: My Home is in the North, by Himring

Title: My Home is in the North
Author: Himring
Characters: Maglor, OFC (one of the Lossoth)
Rating: G
Warnings: none
Book/Source: Silmarillion, Lord of the Rings (Appendices)
Disclaimer: The Lossoth are Tolkien's, but this one is mine.
A/N: This harks back to an earlier drabble series, in which Maglor rescued one of the Lossoth and promised to take her back home north to Forochel.

The first time Maglor sees Lossu smile is when they reach that cold frozen beach. Fragments of ice crunch underfoot among the sand. It is early yet; they will melt into moisture during the day.

‘This is how far I came,’ says Maglor. ‘Beyond that point up ahead, I do not know the way.’

‘But I,’ says Lossu, ‘have been here before. Now it is my turn to be the guide.’

Watching Lossu stride out into the tundra, confident and glad, Maglor thinks that truly Morgoth’s Shadow is departed from the North, for it has become home to the Lossoth.
