Characters: Eldacar of Arnor, Elrond, Eärendil of Gondor
Summary: Earendil of Gondor speaks with Eldacar of Arnor of Eldacar's grieving.
King Eärendil approached, his gaze piercing as he took in his surroundings. The King of Gondor sighed, and Eldacar braced himself for another complaint of the wilderness Eärendil had been forced to traipse through.
Eldacar tensed. “Be welcome to my hall, Eärendil. I am sorry I had no trumpeter to greet you, no flowers to give you at our meeting.”
Eärendil laughed sardonically. “Would I insist on those? Not at such a time as this.” He sprang forward and clasped a shocked Eldacar in his muscular embrace. “My grief is yours, Eldacar. It is no easy thing, becoming King.”
