Tall Ships and Tall Kings, by Kaylee Arafinwiel (Weather - Storm)

Title: Tall Ships and Tall Kings
Challenge: Weather (Storm)
Author: Kaylee Arafinwiel
Characters: Elrond, Estel (Aragorn II)
Summary: Seven-year-old Estel inquires about the day’s history lesson.

“Tall ships and tall kings, three times three. What brought they from the foundered land…” Estel recited, as Elrond listened. “Adar, is it true the ships almost drowned?”

Elrond nodded. “It is true,” he replied. “Such a storm arose in the wake of the Downfall that the nine ships of the Faithful were overwhelmed. But for the grace of Ulmo they would have been lost ere they came to ground.”

“But the kings,” Estel protested, “if I was king, I would have told Ossë to play nicely.”

“Would you indeed?” Elrond asked. Estel wondered at his foster-father’s suddenly intent gaze.
