Summer arrived.

Sunshine glinted off the sea and when the younger pair were not on it in the dinghy they were beside it on the shore; old enough to sail or ride unaccompanied even though both still spent time in the school room.

Even better, soon they would see their brothers. Adar had arranged that Hiril Vuin, Elphir aboard, would take them up river, where Erchirion awaited them in Minas Tirith, ‘apprenticed’ to Adar for the summer before he, too, would spend some time at sea.

There would be balls and dinners and a chance to preen – Lothiriel couldn’t wait.

Minas Tirith was too hot. Lothíriel longed for Dol Amroth’s breeze off the sea to stir the heavy air.

Even so she was surprised when Adar suggested, first, that she would be cooler if she wore a simple dress and leave her hair down for dinner with their uncle, and then that she and Amrothos might return to the coast to escape the heat.

Surprised until Elphir explained, “He does not want Uncle Denethor to remember that you are fifteen now, and arrange a marriage for you to his advantage…”

Then she was glad to escape more than the heatwave.
