REUNITED

Elrohir did not follow as they climbed the hill, picking their way between ancient trees. Eldarion fished in his pack for a small box. “Are you certain this is the place?”

“She was my sister.” Elladan pointed down, then walked away.

On bended knee, Eldarion cut a small hole in Cerin Amroth's emerald sward. From the box he sifted a tiny pile of grey dust, then replaced the sod, resting a hand in benison for a moment. “Here shall you lie together, whatever may come of this new peril.” Then he refilled the box with earth, for his sisters.
