“What happened then, Glorfy?”

Glorfindel paused in his narrative and gazed at the eager faces before him. The twins loved to hear him tell stories of the battles of the First Age. They gloried in the stories of war, often reenacting them with gusto after they were put to bed.

And Glorfindel could understand. To him, the stories were echoes of sorrows long borne, but for the twins, they were only words. Only stories to inspire them to be heroes themselves.

And so he continued, faithfully recounting the tales to his rapt audience.

He would have it no other way.
