'Rage' challenge - 'Lord Protector'

Title: Lord Protector
Author: Kortirion
Character: Lord Elrond
Rating: G
Source: Pre-LotR
Disclaimer: Tolkien made Middle-earth – Kortirion plants daisies in the grass.
Notes: inspired by shebit’s ‘rage’ drabbles

Isildur is dead - they found nothing but a bloated carcase. My rage I turned inwards; I should have acted! No - I may rail against men’s weakness, but I could not force him to relinquish it. I might have tipped both into the fires, but I am no murderer – now, he is dead.

Peredhil – I’ve not forgotten our choices, not forgotten men’s weakness is also within me. Rage I might, but I secretly understood Isildur’s desire. I can but hope the Valar send me the opportunity to make amends, until then… I must be protector to my brother’s line.
