Into the West

I knew what was in his mind when he brought me the Red Book. The history of our folk, and Men, and Elves, and Dwarves, all that transpired when all our fates became entwined like fine knotwork. Bilbo Baggins set down the first of it; Frodo in his turn, and my father the last.

“Tell them stories,” he whispered, his voice breaking just the bit. He kissed my brow and turned away. I could not, would not, stop him. The sea-tanged breeze rustled his hair, and he seemed at once stronger, joyful, as he walked toward the setting sun.
