The pitch and heave of the ship as it left the harbour roused ancient memories and ancient fears. But he’d shepherded thirteen children to adulthood, served as Mayor seven times, carried a friend up a mountain. Feet planted firmly, Sam gazed steadfastly ahead.

An Elf poised to climb the rigging smiled at him. “It will be smooth sailing, Master Perhael. We have a saying that in the Common Speech goes: Red sky at night, sailor’s delight.”
