Notes: Reduxed from Sins challenge - ‘Wrath’ 05/2007
Naneth dragged the scarlet cloak from his icy body. I howled into the raging blizzard as she wrapped me tightly.
“He needs it not, you do! Remember who caused this. Let wrath keep you warm!”
Exhausted, grieving, I staggered on, hugging the red wool; dimly, I heard Adar complain, “...that was not well done.”
She hissed, “Anger will heat his blood, sorrow cannot. Gentleness has no place here!”
Her goading kept my fea hot; kept me from fading, though my heart froze with my first love’s hröa.
From that day, I vowed to wear scarlet cloaks until Mandos claimed me.
