Tales At Granddad's Knee

Firiel remembered her grandfather and, at first, it was difficult to equate this elegant, almost youthful, figure with the long-retired guard captain of her own childhood.

Then, a week or more into Lord Celeborn’s visit, it occurred to Firiel that there were definitely similarities. The first one made her giggle; both his Lordship and Granddad shared thick white hair!

Then she recalled stories of long ago kings and queens, listening and being listened to, feeling safe. Granddad always had time for her.

Watching the Elven Lord and the Prince she was glad that Eldarion, too, would remember such loving companionship.
