Eärendil hoisted Elros onto his hip as Elrond clambered onto a chair. Elwing paused, smiling, in the doorway to watch as he answered all the questions the boys had about ships, while they stared in fascination at the plans scattered across the table. Elros in particular wanted to know everything there was about sailing.
Later, Elrond brought Elwing a map. “The world is so big,” he informed her solemnly and wide-eyed.
She smiled wistfully and traced the dark line that was the River Sirion with a finger. “Yes,” she agreed, remembering the long journeys of her childhood. “Very big indeed.”
