‘Now I, too, am a lady of mourning, it seems,’ garbed all in black. ‘Yet you have shed more tears for him than I.’

Nienna turned to face her, raised a hand to her cheek. Cool drops trickled down, but not from the eyes of Nerdanel, whose lips curled instead in a wry smile that left her ember-eyes untouched. Her voice was a cold whisper.

‘I am ash and stone, Lady. What now could happen to make me weep?’

Nienna was silent, silent as her hand came to rest upon the other’s proud shoulder. That you will know soon enough.
