For the 'Parting' challenge.

Sail Away. Sail Away...

Everything was ready now. Trunks held items to set up a new home, somehow, somewhere, in the West; what they could not take had been given to elves who were remaining, or to men.

Tindómë looked back at their home for the last time. Her tear-filled eyes caused her to trip, dropping the bag of personal possessions. Half-blinded still she scooped everything up and walked, head high, away.

When she realised, at sea, that she had lost her comb she wept again.

“I will make you a new one, meleth,” he said - and took out a piece of Ithilien wood.

Hmm - have just noticed in the final edit I actually lost the word 'parting'! Hopefully I won't be drummed out of the community. The concept is still here...
