When Finduilas was young she heard the whales sing in Belfalas Bay a moonlit night in November. The song washed gently ashore, mixed with moon-crystals and sea-foam. She gathered cold foam in her hands and lifted it to her ear. Imagined she heard a tiny speck of song each time a bubble shattered.
The boy tugs at her hand and Finduilas returns to her dusky room with a start. The thin hum in her head still there. Boromir looks at her...worried.
She pulls him close, whispers into his ear:
