Sharing the News
Vingilótë was safely berthed until the next night. As Eärendil hurried towards the doorway of the Tower of Birds, he carried the Silmaril in the secure holder that Lord Aulë had made for him. His bright smile rivaled the lanterns lighting the pathway.
Later that day, holding Elwing in his arms, he told her of his voyage, sharing the joyful news that he had finally located their sons, alive and well. For the moment he did not volunteer the information that they were in the care of the remaining kinslayers. ‘Let her remain relieved for a little while,’ he thought.
