"Grief" - for prompt 'Lend'

Title: Grief

Rating: G

Summary: Concerning Nienna and Melkor before Eä’s beginnings.  Answering the prompt “Lend.”


Nienna and Melkor long conferred when still all was Void, until Nienna said:

“We are both troubled, something few yet understand.”

“Yet we are almost more different than any other two.”


“You dislike my anger.”

Nienna answered, “It grieves me.”

“Grief!  What is it like, to embody such an ineffective sentiment?”

“I have yet no words to answer.  I would lend you my own thought, that you might know.”

Melkor perceived not the friendship in this offer, and he departed in resentment and secret fear:

“You think to smother my wrath with this grief, yet wrath is the stronger.”
