Finrod entered his rooms after his discussion with Celeborn. Wiping the sweat from his neck, he hung his sword by its hilt in the stand. Calling “Enter,” in response to a knock on his door, he saw Galadriel in the doorway.
She was smiling and there was a softness in her eyes that had long been missing. Flowers crowned her brow.
“Tell me sister,” he asked, delighting in her happiness. “Are you resolved to wed this Prince of Doriath?”
Twirling, she said “My days of desolation turn into nights of anticipation when I'm in his arms.”
