The Long Road Home, part 3
Slowly Celebrían began to emerge from the drifting mists that had filled her fëa, hiding those parts she wished to forget but also so much more.
Her father’s brother helped her focus, asking few questions, and those only about her own childhood – things it was a pleasure to recall.
As she began to surface she found she could now tell the other Elves around her from each other; those who had previously been no more than names in the genealogy list of her childhood became individuals, grandparents rather than myths.
But it was Celeborn’s brother who first saw her smile.
