The Long Road Home, part 4
The ships from The Havens arrived more often now. There had been twelve years between the one Celebrían sailed on and the next. Even so she could not remember reading the letters that it had carried for her.
But now more elves arrived, many drawn, careworn; Middle Earth was darkening.
With them came letters from Elrond, Arwen, Mother. Nothing from her sons; Arwen said they were busy fighting, fighting, always fighting the dark.
No long letters, either, from Adar. But always, at the end of Naneth’s, a tiny design of twisted tengwar – Adar’s cipher for his heart, sailing with her.
