“He would need a plant that only grows on cliffs,” Glorfindel muttered, checking behind some boulders. He shook his head. He’d agreed to help Elrond, and so he would. He lifted aside a branch to find only plain rock. He started to move on, but paused. Brushing away debris, he revealed a crudely wrought, yet still visible, inscription.
Glorfindel sucked in a painful breath. Elrond had explained how violent seas had tossed far ashore Beleriand’s ruins, but he had not expected this.
“Did you find something?” Elrond called.
“No!” Glorfindel replied, allowing the branch to hide his own gravestone.
