"'A Haunted Look"

They had met ghosts, of course. Even before they trod the Paths of the Dead they had encountered such whispery remembrances of men and, once or twice, the lost fëar of elves.

But, when the living foes had brought no fears, why would they have feared the ghosts?

Yet, as Tindómë got to know the brothers better, she realised that there were ghosts that travelled with them still; that haunted them even now. Their bodies showed no scars, their smiles came readily, but nonetheless behind those deep and star-filled eyes there flitted, now and then, the ghosts of their selves.
