Summary: '2010: Celebrían departs over the sea.' Written for the 'pack' prompt.
Celebrían had gone. Frail, listless, too weary even to turn and wave as her escort rounded a bend in the path and was lost from view.
Elrohir stood motionless, staring at the empty track for a long time after. He started at a touch on his arm, and turned.
“I cannot stay here. The memories … her scent …” Elladan shuddered. “I cannot rest while the ones who did this are still out there. Free. Gloating. Will you come?”
Elrohir stirred. “Need you ask?”
They left that same night, with nothing but their horses, packs, and an undying, bitter hatred.
