The sprawled bodies tell their tale; she can see it as it happened. Celegorm’s sword buried hilt-deep in Dior’s chest; a white arrow in Celegorm’s throat; and over there Nimloth lies with the bow fallen from her hands, where one of their host cut her down.
Feredwen is shaking with fury. Nimloth’s death, Dior -- balanced against her lord’s death, all Menegroth weighs too little. She longs for an enemy, shifting her gaze like an arrow without a target, but finds only the dead.
Then someone says, “We found the children.” Celegorm’s followers look at each other with new purpose.
