Five Elements: A Drabble Cycle
5. Part Five: Water
The gulls surrounded him, shrieking and crying. They were his companions now; he refused to go back to his own kin. The Sea was always beside him.
How the mighty is fallen, the gulls seemed to cry. The fire consumed the spirit, now the Sea consumes the soul…
Maglor wept, for it was true. He could not leave the Sea to which he was bound. His songs were rife with its sorrow, and in his dreams it consumed him like it had the Jewel.
And so he wandered ever upon the shores, singing in pain and regret against the waves.
