4. Awestruck - MerryK
AwestruckHere I lie, exhausted and worn, holding the first Fëanárion in my arms. Seeing the fiery tufts placed seemingly at random by Illuvatar on his head, I smile and am glad that some of myself is in him. The midwife has sent for my beloved, but a tinge of worry grips me. He can be so proud and aloof, my Noldorin prince; what kind of father will he be to a little one?
But then the door opens, and in he glides to my side, apprehension in his eyes. The little one arches his back and his head wobbles towards my Fëanáro. Involuntarily, if such a word can be used for Fëanáro, his hand reaches out and our son grasps onto him. My worry is relieved. This man who remains unastonished by anything that can be created with powers or hands, is awestruck seeing the wonder that is his son.
