22. Beyond Reach
Whether I stay or go, it matters not, for the sons of Fëanor will be compelled to hold to their oath. Sirion will not stand against their might. And yet, as the last remaining Elven stronghold, it must be defended.
I cannot let the Silmaril fall into their hands, for who knows what may then happen. Their hands are stained with the blood of those who should never die.
As I see it, I have no choice. The jewel must be removed beyond their reach. So in an attempt to save my sons, I must deprive them of their mother.
