2. In Body and Mind

Author notes: Nearly an age after the War of the Alliance an elf encounters someone she thought long dead - or does she? References may be found in LotR and UT.


In the Hall of Fire a minstrel sings The Fall of Gil-galad - rendered in Westron for the Halflings' benefit, Elrond's daughter tells me.

He was the fairest Dúnedain I had ever beheld - like his grandsire, strong and wise, yet without conceit. If ever I were to love a Man...

The song ends; a new song begins. I open misty eyes to see him walking toward me.


Beside me Arwen breathes one word: "Estel."
