1. Beyond Death
We could not prevent your father’s death, but you we will protect. Darkness will not be your end.
Forever is too long a time for mortals to comprehend. You have both passed beyond the boundaries of Arda and there is no longer anything left for us here. We go now to join our parents, to wait for the ages to pass and for forever to come.
Eru willing, we will meet again.
