8. True Pride

“Brothers please, you go not for justice, but for vengeance and the sake of false pride. This avails no one.”

But my arguments will not sway them, just as Fëanor’s arguments will not sway me. There is nothing more to be said and they turn and walk away, moments later, I do the same.

Fëanor’s reason may be as I said, but for those I hold dear, it is love and loyalty to their kin. A terrible doom is upon them, and no words, however well spoken, can change this.

I shall play no further part in such foul deeds.


A Finarfin drabble in response to the Drabble Decisions Challenge.
