1. Sunset Gates
Gimli stood on the deck of the westward bearing ship watching as the shore of the new land came into view. A tear welled up in his eye as he saw the Lady ahead, standing tall and proud, her arm raised in greeting. He placed his hand over his heart, where a lovingly crafted silver box held three golden hairs, and smiled a secret smile.
He stepped off the ship; a small figure swallowed up by the crowd, and reflected pensively upon his new home, his final home.
A man sitting behind a desk greeted him. "Welcome to Ellis Island."
