3. Leavetaking

I see my sons leave also, but on another road, for another purpose. They desire to ride to war, with my foster-son's kin, for the Dunèdain received word from him.
"Father," they said, "If the one is destroyed we wish to be there, to be part of it."
But I think of words just spoken, by another.
'The quest will claim his life.'
"And if the quest fails?" I sigh
"We will die to protect this world." They speak together, each as confident in this as the other.
So I will lose my sons as I almost lost my daughter, but can I blame them, this earth is the only home they've ever known.
