7. The Pedant

T. A. 2939, Imladris

"And, so, Estel, the Elves can remain Houseless, if they wish. Not so for Men. When Men die, they pass entirely out of Eä. We know not where their feär go."

Unconsciously, without looking up from his paperwork, Erestor interrupted. "And what, penneth nin, of the spirits of Men under the haunted mountain of Rohan, near the Dimholt? Are they not houseless feär?"

Elrond suppressed a laugh. "Erestor, whom are you addressing?"

"It is long since I called you 'penneth', my Lord. But the question stands. Are they not Houseless?"

Elrond sighed. "Estel, I will teach you a new word."
