Well, it was very touching, Maeve.
Er... I´m so glad you liked it. I found it so soppy at first! It was all... urgh. I cannot believe I´m writing this!
I am not sure why she decided to part with her son, but I guess it will be explained later. What was in this note that caused such a decision?
In the previous chapter (Eärendur´s POV), there was this quote:
"And now it was time for him to warn Inzilbêth, even with a letter that would put him at risk, if it was necessary. She needed to know about the prophecy of the serpents."
Anyway, I swear there will be more on this later, as well. You´re not the first to have suddenly felt confused in this chapter.
Once again, many thanks and deep bows!
