Beware the Sea

An Elf of Alqualonde

The Sea pulls at my heart.

I can feel the sea-breeze in my hair, taste the salt-spray on my lips, see the dolphins jumping through the surf as I come home, my nets heavy with fish to feed my people, my hold bringing trade-goods from Tol Eressėa. It would be grand to sail again, to see what lies beyond these quays!

But ash catches in my throat, blackened stone imposes itself on memory unmarred. The ships are gone; my kin slain, my world reduced to rubble. What hope of future adventure?

And yet, the Sea still pulls at my heart.
