The Abandoned

Rating: General
Summary: Sequel to “Caught in the Light”. Elros’ POV. Double drabble. Exactly 200 words, sand title. Written for the 100-Drabbles-Challenge of Edhellond.


The sounds of killing and dying came closer and closer by the moment, but his mother was not coming to get them away from this terrible place that was their home for a short time. Why did she not come for them? She had said herself that their attackers were monsters in Elven shape, Kinslayers, murderers of their own people.

They were coming closer, and yet his mother did not come for him. His brother, so eerily calm for his young age, was looking out of the window to the Sea, as if there were any hope to escape that way – unless they threw themselves from the high cliff.

“Mother is gone,” his brother said in a voice too calm, too collected to belong to such a young child. “She chose the only way out. We are alone now.”

Elros wanted to scream, to deny that she could have left them without a thought, but he knew his brother was right. They were alone, two young children, without help, without protection.

The sounds of fighting were very close now, and the children clasped hands, eyes dry and cold. They were alone indeed, but they still had each other, at least.
