Summary: Maedhros and Maglor have an argument among the ruins of Elwing’s house in Tol Sirion. Sequel to “The Abandoned”. 119 words, sans title. Written for the 100-Drabbles-Challenge of Edhellond.

Dedication: A late birthday present for Jillian.


Maedhros, his hands as red from the blood of his kin as his fiery mane, glared at his brother with disbelief.

“You want to keep them?” he asked, too shocked to truly believe it.

Maglor, standing protectively over the abandoned sons of Elwing, glared back at him.

“Why are you so shocked? Have you not tried to save Elwing’s brothers in Doriath?”

“I have; yet it brought me no good,” Maedhros replied. “Or do you believe that saving these children would save you when the day of reckoning comes?”

“I know not,” said Maglor sadly. “All I know is that I cannot leave them to die. Too many innocents have been caught in the web of our curse already.”
