~~~

Everyone avoided the tower. It was believed to have saved more sailors than swimming. Calmindon welcomed them home: radiant, but forbidden – home to its keepers, who mustn't be troubled.

Uruzir had joined the Guild, world-restless, but seeing Azruphel, the keeper's daughter, he was scuttled.

“Will you wait for me?” he asked.

So he did – two years and ten stories later, she gave him one word worth all of his: yes.

Calmindon is the lighthouse set on Tol Uinen, and which guided the mariners of the Venturer's Guild home to Númenor.
