Long was the Way

For the "Wrestling" prompt.


For years he's wrestled with memories of fire, dreams of water - grateful for Eowyn beside him, understanding; each ready to battle the other's demons in place of their own.

Mithrandir, Aragorn, Imrahil all told him; Your father loved you. Judge him not over-harshly for the despair to which Sauron brought him at the last.

There's never a moment of transformation; rather a slow acceptance, an imperceptible ebbing of his heart's heaviness till, one day, he realises it has gone.

The day he holds his newborn son and remembers the grandfather Elboron will never know with sadness, and pride.
