“Must you leave so soon?” Arwen’s voice trembled. “Stay at least until I have my first child!”
Elrond regarded his daughter sadly. “The longer I delay the harder our parting will be. If I saw your first child, I would yearn to see the second and the third. Thus I would linger until the doom you have chosen befell you. Do not ask this. My time here is over. Your future with Estel is just beginning.
“Adar!” Arwen’s tears flowed freely now.
“Always remember, although I journey to the far side of the world, in my heart I remain here.”
