A Sudden Ache

Araewenel's adventures into Eastern Gondor began on Monday. It was outside Tumladen, on her way out after accepting a quest there, that she stopped and happened to look to the East. She was struck all of a sudden with a desperate melancholy for the one she had left behind. In all the wide world, she will not find him again. The darkening horizon is so large, and so close now.

She finds herself taking more and more to herself, going to the wild places where no people are, resting by the waters and the trees.

Of course, there is still an occasional enemy to defeat. She'll not shrink nor fade until her duty in this Middle-earth has been played out, and she can journey to the edge of the Sea, beyond which all will be restored and all aching wounds healed.
