The Lord of the Rings


By Ainaechoiriel

Remember. That is all they ask of me. So simple a task, and yet heartbreaking. For they will all leave me, one by one, even so faithful Gimli. Gandalf and I alone of the Fellowship shall live to see the end of this world. Boromir left us long ago. Frodo and Sam did go west, but I doubt they still wait there. Merry and Pippin will follow Boromir soon, and Aragorn will lay down his life in acceptance of Iluvatar's Gift. Already he grows weary. And Gimli, one day, too, will pass away. Grief is my burden; remembrance, my destiny.
