Summary: Nerdanel has a suitor

These characters all belong to the estate of J.R.R. Tolkien. This story was written for pleasure and not for financial gain.

Nerdanel was never happier than when she could cast aside embroidered gown and velvet mantle for the simple garb of a smith. She loved the bright flames of the forge and the consonance of the hammer upon the anvil.

Fëanor often found reason to tarry in her smithy, his eyes hungrily watching her every move. She wondered at this, but said nothing.

One day he took her hand. "Tell me, my lady, have you ever thought of crafting a cradle?"

"Why do you ask?"

"Because we would require one for our children would you but consent to be my wife."
