The clearing smoke showed movement amongst the buildings, but it was not the person Aragorn wanted to see. Elrohir appeared, smoke blackened and distraught. Not even the rain could conceal the tears cutting tracks through the soot on his face.
He embraced him as he had his young foster brother many times throughout his childhood, but this time, Aragorn realised, it was not he who was being comforted.
“I knew you would come,” Elrohir was saying, “I promised Arwen you would.” His voice shook with a mixture of shock and blinding rage, “Arwen…she must be in there. We took out a hunting party. When we came back…The fire was too strong.” He turned away blindly, confused and unable to deal with the sudden upheaval and loss of the only home he had ever known. “I have to find them…”
“She’s not in there Estel.” Elladan’s voice cut over his twin’s as he emerged from a still-cooling building, nursing a burn to his arm. “I looked in her quarters – there’s no one there. No…no bodies.”
He joined them and placed a steadying hand on his brother’s shoulder. “This was deliberate. Rivendell would not burn.” His deadly quiet voice was filled with pure white-hot fury. “I swear, by the sky and stars, I will kill whoever did this.”
