14. Changed (Gimli)
Do not look at me as if I have lost my mind! I am a child of Mahal and will always move to the rhythm of stone. Oh yes, my father thinks I have lost my mind, but bah! Let him think it! One cannot go on such a journey as we have traveled without finding himself changed.
Though I am a dwarf, I consider the elf my friend…and a good friend at that. Never find a better one, though I would never tell him it is so! Mocked by my own I may be, but I do not regret!
