In the Wind from the Sea
"You cannot let them land!"
"A Stunted One? Unheard-of!"
Telpelambe battles rising panic, assailed by a gathering crowd. Why did Málagaiar choose today for mainland business, asking his nephew to do harbour-master's duty at Avallónë's quayside? He'd thought it a perfect opportunity to relax on the sea-wall in the sun...
The Dwarf and Elf in the ship's bows stand regarding him with folded arms; he really does not want to argue with them. Then inspiration strikes:
"The Straight Way opened for them. So this must be the Valar's will!"
With a flourish, he declaims: "Welcome to Tol Eressëa, my lords."
Telpelambe - Silver-tongue (Telerin)
Málagaiar - Loving-sea (Telerin) - Telerin bodged together by me with help from Ardalambion.
