Summary: For Larner on her birthday, a continuation of last year’s birthday drabble “On September 22 F>A>”. Frodo and Elrond are getting closer to the Undying Lands. Will Frodo be able to heal?

Broken Pieces in the Islands

“I fear that I will never truly heal,” Frodo whispered to Elrond as their ship sailed through the Enchanted Islands.

They were sitting facing West towards the Undying Lands. Elrond turned towards the Ringbearer. “The Valar will heal you and replace your pain with joy, even as wounds knit closed. You’ll be hale again.”

“No, I am breaking apart, like these islands. The pieces are too small to reassemble.”

“The hands that made you can remake you. You will live and love again, and someday Sam will join you.”

The companions fell silent thinking about the power of Love Eternal.
