A glimpse of the end of a day during Gil-galad's early childhood, before he was sent to Cirdan. Fingon is bringing up motherless young Ereinion with a great deal of help from Erien, who is an old friend of his.
Written for the Gratitude Challenge for November 2014, which asked for a drabble or multiple drabble (up to a triple drabble) on the subject of somebody being grateful or ungrateful.
This is actually a quadruple drabble (4 x 100 words according to MS Word), but gratitude figures in all four of the linked drabbles.
