5 Lótessë: Letter from Serindë to Morwen

Pelargir, 5 Lótessë IV4

This missive must necessarily be short but very sweet.

I was safely delivered of another little boy a week ago. His name is Calmacil which is a bit of a mouthful for such a tiny scrap as he is, so it has already been shortened to simply ‘Calma’. He is nursing well and fattening up nicely. I also have the promised nursery maid at last so that I can dedicate myself to the newest arrival and not have to worry (too much) about the destruction being wrought by his siblings.

As for our sister, Leoba. Well, she has given me some hope. She has promised that she will give Turaglar a firm answer just as soon as she has finished her embroidery project: she has been co-opted by some of the local ladies to sew a part of their great needlework celebrating the deeds of our city founders and fore-fathers of Númenorë.  I confess, I did worry that she had taken it on as an excuse to stay around the house more and avoid invitations out but Turaglar seems to see this as a positive sign, being not an outright rejection.
