He feels he cannot walk another step, until he does. The next step is the same, and the next, and he has stopped counting the sunsets and sunrises because measuring eternity has no purpose. He has wandered an eternity already, carrying his small harp for some indeterminable, compulsive reason, because it will be years before he can play again, if ever, and the sand blows into his eyes and into his throat as he sings. His hands are burnt and scarred and his voice is hoarse, and he wants to rip the strings from the taunting harp and scream, but he is unable to do either because it hurts too much.
Every muscle that has been on fire begins to numb from sheer fatigue, and he feels that he will die without food but is too weak from walking to fish or hunt- but then, Maitimo survived thirty-some years without food, didn't he- and now he is thinking of Maitimo again and he swore to himself that he would not think of them right now.&

A note on the names: We know that the names given in the legendarium are elven variations of the original names. I decided to let these people address each other in their own language:
Ylpang = Ulfang
Bör = Bór
Yldar = Uldor
Warning: I've allowed my inner philologist/culturologist/anthropologist to run a bit wild.
The wind from the West was sweeping through the plain. Chilly though it was, it was almost pleasant compared to the vicious bite of the howling winds that usually came from the North. It was winter still, but spring was already fast approaching, and the grasslands were like matted brass, wave upon wave of yellowish mass, rustling, sighing, stretching into the horizon.
A small gathering of men could be seen amid the ceaseless undulations, sombre and firm like a rocky island in the middle of a perturbed sea. Their horses grazed not far from them, and above their heads two large eagles circled in the sky.

Something was poking him in the side. Given the fact that he had only just fallen asleep – by his count – Thranduil groaned softly against the pillow and dug his face farther in.
The poking increased. Thranduil’s stubbornness did too.
He jerked awake as his wife’s voice finally penetrated through his thoughts, sending him into a sitting position, one hand armed with a long hunting knife.
Elysia eyed the weapon with a mixture of amusement and horror: "You sleep with a knife under your pillow?"
Quick assessment told him that there was no immediate danger, and so his tense stance relaxed: "A habit left by the Last Alliance. What is it?"
"I think I heard something in the parlour."
The King allowed his body to relax back against the pillows and tossed an arm over his eyes.

The young woman in question lifted her gaze from one of the handkerchiefs she was mending, and offered her sister a small smile.
"What is it, Grianne?"
The girl came forward with slumped shoulders and settled into the seat next to her, whereas the matron that was sewing peacefully smiled, but kept her head down.
Outside, it was raining.
It had been raining almost non-stop ever since before the spring solstice, like the weather was mourning the leave-taking of the Elves and wished for them to return. Water ran in small rivulets down the streets, making it impossible to go over them after a certain period of time, and thus far the inhabitants of Dale remained indoors. Thankfully, the weather broke just enough for them all to enjoy the outdoor festivities during the solstice itself, and Elysia smiled more when she thought about the fireworks the Dwarves had procured, and King Theron’s kind parting words as he and his kin ret
