Nin estar Arwen.

He nods and softly blows; a smoke ring, shaped as a bird, flies upward. She smiles quickly. “Le hannon Mithrandir.

He glances to her and she sees the slight nod, hidden by his beard. She releases a slow breath and her shoulders ease a little. Her hands now in her lap, she looks at the smoke ring, nose crinkled. “Man carel le?
