drabble: new character

This is for the challenge at tolkien_weekly to write in a voice I have not written in before. 100 words is not really enough to say I have written in a new voice, but I have not written this character before (though Chris elladans_witch and I have had plans for a while now to do so together.

This one owes some of its essence to movie!verse, but holds up as canon. I feel like I squashed this one into the suitcase with a crowbar...
It all belongs to The Professor, and it is his fault for making me think these things...

“She was not a child, but a woman grown.” I smiled then, and added, “Thankfully, because I did not try to keep her, in the end I did not have to lose her.”
