Aragorn shifted uneasily on his bedroll. He was too exhausted to find rest easily. His mind drifted over the day’s events.
A battle won, a dear kinsman lost, the souls he had snatched back from the Shadow, and Peregrin Took. How it had lightened his heart to see the lively young Hobbit clad as an earnest Citadel Guard!
Pippin had grown up a good deal these past weeks, but lost none of his Hobbit warmth and liveliness. Imrahil had been so scandalised at Pippin’s informal greeting! Aragorn smiled, wondering whatever Elrond would have thought before sinking into a dreamless slumber.
