Aragorn gritted his teeth and reluctantly prepared to start on his paper work for the day.
He knew the common folk sometimes regarded his life with considerable envy, considering it consisted of wearing fine clothes and eating sumptuous meals off golden plates. Indeed it did, but only on special occasions. With every day that dawned, the King was faced with stacks of papers.
Parchments detailing archaic laws, details for raising taxes, trade tariffs, warrants for executions, orders for deployment of troops. Each and every one requiring his personal attention.
Sometimes the King yearned to be a simple Ranger once more!
