All the guests of the King and Queen of Gondor were enjoying a sumptuous feast; all that is; save the Variag envoy, who appeared most ill at ease.
The lords and ladies tittered behind their hands as he visibly struggled to select the proper cutlery.
Then came the fish course; fresh Anduin trout garnished with slices of lemon. Unsure how to proceed, the envoy ate the sour slices of fruit, much to the mirth of his dining companions.
Aragorn Elessar glared. He put a slice of lemon into his own mouth, as did Arwen Undómiel. Embarrassed, the guests fell silent.
