Mewing loudly, the orange cat rubbed against Aragorn’s legs as he paused to speak to some children near the Citadel.
“That’s Marmalade,” a little girl informed him. “He follows me everywhere!”
Aragorn smiled at the child and stroked her pet. The cat was a magnificent feline. It reclined on the warm stones as if it owned them, the sun gleaming on its tawny fur.
“You are like Marmalade,” said the little girl.
Aragorn was about to protest when the cat stretched and regarded him with a regal air.
Whether cat or King was more lordly would be difficult to say!
