Midsummer nights held a special magic for Aragorn.  He had plighted his troth to Arwen at Midsummer.  They had later sealed their wedding vows on Midsummer Night.

 

He would walk with Arwen in the gardens under a full moon, though his Queen preferred the nights when the moon hid and brilliant stars blazed unrivalled in the dark heavens.

 

Tonight they strolled in the court of the Fountain. The White Tree shone silver, illuminated in the moonlight. Surely even Nimloth herself could not have gleamed with more lustre? Here lay Gondor’s heart, a reminder both of past glories and future hopes.

“Help us, please! They say you are a great healer!” The woman thrust the tiny bundle in her arms towards the dusty traveller. He took it, examined it carefully and shook his head sadly.

“I am sorry, the babe emerged from the womb too soon to live.”

“We are young, we shall have more children.” The young man sought to console his wife.

“I want my son! Why must the Higher Powers steal my beautiful baby?”

Thorongil blinked back tears. His healing arts had saved many, but it was the ones he was powerless to help who haunted his dreams.
