“It is one of my duties and greatest joys as Chieftain to welcome each new babe into our family. May the stars forever light this child’s path!” 

Aragorn pronounced the ritual blessing on Halbarad’s third son and then handed the baby back to his proud parents. Once the feast was underway he left the company and stood alone under the frosty starlit sky. 

“You must find this hard. I know how you yearn for a wife and children.” 

“It is, Halbarad. But maybe when Arda is safe for all our children, I will at last be granted my heart’s desire.”

Rivers and lakes, mountains and forest, towns and villages, orchards and farms stretching as far as the eye could see. Despite the ravages of war, Gondor was still most fair. The realm of his forefathers was now for him and his descendants to rule over and cherish.

Cradling the precious sapling, Aragorn looked at Gandalf, questions still in his eyes.

“Your line is that of Lúthien, Elessar,” said the Wizard. “It will never fail so long as Men live and breathe and Arda endures. Your descendants will be like the stars in the heavens or the sand upon the shore.”
