“There are so many things!” Eldarion gazed wide eyed at the market.

“Naneth will love whatever you choose,” Aragorn reassured him.

“Maybe I can be of assistance?” Ambassador Tahir approached from the Harad quarter. “I will show you my lady’s favourite stall.”

Almost hidden in a corner was a tiny table presided over by an ancient dark skinned merchant. On it were trays piled high with exquisite wares.

“I like this.” Eldarion chose a necklace of silver filigree adorned with tiny roses.

Tahir bade the merchant wrap a brightly enamelled dish with the necklace. “A gift of friendship,” he smiled.

I was waiting for my banner to post this here but originally posted it on the other archives on January 25th. Can anyone guess why I chose that date?
