The table was piled high with all manner of delicacies while the Steward and his lady entertained the King and Queen and their small son to tea. Eldarion’s eyes lit up as he beheld his favourite treats.

Arwen noticed that the plate containing honey cakes was empty. A guilty looking Eldarion was just devouring the final one. 

“Eldarion!” the Queen chided. “You should not be so greedy! Those cakes were to share.” 

A little while later, Eldarion cried, “I feel sick!” 

Aragorn escorted his whey-faced son from the room, forbearing to scold. The cakes would not taste so sweet again.
