Arwen regarded the cloak her small son was wearing with dismay. The garment was finely woven, but well worn. “Why is Eldarion wearing this old cloak?” she asked his nanny.
“The King desired that he should wear it,” the woman replied.
Later that day Arwen said to Aragorn. “Our son has fairer cloaks by far. It surprises me that you chose such a shabby one for him to wear.”
“I spent many a happy childhood hour playing out of doors in that cloak,” said Aragorn. “I recall my mother weaving it for me.”
Tears pricked Arwen's eyes. She said no more.
