Aragorn looked out of the window. It promised another warm summer's day with a cloudless blue sky.
“It’s a perfect day, sire,' the serving maid said cheerily as she brought his drink.
Aragorn was not so certain. In the North, days such as this were a rarity to be cherished. Sometimes he missed the fierce storm clouds that galloped across the sky like wild horses; the grey rain clouds with their shining silver linings, or the white wisps that scurried across the sky on a windy day.
Clear blue skies were fair but tasted like food without salt to him.
