Steel clashed against steel. Neither man was willing to yield an inch as the deadly dance continued.

Sweat poured down their faces, but neither dared pause to wipe his brow. Expert swordsmen both, they were evenly matched.

Their wives watched, unable to take their eyes from the combatants.

Éowyn gasped as her lord narrowly avoided a thrust.

The contest continued, thrust and parry, weave, duck and then strike!

Arwen beamed as Aragorn finally overcame his opponent's defences.

“I concede. Andúril has bested me!”

“It was a close match, well fought, my friend.”

King and Steward sheathed their swords and embraced.
