King and Steward perused the ballad- sheet, their features convulsed with mirth.

“Strange, after so many years of trying to keep my identity hidden, to hear my name on every street corner,” said Aragorn. “More curious still, I do not recall slaying a dragon and rescuing a Haradri princess!”

“Such is the price of fame, my lord,” Faramir replied. “Neither do I recall snatching the Ring-bearer from the Witch-King’s lair as the minstrels proclaim! You truly saved a Princess, my beloved Éowyn. ”

“Will Men remember us for what we did not do, rather than what we did?” Aragorn mused.
