“Who goes there?”

“’Tis I. You requested my presence, Gildas, but not for what purpose.”

“My King, forgive my boldness. I’m loath to trouble you, but hoped you might explain why this wretch stalks the tower-walk wailing.”

“We’ll watch together; take me to where he walks.”

“Up this staircase to the battlements, and about midnight, when the Moon climbs higher, you’ll see him.”

There came the shadowy figure, a slipper clutched in ghostly hands.

“Ah…” said Aragorn, “he sadly needs a cordwainer. Have one fetched.”

“My Lord?”

“You call them cobblers – for, see? Your poor ghost has lost his sole.”
