Challenge: Weather (Mist)
Author: Kaylee Arafinwiel
Characters: Aragorn II, Thengel, OC
Summary: Twenty-six year old Aragorn, prompted by Gandalf to sojourn in the realms of his future allies, seeks a place at the court of Thengel King. Targon, my OC, is the child of Arador’s old age and seventeen years older than Aragorn; Dirhael and Ivorwen have cared for him as a son since his father’s death when he was fourteen.
The swirling mists that rose from Anduin lay heavy on the Emyn Muil, until dawn broke over the plains of Rohan. Aragorn rode beside Targon, glad of his elder kinsman’s company.
When they approached Meduseld, he tried not to stare, and once in the presence of Thengel King, bowed respectfully to his elder.
“Greetings, Thengel King,” Targon said, when bidden to speak. “I am Targon son of Dirhael; this is my nephew, Thorongil son of Beren. We come to take service with you, if you will accept us.”
Thengel smiled. “Be welcome, then. Come, we will speak more over luncheon.”
