Another drabble set on 'The Heart of Eryn Ithil' and the journey to The West.

Title; Luggage
Challenge: Unmentionables; horseshoe
Characters: Gimli
Rating: PG;
Source: LotR.

Gimli’s trunks were heavy.

One did, indeed, contain mithril and precious jewels stored in amongst his clothes.

“That’s what they’d expect a dwarf to carry – why disappoint them, eh? There may well be things that we will need to finance there – and mithril and gems should be a fairly well understood currency…”

But in the other trunk, amongst his tools, was a horseshoe. An odd thing for a horse-averse dwarf, but he had kept it for many years. This was his memento of the Ring War; not his axe, which he’d given to Eldarion, but a shoe from long-gone Arod.
