‘Eregion - land of nothingness.’ Aragorn kicked a grassy tussock grumpily. The tussock hid a rock. His toes connected with the rock. Pain shot through his foot. Furious, with the rock, the region, himself... he almost kicked out again, but restrained himself; sinking to the ground and beating - a soft, turfy bit - with his fist.

He’d woken with a cricked neck; Pippin’s endless chatter, the Dwarfish-Elvish bickering had all combined to put him out of sorts - now this!

He heard a muffled chuckle nearby.

“I can think of better ways to ease frustration”, said Boromir softly.

Aragorn scowled... before laughing aloud.
