The Brewer’s Art

The aroma wafting from the pot was smoky, acrid, exotic.

“Something new, my lord.” Mormegil had an uncanny ability to read Denethor’s mind. “Second Cook suggested you might find it intriguing.” And so he did, calling for another pot at mid-day, and again late afternoon; but in the evening Mormegil returned empty-handed.

“She says she’ll not be held responsible for your sleeplessness, but promises a pot first thing tomorrow, even before breakfast.”

What impudence! Denethor thought, then reconsidered. If she holds the secret to this brew, I’d best stay on her good side. Until I can discover it for myself.
