A moment lost
Somewhere between Rivendell and Minas Tirith he had taken on the mantle of kingship.
It had not fallen upon his shoulders when he entered the city, nor when the winged crown came to rest upon his brow – by then it was already there.
Quite when the moment happened he did not now know. Strange to think that something he had wrestled with, fought against, dreaded, for so long had come to pass without his realising.
But the shadows of the Dead could have told him, for only the rightful king could summon them, and they knew him when he called.
