Containers challenge - Saddlebags - 'Safely Packed Away' : Kortirion

Title: Safely Packed Away
Author: Kortirion
Character: Aragorn
Rating: G

Disclaimer: Tolkien’s imaginarium

There’s a correct way to pack a saddlebag, what’s last needed goes in first... a lesson learned long ago – always put what you need to find in a hurry near the top. That was the dilemma – what would be first...? Tinder-box? Dry shirt? Bandage and salve? Or fresh bow-string, whetstone, mending thread?

He’d laid out his well-worn chattels numerous times – carefully deciding what to take, what to leave... now, strings were in his quiver, whetstone and tinder-box at his belt... everything in place.

Gazing across the camp-fire, Aragorn swallowed hard, realising... this stranger would have him unpack his long-sequestered heart.
