Containers challenge - Pitcher - 'Some Welcome Relief' : Kortirion

Title: Some Welcome Relief
Author: Kortirion
Character: Aragorn
Rating: G
Source: Middle-earth
Disclaimer: Tolkien’s world and all that dwells in it.

Summer heat... the air thick under clouds that held the oppressive warmth close as a lover. Aragorn wiped his face with one hand, drying slick fingers on his thigh. He felt the sweat trickling slowly down his chest as he toiled onwards... ‘Soon, soon...’

Thirst-quenching ale filled his thoughts... what to order? Barliman’s Special? Or perhaps, Golden Tom?

Nob pumped water into a large pitcher as the sweat-stained ranger approached and stood staring at the crisp, clear water. Nervously, he offered it to the dust-caked man... then laughed aloud when instead of drinking – Aragorn empted the lot over his head!
