Career path challenge: Poor Man - 'A Man of Many Parts: Concealed': Kortirion

Title: Concealed
Author: Kortirion
Character: Aragorn and Gandalf
Rating: G
Source: Post-Siege of Minas Tirith
Disclaimer: Tolkien’s, all of it – Kortirion just takes them out the box to play with.

The sea-wind had blown the blackness away, but night gave back the ruined city’s genuine shadows; a comforting darkness to partially obscure the ruined and sorrowful. Gandalf’s whites seemed to glow with shrouded light, but the grey-cloaked man beside him walked head bent and sombre. Now and again he touched a wall or column standing amid the destruction.

The citizens eyed them, but didn’t interrupt the powerful mage and hooded captain, a poor man by his well-worn clothes; they had their own concerns.

“The King,” they whispered, “We heard he’d brought a king... but there’s only a ragged captain here.”
