“I luv you... I really luv...”

The ranger’s inebriated slur faded as his head slumped. Halbarad hoisted the young man who’d be his future Captain more firmly onto his shoulders – determined to struggle back to their lodgings. ‘My... it had been a good party!’

Vidugavia’s birthday, and three cartloads of his family had arrived with venison, matured cheese... and many stoneware flasks of triple-distilled potato wine!

Halbarad staggered into their shared room, lurched towards Aragorn’s bed... and toppled over, his snoring burden weighing him down.

"...We home?” Aragorn mumbled, “...Good – wanna say something...”

Now horizontal, Halbarad marvelled at the gently spinning room.

“I luv you...”

“Yes,” whispered Halbarad, “...me too.”
