The youth sat, propped by pillows, in his bed. She had expected to bury him alongside his father and yet he lived; wounds healing, fever gone.

The woman placed a bowl of steaming broth, made with the last of the winter’s bacon, in front of the man at the table. It was hardly a fitting feast for one who had given her back her only son.

Then she remembered.

“Wine!” she said, lifting down a stone jar covered in dust.

Aware of the honour, but expecting little, Aragorn raised the cup, and a shaft of liquid summer warmed him through.
