Disclaimer: The Professor’s character’s; my thoughts. His were better, but what do you expect in 100 words? ;p

It suddenly struck him. Boromir was the Steward’s heir. Legolas was heir to Mirkwood; Gimli‘s father was... something important Mr Frodo said. Merry would be Master, even Pippin would become Thain, if he survived that long! And what was he? For once Sam couldn’t disguise a downcast face. Aragorn noticed,

“Why so sad, Master Gamgee?”

“Well... I was just thinking... how they’ve all got an inheritance, ‘cept me.”

“That’s unlike you Sam, to worry about wealth.”

“Oh it ain’t money,” he said hastily, “I just want... to be in my rightful place.”

Aragorn sighed, “That I do understand.”
