Reaping the Reward


Reaping the Reward



The two men were alike enough to be brothers, or maybe father and son. They stood, together, looking at the re-cultivated farmland below them.

In the lingering sunlight of the summer’s evening men still worked with scythes; the soft, rhythmic, swish unheard at this distance, but easily imagined. Women, and children, also made use of the warm evening to follow the reapers, gathering the long wheat stalks into stooks, an occasional peal of laughter heard, faintly, on the breeze by the two watching.

“This,” Aragorn said to his Steward, “this is why we fought through all those long, dark, years.”
