Long Days And Longer Nights



The long days of riding passed in a blur of sorrow. When Aragorn slept they rode in a grim silence, each lost in memories. Elrohir envied him the easy oblivion of sleep, for the nights too were long and dark, broken only by Gilraen’s stifled weeping.


Aragorn stirred in his arms, yawned and blinked. “Elro? I hungry.”


Elrohir smiled. “You have slept the morning away, little one. It is time for lunch now. See? We have waybread, meat and fresh water.”


“Can’t we stop?”


“You are a warrior now,” Elladan reminded him, “and warriors eat their lunch in the saddle.”
