Summary: Elladan and Elrohir lead Gilraen and young Aragorn to their new life in Imladris. Written for the 'Mealtimes' challenge, Tea. Aragorn asks the question all children on a journey want to know.
"Are we nearly there now?” Aragorn’s tone was plaintive.
“I don’t know, my love; because I don’t know how far we have to go,” Gilraen replied. She looked up. “Elrohir?”

Aragorn considered all this, then looked at Elrohir.
“Will my Papa be there?”
