The four men huddled around the campfire sharing their meagre rations.

“Would that I had gold to buy a decent meal,” said one.

“I’d buy a silver bracelet for my daughter,” said another.

“My sweetheart deserves gemstones to adorn her slender neck,” said the third. “What about you, Captain?”

“My beloved needs no gold, silver or gems to adorn her,” Thorongil replied. ”She is fairer than the stars. In my dreams I gladly lay a kingdom at her feet.”

The others laughed. Thorongil had wild dreams for a captain.

Long after his companions slept, Thorongil sat gazing at the stars.
