Relief from the Heat

The King threw down his pen upon the blotter and rubbed at his forehead. “Pah! Enough of this. My head is swimming with the heat!”

His Steward considered him, concern melting into amusement. “Well, my lord friend, the realm will not fail if we do not finish revising this treaty today. Why don’t we consider taking a break and visit the river? There’s a hidden bay on the Anduin that is conducive to swimming….”

Pages and clerks took interest—a swimming party accompanying their Lord King Elessar and Prince Faramir to the Anduin was definitely not to be missed!
