Transactions challenge - Buy: At What Cost: Kortirion

Title: At What Cost
Author: Kortirion
Character: The New King
Rating: G
Source: LotR
Disclaimer: Tolkien made this place and these and them.

The battle had cost them all dearly, there were many to mourn, but... theirs the victory... he was king!

He eased his left hand, flexing damaged fingers ...good job it was not his sword-hand - though that was small consolation against the excruciating pain ...It would heal. Best not dwell on such things...

He shrugged the fur-lined cloak around him... after mid-night the air grew chill. It was important he complete his battle-report before the memories faded... if they ever would.

In the lamplight, Isildur considered, then slowly finished writing...

‘...is precious to me, though I buy it with great pain.’
