The chill wind snapped with sleet. Aragorn had hoped that he would be able to spend Midwinter Night at the Prancing Pony, but his path had run otherwise.
He half-filled a pot with water, adding dried meat and vegetables to simmer into a hearty stew overnight. For now, he must make do with bread and cheese. He wrapped himself in his blankets and gazed at the fire, recalling his youth in Elrond's house, the candles and garlands, the roasts and puddings there. He regretted leaving none of them behind; only wished he could be certain of seeing Arwen once more.
