Aragorn stretched out his legs comfortably and pulled at his pipe. It was good to be warm, not out in the midwinter weather. He had enjoyed fresh-baked bread and mashed turnips, the sort of food a Ranger did not often get, with his roast meat.
Tonight's company was small, but Aragorn enjoyed listening to the jokes and stories told, though he remained in his dim corner. Bree-men and hobbits were not comfortable with his sort; he would not intrude on them.
The innkeeper bustled past and refilled Aragorn's flagon.
"Thank you," said Aragorn, lifting it in salute. "Happy Yule, Barliman."
