Avon's birthday drabble over at HASA.
"See, Aragorn, I have brought you the Sun." His smile dances with the dawn light across the white stone of my bedchamber; but he has known me too long to conceal the pain flickering behind his clear eyes.
Together we risked the long dark of Moria; together we walked among the Dead. For me he rode to Pelargir and heard the gull's cry; yet for me he has resisted the Sea's call these many years.
Now he will heed it at last, and in our parting that thought brings me peace. I wish you joy of the West, Legolas, mellonen.
