4. His Father's Son

Aragorn found him in the gardens of healing, crouched under a shrub, poking at something in the mud. The paw prints left by the warden’s new kitten showed him what had attracted the little boy’s attention.

"Here you are! Your father is searching for you inside. You seem to have strayed," he said, kneeling by the now grubby child.

"I have not, Sire," came the earnest reply, just the slightest touch of indignation in the tiny voice, "I’m going to be an Ithilien ranger. I never stray my path!"

"Just like your father then, I see," responded the King solemnly.


A/N: Lady Wenham suggested Elboron enter the party since he is also a Steward’s son.
