4. Olive Branches

They meet upon the red fields, Captain and Chieftain: Eärnur and Aranarth. The kiss of peace tastes of ashes: Welcome to Arnor.

Later, at Aranarth's fire, Eärnur mentions casually: "Regarding certain letters concerning succession—"

"Gondor arrived in good time to save our lives," Aranarth interrupts; "Just late enough to see Arnor fall. Roads are cut, defenses destroyed, earth salted—my first duty is to the North's people."

"Ah."

But ere Eärnur can rest content with his work, Aranarth adds: "Remember this morn, cousin. For our claim stands still; we shall redeem it one day, even as Gondor redeemed us."
