5. Best man - Tanaqui

The morrow’s bridegroom is a little tipsy. “Your turn next,” he slurs. “Chieftain needs a wife. An heir. What are you waiting for?”

Aragorn winces, not at Halbarad’s grip on his arm as they stagger across the courtyard, but at his words. “A kingdom,” he mutters. “Or two.”

Halbarad halts, turns to face his friend. “So there is someone!” he cries triumphantly. “Who is she?”

Silence. At last a single word escapes Aragorn’s lips: “Arwen.”

“Ah….” Halbarad grasps Aragorn’s hand. “You helped me win Íreth when I doubted. I will do what I can to help you to your bride.”
